Hello Darlings!

In honour of National Lipstick Day 2014, I had to post one of my absolute favourites, which I have posted here before.  I absolutely love Tom Ford’s Cherry Lush, which is my all time favourite red to wear, when I’m in the mood.

Another favourite colour of mine is Laura Mercier’s Dusk, which just this second, I’ve found out has been discontinued!! I’ve found it on Fragrance.net (click link above).  I must have it! Dusk was the perfect pink, with a mauve hue, when you just needed a little something.  I normally layer this colour with Touch (above) by MAC which is also one of my go to nudes.

Whatever colour you decide to wear, pucker up, wear it confidently, and be the amazing Sylista you truly are.

Remember to live life with passion!

I came across this Joss Whedon quote this morning, and found it absolutely fitting, it really spoke to me, so I’m sharing it with you, to give you a motivational food for thought.

Quote - Joss Whedon

Whatever’s your passion, go for it with gusto.  There’s no time like the present, don’t wait for  tomorrow, START TODAY!!!

Birkenstock Love…

Birkenstocks - Arizona Silver

 

You’ve just got to love Birkenstocks.  They have been around since the beginning of time. (at least it seems that way, I think Moses was wearing them!) A shoe that most of us would not have been seen dead in 20 years ago, but has now become an iconic style statement for every Stylista worth her salt and a wardrobe staple.

I myself own a couple of pairs, which I bought back in the mid 90’s and early 2000’s, way before they became the trend of 2014.  They are still  going strong today, and are in great condition.  The original Birkenstock, appears to be a shoe, that no matter what you do to them, they still keep going, and the comfort factor cannot be denied.  I think that’s why hippies loved them way back when.

A few companies have jumped on the Birkenstock “style” band wagon, Zara, Target, Steve Madden to name a few, creating their own version of this comfy shoe, but in my opinion, nothing beats the real thing.  Created in 1774, when Louis XVI ascended to the throne of France, a history tidbit that really has nothing to do with this post, but I thought I’d throw it in for good measure!

I don’t think this unlikely style statement is going anywhere any time soon.

Maylana Future One Edit

Oh my!!! It’s been a while Darlings!  What with my travels to Los Angeles for the BET Awards and BET Experience; and then back and forth to New York and beyond, it certainly has been a busy time in the land of Maylana.  Unfortunately this has given me very little time to blog.  I hope you are enjoying our foray into summer.  It’s been sweltering in DC, it was definitely much cooler and less humid in L.A.

Back to the BET Awards and the BET Experience, which was held at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles.  The most enjoyable moment for me was the Mary J. Blige concert at the Staples Center, it was definitely the old Mary on stage, singing hits from her earlier albums from the mid 90’s to the 2000’s; which we all sang along to, with gusto at the top of our lungs, until we were hoarse.

With my crazy and unpredictable schedule, I’m not sure when my next blog post will be, but you can keep up with me on Instagram @ “Maylana” which is easier for me, until my schedule becomes a little more predictable.  In the meantime, enjoy this gorgeous weather, exercise, eat good clean food, and have yourselves the most wonderful time, and don’t forget to throw in some fun for good measure.

Love, Blessings and Light.
