BLOGGER UPDATE: Summer in Florida

The last month has been a super weird and exciting time. Florida has kept me busy, happy and full of excitement as I embark on new adventures with friends and meeting tons of people from around the world. Whenever something life changing happens, like a move or a relocation, routines and habits change and I can’t say I haven’t fallen victim to this.

BLOGGER UPDATE: Summer in Florida - Pearls and Polkadots

Ever since I began Pearls and Polkadots, it has been my life. I think about blogging, new ideas, plan collaborations and write in advance so that I have everything organized. It took moving to Florida to make me realize that sometimes you have to close the laptop, leave the blogging behind and go out and have FUN.

This is the first month that I have fallen really behind with Pearls and Polkadots. However, I have found it refreshing to think about sunshine, palm trees and new friends. Even better, when I do think of a blog post, and take my time writing it…I feel amazing.

I feel amazing because it is something that I truly worked hard on. Something that I channeled my creative juices into and really care about sharing with all of you.

With that said, I would never want my blogging to become a chore or a task. I love blogging – it has truly changed my life.

Before I moved to Florida, I limited my blog posts to three times per week. I have now taken the guidelines and rules away. I will post when I post, and that will be okay because it will be authentic and something I truly want to post about.

I encourage all of my blogging friends to do the same – post when you want to post. Don’t post for statistics. Don’t post for ratings. Post because it makes you feel amazing. Otherwise, you will be cuffed to your computer, and no one wants to live like that.

The Pretty Faces and Flowers of Epcot

It has officially been one week (and a bit) since I touched down in Orlando, Florida and started my journey working for the mouse. I can’t wait for this adventure to take off soarin’ and for the Disney magic to touch my heart in every way possible. I can tell you now that Walt Disney World really is the happiest place on earth.

Last week, a few of my gorgeous new friends and I kicked off our journey beginning with Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. Once a year, Epcot puts on a fabulous display of colourful flowers and hedge designs and we just so happened to be arriving during the festival!

Epcot is a pretty wide spread park and in my opinion, really fun for adults. Not only do you get to experience worlds of culture, pretty gardens and great food, the atmosphere is set more for the older age group, rather than the kiddies. It is definitely a place I love to spend time. My favourite part about this park is that you can literally travel around the park in an hour – you see so many different dishes and decor, from fruit sushi to yummy Moroccan food – simply amazing.

As you can probably tell, we had a pretty fun day/night at Epcot! It was absolutely gorgeous and the food was amazing. My favourite is a tie between the California maki rolls in the Japan pavilion and the chocolate macaron ice cream sandwich in France – both so well done and totally worth  the money!!

There is a little magic in every park, but in Epcot there is magic, food, and culture – three things that compliment each other very well.

What’s another magical thing? I get to be on this journey with another one of my fab bloggers – Annie from FabIncBlog and a truly unique and talented photographer and vlogger – Jessica from Jess Ruby and Jessica Ruxton Photography
