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…

Love

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

The Many Colours Of Tom Ford…

In Daily Musings, Object's of Desire on November 26, 2012 at 2:53 pm

 

I haven’t written an Objects Of Desire post in a little while, but here’s one that caught my attention a few days ago.  Mr. Tom Ford has released a complete set of his beautiful nail lacquers exclusively for Neiman Marcus priced at $480.00! 

This  exclusive 16 colour set has every possible shade you would ever need to carry your chic wardrobe from now to next spring/summer to enhance your chic wardrobe.  Tom Ford nail lacquers retail for approximately $30 dollars each; why would you buy a $30 nail lacquer?  Because you’re absolutely worth it! Again this is an Object of Desire, so maybe Santa will leave this under the tree for you, if you’ve been good this year.

Visit Neiman Marcus here

Well today is back to work Monday, after our long 4 day weekend. This is the real countdown to Christmas; how is your gift buying going?  Have you started? Are you going to wait until christmas eve; or are you just buying a little something for you?

Have yourselves a Positive, Productive and Exhilarating week!

 

Chanel’s Fashion Night Duo…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on September 5, 2012 at 7:03 am

UPDATE: 9.5.12 ~ The La Provocante lipstick is already sold out on the Chanel website 😦 I’ll keep you posted!

As everyone knows Thursday, September 6, marks the nationwide style event entitled, Fashion Night Out {FNO}.  To all my followers overseas, FNO is a nationwide event, where every style maven, fashion editor, blogger, and chic shopaholic dressed to the nines, will be sipping cocktails, watching fashion shows, and makeup demonstrations, grabbing goodie bags, and of course shopping at the various participating stores.

Chanel is releasing a limited-edition colour collection, called Les Twin-Sets De Chanel to celebrate fashion’s most exceptional evening with three chic duos for lips and nails.  I’m loving the nail colour Provocation and its corresponding lip colour La Provocante {above}, which is a sexy Merlot coloured red; one of the dark sexy colours debuting this season.  This duo is sure to bring out the seductress in you! {click on link for a surprise!}.

Boosh…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on July 10, 2012 at 9:51 am

 

Update 7.10.12 ~ sweetofstyle  just informed me that she saw the Illamasqua range in Sephora here in the U.S., I’ve just checked and she is absolutely right.  For those of us living in the States, we are also able to get our  Illamasqua Boosh (or other fabulous colour) fix.  Visit a Sephora store or order online. http://www.sephora.com/nail-varnish-P241720

Yesterday, I discovered the most amazing nail polish by a company based in London called Illamasqua.  The colour that drew my attention was this gorgeous glossy black called Boosh {don’t you just love that name?}.  I love black nail polish.  If you want to make a statement, a beautiful high shine black manicure {and/or pedicure} always does the trick.

Go to Illamasqua’s website, the colours available are simply stunning, and come in a spectrum of bold shades with a range of finishes.  Although sold in the UK, there is free shipping to the U.S. with orders over £75  (approx. $116).  My sister is using a colour called Rampage, which is a dark khaki green… Simply Gorgeous! There’s also a huge make-up range which is very popular with my fellow UK  divas.

Happy polishing!

Really Seeing Blue…

In Daily Musings on March 6, 2012 at 12:39 pm

A pop of colour.

 It took me over four hours to complete this post today, due to computer glitches and all sorts of other gremlins, so the title of my post is very appropriate.  I need a cocktail now.  Here you go…

There are some really gorgeous blues out there right now, from neon, to turquoise, to teal, to azure; there’s a whole Crayola box of blues out there.  I will  be incorporating some form of vivid blue into my own spring/summer wardrobe, you should give one or more of these blues a try too.  Get some colour in your life.

Burberry Leather Trench - I love this entire look. The little red bag just seals it!

If you’re not quite ready to take the leap and commit to a blue polish on your fingernails, how about applying it to your pedicure?  This blue would look stunning peeking out of a pair of high-heeled strappy sandals.
