“pearlsa” “pearlsa”

I am a girl mired in quotidian details of a type 1 diabetic. I love cooking and wandering, I am a photographer, a health advocate, a geek, a daughter and sister.

Needles and Thyme is written, edited and photographed by me, unless stated otherwise.

My focus is growing into the future with health, grace and beauty. I am Pearlsa Bintomani.
