Hiatus

 

Hello darlings!

Today I made the difficult decision to place my blog on hiatus.  My blog is really important to me, but in my opinion, if I can’t dedicate 100% then don’t do it at all.  I have so much going on right now, huge life changes, which just don’t allow me the brain space to  create blog posts, go out and about and take photos or research what I’m writing about, then edit and do all the other wonderful things that we bloggers do to make our blogs exciting and worth reading. Putting my blog on hiatus, allows me to step back, take a deep breath and allow the universe to do what it does best.

2015 has already shaped up to be an interesting year for me, and with so much going on, it’s become overwhelming.  I’m not sure how long I’ll be away, but I’m hoping to return mid August, early September.

From time to time, I may post a quick blog post here and there, but the best way to keep up with me is to follow me @maylana on Instagram, @maylana on Pinterest or @maylanascloset on Twitter.  I promise you, I will eventually write about my travels to Dubai, which was so amazing and I feel truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to visit such an exotic and at the same time a thoroughly modern country.  I’m looking forward to sharing the wonderful photos and my lovely experience there.  I’m so glad I traveled to Dubai at the beginning of the year, because it may not have happened at all.

Be Creative, Be Peaceful, Be You

See you soon!

Marie Forleo’s B-School and Me…

In Weekend Chronicles on February 21, 2015 at 11:42 am

Hi Darlings! I have been missing for a few weeks (again!).  Busy creating the life I want.  My life has been one big whirl wind lately, so many fantastic changes happening with me, my company and my brand.  One of the things I’ve done, is to enrolled myself in Marie Forleo’s B-School.  If you haven’t heard of her, you need to go to her site and check her out here.  I learned about Marie from a new business associate I recently met, and this information came into my life right on time.  It’s true that you do meet people who the universe chooses to present to you, in order to bring something extraordinary into your life.

Quick synopsis about Marie Forleo’s B-School; It is an 8 week, interactive video-based training program that teaches smart, effective online marketing strategies to business owners who want more sales and more impact from their online presence.

Marie Forleo’s B-School is about creating the life and business that you really want. It’s a little expensive, but for me, anything that is going to take my business and my life to the next level is worth its weight in gold (plus it’s a tax write off!).  I’ve done my research, and in my opinion, Marie is the real deal.  Registration is going on now, through to March 2, classes start March 9.  In the meantime, Marie has been sending out fantastic videos to us B-School students, to get us started, before class officially begins; I’m so looking forward to this new chapter of my life! I’ll keep you updated on my journey.

On another note; while on Pinterest this morning, these two beautiful quotes really struck me…

If you’re buried under piles of dirty snow like I am, with more sleet and snow expected, Stay Safe, Stay Warm, Stay Creative!

I Just Had To Share…

In Daily Chronicles, Daily Musings on October 14, 2014 at 2:13 pm

Hello Darlings:

For those of you who had the pleasure of a long weekend, I hope you enjoyed it, and in the process, got yourselves some well deserved rest. This is it until Thanksgiving, so I hope you’ve recharged your batteries, and you’re raring to go.  For some of you this may be the final leg of whatever you’ve started this year, and for others it’s just the beginning.  No matter where you are in your endeavors, always remember you are on time, you are not in a race with anyone else.

As I was going through my daily peruse through Pinterest this morning, this quote popped up in my feed and really struck me.  I love all of it, but the intensity of the second paragraph summed it all up for me:

You must allow beauty to shatter you regularly...

What do you like about this quote?

Have yourselves a beautifully blessed day

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.

Pant Dress

Naeem Khan Resort 2014

I absolutely adore cigarette pants with an open ballroom skirt {with side pockets no less!}.

This style is a throwback to the 1940’s.  Very elegant!

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.

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

Do You Bazaart?

Bazaart #collage #art #inspire #Inspiration

I must confess, I have an addiction; an addiction to iTunes apps!  I have approximately 70+ apps on my iPhone and God knows how many I’ve accumulated on my iPad {and yes I use them all!!}  My lastest acquisition is Bazaart.  This amazing app works with Pinterest, and allows you to take your images from your various boards, and turn them into beautiful collages.  You can snip, move, rotate and more to your creative heart’s desire.

Above is my first foray into creating a collage with this app; I think I’m going to have it blown up, and framed {Ikea does some wonderful  frames}. Look out for more of my “works of art

Let me know what you think, if you download the app, maybe I’ll create a Bazaart gallery to display our collective creativity.

Go to the iTunes store, where Bazaart is available as a free download. Click here.

A Bank Holiday & Iced Coffee

In Daily Musings on May 27, 2013 at 3:06 pm

Boozy Iced Coffee- Averie Cooks

Hi Darlings! I hope you’re enjoying the bank holiday, both here and in the UK.  Although I’ve had an extremely busy week, I’m enjoying a marvelously long weekend; by getting lots of errands and projects done. While cruising Pinterest, I came across this lovely {and easy} Creamy Boozy Iced Coffee recipe, by one of my favourite foodie bloggers Averie Sunshine; who runs the blog Averie Cooks.  What I love about this particular iced coffee is that it contains Frangelico, which is a liqueur made with toasted hazelnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, cocoa and vanilla extract.  Averie takes some of the most fantastic food photography, trust me you’ll come away drooling.

I’m looking for some new drink recipes to try out this summer, and this will certainly be one of them.  I’ll post them as I find them, so that you can try them too.  Click the link or the image to be taken to the full recipe, I’m sure you’ll feel it’s worth it.

Wishing you a fabulously short week.

Will Spring Ever Get Here?

In Daily Musings on May 8, 2013 at 10:39 am

Summer White

Well Darlings, Spring  has left us once again; it has been a rainy and dreary 3 days here in Washington, DC, the sun has once again disappeared.  Apparently this is the 2nd coldest Spring on record, and right now this spring is heading towards being the coldest.  It was slighter warmer this time in 1975! It makes me wonder what this summer is going to be like… Will there be one?

The above image was found on Pinterest; I thought she looked so elegant, with her white dress and nude shoes… very summer.  I also think the perforated snake-skin Piccadilly wedge by Belstaff {love the wood panel} below, would also be gorgeous with this dress.  Hopefully we’ll all be wearing our spring/summer niceties very soon; if this weather ever changes!

Happy Wednesday, Have yourselves a beautiful day!

A Very Chic Friday, With Water…

In Daily Musings on April 19, 2013 at 3:22 pm

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.

Tom Ford

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.
