Beautiful Peonies 2

Wow! This day has been extremely busy, hence why I’m only just writing this quick blog post after 9:00 p.m.  I hope you had a fantastic weekend, I certainly did, even if the weather, once again did not cooperate, but we’ve come to expect it now.  Above are the beautiful Peonies I purchase at Whole Foods on Friday.  It’s important ladies, that you treat yourself to flowers, don’t wait for someone else to buy them for you, go out and treat yourself; you deserve them every week!

The above photo was taken with my Canon T3i, which I’ve been practicing with.  The shot I’m most proud of is the one below.

This is going to be an extremely busy week for me, so my posts may be a little sparse, but I promise to keep in touch, with short bursts of fabulous interest.

Have yourselves a Beautiful week

Happy Friday darlings! We finally made it and the weekend is here.   I’m happy to report that so far we’ve had 2 gorgeous days of sun and blue skies.  I hope you have something wonderful in store for your weekend.  Get lots done!!

Above is a photograph, I took yesterday of some beautiful flowers blooming in my neighbourhood.  They just appeared from nowhere.  I think they got some major encouragement from the lovely weather, and wanted to show off their pink glory.  I would love for you to right-click on the photo, and save it, whereby, you can turn it into wall paper for your iPad or computer {it looks stunning on my iPad}.  Just a little Friday treat from me to you.

Have yourselves the most Ultra Chic and Wonderful weekend, see you soon!

Such A Darling Shoe, And Other Musings…

Darling Shoe by Jeffrey Campbell

I’m in love with the “Darling Pump” by Jeffrey Campbell.  There’s nothing like a simple high-heeled pointy toe stiletto in a fabulous pop of mint.

Spring 2013

It’s Friday, the weekend is here, right now it’s 78 degrees, so with the sun shining brightly, I wore my own pops of colour.  If you love the bangles, they are available in the blog shop; more beautiful colours to be posted this weekend.

I’m planning to see “The Great Gatsby” this weekend, I’ll give you my take on what appears to be a very extravagant and fabulous movie, directed by Baz Luhrmann. Although I haven’t seen it yet, I have a slight issue, that Mr. Luhrmann decided to use modern-day music, i.e. Rap, and Pop as the musical score for a film taking place in the art deco, flapper era {after all it was executive produced by Jay Z}; but then again Baz has always thought outside the box with his movies.

I’ll refrain from judgment until I’ve actually seen it; it’ll be interesting to see how it all goes together…  Stay tuned!

Have yourselves a beautiful and fabulous weekend.

Flowes 2

Hi Darlings, happy Monday to you! I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did.

I think Mother Nature did not get the memo that its spring, because right now it’s 45 degrees and cold! This has been the oddest spring to date, the weather does not seem to be able to make up it’s mind.  As a reminder of the spring we’re supposed to be having, here’s a photo, which I took near my home last week.

Wishing you the most fabulous and productive week.

A Very Chic Friday, With Water…

Jimmy Choo Shoes

It’s been a busy day, so today’s post is going to be short and sweet.  Aren’t the Jimmy Choo shoes above just simply gorgeous!! Spring has truly sprung with these beauties.  Also the photography is whimsical and beautiful; I imagine an updated and rather stylish Alice falling down the rabbit hole in “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland“.

I’m also in love with the silver Tom Ford Sandals below, they’ll  be added to the “Maylana’s Dream List“, which I haven’t created in quite some time.  Look out for new dream list items soon.

I’m on a major health kick right now, and I wanted to share this refreshing detox beverage, which I like to drink often.  It’s very simple, lemons, cucumbers and mint! Click on the image to be taken to the lovely “The Denver Housewife” blog; who has more recipe details, and who posted this beautiful bottle on Pinterest.

I want to wish you a Fabulous Friday and a Fantastic and Inspired weekend.

Sports car

On the way to Frozen-Yo, I saw this beauty parked outside.  I’d love to take a spin, wearing a gorgeous Hermes scarf, worn exactly like the picture below; blowing elegantly in the breeze.  Simply the perfect car {and perfect colour} for this gorgeous weather we’re having.  Thank goodness, it’s a little cooler today at 85 degrees {we reached a whopping 91 yesterday}.

Vintage Impresario….

Vintage Coat

On Sunday, the most amazing afro caught my eye, and that’s how  I met the most unique and extraordinary woman by the name of Makkah, who is the owner of Revolution Vintage in Baltimore.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I was in Baltimore, and happened to stumble upon this charming little boutique.  While there, Makkah and I struck up a lovely conversation, whereby, I purchased what I thought was one of the most beautiful vintage coats.  Makkah offered me the most wonderful deal, once I told her I was a blogger, which I could not pass up, so wonderful in fact, I dare not tell you how much!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The best way to describe Makkah’s boutique, is it’s a delightful bazaar of unusual and eclectic finds; like a Magpies’ nest of colourful and shiny things, you don’t know what you should look at first.  A hodge podge mix of vintage dresses, coats and scarves hung on coat racks and laid across old fashion sofas, fabulous accessories spilled on a dresser for good measure.  As you can see, Makkah herself is a stunning vision of colours, and creativity, exuding the most artistic of auras.  I found her when the market was nearly closing, because I’m sure I could have spent half the day with her if I had found her earlier.

You can find the lovely Makkah on Instagram @revolutionvintage, where she has some of the most amazing photos, or if you’re in the area, visit her boutique at the Patapsco Indoor Flea Market in Baltimore.  It’s so worth it!

Cherry Blossoms And All…

Cherry Blossoms

Happy Monday! I had another fantastic weekend, the weather was absolutely gorgeous!!! 60 degrees on Saturday and a whopping 67 yesterday.  Apparently we’re heading for 70 degrees today, lets enjoy it while we can.  While I was out, I made a spontaneous decision to drive down to the Tidal Basin in downtown DC… Wow!  The traffic was at a major standstill, so all I could get was this drive by photo of a few cherry trees.  Side note: Metro really is the only way to visit the Cherry Blossoms!

Most of the trees were not in full bloom, but the crowd was definitely there.  I’m  hoping to return next weekend with my Canon T3i, when they should be fully bloomed in all their pink and white glory.

Stay tuned for my upcoming blog post {maybe later today or tomorrow} on my trip to Baltimore, where I met the most wonderful and eccentric vintage store owner.  You’ll see why she truly deserves her own post!

I hope you’re having a Fabulous and Amazing Monday!

And remember…

Have A Fabulous Easter…

Happy Easter fabulous Bunnies {I still don’t understand how bunnies and Easter became associated, but I digress!} Wishing you a blessed, light filled and beautiful day.  Above is the ultimate Easter bonnet.  If you’re going to wear one, you may as well do it stylishly.

chocolate-filled-half-egg

Growing up in London, every Easter, my mum used to treat us to these huge milk chocolate eggs, which were filled with more chocolate surprises, and sometimes small toys.  These eggs seem to be very hard to find here in the States, and if you do find them, they’ve been imported from England, and sold at exorbitant prices!

 Big sis please ship one to me!!

I couldn’t resist this Easter baby!

I would love to wish all of you, an Amazing, Blessed and Extra Special Easter weekend!
