Inspired by Perry Como’s Catch a Falling Star, here is my version, a short love note dedicated to my shining star….
Take a little star and put it in your pocket
Never let it get away
So when that starless one taps you on your shoulder
Give that star to him
and never let him go….
In life, all you need is that one star to light up your world,

Are you happy?
Happiness is a choice. Choose it. It’s not hard.
Just live life as if everything is magnificent, a miracle. Look beyond the imperfections, the teeny things that don’t matter because there’s bigger more important things that do. Enjoy, seize and love every moment. In reality it’s not really what you have that makes you happy… or who or where you are, or what you’re doing….It’s what you think. If you’re in a miserable place but you think beautiful, happy thoughts, then you’re happy. Believe that if you think it, it will be. So if you want to be happy, there is no other way but to be.
Don’t go looking for it. Because it will find you. I promise.
Love yourself first. Love the world and the people around you, and everything will fall into place.
The person you are meant to be with- he/she will come around. The secret is to know that the this person, they’re already a part of you. And when that one day come, you will know.
So don’t worry…be happy.
Renowned fine jewelry designer, natural history fetishist and philanthropist Monique Péan’s Fall 2013 Collection features 150 million-year-old dino bones. Yes, darlings…dinosaur bones.
Who would have thought fossilized bones of extinct animals from hundreds of millions of years ago would even be considered as fashion accessories?
Péan did, with passion…and with a purpose. In 2006, she debuted her eco-friendly and sustainable fine jewelry collection inspired by Alaskan Native art and culture, featuring her signature fossilized woolly mammoth and fossilized walrus ivory. The collection is comprised of varying fine jewelry styles, from statement necklaces, earrings and bracelets to pendants, beaded bracelets, bangles and rings. In her current collections, Péan uses other ecological, natural materials such as 18 carat 100% recycled gold, sustainable buffalo horn, fair-trade precious stones and repurposed diamonds and diamond slices to name a few.

Péan also established the Vanessa Péan Foundation in honor of her younger sister who passed away at the tender age of sixteen. The foundation’s focus is to provide scholarships to underprivileged students in Haiti.
