Be Your Own Pin Up Girl: A Pinterest Story

Be Your Own Pin Up Girl: A Pinterest Story

Be Your Own Pin Up Girl: A Pinterest Story

by Francesca Alexander

Digital Publicist. Global Dreamer. Entrepreneurial Activist


It’s not a surprise that women have taken over the most popular social media network and here’s why.  Well before we get into that did you know that Pinterest has over 4 million users and females dominate as users from 25 to 45 of age.  Let me tell you it is addicting and the images are soothing enough to escape from the stress of the day.

Pinterest is a virtual pinboard.  Imagine looking at your favorite types of images, pinning on your virtually board then sharing it.  Women have used this to share their baby announcements to even planning a wedding.


Check out this video on how you can apply Pinterest while your traveling.



Before you get on board with Pinterest here is some inspiration from some of my favorite boards.


Oprah Rooms We Want To Read In

Can it get better than that?  Who can’t resist not having a lovely moment with Oprah and view her favorite rooms…

Hi there, Thanks a lot for this brilliant article! I will save this website. Many thanks.

Hey Francesca,
Great post and video. I picked up some great tips and examples. I already use Pinterest, although not with a marketing agenda at the moment. Just having fun right now. What I do like about Pinterest so far is that for a marketer, you can step outside of your niche more and venture into what interests you in a very creative way. It’s so fun!

Thanks Louise! Let me know if you have any tips on Pinterest to. Take care, xo Francesca

ohhhh love that! that’s not silly at all. everytime i try to wear gloss or liistpck that is red, i take it off before i leave the house because i get so nervous about it lol. i did discover last year, while trying out yellow nail polish, that if you try something for a full day, then you may just love it. maybe i should try red liistpck for one full day :)
