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!

An Inspirational Moment…

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!

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…

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…

The Return…

Loving life in Sepia #maylanascloset #style #chic

Wow!!! I’ve been gone a long time!! (Since June to be exact) but I am back feeling wonderful and truly full of life. This blissful, spiritual, and constantly learning journey I’m on, has been truly amazing, taking the hard lowball hits with the wonderful euphoric highs; I’m glad to be back!!! New Name, New Attitude, New Me! 

 New Name   

I’ve decided to rename my blog “Maylana’s Chronicles“, which will be more in line with the direction my blog is going in.  Maylana’s Closet will strictly be my boutique where you’ll continue to find beautiful vintage and new items, crochet accessories, and all things beautiful.  Watch out for fabulous new items, showcasing soon! Maylana’s Closet will also remain the name of my Facebook , Twitter and Tumblr pages.

Self Hosting

To take my blog to the next level self hosting is necessary, and coming very soon, so there will be a new blog layout.  I’m really excited about the new look and feel of my online magazine.  I will continue to bring you my interpretation of timeless style, beautiful clothing/accessories, beauty, cool gadgets, great stories, positive affirmations, and a beautiful ray of chic sunshine to bring a sparkle to your day. I truly wanted to start over with the new theme, but there are so many beautiful ones out there, and it was taking too long for me to make a final choice; so watch out for layout change soon.

I will continue to use the url www.maylanascloset.com until the final migration.  For those of you looking for a self hosting platform, my research has shown Blue Host to be one of the best, and is also highly recommended by WordPress.

Thank You 

Thanks to all of you who continued to read my blog; read all my older entries from the archives; sent words of encouragement, and truly supported me.  Many thanks to my new followers, who started discovered and started following when I was not blogging on a regular basis {there were quite a few of you); and thanks to those of you who recently recommended my blog to your inner circles and sent out lots of tweets promoting my blog to your own followers, which in turn caused my blog to grow even more… LOVE YOU♥♥  I was really worried about being gone for so long, but due to the fantastic support I was blessed with, I had no need.  I’m honored to be part of the blogging community.

Maylana’s New Anthem

I’m going to leave you with my new anthem… Katy Perry’s Roar! Listen to the words, watch the video carefully, get the message. This song spoke to me, from the moment I heard it, this song is me. Truly an anthem for those of us, moving forward, 4″ heels and all!

Hi Darlings! Yes I know I said I’d return in September, but my goodness it was a truly busy, yet wonderful month for me.  Can you believe September is over! My intention is to return to my new blogging schedule next week, now that I’ve settled into a fabulous new routine.  I’ve truly missed you guys, and cannot wait to get back to my creative outlet, bringing you style, inspiration and my heightened passion for “All things beautiful“.  In the meantime, look towards your blessings, there’s so much coming your way!

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♥

Best 10 Minute Workout For Fabulous Arms…

In Musings While On Hiatus on July 22, 2013 at 1:49 pm

Michelle-Obama

There’s nothing sexier, than beautifully toned arms in a gorgeous summer dress.  Looking for Michelle Obama’s arms?  Here’s a workout from PopSugar Fitness, I’ve been incorporating into my daily routine for a while now {I do these every morning and evening}, and thought it would be great to share this video with you.  As a bonus, with this particular work out, you’re also toning your core, so you’re getting two for one in 10 minutes {flat tummy anyone!}. I love PopSugar work outs, they are tailored especially for woman, and you truly do get great results, without bulking up; toned is sexy!

Aren’t you worth 10 minutes?

If I’m looking for words of inspiration and motivation, whether to use in my blog or just as a quick pick me up, I can always look to Pinterest for beautiful wording.  There are hundreds of boards with beautiful inspirational messages to inspire and motivate you.  Here are just a few of my favourites.

Being Well Dressed -cropped

I Believe

Love - We Have hope

Dear Past

Love - thouth the mountains...

I could post so much more, but you’d be reading all day.  I hope you’ve found words of encouragement and/or inspiration among these treasures.  If you’d like to see more of my Quotes & Inspiration board on Pinterest, click here

The above collage titled “Love Flow” was created using the Bazaart app, which I wrote about in this post. I found out this morning that Bazaart retweeted it.  This is the second time, they’ve retweeted one of my collages {they retweeted my very first collage in the linked blog post}, this was a brilliant start to my day

I still plan to start the Bazaart gallery, as a collaboration with other bloggers and readers, I’d love to see what you’ve created.

Wishing you a Love & Light filled Wednesday
