When I was a freshman in college I asked my parents for an MP3 player. However, unlike most people, I didn’t want an iPod. I thought they were overpriced and just a stupid fad. Also I really thought the circular menu “button” was bizarre, I mean, I didn’t really get it. So instead my parents bought me a massive mp3 player that was about the size of a Walkman and was a brand name that I can’t even remember. Instead of calling it an iPod, we called it an iHouse. Needless to say, a few years later, I broke down and bought an iPod.
When UGG boots first arrived on the scene, I thought – “hmm, these look comfortable.” But I couldn’t quite figure out if you were supposed to wear socks with them or not, should they go under or over your pants, and I wasn’t sure if the suede fabric would hold up for long enough. Either way, I was certain that these boots wouldn’t be around for very long. I mean, what shoes, that are comfortable, stay in style? Well, after 3 longstanding seasons, I broke down and put UGGs on my Christmas list. My feet have never been happier. Just ask Tom Brady.
So it is no surprise that I am not jumping on the trend bandwagon late again. Many of my friends have been “pinning” things on this new website, Pintrest, for months but I didn’t fulling embrace this new site. I signed up for an account a few months back and pinned a few pictures and that was about it. Finally, after countless people have said “what? how are YOU not obsessed with pinterest?!?!” I decided to give it another chance.
And while I am still not entirely certain how much I like this site – honestly, it makes me sad that my wedding is over and jealous of people who have these ridiculously awesome apartments and houses, I am not a contributing member to the pintrest society. So please, sign up, follow along and share some of your inspiration!
