A Good Girl Welcome’s You Back…

My new journal

Hi Diva’s, Bombshell’s and Gentlemen, I hope you had a marvelous long weekend.  For me it was absolutely fantastic! I got some sun, accomplished quite a few projects and overall got the rest I needed.  I haven’t had a break since January.  Being an entrepreneur, blogger and all around woman of substance is a lot of work! I’m now refreshed and ready to take on the world for the next 6 months!

One of my projects was to open my Etsy Store.  I’m performing a soft opening right now, with just a few items.  I hope to have my grand opening (more items) within the next week or so.  I should also have my store banner up soon.  Take a peek at www.etsy.com/shop/maylanascloset There is a 10% discount for all my Blog Followers, FB, IG and Twitter friends.

I just love this quote from my new journal

While on my travels I came across the cute journal above, which was on sale for 3.99!!  I actually picked it up because I liked the pop-art cover and really thought it was a novel of some kind (the title really attracted me). I was pleasantly surprised to find out, it was an actual journal and the icing on the cake were the quotes within:

 These are just a few of the  quotes inside (there’s about 100 pages).  We need to remind ourselves of these and any other motivational quotes on a daily basis.  If you haven’t already, it’s time to make the next 6 months matter, make something extraordinary happen.  No more procrastinating, we’re nearly 6 months in.  What will you have to show for it?

Enjoy your first day of many wonderful things to come.

All Star Wonder Women…

In Charities, New Loves! on May 26, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I’m not obsessed with Converse sneakers {really I’m not!}, but I heard about these Wonder Woman All Star sneakers, and had to conduct research and post them for you.  In my opinion they are just too cool for words, and yes I’m getting a pair.

 All women should own a pair of these.  Why? Because we are exactly that, WONDERFUL!  The things we accomplish everyday, taking care of our families, holding down careers and just plain taking care of life for ourselves and others is beyond extraordinary (without the magic lasso no less); and most importantly, we are DESERVING!  Go on Rock your Wonder Woman All Stars today!

Available at Journeys ~ Price $59.99 http://www.journeys.com/product.aspx?id=215021

Enjoy your weekend.

The Long Weekend…

In Daily Musings on May 25, 2012 at 11:01 am

 

Well it’s finally here, the weekend we’ve been waiting for.  For me it means 4 whole days of relaxation, cocktails, a good book and fabulous company.  It’s time for some bright colours, high-heeled sandals and teeny bikinis if you can, or an elegant one piece if you can’t/or don’t want to.  It’s all about looking good, feeling good and putting your stylish foot forward; and just being you!  let’s get ready for summer!  Today I’m posting a Smorgasbord of pics for ideas and inspiration.

 

Have yourselves an amazing, tranquil, and pleasurable weekend.  I know I’m going to!

Smooches!

Walking In Flowers…

In Daily Musings on May 24, 2012 at 4:08 pm

5/ 24 Update: I just found out from fellow fashionista, Evy, that these are now on sale at Nordstroms for $59.00!! Get yours @ www.nordstrom.com limited sizes.  I’m sure they’re on sale at other websites too; I’ll let you know.

I’m just loving the Herena floral print shoe by Aldo. Very much in tune with this season’s bright colours floating around this spring and summer season.  For your outfit, I would suggest you pick a neutral colour as your base, pick one of the colours in the shoe if you like, this way you won’t look like a walking botanical garden.  Make these shoes the statement of your outfit.

Price: $90.00

Happy Hump Day Dahhlings!!!

Before & After…

In Daily Musings on May 22, 2012 at 12:01 pm

 

I bought this vintage mirror a couple of years ago, with the intention of repainting it.  Alas it has moved around  my living room numerous times, before I finally relented and decided enough was enough.

I’ve always loved the blue of Tiffany boxes and I was determined to find the colour, which I did a couple of weeks ago in Home Depot.

Here is the finished product.  I won’t say it was a joy painting this mirror, As an Aquarian,  I love instant gratification, and this was NOT instant enough for me, but I persevered and I’m now the proud owner of a gorgeously painted mirror.

BTW: You may have noticed that there are now ads on my blog, I’ve been accepted as part of the WordPress AdWords Beta program.  AdWords is Google’s flagship advertising product, which can become a source of reveue (please click); so just in case you were wondering, there you are.
