Embrace Your Body

 

And every single day, no matter how full or slim your body is. No matter how many so-called flaws and blemishes, embrace them all.  Embrace every single curve (or non curve), embrace and love every single part of you, because YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE UNIQUE!

Being healthy is more important than what society claims beautiful to be.  Eat well, Exercise well,  Sleep well, Be well.

Have a beautifully blessed day!

#enditmovement

I just found out about the End It Movement via Instagram.  27 million men, women and children are trapped in slavery around the world today. In brothels. In factories. In mines. On street corners. In homes. In the shadows, HIDDEN!!! Yet out in broad daylight, in plain sight here in America.   Today, February 27, draw a Red “X” on your hand today, to join the End It Movement.  For more information click here

Post your red “X” photo on Instagram, using #enditmovement, share on Facebook, Twitter and all other social media sites.  This madness has to stop!

Stay Beautifully and Wonderfully Blessed

What’s Up with WhatsApp?

19 Billion… Billion with a “B”!  Jan Koum made out like a bandit yesterday, don’t you think?  I love his rags to riches story “Food Stamp to Billionaire” It reminds me that anything is possible in this world.  As you’ve probably heard, Facebook acquired WhatsApp  for a cool 19 Billion.  I’m actually a user and fan of WhatsApp, as it’s a wonderful free way to keep in touch via text message with my friends and family back home in London.  

WhatsApp is huge in Europe and Asia.  You can send photos, videos and record messages.  I’ve told a few friends about it here in the U.S. and they love it.  The beautiful thing about WhatsApp is that it’s free the first year and then 99 cents per year after that.

Go to your app store to download WhatsApp if you’re looking for a free way to text without using up your data plan.

Love You!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my Style Mavens, and especially to all my single ladies, who may feel a little left out and alone today.  Never ever let this day make you feel any less than you are or like you’re missing something, because you’re not.  You are Whole, Beautiful, Fabulous, Creative and Talented.

For all you single ladies, here’s your anthem “I’m Every Woman” by Chaka Khan

Love and Kisses to you all… SmoochesValentine's Day, #valentinesday, Love, #Love #maylanascloset #maylanaschronicles

Love Your Weight…

Hello Darlings! So good old Valentine’s Day is upon us again, and even though it may be too late to order a gift for yourself or significant other to arrive tomorrow, you can still purchase these lovely paper weights from Mark and Graham.  I love this store, you can buy the most lovely paper, monogrammed stationery, and desk accessories, as well as some really beautiful leather items. I love anything paper or any item that’s going to make my home office look elegant.  I think these fit the bill.

And ladies, if you’re single on Valentine’s Day, treat yourselves to one of these, and place it in prime position on your desk, as a reminder to always LOVE YOU FIRST♥

Here is one of my favourite poems from Nikki Giovanni’s book “Love Poems” which I’ve owned for years, and always love reading from time to time.  Have a fabulously blessed Valentine’s Day Darlings… Mwah

Love Is

Some people forget that love is 
tucking you in and kissing you 
“Good night” 
no matter how young or old you are

Some people don’t remember that 
love is 
listening and laughing and asking 
questions 
no matter what your age

Few recognize that love is 
commitment, responsibility 
no fun at all 
unless

Love is 
You and me

No Super Bowl XLVIII Here!!!

What I’ll be doing during Super Bowl

I’m really not into the Super Bowl, every news, and talk show program this past week has made a reference or dedicated an entire show to this event. The only thing about the Super Bowl that entertains me, are the commercials, and to see which player is more handsome than the other, for me that’s the full extent of the Super Bowl.  So this evening is going to be a night of pampering, book reading, journal writing, watching Downton Abby and catching up on all those shows that have been sitting in my DVR since last year.

Susie Larson Blessings For The Evening #maylanaschronicles Maylana's Chronicles

I was given a gift at Christmas, of this beautiful little book, which I’m reading right now; it’s Susie Larson’s “Blessing’s for the Evening.  This is such an elegant little book, which is quite heavy for its size, with a beautiful padded cover, complete with gorgeous photography and inspirational quotes to help you wind down your evening on a positive note.  The premise is to read a devotional each night, but it’s so beautifully written,  and feels so lovely in your hands, you can’t help but read a few pages at a time.  You can see Susie’s beautiful quotes on Pinterest.

 

Blessings for the evening quote

 

For those of you who are football fans… Enjoy! May your team win! I’ll be sipping a glass of red.
