Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning – Gloria Steinem
Ok, so it’s taken me a little while to learn the ropes of Pinterest and there’s no denying the fact I still don’t know exactly what I’m doing, shameful I know. Nevertheless, I’ve found myself constantly opening up the app and scrolling through the never ending inspiration and pinning until my heart’s content. Today I thought I would share my love for this search engine and a peek into some of my favorite pins from my boards.
I’ve always had a huge love for interior design, name a home or some sort of interior design based TV show and I’ve watched every episode. Sometimes I wish I had gone down the interior design route opposed to my current Uni course, but I guess we’ll just see where life takes me. But for now, I am lusting away over the dozens of interior inspiration photos on Pinterest. I love feature walls with framed photos, opposed to wallpaper as I think they’re so much more eye catching and a lot more personal. As you can see from this snippet of my board, I’m digging minimalistic colour schemes. Grey and pink are on trend at the moment and I’m loving it. I’m also loving the pop of colours added by velvet sofas as it looks so chic. Here’s to hoping that one day I’ll get to design my own house where I’ll have a walk in wardrobe and cinema room like these.
Words To Live By
Sass, sarcasm, and inspiration. Probably, my favorite board, I’ve created so far. I adore cute witty quotes and I love scrolling through my board when I need a pick me up. I really want to frame some of these for a cute picture wall as I find them really uplifting.
Lust Lust Lust. If you’re on Pinterest then you are bound to know of the belt that makes every outfit x10 better, aka the Gucci belt. If there’s one accessory I could have in my wardrobe right now, it’s this. I’m also loving the colour mustard at the minute as well as the layering of necklaces.
Mary Berry In Training
Que the sweet tooth. This board does not do my diet any good but, I will continue to pin and attempt to make these treats and gain the calories anyway. Who doesn’t love Mary Berry and all her delicious recipes? Despite the controversy, i’m buzzing for the GBOB to be back on our TV screens next week! I’ve found myself constantly scrolling through amazing recipes that people have shared online via Pinterest and I can’t wait to attempt to make some of these!
A reoccurring theme of shimmer, glitter, shimmer, glitter. If you’ve read some of my other blog posts, you will know my love for eyeshadow. I have a dozen palettes but that doesn’t stop me from convincing myself that I need more. I love love love these eye looks! I always stick to browns and golds as I’m more comfortable with these but I really want to try attempting some of these colour looks. My favorite is the 2nd from the top as I think the blue is absolutely stunning and so different to anything I’ve actually seen before! If only I could have a makeup artist do my makeup every day.
Ok, so we can definitely see a re-reoccurring theme with this one. Braids for days. When it comes to my own hair, I hate it, it’s limp and thin which means I never end up doing anything to it. Literally, I have three looks; straight, curly, or a homeless pony tail for when I’m lounging around. I know some people really struggle and can’t get the hang of braids but I actually find them so easy to do on other people’s hair, sadly just not my own.
Hopefully, soon I will get the hang of Pinterest a little better, but in the meantime, I will enjoy pinning pretty things and not knowing what I’m doing. If you have any tips or cute boards for me to follow then feel free to let me know as I’d love to check them out!
