Some Updates And Instagram Snaps


Just a quick snap of my hair and make-up before an outfit shoot!


I want to fill you all in on a couple of things that happened this week and explain why I haven’t made an update in a little while. For those of you following me on social media, you will already know that unfortunately my blog got messed up and was sending out a lot of useless spam which meant it had to be taken off line in case it infected anyone else on my server. This was why a lot of you couldn’t access Raindrops of Sapphire on Thursday. Thank you to everyone who sent me messages to check everything was ok and shared concern though, I really appreciate that. It’s nice to know just how much my blog means to you all 🙂

Luckily, I was able to get it fixed on Thursday without too much of a hiccup. One of my friends, Ryan, is really good at the tech stuff that I’m not and offered to help out and remove all the coding, so I am really grateful for that. It meant that it got fixed quite quickly and not too much damage was done! So, I’m saying another huge thank you to Ryan for this! He’s been a life saver since my blog is a huge part of me. I can’t even begin to explain the stress it caused! But, that’s all fixed now *hopefully* and I’m making this little update for you.

It’s been some time since I shared with you some Instagram snaps from my account (@LornaRaindrops), so I thought I would show you some of my best ones from the past few months. I use Instagram every single day as an extension of Raindrops of Sapphire, so if you like my blog, I would love for you to follow me on Instagram too. I post photos of my outfits before they go live on the blog, my cats, my food, any pretty scenery that I see when I’m out, new purchases etc. It’s sort of like a behind the scenes look at a fashion bloggers life. Anyway, thank you for reading and I’m glad to be back on track! I hope you all are having a lovely weekend 🙂


Pretty faux sunflowers that I got to brighten my room!

This beautiful scenery was on the way back from London a while ago, it reminded me of Tuscany!

    You are a great follow on Instagram for sure, dear. Such a nice variety of photos and a keen eye for finding them. Cute kitties :x) And those shots of your gorgeous legs always brighten my day. That shot of your 2007 jeans I especially enjoyed tonight! Wow 🙂
