Mother Nature’s Fashion Show…

In Daily Musings on November 10, 2013 at 6:39 pm

The spectacular show, Mother Nature displayed today, was nothing short of stunning! She wore all of her colours, and showed them off in a vivid display of reds and golds for us mere humans to enjoy.   The sun was shining, the sky was blue, with the wind whipping around our necks; it was just a gorgeous day, where, even if you had nowhere to go, you had to go out, and just go for a walk and enjoy Mother nature’s awesome splendor.

The rose in particular stood out for me.  Every other rose around it was shriveled to a crisp, but this rose was holding on for dear life, standing tall and proud in her redness as if to say, “look at me I’m still here!!”.

Click on the images to really see the colours of the day.

Wishing you a Beautiful and Blessed Week

A Week To Be A Gorgeous Succulent…

Hello Darlings!  It has been one doozy of a week, to say the very least!  I captured the above photo with my iPad, because to me it signifies strength.  It’s actually part of a dazzling floral arrangement, but for some reason, this Succulent seemed to stand out more than the beautiful flowers surrounding it.  As you know the Succulent is a very hearty shrub, which usually retains water in arid climates or conditions.  Succulents can withstand the most extreme circumstances, and will still look beautiful, long after the other flowers surrounding it have withered and died.

This was a week to truly becoming a beautiful and robust succulent; meaning, no matter what comes your way, you stand strong and look gorgeous doing it.

Have yourselves a very fabulous and chic weekend!

And remember Darlings…

Do You Bazaart?

I must confess, I have an addiction; an addiction to iTunes apps!  I have approximately 70+ apps on my iPhone and God knows how many I’ve accumulated on my iPad {and yes I use them all!!}  My lastest acquisition is Bazaart.  This amazing app works with Pinterest, and allows you to take your images from your various boards, and turn them into beautiful collages.  You can snip, move, rotate and more to your creative heart’s desire.

Above is my first foray into creating a collage with this app; I think I’m going to have it blown up, and framed {Ikea does some wonderful  frames}. Look out for more of my “works of art

Let me know what you think, if you download the app, maybe I’ll create a Bazaart gallery to display our collective creativity.

Go to the iTunes store, where Bazaart is available as a free download. Click here.

Happy Friday darlings! We finally made it and the weekend is here.   I’m happy to report that so far we’ve had 2 gorgeous days of sun and blue skies.  I hope you have something wonderful in store for your weekend.  Get lots done!!

Above is a photograph, I took yesterday of some beautiful flowers blooming in my neighbourhood.  They just appeared from nowhere.  I think they got some major encouragement from the lovely weather, and wanted to show off their pink glory.  I would love for you to right-click on the photo, and save it, whereby, you can turn it into wall paper for your iPad or computer {it looks stunning on my iPad}.  Just a little Friday treat from me to you.

Have yourselves the most Ultra Chic and Wonderful weekend, see you soon!

T.G.I.F. To All Weekend Warriors!

In Daily Musings on March 22, 2013 at 2:39 pm

Joyus bracelets - compressed

Hi Stylish People!  Here we are on another chilly Friday.  Can you belive it was 32 degrees this morning? and it’s not going to be that much higher over the weekend.  I’m pretty sure the groundhog is in his burrow laughing really hard at us.

While going through my daily emails, I came across this lovely gold plated and leather bracelet on Joyus.com {search for The Perfect Bracelet}.  If you’re looking for unusual accessories, Joyus is one of the sites to visit {you have to sign up to be able to shop}.  At only $38 dollars for a set of 3, these would like really nice in multi stacks; and with free shipping on $50 or more it’s worth it.  I know they’ll be on my list of accessories for the upcoming spring/summer season.

CableKeeps by nice

 

Another little treasure which arrived in my inbox were Cable Keeps by Nice, which are being sold on the Fab.com website, this is another site you need to be a member to shop, but it takes all of 5 minutes to sign up.  If you’re like me and the mess of white cable cords, which power all of our various i-devices does not sit well with you, well, here is a colourful and tidy solution.  They’re only $12 for the next 6 days, not bad for neatness.

