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!

A Lovely Snow Day…

Well we’re having a snow day here in Washington, DC.  As some of you may know, it takes approximately one snowflake to shut DC down!!! Works for me.  We’re expecting approximately 8-12″!  We’ll see.

So to amuse myself, these are the things I’ll be doing today: Drinking tea, watching TV, crocheting and reading The Secret {all of this in bed}, while intermittently snacking on goodies.  I’m going to throughly enjoy my day.

Beautiful Hat II

The Secret - Rhonda Byrne

If you’re looking for some comfort food, here’s a great recipe “Baked Ziti with Spinach, Artichokes and Pesto” I found on Pinterest via “Inspired Taste” , one of my favourite food blogs ~ I’m definitely going to try this one.  Here’s the recipe

For an easy snack, here are some easy to make Mini Chocolate-Chip Breakfast Cookies, taken from another of my favourite food blogs “Chocolate Covered Katie“.  Recipe here

If your snowed in, have a lovely and snuggly snow day; and if you’re not, have yourself the most Amazing day!

Monday Musings…

002 You create

Hi Dahhlings!  Here we are again, another cloudy but beautiful Monday.  Did anyone watch the Grammy’s last night? I won’t go into much detail here, as every blog in the blogosphere is covering it, but did anyone see the Frank Ocean performance “Forest Gump”? What on earth was that? Did he just make that song up as he went along, and then the whistling!!! I rest my case! It was so painful to watch, see for yourself here.

Whitney Houston

Today is one year to the day since Whitney Houston joined God’s choir in the sky.  May her soul be at rest.  One year has really gone by really fast.  Can you remember what you were doing one year ago?

Browsing through my favourite creativity site, Pinterest, I was looking at some street style fashion week photos, this photo of Sai Sankoh grabbed me the most. Love, love the colour of her turban with that very chic dress.

I love this dress by Rachel Roy, very regal.

Wishing you an Amazing, and Fabulous Monday!

Stunningly Green…

I love, love this  gorgeous, emerald-green Valentino Pre-Spring 2013 gown! I’d love to swan around my living room, like the movie stars of old, wearing this stunning creation!

Exquisitely Painted Pumpkins…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on October 25, 2012 at 8:35 am

While perusing the ever so addictive Pinterest, I came across this gorgeous painted pumpkin, which was featured in  the October issue of Chatelaine Magazine.

It was the vibrant colours which really caught my eye.  It never once occurred to me to hollow out a pumpkin, then paint it and fill it with flowers. The good thing is, you don’t even have to hollow out {less work!}, you can just paint as is and viola, a beautiful piece of art created by you!

Thanks to Chatelaine Magazine, this is a DIY project I will try in the near future.  Get yourselves some sample size paints at Home Depot or Lowes and paint away to your heart’s content. Who would have thought!! Off to the supermarket I go!

Autumn Transitions…

In Daily Musings on October 23, 2012 at 12:10 pm

After the extremely hot and humid summer we had {100+ degrees, 20 straight days} I’m actually glad Autumn is finally here, with temperatures ranging between 65 and 75 degrees.  The mornings are now chilly {at least between 35 and 50 degrees} so you now have to dress in layers; but by mid morning/afternoon, its blue skies and gorgeous temperatures.

Here are some of my suggestions for key autumn transition pieces. I know you must have some variation of these looks in your closet.

Purple!! One my absolutely favourite colours. And yes, I will be creating hats similar to this one… Love It!!!

My best purchase of the season ~ Zara Studio Coat which is now sold out

The Maylana’s Closet “Grand” Cowl ~ 85% Wool, 15% Alpaca ~ More colours on the way!

Always have a pop of colour!

oversized sweaters, cowls and extra long scarves are must haves!

Very much in love with these Steve Madden “Fraankie” Boots ~ For $150 they’re a great purchase, compared to others. ~click to buy ~

This is is going to be an ongoing post, I will be posting more ideas for your fall/winter wardrobe, as well as posting some of my own key pieces.

Monday’s Tête-à-Tête, Pinterest & Other Musings…

In Daily Musings on October 22, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Happy Monday Sweethearts! How was your weekend?  Mine was restful, the weather was gorgeous, and honestly I did not accomplish everything I wanted, but I relaxed, got another cowl started, and had a wonderful and creative exchange of ideas with my sister, as to how we want to expand our entrepreneurial endeavours.

I did not go to the Women Who Rock exhibit at the National Women In The Arts Museum as I mentioned in Friday’s post, but I promise, I will be stopping by soon; so that I can tell you all about it {I’ve got until Jan 6! :-)}

A little artistic amusement for you!

And lastly, I found these gorgeous yellow suede wedges on Pinterest, they have absolutely nothing to do with anything, but I felt they would brighten your Monday {they’ll certainly brighten mine}; plus I LOVE THEM!!  I hope you’ll check out my Pinterest boards, {there are 35 and counting!}.  If you’re a Pinterest addict like I am; follow me, let me know, and I’ll follow you; I’d love to see what you’re up to.  Creativity is what life is all about!!  Click here to see boards

Wishing you a Fantastic and Productive Monday

A Colourful Wednesday…

In Daily Musings on September 12, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Happy Wednesday Dahhlings!  We’re half way there, speeding towards the weekend; so to help you along, I’m sending some cheerful colour into your life.

I Found this gorgeous shot on Pinterest and had to post it for you.  I felt the colours were amazing with her exotic almond shaped eyes, and decided that all this sparkle, was just the thing to perk you up, and help you through the next 2 days. WE’RE NEARLY THERE!

I need your help; can anyone think of another term for Wednesday instead of “hump day“?  I really dislike that term!  Isn’t there something more fun and a little more chic we could use?

Wednesday With A Swirl…

In Daily Musings on August 22, 2012 at 9:37 am

I was a little hesitant to post this image as I have no idea who designed this stunning creation of a dress.  My sister always advises me, to try to post designer information whenever possible.  If anyone knows who the designer is, please let me know.

The fit; the beading, the swirl of the train, with its Pucciesque print {could it be Pucci?} is in a word… Gorgeous!  The print reminds me of the beautiful latte art some baristas are able to create with steaming milk; a skill in itself, which can take years to master.

For me it truly is, Wednesday with a swirl.

 Happy Wednesday Dahhlings!
