The Many Colours Of Tom Ford…

In Daily Musings, Object's of Desire on November 26, 2012 at 2:53 pm

 

I haven’t written an Objects Of Desire post in a little while, but here’s one that caught my attention a few days ago.  Mr. Tom Ford has released a complete set of his beautiful nail lacquers exclusively for Neiman Marcus priced at $480.00! 

This  exclusive 16 colour set has every possible shade you would ever need to carry your chic wardrobe from now to next spring/summer to enhance your chic wardrobe.  Tom Ford nail lacquers retail for approximately $30 dollars each; why would you buy a $30 nail lacquer?  Because you’re absolutely worth it! Again this is an Object of Desire, so maybe Santa will leave this under the tree for you, if you’ve been good this year.

Visit Neiman Marcus here

Well today is back to work Monday, after our long 4 day weekend. This is the real countdown to Christmas; how is your gift buying going?  Have you started? Are you going to wait until christmas eve; or are you just buying a little something for you?

Have yourselves a Positive, Productive and Exhilarating week!

 

Shop Til You Drop & Small Business Saturday…

In Daily Musings on November 23, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Well now that you’re 10 pounds heavier and possibly a few hundred to a thousand dollars lighter, due to Black Friday shopping,  I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving Day; giving thanks for your family, friends and where you are at this time in your life {I hope it’s a good place}.

Personally I don’t get sucked into the Black Friday shopping hype, in my opinion its major publicity in overdrive by the big retailers; I just truly prefer to shop in the comfort of my own home online, or go out to the stores when they first open on a lovely Saturday, and not be crushed in a wave of people pushing and shoving to get that “As Advertised” item.

If you were able to procure that special item you’ve been coveting, good for you, it’s nice when you get that special something for yourself or as a gift for someone else at a really good deal.

Tomorrow, November 24 is Small Business Saturday, and we small businesses count on you, especially at this time of the year.  So before you spend all of your money at the big box and high-end retailers, please give us small fry a thought, the beautiful, handmade, vintage and one of a kind items you can find from us are second to none.  If you have a small business you’d love to promote, either leave the name of your business in the comments section of this blog or leave your info at my Facebook fan page www.facebook.com/maylanascloset.

You can visit my Etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/maylanascloset ~ I hope to have more new items uploaded by 2pm tomorrow… See you there!

This beautiful twinset will be available tomorrow 11/24 {around noon} in the Maylana’s Closet Etsy store. Brand new from Portobello Road, London

Countdown To The Target & Neiman Marcus Collaboration…

In Daily Musings on November 19, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Happy Monday Dahhlings, well believe it or not this is Thanksgiving week! Where did the time go?   A moment ago we were simmering to a boil in 100 degree heat, now we’re staring Thanksgiving and Christmas in the face. Did this year fly by or what?  As you’re well aware, this is the official start of the holiday shopping season. What are you treating yourself to?

This brings me to the legendary partnership between Target and Neiman Marcus, which starts December 1, could there not be a better pairing? Two of my favourite stores to say the very least.  For me this is nothing short of BRILLIANT!

This is such a big deal that the purchase quantity is limited to 5 per item {no fighting ladies!}.  With 24 of some of the most leading designers, such as: Derek Lam, Carolina Herrera, Diane von Furstenberg, Brian Attwood, Alice+Olivia, the list goes on, this is sure to be one coveted collection.  {and of course they’ll show up on eBay at some astronomical prices}.

Are we going to have another Missoni for Target stampede, which crashed Target’s website for hours?  Stay tuned!

Happy Monday Luvvies, have a Productive, Amazing and an extra Chic Monday.

 

My XO Cafe…

In Daily Musings on November 14, 2012 at 3:43 pm

 

 

One of my favourite liqueurs is Patrón XO Cafe.  This super smooth coffee liqueur which is a blend of Arabica coffee and premium Patrón Silver tequila, is one of the nicest drinks to have.

