I find it very…Pinteresting.

pinterest

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…

BYE!

 

 

It’s GQ Time!

Whenever I get a GQ I automatically head straight to two things; the main feature interview and the back fashion pages. This month is a treat beyond all measures because not only is the feature article an interview with Jessica Alba (there are also some awesome photos); but the back pages are full to the brim with awesome summer buys. So to sum up, so far it’s pretty awesome.

I’m going to point out a few of my favourites from this months edition that wont break the bank, and hopefully you guys will go out and treat yourselves to.

armandanavyredIt’s no secret by now that I like deck shoes (or boat shoes) and these Armada deck shoes from Chatham for £59.00 are not only a great price, but are perfect for the summer. Good choice, GQ. Wear them with some chino shorts and a white cotton shirt.

 

Watch_1If you saw my Pinterest you’d know that I have a slight obsession with watches. I have a few myself and I feel naked without my watch on. To me it doesn’t really matter if it’s expensive or really cheap, a watch is a thing of beauty and a piece of art that still baffles me when I try to figure out how they are crafted. This watch is £150.00 and worth every penny. It has a slight stealthy element to it and it definitely has a simple, understated beauty to its design. I love this watch, and am very tempted.

WayFlyerTort2_largeI don’t have many pairs of sunglasses, but I do like them, and these Wayflyer 2.0 Redwood Polarised sunny’s from Johnny Fly Co just make me want to buy more. I love the wooden-look arms and the frames have such a beautiful and warming pattern that they scream summer. Get them for $88.00 USD. No really, get them.

moorgate broguesI have never owned a pair of shoes like these, but I have recently begun to really see why you would. They work on both a formal and casual basis and they are so cheap I wouldn’t be surprised if they are sold out everywhere. £39.00. I mean come on, what more of a bargain can I possibly find you?

 

I love GQ, it always has something for everyone and it never fails to deliver pure quality products to its readers. Thanks, GQ.

Let me know what your favourites from any of your favourite magazines or websites are, so I can go check them out.

 

Until next time…
