Monday Musings…

In Daily Chronicles, Daily Musings on November 3, 2014 at 2:36 pm

November is here and she arrived with a bang! It was freezing on Saturday and the clocks went back on Sunday, which have thankfully given us an extra hour (which has it’s pluses and minuses).  As I’ve said before this year has sped by much too fast!

Bahamas Cable Beach 2As promised here is a link to a collection of photo’s of my mini vacation in the Bahamas, which I created using Flipagram and posted to Steller and Instagram (@maylana). I realized I took over 200 photographs with my iPhone, but have condensed them down to this short video. Click on the coconut to the left.

Maylana's Closet

Hello Darlings! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend as I did.  You’ll be happy to know that the Maylana’s Closet Blog Shop is finally open! Right now the bangles shown above from my “Touch of India Collection”  are available for purchase; there are also a pair of exquisite earrings {seen in 3rd pic below, 5 sets available) also for purchase.  There will be more eclectic and beautiful items coming to the Blog Shop very soon.  Click on the link above, and let me know what you think.  Please bear in mind, it’s still a work in progress.

Pedicure

Part of my weekend was spent pampering myself, so I decided to give myself a pedicure. Color used was Estee Lauder Béte Noire ,{dark purple} with Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top coat. {Sandals are by Zara, circa 2009} Ladies, pampering yourselves on a regular basis, is conducive to your well-being, it’s a must!

I plan to invest in a tripod very soon, so that I can start taking full length self portraits with my Canon T3i; I realize fully now, that as a blogger, a tripod is your best friend!  In the meantime my trusty iPhone is going to have to do.  Here’s a peek of what I’m wearing today.

New York Tee Shirt

On Saturday I decided to represent my 1st adopted home, New York!!! It was where I lived, my first 15 years in the U.S.  I truly miss living there, there is nothing else like NYC! {click on the link, to hear my favourite New York song}.  So with a pair of scissors, I slashed the neck of this tee-shirt, and I was on my way; having my own personal New York minute.  I hope to take a trip there soon, great blogging material there.

I did not get a chance to participate in the Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday {I found 1000 other things I needed to do}, but I’m still hoping to bring you some gorgeous photos at a later date.

To round things out, I found this quote on Pinterest and simply love it…

Have yourselves the most fabulous Monday; make sure that YOU make it Amazing!

Maylana's Closet

Hello Dahhlings!  The photo above {captured by me on my trusty iPhone},  is what I woke up to this morning.  This being the 5th day of spring, the joke is still on us.  Though pretty and looking much like a Norman Rockwell painting, this is not what we would normally expect for the last week in March.

I hope you had yourselves a fabulous weekend, and you’re ready and rearing to go for the upcoming week.

Just remember; blue skies are somewhere on the horizon.

Love ~ Light ~ Passion

T.G.I.F. To All Weekend Warriors!

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

Well guess who woke up late because their iPhone alarm app did not sync with day light savings time? Why do we still do this?  Other than that, I had a fantastic weekend, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, blue skies and lots of sun, and of course today, it’s cloudy and overcast.   No matter what, we’ re still going to have a great day!

I want to wish you an Amazing, Positive and Productive Monday, and remember…

Object’s of Desire…

In Daily Musings on June 13, 2012 at 10:23 am

Starting Friday, June 29, I will be debuting a new monthly feature titled ” Maylana’s Closet Objects of Desire” whether it’s a pink pony, a vacation in the Maldives or a red convertible Bentley, it will be my dream list of over the top items if money were no object. (some affordable things will make it too!) Hey I’m allowed to dream aren’t I?  And so should you!  Maylana’s Closet Objects of Desire will be posted on the last Friday of each month.

Look out for the fabulous, the opulent,over the top and sometimes affordable bits and pieces.  What’s on your wish list? We’re going to have fun with this!

Even though it’s not yet the 29th,  I couldn’t wait to show you my first object of desire… Why? Because I need one of these like yesterday!

 I want a Canon EOS Rebel T3i or T2i camera, because every blogger and/or boutique owner worth her salt, who constantly takes photos needs one; an iPhone camera will only take you so far!  Lowest Price found via Nextag ~$618 ~$749 at Wal-Mart (hopefully there’ll be a sale July 4th).  This camera is one of the best in its class and at a great price.  It’s easy to use (point and shoot), fantastic professional photos and lots of cool features such as: 18 MP, creative filters, wide 3″ clear view LCD monitor, HD movie mode, and many other brilliant features too numerous to mention here. Plus, I think I’ll look quite cool with one of these at the numerous events I’m being invited to this summer. 🙂

 You can take a look at specs here: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Canon-18MP-5169B003AA/15754553?ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=15754553&sourceid=1500000000000003142050&veh=cse

Have yourselves an amazing Wednesday!
