It all started two years ago, and no one knew what the term “Blogger” would eventually lead to. The definition has been tweaked, and altered per the individuals content, some say that blogging is a hobby; some say it’s a career, and some just proclaim it in the sake of being recognized. The blogging scene reigned over fashion individuals, artists, musicians, and many more. A blogger would be a mother of two kids, a young individual with unattained interests, or an old man with remarkable archives – it literally can be anyone.

We at Perle, have truly found the pearls of the blogging scene right here in The Kingdom of Bahrain. Between being working women, designers, university tutors, and moms, these women have embraced the fashion blogging flair to a new extreme – adding their twists to every aspect, and every post.
