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, Topshop, bags, accessories, Mulberry, Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Minkoff and Christian Louboutin shoes etc. I update this blog about 4-5 times a week with my personal style photos, giveaways, Instagram photos, inspirations, personal life, 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. I’m very jealous of you lucky LA readers who live in the sunshine almost everyday. 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 26 now). Blogging is my passion and about a year 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. 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!

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, DenimBlog and my own blogs have 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! But, through my absolute love of fashion and blogging in general, I have been able to do some amazing things with Raindrops of Sapphire as well. 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. I have also been featured in LOOK magazine and Bath Life magazine numerous times, written an article for InBath and various other publications.

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! 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 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, Looked around your blog tonight and it is really good. Someday I will get around to making a blog of some kind myself. I also follow denim blog. :) Have a super weekend

  5. Nicole G says

    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,

      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?

  6. Nicole G says

    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 ;) 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!

    • says

      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 :D What is your username on TPF? I will look out for you :D 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!

  7. Nicole G says

    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 ;) 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!

  8. Myrle Klancnik says

    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.

  9. sehat says

    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.

  10. says

    Just now i realized that you have a denim website. I’m in love with denim all my life and i think it’s top material! I always used denim! Glad that we share same passion (:

  11. says

    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 :)

    • says

      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!

  12. says

    Hi Lorna!
    Thank you very much for your comment,on my other blog(on blogger), this one is the same just on wordpress :) and it’s easier for me to follow you here!
    You are very young!!!
    My best wishes!

  13. says

    HI Lorna, I totally love your blog! Thx for writing a comment at mine :) I just liked you at facebook. If you like you can “like” my blog as well…

    Love, Hannah

    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 says

      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 says

        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! ;) (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 says

          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! :)

  15. Eric says

    Lorna you are stunning. You remind me of taylor swift but much prettier and you have a better style

  16. ifan says

    Just read your “My Obsession With Jeans & My Favourite Denim”. What do you think about japanese denim? And do you have one of them?

    • Lorna says

      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 :)

    • says

      I’m the editor in chief and have been running it for about 7 years :) I don’t own it, but I do own The Jeans Blog http::/thejeansblog.com which I think you will love too if you love denim! :)

  17. Lady says

    • says

      Hi, thank you very much! That’s really kind of you! I’m so glad you like them! Unfortunately I’m not able to do fan signs as I don’t know anything about the cause or group, but I wish you the best of luck with it and I’m very grateful that you are a fan!
