Pins of Wisdom

Either you are totally obsessed with Pinterest or you are sick of hearing about it.  I think it’s kind of polarizing, you know, like cilantro.

I happen to be loving on it (speaking of, follow me so I can follow you!) because there is just such a  diversity of stimulus out there:  recipes! gorgeous photos! fashion inspiration! home decor ideas!  I mean you name it, and someone has pinned it. I love the fact that it is such a visual medium: I can just stare at awesome things and then every once in a while click, and it’s tagged in an online bookmarking system FOREVER. Victory.

One of the boards I made for myself is Words of Wisdom (or maybe that board came pre-assigned and I added to it, who knows?) but I have thoroughly enjoyed adding to it and here are a few favorites:

What is not to love about that kind of internet time suck, right?

I also enjoy the fact that the more stuff you pin the more your own personal style becomes super obvious. I started pinning home decor ideas that I enjoyed because I feel like I have NO SENSE OF STYLE when it comes to decorating, but when you look at the board — HELLO color trends! Obviously I do have a style that I’m attracted too.

Plus now I have a place to put all the haircuts I am too scared to try in real life. And of course, a very easy way to show Garrett the kind of engagement rings I think about…you know, in my dreams! (Yeah, you can bet I sent him the link to that board. haha!)

Anyway, since it’s Thursday I thought we all might need a little inspiration to get us through until Friday.

    I love Pinterest! I think I’m following you now (I’m still getting used to how everything works). I love this kind of time suck, and like you I’m beginning to see what I actually like – it’s really helpful in ways I didn’t expect!

    As I am sure you can tell, I love Pinterest. This weekend I am trying a recipe and getting started with Fei on that photo project. Where else can you grab such great ideas and keep them or toss them as you see fit? As a business model, I am fascinated with the simplicity of the concept, and I am excited to see where they take it. I started pinning fashion and I thought- this is bad news, but really its not. When I browse downtown, I think things like “do I love this more than my Pinterest boots?” and if the answer is no, I put it back. All your favorites in one place, like your own personal magazine. Delightful!

      That is EXACTLY why I love it — simplicity and efficiency. Sidenote: HOW DO YOU NOT SPEND ALL! THE! MONEY! shopping downtown? If I was that close to that good of shopping, I may do it everyday. Arden Fair ain’t cuttin it. 😉

    Hey, so funny. I linked to you via a Twitter comment about you having good recipe ideas to share and lo and behold we’re in the same town. I love finding local folks on the big wide internet (especially via east coast twitter links :) Anyway, hi, nice to “meet” you and I’ll definitely follow on Pinterest. Do you follow fellow local gal Amy Cluck on Pinterest? I like her words to live by category.





What I’m Pinning

  • Delicious tender chicken meatballs, smothered in sauce and cheese, and baked until bubbly hot. This new twist on an Italian classic is easy to make and will quickly become a family favorite! I prepare a lot of recipes. Many make it to the blog, some make it to the garbage, and some find a special …
  • Tortoiseshell Balayage Lob | Say farewell to foils—forever. Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow. (The early 2000s called, and they want those platinum blonde
  • I love this cut! Edgy messy bob...great color.

  • This low carb quick bite is an easy Keto Snack which is tasty and quick to make. Paleo, and gluten free.
