20 Random Facts About Me, Lorna

For one of my personal posts, I thought it might be fun to do another Q&A, but one with random questions that I found online. Ones people wouldn’t really ask, but they are interesting to find out about others in my opinion. So I’ve answered 20 random questions about me. Hopefully it helps you get to know me a little better 🙂 Feel free to answer any of these about yourself in a comment if you want to as well, it’s always nice to get to know people 🙂 1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you? I don’t really have a nickname, since my name is shorter anyway, most of the time I’m just called ‘Lorn’ without the A. 2. What’s a weird habit of yours? Unfortunately I bite my nails. It’s a bad one to have, not really weird, but I tend to bite them in times of stress or worry. 3. Do you have any weird phobias? I wouldn’t class them as weird, but I am severely phobic of blood tests. Even just thinking about it makes me feel nauseous, I pass out with them. I’ve avoided them for such a long time now as it’s impossible to go through with it without some form of sedation, it’s that bad. I think it comes from bad experiences as a child, I was in and out of hospital a lot when I was little with illness and it’s stemmed from that. I’m also really really scared of sharks, mainly great white sharks, just seeing their faces makes me panic, it’s really bad. Those are my only two…

The American Eagle

(Jeans – Similar, Shoes – Similar, Jacket – Similar, Bag – Similar, Umbrella – Similar) This is the outfit I wore last weekend when I went to town with my boyfriend. We tried a place that we hadn’t been before for lunch, Wagamama’s, and I actually really liked it. I had the Chicken Ramen and although I could only eat about half of it because it was so big, it was really nice. Have any of you eaten at Wagamama’s before? I’m wearing my American Eagle skinny jeans, my Topshop PU leather jacket and bag, a H&M white t-shirt and my ASH Bowie sneakers/trainers. These jeans were actually a present from my friend in America for my last birthday. I really love them. I usually like to wear premium denim as it fits me well, but these American Eagle jeans are wonderful! I love them! Also, in some photos I have my Lulu Guinness umbrella up because it kept raining then stopping, then raining then stopping. Hopefully it’s going to stay warm for a while now and we might finally get our summer!

The Denim & The Bluebell

(Jeans – Exact, Shirt – Exact, Top – Similar, Necklace – Similar, Heels – Similar) This is an outfit that I threw together really quickly for a review on DenimBlog. I think there is something so simple and classic about a pair of dark skinny jeans and a light wash denim shirt. When I bought this denim shirt, I honestly didn’t think I would wear it as much as I have done, it’s sort of become a staple now and overtook my other denim shirts. I really like the pop of purple peeping through as well, I think it makes the outfit stand out more. Although please excuse my unruly hair, ha ha. I’m wearing J Brand skinny jeans in Bluebell, a Topshop denim shirt, purple top and Amethyst necklace and my Kurt Geiger nude Eleanor heels. I wanted to say thank you to everyone who voted on my poll for what you would like to see more of. Outfit posts won by loads of votes so from now on I will make sure I try and post as many outfits as I can and then in between, when I’m not able to, I will fill up the blog posts with personal life and new items. I’m also planning on trying to post more, so maybe 4-5 times a week instead of about 3. So, what do you think of this simple double denim outfit? You can also read my review on DB here.

Which Marc by Marc Jacobs Rose Gold Watch?

So my 24th birthday is coming up really soon (3rd August) and I wanted to buy myself a gift. At the moment I am lucky enough to have my boyfriend, my mum and my dad chip in to buy me this Marc by Marc Jacobs Pixie bag that I wanted and I am very excited about it, although I feel bad since it’s quite expensive (to me anyway). I don’t usually buy myself gifts, but I thought it might be nice to this time around. I’ve had an increasing obsession with watches and I’ve always loved rose gold. I saw these two watches on Shopbop a few weeks back and fell in love with them. I saw the left one, the Blade Chronograph, first and was sure that I wanted that one, but then I saw the Henry Glitz a little while after and thought I wanted that one instead. I’m now stuck deciding between the two! The Blade Chronograph is chunkier and more manly, but I think I like its simplicity, where as the Henry Glitz is more feminine due to the crystals and I feel it looks more lighter. It’s a really tough choice and I don’t know which one to go with! What would you do? Hopefully you can all help me decide! Deep down I’m thinking I should go with the Blade Chrono though, as my boyfriend pointed out it would probably go with more things. Comment and let me know!

