My Christmas Week Photo Diary

My Christmas Photo Diary I thought it might be nice to share with you my week of Christmas. I don’t usually do this as I’m often busy with other blog posts around this time of year and maybe just quickly show some presents that I got, but as I spend the week with Adam leading up to Christmas, we did some fun things which I thought might be good to document. This does include seeing reindeer for the very first…

The Key To Happiness

An interview with me on the key to happiness and being present Since coming out about my illness (M.E) and working with the M.E organisation, doing a couple of interviews and trying to answer all of your questions on it, I thought I would pile together some of the important and life changing questions from you and answer them in this post. I wanted this post to be about happiness, clarity and well-being, finding an internal strength and calmness even…

A Fashion Blogger With M.E – Anxiety & Depression

I wanted to start my ‘fashion blogger with M.E‘ individual posts with anxiety and depression. This is something that has played a huge part in my life for many, many years now so it’s something I’d like to share in great detail with you all and I hope it can help some of you out there in similar situations. When I first started to get sick around the age of 13/14, it was really difficult for me to take on.…

A Fashion Blogger With M.E

There are a lot of you out there who have followed my fashion blogger journey since it began in 2010, which I am incredibly grateful for, and there are so many of you who joined me a couple of years, months, weeks or even a few days ago. Since my blog is so personal to me and I feel like we have built up a little community here which I trust and feel safe with, I wanted to explain to…

My Fashion & Style Blog Is 5 Years Old Today!

Today, March 10th 2015, is my blogs 5th birthday! I can’t believe Raindrops of Sapphire is 5 years old already!

Raindrops of Sapphire is like an extension of me now, it’s a huge part of my life that just fits in with everything I do, making it like my third…

A Day With Me – What Do I Do?

I was extremely inspired by Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere today when I read her blog post on her daily routine. I enjoyed reading it so much that I wanted to do my own post for you to enjoy reading as well. I know it’s always fun to look into people’s lives and see what they get up to! So, this is my day on Monday 19th January 2014. I hope you like it! 10am – I’m really not a…

Here’s To 2015

I’m never one to make New Years resolutions as I truly don’t believe that just because it’s a new year, you should change your life if nothing needs changing, or because the date tells you to. I’m a firm believer in changing when it’s right for you and when you feel ready. With that being said, I do like to have goals and achievements for when I’m ready. I thought that in 2014 I would be able to go to…
