Number 3

Maylana’s Chronicles is THREE!! Oh my goodness! Where did the time go?  It has been an amazing journey. So much has happened in my life, in the 3 years since I decided to become a blogger; some things amazing, some things not so much.  What’s important is, it’s been a fantastic and enlightening journey, I’ve learned so much, and I’m looking forward to showing you what’s to come in 2015.

I want to thank my true followers, who have stuck with me, through little to no blog posts, to blog posts every single day.  Thank you for being here!

I love every single one of you



Happy Birthday To…

Me! Yes Darlings, today is my birthday; I am so thankful and blessed to see another year.  It has been an interesting year from 50 to 51, so many lessons learned, so much enlightenment.  Many thanks to my UK family, Instagram and Facebook friends who have wished me lovely birthday blessings, I thank you all for sharing my day with me.  The best gift today, was being completely snowed in here in DC, therefore, I did not have to go anywhere, so I was nice and cozy at home.   

My birthday is actually my personal new year, so goals have been set, prayers have been said, and I’m looking forward to seeing what my 51st year brings.  Jill Scott’s Golden video was sent to me as part of a birthday greeting, it sums up the way I’m living my life perfectly!

Today Maylana’s Chronicles {formerly Maylana’s Closet} is two years old!! What a fantastic and enlightening journey it has been so far.  A big Thank You to all my followers, who have been here from the very beginning, and those of you, who have joined me along the way.  To all the blogging networks in the US and the UK, thank you for your support and guidance.  I’m so proud of my blog, I have so much more I want to accomplish, but I truly understand, that something extraordinary takes time, and cannot be rushed.  You must crawl, before you can walk.  Everything will come together at exactly the right time!  I am blessed!

Thank you for walking with me on this wonderful blogging journey, there is so much more yet to come.  Stay Tuned

Love, Creativity, Blessings & Light

Dahhlings… Finally, here are the photos of my birthday lunch at the Ritz in London.  It was one of the most beautiful experiences; which made my birthday absolutely grand and super special.  Thanks to my wonderful sister, Althea, for her elegant taste in choosing such a wonderful establishment, to celebrate this extra special milestone birthday.

You truly have not experienced fine dining until you have experienced the Ritz in London.  The table service is truly a first class and highly synchronized piece of art, orchestrated by the superb and elegantly attired wait staff.  Today’s post will be a photo blog in the true sense of the word… Enjoy!

New Year, Birthdays And Me…

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!!!




Bloom Where You’re Planted…

One of the original Fashionistas/Diva

Well here we are again Divas, it’s Monday, and another fresh start.  What are you going to do with this new week you’ve been blessed with?  How are you going to make it special?  Do something great, have something to show for it by Friday.  This is the lead up to the U.S. Memorial weekend; so it’s going to be a short week for most (myself included) Are you bikini ready?? I’ve still got 6lbs to go, but I’m good.

I had a lovely weekend.  Went to my favourite spot, Oya, to celebrate another Diva’s birthday, Ms. Donna, where we had a fabulous time with lots of sushi, cocktails and good conversation.  While there, we met Antoine Anderson, who owns a modeling agency; he walked in with about 13 male models (that in itself was a sight to see) who all looked absolutely gorgeous in Antoine’s line of bow ties and their 2 piece suits.  Antoine conducted a photo shoot and  left… That’s fabulousness for you.  Watch out for Antoine in a future post.  Happy Birthday Donna, we celebrated in style.

Bloom Where You’re Planted… Make sure you constantly blossom, do something spectacular right where you’re standing.  Today is your day to shine.  SHINE ON DIVAS! Be the Bombshells you are!

Here is a track by Nuyorican Soul I had on repeat during my commute this  morning.  Enjoy!

Have a fabulous, glorious and blessed Monday!
