Some Photo Outfit Updates From Instagram

For those of you that don’t follow me on Instagram, I regularly share some photos there of outfits and details, that I don’t often put on my fashion blog. I love to be able to share in the moment snaps and quick pictures, without doing a full on photo shoot that’s usually required for blog quality posts. Since these are taken with my phone, they aren’t up to my usual standard, but I do love these pics a lot and felt like I’d like to make a roundup post for you so that you don’t miss out on my social media content! As Spring is here and Summer is quickly approaching, I’ve been ordering some new denim shorts, cropped tops, bikinis, and t-shirts, so that I’m all set for comfortable wear! I’m seriously hoping I will be able to go to the pool or beach this Summer too, since last year was a bust for everyone! My fingers are tightly crossed that I will be in the United States for the warmer months, so I’m planning on packing some of these pieces in my luggage! I’m also looking forward to getting my hair done next month! The 12th April is just a few days away and I cannot wait to get some normality back in my life! How are all of you? I hope you’re cheering up and looking to the brighter days ahead! Lorna xx.

Black Friday Sales + Instagram Photos

As it’s Black Friday week and Thanksgiving, I always do a roundup every year of the best sales that are happening so that I can give all that information to you! I’m publishing it a bit early this year as so many brands and stores have already started their deals, and I don’t want you to miss out! All you have to do is click the name of the store in blue/purple and it will take you to the retailer! There’s some amazing discounts to be had, trust me! And for those of you who aren’t interested in the Black Friday madness, don’t worry, I didn’t want to just make this blog post purely sales related, so I’ve included some of my recent Instagram photos for you as well, so it’s not straying away from my usual content. Hopefully this combines the best of both worlds and you can see the latest discounts and bargains along with what I’m up to! Lorna xx.

A New @LornaRaindrops Instagram Roundup

A shot of me listening to music on my headphones (Ed Sheeran) I know so many of you loved my Instagram roundup last time, so I’m making it a regular habit to share more photos with you every couple of months or so. I share pictures every single day on my Instagram account (click here to follow) and a lot of them are exclusive pictures that don’t make it on my blog so there’s two places to see my original content. I know not all of you have Instagram or follow me there though, so I want you to see my pictures too whenever I can. For those of you who do already follow me, I can’t thank you enough for helping me reach over 44,000 followers already! It’s amazing! I hope you enjoy these photos! As always, let me know what you think! Lorna xx. How gorgeous are my new Public Desire boots?! Relaxing at the park on a casual HOT day Feeling small next to my cousin (left) and my brother (right) A stunning sunset. No more words needed!

Photos From My Instagram

Just a simple black and white selfie with some extra volume in my hair It’s been such a long time since I did an Instagram roundup for you all here on my fashion blog! I know a lot of you follow me on Instagram anyway, but there’s still quite a lot of you who don’t and you end up missing out on my photos that I share there. I always feel like my Instagram is an extension of my blog and my life anyway, so it’s the place I always share things in the moment and whatever is new, while my blog is slightly behind in time since things are scheduled in advance due to it requiring a lot more work than just a simple photo upload with some tags. I think the last time I posted Instagram snaps was actually around Christmas time, so it’s been a good 6 months without me sharing any with you! Luckily, I’ve taken quite a lot during that time which I think are worthy of sharing with you all here! I did an Instagram takeover for Visit Bath quite a while ago now (as you know) so I have included some of those photos here with you too, showing you the shops and scenery of my city of Bath! It was so much fun, but of course I have things like selfies, new purchases, food and more, so there’s a whole mix of everything. I hope you’re enjoying your week! Lorna xx.

6 Ways To Naturally Grow Your Instagram Account

It’s been a couple of months since I did my last Blogging Advice post and this topic is one that I wanted to share with you, since it’s one that I often get asked and have been hired by companies to do for them as well – how to get a popular Instagram account or how to get followers on Instagram. These are very valid questions and there’s not one simple answer to it which is a golden ticket, but I’m listing the 6 ways to naturally grow your Instagram account that have worked for me over the years. I’m in no way saying I have the best Instagram as my account has 40,800 followers, so I’m well aware there are many out there with more followers than I have, but I have built all of those up naturally and I want to share with you tips on how you can do the same thing, it just requires a lot of time and effort. Interact With Likes & Comments We all get lost in thought while looking through our home feed, but do you remember to like and comment as well? One thing I have found is that if you give likes out to other bloggers of a similar niche to you and you leave them comments as well, they will most likely return the favour. When you leave a comment and like people’s photos, your Instagram handle shows up in their notifications which means it’s promoting your account to them, so it’s up to the other people to head over to your account and do the same. Not everyone…

New Photos From My Instagram

It’s been a little while since I did a Instagram round up, so I’m sharing one with you while I’m away in St. Ives. I post about 1-2 photos a day in general on my Instagram now as I want to go for quality photos rather than quantity, plus while I’m not able to go out as much, it’s harder to get as many great shots for you all. I can’t believe I am almost reaching the 40,000 followers mark as well, I’m just over 1,000 away. Thank you so much, to all of you, for following me and enjoying my photos. It really does mean so much to me. Some of my Instagram photos are among my favourites, so I’m really happy to share them with you on the blog. I know not all of you follow me there (I’m @LornaRaindrops) so it’s only fair that my regular blog readers get to see my favourite ones too. These are a collection of photos taken over the past 2-3 months, so I hope you like it! Don’t forget to follow me too as I’ve got lots of pretty St. Ives photos up as well! You don’t want to miss them! Let me know your Instagram usernames so I can check out your accounts too, I’d love to see what photos you share with everyone.

My Latest Snaps From Instagram

LornaRaindrops Instagram Photos It’s been a while since I shared any Instagram photos with you, but for those of you who don’t follow me on social media and only read my fashion blog then I think it’s nice to show you some of the things I have been up to, what food I eat, new purchases, outfit previews and some selfies etc here too as it gives a more, real and personal touch to my blog, in my opinion. I would love for you to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat actually, under the username LornaRaindrops as I do share some goofy things on both, especially Snapchat since it’s video! I never take myself too seriously. Anyway, all of these photos are captioned below each one of them, so do let me know what you think in the comments below!

Health Update

It’s been a little while since I updated you all about my health, and I had this post scheduled in for Sunday but unfortunately haven’t been able to do any work. I caught the flu on Friday night and have been suffering badly with it since. The usual shivers, sweats, temperature, sickness, body aches, cough… But it’s developed into a viral tonsillitis too and I lost my voice a couple of days ago and have the most sore throat, which is made worse with my cough. My voice has come back a little bit, but all it is is croakiness unfortunately and it’s really bad. I’ve just been in bed for days now, trying to rest and get better. I’ve been extremely off my food too so haven’t been eating much at all, but have been drinking lots of warm water and honey, taking my cold and flu tablets and trying to eat protein, fruits and vegetables, but it’s very tough. This is the worst I have felt in a very long time, so much so that it’s impacted my work. Adam and I had a weekend planned of a trip, outfit shoots and product shoots, but unfortunately it had to be cancelled and we both had to stay in. I actually ended up catching the flu from him, so we have both had a terrible weekend. He’s a lot better now though, but as with every illness I get, its length and intensity is always made worse because of having M.E. as my body isn’t strong enough to deal with it properly. I can only hope that the flu…
