Hi, I’m Lorna. Some of you may know me as the former editor and writer of DenimBlog.com, but I am still passionate about denim, having also founded The Jeans Blog, so if you love denim and found me through those searches, check out The Jeans Blog! Raindrops of Sapphire is my personal blog about my personal style, my life, fashion and things that I love, which definitely includes lots of denim, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, bags, accessories, Mulberry, Rebecca Minkoff and Christian Louboutin shoes etc. I update this blog about 2-3 times a week with my personal style photos, giveaways, Instagram photos, inspirations, personal life, health updates, new purchases and more!
I have lived in England all of my life and although I absolutely love the countryside and seeing endless fields, I do wish it could be sunnier here a lot of the time and not so grey! I do what I do because I am so passionate about fashion and life, and have loved premium denim since I was about 15 (I’m 29 now). Blogging is my passion and I love that it’s allowed me to create a community here online where I have developed friendships and connections with so many people. It comes from a place of love and I honestly don’t think I could be without fashion or blogging now! I’m the very proud owner of The Jeans Blog (like I mentioned) which is dedicated to everything denim and most recently my partner and I are working on another venture in the social media and blogging industry, to try and help others.
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a designer of some sort. I have designed a pair of jeans for a denim company called Prima Jeans (which you can see by clicking here) and I have done a collaboration with Paige Premium Denim as well! That was really exciting as the jeans we designed (the wash was called Lorna) were sold in quite a lot of places and sold out. I’m working on some other projects currently, but they are under wraps! I never know what I will eventually be as I didn’t know I wanted to be a blogger before I am now as it didn’t used to exist, so I’m just excited to be taking this journey and see what new things happen and where life takes me.
In general, I am a pretty shy person, very quiet and like to keep to myself, but very friendly and open to talking to anyone, so if you want to get in touch, please feel free to send me an email (on the contact page) or reach out via social media and I will write back to you as soon as I can.
My passion for denim and blogging has really given me some wonderful opportunities in my life; like going to London to meet Paige Adams-Geller and finding a very good friend in her. I got the chance to be featured in ASOS magazine as well which was amazing! Going to the Donna Ida Denim Clinic, attending Paige’s VIP Cocktail Party, doing loads of Press Days in London and more! I was voted Bath in Fashion’s blogger of the year for 2013, which was incredible, I was shortlisted for Best Designed Blog 2014 by Company Magazine too while The Jeans Blog was a finalist in the UK Blog Awards 2015. I have also been featured in LOOK magazine, ASOS, InStyle, Elle Korea and Bath Life magazine numerous times, written an article for InBath and various other publications as well as numerous blogs. Best of all though, in June of 2013, I got to attend LuisaViaRoma’s Firenze4Ever event in Florence in Italy! It was absolutely incredible and I loved every minute of it!
Brands I’ve worked with: Harvey Nichols, Valentino, ASOS, Warehouse, French Connection, J Brand, Citizens of Humanity, Shopbop, Revolve Clothing, Paige Denim, GUESS, Siwy, Goldsign, Frame Denim, Donna Ida, Trilogy, 7 For All Mankind, BLANK NYC, AG Jeans, JORD, Ultimo, Ann Summers, Gossard, Daniel Wellington, Debenhams, LuisaViaRoma, Topshop and many more.
I have got to meet some amazing people and readers through blogging though and you all make everything worthwhile. I can’t thank my fans/readers enough for that. I have been so grateful for everything so far and I really look forward to seeing what the future holds. I recently came out about having has the illness called M.E since I was 14 and you have all been so supportive with that too, which is amazing and you can read my M.E posts by clicking here. I hope you all enjoy Raindrops of Sapphire as blogging is my passion and being able to share it with you means a lot to me! Lorna =) xx.
