Long time, no see.

I’ve been off of Pinterest and this site due to illness and relocating. Thanks for all your emails checking in with how I was doing. I appreciate you!

I was hoping that Pinterest would have something new to show me. However, a quick flip through the Popular section sadly proved those damned mustaches are still in vogue.

Also:

Wrapping your legs around your man in your cowboy boots and wedding dress is still a thing. Unfortunately.

Many of you (like the pinner of the image above) are still not linking to the original source of the images you pin. Pinners, it’s so easy – if you don’t know the original source, do a little research and try to find it. Don’t post something linking back to a random Tumblr blog who was as lazy as you are about crediting the proper source. Bad pinner, no biscuit!

Messy buns, ombre hair, and sock buns are still popular. So are messy ombre sock buns. Unfortunately.

Painting mason jars is still a thing.

So is putting them on your wedding invitations, turning them into a soap dispenser, making them into goblets, and baking stuff in them. Face it, folks, they are never going away.

Neither are peplums, which are now a wedding trend.

You’re still pinning “thinspiration”, but now Pinterest is trying to help you deal with your shit, as this message pops up along with your thinspiration pins.

In another effort to ‘help’ you, Pinterest is removing many pins that contain nudity. This pin of an Oreo cookie ad that I pinned in April of 2012 was recently removed for nudity, which Pinterest says it doesn’t allow on the site.

Got Oreo Ad

Yes, I can see how a picture of a breastfeeding baby is far more offensive than people in their CK underwear, or this American Apparel ad. Way to go, Pinterest Nudity Police.

I wonder if this sort of twisted logic contributes to half of moms on Pinterest saying it stresses them out.

And fashion bloggers are still standing pigeon-toed.
