Peacocks & Paper Cranes

These past three weeks of my free time I had spent creating beautiful accessories with special meaning and symbolism.

Earrings and pens made from beautiful and vibrant Tibetan peacock feathers symbolizing beauty, grace, enlightenment, protection, renewal and good luck…

Inspired by my lucky peacock decor that hangs in my living room, I wanted to share the goodness I feel when I see it…The vibrant hues lifts up any spirit, and encourage a promising tomorrow.

I have also learned to fashion paper crane earrings created from high-quality origami yuzen paper. Various beads, gemstones and pearls are incorporated into the paper crane to create unique earrings- none of the designs are the same.

Tsuru, or paper crane is a symbol of hope, peace, happiness, loyalty, good health and yes, good luck. Legend has it is you make fold 1000 paper cranes, and you get to make a wish.

My wish in this lifetime, is to sell one thousand paper crane earrings.

Pens and earrings will be posted for sale on my Etsy within the next few days. Hope you like them! They make perfect Mother’s Day Gifts 😉

AE Project Live Your Life

I am very blessed that in my profession, not only am I able to meet a lot of different people, but I also have the opportunity to see them grow, and make a difference in their lives. Some I work with for a short while, while some end up having a special place in my heart. They learn from me, but I learn from them even more. They, in their own way, inspire me to do better.

Seeing them strive for their dreams, to make them come true- whether it be for modeling, or acting, or pageants….they keep me motivated to keep doing what I’m doing with passion.

Particularly, one of my favorite girls in this industry- Elisabeth Levine, or as we call her Lizzy.

Lizzy

At sixteen years old, Lizzy is one of the most beautiful girls you’ll meet. She is not just pretty on the outside- she is smart, has a good head on her shoulders, and is so full of life. Lizzy will light up any room she walks in without even trying. She also has wonderful parents that supports her 101% in anything she sets her heart to.

Right now, Lizzy is a finalist for American Eagle’s Project Live Your Life.  American Eagle Outfitters is currently on a search for new faces for their upcoming campaign.

Lizzy is currently leading in the Bright & Bold Category.  Not so come off as a saleswoman, but PLEASE VOTE FOR LIZZY.

LizzyAE

Sharing this with you all is a way of showing my support and my love for this amazing young woman.  I am a big fan of Lizzy- I think she is a great example of what girls should be at this age and this generation. She said she wants to make us very proud, but we already are 😉

One day, Lizzy Levine is going to take this world by storm, just wait and see.

Love,
Miss Honey

Love & Happiness

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.

And love?

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.

Dinosaur Bones = Statement Accessories?

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.

MoniquePeanF2013

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.

New Year, No Resolutions…New Attitude

Merry new year my darlings!

Mahalo nui loa for all my amazing friends and family who greeted me on my 26th Birthday this past Thursday, Dec. 27th. Hugs & Kisses from yours truly!

20121230-104738.jpg

2013 is fast approaching and everyone is getting their New Year’s resolution lists in time to begin midnight Tuesday.

No resolutions for me, no sir. I think it’s more important to have a new way of thinking, a new attitude in the different everyday things we deal with rather than shooting for changing things and people that we can’t control.

As I slowly learn in this life, I have come to acknowledge that the only way to deal with unchanging circumstances (and people) is to change the way you relate to them. The changes you make, this new attitude you have will precipitate change in others.

Some fresh and fabulous ways of thinking to get us through the new year. When you’re feeling down, keep these thoughts in mind. Your new attitude will get you back up and moving.

Follow your heart.
Happiness is yours to take.
This is your life and you deserve the absolute best.
Be kind to yourself.
Embrace possibility.
Believe in your power.
Exceed your expectations.
Mean what you say.
Express gratitude.
Know when you did something wrong and apologize.
Never give up.
You’re beautiful and special and there is only one you!
Love your life and the people who make it worthwhile.

My mother’s daughter….

I am my mother’s daughter…
I am her legacy.
I am my mother’s mirror.

I hope that in heaven, she feels the love reflecting from me…my sisters, and my brother.

Because we are our mother’s children.
We are her legacy.

Happy Birthday, Mama.  We all love you very much.

Born on August 1st, our mother would have turned 50 years old today, although she would always be no older than thirty-six in our memories.

Our mother was the most beautiful woman I know-

flawless fair skin, lustrous jet-black hair, dark almond shaped eyes.  Growing up I remember she would walk into a room and everyone would just turn to look at her.

I remembered thinking someday I wanted to have that effect on people. The kind of effect that would just immobilize people because of your presence.

Our mother was as beautiful inside as she was outside- always thinking the good in others, trusting them and loving them so unconditionally even though her heart broke into tiny little pieces doing so.  She was alluring, as she was tragic.

Our mother watches us from heaven.  We feel her presence in our daily lives.  I am her eldest daughter, and I made a promise to her.  My siblings- they know in my own way I am going to keep this promise.  Every year, on the first of August, on our mother’s birthday, I remember this promise and how close I am to fulfilling this.

Mothers Daughter

Because I am my mother’s daughter.

“All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
– Abraham Lincoln

Love,
Honey
