As a tradition here on Raindrops of Sapphire, I always make a post welcoming Autumn as it’s the most beautiful time of year for me. Not just because it means I get to layer and wear various clothes without being ‘too’ cold, but because of the pretty scenery. When I see the leaves turning that golden shade of orange and intense warm red, it makes me smile from the inside out. I never get tired of the gorgeous Autumn leaves as they are just so beautiful to me. They liven up my outfit shoots and inject a strength of colour that other seasons just don’t and of course they brighten up my day.
So, as it is now Autumn and the leaves are turning everywhere, I wanted to take this opportunity to add a few updates for you about what’s to come in the near future for me! I feel like this is a shared journey of mine with all of you as without you there to support me, it wouldn’t be possible. So thank you!
– Ok first up, I am going to be doing a lot more collaborations and sponsorships in a really fun and exciting way! I’ve just signed to be part of a sponsorship with a new company and I can’t wait to share that with you, as well as having some other really cool projects lined up that I can’t talk about at the moment, but they are extremely exciting and with some amazingly popular stores! So there are many fun things coming! One of them does include a very exciting denim collaboration too!
– Next up is the introduction of photography to Raindrops of Sapphire. I have been mentioning it for a while, but I thought what better time to start it than in Autumn? Photography is one of my passions and I’ve started building up a portfolio of my photos on my MacBook, but I think it’s time to start sharing them with you. I’m thinking of making a photography post once a month filled with a selection of my favourite photos that I have taken and also, maybe, showcasing the works of other photographers (like these photos). I can’t wait for this!
– Thirdly, I can’t even begin to explain the overwhelming support that I have received for The Jeans Blog. I started my new denim blog in June as you know and in those 4 and a half months it’s already gotten over 18,000 views, lots of reader interaction, the support of top denim companies and a ranking on page 1 of Google for multiple search terms. I’ve always wanted a blog about jeans to call my own and have the creative freedom to do what I want on it, so finally this new business venture is succeeding and paying off. I really hope you continue to enjoy it as much as I am writing it!
– And finally, it’s SALE time! Since Shopbop is a huge love of mine, I couldn’t not share with you the bi-annual Friends & Family sale event! You get 25% off your order with the code FAMILY25 at the checkout for 3 days only! Don’t miss it! They always have amazing brands and the latest pieces before a lot of other stores, plus my favourite part of free shipping and paying your customs at the checkout for international orders, you can’t go wrong!

As always, thank you so much for your support and I am really excited to share with you the new opportunities that are arising and popping up for me. I’ve been working full time and extremely hard, 24/7 on my blogs for over 4 years and I’m finally happy that things are starting to move forward even more! Lorna xx.
