“We are excited to launch My Real Life Pinterest for the first time in New Zealand, right here at The Base and engage with our public in a way that hasn’t been done before,” says Angela Young, marketing manager at The Base.

‘My Real Life Pinterest’ will be a hybrid of real time and online social media interaction, including instant photo sharing of the Pinterest boards created by the public.
