Pinning My Life Away

30 Sep

So by now most people out there in design blog land know what Pinterest is.  If not let me explain: Pinterest is a service that let’s you store (pin) images from any website onto digital boards on the Pinterest website.  It allows you to categorize the boards to your liking.  For instance a member can have a board just for Pink Rooms or for Places I Want To Travel.  Well I signed up, waited I don’t know how many countless days to be allowed in then finally got my oh so coveted approval.  And let me just tell you it is ingenious…..and maybe the most additive website ever for a design junky like myself!

Now in the morning instead of checking my email I hop right over to Pinterest to see what new goodies have been posted.  If I’m in the mood to look up interiors with lavender I can and dozens of images pop up.  Brilliant!  If something catches my eye I can “pin it” to any of my 25 boards.  Before to save anything I would have to click and save an image then take forever to find it again.  Now it is right in front of me neatly categorized.  Oh and if anyone repins or likes a picture from one of your boards they send you a lovely e-mail (You Have New Pins and Likes on Pinterest).  Getting an email just makes my day a little brighter somehow.  When I finally make it to my email.  Anyway if you are still with me, you can follow me on Pinterest here.  Here are some recent pins for your Friday night enjoyment below.

Andy Cohen Makes Me Smile

31 Jul

I have an unhealthy love of all things Bravo.  Flipping Out, Rachel Zoe, Top Chef, Million Dollar Decorators, etc, etc.  Oh yes bring it on,  if it is a weekend marathon even better, one right after another slowly chipping away my motivation and will.    However, nothing holds a candle to the Real Housewives.  Every time I say I won’t watch I do, like a pile up on the freeway I can not look away.  I realize how bad it is.  These women are vain, snarly, self absorbed and just plain mean to one another.  Well most of them anyway.

On the last New York reunion it was almost unwatchable.  The way they went after each other for the most  petty of reasons.  Kelly (batshit crazy that one) said something about Sonia’s dirty townhouse and Sonia called her out on it.  Kelly acted like nothing happened and started babbling nonsense about being named Como’s nicest celebrity. Or something to that effect.  So once again I wrote these crazy ladies off, said no more.  Till I found this:

Oh I can tell it is going to be a good season a very good season indeed.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and slut pigs to all!
