Well hello everyone! Today I have the privilege of being a part of the the PinItForwardUK campaign.
I was lucky enough to be asked to be a part of this campaign which has included myself in the 300 top bloggers in the UK.
An honour to say the least. The network of pinners worldwide is immense, so thank you Pinterest for including me in your list of influential bloggers.
What is Pinterst you ask? I'm sure you have at least heard about it in passing...and if not, then below will inform you on the main things you need to know.
Basically Pinterest is an online platform that allows people to collect and images that inspire!
Pinterest allows everyone to collect and create boards (moodboards) of things they're interested in. It can quite literally be anything. The sky is the limit in regards to what you post and want to repin.
There are so many ways you can pin.
*grab and pin website
*find an image you love
*pin from your phone!
(my favourite at the moment!) download the app, stick it on your phone and never get caught out without a pen. The note, website, image is forever in your Pinterest!
I have only been with Pinterest for just over a year, but in that year, the amount I have collected is immense. I have gained so much useful information and knowledge from what others have posted. What's even better is that people have learned and pinned from me.
What's brilliant is the knowledge you gain or pin is never lost. It is all there, on the board you created for it, to go back to as a reference.
I am a very visual person and through Pinterest I have been able to grow in various ways through the images people have openly shared with the world.
I've created visual boards that excite and inspire me.
Below are some of my boards, so you can see just what I mean.
At the moment I have 17 boards. It may seem like a lot, but these boards hold the key to all the little things I love, want to try, want to travel to, want to cook, want to create and the list goes on.
It's my own little visual notepad. One that I can never forget, misplace or accidentally erase. It's all there for me to grab and for others to grab from!
The board that means the most to me and has the most repins and followers out of all of my boards is my MAKEUP and HAIR VIDEOS board.
I created this board because I wanted to inspire people the way they have inspired me.
This board is a place for everyone to learn from what I do. The time and effort that has gone into every video, every tutorial, every photo shoot is not forgotten because it is here to be shared and shared again.
Also, because Pinterest is all about sharing. I would like to introduce BEAUTYAESTHETIC who are also part of this UK campaign.
So look out for Sami and Lisa from BeautyAesthetic, who will be posting tomorrow and learn why Sami loves Pinterest too!
