This is going to sound like an over-dramatization, but I’m being completely serious when I say that Pinterest changed my life. I know that, for many people, scanning Pinterest boards can cause discontent. For me, that’s not the case. Okay, sure, it would be lovely if my life looked more like some of these images, but it inspires me to make my life more beautiful. A few months ago, it hit me that Pinterest really helped me discover my style.

When I first started pinning, it was a mix of various things, but nothing very cohesive. I pinned things here and there that I thought other people would think were great, not just what I thought was great. This is sort of how I had lived life before and my style reflected that. Not cohesive, not comfortable, not me. I had trouble knowing who I was, because I thought I was supposed to be a certain way. This changed pretty quickly as I spent more time on Pinterest and I began finding myself drawn to things that all had a cohesive feel. I could see, right there on my page, my style evolving and finally settling into a collection that really felt like me.

I really love my Pinterest time. I find myself on there mostly at night, while I’m trying to fall asleep, or first thing in the morning. It’s relaxing, my version of counting sheep, I suppose. Also, side note, my Pinterest boards are more organized than most things in my life.

So, that’s how this series was born. I’m going to be sharing my favorite pins once a week on here and hopefully, you’ll find yourself as inspired as I am.

P.S. You can find me here on Pinterest.

    I love this! It can be easy to feel like you don’t have this or that but it’s also such a great space for inspiration! I usually am drawn to your pins :)

    I’m a pin-a-holic… I usually pin pretty food, amazing clothes and absolutely wonderful homes. I feel like I know what my future home will be now that i’ve pinned everything for it.

  • Absolutely! My mom has a hard time understanding why I want white walls and lighter furniture. They keep telling me I MUST have color on my walls. I didn’t know how to explain other than saying, “That’s just what I like!” So I just showed her my Pinterest board. ;)

  • It really is! I am always so inspired. Thank you, sweet friend!
