This post is really late!!  Its been a hectic day, I’m trying to get things off my desk, which seem to be multiplying by the thousands, and at the same time, getting ready to attend a big event tomorrow, which I’ll tell you all about over the weekend, and/or Monday.  Guess which one? All I’ll say is, it’s in New Jersey, all over social media, and will air on Nov. 3, what bigger hint can I give?

Well it’s Fabulous Friday Darlings, the weekend is finally here, and Thank God We’re Fabulous!  It’s gotten really chilly here in DC, and it looks like the golden days of our Indian summer are finally behind us, until next spring.

Have yourselves a totally fabulous, and chic weekend, I’m going to leave with the song I’m listening to right now – Music of Life by Cerrone {I may have already posted this song, many blog posts ago), This song reminds me so much of my home town of London…

Enjoy the music of life, because life is a song worth sing!

Blissful Blessings

Hi Darlings! This was originally written as yesterday’s post, but we had to celebrate Ms. Celia Cruz’s birthday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend, I know I did.  I got so much done, I feel the weekend went by a little too quickly!  Give thanks for this glorious new week, because it signifies new beginnings; which brings you one step closer to fulfilling all of your dreams, and accomplishing your goals.

On a different note, did anyone see the TLC movie last night? I didn’t as I did not get in until very late.  I have heard, through friends, and social media, that it was a pretty good docudrama {though there were also the usual criticisms}, which stayed true to the essence of TLC’s biography.  I’ll have to try to catch it on Video on Demand.  What are your thoughts on the movie?

Enjoy your week, stay fabulous, stay chic, and remember…

Loving life in Sepia #maylanascloset #style #chic

Wow!!! I’ve been gone a long time!! (Since June to be exact) but I am back feeling wonderful and truly full of life. This blissful, spiritual, and constantly learning journey I’m on, has been truly amazing, taking the hard lowball hits with the wonderful euphoric highs; I’m glad to be back!!! New Name, New Attitude, New Me! 

 New Name   

I’ve decided to rename my blog “Maylana’s Chronicles“, which will be more in line with the direction my blog is going in.  Maylana’s Closet will strictly be my boutique where you’ll continue to find beautiful vintage and new items, crochet accessories, and all things beautiful.  Watch out for fabulous new items, showcasing soon! Maylana’s Closet will also remain the name of my Facebook , Twitter and Tumblr pages.

Self Hosting

To take my blog to the next level self hosting is necessary, and coming very soon, so there will be a new blog layout.  I’m really excited about the new look and feel of my online magazine.  I will continue to bring you my interpretation of timeless style, beautiful clothing/accessories, beauty, cool gadgets, great stories, positive affirmations, and a beautiful ray of chic sunshine to bring a sparkle to your day. I truly wanted to start over with the new theme, but there are so many beautiful ones out there, and it was taking too long for me to make a final choice; so watch out for layout change soon.

I will continue to use the url www.maylanascloset.com until the final migration.  For those of you looking for a self hosting platform, my research has shown Blue Host to be one of the best, and is also highly recommended by WordPress.

Thank You 

Thanks to all of you who continued to read my blog; read all my older entries from the archives; sent words of encouragement, and truly supported me.  Many thanks to my new followers, who started discovered and started following when I was not blogging on a regular basis {there were quite a few of you); and thanks to those of you who recently recommended my blog to your inner circles and sent out lots of tweets promoting my blog to your own followers, which in turn caused my blog to grow even more… LOVE YOU♥♥  I was really worried about being gone for so long, but due to the fantastic support I was blessed with, I had no need.  I’m honored to be part of the blogging community.

Maylana’s New Anthem

I’m going to leave you with my new anthem… Katy Perry’s Roar! Listen to the words, watch the video carefully, get the message. This song spoke to me, from the moment I heard it, this song is me. Truly an anthem for those of us, moving forward, 4″ heels and all!

Hi Darlings! Yes I know I said I’d return in September, but my goodness it was a truly busy, yet wonderful month for me.  Can you believe September is over!

Here’s another from the Archives, honouring International Woman’s day.  Every day is our day, because as women we must  always keep calm {and beautiful} while running the world. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, therefore the soft relaunch of this blog is yet to happen, but there’s still 2 weeks left in September {time is going by way too fast}.  I promise to be back before  the end of  the month

To all my sisters all over the world, Happy International Women’s Day!

We are the support system of society; the entire world comes through us.  Remember we are Influential, Powerful and Beautiful Queens, who can multi task at a moment’s notice, some of you, all day long with kid(s) in tow, while running a business, going to school and/or working a full-time job.

You are Extraordinary!  Wield all of your magnificent power in your 4″ heels and your flats, fabulously!

In honour of yourself, do something special with YOUR Day!

Hi Darlings! Here’s another one from the archives.  I thought it was appropriate to post this particular article as it was written on a Thursday back in May.  Who doesn’t love a good healthy smoothie?

Original Post

Happy Thursday Darlings  As you may know, I’m on a major health kick, so I thought I’d let you know what’s in today’s smoothie cocktail.  Here goes…
  • 1 Handful Kale
  • 1 Handful Spinach
  • 1/2 Apple
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 1 Tablespoon Flaxseed
  • 1 Handful Strawberries
  • 1/2 cup spring water

Blend, pour into a martini glass, and sip daintily, like the healthy, and chic Sylista you are.

Be Creative, Be Inspired, Be Amazing!

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

Vintage Military Jacket - Hand Embroidered

Hello darlings! I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Mine was absolutely gorgeous, fantastic weather, scoops of ice cream, with lots of sun.  Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the Capital Jazz Fest, but I used the time wisely by getting a lot of projects completed, that really did need my immediate attention.

One of the projects I finally completed, was to list this gorgeous hand embroidered military jacket, painstakingly hand sewn by the wonderful Ms. Althea Anderson in London.  You may remember Ms. Anderson, who wrote the wonderful guest blog post: “A Floetic Night With Floetry” click here to read her superb account of what must have been a beautiful and enchanting night.  As you can see, she is a woman with many talents!

You can find this unique and one of a kind jacket in the Maylana’s Closet Etsy boutique. Shop Here  The jacket will also be available in the “Blog Shop” within the next few days.

Wishing you a Fabulous and Productive week!

Boss Friday…

Boss

Hi Darlings, Happy Friday!  This week has seemed exceptionally long to me, but I think it’s because of the short week last week, which also seemed long.

This quote really inspired me today, and as I quoted on my Facebook page,”My crown is straightened! It’s Boss Friday!” because this is how I truly feel today.   I hope your gorgeous crown is  straightened too, stand tall Darlings.

Today is a bit of a dreary day, with lots of rain, due to the hurricane coming up from down south, but it’s needed, so no complaints here.  Below is my 2nd creation, using my Bazaart app, I need to start naming my pieces, just in case they make me famous. 🙂

I’d love to wish you a Fabulous and Beautiful weekend, get lots done, and make whatever you do count!
