WHY I (SOMETIMES) DON'T LIKE PINTEREST

Title take you a little off guard? I figured it might. But it's true, sometimes I truly don't like Pinterest and let me tell you why. 

Because I think it sometimes gives you a false idea about things and puts ideas in your head that may be unrealistic. Tell me how many times you've seen a proposal on a wedding board and the caption underneath is "He must do this, this, this, and this". That kind of thing just makes me cringe. Does he really have to hire  a photographer to get pictures, does he really have to ask your best friend to go with him to pick out the ring. No, I don't think he does. Now, if he does these things, then good for him. But if he doesn't, I'm sure everything will still be perfect. But pinterest fills your head with ideas that you think you HAVE to have, when in actuality, you don't. 

Or the beauty and fitness pages, oh my goodness. If you have even a bit of low self-esteem looking at these pages might just make you crash and burn. I mean all these diets and how to count calories if you want to look like one specific person. And the diet just might be a good plan, but to bribe you by telling you you're going to look like this person or that person...you're not. You're going to look like you, just possibly a version that you like better. 

Now, I don't mean to rag on Pinterest at all because I spend a lot of my days on there I love to try new beauty products that I find out about, try new crafts, etc. I just don't like how it sometimes makes it seem like you have to have a house this big, with all this fabulous furniture and your skin and hair has to look like this and you have to be proposed to a certain way and your wedding has to look a certain way. 

While pinterest is a GREAT site with fantastic ideas, don't let yourself get sucked in and start thinking that you have to keep up with the Jones'.


Love you Pinterest, mean it.

I'll be on a plane to London tomorrow! Spring Break is at my fingertips!!

  11. Hey girl stopping by from the linkup and a new follower:) I completely agree with you and that's why I took a break from it all for a few months. obviously I couldn't resist getting back on, but sometimes after browsing a feel a little deflated! Glad to know I'm not alone :)
