This is a photo my boyfriend snapped of me, which turned out quite good, so it’s now my Facebook profile picture!
Here are some photos from my Instagram account (@LornaRaindrops) from the past couple of months. I think Instagram is my favourite app ever to be created, I absolutely love it and am always sharing photos and looking at other peoples pictures every day. I find it so inspiring and fun, I can spend ages on there! I like being able to share my Instagram photos with you here on my blog as well though, for those of you who don’t have the Instagram app. I don’t want you to miss out. I often post photos of new purchases, my kitties, scenery, food, what I’m up to, outfit previews etc, so if you want to follow me, you can get a great behind the scenes look at my life and blog.
On a different note, I wanted to let you know that lately I have been working really hard on my other blog, The Fashion Supernova. I announced it to you a long time ago and it’s a place for me to write about everything fashion related, which isn’t personal. I set it up purely because I wanted to keep Raindrops of Sapphire about my personal life and style, so it wasn’t really a great fit for me to write about look books, campaigns, fashion week etc here on this blog. The Fashion Supernova lets me write about whatever I want to in the fashion world, covering both women’s and men’s fashion. I’ve been working super hard at the moment covering fashion week shows, so please do check those out! It’s also become a blog that’s very much about fashion inspiration, so you will find other bloggers, street style and LOOKBOOK.nu outfits on there to be inspired by! I hope you like it! Don’t forget to also check out my YouTube channel though as I have uploaded lots of new videos from fashion week.
I’ve been really into beauty stuff lately and a friend introduced me to the charcoal mask from Origins. I picked up a sample last week and loved it, so I bought one, a long with a hand cream! I love their stuff now <3
(Mini Mac in Lilac – Mini 5 Zip in Mint)
Those of you who are a fan of my FaceBook page will already know about this as I post to my social media accounts before I do my blog, but I thought it was about time I posted here too! It’s mine and my boyfriends 5 year anniversary coming up in a couple of weeks and he wanted to get me something special, I originally said no to a Rebecca Minkoff bag as it’s expensive, but he twisted my arm, so I had the choice between the Lilac and Mint, both of which I love.
I did order the Lilac shade and it arrived a few days ago, it’s actually a lot heavier than I was expecting due to the chain and although it’s pretty, it just doesn’t wow me like I thought it would, but then I haven’t tried wearing it with an outfit. My question is though, which would you have picked? The Lilac Mini Mac or the Mint Mini 5 Zip?
I am obsessed with Mint at the moment and I do think it’s gorgeous, but I’m unsure. After spending time looking at and admiring the Lilac one, I do like it, just not as much as I thought, but then I’m not sure if I would feel exactly the same way about the Mint one if I ordered it. The unfortunate thing is that I have to order it from the US, so after customs/taxes/shipping etc it’s not easy to just return it. What would you have picked? Or do any of you own these bags?

As tradition now, here are some of my Instagram photos that I have posted over the past couple of weeks. I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, my username is @LornaRaindrops and I always post photos, between 4-6 photos every day and most of them are images that I don’t have on my blog. So, you can always keep up to date with what I am doing, what I’m wearing etc on that day. As always, I have put the captions underneath each photo. Which photo do you like the most?
Wearing my Hudson Horrigan Boots!
I’m so excited right now because I have been shortlisted down to 10 bloggers to win the Bath in Fashion blogger award!

If you like my blog, then it only takes less than 10 seconds to use the voting page to vote for me.
