My Own Relationship Advice

Adam and I just celebrated our 9 year anniversary on the 27th April, and it’s crazy to think that we have been together so long. Next year is the decade, the big 10 years, and while it feels like the time has gone incredibly fast since my timeline is often measured by events, at the same time, mentally I feel like I have known him forever and I can’t even remember my life without him. There’s something so special about…

How To Walk In Your Christian Louboutin Shoes

How To Walk In Your Christian Louboutin Shoes As I have quite a few popular blog posts here on Raindrops of Sapphire about Christian Louboutin shoes, including getting your Christian Louboutin shoes to fit as well as my DIY Christian Louboutin strass shoes and finding the right Christian Louboutin shoes for you, I thought it would be a nice idea to write up a blog post on how to walk in them. I know so many ladies struggle to walk…

My 10 Ultimate Summer Essentials

When it comes to Summer, I always find myself reaching for my essentials and making sure I’m stocked up ready for the heat (well, if you can call it that here in England!). As a fashion blogger, I’m always eager to put away my coats, heavy jackets, boots and scarves and replace them with my Summer alternatives! I thought it might be a good idea to share with you what my 10 ultimate Summer essentials are in this post! This…

Appreciating My Body, Changing My Life

For so long I never really appreciated my body, I used to think negatively towards it, always focus on parts I hated, I even had diaries full of the latest diets I was planning to try out (or did try), the craziest regimes I would put myself on, lots of different fads through my teen years and even ended up being a size 24 in jeans, which is fine for some people, but for my frame, it wasn’t right. I…

My Skin Care Routine: Jan Marini, Liz Earle & …

I’ve had a lot of questions about my skincare routine, including what I use because I’m often mistaken for a 16 year old. As I’ve explained before, a lot of it is genetic because my mum and dad look really young, but it’s also because of my lifestyle. I don’t drink alcohol or fizzy drinks and I don’t smoke or go out in the sun without sun cream. I would say that I have a pretty healthy diet and rarely…

My Make Up – Barbara Panagos, Benefit & More

I get asked a lot of questions about my make-up and what I use, so I thought it would be good to put together a whole post dedicated just to it and the process I go through. Since I am naturally blonde, I naturally have blonde eyelashes and eyebrows too, so one part of my body that I’m not comfortable with is my eyes. I like them because they are green, which is a rarer colour, but without mascara, I…

My Hair Care Routine

A lot of you have asked me previously about my hair and have mentioned that you really like the style, so I thought I would share with you my hair care routine. I use quite a few different products as I do have extra thick hair, even my hairdresser struggles with the amount of hair I have, ha ha. It’s quite a long routine each time I wash it (about an hour and half from start to finish), so I…

Navigating The January Sales

The after Christmas and January sales are one of my favourite times of year for shopping! Over the years I have become quite good at getting the deals I want for a good price by thinking smart and budgeting well. I was given a challenge by VoucherCodes.co.uk to navigate the high street sales with £80 and to document my experience, while sharing my sale shopping tips and tricks with you! I think sale shopping is a really good way to…
