My Fashion & Style Blog Is 5 Years Old Today!

lorna-raindrops-birthday-balloons

Today, March 10th 2015, is my blogs 5th birthday! I can’t believe Raindrops of Sapphire is 5 years old already! The time really feels like it has flown by, but at the same time, it feels like there wasn’t ever a time where I didn’t have my personal style blog. 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 arm. It wouldn’t be where it is today (hitting just over 2 million views and collaborating with some amazing brands) if it wasn’t for all of you though, my loyal readers and supporters.

Not a day goes by that I don’t smile and enjoy reading the lovely comments that you leave me, yes there are some hateful ones along the way, but the ones that are important are the ones of encouragement and positivity! A huge thank you is going out to all of you who read my blog, those of you who comment on every post, and those of you who read without commenting (it might be nice to finally meet some of you though!), as you all make it worthwhile! It’s nice to know that I always have your support and you are there to chat to!

In celebration of Raindrops of Sapphire turning 5, I decided to make a video for you all. This one is a little different as I take you on a tour of one of my favourite places, the Botanical Gardens, and you also get to see a few panning shots of my outfit (which I will be sharing with you in a post soon) and a special set of personalised thank you’s to some of you at the end, so I really hope you like it! It’s taken a long time to put it together, which is why I don’t often do many videos in my posts and like to keep them for special occasions! You can watch it just below. Let me know what you think as I always cringe watching myself back and hearing my childlike voice, ha ha!

    Congratulation on 5 great blogging years. Sadly I missed out on the first 4 years and 9 months. I guess I have some catching up to do

    Congratulations on reaching 5 years of blogging. That’s a wonderful achievement and hope you feel justly proud as you enter your sixth year. πŸ™‚ This is such a friendly and welcoming blog because you put so much of yourself into it and I think it’s especially great that you take the time out to reply to everyone.

    I’ve only been reading your blog since sometime in January of this year, and commenting for even less time, so I’ve only seen a fraction of what you’ve posted – but I’ve hugely enjoyed what I have seen and I always look forward to reading each of your new entries.

    That was a brilliant video. You look fabulous in that outfit. πŸ™‚ Your squirrel co-star was looking good too. LOL They’re not quite that tame in the park that I go to… but seeing as you had food in hand for him I take it they happily approach humans all the time in those gardens?

      Thank you πŸ™‚ Did you see I said a thank you to you at the end? That Steven was you in case you didn’t know! And yeah, they are very friendly, they usually eat out of my hand actually, but typically because we were filming, that didn’t happen, ha ha! πŸ™‚

        Yeah, I saw that but I wasn’t entirely sure it was me – what with me only have been around for such a short time. That’s really kind of you to include me. Thank you so much for that. πŸ˜€

    Happy birthday to your blog! Time sure does fly =)

    The video was super cute- my favourite part of your outfit was actually your pearl ring. And a big thank you for the surprise at the end, I was totally shocked and really appreciate the recognition! Anyway, it has been great following your blog over the past couple years, and I always look forward to your outfits, opinions and whatever else you share here on Raindrops! Don’t ever stop writing, you are totally inspirational.

    I hope you enjoyed your day!

    ps- I ordered a new pair of Rocket jeans in “Modern Love” http://aritzia.com/en/product/rocket-modern-love/55787001.html I can’t wait for them to arrive so I can try them!
