If you haven't already discovered the magical world of Pinterest in your daily adventures, you're truly missing out. Pinterest is an innovative social media platform that allows users to organize, or "pin," thoughts, tips, ideas, recipes, and everything else you could possibly imagine onto tidy little boards, all on one profile for easy access whenever you need them. Think of it as visually bookmarking websites and articles on one online bulletin board, and you basically have Pinterest.
