My Newest Addiction: Pinterest

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in DIY, Life, Uncategorized

Have you ever felt like being crafty but don’t have a creative bone in your body? Or maybe you’re really into fashion and love keeping up to date with all the latest fashions. Well Pinterest is an amazing website where you get to search a ton of categories and you can “pin” them onto your own board with your own certain sections for different pins. You can go back and look at all the things you have pinned from days or months ago so easily, you won’t be spending hours looking for the one recipe! Here are just some of the many categories Pinterest offers.


For example, if you were planning a wedding you could go to the wedding category and look at all of the different wedding ideas other people have pinned. There will be everything from flower arrangements, to fun bridal party pictures that you can pin onto your own board and come back to later for ideas! (By clicking on any of the pictures in this blog it will forward you to that pin from Pinterest, try it out!)


This site has everything! My favorite section (aside from woman’s fashions) is the Do It Yourself category. You can scan through all the different craft ideas or search ones specifically. For example, you can can get instructions on how to create words on a black mat with bronze push pins…


….or how to make beautiful picture frames as a gift!! If you want to give someone something homemade as a house warming gift or even a birthday present, search through the DIY section and you will find so many amazing activities to not only help you save money but they are fun! It always feels nice to give someone a handmade gift that you know they can cherish for years.


Maybe you love to cook and you are always looking online for new recipes to try out, well Pinterest also has a food category with thousands of different recipes! If you want to learn how to make a delicious baked potato soup for instance, they have a recipe for that! Throwing a party at your house? Search through the food section and you will come across all different types of simple and easy to make treats that will have everyone begging for more! The recipes are easy to follow and you will come across new things you’ve never seen before!


Pinterest is an amazing site that you can spend hours upon hours on. From home decorating, to tattoo ideas and more, it is so convenient to have everything on one site. If you love searching through ideas and trying out new crafts or activities, then I highly suggest checking out Pinterest.  I promise you that you will instantly become hooked!

New Year’s Resolution

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Life, Uncategorized

The year is slowly coming to a close, and while some are planning on how they will start off the New Year on the right foot, others are reflecting on the past 365 days. What was the best decision you made this year? Should you have done something differently? If you could go back and change one thing, what would it be? Some will reflect on the mistakes they’ve made in the past year or just set goals for themselves for the New Year, more commonly known as ”New Year’s Resolutions”. Here are some of the top resolutions throughout the years:

  • Lose Weight and Get Fit
  • Quit Smoking
  • Learn Something New
  • Eat Healthier and Diet
  • Get Out of Debt and Save Money
  • Spend More Time with Family
  • Travel to New Places
  • Be Less Stressed
  • Volunteer
  • Drink Less

While there are some who use the New Year as a clean slate, others don’t care much for making resolutions. Every year I tell myself I am going to get fit and healthy, but then a few weeks in I remember I have no self control and that piece of chocolate cake looks really delicious. Gym’s suddenly become more crowded after the New Year for a few weeks or so, and then people eventually give up and say “I’ll try again next year.” Also, don’t be surprised if you see family and friends striving to be healthy by cutting out junk food or trying to quit smoking cigarettes. I always give the highest respect to people who take charge and change their habits because to them it could be life or death. Looking back at the past year, people wonder how they can make the next year one of the best. Some people set goals such as moving to another state of country just to experience the world while they still can. Others set smaller goals like being nicer to certain people, or finally getting that promotion they’ve been wanting. Something I have noticed the past year is that a lot of people who are trying to get healthy is that they will train for months and months and then compete in a marathon or a 5k. To them, completing that race is the ultimate goal. If they complete it, they know that they have achieved a resolution. With that being said, why not set a small goal for yourself?! Even something as little as learning how to save your money, or to learn a new trait. Join a sports team, apply for a job you thought you would never get just because, you never know what could happen. There is no better feeling that achieving a goal you never thought you could. I hope everyone has a fantastic New Years and I cant wait to continue blogging with you in 2014!!
