Tried and true

Don' t you hate it when something is hyped up and you get so excited to
 try it but it fails miserably to live up to your expectations?

Yeah, me too.  
You learn pretty quick on Pinterest that just because something says pinner 
said it was the best thing ever, it does not necessarily ring true.
Does that mean you shouldn't try it?
Heck no!
You should still try it for yourself, just know that it might bomb instead of being "the bomb" ;)

Today I thought I'd share some of my Pinterest successes with you.

~ From my "In the Kitchen" Board ~

Snickerdoodle Blondies
These babies were pretty delicious, must have been all that butter and sugar ;)

Substitute Greek Yogurt
I've substituted Greek yogurt for Mayo and sour cream so far and I tell ya, 

I don't miss them at all!

Baked Onion Dip
This one is from one of my favorite bloggers...Ruthie!  
I made it for 2 parties over the holidays and it went quick! 
Simple to make but oh so good...perfect!

~ From my Luscious Locks Board ~

Honey and Oil hair treatment
This made my hair so sleek and shiny.  
I do this about every 2-3 weeks.

Double Bun pin-up
This was one of my favorite ways to wear my hair when it was longer.
 Took only minutes to put up and looked totally put together,
that's what I need in the mornings!

~ From my Beauty Board ~

Clean your makeup brushes
It's one of those little science experiments where your grossed out by how dirty your brushes are
but you secretly like seeing how much gunk is coming out.

Oatmeal and Baking soda exfoliant
This works way better than the St. Ives exfoliating scrub I was using.
It leaved my skin feeling so soft!  But only leave it on for a minute like the site says
...cause it can start to burn a bit after that.

So there you have it.
Those are some of my tried and true pins.
Hope you may have found something useful to try!

  1. I love these! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. FUN! I'm going to have to try the hair thing!! And also those yummy recipes! :) Thanks!

  3. So the honey and oil treatment works? I need to give that a try. And snickerdoodle blondies?!?!?! mmmmmm!!!

  4. i'm so going to try the hair treatment and the makeup brush one. tonight i made three ingredient biscuits from pinterest (flour, butter, cream cheese). they were AWFUL. i was so sad. i had high hopes and after the first bite the hope was gone! ; ) so whatever you do, don't try those!

  5. I really want to make those blondies! Pinned! I have only had one pinterest failure(chedder baked chicken) and it was just because I didn't like the taste of it. Scott thought it was pretty good though!

  6. Looks awesome! Can't wait to give some of those a try! Thanks!
