What’s So Good About Pinterest?

Hello Darlings, Once in a while a girl comes across certain things that make her everyday life more fun. My two most recent discoveries are florals and Pinterest, which may seem as completely different things, but one did influence the other. And with how fast people seem to be adopting Pinterest, I thought to add my 2 cents about why it’s making my everyday life more interesting.

New social media options are introduced seemingly every week. Let’s recap: Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Tumblr are the main ones that I am using (and already struggling to keep up with regular updates). Still, the latest addition to the mix is worth checking out, which is Pinterest.

Pinterest hit 11.7 million unique visitors in the US last month; most were women. Essentially, it allows you to create a scrapbook on the internet. You create a board on any topic you want, then just pin photos that inspire you on the board.  For instance, I have a board for my Spring/Summer To-Buy List, and another board for Inspiring Outifts. The layout makes it easy to organize all the photos you like in one place. And then, the “follow” feature is what makes Pinterest most addictive since you can follow different boards from people who interest you, so you can have a constant flow of creative ideas on topics that interest you.

Connecting the dots between Pinterest and florals — I have never been a big fan of florals. It is amazing how a few well pulled together outfits on Pinterest boards have inspired me to pull out this Rebecca Taylor dress!

Are you on Pinterest? If so, leave me your name so that I can follow. You can follow WithLoveGabrielle.com here!

With Love…

    Ha, I resisted Pinterest for as long as I could. I’m not one to jump on every social media platform’s bandwagon as I don’t like the idea of spreading myself too thin — but of course, I lost my willpower and joined! 😛 I’m already following you there as cathiemaud. 🙂

    I can’t get enough of Pinterest. At first, i just started saving all the pictures that inspired me on my computer – but then realized that with a Macbook Air, space is limited…so I signed up! I have yet to pin anything but I just started following you 🙂
    Awesome Rebecca Taylor dress – I just bought her bluebird dress off Revolve and hope that it fits like a glove like it does in the pictures!

    Oh god! No more profiles for me. I’m struggling to just keep up with my FB, Twitter, blogroll, and several email accounts.

    I resisted Pinterest for the longest time, but kept on seeing friends’ creations from ideas they got on this site, and decided that enough was enough. It has been two weeks since I joined, and I am completely addicted to it. I’m dmitchellgill if you’d like to follow.

      It’s a year since I wrote this, and thought to share it again since it’s so much better now that there is so many more images in their search!

      Will follow you Dee 🙂
