Pinterest; The Marmite of the Internet

Now the hype surrounding Pinterest has calmed down a bit, have people become bored of it? It’s time for me to voice my opinion… Yes, I know everyone and their dog has written a blog post about Pinterest, but I couldn’t help but voice my opinion. I love it; my name is Jennie and I think I might be addicted to Pinterest, there I said it. But even with true love, things are not perfect, Pinterest and its users.. Read More

I Think There’s Something ‘Between’ Us

There are two sides of my personality that were fighting against each other to decide which angle to take with this blog post about an app which is specifically just for couples. The fact is, super cliquey, coupley couples ARE annoying. The whole “No, you hang up first” cliché is not something I will submit to. On the other hand, I am an affectionate person and like my other half to be so too. But there is.. Read More
