The Art of Pinning

Hola, everyone. Happy Monday! I hope you guys got more sleep than me this weekend! Between studying for Spanish, reading for bio, and pinning, I was up all night! Yes, that's right.. I said pinning. I had gotten Pinterest a while back, but it kept giving me errors every time I tried uploading a picture and it was so frustrating. I had forgotten about it until a friend brought it up the other day, so I decided to give it another try. Turns out, its my new greatest form of procrastination. I guess the Pinterest team re-worked a couple of things, because I love it now.

For any of you that don't exactly know what Pinterest is, I'll tell ya.
You're completely in charge of your profile. You make 'boards' that have different categories (Ex: food, style, home decor, etc.). You can follow your friends that have Pinterest, or just look through pictures owned by the world wide web of pinners. What's the point? It allows you to exchange quotes or ideas, find inspiration, and learn recipes and cute DIY's. It really is fun, I promise. :)

Just to give you an example, I'll show a sample of mine. I have nine boards, but here's a couple pictures from my favorite five:

1. Sweet Nothings

2. Style
neutrals

3. Yummies
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Blackberry Lemonade

4. DIY/how-to

5. Home

Even though the pictures are awesome, this blog still doesn't do it justice. To check out the real deal, click here or on the link in the left column and follow me!
