I’ve decided to do a post every Friday called “Friday Favorites.” I have always loved the weekly posts that some of the blogs I follow do, and I’d like to try to do the same here. I thought that every Friday I would simply post something that I like and want to share. I’ll mainly focus on home decor and fashion, featuring items or trends that I love or that speak to me. And I’d love your opinion! Let me know what you’re interested in seeing, and please give me feedback on what you’ve liked or not liked.
This Friday I’m sharing with you my absolute and unadulterated love of Pinterest! Those of you who know me know that ever since I discovered it about 3 years ago, I have been in love. It is absolutely addicting! I love the simplicity of it, the beautiful and inspirational photos that make me want to do more crafts, travel, decorate, try a recipe, or be a better person. I told my husband that it reminds me of when I was in middle school and I had a bulletin board in my bedroom where I cut out pictures from fashion magazines and taped them all over the back of my door. This is that, and more. Need to search for a type of design to get ideas? Need to know how to style your hair a certain way? Looking for fashion outfit inspiration? Pinterest has all of this, and then some. And it’s wonderful for blogging, too. I can “pin” pictures from my blog there, and you can pin any of the pictures from my blog to your boards as well.
When you click on a pin you like, it takes you to the original page so it’s a great way to discover websites and blogs, too.
So to those of you who haven’t found Pinterest yet, I highly advise you to try it. You can save these wonderful pictures on your “boards” and you can reference back to them whenever you need them. I have used them to shop for something, try a new outfit, and most especially, help me when I was renovating. For someone like me who loves design so much, it is pure heaven! It’s the equivalent of having every design/home/shelter magazine ever produced at your fingertips!!
