favorite things: pinterest

Hello friends!

Today I was's been a while since I've done a favorite things post, so here I am to remedy that!

One of my new favorite things is a nifty website called Pinterest. I've had an account on Pinterest for several months now, but only just recently started using it more regularly.

You may already be an avid user of this nifty site...but if not, you might be asking, "What is Pinterest?" Well then, I will's basically a virtual pinboard where you pin images from around the web to collect inspiration for a variety of categories. I have several pinboards (and they just keep multiplying) including fashion, hair, for the home, and quotes. It's really neat to look back and see the things you've pinned to your boards. It's a good way to feel inspired and get a better sense for your personal style.

You can also follow other people's boards to be inspired by the style of others. It's a lot of fun!

One thing I really like and appreciate about Pinterest is that it keeps track of the link and source of where you pinned your image from. For example, if you pin a dress from Anthropologie that you really can later go back and look at that original listing and purchase it at a later date. It's like a visual bookmarking tool.

If you want, you can follow my boards at

Do you use Pinterest? If yes (or if you go create an account right now), feel free to leave a link to your board in the comments. I'd love to see what things you're pinning! :)

Lots of Love,
