Collecting and sharing inspiration

A couple of months ago, one of my designer friends came to me all excited about this new website she had found. She told me it was so useful and easy to use that she had become completely addicted to it and promptly showed me the app on her iphone.
At first I didn't pay much attention, but when she sent me the email invite to join Pinterest, I gave it a go.
So what is so good about this website, is that it allows you to collect and organize pictures with direct links to the website where they originally came from. Each picture is called a "pin" and you pin it in one of your "pinboards". You can create as many pinboards as you like, and these are just like the folders in your computer. You can also follow people with similar tastes to yours or particular boards, so you can see all their new pins and repin them if you like.
This is specially useful for us, creative people, that are constantly looking for inspiration. I used to have folders with pictures of things I wanted to do and I often needed to know the source of the photos and couldn't remember where I got them from. With Pinterest I'll never have that problem again!
People also use Pinteret to gather recipes, decoration ideas for the house or wedding planning.
It's a great source of inspiration, a powerful bookmarking tool and a way of sharing your creations. I highly recommend it!
I 've just installed a "Pin it" button on the blog, so it's easier for you to pin any picture you like. And you can find my boards here, if you want to have a look.

Happy pinning!

Summer in Sydney

The weather has been humid and warm and the sun doesn't show up that often.
It's hard for me to accept that this is the Summer I'll get this year. In Portugal, were I came from, Summer started in June and lasted until September with beautiful sunny days and no sight of rain. Hopefully we'll have that kind of Summer here later on too. They say Summer is a bit late this year and it will probably last longer than usual. I can't wait to be able to go for a swim everyday after work, since I'm now living a few steps from the beach!

In the meantime, I'm taking conform in the flavours of the season. There's so many beautiful fresh fruit in the markets now, and cheaper than ever!

So for now I'll get my inspiration from all the colours and flavours that surround me. I'm working on some Valentine's Day goodies that should be in store very soon. Stay tuned!
