Pinterest is filled with seemly endless inspiration, recipes, and home remedies. Some pins I have tried and loved and others were nothing more than a waste of time and money.
After stumbling across this hilarious blog Pinstrosity, I learned I was not alone and I thought I should share some of my own misses as well.
Let's start with food:
This is the picture of the only 2 ingredient recipe for pineapple angel food muffins. Looks good right? I thought so as well and sounded so easy- only 2 ingredients and the pin also boasted to be "fat free"!
I followed the instructions as directed and combined the two ingredients which whipped up into an almost science experiment consistency. Not dissuaded, I continued and filled the cupcake tins and baked for 350 for 40 minutes or until golden brown. I was left with dry and overflowing muffins that not only looked disgusting but tasted awful too. Not to mention this recipe could have made at least 4 trays of 12!
My advice is too not follow any pins that do not link to an actual web page. I have never seemed to have any luck with this type and it's also a disadvantage since you cannot read any feedback, reviews, etc.
Another Crappy Recipe:
Chipolte at home and healthy!? Yes please! So I tried this "Copy Cat, Skinny Barbacoa Beef" and should be renamed to Barbacoa BARF! This one had tons of rave reviews.....however my husband and I couldn't even stand the smell of it! This was a HUGE waste of ingredients, time, and left me scrambling to find something else to make for dinner last minute.
Around the house tip:
This tip was to soak old paint brushes in vinegar for 30 minutes and they would be "as good as new!"
Wrong! Not only did I waste my time and a bottle of vinegar- I had to wash out the gross smelling paint brushes. My brushes looked exactly the same after as they did pre-vinegar.
Simply flat iron over twisted sections of dry hair for easy beach waves! WOW! Sounds to easy- well because it doesn't work. No other way around this one, just really doesn't work!
Ohh looks sooo easy! And this one comes from Martha's people at Real Simple? Just had to try!!! Simply dip your wet nails into a bowl of could ice water and just like magic they dry! NOT! There is a reason you don't see this at any salons, because it doesn't dry your polish it just f*cks it all up!
Hope you enjoyed my Pinterest Fails....I'm sure there will be more to come!! Feel free to comment with your fails :)
