The Golden Hour & Some Updates


We shot these photos last weekend when the sun was setting and it was that perfect golden hour that creates a gorgeous glow! I thought they turned out really beautiful with the sunlight shining through! But anyway, those of you who follow me on Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) will know that I just spent the whole weekend in London with my boyfriend for our 6 year anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been 6 years! The time has flown by and I’m probably even more happier now than I was in the beginning, I’m very lucky! But, that’s the reason why I haven’t posted an outfit post for a little while. Tomorrow I will be documenting my whole London trip via Instagram here on my blog so you can see what I have been up to! It was so much fun! I can’t wait to show you! I will also show you proper photos from the camera of the hotel, some of my looks, purchases etc over the week too, plus, I have an amazing giveaway coming up!

Since this is an updates post, I thought I would take the time to share with you a couple of things I’ve been working on that I’m excited about! I’ve written a big article for a local magazine about fashion which will be published in a couple of months and I can’t wait! It will be the first time that I’ve actually had something I wrote published, rather than a feature! Also, I’m working on a very exciting jeans collaboration again! I wont mention who it’s with just yet and I wont go in to details as it’s too early, but I really can’t wait! It’s going to be amazing! And a final note, it would be absolutely amazing if you would nominate my blog for the Company Blog Awards 2014! It’s really simple and easy and you can nominate me by clicking here. You can choose either ‘best personal style blog’ or ‘best designed blog’, whichever you prefer, or both if you have time! It would mean a great deal to me to be nominated! As always, thank you for being a fan of my blog! Lorna xx.

    Beautiful pictures Lorna, I love the bright pink sweater. Congrats with the 6 year aniversary with your biyfriend! My boyfriend and I are celebrating ours on the 1st of May, we’re also 6 years together then. 🙂
    I’m curious about your London pictures and also congratulations with your nomination for the company blog awards!

    Ok i fixed one of my posts. I’m new to blogging so i had to give myself a crash course for image inserting. Thanks for the criticism though, any and all is welcome especially from a seasoned blogger!

      Much better! It’s just nobody likes to read posts about clothes or fashion if there are no photos of them, photos are what makes the post as I’m sure you have figured out by reading mine. You are using WordPress which I have been experienced with for 8 years, so let me know if you need any advice if you are stuck!

    Awesome thank you! Please comment freely, i would appreciate it as well as like to hear any ideas about some of my posts. I am currently working on a Hunter Boots post, I’m sure youd like to give some input on that lol.

      Oh I meant input on the tech side of things, how WordPress works etc! It’s definitely better if you stick with your own voice for your blog, that’s who people associate it with! I actually have another outfit post coming up tomorrow featuring Hunter wellies! It’s been raining a lot here again!
