Testing image title attributes for best performance and display on Pinterest is a great way to get started with building your Passive Pinterest blog. This page is a test and development project for ideal Pinterest text attributes. I’ll update throughout testing, so that you can follow along. Welcome to the Blog, you’ll find other SEOContinue reading “Getting Started with Pinterest”

Desktop Organization

It had never once occurred to me to “organize” my desktop. Sure, I purge every now and again, search, find, and lose – but never have I really organized this space that I use every day, all day long.  I just hadn’t put much thought into it.  Until I came across Iheartplanners, a blog dedicatedContinue reading “Desktop Organization”

Dear Gentlemen, it’s too bad about this whole feminism thing

I stumbled upon a sad little blog the other day full of angry little trolls huffing and puffing that white men had become the marginalized minority, discriminated against, marginalized, and silenced. Between the venomous lines of hate, I read quite loudly the longing these men shared to return to the “good old days” of masculineContinue reading “Dear Gentlemen, it’s too bad about this whole feminism thing”

Into Everyone’s Life A Little Motivation Will Fall

Six hours I have six hours until I need to be on a flight to the UK, followed by three days “on”, a day to fly home, two days of laundry, groceries, and prep then four days in Chicago, five days in Rome, and one week home. Then it’s on to one week in NewContinue reading “Into Everyone’s Life A Little Motivation Will Fall”

One Year in Review

The LaBelleValise blog is now one year old.  This blog started as a travel log on all the places work, life, and wanderlust takes me and over the past year the adventure has been better than I hoped. Here are a few of the highlights Istanbul, Turkey Chester, UK Chicago, Illinois New York, New YorkContinue reading “One Year in Review”

My 30 Day Adventure: Prologue

My 30 Day Adventure, as I’ve taken to calling it, has now ended, with an extra 10 pounds, three new passport stamps, and so many emails and unpacked bags awaiting me I wish I could start the trip again just to get away from it all! That said, when I think back on where IContinue reading “My 30 Day Adventure: Prologue”

Avoiding the Office Urinal Cake … and other career tips

Once upon a time I worked as a Barista at a ski resort alongside a rowdy snowboarder crowd. My colleagues enjoyed the odd Friday afternoon adult beverage, and although I was not of legal drinking age, they’d occasionally invite me to join them. Now, I’m not one to shy away from a margarita, but shootingContinue reading “Avoiding the Office Urinal Cake … and other career tips”

Bending Over Backward

Every once in a while I really manage to piss someone off.  Not just kinda, we’re talking nuclear grade, maximum emotional-button-pushing, pissed off. I managed to do that this week to a level that resulted in someone almost walking away from a multi-million dollar deal. My offense? I said I was “bending over backward” toContinue reading “Bending Over Backward”

The Umbrella of Arrogance

I’ve started a dozen posts, then stopped them, because I don’t want to share those thoughts. I’ve posted a dozen photos, then deleted them again, self-consciousness eventually overwhelms every endeavor. I used to write, until my writing became too much of a tool that could be used to judge, or potentially judge (perhaps only inContinue reading “The Umbrella of Arrogance”

Ballin’

Last week was definitely one for my adventure log, unfortunately it was also accompanied by context which makes it all sound far less exciting.  But first… Friday morning, last, I awoke at 6:00 am, showered, shaved, and shampoed, grabbed my trusty green carry on, my white patent leather Ted Baker tote, and a go-cup ofContinue reading “Ballin’”
