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?
I’m so excited right now because I have been shortlisted down to 10 bloggers to win the Bath in Fashion blogger award! I’m listed along with 9 other fashion bloggers and I would be so grateful if you could all vote for me! If you like my blog, then it only takes less than 10 seconds to use the voting page to vote for me. It would mean so much to me as I honestly never win anything like this, let alone get shortlisted, so it’s really important to me. You can vote by clicking here (Lorna Burford of Raindrops of Sapphire) and please comment and let me know if you do vote so I can keep track! Thank you, thank you, thank you! All of this becomes possible for me because of my readers! I appreciate you all so much! Lorna xx.
Ok, so today is my blogs 3rd birthday and I have literally just hit 1 million page views in total as well, which is incredible! I can’t believe I’ve actually reached a million, that’s quite a milestone! But I wanted to celebrate by doing something quite rare and making a video! You can watch it just above, but for my non English readers who want to use Google translate, I have posted the copy of what I said just below! Thank you to all of you for reading my blog, it really does mean a lot to me! Lorna xx.
Hi everyone, it’s Lorna from Raindrops of Sapphire!
I wanted to make a quick video to say thank you to all of you for being fans of my blog because today (March 10th) is my blogs 3rd birthday! I can’t believe it’s been 3 years, I have no idea where the time has gone! But, I appreciate every single comment that I get – as you know I reply to every one, and just knowing that you take the time out of your day to visit my blog and actually like it means so much to me, so thank you! And, because it’s my blogs birthday, tomorrow I am holding a special giveaway and you could win this! It’s by Sofia Moore and I have never done a bag or purse giveaway before, so I’m quite excited about it! It’s covered in glitter so it’s really pretty in person! Keep an eye out for this giveaway tomorrow on my blog!
Also, let me know if you think I should do more videos, I generally don’t do them because I’m actually quite shy in person, but if you want them I will definitely do some more! Thank you again and I would love for you to follow me on my social media accounts for exclusive content which I will leave just below! Bye!
