In honour of National Lipstick Day 2014, I had to post one of my absolute favourites, which I have posted here before. I absolutely love Tom Ford’s Cherry Lush, which is my all time favourite red to wear, when I’m in the mood.
Another favourite colour of mine is Laura Mercier’s Dusk, which just this second, I’ve found out has been discontinued!! I’ve found it on Fragrance.net (click link above). I must have it! Dusk was the perfect pink, with a mauve hue, when you just needed a little something. I normally layer this colour with Touch (above) by MAC which is also one of my go to nudes.
Whatever colour you decide to wear, pucker up, wear it confidently, and be the amazing Sylista you truly are.

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.
Love ♥ Light ♥ Passion

While going through my Instagram feed, I discovered the lovely boutique Shoxie! When I saw this wrap maxi dress I was completely bowled over. At $125.00, I think it’s a steal in order to look gorgeous, for the upcoming summer affairs, where you want to look simple, yet elegant, and very nicely put together, without too much fuss. I’ve got my eye on either of the black and white striped dresses myself, or maybe the coral… decisions, decisions.
How would I wear? Sky high wedges and a neon clutch (post coming soon); topped off with my Tom Ford red lipstick in Cherry Lush, and I’m good to go 🙂
Make your way to their lovely online boutique here or click on the dresses above to be taken right to them!
In Daily Musings, Object's of Desire on November 26, 2012 at 2:53 pm
I haven’t written an Objects Of Desire post in a little while, but here’s one that caught my attention a few days ago. Mr. Tom Ford has released a complete set of his beautiful nail lacquers exclusively for Neiman Marcus priced at $480.00!
This exclusive 16 colour set has every possible shade you would ever need to carry your chic wardrobe from now to next spring/summer to enhance your chic wardrobe. Tom Ford nail lacquers retail for approximately $30 dollars each; why would you buy a $30 nail lacquer? Because you’re absolutely worth it! Again this is an Object of Desire, so maybe Santa will leave this under the tree for you, if you’ve been good this year.
Visit Neiman Marcus here
Well today is back to work Monday, after our long 4 day weekend. This is the real countdown to Christmas; how is your gift buying going? Have you started? Are you going to wait until christmas eve; or are you just buying a little something for you?
Have yourselves a Positive, Productive and Exhilarating week!

For these exquisite Tom Ford sandals! What more can I really say about these, other to drool over 5″ of beautiful heel! I’ll just let them speak for themselves, while I obsess over the purple ones above. From Mr. Ford’s S/S 2012 collection, the only thing to ask yourself is which pair? Remember they’re going to cost you a month’s rent, so choose wisely! 🙂
Available at Tom Ford – 845 Madison Avenue (near 70th Street), New York, NY 10021
Happy Friday Dahhlings! Have a fabulous, blessed and glorious weekend!!

Yeah, it's Monday!!
Before I begin, I want to give a big London shout out to my mum, sister and mum Joyce, and the other UK mums I know, for having a fabulous UK Mother’s Day yesterday, Love ya!
Well it’s Monday again. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend like I did. I spent yesterday in DuPont Circle having brunch at FrontPage which was just OK to begin with, then I found out later that they charged my credit card 3 times, so on top of the so so brunch and weak mimosa, I’m now out an extra $100!!!!! They’re supposed to correct the situation today so we’ll see. Do I need to make a phone call to my contact at the Washington Post??? There has been an issue of credit card fraud at restaurants. I would be the wrong person to go down that road with. I did not discover this until my dining partner called me later on to alert me after checking her own card. FrontPage received an extra $200 between the 2 of us. Anyway… I digress. After a cloudy and chilly start, yesterday turned out to be a really gorgeous day. My friend and I popped into a few really cute stores. I will feature items and/or stores in upcoming posts this week.
Here’s a sign which tickled me as we were walking along…
I bought my Tom Ford lipstick on Friday. I’ve never spent $48 on a lipstick , but I am well worth it! With the embossed TF it makes me not even want to use it. Maybe I’ll put it on display in my china cabinet with my collection of teapots. This will be the only thing I can afford from Mr. Ford, therefore, I’ll make it last!!
Colour - Cherry Lush
Wishing you all a fabulous, glorious and blessed week!
And remember ladies…
See you later Dahhlings!!

Here are my favourites from last night’s awards…. Enjoy!
Octavia Spencer Winner for "Best supporting actress" wearing Tadashi Shoji
Viola Davis "Best Actress Nominee" in Vera Wang - The red hair and green dress was just gorgeous on her!
This was the dress that did it for me!! Gwyneth Paltrow in Mr. Tom Ford
Ms. Esperanza Spalding's beautiful voice singing "What A Wonderful World" was truly breathtaking. Very talented young lady. The dress she wore on stage was so much nicer, still trying to find pic. Will post if I find it.
UPDATE! - Cannot find full length version of this, but it was a truly beautiful dress. Loving her statement ring!
This is my man right here! I don't know who he was wearing, but he was working it. - FYI: He helped score the telecast
Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli Couture - This pic does not really do the dress justice, but in my opinion, it was simply stunning
Roony Mara in Givenchy
Sandra's Marchesa dress hit the worst dress list, people on Twitter were evil. I loved this dress. When she walked on stage and you saw the scooped back, I thought it was gorgeous. Not every gown has to show breasts and thighs to be considered Oscar worthy.

This beautiful card my sister sent to me, congratulating me on starting my blog:
From the Fabulous Al, Thanks Luv! Yes we ONLY drink Champagne!
These fabulous Shades:
I think these are going to be my new summer shades, put the Pradas to rest for a while. Very 70's retro.
Yesterday, I treated myself to a new Mac Lipstick, called MAC Red, I’m into movie star reds right now and loving this one. I’m using it with MAC lipliner in Brick. Retiring Ruby Woo for a minute. I’ll take a pic soon and let you see what it looks like. It’s fabulous Dahhlings!
Such a fabulous colour!! Beware! Red lipstick is not for the faint of heart!!! Only the confident need apply!
This is going to be my next red lipstick, oh yes it is!!!
Tom Ford Lipstick in Cherry Lush - $45
The new Chloe fragrance – L’Eau De Chloe
I quite like this. A perfect Spring fragrance - Made with 22 percent natural rose water. This could become a classic.