Thank You’s & What Do You Want To See More Of?

I decided that I want to say a big thank you to my readers/fans who comment the most on my blog. So at the end of each month I’m going to give a shout out to the top 5 people who have commented the most during that month and include a link to their blog. The shout out will be within the text of one of my posts as I really do appreciate all of the comments you guys leave me. I read every single one and I reply to every one as well, so I thought it would be nice to say some thank you’s from now on! 🙂 Also, I know I posted this poll before, within my outfit post, but I thought I should include it in a post of its own because I think some of you may have missed it before. I’m interested in knowing exactly what you would like to see more of on my blog. Since I started The Fashion Supernova, for everything non personal, I’m keeping Raindrops of Sapphire personal, so what would you like more of? I know outfit posts are in demand so I will try to take more photos of those (it’s a little difficult as blogging is my job from home) but I will definitely try! But for the posts in between outfits posts, what do you want to see? Let me know in the poll below and you can comment with your ideas as well 🙂

The Crochet Denim Shorts

(Shorts – Similar, Top – Similar, Shoes – Exact On Sale, Ring – Similar, Necklace – Exact & Similar, Watch – Similar, Bracelet – Similar, Similar, Similar & Similar) Even though it hasn’t been very warm out, I had had enough of not being able to wear all of the cute denim shorts that I bought for Summer. So over the weekend, for a short amount of time, I finally was able to wear my denim crochet shorts. The most annoying thing about them though is that they ride up so much, they are so beautiful and gorgeous, but I decided I can’t really go out wearing them without wearing a long top, they ride up way too much at the back and I end up showing more than I intended, which is not good, ha ha. I’m wearing my denim crochet shorts, beige flats, spiked bracelet, Amethyst and Butterfly necklace from Topshop, a Sparkle & Fade long sleeve top, Urban Outfitters Bird ring, ASOS watch and some DIY bracelets. I was wondering how do you get around the short shorts situation? Sometimes I wear them with leggings underneath, but I don’t want to do that when it’s hot, so I suppose the only option is a long top and tuck in the front? Also, I’m going to see Magic Mike tomorrow, which I am excited about! Have any of you seen it yet? And as always, you can purchase the items I’m wearing in the links under the first image and click this post to view the rest of the photos.

My New Venture – The Fashion Supernova

I mentioned to you before that I have been working on something exciting and would share it with you soon, that time has now come where I feel like I’m ready to announce it and I hope you all like it! I’ve been working on a new blog! It’s called The Fashion Supernova and it’s about everything fashion! The reason why I have started this blog is because Raindrops of Sapphire, to me, is my personal style and everything else to do with my life blog, but I also love writing about other fashion things like magazine editorials, celebs, new trends etc and it wouldn’t make much sense to do that on this blog as it doesn’t really tie in with what I want it to be about anymore. That’s when I decided that The Fashion Supernova should be born. I created the blog and have been working on it for just over a week now (even though I have had the idea for many months). The name combines two things that I am in love with, fashion and space. Not many of you will know, but I have a sort of hidden obsession for everything about space and astronomy and supernovas are actually my favourite thing to do with that. They are a massive explosion which can wipe out galaxies and they are amazingly beautiful! But combining that word with fashion made sense to me because I wanted the site to be sort of like an explosion of fashion. So far, I have made a post on fashion watches, Emma Stone’s Vogue editorial, Katie Holmes Elle magazine feature, Jessical…

Glitter, Purple And Leather Style Skinnies

(Jeans – Similar, Top – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Necklace – Exact, Rings – Exact & Exact) This is an outfit I wore over the weekend that I had just thrown together at the time. It wasn’t one that I planned, but I thought these shoes would go nicer with black so I paired them with my faux leather skinnies and a bright purple top. I quite like the combination actually. What do you think? I know my initial rings say L A and some of you will recognise my initials are L B, however I got the A for my boyfriends first name instead and I like wearing them together. I’m wearing my MET Faux Leather Skinnies, a Topshop purple top, amethyst necklace and gold initial rings, my Adele Marie Swarovski bangle and my Bronx Gunmetal Glitter Slippers. On Sunday I am going to be announcing a new project I have been working on which I think you will like! So out of interest as well, what would you like to see more of on my fashion blog? My plans are to make it more personal, but at the same time I appreciate all of the feedback you guys give me. So what would you love to see more of? You can let me know in comments and by voting in the poll just below. Thanks!
