Your Destiny Reading…

In Daily Chronicles on October 27, 2015 at 12:32 pm

 

Daily Read, T.D. Jakes, #tdjakes, #inspiration, inspiration,  destiny

I simply love books which inspire and motivate.  I’m on a major spiritual journey, and I’m absorbing as much as I can in order to succeed on my path to greatness.  I must be able to help others as well as myself.  Growing and becoming the best woman I can be is a constant and daily goal, I must strive for and be better than I was yesterday.  My current daily read is Destiny Daily Readings, inspirations for Your life’s Journey by T.D. Jakes.

This little gem is a companion to Bishop Jakes new book Destiny, which I will start reading soon.  It’s a book of affirmations, meditations and scripture with suggested action steps on fulfilling your God-given role day by day. It’s definitely food for thought.  If you’re on a spiritual journey like I am, this book is for you. Purchase yours here.

Happy reading.

Lupita’s Beauty…

Lupita Nyong'o, Essence Magazine, #lupitanyongo, #essencemagazine, Maylana's Chronicles, Maylana's Closet #maylanascloset

Oscar Nominee Lupita Nyong’o has taken Hollywood by storm and in my opinion by complete surprise.  Lupita is either gracing a magazine cover, complete with beautiful layouts, adorning gorgeous designer dresses.  She is winning every award, and deservedly so.  This Yale educated, beautiful and talented actress, is doing for black women, what Alek Wek did back in the early 90’s.  It is beautiful to see a beautiful, chocolate hued woman representing me in Hollywood.  It’s beautiful to see a woman whose hair is as short as mine, representing all black women who have chosen not to go the weave or wig route.

There is nothing wrong if you choose to wear weaves or wigs, but those of us with cropped, short or baldies tend to be shunned and not seen as beautiful.  Luckily I’ve always been very confident, therefore my short hair {sometimes baldie, depending on my mood} does not dictate who I am, though it is part of who I am as a woman.  I’ve just listened to Lupita’s graceful and moving speech on black beauty at the annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood event; for me it was extremely soul-stirring, moving and timely, I felt her speech deep down inside my soul.

Thank you Lupita, for your grace, your elegance and your extraordinary talent.  Thank you for sharing your own personal journey with your skin tone, and letting the world know, that you don’t have to be a light-skinned black woman, with a long flowing weave {or naturally long hair} to make it in this world.

Let’s wish Lupita the very best of luck at tonight’s Academy Awards Ceremony, she deserves every accolade.

No Super Bowl XLVIII Here!!!

What I’ll be doing during Super Bowl

I’m really not into the Super Bowl, every news, and talk show program this past week has made a reference or dedicated an entire show to this event. The only thing about the Super Bowl that entertains me, are the commercials, and to see which player is more handsome than the other, for me that’s the full extent of the Super Bowl.  So this evening is going to be a night of pampering, book reading, journal writing, watching Downton Abby and catching up on all those shows that have been sitting in my DVR since last year.

Susie Larson Blessings For The Evening #maylanaschronicles Maylana's Chronicles

I was given a gift at Christmas, of this beautiful little book, which I’m reading right now; it’s Susie Larson’s “Blessing’s for the Evening.  This is such an elegant little book, which is quite heavy for its size, with a beautiful padded cover, complete with gorgeous photography and inspirational quotes to help you wind down your evening on a positive note.  The premise is to read a devotional each night, but it’s so beautifully written,  and feels so lovely in your hands, you can’t help but read a few pages at a time.  You can see Susie’s beautiful quotes on Pinterest.

 

Blessings for the evening quote

 

For those of you who are football fans… Enjoy! May your team win! I’ll be sipping a glass of red.

Just Be Happy…

It’s been a hectic and extremely demanding last couple of weeks {my blog post about the Pink concert two weeks ago is still in draft!}.  I hope you had a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving day, and since you’re probably completely stuffed from all that food, you’re now detoxing until Christmas, where we’ll do it all over again!

I was talking to a girl friend of mine, and she introduced me to the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, which is from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. My friend has been listening to this song to start and end her day and swears it keeps her in a good mood.  I have to say when I first heard it, I repeated it about 4 or 5 times, there is just something so catchy and “happy” about it, it makes you want to dance around the house like I did when I heard it.  Plus it doesn’t hurt, that I think Pharrell’s quite handsome to boot!

So if you’re feeling a little low, here’s Pharrell’s Happy to perk you up!

Monday Love…

Happy Monday

Hi Darlings! Aren’t you happy that Monday is here again?  It’s a new week to start over, complete what you started last week, to begin anew.  Don’t look at Monday as a downer, look at it as a bright and shiny new beginning.

The above photograph was taken by me, of the much underrated Carnation. The Carnation is inexpensive and easy to come by, and is mocked for her cheapness.  But one thing about this beautiful flower, is she’s more hearty than the other more expensive flora we like to buy {you can easily get 10 or more days out of her}, available year round, and comes in an array of colours, which compliments any décor.  Just because she’s cheap, doesn’t mean she’s not beautiful♥

Be Love ♥ Be Light ♥ Be Amazing™

Boss Friday…

Boss

Hi Darlings, Happy Friday!  This week has seemed exceptionally long to me, but I think it’s because of the short week last week, which also seemed long.

This quote really inspired me today, and as I quoted on my Facebook page,”My crown is straightened! It’s Boss Friday!” because this is how I truly feel today.   I hope your gorgeous crown is  straightened too, stand tall Darlings.

Today is a bit of a dreary day, with lots of rain, due to the hurricane coming up from down south, but it’s needed, so no complaints here.  Below is my 2nd creation, using my Bazaart app, I need to start naming my pieces, just in case they make me famous. 🙂

Bazaart 2 - edit

I’d love to wish you a Fabulous and Beautiful weekend, get lots done, and make whatever you do count!

Be Creative, Be Inspired, Be Amazing™

Finding Delight On A Wednesday…

In Daily Musings on October 24, 2012 at 10:37 am

This quote fittingly describes the woman I am today! I truly do find delight in anything ridiculous.  You must be able to have a good laugh at yourself and at life, and shout out loud… Who cares! Once you let go of all the nonsense, life  becomes much more Enlightening, Free, Exhilarating, and Super Extraordinary.  Get yourself a Lively and Playful disposition TODAY!

As my sister (my staunchest supporter) recently told me “Twinkle Twinkle You’re A Star” That also means YOU!

Here’s a cupcake for you!

Happy Wednesday Dahhlings
