Anyone have a Pinterest?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

I found this site when I was looking for an invitation to Pinterest.  It looks like you are all "in" already :)  But in case someone else pops by and is desperately looking like I was, I got signed up at this site www.pinterest-invites.com

 

I hope I just saved someone hours of searching!  Then I will feel like my suffering was worth-while :)

I use it as a way to stimulate ideas and creativity, much like tearing pages out of a magazine.

For some reason it just doesn't appeal to me.

I use it because I hate Tumblr, which is too disorganized for my taste. It's easier to follow people who have the same interests as me, since you can follow individual boards rather than everything the user posts. For example, if someone has a kittens board, you an only follow that board- rather than being forced to follow everything the user posts in case they're interested in both kittens and, I don't know... S&M.

 

I have the attention span of a gnat and have been using Pinterest for over a year, whereas I got bored/ frustrated with Tumbler after a couple of weeks.

 

It's also really interesting to see what's being repinned. I have a Dr. Suess quote that was repinned 240 times in the last week for some reason.

So very addicting!! I recently introduced my mother to Pinterest and she's completely obsessed now! She pinned more things in her first WEEK there than I had in an ENTIRE YEAR! 

 

 

I didn't know Makeuptalk was founded in Huntington Beach.I went to HBHS way back in the day when I lived in Sunset. 

 

Here's my Pinterest link...... http://pinterest.com/pinktamale/

    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
