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

If Pinterest Was Real
A cautionary poem. Read More »

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 finds on Pinterest and writing up hilariously honest reviews of the process and end results. Spoiler alert: her attempts usually don’t turn out anything like the gleaming, flawless pictures you see on Pinterest (the picture above is her attempt at “Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake”). From nail art to wine jello shots, she’s trying everything, unabashedly failing, and bringing some much needed humor into the frighteningly perfect world of Pinterest. Sonja, we raise our mason jar of slightly disappointing homemade sangria to you! [Via Laughing Squid]

Pinterest wedding

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 was time to add a new board.

As a proud member of the one percent of Pinterest users who didn’t already have a Dream Wedding board, I started a For Real Wedding board and began to explore the site’s “Weddings and Events” category. Within five minutes, it became apparent to me that I would need to locate a rustic barn surrounded by an endless field of wildflowers. According to Pinterest, that seems to be the only place people are getting married these days. Keep reading »

I use Pinterest as a visual wishlist of the products I’d love to buy if I had a little extra cash–everything from shoes to clothes to makeup to home decor–and I’ve bought a number of products after seeing them pop up on my Pinterest homepage. This is why I’m both intrigued and excited about a new program called Shopinterest that allows you to turn a Pinterest board into an online store. Here’s how it works…

Our favorite new Internet timewaster, Pinterest has in recent weeks become a haven for online pro-anorexia and eating disorder communities. Drawn to the site’s image-heavy, community-oriented style, thinsporation posters have recently flooded the site, posting pictures of jutting hips, emaciated models and concave bellies, emblazoned with pro-ana slogans like “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” And, most importantly, Pinterest posters can post anonymously, meaning that users can reach out to one another but still feel safe.

But all of that is about to change.
