Using Pinterest for Writing Fiction

Pinterest is somewhere many of us collect idea for our lives. From home design to fancy dress party ideas, vegan cakes and small bathrooms. If you have an interest in something you can create collections and organise ideas. You can find my Pinterest profile here. I use the secret/hidden board function quite a bit for novel writing. I keep them secret as I don’t want people getting confused over what I’m pinning, but also because things change so much when…

What is Pinterest? Getting started

Last year I had the pleasure of attending a workshop put on by Pinterest UK. Yes it’s take me ages to get around to writing this- oopsy! Despite the UK being the second biggest Pinterest community we are relatively small compared to the USA. It struck me that as it’s still fairly small over here some of you guys might not be on Pinterest, due to not really knowing how it works, or what it’s used for. So…

It just so happens that these wild flowers are…

And I’ve finally moved house, I cant really believe it has actually happened, at one point we thought the whole thing was going to fall through with some problems at the bottom of the chain. If there’s one bit of advice I’d offer up to people moving house- avoid the chain if at all possible. You’ve probably heard it before or been through it yourself but the amount of stress being  in…

Living Room Shopping Tips

When buying for the home I think its safe to say that we all could easily spend a fortune on anything from wardrobes to bed linen.  My Pinterest boards alone will tell you that! The trick is to know how and where to shop, and when you can get away with inexpensive items, and when you really should fork out a bit more cash if you can. I thought I’d share some of my buying tips…
