Why we're loving Pinterest right now
Sometimes you just don’t need words. And for us writers - who love to gush about the latest trends, products, looks and tips - making that statement goes against everything we’ve been taught. But even with our desire to put everything into words, we still know when to sit back, take our fingers off our keyboards, and let the pictures do the talking.
That’s why one of our latest social networking addictions is Pinterest. If you haven’t been on it yet, it’s a site that lets you share images and clips of all the cool things you love most (in the whole world) on virtual pinboards.
Think of it as a way to express your personality and your passions without having to worry about writing a status update that’s a) witty but not too smug, and b) not too offensive to any distant relatives you forgot were following your posts.
You can pin anything you like from around the web – from gorgeous clothing and jewellery to the hottest hair and make-up trends. And there are also some pretty spectacular shots people are posting on there for you to repin to your own boards.
At the moment, we’ve got several pinboards on the go, including beauty looks we want to copy, incredible nail art, the ultimate in hair inspiration, and our most recent one: the looks and products we’re lusting after this winter.
So, if you’re stuck in a make-up rut, or maybe you fancy adding some edgy new artwork to your nails, Pinterest could be a new place to take inspiration from.