Great on its own; or try, half a cup Patron XO Cafe, a couple of tablespoons of Carnation milk with a few cubes of ice in a blender, rotated on high, will cause you to have created one creamy and potent cocktail.  Try it in your coffee one Sunday morning, you’ll never look at coffee the same way again!

Happy Wednesday!

I thought this was such a stunning photograph, I had to post it!

I hope your Monday has been Inspiring, Productive and that whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it with Passion

And remember…

True beauty is skin deep. Not many people will have the patience or the capacity to see it in you.

Treasure the ones that see your beauty and be patient with the ones that don’t.

Monday Tidings…

In Daily Musings on November 12, 2012 at 9:06 am

Happy Monday Dahhlings! I hope you had an amazing weekend.  Mine was contemplative and peaceful.  I’m totally loving this Anya Hindmarch shopper.  What a stylish way to carry the obligatory magazines and newspapers.  Unfortunately its’ no longer available; but you can contact the fashion advisers at Net-a-Porter who may be able make an alternative suggestion for you.  Click here

What are you reading today?

I’m coming to the end of “The 500” by Matthew Quirk.  He is a relatively new author, and I’ll have to say, he really took off with this debut book.  Absolutely loving it!! If you’re a fan of James Patterson {which I am}, you’ll love the pace of this thriller.  Find it here at Amazon.

I’d love to wish you an Inspiring, Creative and Incredible week; and ladies remember to tell yourself…

Happy Monday!

TGIF… Really!!!

In Daily Musings on November 9, 2012 at 4:00 pm

It’s been a long stressful week, so, I’ve decided to post some random images with lots of colour; more to cheer me up than anything else; therefore, this post is a little self-indulgent (actually a lot :-)).  Here goes…  The poster above is an image featured by the Urban Forms Gallery, Lodz Poland. I’d love this in my living room… Yes really!!!

I love all the colours involved with this photograph.  Don’t you just love her hand jewelry? I’d love to obtain one of those for myself!!

African glam at it’s best! I want this dress! The only way to go to market!

I’m totally in love with this Zac Posen dress from his 2013 collection

I continue to get asked about this gorgeous wedding dress,which has generated some major bride envy.  Australian shoe queen, Terry Biviano’s mermaid inspired wedding gown, was designed by J’Aton. http://www.jatoncouture.com/ As I’ve said before this dress is simply stunning! See blog post here

 “Bayala” by Isabelle Sauvineau Now here’s colour for you.  Absolutely beautiful piece of art (Copyright Isabelle Sauvineau)

Here’s a piece of art titled “Aquar’elle” by Adrien Donot, that really inspires me.  I think it’s the hair, the blackness of it against the rest of her and of course the Vidal Sassoon inspired bob. (Copyright Adrien Donot)

Choreographer, Fatima Robinson, always colourful in her dance.

Although this is not a colour image, the grace with which this child dances in the street, absorbed in his own colourful world, in my eyes makes him graceful and majestic.  He appears totally obsorbed in this one movement; the camera has caught him just right. Love this photo!

And always remember to tell yourself…

Because you are!

I hope these beautiful images brought some much-needed colour to your day; they did for me. I could have posted so much more, but this post would have gone on forever; maybe I’ll post more over the weekend.  I’d love to wish you an Amazing and Inspiring weekend.

Love ~ Light ~ Passion

The Morning After The Night Before…

The People have spoken…

VOTE!!!!

In Daily Musings on November 6, 2012 at 9:22 am

As a British National residing in the U.S. I am unable to vote.  I pay taxes but can’t vote, something I’ve never understood, but I digress.  As a U.S. Citizen, whether naturalized or born here,  PLEASE exercise your right to vote today.  IT’S IMPORTANT!!!  I know who I’d vote for if I were able to, but since this is not a political blog, I have no interest in debating the issue.

I can’t stress enough how important it is that you do your part today, because whomever your guy may be; if you don’t vote, don’t complain that he didn’t win; your vote could have made the difference.

Have yourselves a fabulous Election day!

Voting never goes out of style!
