Pinterest is a fast-growing idea-sparking website where users can create virtual pin boards to organize their thoughts and ideas on various categories.
Everything from food to fashion, creative event ideas and do-it-yourself crafts are displayed for all to enjoy. The site also has a polite and encouraging atmosphere without any bashing. It's a perfect place to get fashion ideas.
Pinners post pictures of wardrobe ensembles, and often times, users will find that they already own most of the pieces, just never thought to put them together in that way. It's almost as fun as shopping because suddenly you see the wardrobe you already have, in a whole new way!
Useful make up and hair styling tutorials are also popular on Pinterest. They teach you the tricks of the trade so you can learn how to create salon-quality styles all by yourself.
The pin boards are a great way to organize actual event ideas or day-dream about fantasy events. For example, it's popular for users to create pin boards for baby showers or dream weddings, even when they don't have kids and aren't engaged! Users also, share cost-cutting, crafty suggestions.
