I'm a major user of Pinterest, I mean MAJOR! But a lot of people in the UK still don't know about Pinterest or know what it's for. Pinterest is a site that lets you create online moodboards for any topic you like- I use it for pinning inspirational web designs and branding, so that my design clients can refer to those boards if they need inspiration. In fact, I use Pinterest in every design process with every one of my clients.
Pinterest has recently launched in the UK and I couldn't be more excited about it! A handful of bloggers are posting about it and showing it some support, including my friend Katy Jones from Imaginer Monkey. You can follow her over on Pinterest here.
If you're into scrapbooking/creating moodboards then I definitely recommend joining Pinterest, you'll become addicted! Let me know if you join and your username so I can look you up!

Outfit: Boots c/o Free People | Bag- Cath Kidston | Ring: c/o Unexpected Expectancy | Dress & cardigan: Warehouse
Usually, when wearing a cute outfit like this I like to team it with a sweet pair of ballet flats or loafers. But that's in Summer time, of course! You may remember me wearing this exact dress last summer in an outfit post on the beach! But today, I couldn't resist trying the ensemble out with this pair of over the knee boots.
I've always been more of an ankle boot person, but now I've now I've happily converted! Over the knee boots don't just look awesome, they keep your legs nice and toasty, which is always a bonus!
These boots in particular perfectly tone down a somewhat 'cutesy' outfit. If ever you wear an outfit that has the potential to make you look childish or a little too 'prim and proper', slap a pair of combat boots on your feet and all will be even again. Trust me.
I hope you all have a happy weekend!
PS. Have you seen Free People's latest video, Roshambo? It's fantastic. Plus, it has Christopher Abbott in it, from Girls! It's a must-see.
