sunday marks the first official day of fall. as of lately, i’ve been really trying to revamp my whole wardrobe. i’m 25 now and i don’t know.. something about this age makes me finally want to start working on my personal style. i’m a tomboy all day but there are some days when i want to dress up and be more of a girly girl. i’m using this year to start evolving my whole fashion style. aside from bags, i’ve never really browsed any clothing that’s on i figure if i’m always seeing cool furniture and products i love, why not look for some cool things i could rock for the fall.

1. julep working women set, $25 2. corner store thank you shopper, $179 — i think this is too cute. i absolutely need this. 3. petra necklace, smoky quartz, $60 4. leather mini skirt, $72 5. dolce vita hymore dress, coral, $145 6. wizard print leopard watch, $74.95 7. enzo tote cognac, $89 8. infinity scarf dance party, $26 9. golden owl ring, $77 10. polite as fuck tee, men’s gray, $22 — i love getting men shirts in smalls.

tweak your biz title generator |

a while back i had discovered a content idea generator that provided fun, catchy headline suggestions for blog post. although it’s a pretty cool site, i could never use some of the headline ideas it generated. they were fun, just not useable. at least not for me. my boss recently introduced me to tweak your biz title generator and i absolutely had to share.

unlike the content idea generator, the tweak your biz title generator displays a variety of possible titles to use based on the keywords you enter. what i like most about it is it offers use tons of title suggestions within categories such as list, best of, how to, secrets and questions. definitely bookmark this site. i guarantee it’s something you’ll be using quite often. i know i will.

these last few weeks have been hectic for me. tomorrow my job celebrate it’s 20th anniversary so i’ve been busy designing all materials for that and just making sure things have been flowing smoothly. not to mention, i’ve still had to tackle freelance client work once i get home. it was just a lot. all that resulted in me not wanting to look at a computer or a blog for the last few days.. so i didn’t. today, i finally got made a little time to browse the web and look for some inspiration.

i stumbled across this wonderful contemporary house in village of comporta, portugal and had to share. i’m absolutely loving the ‘electric cocktail’ of design going on within the house. i don’t think a person could live here and ever be sad as the colors and view can definitely brighten and lift one’s spirit. what i absolutely love about this interior is the way the bright splashes of color play against the white backdrop and the mix of new and vintage furniture throughout the place. not to mention the surrounding estate offers a spectacular swimming pool, gardens and stone steps that leads up to an elevated and secluded porch. oh and how i could forget as a sucker of large prints, i’m loving the palm tree print. i wouldn’t mind that chilling in my living room. so once again future house, please.. take note.
