What is Cigars and Jewelry?

Cigars and Jewelry was originally inspired by a conversation that took place in the 1950s classic movie, Gigi, starring Leslie Caron.

Aunt Alicia:
Love, my dear Gigi, is a thing of beauty like a work of art, and like a work of art it is created by artists. The greater the artist, the greater the art. And what makes a great artist?
Gigi:
Cigars and Jewelry?
Aunt Alicia:
Gigi, you’re from another planet.

Gigi Engle grew up very wealthy. She lived a very blessed life. A childhood in Maui, private schools, trips to Europe. Then, her family lost everything.

Gigi has had to learn to stand on her own and rely on her own intuition and dedication to her life goals. She took a leap and moved to New York City to chase her dreams of being a writer and to become the woman she knows she is meant to be.

This blog is her journey. Through it she hopes to learn, like Gigi did in the movie that inspired her, that love and life are more than just cigars and jewelry.
