How I got Pinterest to work for me (without trying)

So let me start off this post by saying I'm no expert blogger (clearly) and I don't assume to know any more about blogging than you do. I also will never presume that what worked for me will work for you. That said, I looked at my Pinterest news feed the other day and noticed that one of my posts has been pinned almost 300 times and some other posts, (like this one, this one and this one), are pinned pretty frequently. While they are by no means 'viral' posts, I think those are pretty good stats for a teensy tiny blog like my own.

The best part is that I honestly wasn't trying.

So I thought why not tell you what worked for me - or what I did on those posts that I didn't do on other posts.

Mini Haul: Makeup and Beauty

Happy Monday guys!

This weekend was a good one. I did work, hung out with OC after he worked on Saturday (he's an auditor at a 'Big Four' accounting firm and works as much or more than I do), visited the parents on Sunday and had date night Sunday night. There are no photos to prove any of this occurred. Not one. Ha! 

Anyway, my neighbour and friend Tisha recently scored some beauty items for me on her trip to NYC. I had to share them. They've been items I wanted for some time.

*I apologize for the poor quality of photos

Life Lately

Happy Thursday guys! I think this might be the first time that I missed an entire month on my blog. Did you miss me? No? You know what? I don't blame you. I hate flaky people as well. It's actually a pet peeve.

Anyway, in the event that you do have a minute to hear me out - here's 'whats new with me' lately (categorized of course because #TypeA ):

PS - No credit can be taken for this perfection of a photo. I paid for a shutterstock subscription a while back and got this stock photo on there... its to cute not to use!
