That’s right flogstars, I’m a Pinhead now.

Check out my ‘online portfolio’ at http://www.pinterest.com/imogenmaxwell/makeup-by-me/ …and let me know if you’re on there, too, so I can sniff around your pinboards in return!

I didn’t give a damn about Pinterest until WordPress (hosts of this here flog) told me that if you’re blogging – or in my case, flogging – about subject matter with a highly visual element, such as makeup… then Pinterest is potentially one of your biggest referrers.

That means if I have pretty pictures of my makeup work on Pinterest, and people click on them… they’ll land right here.  More site traffic = faster track to world domination.  So now you can have a wee squizz at my finished works all in one place, if you so fancy.  Quicker for when you’re telling someone about how brilliant I am, for example.

Pinterest, for those who don’t know, is an online pinboard where you can store and share pictures and ideas.  Think… mood-boards for weddings, home decoration ideas…

does the carpet match the curtains?

…recipes, crafts, architecture, nail art, tattoos, photography… you get the gist.

I started an account a while ago with the thought that it would come in handy for college somehow, but only really started using it the last week or two.  I just didn’t really get it before, but it’s fun and there’s loads of cool shit on there.

You can have as many pinboards on the go as you like, and I’m finding it handy for organising the pics/ideas that I use for inspiration in my makeup world.  Plus, it’s yet another medium through which to obsess about David Bowie.

You are just perfection.

Speaking of inspiration.  My own creative river hasn’t been flowing for a while now and I’m starting to get worried.

I just bought this book on Amazon to try and rectify the situation.  Do any of you out there have a favourite art/design/makeup book that you refer to during ideas-droughts?  Let me know!

And so to bed.  Tomorrow brings with it my first photo shoot of this year, and I’ve got brushes to clean!

Here’s Mick and the boys twerking in sailor suits to send you off to the land of nod.  Sweet dreams, flogstars XX
