Craft ideas, cocktail recipes and 25 ways to tie a scarf…oh my!

With more than 30 billion  — yes, BILLION — pins on Pinterest, women clearly spend a lot of time on the social network.  We all know that what we pin reflects on us, but what about the Pinterest usernames that we choose?  In the “real” world, we introduce ourselves with a handshake or a smile; in the world of social media, however, our username often serves as the all-important first impression.  To get an idea of what fellow Pinners may think of us based on our usernames, let’s take a look at this translation guide:
