2015 - Let It Go

 

Hi Darlings! Now that the partying and celebrations have come to a close, it’s now time to start our personal journey to fulfilling our resolutions, declarations, promises, whatever term you care to use.  I feel it in my bones, that 2015 is going to be a marvelous year.

Always remember, if an obstacle should present itself and get in your way, it’s only purpose is to help you grow.  Learn the lesson and move on!

I found the above quote on Facebook, for me it sums up how I’m thinking succinctly!

 

Love, Light & Blessings

If you love beautiful stationary like I do, you’ll love the Sugar Paper Planners and Calendars Collection at Target.  I love Target, you know when you walk in there, there’s going to be something pretty and interesting, just tempting you to buy and take home (even if you just ran in for bottled water!).  I’m quite taken with Sugar Paper’s spiral bound 2015 journal and the slim gold one, which is very elegant and small enough to pop into your handbag.  Prices range from $7.99 to $14.99.

The collection launched back in October, so once their gone, they’re gone, but there was still quite a good selection available in my local target.  If you’re looking for stocking stuffers or a last-minute gift, get there soon, as I’m not sure how much longer items are going to be available.

Pop over to  Sugar Paper’s website, which is absolutely beautiful and elegant; with note sets, calendars, art prints and everything beautiful to do with paper in gorgeous fonts.  You can also customize certain items with monogramming, and as a special treat, they have free desk top wallpapers you can download to brighten up your desk top and mobile devices.  This is a paper queen’s paradise!

My Declaration

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!

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

New Year, Birthdays And Me…

BIRTHDAY

Hi Dahlings!!! I’M BAAACK!!! I had a lovely Christmas and New Years and lots of rest!! Although I will say my rest also consisted of crocheting hats, I have been so busy with orders and welcoming new customers to the Maylana’s Closet boutique. I hope you rang in the New Year fabulously, and on day five you’re still sticking to whatever New Years resolutions you may have made.  I did not make resolutions per se, but there are things I WILL accomplish this year. I am very much looking forward to 2013, This is going to be an amazing year!!

Today my blog turns 1-year-old!! I am so proud!  According to my WordPress stats, my blog welcomed nearly 80,000 visitors from nearly every corner of the earth last year; for me that’s a major accomplishment.  When I started this blog, I had no idea what was going to happen with it, I just knew it would be an avenue for me to express myself, show my creative side and connect with the world.  I’ve always wanted this blog to be a cross between Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, O ~Oprah and the New York Times style section rolled into one. I plan for it to be so much more.

This blog has always been for women in the know, who love beautiful things. I want to thank all of my followers and fellow bloggers from all over the world, for being active participants, posting comments, sharing advice and just giving everything a newbie blogger could ask for.

Lots happening this year.  Over the coming months, look out for more photos taken by me with my Canon T3i {which I’m still learning to use}, more style features, Maylana about town, informative articles, and so much more.  Very soon, for a couple of weeks, this blog will be all about my visit to my hometown, London, England.  I will be, blogging about my trip, where I’ll be celebrating a milestone birthday {Jan 21}.  I bet you can’t guess what milestone this is! :-).  Look out for lots of photos, new finds for the Maylana’s Closet boutique, and all the fun I plan to have while there.

So to start the celebrations, click here to sing along to Stevie Wonder’s Happy Birthday.

Wishing you all a Blessed, Fabulous, Amazing, and Prosperous 2013!!!

Cheers

Cheers!!

My Closet Door

In Daily Musings on January 6, 2012 at 9:20 am

I’ve decided to paint my closet door. I love this colour, I know you can’t see much of it but it’s beautiful. The colour is a blue/green, I’m going to Home Depot to see if they can match for me.  One of my other projects for 2012 is to get my closet to look just like this on the inside!!

Beautiful colour.
