My Blogs 4th Birthday!

So today is my blogs 4th birthday and I honestly can’t believe just how fast it’s gone! It still only feels like last year I was on my bed thinking up the name Raindrops of Sapphire at about 3am in the morning when I couldn’t sleep! These 4 years have just flown by and I’m really thankful for how much my blog has grown in this time, even though it’s been incredibly hard work, I’m very happy that all of you follow my posts and enjoy reading it! So, in honour of my 4th birthday, I thought I would do…

How To Curl Your Hair With GHD Hair …

In December I put a video tutorial up on my YouTube on curling your hair with a hair straightener/flat iron. Lots of you have always commented on my hair when it’s curly and have asked how I do it, so I thought I would also create a blog post explaining to you just how to curl your hair with hair straighteners. It’s a lot easier than you might think and it gives a great result! It’s not as soft and springy as curling tongs, however it gives those looser waves that I think suit longer, thicker hair better, which is…

Gone Away With The Metallic Unicorns

(Jumper – Similar, Jeans – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Bracelets – Exact) We actually took these photos more than a month ago, before the heat wave came in and I completely forgot about them.

I’ve been wearing them often as they are so comfortable and light weight, they are definitely one of my best shoe purchases! I used to be obsessed with Christian Louboutin shoes, as you know, but I think Giuseppe…

A Burgundy Dress & Sunsets At The Beach

(Dress – Similar, Sandals – Similar, Bag – Exact, Watch – Exact, Sunglasses – Exact, Bottle – Exact) At the weekend I went to the beach for the evening with my boyfriend as it was really warm. We went to Burnham On Sea, which is a place I haven’t ever been before. The beaches I used to go to as a child were mainly Weston Super Mare and Weymouth, but even though Burnham is small, it’s really quiet and such a nice place to sit and relax. I’ve never really been on the beach while the sun was setting before…

The White Grecian Embellished Shoulder Dress

(Dress – Exact, Shoes – Similar, Bag – Exact, Necklace – Exact, Bracelets – Exact, Ring – Similar) I wore this outfit last weekend when I was enjoying the sunshine and warm weather in the country lanes. One of my favourite things to do is go and find quiet areas to sit and relax as well as places that look pretty for photos. It does make things easier when I live in the countryside, so I am very happy that I do! I bought this dress from Zara last month and I absolutely fell in love with it. I sort…
