The Obsidian Cuff By Stanmore… Fabulous!!!


Obsidian Cuff, ofakind, jewelry, One of a kind #jewelry #obsidiancuff

I just saw this beauty on Instagram, which was created by Stanmore NYC for one of my favourite stores, Of A Kind,and fell completely in LOVE.  This cuff is simply GORGEOUS!!! The other word I am looking for is FIERCE!  This truly is a beautiful and elegant piece of art.  The black obsidian stones—with their flecks of white and pounds of  chicness, will definitely spark a conversation.  I have…

Laura Mvula

As I was perusing Instagram, I noticed that one of my Instafriends, LoveMrs, posted a photo of her post work out song by a British singer named Laura Mvula.  I was immediately intrigued, mostly because of the photograph and her hair.

After a little research I found out that this young lady has been around for a little while, and was also nominated for two Brit Awards, where have I been??  Ms.…

Since my last post, one of my all time favourite blogs, Daily Candy closed it’s doors for the last time on April 4.  I can’t believe it’s been fourteen years.  I remember the day they started, every fashionista worth her salt in New York, made sure she received her…

A Blissfully Blessed Weekend…

A Blissfully Blessed Weekend…

Happy Sunday Darlings! Well today it’s a cold 43 degrees on this 4th day of spring.  Yesterday, we got to a whopping 67 degrees in Washington DC, and I must say quite a few people felt the need to take all their clothes off.  Not me!!! I was dressed in lovable layers.

Until I see a constant 75 degrees, I’m not removing too much.  This was me yesterday, browsing in Marshall’s, who had one of the…

On what is hopefully the very last snow day of 2014, I just found out that L’wren Scott was found dead of an apparent suicide.  I always wonder what is going on in someone’s life, which could cause them to decide this is the only way out.  My heart goes out. We are all interconnected with each other via social media, i.e., Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, etc., and most of us think everyone…

Lupita Nyong'o, Essence Magazine, #lupitanyongo, #essencemagazine, Maylana's Chronicles, Maylana's Closet #maylanascloset

Oscar Nominee Lupita Nyong’o has taken Hollywood by storm and in my opinion by complete surprise.  Lupita is either gracing a magazine cover, complete with beautiful layouts, adorning gorgeous designer dresses.  She is winning every award, and deservedly so.  This Yale educated, beautiful and talented actress, is doing for black women, what Alek Wek did back in the early 90′s.  It is beautiful…

Embrace Your Body

And every single day, no matter how full or slim your body is. No matter how many so-called flaws and blemishes, embrace them all.  Embrace every single curve (or non curve), embrace and love every single part of you, because YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE UNIQUE!

Being healthy is more important than what society claims beautiful to be.  Eat well, Exercise well,  Sleep well, Be well.
