Damn You, Pinterest!

So I finally got onto Pinterest.

I swore I wasn't going to get on there due to it's addictive nature, but I caved one day and now I have fallen victim to it's evil clutches.

How else could I have found one thousand different projects that I will never do? Or how about those cute party ideas for the festive bashes I will never throw?

Or the outfits that should be filling my closet. sigh

I think that is the worst. I used to shop for clothes so much that looking at all the clothes is killing me a little bit.

Thank goodness I set up weight loss rewards for myself at the first of the year. I set aside all the gift cards that I recieved for Christmas to use as incentives to lose the weight I put on. Did you know it is possible to put on twenty pounds in only two months? Seriously! I think I deserve a medal or something.

Anyway, I have dropped the first ten pounds, now I can use one of my gift cards. This is such a big deal. I am agonizing over what to buy. I have dozens of items flagged between my inbox, Pinterest, polyvore and Amazon.

The good news is, that in the last six months, I have learned a lot about the quality of clothes.
I noticed which ones wore out and have already been removed from my closet and suprisingly which ones are still there.
I have learned that if you drink enough, even the most painful shoes become bearable if they make your legs look longer.
I have learned to let go of items that I think I love, but really only love the idea of.
White leggings, I am talking to you.

What about you? Do you have secrets in your closet that you would never wear, but can't seem to let go?
