Good News/Bad News

Where have I been for the past 6 months? Well, I've been feeling a bit stagnant on the blogging front for a long time now. I started P for Pearl when I was 17 after being really inspired by all the wonderful blogs I read like Rhiannon's & Tavi's blogs. Ever since, this blog has helped me more ways that I can imagine. I got to meet so many wonderful people, made amazing friends, crazy blogger events and even got my first job as a graphic designer through this blog. For that I'll be ever so grateful. I'm glad I took the step to blog but now I feel like things need to move on. I'm definitely not the same person I was when I was 17. My fashion choices, likes and dislikes, routines - all of it has evolved so much that I felt stuck in a rut. P for Pearl remains an archive of my younger self and that's why I won't be deleting this blog but keeping it as a remembrance. I've invested so much time and effort writing blog posts and photographing outfits and my travels that I feel it would be unfair to get rid of it all.

The good news is I've started a new venture. A blog called Belle Fleur. Something that I've been developing since a year now. A blog that is a fresh start and wholly mirrors my personality and aesthetic in every way possible. I'm still the same just a tad bit different. There are two new posts on the blog. I hope you will follow me on this new adventure. A new life in New Zealand and my love for eco-friendly living. You can expect a lot more heart to heart conversations, my experiences living in a new country, movie and tv recommendations as well as some of the same things that I used to blog about on here like beauty reviews and outfit posts. This time I'm blogging because I want to and not out of necessity. It's always been that way for me and I wouldn't wish it any other way. You can follow me on Bloglovin' here to keep track of new posts or sign up for email alerts below. Lots of love, xx


How To Pack Your Life In A Suitcase

For a person who hates packing, the process of moving to New Zealand changed me. I was a lot more organised and looked up packing hacks, made lists and researched a whole lot before packing my belongings. I had to part with a lot of my things and stick to stuff that I NEEDED and found absolutely necessary for my year abroad. Along my packing process, that lasted a whole week, I learnt that it's ok to leave some things behind and move forward. Parting with a majority of your wardrobe can be scary. If you're a recent high-school grad moving to college or if you're someone like me moving to a whole new country, you might find this helpful. I made sure that I packed everything I needed within my baggage limit! Impossible? It's easier than you think!


2015 : Free Wallpaper

With a new year comes new possibilities. Yeah I just thought of that and it sounded cleverer in my head but anyway, how's 2015 treating everybody so far? Mine's been beyond excellent. Little joys like going grocery shopping at the local superette, swimming in the ocean or just making new friends at a concert (haven't you seen my Instagram lately? tsk!) just makes me so grateful for everything. I've been incredibly lucky since I moved to New Zealand. I've seen most of the North Island plus an impending trip to Hobbiton this weekend. I hope everyone's having a great January and thanks for sticking around!

As a token of appreciation you can download this image as a desktop wallpaper to remind you that 2015 is the year of possibilities. At least that's what I'd like to think! The link is after the jump!



It's been quiet here on the blog primarily because I was busy MOVING TO NEW ZEALAND. If you've been following my Instagram closely, you'll notice the sudden surge in landscape pictures owing to goddamn beautiful NZ. I'll be studying Business for a year in Auckland. It's been 2 weeks so far & I'm soaking in every minute of every day. It was tough to part with most of my things but I'm glad that I get to start afresh with basically a capsule wardrobe. Don't worry though, I'll be back with some posts & of course a LOT of travel posts.

Welcome to my journey through Middle Earth. :)
