Maylana's Closet

Hello Dahhlings!  The photo above {captured by me on my trusty iPhone},  is what I woke up to this morning.  This being the 5th day of spring, the joke is still on us.  Though pretty and looking much like a Norman Rockwell painting, this is not what we would normally expect for the last week in March.

I hope you had yourselves a fabulous weekend, and you’re ready and rearing to go for the upcoming week.

Just remember; blue skies are somewhere on the horizon.

Love ~ Light ~ Passion

New Year, Birthdays And Me…

BIRTHDAY

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!!!

Cheers

Monday Morning Musings…

In Daily Musings on August 20, 2012 at 9:18 am

Well beautiful people, it’s Monday again, I hope you had a wonderful and productive weekend.  Mine was pretty low-key; getting over a slight cold, and pretty much getting myself in order.

It’s a new week and time to make some things happen. I’m putting my best 4″ wedged heels forward. What are you going to make happen this week? Remember, there is no time like the present.

Whatever you’ve been putting off, try to put it in motion, TODAY!

Aim High!!

Have yourselves an amazing and fabulous Monday!

Hello Dahhlings… After battling a slight cold, I’m back.  Today I’m relaxing with my must read material, August’s Harper’s Bazaar (yes I’m very behind on this one) and  Vogue’s 916 page September issue {it’ weighs a ton}.   To help me through this strenuous task, I’m sipping on a watermelon mojito.

I discovered this delicious recipe last week via fellow blogger at Keep Calm and Eat On {read post here}.  My mojito has a lot more mint in it, because that’s my taste.  Visit Keep Calm’s blog to see the gorgeous photos she posted and to get the mojito receipe {read her blog while you’re there}, you’ll be glad you did.

I’m now anxiously awaiting the arrival of my Harper’s Bazaar and Elle magazine’s huge September issues, which should be forced into my mailbox soon.

BTW ~ I’m loving that Dolce & Gabbana dress (2nd row, left).

Today’s Man…

In Daily Musings on July 18, 2012 at 1:07 pm

I’ve been meaning to create a post consisting of stylish men, who’ve embraced their own unique style.   Here are a few looks I admire…

Don’t you just love the simple casual elegance of this look?

The costume designer for the USA series “Suits” certainly knows how to dress Gabriel Macht, Every week he is a true vision to behold in his bespoke suits.

Yasiin Dante Smith Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) has truly evolved from conscious rapper, to actor to man of unique style.

Evening Suited & Booted ~ My UK followers will understand this term 🙂

Mr. Marc Jacobs, a true visionary! No matter what he touches, it’s always magic!

Three very stylish and chic gentlemen

Mr. Jon Hamm himself!

Impeccable mature style!

I will definitely create another “Today’s Man” article; there are so many gorgeous images out there, I couldn’t fit them all into one post.  There are some gorgeously dressed gentlemen out there.

Have an amazing Wednesday Dahhlings!
