Hi, I’m Lorna Burford =)


Hi, I’m Lorna. I’m the editor and a writer of DenimBlog.com and I am very passionate about denim! This 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, bags, accessories, Mulberry, Rebecca Minkoff and Christian Louboutin shoes etc. I update this blog about 4 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 have been writing on DenimBlog for around 7 years now and I love it! I do it because I am so passionate about fashion and have loved premium denim since I was about 15 (I’m 27 now). Blogging is my passion and about 3 years ago I set up a new venture, for all things fashion, called The Fashion Supernova, or TFS for short. It’s my other website which is for everything fashion related and non personal. I honestly don’t think I could be without fashion! I’m also the very proud owner of The Jeans Blog, which is dedicated to everything denim and most recently my partner and I set up our own luxury and designer fashion blog, called Fashion Runway!

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 new 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!

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) 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 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.

    Hi Lorna! I saw the link to your blog on the Purse Forum but I remember you from the old days on the Honest Forum before the Denim Blog! (My HF name was Surfsup). Great to see you and read your blogs! You guys are doing great on Denim Blog, I am really impressed! I love the jeans you designed for Prima Jeans! I wish you the best and look forward to reading more of your work!

    Take care,

    • Lorna August 7, 2010 / 3:06 am

      Hi Nicole :)
      I remember you too, that was such a long time ago now! Thank you so much for the compliments, that’s really kind of you :) I’m glad you like DenimBlog too. I don’t frequent the denim forums anymore, I only go on TPF now. And thank you for the nice words about my Prima Jeans, that really means a lot to me! Are you still into denim?

  7. Nicole G August 7, 2010 / 7:34 pm

    I am still into denim, although I don’t have as many pairs as I used to! I still love my COH but have been venturing into J Brand and Denimocracy jeggings! So comfortable! Now that I am done having kiddos, I have been trying to shop more and build up my wardrobe. I am so excited to hear about the projects you are working on (when you can talk about them πŸ˜‰ I think it’s so awesome that your hard work has paid off with great opportunities! I frequent TPF often and stumbled upon you in a CL post. I love your pink CL’s!

    • Lorna August 7, 2010 / 9:59 pm

      I love J Brand! Have you tried Paige’s and 7s? I can’t wait to be able to talk about what I have coming up! Hopefully soon, like in the next couple of months πŸ˜€ What is your username on TPF? I will look out for you πŸ˜€ You can also email me anytime you want to if you do want to. I do work really hard every day and that’s really nice to know other people appreciate it and can see that, thank you so much!

  8. Nicole G August 8, 2010 / 6:14 pm

    I have had Paige bootcut in the past but not skinnies. And I have yet to try 7s, not sure what I am waiting on πŸ˜‰ My TPF name is Hiswifetheirmom. Yes, keep in touch! And you are so welcome :) It was so great talking to you, Lorna! Take care and keep me posted!

  9. Myrle Klancnik September 10, 2010 / 5:18 pm

    I found this page through Facebook (a friend of mine posted it). After reading the article, I clicked Like and reshared it. More power to you.

  10. sehat October 10, 2010 / 2:42 pm

    Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. More people need to read this. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

  11. brightstormyday November 25, 2010 / 5:22 am

    Let me know and, again, your blog is fantastic!


  16. Ella Hindle November 16, 2011 / 8:49 am

    Hi Lorna I’m Ella and I love jeans, mostly Levis though!!

    I love your blog and you’ve made me think I should try other jeans :)

    When would you be commenting on other Levis jeans mind you? I do love them and would hope to see more reviews.

    Keep up the great work babe :)

    • Lorna November 17, 2011 / 12:19 pm

      Hi Ella :) Thanks for liking my blog! I don’t wear Levi’s all that often, they are not one of my favourite brands. I have a boyfriend pair and a few Slight Curves but I don’t really wear them :) You should definitely try out other jeans and brands! I think you might be suprised!

