7 Things I Hate About Pinterest

Oh Pinterest! I’m addicted to you and all your pretty pictures. Your recipes, your crafts, your hot Ryan Gosling photos.

An Inner Monologue For Every At-Home Manicure I’ve Ever Done

The scene: 8:30 p.m pretty much every Tuesday, my living room.

Alright, I’ve got my glass of wine poured, yoga pants on, “Parks & Rec” cued up on Netflix, and a brand new bottle of oxblood nail polish. Oxblood is so in right now. Obviously. I’m pampering myself and saving money in the…

Girl Talk: How I Staged A Pinterest Stalking Intervention

We don’t always talk about it, but we certainly all do it. For better or worse, cyber-stalking has become part of the DNA of a breakup. If you thought a breakup was bad in 2002 when you had to run into the ex at school or work the next day and maybe bump into them with…

The Soapbox: Oh Please, Pinterest Isn’t “Killing” Feminism

My name is Amelia. I am a feminist. I also have a Pinterest account. If a recent lengthy piece on Buzzfeed (wait, Buzzfeed does “lengthy”?) is to be believed, these two things are antithetical. According to Amy Odell, the editor over at Buzzfeed’s lifestyle vertical, Shift, Pinterest is “killing feminism.” So, as a feminist who use…

Feminism Is Dead And It’s Probably Your Fault

Did you know that Pinterest is killing feminism? Yup, that website that you were really batshit crazy about back in May but haven’t really touched since is the reason why feminism lies in a crumpled heap at your feet.

15 Foods That Make Us Irrationally Angry

So, the other day, this “cucumber sub” popped up on my Pinterest page labeled as the “perfect low carb sandwich” and it made me, like, raging mad.

“Pintester” Is Messing Up Pinterest Tutorials So You Don’t Have To

I love Pinterest, but certain recipes and DIYs make me a little suspicious. Crockpot tiramisu? Really? Five-minute French tip manicure? Riiiiiight. My Pinterest side eye has been hilariously validated by a writer named Sonja Foust, also known as the “Pintester.” For the past six months, Foust has been testing recipes, crafts, and style tips she…

Girl Talk: Pinterest Ruined My Wedding Planning

I heard about Pinterest at a wedding reception last year and within 24 hours, I was hooked. I had to pin everything: I grabbed every vegan recipe, organizing tip, cute outfit, inspirational quote, and makeup tutorial I could get my freshly ombre-manicured fingers on. Then, a few months later, I got engaged and suddenly it…
