real life questions: is pinterest the devil?

“Pinterest: The Visual Discovery tool” aka … Satan???

Don’t get me wrong, I love Pinterest so much (too much), but no one ever said the devil wasn’t pretty.

Basically I got on Pinterest for the first time in a while to work on a Dress History assignment – yes, I get to pin things for school. Saweeet.
EXCEPT for the fact that it rekindled my barely-suppressed urge to constantly online shop. Duh, that’s what Pinterest is for. It’s just a hub of recipes and crafts and, if you’re anything like me, a helpful organizational tool for your out-of-control online shopping addiction.

I love getting outfit, décor, and travel inspiration from Pinterest… and it does help me compare prices super easily when I actually need to buy something.

But also… IS IT THE DEVIL 

These Gold Platforms were on my Shoes board for so long that I could no longer live without them. Happy birthday to me 3 months early...

??!??!????!!!!!!!

Where’s the line between inspiration and envy? We’ve all had those pangs of jealous annoyance at the internet people who seemingly have enough time and energy to make themselves look beautiful AND decorate their rooms perfectly AND craft ridiculously adorable and time-consuming things for their perfectly monogrammed babies. I mean, are you exhausted or a physics-defying unicorn or what?
Cuz ain’t nobody I know got time for all of that.

Someone please tell me how to stop spending so much money. 
But really please don’t because I already know all the things you’ll say and hearing you say them will make me worse when I ignore my conscience & my bank account & you.

What's going on here? I'll never know, but it looks cool. "Oh, don't mind me, I'll just be hiding my perfectly made-up face & inverted french braid hair in these Christmas trees..."
