1K Pins - Oh my sweet baby boy's birth announcement usually lives at the top of my trending list in the sidebar, which makes me so happy because I get to see his cute face every time I visit my site. It's the newest post in this list, so over time, I think it may win "most pinned".
1K Pins - This feather manicure went absolutely VIRAL at my thelooksforless.com blog (sold last year) sending over 10,000 in one day! There were no other feather manis (Google search) at the time using feathers rather than paint, and this how-to has been stolen and copied SO many times!
1K Pins - I keep this lasagna alfredo rollups recipe in regular rotation at my house and love to make it for company. The original recipe was vegetarian, so the meat is optional, but I love it with the addition of Italian sausage or chicken. These lasagna roll ups are huge and SO good!
1K Pins - I love lace nails for a girl's night out! This was my very first "non-polish" manicure. At the time, there were no other blogs featuring a lace mani tuturial, only an ad that I recreated (can't find the ad url), but now there are several nearly identical tutorials ;)
2K Pins - This slow cooker chicken tiki masala is pure comfort food in a bowl. Although the origin of this dish is Indian, chicken tikka masala is said to be the most popular dish in British restaurants, dubbed “a true British national dish”. The creamy orange sauce is tomato based with just a kick of spice.
3K Pins - This 4th of July manicure from 2012 took a bit of time and a bit of tape, but I LOVE the way it turned out! Check out the post for a super easy version of this mani, or see my 4th of July nails from 2013 for another easy, yet super spirited mani.
3K Pins - I recreated my popular Chanel Haute Couture nail art (coming soon in the countdown) in contrasting shades of blue for autism awareness month last year. This is such a fun and beautiful mani for a good cause that's very near and dear to my heart!
4K Pins - There have been several occasions when I would go to purchase a necklace online and have no idea where the length would come to on my neckline. This necklace lengths diagram removed all of the guesswork for me. Other diagrams include formal and informal table settings.
6K Pins - When the first pics of Chanel's Haute Couture Fall 2012 runway manicure started surfacing, I couldn't wait to recreate the look. This nail art turned out to be way more simple than I imagined and it's fun to recreate in other colors for a good cause or to show your team spirit.
10K Pins - I spent a couple of months looking for the perfect nail polish storage for my ever growing collection. I wanted clear storage so I could see everything, drawers for easy access, and a height no taller than my tallest bottles and these shoe drawers were perfect!
15K Pins - I don't think I knew about "the magic hour" when I took this gold sequins over a light pink cream polish pic. I just ran to the back of my yard to the one sunbeam left of the day and I LOVE the way it played off the gold sequin glitter. This was also my intro to sequined glitter that became huge shortly after.
Pinterest has a cool new feature for bloggers that allows us to check out our most pinned pages. I thought it would be fun to do a little compilation post showcasing my “best of” according to Pinterest. Some of these posts would probably be higher, but they originated at my thelooksforless.com blog before I sold it and moved the posts here. Their social numbers started fresh here after the move with a brand new url.
It was so fun to take a trip down memory lane with these pins. I’m still trying to improve my photography skills, but looking at some of these old posts is a fun reminder that I’m getting better. For the most part, I had an idea of what’s popular based on the few posts that live in my “Trending” block at the right sidebar, but there were a few surprises. Click around in the slideshow above to check out my Top 12 Most Pinned!
Keep up with all my pins as I pin them at Pinterest ;)
