The New Pinterest: Who to Follow

As a rapidly growing site, Pinterest is constantly experimenting with new features to ensure optimal customer experience. What is the latest? Pinterest has entered the world of ads. Fortunately, these ads are not added noise that detracts from your experience; they take the form of “promoted pins” and provide a way to introduce you to new brands, products, etc. based on your interests and whom you follow. In our opinion, this makes Pinterest an excellent discovery tool (just like TopShelf Clothes!) for new designers and trends! As an added bonus, Pinterest will also notify you when items you’ve pinned go on sale. If that’s not a reason to jump on the Pinterest train, what is? Today we are highlighting some of our favorite Pinners to help you build up those shopping lists and inspiration boards with new, exciting material.

Who to Follow on Pinterest: Nordstrom

Beauty Spot includes the latest beauty products to hit the store as well as celebrity makeup inspiration, how-to tutorials and inspirational quotes.