  17. Laura Clayderman November 17, 2011 / 7:21 pm

  24. Jess December 10, 2012 / 3:04 am


    After stalking most of your DenimBlog and Raindrops of Sapphire posts, I have decided we must be friends! Since I feel like I know so much about you (aka your impeccable taste for clothes!), I decided to share my blog with you in hopes of us developing a friendship. (I realize I sound crazy, so, feel free to (not) humor me :P)

    You are the cutest and I can’t thank you enough for all your denim help and input these past few days (I posted on your Paige Skyline Porcelain Leaf page and the Koral Merlot page). I have this thing about not following people on Instagram unless I know them, but you may be the first “famous” person I follow on Instagram! :)

    All the best!

    • Lorna December 10, 2012 / 11:51 am

      Hi Jess :) Thank you so much! That’s really kind! I’m so flat you like my blog and DenimBlog, it means a lot to me! Of course I will check your blog out and see what it’s about! That’s really funny you consider me as famous though, ha ha :)

      • Jess December 10, 2012 / 7:27 pm

        Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to read and comment on my blog. It was such a kind gesture! :) You’ve got my email so feel free to email me to begin our newfound friendship! πŸ˜‰ (I am both serious and kidding.)

        It’s official, you are the first “famous” person I follow on Instagram (I’m moxylicious). Have a lovely day!

        • Lorna December 10, 2012 / 7:28 pm

          Ha ha thanks Jess :) although I don’t really consider myself to be famous so to speak, but that’s really kind of you to think that way! :)

  25. alexander February 6, 2013 / 1:35 pm

    Hi Lorna. Im from moscow and u can delivered to my country?

    • Lorna February 6, 2013 / 1:53 pm

      Hi! How do you mean deliver?

      • alexander February 6, 2013 / 2:05 pm

        I’m sorry for my English. Mail or delivery service FedEX, UPS or any other

        • Lorna February 6, 2013 / 2:20 pm

          But I’m not a shop? I don’t sell anything?

          • alexander February 6, 2013 / 2:30 pm

            So you do not sell the goods?” I just thought that you can sell the goods which is not in the stores and send mail. And what are you doing?

            • Lorna February 6, 2013 / 2:48 pm

              No I don’t sell anything. I’m a blogger, a bit like a magazine, but online. Not a shop :) Hopefully that helps? :)

              • alexander February 6, 2013 / 2:57 pm

                OK, can you tell what the design of Internet-shops you have c male clothing

                • Lorna February 6, 2013 / 3:08 pm

                  Sorry I don’t understand what you mean?

    • Lorna October 1, 2013 / 2:26 am

      Thanks for reading it, if you want to comment on that particular post, it might be easier. I get a lot of comments, so it’s easier to keep them in the designated areas so I know what I’m replying to :) We can chat on that post about Japanese denim if you want to :)

  41. NICOLE BURFORD March 30, 2015 / 5:41 pm


    I was just looking at a pair of strassed shoes to get ideas for the ones I have been working on and I saw that your last name was Burford… my great great grandparents were from England and I have never seen anyone else with the last name Burford so I had to say hi because I thought it’s possible we could be related somehow! What a coinsidence

    • Lorna March 30, 2015 / 5:43 pm

      Hi! That’s funny :) Nice to meet you! It’s not an overly common name over here in England either, so it’s possible :)

  42. NICOLE BURFORD March 30, 2015 / 6:46 pm

    I didn’t mean to bother you with that information by the way.. I just thought it was interesting since I am from pennsylvania and I did the whole ancestory.com thing before and learned my family was from England but I gave up because I didn’t have a lot of time to really get into the research part of it… by the way, I am loving your style

    • Lorna April 1, 2015 / 9:44 pm

      Thank you! It wasn’t a bother, it’s always interesting to learn new things! I’m really glad you like my site! Sorry it took a while to reply, your message ended up in spam.
