Pinning Vs. Doing

I love Pinterest. As a person who works best with visuals, it’s an ideal way to track and categorize my interests.

I took a step away from it awhile ago, because I noticed I was spending much more time looking up things I wanted to do/read/bake/craft rather than actually doing them. The same way I sometimes spend an hour browsing through Netflix and adding films to my list rather than settling on something and watching it. I’m not sure how, but doing things I was supposed to enjoy just added up became another to-do list, and I wasn’t getting excited about it. IMG_0926

So here’s a little step towards the doing. These nails were one of the first things I pinned when I started using pinterest years ago, and this week I decided it was time (also my nail polish collection had time to grow and I finally had similar colours). Kind of superficial, and yes they clash with almost every outfit, but hey, I can’t help but feel happy every time I look at my hands.
