I am a self confessed internet networking butterfly. I've done Bebo, Myspace, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Flickr, Blogspot (duh), Youtube, LookBook... even one called Fuzmo where you just post pictures of your pets.
and now, I have Pinterest.
For those of you who have no idea what pinterest is, you need to climb on out from under your rock and jump on board my new favourite website. Pinterest is basically a pin-board style photo sharing networky thing, where you can either post your own photos under certain tags, OR do as I do, and re-pin various pictures onto your own board.
My Pinterest addiction first hit just as all great things do, at about 3 in the morning when you can't sleep. I downloaded the app after hearing SprinkleOfGlitter rave endlessly about it. Skip to 5am and I am sitting upright in bed, googling a manor house in Oxford after seeing it on the 'Wedding' search whilst looking for pictures for one of my now 9 boards.
To most, Pinterest is a little bit of the life we want, the food we want, and the people we want to be... but have settled for stalking on the internet. I have to admit, I was one of those people who thought that too, and although there is definitely an element of that, after a few 5am nights spent on the app I must confess defeat. Who cares if I want to plan my future wedding before the age of 20? Who is really bothered if my Tattoos board is full of pictures I would never be brave enough to get? The reality is, sitting in my bed late at night looking at pictures of beautiful women in beautiful dresses in beautiful surroundings makes me happy.
And who knows, maybe in the far away future I will return to my teenage Wedding board and use it for inspiration, but at the moment I am content with stalking and stealing endless amounts of beauty and hair tips from others.
So if you don't have it, please let Pinterest take over your life.
Ciao for Now! x
