My friend Bailie who lives in Sweden is lucky enough to spend her summer traveling and has asked me to write a guest post for her. It went up on her blog a few days ago, but I wanted to share it here and also direct you to her blog because, well, it's awesome and interesting. As someone who would love to live anywhere else but doesn't have the nerve to do it, I love reading about life in a different country. Check her out.
Top Five Worst:
I have lots of ideas for my "Top Five Worst" list. I actually have any given number of this list in my head at any given time.
Top Five Worst Unidentifiable Stains?
Top Five Worst Ways to Spend the Next Five Minutes?
Top Five Worst Gas Station Bathrooms?
Top Five Worst Phrases I've Ever Heard?
But my favorite worst of all time, is Pinterest.
I have a love/hate relationship with Pin (that's the affectionate name my bff and I use). It is a great place to go if you want to get inspiration to do almost anything in the world that you can basically never attain.
Sorry, but it's true. You're never going to live here (by you, I mean everyone else besides me and you. Eventually we will live in houses like this):
But I better get started here.
The Top Five Worst Reasons To Get On Pinterest
(These are all from my personal boards. If you're interested in all things ridiculous, I'm angiyt)
5. To find clothes to buy.
Are you aware what happens to clothes on Pinterest? It's where they go to die. As soon as an item of clothing makes it to Pin, it's done. Everything cute is either already sold out, on backorder, or is being sold from a country that eBay won't even ship from. Good luck, and no thanks.
4. To lose weight.
I have this really awesome fitness board, and as you see, if you pin something more than once you lose twice the weight. None of these motivational quotes have made me push away from the computer and say "you know! I should run! Now!" P.S. I don't even like running.
3. To get ideas for redecorating.
Like I said before, chances are these houses will only happen if you win an amazing vacation from the Ellen Show and they're part of the resort. I would bet that none of us will actually have a wine cellar under our kitchen island. Heck, I'd be happy with a kitchen island.
2. To get ideas for your new haircut.
Look at this mess. None of these women have my hair type, and I have 67 different types of cut on here. But to be fair, 66 of them are Jennifer Aniston.
1. To find something for dinner.
Yeah. Right. We've all done this. Oh? Dinner, you say? You get stuck on pin so long that you start to believe that this is a suitable dinner. Oh, who am I kidding. I'll go to my fitness board and work it off anyway.
What do you find most ridiculous about Pin?
