Valentine's Day, #valentinesday, Love, #Love #maylanascloset #maylanaschronicles

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my Style Mavens, and especially to all my single ladies, who may feel a little left out and alone today.  Never ever let this day make you feel any less than you are or like you’re missing something, because you’re not.  You are Whole, Beautiful, Fabulous, Creative and Talented.

For all you single ladies, here’s your anthem “I’m Every Woman” by Chaka Khan

Love and Kisses to you all… SmoochesValentine's Day, #valentinesday, Love, #Love #maylanascloset #maylanaschronicles

Hello Darlings! So good old Valentine’s Day is upon us again, and even though it may be too late to order a gift for yourself or significant other to arrive tomorrow, you can still purchase these lovely paper weights from Mark and Graham.  I love this store, you can buy the most lovely paper, monogrammed stationery, and desk accessories, as well as some really beautiful leather items. I love anything paper or any item that’s going to make my home office look elegant.  I think these fit the bill.

And ladies, if you’re single on Valentine’s Day, treat yourselves to one of these, and place it in prime position on your desk, as a reminder to always LOVE YOU FIRST♥

Here is one of my favourite poems from Nikki Giovanni’s book “Love Poems” which I’ve owned for years, and always love reading from time to time.  Have a fabulously blessed Valentine’s Day Darlings… Mwah

Love Is

Some people forget that love is 
tucking you in and kissing you 
“Good night” 
no matter how young or old you are

Some people don’t remember that 
love is 
listening and laughing and asking 
no matter what your age

Few recognize that love is 
commitment, responsibility 
no fun at all 

Love is 
You and me 

Wear Red Day

Love Always…

Valentine's Day

The ubiquitous allocated day of “Love” is upon us once again. Whether you believe it’s one of the most commercialized holidays, selling flowers and gourmet chocolates at over inflated premium prices, or you’re a die hard romantic, who truly believes in “Valentine’s Day” either way, there is no way to miss it.

Whether you have a significant other or not, enjoy the day, but more importantly, LOVE yourself!  Today, celebrate how much YOU’VE grown over the past year, LOVE YOURSELF for that.  Celebrate how much YOU’VE accomplished, love yourself for that too.

Even if you do have a significant other to bring you flowers, go out and buy yourself a bunch just because you love you too.  If not flowers, treat yourself to something, it can be as small or as large as you like. I know Valentine’s day is supposed to be about romance, but why not romance yourself? You deserve it.

Valentine's Day

Go to Starbucks and buy yourself that Venti Caramel Macchiato with extra caramel. instead of your usual grande with skimmed milk. Go to Godiva and buy yourself the box of treats which contains 4 of their best-selling chocolates, and sit and eat them all at once, or even better, buy yourself 2 of their huge chocolate covered strawberries and eat them at once too.

My point is, Treat Yourself, Love Yourself, make Valentines Day whatever you’d like it to be, and if you choose to ignore Valentines Day altogether, you can sit in front of your TV wearing whatever you like, and watch a few reruns of NCIS or Castle {USA and TNT respectively}… Hey, that’s just fine too!  Just pour yourself a glass of wine, while you’re at it!

A Diva’s Valentine Theme…

In Daily Musings on February 14, 2012 at 9:39 am

I dedicate to all of you single Divas out there, this Valentine’s Day as the official Treat Your Inner Diva Day. whether it’s a mani/pedi, new lingerie, a gorgeous scented candle, a bottle of bubbly or all of the above, celebrate YOU! Don’t let the commercialization of this “pretend” holiday, make you feel less than you are.  Today is a day where some women, may feel a little down because they don’t have anyone “special” in their lives or are looking to someone to make them feel special today and then start an argument when they don’t deliver. DON’T!

Don’t wait for someone else to make you feel worthy, make yourself feel special because you are!  You’re A Diva!  Leave your office/cubicle right now, go to Starbucks and buy that Venti White Chocolate Latte, you never buy because you’re on a never-ending diet, trust me you’ll feel good! 

Celebrate your fabulousness, celebrate YOU!  Buy yourself some flowers (although exorbitantly overpriced), better yet buy them tomorrow where they’ll be back to normal prices and everyone one is kicking themselves for buying  a dozen roses for $100 and you only paid $25 at Whole Foods (plus theirs would have started wilting)!  Take a bath, add something nice to it, put on your high heels and something floaty, pour a glass of bubbly, order some take-out, then cue the music (I’m feeling Bruno Mars right now, don’t play anything too sentimental, depression is not the goal here, how about “I’m Every Woman” by Chaka Khan?).  Perch yourself delicately on your sofa, cross your legs and be fabulous in your own living room.  Celebrate the Wonderful, Gorgeous ,God Given YOU!

If you have some girlfriends who are also unattached, get a group together and go and have a cocktail somewhere, make as much noise as possible to interrupt the so-called smoochy lovers (I do not usually advocate being loud, but hey it’s Valentines day, just don’t blame me if you get thrown out!).  Whatever you do, DO NOT sit around feeling sorry for yourself, it’s a commercial holiday, get over it.  The special person in your life is YOU!  And if you do have someone significant, cherish that person every single day, not just today, because you want a gift and a nice meal, so you can brag about it tomorrow.  Make every day  in your relationship a beautiful day, make every day about Love.

Here’s something cute from Google

Dahhlings… Always Remember, You Are Special!

Here’s a recipe for one of my favourite cocktails, called a  Kir Royale  – a cocktail fit for a Queen… Enjoy!

Champagne * Chambord Liqueur (or if your strapped for cash try Mr. Boston Raspberry liqueur, $6) *  Raspberries, Champagne Flute

Place a Champagne flute in the freezer for 15 minutes. Remove and add 1 tablespoon Chambord to each flute and a few raspberries. Fill each flute to the top with Champagne and serve immediately – Cheers!

Happy Valentines day!
