The Best Accounts to Follow on Pinterest
Every social media network is a little bit different, and therefore, each has its own accounts that you have to follow. Pinterest, the social media platform that caters more toward the crafty DIY-minded, is one of the best places to get new ideas for cooking, decorating, and creating. While much of the fun of Pinterest comes in finding the accounts that best suit your interests, these accounts will help get you started.
For Those Who Feel Crafty
One of the most popular uses of Pinterest comes in sharing tips for folks who can never have enough life hacks. While you might remember Lauren Conrad for her star turn on MTV soap show “The Hills,” she’s leveraged her fame into having one of the biggest home DIY brands out there at the moment. While the account shares everything from fitness advice to recommended reads, home projects are where it truly shines. Also worth checking out in this category are Etsy, Brightnest, and P.S. – I Made This.
For Those Who Make the Kitchen Their Home
Pinterest is also immensely popular among the more culinary-minded, and if you want to salivate over artistic photos of some awesome-looking food, there are a few places you can do that. Minimalist Baker is perfect for those who like to keep things simple, while Cara from Big Girls, Small Kitchen has great recipes for those on a budget. Buzzfeed’s Buzzfeed Food and Tasty accounts are also great follows if you’re into ingenious, photo-ready recipes.
For Those Who Like to Travel
Somewhat surprisingly, Pinterest also makes for a wonderful resource if you’re in the midst of planning your next vacation. One of the best travel-related Pinterest accounts, Travel + Leisure, has some good travel-related boards, including Travel Tips, which does exactly what it does on the box. From airplane etiquette to tips on what to do in London, this board covers all sorts of travel-related topics. For those with permanent wanderlust, another good account worth following is Jetsetter, which regularly posts enticing photos of exotic locales.
For Those Who Like to Look Pretty
There’s little question that, if you’re serious about your looks, you’re usually going to have to pay a pretty penny, make a lot of mistakes, or both. That’s why Pinterest accounts detailing makeup tutorials and cheap beauty hacks have become a popular part of the site. Need to get more mileage out of your makeup? Makeup.com has all the boards and tutorials you’re looking for. Need a new way to style your hair? Check out Hair Romance. Need some insight into today’s fashion trends? StylewithClass, Refinery29, and EmilyandMeritt are among the best for style tips.
These accounts will definitely get you started on your Pinterest journey, but more likely than not, you’ll be overloaded by just how much content there is and how many great accounts there are to follow. Best of all, it’s super easy to find whatever interest you: simply type your keywords into the search bar at the top of the site, and away you go!
