How to get a million Pinterest followers by Disneyrollergirl

Somehow, I have amassed quite the ridiculous number of Pinterest followers. Not sure how I made the magic million, but it could be the hours and hours I spend lost in a Pinterest vortex repinning photos of Chanel flatlays punk icons and hunting for the perfect gentlewomanly shoes.
