This is sort of like an update post with some new features, interesting new things and more. Starting it off is my feature in LOOK magazine! My arm swag image was in last weeks copy with Jennifer Aniston on the front page. I love LOOK magazine so it’s such an honour to be featured, especially right next to Chiara Ferragni and Anarchy Street, who both have a huge amount of followers. Mine is the bottom right image as you can see. I was so excited when I found out about this! Have you got the copy? You can follow me on Instagram for my daily photos at @LornaRaindrops. Below is a brand new venture that I wanted to share with you called Azigo. It’s a new website which enables you to keep track of your emails in a layout that’s sort of similar to Bloglovin and Pinterest. It works great if you have so many emails in your inbox and you want to keep track of brands daily emails etc in one place. You can sign up to the brands and stores you love and receive all of their emails in your Azigo inbox in a preview form. The best thing though is I am their first blogger to be a part of the site! I’ve teamed up with them so you can also follow my personal style blog updates in the same way you would sign up to a brand newsletter! You will get an email in your Azigo inbox every time I make a new post. It’s actually an amazing site and really efficient for keeping things up…
I thought it was about time that I did another features and guest posts blog post for you all as I have done a few over the past couple of months. I got selected by 10K10Q as a fashion bloggers street style they liked, a long with a few other bloggers, which you can see here. They then contacted me to do a small interview with them on my style and my blog which you can see here. Thank you to the wonderful people at 10K10Q for choosing me and liking my normal street day to day style! I did a guest post for Nubry (click here to read it) on polka dot jeans and how to wear them. I spoke about celebrities wearing the trend and also how to style them in London from day to night. My post was edited by their editor to fit their writing style, so you may notice that it’s not exactly written how I write. Hopefully you like it and find it helpful! I also did another post for them where they feature my mint skinny jeans for Fall, you can read that one here.
It’s that time again where I have done quite a few interviews and features and I am piling them together into a blog post for all of you to see. The links to read the full article are below each image. I did an in depth interview for Fresh Wet Paint for both Raindrops of Sapphire and DenimBlog. They asked some tough questions and wanted to know more about how I got into fashion blogging, my style, my boyfriends style and more! Read the full interview here. I did an interview for the wonderful blog Fashionista Era and they also asked some in depth questions about my blog Raindrops of Sapphire. The questions included my inspirations, why I love denim, my style icons and more. Read the full interview here. Beauty Riot asked me to take part in their bloggers feature about shoes. They wanted me to tell them my favourite shoes and send in some photos. You can see that post along with everyone’s favourite shoes here. I have done an interview for Sarah Velasco before, last year some time, and this is a follow up one where she asked me more questions about how things were in 2011, what’s new and more! You can read the full interview here. This is just a little feature, but My Street Chic really liked one of my outfits so they featured it on their website. They do feature some great style bloggers too so you can check out the feature here.
By 7 For all Mankind! Yay! I was so excited to find a tweet in my Twitter inbox from 7 For All Mankind saying they featured me in their Top 10 Blogger Looks For 2011! I’m in the list alongside Chiara from The Blonde Salad and I am a huge fan of her blog so I am very honoured! Thank you so much to the brand for featuring me! I’m a big fan of 7 For All Mankind jeans and own so many of them! You can see the original post here on their blog. Also, to add this to my features section (some of you have read this before) I took part in Revolve’s Holiday Boutique where they asked me to select some items for a mini pop up boutique alongside Nicole Richie and Lauren Conrad as well as some other bloggers. I had so much fun doing that and you can see the Holiday Boutique here. (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
I’m really excited to say that my blog has been voted one of the best of the web by Be In Style! They added my blog to their weekly feature of the best fashion blogs they find and I am really happy they contacted me and chose mine! It means a lot to me. You can see the feature here. I also wanted to say that I am really grateful to everyone that features me and thinks my blog is great. I appreciate all of the lovely comments that you leave me and the nice emails that I get sent from you all. Thank you so much for supporting me and my blog! Also, I am including an interview I did with another blogger here, a feature of my outfit on The Denim Guy here and a couple of my sentences for a charity post on Gossip Fever here. Thank you again everyone! (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
This is an outfit I put together for a feature on the Diesel website. They sent me their new Jogg Jeans to style, along with some other bloggers, to put together as a collection/collage on their site. I did this for DenimBlog and I had a lot of fun styling a pair of pants that I wouldn’t normally wear. I wasn’t sure what route to go down with these as they are sweat pants mixed with a pair of jeans so I decided to crop them so they hit at the calves and roll the waist band over so the crotch wasn’t as low. I’m wearing the Diesel Jogg Jeans, a H&M white t-shirt and gold bangles, a Miss Selfridge black waistcoat and River Island white pumps/flats. This is definitely not an outfit I would usually wear but I actually ended up loving the look in the end. What do you think of it? I found them difficult to mix things with though, I wasn’t sure if I should try to smarten them up or if I should just keep them casual like they are. They are definitely so comfy though! The feature on the Diesel website has my photo and the other bloggers and you can FaceBook or Twitter the image you like the most with the icons below each picture. There are more images in this post and you can click here to visit the website. (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
Here is another little interview I did. This one was my second interview for Acid City Magazine. I spoke to them about the denim trends and why I love denim so much, how I got into it and about my personal style blog, Raindrops of Sapphire. You can click here to read the full interview on their website. (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
I did an interview with H&M a while back for their Summer 2011 denim issue. I have been checking in store for a while for the magazine issue and yesterday it was finally in there! If you have the UK magazine then my feature is on page 28 and 29. I spoke to them about the denim trends, styles, why it’s popular and more! I’ve included some zoomed in photos of the text so you can see the parts that feature my words. Let me know what you think 🙂
