Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Meghan, a 23 year old dreamer from England. I’m passionate about all things veganism, self-growth and eco-friendly living, but I’ll get back to me in a little bit.
Here at Pearl of the sea, I have one mission – to give you the tools you need to start your vegan, eco-friendly and personal growth journeys. Learn to live a kinder life to all animals, the planet and yourself. I’m here to hold your hand through the tough parts and celebrate with you during your highs, but also to be your friend through every step of the way.
THE STORY BEHIND PEARL OF THE SEA
I want to tell you about what inspired me to create Pearl Of The Sea to be what it is now.
At the start of 2019, a tragic event happened that effected my family, but especially me, really badly. My cat was murdered by a group of boys that decided to take her life with a slingshot. They did it in the middle of the day and were seen walking behind their dog, who they had commanded to pick up our sweetheart and carry her in its mouth. Luckily a woman saw, shouted at them, which they then told their dog to drop Molly as they kicked her into a bush, AND they also ditched the poor dog too so you know, they were the lowest of the low. You may be able to tell that I still hold a lot of anger, which I most definitely do, it’s something that you don’t quite ever get over. Also, I like to talk about animals like they’re equals, because I believe they are.
But the anger I feel now is nowhere near to the extent of anger I felt then. I began to spiral into a dark place. I was filled with anger and negativity towards life and everybody around me, but also heavy sadness. It was probably one of the worst moments of my life. I never wanted to get out of bed or go outside, I stopped taking care of myself and I became a procrastinating queen.
Nevertheless, time passed and my heart healed, though never to be the same as before. It was then that I decided to focus on bettering myself and I started on my personal growth and healing journey. I vowed to fill my life up with as much compassion and kindness as I could. That’s when I re-branded my blog and turned it into what you see on your screen.
It broke my soul into a million pieces, but I picked them up and created a version of myself stronger than before.
SO … WHAT’S THERE TO KNOW ABOUT ME
Well, as you may have already been able to tell, I love animals and our planet. I’m one of those people that loves animals more than humans.
Outside of running my blog, sustainable store and YouTube channel, I am in pursuit of my dream of becoming an author. I’m currently trying to get an agent for my children’s book series and after doing some recent revisions, I’m pretty confident that I will find somebody who believes in me and my characters.
I am a creative soul and a dreamer who often has her head in the clouds. I’m a lover of of space, sunsets and our moon (she’s a beauty). I love to read (huge book worm over here), move my body and I’m a proud plant mum. I’m Disney obsessive and forever a bit of a fangirl, more than I like to admit, especially when it comes to Stranger Things and Disney.
I’m passionate about travelling (especially responsible travel), so expect to see the odd responsible travel related post outside of veganism, eco-friendly living and personal growth. I’m in a constant love affair with the sea, hence the coastal vibes of my blog, and don’t even get me started on my obsession with stationary. Who else has a ton of notebooks that look too good to actually use?
As I mentioned, I set out on my journey of self-growth last year and I haven’t looked back. I’ve learnt a lot and I’ve grown a lot; now I want to help you do the same. I’ve learnt to change things about myself that I’ve struggled with for years (mainly my self talk and ability to be productive), and I’ve been able to accept and even love parts about myself I never thought I could. It’s a journey, one that is never truly over, and having people to go along it with you makes it so much easier.
START YOUR WEEK OFF RIGHT
Start your week off right is an online mini-magazine that I publish every other Sunday. Each one is filled with motivational content to help, you guessed it, start your week off right. My aim is to help fuel you to start the beginning of your week off with inspiration, productivity and of course, good vibes. Which hopefully stays with you for the rest of your week.

Nothing in life is impossible, especially when you have like minded people along for the ride with you. So let’s all head on this journey of self-growth, eco-friendly living and veganism together. You’ve got everything you need to do it. I’m just here to give you a nudge in the right direction.
