Last night, I had the pleasure of attending Pinterest Summer Party at their new San Francisco Headquarters in SOMA. I was pretty excited to attend as I loooove Pinterest and have been using it everyday since I signed up last year.
There were about 100 people at the party, about 50 were Pinterest employees and the other 50 were mixed with avid users and press. I wasn’t quite sure who was going to be there and I wasn’t able to bring guests, so it felt a little like going on a blind date with 100 people. But it was really nice to meet & mingle with other users and Pinterest employees who share the same mutual love (and addiction) for the site. And gladly, I also ran into Aaron of I Heart Luxe (who I met a few months back, and btw, just moved here from Canada – welcome!!!) and one of my favorite city gals, Klassy of Refinery29.
There were plenty of food and cocktails around and they also had several activity stands where we got to create custom postcards, temporary tattoos and personal terrarium, all while we savored on succulent cupcakes! Cool ideas, right? Can you guess where they got their party inspirations from? Yup, you guessed it, pins from Pinterest!
One of the highlights were also listening to some exciting announcements from the two co-founders Ben Silbermann and Evan Sharp, and if you’ve been following some tech news this morning, Pinterest finally released their new iPad app and Android app. That’s very good news for many people, I would say! And just in case you didn’t know, Pinterest is no longer an “invite-only” site…. which means if you’re not on Pinterest already, you need to get on it ASAP and there will be no hassel whatsoever! Guess I’ll see you there, right?! :)
And just a little fiy, I’ll be guest posting on this pinner‘s blog soon and spilling the beans on how Pinterest has helped me with my blogging and finding inspirations – fun stuff! Will definitely let you know when that is up. Hope you enjoyed my party snaps and happy hump day, friends!!
