Pin It Forward - #PinitForwardUK

Yay - Pinterest has launched in the UK! If you've never heard of Pinterest then you need to get yourself a Pinterest account... like... now! But be warned, Pinterest can be highly addictive!

Pinterest is an online place where you can browse ideas and collect thoughts and inspiration. It is a visual feast and is packed full of ideas for families, fashion, DIY and pretty much anything you can think of. If you can find it on the internet, you can find it on Pinterest... just in a slightly groovier fashion!

Pinterest is like a virtual pin board. I use it to browse for ideas of fun craft and creative ideas to do with my girls. I have recently started using it to collect pictures of outfits for my two girls so that I know what sorts of clothes to look out for online. I also collect decorating inspiration for the future when I'm feeling adventurous enough to decorate my house. In fact, most of the products and ideas I've used when decorating our playroom have come from images that I found on Pinterest.

The board I most enjoy pinning ideas to is my "Birthday Cake Ideas" pin board - Pinterest is like cake-heaven and is certainly packed full of brilliant recipes from around the world (not just for cake!). My new-found passion for cake decorating is entirely fuelled by Pinterest and because each pin not only captures the image, but also captures the link to the webpage it originally came from, I've been able to go back and visit the recipes and step-by-step instructions.

As part of the UK launch I'd like to introduce you to a fab UK pinner - Transatlantic Blonde who pins at I've followed her online for quite some time now and her "Don't hate me cause I'm beautiful" board is inspiration for one of my own board - "Make me scrumptious". Here's an example of her pins...

If only for the fact that you can find lots of silly pictures of cats you should come and join Pinterest. You can follow me on pinterest ( and if you don't yet have an account then you can register here.
