Pintrest is possibly our new favourite thing to do online at the moment. Somewhere in between Tumblr and Flickr, Pintrest is basically an online pin board where you post what's inspiring you and share it with your friends.


The way it works is that you sign up to the site and check out other people's boards and comment, like and repin the things you love onto your own board. You can also add images from elsewhere online or upload your own.


Pintrest is really great for getting inspiration on everything from fashion to photography, event planning to food. No wonder it's spreading quickly amongst creative types, who love the fact that you can search a specific item or trend and see the best photos from the whole Pintrest community.


Our favourite part is that you can have group boards so you and your friends can all add to them – perfect for planning a party, sharing the new style trends or just for bouncing ideas around.


Take a look and  let us know if you set up your own! We'd love to take a look…
