Spring clean – dusting off Pinterest
I’ve always thought spring cleaning was a waste of time. Deep clean, washing windows, throwing away stuff all seems like boring and time consuming tasks, yet come April the last few years I find myself doing just that. Going through old clothes, throwing away bunches of superfluous paperwork, dusting and hoovering behind everything. This year my spring clean so far has consisted of stripping away floral wallpaper, repainting magnolia walls bright white, making windows possible to see through again and organising my work space.

Today the spring clean extended to Pinterest. Once a favourite, I have long been neglecting Pinterest in favour of the newer kid on the block, Instagram. However, after a review of where traffic to our website comes from, it was quickly made very clear to me that I should not be neglecting it any more! Pinterest is a lovely way of quickly sharing your favourite inspirational images with friends and other like minded people. It works as a virtual pinboard, hence the name. You pin your interests onto themed boards and create your own online scrapbook. It’s a great way to keep visual references and reminder of things you have liked whilst looking at different websites.

I use Pinterest to share my fashion inspiration, cute and fluffy animals, beautiful knitwear and images of our designs and photoshoots. Do you use Pinterest? What do you enjoy pinning or sharing?
