The British Are Coming! #pinitforwardUK

My friend, Beth, forced me into blogging

all those many years ago.

She also forced me to join this new website called Pinterest

that all the other bloggers were doing.

So I did it,

because when Beth tells you to do something,

you do it.

I thought it was the coolest thing.

And soon after, most of my American friends

started to join in the fun

and it seemed like the world of Pinterest exploded.

Dreamy pictures of Parisian cafes,

Paleo recipes & fashion week styles

began trending through our lives

and began offering us more visual stimulation

than a 12 year old gets watching

the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders at halftime.

My boards

- I kind of love them.

And for the past few years,

there have been different waves of discovery

for this amazing site...

...except here in the UK.

It's not really as big of a deal.

But it will be.

{Kinda feels good to be sending trends the other way over the Atlantic, doesn't it?}

This month, 

Pinterest is officially here in the UK.

Helena, Amber, Evan (Pinterest founder!) & Me

Kicking off with a FUN party in London

and now the


blog campaign,

they are officially here to stay!

Pin It Forward UK 2013

So what is Pinterest?

What does it mean to me?

It's a great way for bloggers

to pin ideas that inspire us for future posts...

it gives us a place to pin gadgets & travel gear

for our upcoming journeys...

it offers us working women a place to find

a delicious meal to make for dinner...

and, ultimately, it gives everyone stuck in a boring job

something fun to do every day from 2-4pm.

Are you already on Pinterest?

If not, it's time...
