My Inspiration, My Role Model, My Nan

Notice – If you leave a comment without reading this post, it wont be accepted. I know some of you just look at the photos and not the writing, so please be thoughtful with your comments.  I had another blog post planned for today, but I thought instead I would write something about my nan. I always like to keep a positive light here on my blog, but my family and I lost the most beautiful person in the world (inside and out) this morning and I wanted to share how much of an inspiration she was to everyone. I’ve…

My Christmas Week

It’s crazy to think that Christmas was 3 days ago now and it’s all over. In a way I am relieved as it’s an extremely stressful time and I end up getting quite bored, but I’m sad that the decorations and festive atmosphere will start to go as that’s my favourite thing!

It’s usually absolutely freezing (over here anyway) and I know I would rather be curled up on the sofa in a blanket with a warm drink. I’ve found out though that even with my illness, I do need to workout in some way or another. When I am sedentary for a number of days and I’m not feeling too well, I end up feeling worse and my digestion becomes sluggish as well, so I need to do some…

Miss Captain America

My Miss Captain America Costume Before I start this blog post, I wanted to say that this is my favourite costume and favourite set of photos that I have ever done here on Raindrops of Sapphire. Not only is Captain America my favourite comic book character as you all know, but turning myself and these photos into a real life comic book was like a dream come true for me too. It’s taken hours to edit and do this entire shoot from start to finish, but I have to say that I’m incredibly proud of these photos and I haven’t…