The most important things for me to do this weekend, is to get a haircut, upload some new items to my Etsy store, and create a couple of my Penelope Rosette hats for Easter.  What’s on your weekend list?

Whatever you do, have a Restful, Peaceful and Amazing weekend.

Me again

Maylana’s Theme…

Happy Wednesday Dahhlings. I have quite a few new followers and I want to Thank You all so much, for taking the time out to read my posts, and for your follows.  Above is a collage which gives you a small snapshot into who I am and what I do.  My day usually starts off at 6:00 a.m. with a 30-45 minute walk/run, a healthy breakfast (most days); then it’s hours of online research, finding tidbits of inspiration for my blog posts, as well as being out and about networking, and absorbing the outside world, which is one massive blog post in itself!

I also have an online store of the same name www.etsy.com/shop/maylanascloset, which consists of vintage, handmade, and All Things Beautiful™ (more items coming soon).  There’s also my original boutique www.maylana.com which is now for promotional purposes.  My company originally started with crochet accessories and now includes iPad covers (Look out for this Fall’s crochet collection).  From there, I started my blog, then I opened my online vintage store; so far it’s been an incredible ride.  I’ve met some wonderful and supportive like-minded people along the way.

Why is there a pink typewriter you ask? I have a passion for old-fashioned typewriters.  Not long ago, I was able to pick up a Remington Noiseless for $7 at a garage sale (which you can see above) and I’m now on the hunt for a pink Royale (which I’m finding out are pretty expensive on eBay!).

You’ll rarely see me without my Prada Baroque sunglasses, I love those things; they are a true statement accessory, they are ME!  Oh, and I love Peonies and Sunflowers; and of course, I always deserve new shoes!!

It was difficult to choose which collage to include, so I included them both; they’re pretty much the same with some variations.  So there you have it, a teeny tiny glimpse into the world of Maylana’s Closet.

Again, Thank You so much for following.  Have yourselves a fantastic Wednesday!  Smooches!

Book Ends…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on July 17, 2012 at 11:53 am

Explores the fateful decision of Emma Jean Peace to raise her seventh son, Perfect, as the daughter she has always wanted.

Here are a few books I plan to read by the end of the year.  Even though I already have a couple hundred unread books sitting on my living room floor,  I still plan to buy and read these… why?  because they intrigue me and I just love books.  I will always love books with paper pages; as much as I love technology, I have not embraced the NookKindle, iPad method of reading books. Maybe I’m a hoarder of books and haven’t admitted it to myself yet 🙂 Is there a 12 step program?

There is nothing like laying in the bath tub, soaking in lavender scented sea salts, and reading a mesmerizing book.  Somehow an E-book  just doesn’t give me the same sensation.  Maybe one day I’ll embrace the E-book for convenience sake {I really doubt it though}, nevertheless, I’ll never get rid of my hardcover/paperback books. There’s nothing like turning a page!

A couple of these books have been around for a while, languishing on my Amazon wish list, I think it’s time I gave them a home.

Roots of Style is a rare look into the mind, life, and journey of one of our generation’s most coveted fashion designers, Isabel Toledo. ~ Currently Reading

Set in Louisiana in 1828, Martin’s latest novel depicts the psychologically charged relationship between a wealthy white woman and the slave she detests.

This book comprises a portfolio of portraits of over one hundred incredible gowns from the entire era of Christian Dior haute couture.

In The Forty Rules of Love, Elif Shafak has woven a wonderful tale of love and spiritual longing, brilliantly exploring the universal desire for intimacy with another human being, as well as with the divine.

All books are available at www.amazon.com as well as other bookstores. I hope you select one of them; if you do, let me know your thoughts.

Happy Tuesday!
