If I Were A…

I was actually inspired by this post that I saw on another blog a little while ago, to make my own version. It’s called ‘If I Were A…’ and it’s basically describing if you were an animal or object etc, what would you be. My answers are based on my personality and what I like, so I think they are pretty true to myself. For example, I chose a cheese-less pizza because I feel like I’m a regular person, just like a classic pizza, yet my personality is very different to most, that’s why it’s cheese-less. I also chose denim as a fabric because it’s tough and durable, in which I am very strong minded and a tough cookie, yet denim is also reliable, easy to wear and can be sometimes delicate. I’m not saying I’m wearable, ha ha, I mean easy to get along with, I would hope 🙂 I’m genuinely a very straight forward and honest person. Hopefully you can figure the rest out! I would love to know yours as well! If you want to leave some of your own answers in the comment section, I would definitely enjoy reading them! 🙂 If I were a gemstone, I’d be a pink sapphire. If I were a scent, I’d be… I wouldn’t, I am intolerant to strong smells. If I were a pair of shoes, I’d be black suede ankle booties. If I were the weather, I’d be a warm summers day. If I were a facial expression, I’d be a cute and sincere smile. If I were a car, I’d be a go-kart or golf kart. If…

The Little Things That Make Me Happy

I think it’s fair to say I have been dealt more than a fair share of rubbish throughout my life, which I try not to dwell on, so it’s always the little things in life which I try to reflect on that are so important and keep me going. I know I am wildly obsessed with clothes and fashion in general, and wearing something I have wanted for a long time honestly does make me happy, but the best things in life, which are usually free, are what make the days special to me. So, I thought it might be interesting to list a few things that make me smile and happy inside when times are tough. What are some of the things that inspire you to keep going? The love that I get from my pets, it’s priceless and they are part of the family. On a Sunday when my mum cooks a roast dinner, the smell and warmth radiates through the house. Simply holding hands with my wonderful boyfriend. Appreciating nature in the summer time while listening to the animal sounds. A smile or a nice gesture from a stranger. It restores my faith in humanity. Seeing years of hard work finally paying off. Getting really involved in a great book. That warming feeling in my stomach when I help someone out. Snuggling up and watching a romance movie. The way my boyfriend carries our camera and takes my photos without question. Listening to beautiful songs and expressing myself through singing. The butterflies in my tummy when my boyfriend and I first got together. Being near fresh water,…

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…

Q&A With Me, Lorna – Part 2

Here is my second Q&A on my personal style blog. You can see the first one I did last year here where I answered a lot of questions you wanted to know but I have got quite a few more to answer since then so that’s why I decided on doing another Q&A post for you all. Let me know if you want to know anything else about me and I will answer your questions for you! (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook) Why do you always wear jeans? Those of you who know me will know that I am the editor and one of the main writers of DenimBlog so denim has been my passion for many years now. I wear jeans a lot mainly because I am obsessed with them and I love them, especially when you find perfect pairs, but also because I do denim reviews every week. I like to plan outfits to wear with the jeans for reviewing but that’s really also my style, I wear jeans literally everyday… Lol. Sometimes I do outfits without denim in though. I’m sure it’s changed since last time, what are your favourite jeans now? It probably has! I still love all of the jeans that I listed last time but since then I have added Current/Elliott Stiletto in Canteen, 7 For All Mankind Gwenevere in Zuma Sunrise, MiH Breathless in Pinetop, Siwy Alexa shorts in Love Song, Paige Jimmy Jimmy shorts in Tigerlily, M2F Skinnies in Rose, MET Eco-Pelle leather skinnies and of course my Paige & Lorna collaboration jeans! I’m actually probably missing quite a lot…

Q&A With Me, Lorna

Yay! My blog is 6 months old today! 6 months! I honestly can’t believe I have had this personal style blog that long as it feels like only a couple of months ago I started out with it. The time is going so fast! As a special 6 month birthday post I decided to do a Q&A for you all so you can get to know me better. Most of the questions are questions that I often get asked by readers and interviewers, others are what I thought would be relevant and interesting to know. If you have any questions I haven’t answered then please ask away 🙂 (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook) Why did you choose the name Raindrops of Sapphire? I wanted something completely unique, something different and something not related to the content. I was brainstorming with someone about ideas for a name and I really liked the idea of having a jewel in it, I love Sapphires, especially pink sapphires, and I thought raindrops are very beautiful. Eventually Raindrops of Sapphire was what I decided on and I love it 🙂 How many pairs of jeans do you own? I currently have around 140 pairs of premium jeans. I’ve been collecting them for so long now! I have sold lots already though, if I didn’t I am sure I would have over 200! Do you smoke, drink or anything else? Nope, Nope and Nope! I have never smoked in my life and don’t plan to, I hate the smell. I am completely t-total, I have never drank alcohol and I’m keeping it that way.…
