the good, the bad, the ugly

i was talking to some people at work the other day about pinterest.
one lady said something to this extent
"i spend hours on pinterest, yet i never try any of the crafts, recipes, hair styles etc. etc."
and it got me thinking of all the things i have tried.
some successes, some failures
so i thought i'd share.

the good.
1. cutting your apple, and then securing it with a rubberband so it doesn't go brown.
i do this quite often when i pack my lunch for school.


2. i made these red velvet oreos last night for mi familia, and they were quite delicious.


3. i got this idea off pinterest, but changed it a little.
so fun and cute for a bachelorette party, i will probably use it again.


my version

back

4. i got this idea of pinterest and re created it.



the bad.
1. have you every tried french braiding your hair upside down? it is not easy.
FAIL.

2. i love snickerdoodles and i love pumpkin, so i thought this recipe would be divine.
oh i was so wrong.
they were disgusting. so dense and tasted like poop.

FAIL.

3. no heat curls.
i woke up with an afro. literally.


my sad attempt.
FAIL.

have you had any good/bad/ugly outcomes from pinterest?
let's hear about them.

love,
amyLynn

I attempted to make the "rainbow cake in a jar" I'm sure you've seen it on Pinterest. It was a total failure because after I baked the cake, the colors got really dull and turned a little brown. It was not at all like the picture on pinterest.

I've never thought of the rubber band around the apple trick!! I'm totally doing that next time. I hate eating brown apples for lunch! GOODBYE to that!

I attempted the sock bun curls and no good - nothing. But the roll your hair in socks and tie them worked! Your blog is great!!
