Popular Pins // November Winter Edition

Popular Pins // November Winter Edition

Happy Friday friends!  I rounded up a few of my favorite and most popular pins for the winter/holiday season and they are fun!  If you want to follow me on Pinterest, you can do so HERE.  I’m nearing 10,000 pins.  Clearly, I spend too much time on Pinterest.  Have a great weekend!

Navy with Silver Sparkles Manicure via Deb Shops– 101 repins

An accent nail is about as adventurous as I go with my nails.  I’ll definitely be trying this.

Black & White Tribal Cardigan via Zulily – 93 repins

An open cardigan is so easy to wear this time of year and the pattern on this one is interesting.

Happy Friday again!  This week sure flew by and, surprise!, we’re already nearing the end of October.  I drove down one of our main streets at night recently, Westheimer Road, which passes by the Houston Galleria and through the popular Highland Village, and noticed that the palm trees that line both sides of the street were strung with white Christmas lights.  It got me a little excited for the holiday season, which will be here before we know it.

I’ve got some popular pins to share with you today.  And I’ve been working on organizing my Pinterest boards better and have added some new boards Men (mostly men’s fashion/style) and Wedding (just because the photos are so pretty and for those of you looking for wedding inspiration).

Lulu & Georgia Gift Shop

Lulu & Georgia Gift Shop

Yes, Christmas is still months away (less than three now), but birthdays, anniversaries, showers, hostess/bridesmaid opportunities, and just becauses exist all year long. Lulu & Georgia just launched their gift shop and it is filled to the brim with awesome goodies! I’m especially loving their bright, poppy accessories and think they would instantly brighten anyone’s day, not to mention home. What do you think?

Even though I’ve started to get the hang of Twitter, and I’m all about Instagram, Pinterest is my first love. Last night I got a notification that my favorite store is following me, and they repinned some of my pins! How cool?!

You might not be on Pinterest near as much as I am (popping in periodically everyday-or are you??) so I’m sharing some of the most popular pins from my boards. I think you’ll really like!

Chicken Yakisoba via Joysama– 233 repins

Happy Friday to you!  Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?  I get to finally get a desperately needed haircut and we have a cute kiddo birthday to attend.  And that’s it!  I’m cherishing weekends like this that aren’t jam packed with errands and activities where it’s go, go, go.  I’m trying to slow down and keep visiting with my parents and cook and exercise more. I’m talking about my current cardio routine on Honey We’re Healthy today if you want to check it out.  I know there will be weekends in the future that are crazy busy and when that time comes,

Pins of the Week

Pins of the Week

Part of the reason I love Pinterest so much is because it allows me to track and organize all of my pins and then use my boards as a resource for home projects, future blog posts, and food/fashion ideas.  I most often pin to these boards:  Yummy (526 pins); Crafty (409 pins); Christmas (350 pins); Love & Fashion, Beauty, Hair (tied at 308 pins); Yes Please (282 pins); Paper and Things (180 pins); and Organization and Cleaning (126 pins).

I also love to see what y’all are repinning- this lets me know what you are most interested in and what you like.

In just a couple of months, Cassie (Hi Sugarplum), Courtney (A Thoughtful Place), and Carmel (Our Fifth House) will be talking about blogging and Social Media at the Haven blog conference.  As we prepare, I wanted to reach out to YOU (who better to ask?!) and find out what forms of social media you like best (and worst) and what questions you have about how to use social media.

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I love

DIY Closet Office & New Pinterest Board

While browsing Pinterest yesterday, I came across a knockout gorgeous image of a closet-turned-office and when I looked a little closer, saw immediately that it was the creation of my beautifully talented friend Courtney of A Thoughtful Place blog.  Have you seen it?  You’ll never believe what she wallpapered the walls with! Go HERE to read the full post with all the details and sources.

Speaking of friends, Courtney (A Thoughtful Place), Cassie (Hi Sugarplum), Carmel (Our Fifth House) and I are so excited to be speaking at the Haven conference this year.
