New Year, Birthdays And Me…

In Daily Musings on January 5, 2013 at 11:02 am


Hi Dahlings!!! I’M BAAACK!!! I had a lovely Christmas and New Years and lots of rest!! Although I will say my rest also consisted of crocheting hats, I have been so busy with orders and welcoming new customers to the Maylana’s Closet boutique. I hope you rang in the New Year fabulously, and on day five you’re still sticking to whatever New Years resolutions you may have made.  I did not make resolutions per se, but there are things I WILL accomplish this year. I am very much looking forward to 2013, This is going to be an amazing year!!

Today my blog turns 1-year-old!! I am so proud!  According to my WordPress stats, my blog welcomed nearly 80,000 visitors from nearly every corner of the earth last year; for me that’s a major accomplishment.  When I started this blog, I had no idea what was going to happen with it, I just knew it would be an avenue for me to express myself, show my creative side and connect with the world.  I’ve always wanted this blog to be a cross between Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, O ~Oprah and the New York Times style section rolled into one. I plan for it to be so much more.

This blog has always been for women in the know, who love beautiful things. I want to thank all of my followers and fellow bloggers from all over the world, for being active participants, posting comments, sharing advice and just giving everything a newbie blogger could ask for.

Lots happening this year.  Over the coming months, look out for more photos taken by me with my Canon T3i {which I’m still learning to use}, more style features, Maylana about town, informative articles, and so much more.  Very soon, for a couple of weeks, this blog will be all about my visit to my hometown, London, England.  I will be, blogging about my trip, where I’ll be celebrating a milestone birthday {Jan 21}.  I bet you can’t guess what milestone this is! :-).  Look out for lots of photos, new finds for the Maylana’s Closet boutique, and all the fun I plan to have while there.

So to start the celebrations, click here to sing along to Stevie Wonder’s Happy Birthday.

Wishing you all a Blessed, Fabulous, Amazing, and Prosperous 2013!!!




  1. You are too cool and suave. I like your style. Thank you for sharing your gift.

  2. Congrats on turning 1! Can’t wait to read about your trip! Happy new year to you

    • Thanks so much darling. I’m looking forward to writing about my trip with lots of pics… Stay tuned! Happy New Year to you too.

  3. Hey Maylana! Happy New Year to you! I had a look at your shop recently …lovely, beautiful and I think it’s wonderful that you crochet (have I spelled that right?) your own stylish pieces – my mum is great at crochet and I remember her making all sorts when I was a child, but it’s something I am yet to learn how to do! May be one day I will find the time to take on another hobby! It’s a shame you don’t deliver to New Zealand. I see you’re off to your home town …have a wonderful time. My hometown is Northamptonshire in England, I have not been back there for over five years now. Looking forward to your future postings 🙂

    • Hi darling!! Happy new year to your too. Thanks so much for your lovely message. I love to crochet (yes you spelled it right 🙂 it’s the most relaxing thing and make a business out of it is a bonus! Darling I would ship to where you are just let me know what you’re interested in.

      I hope this new year finds you well and you have an amazing year! Please watch out for the “London” posts, I plan to make them fun! It’s time for you also to take a trip back home!
