Noted Fashion Designer L’wren Scott…

On what is hopefully the very last snow day of 2014, I just found out that L’wren Scott was found dead of an apparent suicide.  I always wonder what is going on in someone’s life, which could cause them to decide this is the only way out.  My heart goes out. We are all interconnected with each other via social media, i.e., Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, etc., and most of us think everyone else’s life is going so perfectly, and we may even compare theirs to our own, because of the perfectly edited and fabulous photos we all put out on a daily basis. We really don’t know what is going on in someone’s life until it’s too late.  I pray I never find out what could be so bad that I feel there is no other way out.

I myself have been surrounded by death in 2014.  I have already lost two friends, so far this year, which has given me pause, to remember that today is all we have, so therefore, we must make the most of each day.

May whatever demons L’wren Scott was fighting be put to rest, and that she now rests peacefully.

Sugarplum Booties For Spring…

Jeffrey Campbell Sugarplum Bootie, Maylana's Chronicles, Maylana's Closet, #jeffreycampbell

Hi Darlings!  For those of you in the DC metro area, I hope you’re enjoying this freaky 70+ degree weather. Unfortunately, we’re about to take another big dip in temperature, within the next couple of days, so enjoy this gorgeous weather while you can.  If spring ever decides to show up, these Sugarplum booties by Jeffrey Campbell should be a definite must have.  

It appears this style of bootie is all the rage for 2014, {Sarah Jessica Parker, has an open toed version, Zara also has something similar, to name a few}.  I don’t really follow trends, but this is a classic that has been around for quite some time.

Available in a multitude of interesting colours and textures, I do have a soft spot for these beauties in pastel pink leather.  Available at Nasty Gal

Did you see that red dress at the Golden Globes! In the photo above, yellow truly becomes her, don’t you think? No matter what Lupita wears she looks gorgeous.

The beautiful and talented actress from 12 Years A Slave has truly made her mark on the film world. Let’s stay tuned to see what she does next.  I hope she takes home that well deserved Oscar.

Be Bold Friday…

I’ve been catching glimpses of the Wendy Williams show over the last few weeks, and I’ve been quite intrigued by the fabulous crystal cat eye reading glasses she’s being wearing.  After a little Google search, I found out that they are made by a company called Divalicious.

These beauties are not for the faint of heart, I absolutely love them, and the prices are amazing, starting at $58.00, where you could treat yourself to a couple of pairs and take them to your optician to have your prescription lens dropped in if you need more than readers.  There are also sparkly eyeglass cases, if you’re so inclined.  How Bold!

Today is Be Bold Friday.  Go after what you want to do; be who you want to be and move through the discomfort you feel as you stretch beyond your present conditions.  Believe me, its worth it!

Love, Creativity, Blessings & Light

Dear Edna…

June Ambrose Edna Frame

I am so in love with June Ambrose’s Edna Frames.  The super stylist to the stars has launched her sophomore collection of yet another crowd stopping, “where did you get those fabulous shades“; in collaboration with Selima Optique, the trend setting luxury eye-wear brand.  Nothing says “I’m super gorgeous”, than big statement frames.  These will definitely be going on my wish list, and staying on my radar, as it’s time to give my beloved Prada’s a rest, and start searching for a worthy replacement for summer 2014.

Available online at Selima Optique. in Black, Blond Horn (shown) and Blue Crystal.

Shoe Dazzle’s Bow Tie…

Shoe Dazzle

If you’re looking for a lovely ankle boot, and don’t want to make a serious investment, try the Alecia ankle boot, available at Shoe Dazzle.  At a mere $46.00, you can afford to buy both colours {I’m loving the fuchsia!}  This little beauty is very elegant with a 5″ heel and 1″ platform, topped off with a demur bow at the heel.  Wear this ankle boot with a pencil skirt {with a nice kick pleat in the back of course} and a lambswool  or cashmere turtle neck sweater, or pair the skirt with a fitted jacket {leather would be lovely}, then add a motif tee for a fun yet chic look.

Available at Shoe Dazzle

Donna Karen Blood Red…

In Object's of Desire on October 15, 2013 at 10:38 am

OK… So I’m browsing the internet hoping to find a dress for a major event I have to attend next month, and I come across this beauty in Donna Karen’s signature body conscious draping.  It is so out of my price range {and not really the style I was looking for at the moment}, but I had to post, because I love it!!! Price tag $1895!!! Available at Neiman Marcus, if you’re so inclined.

Zara copy anyone?

It’s A New Dawn, It’s A New Day…

Sika Dress and Me

Hi Darlings, I thought I’d post an update to let you know how I’m doing on my self reflecting hiatus {and also show off my fabulous Sika dress}.  I’m FANTASTIC!!! It’s been a challenging couple of months in my personal life, and that’s why I decided to put my blog on hiatus until the dust cleared.  I’m happy to say 90% of the dust has settled into sparkling fairy dust, and my creativity is bouncing back with a force and passion, I’ve never seen before. It’s amazing how so much light can come out of a dark place.

♥Stay Strong♥

There comes a time in all of our lives when things look really bleak, but I’m here to tell you that if you just hold on, don’t give up and try your utmost to keep those negative thoughts at bay, you will come through {read “The Secret“}.  Try your best to have some sense of normalcy, don’t throw yourself into a pit of depression, there’s nothing for you down there.  Remember there are lessons to be learned through every life experience, especially the bad, and I’ve been blessed to have learned quite a few these past months.  As far as I’m concerned it’s though God’s grace that I have come through my own predicament, a place I’ve never been before, and hope I never experience again.  The most important thing is, I’ve learned so much more about myself, I’ve learned what’s really important.  These new tools will guide me on my new path for the rest of my life’s journey.

♥Never Give Up♥

I’m choosing not to disclose what I’ve been through on my blog, because my blog is a happy place, and some things really are just personal. I also realize there are others, going through so much more than I did, so it’s important to me to try to inspire at least one person to Never Ever Give Up… Ever!

For those of you who read the bible, read Psalm 121 daily, believe me it’s very powerful; for those who know this Psalm, you know what I mean.

♥Exciting New Things♥

As I’ve mentioned before, in the coming months, there will be lots of exciting and lovely new things coming to my blog and my company; I’d love for you to stay tuned, and continue on this fabulous journey with me! In the meantime, I will continue my hiatus, with short bursts of inspiration until September.  Namaste♥
