    This is a great idea! Do you notice any increase in your Instagram engagement after posting it on Pinterest? 💗

    • 10/02/2018 / 9:15 pm

      There is a small bit of engagement increase since doing this but I’ve only popped up about 3 pictures from my Instagram.
      This comment has actually reminded me I need to put on some more haha!
