#FlashbackFridays: 3 Key Tips to Purchasing the Perfect Tote!

There is something about February that makes me so happy – Valentine’s Day, Family Day, and of course, Reading week (which means one full week off school, yay!). Most importantly, this weekend is going to be full of dance and performance since it is my very last dance showcase of my university career (tearing up here…). It’s such a month full of happiness, and so I am keeping happy today because I get to show you another updated post of mine! Yup, that’s right, I went all the way back to February 2015 to update some posts and I am sharing one of those with you today!

#FlashbackFridays: 3 Key Tips to Purchasing the Perfect Tote! - Pearls and Polkadots

I may be a bag lady…

When I first published this post on February 25, 2015, I was sharing some of my recent purchases from Aldo. Why? Well, at the time, I was obsessed with the accessory shop and it was all I could think about. However, while updating the post, I figured I would add a little more meat to the bones of the post and beefed it up with some general rules for purchasing the perfect tote! So, I did a little more than reformatting for this one, but nevertheless, here it is:

3 Key Tips to Purchasing the Perfect Tote!

Happy Weekend everybody!

#FlashbackFridays: Charity Ball 2015

Today is a pretty exciting day because it is basically university prom. Well, it’s called “Charity Ball” and this year (like every year), it is for a great cause. I love these events because you get to dress up, have a great night out with friends and raise money for a charity who needs it! This year is particularly special because it is the last ball we are going to go to as university students since we are all graduating (which is why it is basically prom).

Looking all the way back…

Last year, Pearls and Polkadots was just getting started and charity ball was one of the highlights of the semester. So naturally, I wrote a post to break down the look that I dawned that evening. On February 6, 2015, I released the post breaking down my outfit of the night. So SINCE tonight is Charity Ball 2016, I thought it would be cool to flashback to last year and reminisce!

After making a few updates (formatting, and whatnot), here we are:

#FlashbackFridays: Happy Launch Day!

I’m feeling very nostalgic today. Maybe it’s because I applied for graduation this week, or maybe it’s because my one year blogging anniversary just passed last Saturday. In keeping with this new series of mine, I wanted to take a look back to my launch post. As most of you know, I have been going back and revamping my posts, formatting them, updating them to fit with the style of my blog now since I revamped my theme. Well, same goes for my launch post and I am sharing it with you today!

(I got a little photo happy)

Happy One Year Anniversary!

I first officially launched Pearls and Polkadots on January 16,2015 after a couple of weeks of accumulating posts, getting a feel for WordPress and getting familiar with my niche. When I say launch, I don’t actually mean going live. I technically went live on January 1, 2015. However, releasing and announcing it to friends, families and followers happened on the 16th! This week I revisited, reformatted and looked over it…and here it is:

#FlashbackFridays: Pairing an Oxford with a Sleeveless Dress

Wow that week went by quickly! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was trudging through the winter wonderland outside to my Monday morning English class! I can already feel the next few months zooming by. I mean, can you believe that Pearls and Polkadots turns ONE tomorrow!? I sure can’t…

I am loving my no-class Fridays because I get to use the day to sleep, catch up on assignments and watch the shows that I missed during the week (The Bachelor). What I also get to do is update my old blog posts. Each week, I am flashing back a whole year and updating the post that I posted in the month from the previous year!

#FlashbackFridays: Pairing and Oxford with a Sleeveless Dress

TA-DA!

I wrote this on January 22, 2015 when I was just getting a feel for blogging. Funny enough, this was the first post that got major hits…I’m talking in the thousands of views! I was so excited being extremely new to blogging (Pearls and Polkadots was only 6 days old)…but it was too good to be true. It turned out to be lots and lots of spam that was driving my hit count up. This was the post that made me get spam filters for my comments and views.

After making a few updates (formatting, and whatnot), here we are:

#FlashbackFridays: My Love for Polka dots

HAPPY FRI-YAY EVERYBODY!

Fridays are probably my favourite day of the week! I have no class on Fridays this semester so it has left me plenty of time to update Pearls and Polkadots. What do I mean by update exactly? Well over the holidays, I was reading my posts from a whole year ago. It is amazing to see how much your writing style has changed in a whole year. However, I like the idea of my posts being uniform…
