13 Things I Learned When I Lived According to Pinterest's Popular Page

January 27, 2015 4 min read

If you are like me, then you enjoy a little Pinterest exploring every morning (or evening) as part of your daily routine. I am guilty of this!

Whenever I want to cook something new for dinner, I turn to Pinterest. My son is turning one year old in a month so what do I do? Turn to Pinterest for party ideas. I burned my hand baking chicken. Pinterest has a cure for it all, it seems.

So many ladies dream of what it would be like to live according to their Pinterest page, so I decided to try it out.

How many of you have actually tried attempt many of the things you've repinned?

I started at Pinterest's "Popular" page and picked out a few things to do from each category. I decided to live my life according to Pinterest.

This is what I learned:

1. I didn't have to throw all of my old towels away after all.

I have seen this tutorial for like two years. And as I was doing a load of laundry one day, I noticed my towels starting to smell funny. What a better time than to try this out!

The verdict? It works!

I think I enjoyed my "new" towels a little too much..

2. I realized that I could halfway manage a makeup tutorial on my own.

I had great success for this makeup look! I thought I got it right on, minus all the shadowing below the eyes that I decided to opt out on. I am no makeup pro and if I were to try that, I would've come out looking like a racoon!

3. I gave myself a temporary tattoo in a location that I had been wanting.. and decided I didn't want anything there, ever. But, hey this tutorial totally worked!

 0 I also found this idea to be perfect for my son as we are getting ready to go to Disney World on our first family vacation.


 4. I felt like a lumberjack's wife. After seeing this adorable outfit, I instantly thought of the red & blue plaid button up hanging in my closet that I have been neglecting. I didn't care for the look after seeing myself in it-the girl in the photo certainly pulls it off a LOT better than I did! Maybe it was the rain boots??



(PS. I have had this damn pumpkin since October of last year. It still looks brand new... wtf)

5. I learned to countour my face..  sort of.

I am no pro-makeup artist by ANY means. Most of the time, I don't have makeup on. I kept seeing all of these crazy contouring transformations so I decided to give it a try myself. I am not sure if I just didn't do it correctly or go bold enough, but I couldn't tell a huge difference really.

6. I learned how to keep my keepsakes together.

After seeing the Pinterest tutorial below, I decided to finally get my son's stuff together and make a shadow box with all of our things from birth day at the hospital. I used the photo below as inspiration and put my own spin on things.I was super happy with my box.

7. Pinterest can actually be good for a marriage.

After seeing countless date ideas, I found this tutorial on making a "date jar" for nights when you are bored with simply nothing to do. Mine isn't as colourful as the one in the Pinterest tutorial, but it was fun making it since in the process, I started of coming up with more and more ideas that we had been missing out on.

My jar wasn't as "happy looking" and colorful, but it still serves its purpose.

8. Pinterest taught me how to save my avocados.

This past week, avocados were on a super sale.. so I ended up buying over ten of them.Then, the next day, they were all freaking ripe. Shit.What did I do next? I found the tutorial below and gave it a whirl.The verdict? It works.

9. Pinterest taught me how to make recycled workout gear.

Got old shirts laying around? You can easily recycle them into something that you could actually use-like a workout tank. It was easy and took less than 5 minutes or so to do. No sewing required.

10. Pinterest made me feel like a real baker.

11. Pinterest is helpful for parents. 

My son loved this sensory board that I made him via this tutorial. He plays with it nonstop. I think my favourite aspect of Pinterest is the crafts-by far!

Yeah... still a work in progress!

12. Faking big lips is harder than it looks.

ass="separator">I tried out a Kylie Jenner lip tutorial. I didn't quite feel like I got the look down. After all it was my first time trying this. Instead, it looked as if I sipped on hot cocoa all day and forgot to wipe my lips.

13. Nail Marbeling.... No.

I learned a lot from living on Pinterest, and honestly, it is a really good thing-but can be widely addictive! You can pretty much learn how to do anything, make anything, cook anything etc. If you are totally clueless-turn to Pinterest!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
