A Stylish Return…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on July 9, 2012 at 9:30 am

It’s been one busy week! After finishing up a contract, going to lunch meetings to discuss where I’m taking the Maylana’s Closet empire next; taking numerous photos for my Etsy store (still in uploading phase, its never-ending) and then on top of that melting away in 100 degree heat! I think I have good reason to be MIA the last 4 days.  Well I’m back, rejuvenated, creative juices flowing and ready to roll! You may have noticed a few minor changes.  I’ve finally figured out how to add a tag line to my site “Living Out Loud ~ Today and Every Day” It’s a motto I’ve been living by for the last couple of years and it’s served me well.

I’ve also added a Blog Shop page; watch that space {visit it now to see a beautiful outfit from the Alexander McQueen resort collection}; lot’s of beautiful things coming soon. It will be a duplicate of some of my Etsy store listings which contains vintage items, but there will also be new/preloved items which don’t come under “vintage”, Etsy is very specific.  I will also be showcasing huge colourful crochet cowls and hats created by me for Fall/Winter 2012. My About Page has also had minor tweaking.

I was going to write a whole post on my new HP TouchSmart 520-1070 computer, but for brevity, I’m now only going to dedicate a small amount of space to it. Of course that’s my new baby above and below.  All I can say about it is I Love It!!!  It arrived on Friday and I’ve been in love ever since. It has all the bells and whistles, multi-touch screen, wireless mouse and keyboard, 2 TB hard drive, with 8GB of memory; it’s like one giant iPad if I want it to be; and I now feel like I am blogging in true style :-).  As my sister stated, it’s “A sexy bit of kit” what does that mean? well in Brit speak it means it’s a beautiful piece of machinery. It’s black, sexy and chic, like a classic Chanel dress! for more info visit www.shopping.hp.com/

I hope you had a fantastic weekend as I did, even while wilting.  Today I woke up to 72 degrees, though humid, it was a relief!  Let’s hope this cooler spell lasts for a while.

Wishing you all a fabulous, productive and amazing week.

Smooches Dahhlings!

Clutch To Me…

In New Loves! on March 2, 2012 at 11:30 am

 

Browsing through my favourite shopping site, Etsy, I  came across this darling little shop by the name of Quistt. Quistt sells a wonderful array of adorable clutch bags and small accessories.  The owner, Patricia Quist -Therson, a native of Ghana studied Architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.   However, her passion for fashion, moved her to design her own line of accessories.  You can see her African influence and architectural training shining through her designs.  I’m loving her wooden handled striped clutch which is in line with the bold print themes floating around this year. 

Wooden Handled Clutch - $50.00

Red Clutch - $40.00

Visit Patricia’s Etsy shop @ http://www.etsy.com/shop/Quistt?ref=seller_info I think you’ll love what you see.  

As a small business owner myself, I am all about supporting and promoting women-owned businesses.  Ladies, let’s get out there and support each other, we have no problem buying from our favourite high-end fashion stores; and there is nothing wrong with that, but take a look at what your small independently owned boutique has to offer, you’d be amazed at the quality workmanship you’ll find there.  Every Saturday is “Small Business Saturday” where you should go out and buy at least 1 item  from an independently owned business.  We need you.

Happy Friday Dahhlings!
