You Are Not Average!!

Motivational Quote

 

Over the past week, I have been blessed by quite a few women via Instagram, Facebook and in person, that I have been an inspiration to them. That is one of the highest compliments, anyone can ever pay me. My whole reason for ever starting my blog, was to inspire other women {and gentlemen too!}, that we are powerful, shining stars, who can accomplish anything we want to, when we set our hearts and minds on whichever path we choose to go.

I decided, 3 years ago, that I wanted to bring a ray of sunshine to your day, and hopefully inspire  you to put your best foot forward; start that business you’ve been dreaming about, style inspiration, or just posting a motivational quote, that may set off a light bulb in your head.  For me, if I have inspired one person, then I have accomplished what I originally set out to do.

Take this to heart: Shine every single day, Live Boldly every single day and always, always be YOU!

Love, Light, Creativity, and Blessings!

#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.

Dreaming of Louboutins…

In Object's of Desire on June 27, 2013 at 11:13 am

 

 

Louboutins Winter 2013As I was cruising and dreaming through the Saks Fifth Avenue website, I came across these gorgeous Louboutin booties. This is one of the things you do when on hiatus, dream of beautiful things for Autumn/Winter 2013. Click on the image to be taken to the Saks website, to view more of this gorgeous item.

I forgot to mention in my last post, that even though I will not be blogging much this summer, you can still find me on Instagram and Pinterest, both under the user name @Maylana, and of course Facebook and Twitter both under the user name @maylanascloset. 

I’d love it if you clicked the “Like” button if you do stop by my Facebook page.

Have yourselves a beautiful and sun filled day!

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! 🙂

A Joyful Monday To You…

002 Gorgeous dress

Well Dahhlings. here we are, yet another Monday.  December seems to be speeding by; this coming Sunday will be the 15th, meaning we will already be half way though!!! How’s your holiday shopping going?

Wow… I’m amazed at how fast, time is speeding by.  Before you know it we will be drinking champagne {or sparkling wine} celebrating the new year.

I’m actually looking forward to 2013, lots of exciting things happening for myself and Maylana’s Closet.  I’ll be celebrating the first birthday of my blog on January 5th {look out for celebration posts}, I’ll be going home to London to celebrate an important milestone birthday {watch out for fabulous blog posts live and direct from my hometown, London}, plus my sister and I will be nurturing and growing the vision we have for our business with unlimited passion!  We’re going to the next level!!

Why did I post the dress above? I thought it was simply gorgeous.  One of my Facebook associates thought it was just my style and he was absolutely right. I love everything about this dress, and with my short hair, it’s absolutely perfect. I wish I knew who it was by, because it would make a lovely birthday dress.

Start your week with a bright light, nothing but JOY will shine on you.  Wishing you a Positive, Inspiring and Beautiful week!

And remember to…

Create powerful thoughts of happiness and your body and mind will always remain happy.

Love, Light & Passion

The Beautiful Art Of Letting Go…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on October 31, 2012 at 10:27 am

This beautiful and inspirational poem by Ernest Holmes was posted on my Facebook timeline a few days ago, and it truly moved me; it moved me to the point where I felt I had to share it with you.  This poem beautifully illustrates the art of letting go.  Sometimes you just have to “LET GO” What did you let go of today?

She Let Go

 

She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear.  She let go of the judgments.

She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.

She let go of the committee of indecision within her.

She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons.

Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go.

She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go.

She let go of all of the memories that held her back.

She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.

She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it.

She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer.

She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.

She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she should let go.

She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter.

She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.

She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.

No one was around when it happened.

There was no applause or congratulations.

No one thanked her or praised her.

No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort. There was no struggle.

It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let it all be.

A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her.

And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.

 “Everything will change when your desire to move on exceeds your desire to hold on.”  ~ Alan H. Cohen
