I find it very…Pinteresting.


Obviously one of the best blog post titles ever devised by a human being. Extremely witty; full of pure banter. Completely original in every single way.

So Pinterest, eh.

Do you need ideas for your office? Pinterest. Do you want ideas for your new living room or for the perfect bedroom? Pinterest. Are you looking for beautiful tattoo designs or pictures of your dream car? Pinterest. “Oh no, where am I going to find designs and decoration ideas for my birthday party, or the wedding?” Keep Calm and Pinterest.

Pinterest is the homeland of pictures, for anything and everything you could possibly be looking for. Create boards and Pin images to them so people looking for the same things as you, can find them quickly and easily. And as you search, and search, and search for hours, upon hours, upon hours your Pinterest experience is tailored to suit you personally as a professional Pinner. Any images that Pinterest thinks you might like, go directly to your homepage. So you can log in, or open the App on your phone and you have a mixed selection of office designs, cars and bikes, dogs, cats, gardens, tattoos, music. I mean, literally everything, just waiting to be liked, and re-pinned to your own boards and profile.

I found Pinterest when I was looking through the app store for something new, saw that fancy looking P and thought it looked… interesting (I never pull the same pun twice), that would look Pin..diotic, ok maybe not. But you can see why I don’t try puns too often. I started using it for pictures of bands I enjoy listening to, then I gained an interest in cars and bikes. My main focus, however, is my ‘Fashion’ board. It has almost 300 Pins and is the pride and joy of my Pin..file (Profile…). I use it to Pin everything I can find about Men’s fashion. I also love my ‘Chic’ and ‘Architecture’ boards, I know, I’m SO Tumblr these days.

You know my favourite thing about Pinterest is the fact that it is one of the more PG Social Media sites. It’s quite a chilled community and i’ve only ever really had any poor comments once or twice on one of my pins. Generally people are quite helpful or more likely they’ll keep to themselves and just enjoy pinning away. In fact, a lot of Pinterest is used by mums and their hobby craft addictions.

I think one of the things people often find weird about Pinterest is its friendly feel. Most other social media sites have darkened over the years, and have gathered a bad reputation for being confrontational and full of internet trolls. Pinterest is a social media site and App where you can just chill and not worry about any ‘keyboard warriors’ ruining your day.

Pinterest is a wonderful thing and I strongly urge everyone to give it a go. You might feel a little alienated by it at first, but trust me, you’ll be pinning like a pro in no time!

Here, I’ll leave a link to my very own Pinterest profile ‘MiddleFloorDan‘ so you can have a look and see for yourself. Then it’s up to you to set yourself up and get pinning.


Until next time…




That Looks App-ealing

Over the past few years there have been advances in technology that have changed the world for the better. People have been getting ideas that make all kinds of things easier for us mere mortals to do, from online shopping and e-books to anything Apple-branded and Google glasses (Top Tip: Don’t buy them, you’ll look rather silly). But the one thing that has taken technology by storm and that has become one of the most lucrative ideas for anyone to be able achieve is Apps. Yep, those little Applications on your iPhone and Smartphones are steadily taking over our lives. There is literally something for everyone and they are created to be ultra user friendly and mega helpful.

So here is my very own guide to my favourite Apps; both paid and free (excluding Flappy Bird, I can’t be dealing with talking about that evil devil, plus it has been taken down by the owner and therefore you can no longer get it, thankfully.)

1. Social Network Apps. I’m bunching these all in the same point as they are basically the same thing. These Apps make it so much easier for the user to access all of their favourite social networking accounts. Whether it’s Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Keek, Pinterest. You’ll find an App for your favourite one whatever it might be.

2. Pic Collage. Create your very own collages easily with this App. You choose what picture you want to add to your collage directly from your phones images and then arrange them in a way that best suits you. It’s fun, free, and easy to use.

3. Movie FX.  This is such a laugh. Just point and film anything, then watch it explode or get taken out by an alien. Watch a fighter jet crash land in your  back garden or witness the Starship Enterprise rain fire down on your house.

4. Super Stickman Golf 2. You know that boring gap in the day when you find yourself commuting anywhere. Well ususally you’d Facebook or Tweet your heart out but not anymore. Download this App, and whether you like golf or not you will find yourself completely and utterly addicted to this game.

5. Snapseed. One of the best photo editing Apps you will ever download.  The easily maneuverable and user friendly setup allows even the biggest novice in photography to transform their everyday mundane photo, in to something much more aesthetically pleasing.

6. Slopro- 1000fps Slow Motion video. This App gives some outstanding results, and if you practice enough you can create really eye-catching footage. This is a must-have App for anyone.

7. Wow FX. This App really needs no help in explaining why it’s amazing. So simply download it now and let it do the work for you. Simple.

8. Logos Quiz Game. Do you find yourself wanting to be more frustrated? Do you forget things quickly and need an App that reminds you how forgetful you are? Well look no further,  because Logos Quiz App is one of the most addictive and frankly bloody annoying Apps out there. Think you know all of your logos, think again my friend.

9. Deer Hunter 2014. This might not be for everyone. But if you like this type of hunting/sniping game, it really is something else. Best when downloaded on the iPad, the graphics are amazing and really realistic. You can find  yourself spending a very long time trying to get that perfect shot. Another must-have App, this time for gamers.

10. Emoji. I love this one. I use it everyday, you simply download it to your iPhone and you can automatically use the emojis provided in your regular texts. The emojis are far better than your bog standard default emojis and you’ll find yourself using them for everything!

There you have it. My Top Ten Apps. If you have an App that you find amazing and you really want to share it with me, feel free to leave a comment on this post so I can try it out and let you know what I think.
