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

Mark and Graham, Paper Weight, Love, Love You #love #loveyou

Paper Weight, Kiss, #kiss #valentinesday, Valentines Day, #love, Love,

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

Cyrano’s Kiss…

In Monday Musings on November 18, 2013 at 9:56 am

johnny-eager-robert-taylor-lana-turner

I love black and white movies, and decided to have a marathon last night, snuggled on the couch, with a bowl of kettle corn popcorn and a cocktail {or two!}. While comfortably fixed on TMC {Turner Classic Movies} “Johnny Eager” with Lana Turner and Robert Taylor came on.  In one scene, Lana Turner quotes Cyrano de Bergerac, a play, written by Edmond Rostand, which I haven’t read since high school.  I’m a bit of a romantic {the Aquarian in me}, and this quote Lana Turner’s character conveyed from memory just spoke to me:

“And what is a kiss, specifically? A pledge properly sealed, a promise seasoned to taste, a vow stamped with the immediacy of a lip, a rosy circle drawn around the verb ‘to love.’ A kiss is a message too intimate for the ear, infinity captured in the bee’s brief visit to a flower, secular communication with an aftertaste of heaven, the pulse rising from the heart to utter its name on a lover’s lip: ‘Forever.” 

This beautiful quote makes me want to read the book all over again.  I found a copy on Amazon for $4.56, I think I’ll treat myself

Here’s another beauty from Cyrano, I couldn’t resist posting:

“My heart always timidly hides itself behind my mind. I set out to bring down stars from the sky, then, for fear of ridicule, I stop and pick little flowers of eloquence.”

Cyrano de Bergerac

Romance at its absolute best! Written so eloquently by Edmond Rostand.

Have a Fabulous and Beautiful Monday!

It’s A New Dawn, It’s A New Day…

Sika Dress and Me

Hi Darlings, I thought I’d post an update to let you know how I’m doing on my self reflecting hiatus {and also show off my fabulous Sika dress}.  I’m FANTASTIC!!! It’s been a challenging couple of months in my personal life, and that’s why I decided to put my blog on hiatus until the dust cleared.  I’m happy to say 90% of the dust has settled into sparkling fairy dust, and my creativity is bouncing back with a force and passion, I’ve never seen before. It’s amazing how so much light can come out of a dark place.

♥Stay Strong♥

There comes a time in all of our lives when things look really bleak, but I’m here to tell you that if you just hold on, don’t give up and try your utmost to keep those negative thoughts at bay, you will come through {read “The Secret“}.  Try your best to have some sense of normalcy, don’t throw yourself into a pit of depression, there’s nothing for you down there.  Remember there are lessons to be learned through every life experience, especially the bad, and I’ve been blessed to have learned quite a few these past months.  As far as I’m concerned it’s though God’s grace that I have come through my own predicament, a place I’ve never been before, and hope I never experience again.  The most important thing is, I’ve learned so much more about myself, I’ve learned what’s really important.  These new tools will guide me on my new path for the rest of my life’s journey.

♥Never Give Up♥

I’m choosing not to disclose what I’ve been through on my blog, because my blog is a happy place, and some things really are just personal. I also realize there are others, going through so much more than I did, so it’s important to me to try to inspire at least one person to Never Ever Give Up… Ever!

For those of you who read the bible, read Psalm 121 daily, believe me it’s very powerful; for those who know this Psalm, you know what I mean.

♥Exciting New Things♥

As I’ve mentioned before, in the coming months, there will be lots of exciting and lovely new things coming to my blog and my company; I’d love for you to stay tuned, and continue on this fabulous journey with me! In the meantime, I will continue my hiatus, with short bursts of inspiration until September.  Namaste♥

Valentine's Day

The ubiquitous allocated day of “Love” is upon us once again. Whether you believe it’s one of the most commercialized holidays, selling flowers and gourmet chocolates at over inflated premium prices, or you’re a die hard romantic, who truly believes in “Valentine’s Day” either way, there is no way to miss it.

Whether you have a significant other or not, enjoy the day, but more importantly, LOVE yourself!  Today, celebrate how much YOU’VE grown over the past year, LOVE YOURSELF for that.  Celebrate how much YOU’VE accomplished, love yourself for that too.

Even if you do have a significant other to bring you flowers, go out and buy yourself a bunch just because you love you too.  If not flowers, treat yourself to something, it can be as small or as large as you like. I know Valentine’s day is supposed to be about romance, but why not romance yourself? You deserve it.

Valentine's Day

Go to Starbucks and buy yourself that Venti Caramel Macchiato with extra caramel. instead of your usual grande with skimmed milk. Go to Godiva and buy yourself the box of treats which contains 4 of their best-selling chocolates, and sit and eat them all at once, or even better, buy yourself 2 of their huge chocolate covered strawberries and eat them at once too.

My point is, Treat Yourself, Love Yourself, make Valentines Day whatever you’d like it to be, and if you choose to ignore Valentines Day altogether, you can sit in front of your TV wearing whatever you like, and watch a few reruns of NCIS or Castle {USA and TNT respectively}… Hey, that’s just fine too!  Just pour yourself a glass of wine, while you’re at it!

{From The Archives} 10 Things…

In Daily Musings on December 9, 2012 at 12:22 pm

This is a post I wrote back in May.  It’s very timely for me at the moment and I hope it is for you too.  It’s just a gentle reminder that we must always take care of ourselve.

“Life Is A Song Worth Singing” This is the title from one of my favourite Teddy Pendergrass albums.  Life truly is worth singing! 

Happy Sunday to you… Mwah 🙂

It’s Friday!!!! Time to kick up your heels, and celebrate the weekend.

Here are a 10 things you should do for yourself this weekend.  Pick a few or better yet do them all. You’ve got 2 days!!

  1. Buy yourself some flowers or an orchid plant
  2. Treat yourself to a mani/pedi and if it’s not in the budget do it yourself.
  3. Give yourself a facial, your skin will love you for it. (click link for homemade recipe)
  4. Treat yourself to a quality glass of wine or better yet champagne and if you don’t drink pour some sparkling cider in your best champagne flute and toast yourself for being such a fantastic person.
  5. Go to Barnes & Noble or any bookstore and treat yourself to a good book; here’s one for you, Roots of Style” by Isabel Toledo
  6. Take a walk.  Just walk around the neighbourhood.  2 things will happen here; (a) you’ll get some exercise and (b) you may just notice something you never noticed before.  If you live in a boring neighbourhood, drive/walk somewhere, where there’s scenery and walk there (no excuses).
  7. Buy or download the Anthony Hamilton cd “Back to Love” you’ll be glad you did.
  8. Buy or download the new Estelle cd, “All of Me“, you’ll be glad you did that too.
  9. Instead of having breakfast at home on Sunday, get dressed, find somewhere cute and go out for brunch, let someone else cook for a change
  10. Sunday night take a luxurious bubble bath, with your glass of champagne/sparkling cider, and the book you bought, then relax and think about how wonderful you are, and how much you’re looking forward to the brilliant and blessed week ahead of you.

Have a fabulous weekend Chicas!
