Ok, when I say interest it’s more like obsession, unhealthy and way too much time. I literally cannot go an hour without checking it and it’s so easy to do because there is always new stuff to look at.
If you are unaware of what Pinterest is, it’s basically an online pin board where people can ‘pin’ pictures, recipes, ideas, prints, anything you fancy. There are categories to flick through and there are literally millions of things to look at, hence the obsession.
I actually feel creative after looking through, when in reality I have sat scrolling through either on my computer or my phone and basically just gawped at other people’s creativity! I have all these photos saved from my daily crawls with which I have the best intention of recreating but the time never seems to come and instead I continue to look through and save more to dos. It’s a serious vicious cycle that I am determined to snap out of. I need Pinterest anonymous.
It’s also great for a morale boost, for example right now I am on a major healthy eating and exercise kick and there are so many (somewhat) cheesy quotes and images to help get you through. Cheesy as they may be, they help and it’s sort of reassuring to know there are others out there doing the exact same as you.
It’s also a great place to look into home made beauty treatments, there are always pins for homemade cleansers etc. There are also outfit posts and shoots galore, an endless moodboard of inspiration. Take a look, but be warned you may well become addicted too…
Below are a selection of things that have caught my eye in literally only the last 24 hours, I think it can say a lot for what mood you’re in, I definitely notice the types of pin I seem to be attracted to each time.
