Eff You, Pinterest.

by Meredith on June 4, 2013

I never really make anything I pin on Pinterest.

Mainly because I fail miserably at waterfall braids or anything that requires painting in the lines. But I pin things like a mother fucker. One day my house will look like my pins, and my hair will be styled in a different way every single day.

However, when I saw this anti-cellulite coffee scrub, I decided it couldn’t be that hard to do. I can read. I can combine 3/4 cups of coffee grounds with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and a dash of olive oil.

Any moron can make that.

I made the scrub. I rubbed it all over my whole body. I reeked of coffee, but I didn’t care, because CELLULITE REMOVAL, YOU GUYS!

BUT HERE IS THE THING!

You have to wash the scrub off.

And when you wash a coffee scrub off… you make coffee… in your bathtub.

It looked like someone threw a spitter all over the walls and pooped and peed in the water. You know, because your tub doesn’t drain very fast when there are coffee grounds everywhere.

It took me hours to clean up.

And I still have cellulite.

Have you ever had a Pinterest disaster? Do people actually make things successfully from pins?

Well, I bet your skin looks a little tanned and is well-exfoliated, anyway. Spray off with the hose near your flower beds or compost heap (ha ha ha ha) next time. Stupid Pinterest.

Larissa, I was going to say the same thing about hosing off near the flowers. Too funny.

I have a pintrest board labeled “Done *trumpet fanfare*” for when I actually do something I found on there with notes for things to change in the recipes and such. I feel extra accomplished if I can repin something to that board.

OMG! Well thanks for the warning! I pretty much fail and anything I try but I keep pinning away. I’m either an idiot or optimist.
