ten reasons to love pinterest

Hi, my name is Rachel, and I am a Pinterest addict!

I have been that way for some time now and I want to share with you the reasons why I love it so much. But, before you go any further, be warned: if you don't know it already, you may well get hooked.

Click on any image to look at one of my boards.

Relax, take 5 and look at pretty things
Relax, unwind and look at pretty things. In moments you can be in a stress-free heaven surrounded by the most beautiful sights the world has to offer.

It makes me happy
It is a world full of the most delicious eye candy with people sharing beautiful and interesting things in an interesting way.

A great organiser
It is a great way to organise information and ideas where they can be easily found. Instead of having files with magazine cutouts, with that 'I know it's in there somewhere' feeling, I can just go straight to the board I want in seconds. Everything is in one place. 

It's always there
Wherever I am and whichever device I have with me, I always have this world of ideas and loveliness at my fingertips. Also, I can't lose it as it is always 'backed up'. Now there's a bonus!

Wedding inspiration
Whatever your passion of the moment, and mine right now is weddings, you can find the best ideas the internet has offer. If you try and trawl through images elsewhere, you will have to crawl through slow-loading pages, full of adverts. No thank you!

Photography tips

This is a real biggie for me. It inspires me to keep trying to produce high quality images and presentation and gives me ideas on how to do that. I am constantly learning new things every time I go on it.

Style inspiration

Oh yes ..... I love that!........I have got to get one of those....... now they go together ...... I wouldn't have thought of that.

Home inspiration
Imagine having all the home design magazines of the world, all in one place; that's Pinterest. 

Easy to use
It is so simple that you will be 'pinning' like a professional in minutes. Each page only has on it what you need. Also, it keeps getting better with each update.

One good thing leads to another
It begins by finding one good pin you like, then you look who pinned it ...... finds other interesting pins .... follow where they came from ....... find something irrelevant but gorgeous .... and suddenly it's not 'take 5' any more.

Are you as addicted to Pinterest as much as I am? What do you like about it? What do you use it for? Have you found something really interesting or unusual?

reworking the wardrobe

I have Pinterest to thank for this outfit. I always keep a style inspiration board and collect outfit ideas as I go along. I love to remix items I already have in my wardrobe. I may not have the exact piece but I still might be able to put a similar outfit together. 

When I am having one of those days where I stare into the wardrobe and think 'I have nothing to wear', this is when I reach for my Ipad to find some inspiration. I like to layer in the winter so here I have on a t-shirt with a denim shirt and black jacket. I finished the outfit off with my old faithful jeans and a big scarf

Where do you look for inspiration?

Linking up with Logan at Southern Sunflowers & Coffee Beans, Patti at Not Dead Yet Style, Molly at still being molly and Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy.

Have a lovely day.
