Life Via Instagram Lately – @LornaRaindrops


An outfit preview of one of my looks I published a little while ago.

It’s been a little while since I shared an Instagram post with you, so I have selected some of my favourite photos from over the past three or so weeks. I don’t post all of my Instagram photos on my blog though, as I like to keep some exclusivity on there, so make sure you follow my account @LornaRaindrops to keep up to date with what I am doing. I always post outfit previews, scenery from when I’m out, my cats, new purchases etc, so it’s a great way to follow me! It’s one of my favourite social media platforms!

Anyway, onto life lately… It’s been pretty quiet for me. I know it’s a terribly British thing to do, to moan about the weather, but honestly we have had some of the worst weather ever lately. We have had huge storms which have knocked trees down all over and even killed some people unfortunately and smashed their homes. It’s been a constant amount of rain, every single day and grey skies. Also, since our clocks went back last weekend, it’s now really dark at 5pm, which I have never been a fan of. I like daylight too much! So with all that being said, I haven’t left the house for a whole week. I have stayed in, kept warm and dry and have been avoiding it. I can’t say I have much to report in terms of excitement, but I am off to London this week! Very soon actually and will be documenting my trip via Instagram like I always do, so stay tuned for that. I hope the weather will be better, I really do! I don’t like the idea of wandering around London in the pouring rain. It happened to me last time and I was soaked and uncomfortable for the rest of the day. I am very excited to see the new styles from brands though! I’m going to be seeing Paige, AG Jeans, 7FAM, Ksubi, Warehouse, Storm, PRPS, A.N.D and more! I can’t wait to share those with you!


I was walking along the street in town and looked up, this looked like it would make the perfect photo from where I was stood, so I snapped it. I love how it turned out and I really do love living in an historical town.


This was the gorgeous view by the river from last weekend, before the storm came in. The leaves looked so pretty!


Hey mum! What’s this down here?


A quick snap on a country walk with my Hunter wellies in Navy Gloss.


Look at me mum! I’m so adorable, posing like this for you! Rub my belly!


An outfit preview/selfie of one of my looks to publish this week!


Fuchsia Gerbera’s are my favourite flowers! I love that they have them on the table of my favourite Italian restaurant.  This was taken about 3 weeks ago when the weather was much nicer!


A photo of what it’s been like here for the past week and a half, constant grey skies and rain.


I got selected to be a part of Access All ASOS, which is an awesome system! I will probably be able to share more with you about it soon!


Another gorgeous view on a country walk. I love Autumn!


My Michael Kors Slim Runway watch in silver paired with my beautiful Bibi Bijoux bracelet. It’s amazing! I will show the bracelet in more detail soon, but isn’t it pretty?


Showing a preview of my Halloween outfit! Meow!


I saw these Paige jeans at the press day earlier this year and fell in love with them! I found them on eBay for an amazing deal which I could not pass up! So they now belong to me!


A shot of the church with a grey sky above, it looked kind of arty and eery at the same time!


This is the Poppy ring I was telling you about before, from Jon Richard. It’s made specifically for the British Legion Poppy Appeal and it’s a much more inventive take on the paper poppy brooch people normally pin to their tops or jackets. It costs £12, but £3.60 of that goes to the charity. You can buy it by clicking here.


Some brand new AG Leggings I also won on eBay for a great deal! Love the studs!


An eery grey sky again! I’m really getting used to this now!


This shot came out really cool I think. It was a dark and rainy night when I went to go meet my boyfriend at the train station, the car lights in front looked pretty!
