PINTEREST CURATOR | JEN HUANG

Curator Jen Huang BesottedI have not done a Pinterest Curator in ages, I used to love them, but truth be told they took an enormous amount of time which I don’t have a lot of anymore (there should be a time Lotto). I have to choose my time wisely and any extra time I have now seems like it would be better spent sleeping. Today I am making an exception, because this series was how I came upon Miss Jen Huang in the first place.  Jen emailed me that she enjoyed my series and after following her links I was sufficiently flattered, embarrassed that I wasn’t more ‘together’ and ecstatic to have found a new talent. In honor of our ‘meeting’, I wanted to share Jen’s Pinterest, she has been able to successfully use it to share her portfolio/work in a way that is authentic and infinitely ‘pinnable’. My favorite boards are Les Animaux (I am a little Frenchie biased), Paper & Ink, and On Location (envy producing for anyone with wanderlust). Please visit her boards here!

PINTEREST CURATOR SARAH YATES

Curator Sarah Yates Besotted

Sarah Yates has great style, a great story and just a certain ‘joie de vivre’.  When I was going through her boards she had little pops of this pink and peachy color that kept coming up, it’s very subtle and interspersed throughout but I loved how happy the combo felt so I decided to showcase both Sarah and her infinity for this palette.  I’m a little ready for some sunny days and Spring and this just feels so cheery, no? Sarah a photographer, blogger and style maven has some seriously addictive boards, my very favorite though is of her beloved pup Ruca Bean Yates-Mora. Visit Sarah’s boards here.

Hopefully I can steal some more time to share a sweet new font with you this week, I think you will like it!

PINTEREST CURATOR GARANCE DORE

Curator Garance Dore Besotted

Garance Dore is an internet success story/super star. Her name may be familiar to you as the very chic fashion illustrator (and photographer, writer and blogger). I was happily surprised when I saw that she was curating on Pinterest, it’s always a delight to spot an unexpected luminary there.  As you’d expect, Garance has some very forward boards, she is ‘in the know’ after all.  My favorite board though was her ‘Forever Cool’ a collection of photos of timeless beauties from various decades (from Grace Kelly to a young Kate Moss). I think you might also like to visit her Mes Classiques, Studio and La Parisienne.

I am working on my 2014 new year’s goals as I’m not great with resolutions.  As you can imagine I am more motivated than ever, my brain has been on over drive of what I need to accomplish this year and how I am going to go about doing it.  Do you have big plans as well?  I hope that I can make this place an even better resource for you to accomplish some of those goals, I have been working hard behind the scenes to try to make this happen.  I would love to hear any of your goals, I understand that if you let people know your goals that you are more apt to accomplish them.  Here’s to taking care of business!

PINTEREST CURATOR ROSE EBERSON

PINTEREST CURATOR ROSE EBERSON BESOTTED BLOGAm I the only one in disbelief that Christmas is next week?  How did that happen, it was just February wasn’t it?  I miss it here I do, thank you for being patient with me while I try to figure out how to be a new mom and also be part of the world at large, it’s not as seamless as I had imagined.  I did get to spend some time on my beloved (and sorely missed) Pinterest to discover Rose Eberson.  Roses’s boards have a moody romanticism to them, there are tons of categories to choose from and her boards are like a blog, there’s a lot of community interaction which I wish I had more of, I love knowing there are other like-minded individuals out there.

I imagine that things will start to quiet down now that the rush of holiday is done for my shop.  I didn’t have all my faculties together (not sleeping for a month will do that) and I made many mistakes (behind the scenes) and had to incur lots of extra fees for expedited shipping, but I was able to ship everything out and breathe a sigh of relief, I did it!  On another note I am going to compile a list of shows I have been able to watch (and enjoy) in all the time I have been spending not sleeping.  I wish I could say I have some movies or documentaries I could recommend but I don’t know when I will ever be able to watch a movie again (when she is 18?)  I will compile my list next week and we can compare notes, perhaps you will have some recommendations to add?  Wishing you all a happy weekend!

PINTEREST CURATOR BONNIE TSANG

 

Curator Bonnie Tsang BesottedI am always in awe of the Pinterest curators that have followers in the millions, photographer Bonnie Tsang is closer to 8 million.  8 million?!  There’s of course a reason for that she’s ahead of the curve.  I remember when she tapped the then unknown Anna Bond of Rifle Paper to create her logo, soon after Rifle exploded and a host of copiers followed, but when we were all just discovering Rifle (gleefully) she ditched her logo and re-branded. Yes, she is ahead of the pack indeed.  I have long appreciated her collection of  images of girls with crimson lips (both vintage and modern).  I love to see what a visual creative chooses to add to their boards. Some of my faves of Bonnie’s boards are her My Alter Ego board, Throw a Party, and Romanticism. If you want to help Bonnie get to 8 million followers go visit her boards.

On another note, I am still trying to figure out how to incorporate my blog into my new sleepless life as a new mama/zombie.  I hadn’t realized before how much time it took to run this here blog, it has always just been one of my great escapes and hasn’t felt much like work, I really love it and all of you.  I want to make sure that I create a balance and of course that my posts don’t suck (forgive my language).  I had a whole month planned of amazing DIY projects and had some very talented people that had pitched in to help, but of course baby b. came early and it was my first experience of my baby being the boss of me. I am going to sprinkle the DIY’s that were completed throughout this month, Michelle’s herbed sea salt is pretty spectacular and such an easy and elegant gift not just for holiday but at anytime of year! Feel free to pin that one and if you want to see what I have been pinning while I am up at night pumping (such an unflattering image) you can visit my boards here.
