Let’s Dance To A New Week…

In Daily Musings on December 3, 2012 at 9:35 am

Let's Dance

Let’s dance because this is a brand new week; new beginnings, new experiences! After an insanely crazy, stressful and mind-blowing week last week, I’m ready to start this week off on a beautiful high and positive note.

I’m really excited about this week, my sister who is in charge of inventory, and who has been procuring some beautiful items in London for the Maylana’s Closet boutique, sent over some gorgeous pieces, which will be appearing in the Blog Shop and on www.etsy.com/shop/maylanascloset.  I am looking forward to showing you what she’s found.  I will be spending most of today photographing and getting ready to  upload, so stay tuned.

Speaking of the Blog Shop, I am finally going to open the boutique, which has been on hold for months; watch out for its grand opening of pre-loved, new and vintage items.  All transactions will be handled securely through PayPal.

To get our day started, here’s one of my favourite songs by David Bowie Let’s Dance to get you in the Monday mood.

It’s December 3, which means we are in full-blown holiday shopping mode, exactly 22 days to go!!  Over the coming weeks, I’ll be posting potential gift ideas, from inexpensive to super extravagant {“Maylana’s Dream List“} What’s on your wish list for the holidays?

Thankful

Yes I am!!

Wishing you a Wonderful, Inspiring and Joyful week… Go for yours!!!

Love, Light & Passion

Aids Day2

34 million people are infected with the HIV/AIDS virus around the world.  In the United States alone, more than one million people are living with HIV, and more than 500,000 are people of colour.  It’s time to get the numbers to ZERO!!!

Get Yourself Tested, Know Your Status, Buy and USE condoms… IT’S IMPORTANT!  I’m talking about your life here! Always choose YOUR LIFE over unprotected sex, it’s that simple!

My Target + Neiman Marcus Moment…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on December 1, 2012 at 7:53 am

Well Dahhlings, it’s finally here! The legendary partnership between Target and Neiman Marcus. What do I think? Well I logged on at 6:30 a.m. this morning looking to be completely wowed and I WASN’T.  Everything just looked a little blah and inexpensive, I was going to use the word cheap, but decided to be nice!  Now before you start screaming, remember this is just my personal opinion.  Yes I know it’s Target (which I love, who doesn’t?), but the collab between them and Liberty of London is still my overall favourite, and nothing has really compared, except the Missoni duvet set, sheets and shower curtain {which I sadly didn’t get}.

The Target website seemed pretty limited, so I’m sure there is so much more in the stores.  I did see some nice things in the lookbook which did not appear online, so again maybe you just have to go to the store.

The only items which caught my eye, were the Carolina Herrera stationary set, the Brian Atwood leather gloves and the Alice + Olivia bike at $499.  Also, I really liked the Tracy Reese blouse and ceramic plates.  I  did order the stationary set for myself and my sister because we both love paper  {I still might order the Tracy Reese plates}.  I thought about the Brian Atwood gloves long and hard, but again, I just wasn’t moved by them.  If they’re still around and I see them in person (which I doubt), and the quality is nice, I might cave in.  If you find items you love in the collection, or just your thoughts about it, let me know.  Visit www.target.com

Happy shopping!
