Spring Break Pinterest contest

Saturday, February 18, 2012

So speaking about sunglasses in the last post, a friend passed on this fun Pinterest contest for Spring Break I’d like to share. Basically, they give you topics to find pictures about and you “pin” them to a Pinterest board. Their instructions are way better than mine, so check out the site and you could win 2 free pairs of sunglasses AND a $50 Target Gift Card!

A Few Quick Tips on How to Use Pinterest

Tip #1: Go to Pinterest’s Goodies page and drag the “pin it” button into your internet browser toolbar so you can pin pictures from all over the web and not just Pinterest.

Tip #2: If you want to link to a specific site, just pin or repin your image to a board. Then click the image on your board and click “edit.” All you have to do from there is put your link in the “link” box and you’re done!

Tip #3: If you have a cool photo, you can upload them with the “+Add” link in the top right corner.

Tip #4: If you have a boring image and want to make it look really neat, play with it at Pixlr.com. They have some really neat effects that I used on the logo!

Tip #5: If you’re making an outfit, use Polyvore.com, trusted by pros everywhere. It takes about 10 minutes and looks great!
