Have You Had The”Girls” Checked This Year??

In Daily Chronicles, Daily Musings on October 20, 2014 at 4:45 pm

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

Today I went to have my “Girls” checked out.  A yearly duty, though not pleasant (the smushing!!), is a life saving necessity! Please ladies if you have not done so yet, make that appointment to have your mammogram today.

I’ve lost two friends this year to this dreadful disease; one of them was lost due to being so consumed with her career, she had not gone for a check up in over 15 years, it took for her to suddenly fall ill, to find out she was at stage 4 and the disease had spread. Please, NEVER EVER let your job get in the way of your health.

RIP  ~ Nikkia & Susanne

Love, Light & Blessings

Hi Darlings! Here’s another one from the archives.  I thought it was appropriate to post this particular article as it was written on a Thursday back in May.  Who doesn’t love a good healthy smoothie?

Original Post

Happy Thursday Darlings  As you may know, I’m on a major health kick, so I thought I’d let you know what’s in today’s smoothie cocktail.  Here goes…
  • 1 Handful Kale
  • 1 Handful Spinach
  • 1/2 Apple
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 1 Tablespoon Flaxseed
  • 1 Handful Strawberries
  • 1/2 cup spring water

Blend, pour into a martini glass, and sip daintily, like the healthy, and chic Sylista you are.

Maylana’s Monday Musings…

keep-calm-and-love-monday edit

Hi Darlings! I hope you had a fabulous weekend, enjoying the lovely weather.  Unfortunately I had dental surgery on Saturday, which actually wasn’t as bad as expected. I am a little swollen, and have some pain, but overall I feel quite good.  My dentist gave me some great pain meds to boot, so it wasn’t all bad 🙂

Here’s me after surgery, by the time I got home, my right cheek looked a lot like Alvin’s {the chipmunk, for those who didn’t get that one}

Maylana

I did get a lot accomplished, while recuperating; I had a mini photo shoot to distract myself from the discomfort, of a few beautiful and unique items, which will  be added to my Etsy boutique later today.  There will be an accompanying blog post about said items.

Two of the items will be the fabulous Sika dresses, which I have previously written about; there has been a lot of interest on my blog regarding these beautiful dresses, and I finally have two originals available for sale.  So for those of you who have been emailing me about them, they have finally arrived.  Read original blog post here.

I’d love to wish you a Fabulous Monday, and a very Productive and Amazing week

And remember…

You are loved

A Very Chic Friday, With Water…

In Daily Musings on April 19, 2013 at 3:22 pm

Jimmy Choo Shoes

It’s been a busy day, so today’s post is going to be short and sweet.  Aren’t the Jimmy Choo shoes above just simply gorgeous!! Spring has truly sprung with these beauties.  Also the photography is whimsical and beautiful; I imagine an updated and rather stylish Alice falling down the rabbit hole in “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland“.

I’m also in love with the silver Tom Ford Sandals below, they’ll  be added to the “Maylana’s Dream List“, which I haven’t created in quite some time.  Look out for new dream list items soon.

Tom Ford

I’m on a major health kick right now, and I wanted to share this refreshing detox beverage, which I like to drink often.  It’s very simple, lemons, cucumbers and mint! Click on the image to be taken to the lovely “The Denver Housewife” blog; who has more recipe details, and who posted this beautiful bottle on Pinterest.

Detox Water

I want to wish you a Fabulous Friday and a Fantastic and Inspired weekend.

Sweet Greens…

Green Smoothie

After posting these photos on Instagram, I was asked to post the recipe to my blog.  I’m on day 3 of a 10 day juicing and all veggie diet {I don’t really like the word diet, but you know what I mean}, and I must say, so far so good. 🙂 I’m drinking approximately 10 ounces every 2 to 3 hours with water in between, this way there’s no time to feel hungry.

Ingredients:

  • Apple
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Spinach
  • Flaxseed
  • Almond Milk

Juice now

This one is basically the same, but instead the ingredients are:

  • Mango
  • Kiwi
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Flaxseed
  • Almond milk

A friend of mine {who is on this smoothie journey with me} created a delicious concoction in her Vitamix this morning {I never realized how expensive these were, but definitely worth it}.  It was a very dark green, but truly delicious! Sorry I don’t have a photo.

Ingredients were:

  • Spirulina
  • Pea Protein
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Chai Seeds
  • Almond Milk

There are so many variations on these green and fruit smoothies.  I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments section, so that I can switch things up a bit.

 Wishing you a very Healthy, Happy and Amazing Wednesday!

Show Your Support No Matter What The Cause…

Bravelet Bracelet - Pink
I found these elegant little bracelets while going through my Facebook Timeline last week, and thought they were a wonderful idea. Each bracelet is $35 with $10 from each purchase, donated towards your most cherished cause.  I have a friend who is going through breast cancer as we speak; and I thought this would be a lovely way to show my support.

Bravelets have quite a list of extensive colours to choose from, representing most of the various health charities.  Get yours, and show your support for your family member/friend who is going through a really tough time.

There are styles suitable for both men and women. Visit Bravelets here, to  read about how the company got started, it’s a very touching story, and while you’re there, pick up a little something.

A Bentley Passion…

In Daily Musings, Maylana's Dream List on June 29, 2012 at 11:40 am

As promised, today is my first Objects of Desire posting.  Objects of Desire is anything I would love to have if money were no object.  Objects of Desire will be featured on the last Friday of every month.  Objects could be anything my little heart desires.  It’s my ultimate wish list.  To start things off, my first feature is this 2012 passion pink Bentley Continental GT Coupe, whose sale proceeds, will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

This beauty would be my way to ride around South Beach/Biscayne Bay, Miami (one of my all time favourite places) in true Maylana style, while supporting a very worthy cause at the same time.

 Stay tuned to see what I come up with for next’s months Object’s of Desire

The temperatures for the next 8 days will be a soaring 100 degrees in Washington, DC!!  Stay Cool, Stay Chic, Stay Hydrated!!

Have a fantastic weekend Dahhlings!!
