Saturday Musings…

In Weekend Chronicles on January 4, 2014 at 3:42 pm

Hello Darlings!  I hope you’re enjoying this rather wintry Saturday, which has finally gotten up to 29 sunny degrees!  looking out the window, there’s a beautiful blue sky and lots of sun; if it wasn’t for the snow, you wouldn’t believe it was so cold.  This morning when I was out and about it was very nippy 15 degrees… but I had the mink on, so I was fabulously warm!

The photos below are from Friday morning and Thursday night, which is when the snow started. It was no longer lovely, when it took me 40 minutes to get the snow off my vehicle!!  I must say at the moment, it feels good to be nice and toasty in my apartment, where I’m now taking down my Christmas decorations, while drinking a glass of Coquito, which is made for me, every holiday by one of my Latina divas in New York.

Daytime, #daytime, #snow, #snowy, #snowday, Snow day,

Nighttime, #snow, #snowy #night, Night

Have yourselves a fabulous Saturday.

Love & Light to you!

Maylana's Closet

Hello Darlings! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend as I did.  You’ll be happy to know that the Maylana’s Closet Blog Shop is finally open! Right now the bangles shown above from my “Touch of India Collection”  are available for purchase; there are also a pair of exquisite earrings {seen in 3rd pic below, 5 sets available) also for purchase.  There will be more eclectic and beautiful items coming to the Blog Shop very soon.  Click on the link above, and let me know what you think.  Please bear in mind, it’s still a work in progress.

Pedicure

Part of my weekend was spent pampering myself, so I decided to give myself a pedicure. Color used was Estee Lauder Béte Noire ,{dark purple} with Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top coat. {Sandals are by Zara, circa 2009} Ladies, pampering yourselves on a regular basis, is conducive to your well-being, it’s a must!

I plan to invest in a tripod very soon, so that I can start taking full length self portraits with my Canon T3i; I realize fully now, that as a blogger, a tripod is your best friend!  In the meantime my trusty iPhone is going to have to do.  Here’s a peek of what I’m wearing today.

New York Tee Shirt

On Saturday I decided to represent my 1st adopted home, New York!!! It was where I lived, my first 15 years in the U.S.  I truly miss living there, there is nothing else like NYC! {click on the link, to hear my favourite New York song}.  So with a pair of scissors, I slashed the neck of this tee-shirt, and I was on my way; having my own personal New York minute.  I hope to take a trip there soon, great blogging material there.

I did not get a chance to participate in the Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday {I found 1000 other things I needed to do}, but I’m still hoping to bring you some gorgeous photos at a later date.

To round things out, I found this quote on Pinterest and simply love it…

Have yourselves the most fabulous Monday; make sure that YOU make it Amazing!

Cherry Blossoms And All…

Cherry Blossoms

Happy Monday! I had another fantastic weekend, the weather was absolutely gorgeous!!! 60 degrees on Saturday and a whopping 67 yesterday.  Apparently we’re heading for 70 degrees today, lets enjoy it while we can.  While I was out, I made a spontaneous decision to drive down to the Tidal Basin in downtown DC… Wow!  The traffic was at a major standstill, so all I could get was this drive by photo of a few cherry trees.  Side note: Metro really is the only way to visit the Cherry Blossoms!

Most of the trees were not in full bloom, but the crowd was definitely there.  I’m  hoping to return next weekend with my Canon T3i, when they should be fully bloomed in all their pink and white glory.

Stay tuned for my upcoming blog post {maybe later today or tomorrow} on my trip to Baltimore, where I met the most wonderful and eccentric vintage store owner.  You’ll see why she truly deserves her own post!

I hope you’re having a Fabulous and Amazing Monday!

And remember…

A Truly Busy Day…

Beautiful Hat IIDo you sometimes wish you could clone yourself? Between filling orders, doing taxes, taking photos, uploading photos {and then of course my camera battery died and I didn’t charge the back up!) plus trying to write a draft on my trip to London for this blog, there is just not enough time in the day!

The image above is one of the many photos I’ve taken today, for the Maylana’s Closet Boutique. Being an entrepreneur is extremely rewarding, but there are times when we just need to grow an extra pair of hands.

Excuse me while I try to clone myself! 🙂

Ms. Canon~Belle Has Arrived…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on August 24, 2012 at 10:33 am

I waited for 48 hours and she finally arrived! Yes my Canon EOS Rebel T3i camera arrived yesterday, and I am beyond Ecstatic.  And yes, I’ve decided my camera is a girl!

I’ve been wanting a grown up camera for a while now; there was only so much my trusty iPhone 4 camera could do {even with the fantastic editing apps, which I’ll continue to use}.  I also had a Olympus digital camera, my sister gifted to me years ago, which also did the trick; but it really was time to start playing with the big girls and boys (or at least in the sandbox with the other newbies).

After reviewing this baby to death, comparison shopping, and reading everything I possibly could about this camera, I finally made the leap on Tuesday; and now it’s here. 🙂

Now if I only knew how to use it!

Have a fantastic weekend Dahhlings, you know what I’ll be doing.

Object’s of Desire…

In Daily Musings on June 13, 2012 at 10:23 am

Starting Friday, June 29, I will be debuting a new monthly feature titled ” Maylana’s Closet Objects of Desire” whether it’s a pink pony, a vacation in the Maldives or a red convertible Bentley, it will be my dream list of over the top items if money were no object. (some affordable things will make it too!) Hey I’m allowed to dream aren’t I?  And so should you!  Maylana’s Closet Objects of Desire will be posted on the last Friday of each month.

Look out for the fabulous, the opulent,over the top and sometimes affordable bits and pieces.  What’s on your wish list? We’re going to have fun with this!

Even though it’s not yet the 29th,  I couldn’t wait to show you my first object of desire… Why? Because I need one of these like yesterday!

 I want a Canon EOS Rebel T3i or T2i camera, because every blogger and/or boutique owner worth her salt, who constantly takes photos needs one; an iPhone camera will only take you so far!  Lowest Price found via Nextag ~$618 ~$749 at Wal-Mart (hopefully there’ll be a sale July 4th).  This camera is one of the best in its class and at a great price.  It’s easy to use (point and shoot), fantastic professional photos and lots of cool features such as: 18 MP, creative filters, wide 3″ clear view LCD monitor, HD movie mode, and many other brilliant features too numerous to mention here. Plus, I think I’ll look quite cool with one of these at the numerous events I’m being invited to this summer. 🙂

 You can take a look at specs here: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Canon-18MP-5169B003AA/15754553?ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=15754553&sourceid=1500000000000003142050&veh=cse

Have yourselves an amazing Wednesday!
