Valentine's Day, #valentinesday, Love, #Love #maylanascloset #maylanaschronicles

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my Style Mavens, and especially to all my single ladies, who may feel a little left out and alone today.  Never ever let this day make you feel any less than you are or like you’re missing something, because you’re not.  You are Whole, Beautiful, Fabulous, Creative and Talented.

For all you single ladies, here’s your anthem “I’m Every Woman” by Chaka Khan

Love and Kisses to you all… SmoochesValentine's Day, #valentinesday, Love, #Love #maylanascloset #maylanaschronicles

Love Your Weight…

In Daily Chronicles, Daily Musings on February 13, 2014 at 2:07 pm

Hello Darlings! So good old Valentine’s Day is upon us again, and even though it may be too late to order a gift for yourself or significant other to arrive tomorrow, you can still purchase these lovely paper weights from Mark and Graham.  I love this store, you can buy the most lovely paper, monogrammed stationery, and desk accessories, as well as some really beautiful leather items. I love anything paper or any item that’s going to make my home office look elegant.  I think these fit the bill.

And ladies, if you’re single on Valentine’s Day, treat yourselves to one of these, and place it in prime position on your desk, as a reminder to always LOVE YOU FIRST♥ 

Paper Weight, Love, Love You, Valentines Day #valentine, #valentines #love #loveyou

Here is one of my favourite poems from Nikki Giovanni’s book “Love Poems” which I’ve owned for years, and always love reading from time to time.  Have a fabulously blessed Valentine’s Day Darlings… Mwah

Love Is

Some people forget that love is 
tucking you in and kissing you 
“Good night” 
no matter how young or old you are

Some people don’t remember that 
love is 
listening and laughing and asking 
questions 
no matter what your age

Few recognize that love is 
commitment, responsibility 
no fun at all 
unless

Love is 
You and me 

Wear Red Day

Happy Birthday To…

Me! Yes Darlings, today is my birthday; I am so thankful and blessed to see another year.  It has been an interesting year from 50 to 51, so many lessons learned, so much enlightenment.  Many thanks to my UK family, Instagram and Facebook friends who have wished me lovely birthday blessings, I thank you all for sharing my day with me.  The best gift today, was being completely snowed in here in DC, therefore, I did not have to go anywhere, so I was nice and cozy at home.   

My birthday is actually my personal new year, so goals have been set, prayers have been said, and I’m looking forward to seeing what my 51st year brings.  Jill Scott’s Golden video was sent to me as part of a birthday greeting, it sums up the way I’m living my life perfectly!

My Declaration

It’s Finally Here… Happy New Year!

In Daily Chronicles, Daily Musings on January 1, 2014 at 10:57 am

2014 came in quietly, she gently sat down beside me and asked, “so what do we do now?” my response, with the grace of God go I.  This year, I won’t be making the usual resolutions, the only thing I ask is for Grace, and nothing short of Amazing, which I know I’ll be blessed with.  As I gave thanks to the most high for seeing me through the difficult challenges of 2013, and I reflected back on my year, I hope I have learned even more valuable lessons about this journey called life.  I feel that I have grown to become a much more enlightened and enriched woman than the one who celebrated her 50th birthday last January, because I’m most definitely not the same as before.  Now it’s time to move forward and accomplish the personal goals I have set for myself.

Once again I want to thank my fantastic and beautiful loyal followers who are here with me on my blogging journey, even though I’ve been unable to post as often as I’d like, due to my hectic schedule, which I’m hoping to rectify soon.  I’m wishing you all, the most fabulous year you’ve ever witnessed, may your dreams be fulfilled, and you keep moving forward in your high heels and flats on your own incredible journey.

I want to wish you the most Blessed, Prosperous, Creative and Amazingly wonderful 2014.  Namaste!

Just Be Happy…

It’s been a hectic and extremely demanding last couple of weeks {my blog post about the Pink concert two weeks ago is still in draft!}.  I hope you had a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving day, and since you’re probably completely stuffed from all that food, you’re now detoxing until Christmas, where we’ll do it all over again!

I was talking to a girl friend of mine, and she introduced me to the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, which is from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. My friend has been listening to this song to start and end her day and swears it keeps her in a good mood.  I have to say when I first heard it, I repeated it about 4 or 5 times, there is just something so catchy and “happy” about it, it makes you want to dance around the house like I did when I heard it.  Plus it doesn’t hurt, that I think Pharrell’s quite handsome to boot!

So if you’re feeling a little low, here’s Pharrell’s Happy to perk you up!

An Inspirational Moment…

In Daily Musings on November 19, 2013 at 10:17 am

Good morning Darlings! I’ve posted this quote before, but I found it fitting to re-post today.

successful

Never allow anyone, to try to remove your crown and throw you off your throne.  YOU ARE QUEEN

I’m sharing this link to an inspirational quote, posted by Joyce Meyer this morning, which was shared by a good friend today.  It was the second timely quote my friend shared with me just this morning; both quotes were so on point, they inspired me to write this post.  It’s amazing how timely certain messages come into your life.  Thank you Ms. J.

Maylana’s message: Be inspired by the bricks that may be thrown at you, continue building your firm foundation, and remember….  Stand your ground and have absolute Faith!

Have an Amazing, Fabulous and Truly Blessed Day!

Well it’s a little late in the day, this post should have gone out first thing, but there were so many distractions.  This truly has been a glorious Monday. The clocks went back yesterday at 2:00 a.m., and because my body has not yet adjusted, I was able to wake up at my usual time, which would have been 6:00 a.m. {now 5:00 a.m.} and get an hour and a half of chores/projects completed {except posting this article}, before my true day began.

As much as I dislike driving in the dark at this time of year, I do like the fact that we gained the extra hour, {we’ll be used to it in a few weeks, so it won’t matter}.  Sunday was a nice comfortable day of church, lovely people, and great conversation. The day just did not seem to be speeding by as usual, which was nice for a change.

This year appears to be rushing to draw to a close.  2013 has been remarkable and challenging in its own right to say the least.  Have you accomplished your goals for this year, or were there a few obstacles?  Even if you haven’t accomplished everything you set out to do for this year; do what you can, even it’s just one small thing; it will give you a sense of accomplishment, and maybe create the blueprint for what you’d like to do for the coming new year.

Yesterday, my pastor talked about getting off the couch, and out of our comfort zones. We do the same things over and over and expect different results (duh!) I know there are still areas in my own life, where I really have to get off my comfortable red couch, and start to do some things very differently. I’m in the process of creating my blueprint for my journey through 2014, I hope you’re thinking of creating yours too.

And remember constantly ask yourself…

If Not Now

  There’s no time like the present!

Wishing you a fabulously chic week; Blissful Blessings to you

Hi Darlings! This was originally written as yesterday’s post, but we had to celebrate Ms. Celia Cruz’s birthday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend, I know I did.  I got so much done, I feel the weekend went by a little too quickly!  Give thanks for this glorious new week, because it signifies new beginnings; which brings you one step closer to fulfilling all of your dreams, and accomplishing your goals.

On a different note, did anyone see the TLC movie last night? I didn’t as I did not get in until very late.  I have heard, through friends, and social media, that it was a pretty good docudrama {though there were also the usual criticisms}, which stayed true to the essence of TLC’s biography.  I’ll have to try to catch it on Video on Demand.  What are your thoughts on the movie?

Enjoy your week, stay fabulous, stay chic, and remember…
