A Relaxing Sunday…

In Weekend Chronicles on November 1, 2015 at 2:30 pm

Blog Post - November 1

Hopefully you’ve remembered to “fall backwards” in other words, set your clocks and multiple devices back one hour and gotten that much-needed extra hour in bed.  I’m taking it really easy today, as I’ve set myself some important goals for the coming week.  What goals have you set for yourself this week? Above is a snapshot of how I plan to spend my day. Hopefully this post will inspire you to take a page out of my book and make this day a truly relaxing one, so that you can be totally refreshed for the week ahead.

And remember…

The Return!!!

Wow!!

I can’t believe it’s been 3 months since my last blog post!  My life has been an absolute whirlwind, beautiful new home, new contract, new hair (if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know what I’m talking about! scroll down the page to my IG feed), growing spiritually and tuning into my faith more than I ever have in my life!  God has been good to me! The last 3 months have been trying, joyful, painful, disappointing, frustrating, enlightening, every adjective you can think of; but you know what?  The beautiful thing is, I’m still here, stronger, more joyful and happier than I’ve truly been in the last couple of years.

I’m ready to return to blogging, because my mind, body and spirit are in a wonderful place and I’m finally ready to really grow my brand and take it into the stratosphere. the grand heights, which I envisioned 5 years ago when I started Maylana’s Closet, Maylana’s Chronicles and now Style1963, more on that last one in the coming months. To be honest, my dreams are even bigger, than they were before!

If you’re wondering what the image above represents, it’s the number of my new home. 212 means a lot to me, because when I first moved to NY from London, 212 was my area code, so it seems fitting that I’ve come full circle and am now living at 212 in Washington, DC!

I’ve missed you all, I’ve missed blogging, sitting at my computer composing my blog posts, communicating with my fellow bloggers, and all the extra stuff which goes with being a blogger and building a brand.  I’m so happy to say… I’M BACK!!! And what better way, than to make a fabulous return at the beginning of a brand new month.

I’ll see you all very soon!

Love, Life and Creativity

Hiatus

 

Hello darlings!

Today I made the difficult decision to place my blog on hiatus.  My blog is really important to me, but in my opinion, if I can’t dedicate 100% then don’t do it at all.  I have so much going on right now, huge life changes, which just don’t allow me the brain space to  create blog posts, go out and about and take photos or research what I’m writing about, then edit and do all the other wonderful things that we bloggers do to make our blogs exciting and worth reading. Putting my blog on hiatus, allows me to step back, take a deep breath and allow the universe to do what it does best.

2015 has already shaped up to be an interesting year for me, and with so much going on, it’s become overwhelming.  I’m not sure how long I’ll be away, but I’m hoping to return mid August, early September.

From time to time, I may post a quick blog post here and there, but the best way to keep up with me is to follow me @maylana on Instagram, @maylana on Pinterest or @maylanascloset on Twitter.  I promise you, I will eventually write about my travels to Dubai, which was so amazing and I feel truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to visit such an exotic and at the same time a thoroughly modern country.  I’m looking forward to sharing the wonderful photos and my lovely experience there.  I’m so glad I traveled to Dubai at the beginning of the year, because it may not have happened at all.

Be Creative, Be Peaceful, Be You

See you soon!

Three Years Old Today…

Number 3

Maylana’s Chronicles is THREE!! Oh my goodness! Where did the time go?  It has been an amazing journey. So much has happened in my life, in the 3 years since I decided to become a blogger; some things amazing, some things not so much.  What’s important is, it’s been a fantastic and enlightening journey, I’ve learned so much, and I’m looking forward to showing you what’s to come in 2015.

I want to thank my true followers, who have stuck with me, through little to no blog posts, to blog posts every single day.  Thank you for being here!

I love every single one of you

Kisses

Sparkle Friday…

Sparkle Friday Compressed

Hello Darlings, today is Sparkle Friday.  This has been the most challenging week to date, and these shoes, which I found in the back of my closet, just this morning, did the trick.  Don’t you just love shopping in your own closet?  I have no idea why these shoes got relegated to the back of the closet, but here they are to cheer me up on this beautiful (yet overcast) last day of the week.

Wishing you the most fabulous and chic weekend, and to all the Beautiful, Caring and Hardworking Fabulous Mothers, who shower unconditional love to their families every day, have a beautifully blessed U.S. Mother’s Day

And remember…

Daily Candy Goodbye

Oh my gosh Darlings! It’s been 2 weeks since my last post; life has been busy, busy, busy, with its highs, lows and the in betweens.

Since my last post, one of my all time favourite blogs, Daily Candy closed it’s doors for the last time on April 4.  I can’t believe it’s been fourteen years.  I remember the day they started, every fashionista worth her salt in New York, made sure she received her Candy emails, which was nothing more than a stylish newsletter at the time.  Daily Candy eventually branched out to other cities and countries and a blogging star was truly born.

I loved the artwork of the  original illustrator, SuJean Rim, who worked with the site for the first 12 years.  She captured the essence of a “Candy” girl.

I was working for a major record label, when Daily Candy made her debut back in the year 2000, bringing back great memories of living in New York City, and striding through Manhattan in 4″ stilettos.  Thank you Daily Candy for being one of the original daily blogs (you inspired me, and so many others), thanks for the broad range of new fashion designers, home goods, restaurants, daily deals (they were way ahead of Groupon) and many other niceties, you continuously brought our way.

Thank you for a fabulously chic ride, and for being a true pioneer in the blogasphere!

Today Maylana’s Chronicles {formerly Maylana’s Closet} is two years old!! What a fantastic and enlightening journey it has been so far.  A big Thank You to all my followers, who have been here from the very beginning, and those of you, who have joined me along the way.  To all the blogging networks in the US and the UK, thank you for your support and guidance.  I’m so proud of my blog, I have so much more I want to accomplish, but I truly understand, that something extraordinary takes time, and cannot be rushed.  You must crawl, before you can walk.  Everything will come together at exactly the right time!  I am blessed!

Thank you for walking with me on this wonderful blogging journey, there is so much more yet to come.  Stay Tuned

Love, Creativity, Blessings & Light

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

Thank God We’re Fabulous!!

This post is really late!!  Its been a hectic day, I’m trying to get things off my desk, which seem to be multiplying by the thousands, and at the same time, getting ready to attend a big event tomorrow, which I’ll tell you all about over the weekend, and/or Monday.  Guess which one? All I’ll say is, it’s in New Jersey, all over social media, and will air on Nov. 3, what bigger hint can I give?

Well it’s Fabulous Friday Darlings, the weekend is finally here, and Thank God We’re Fabulous!  It’s gotten really chilly here in DC, and it looks like the golden days of our Indian summer are finally behind us, until next spring.

Have yourselves a totally fabulous, and chic weekend, I’m going to leave with the song I’m listening to right now – Music of Life by Cerrone {I may have already posted this song, many blog posts ago), This song reminds me so much of my home town of London…

Enjoy the music of life, because life is a song worth sing!

Blissful Blessings

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…
