I’d been counting down the days all summer like a Kid waiting for Christmas, and on Tuesday it finally arrived. The Cosmo Blog Awards. As far as I’m concerned it was the biggest event on my blogging calendar and one of the most important nights of my year (bar that whole marriage proposal thing back in Feb, I guess that was kind of important right?) I was absolutely gobsmacked when I initially found out I had made the shortlist for ‘Best Lifestyle Blog’, I’m talking heart palpitations, full on shakes and I even shed a few tears – okay more than a few. The nomination in itself felt like I had already won, I was delighted.
It was a two month wait between the shortlist announcement and the actual awards and I could feel the anticipation building up! I was extremely excited about the event, but I’ll be honest, I was nervous too. I’d never been to anything like this before and I didn’t want to be overwhelmed or anxious. So I met up with Frankie from francescaroberts.com (a fellow Lifestyle nominee) who was also a little nervous and we decided to attend the bash together. Held in London’s OXO tower on the River Thames, the evening was a night of glitz, glamour, cocktails and cupcakes. It was amazing to meet so many new bloggers as well as hang out with Bloggers I’ve followed for some time, such as Megan from TheBriarRoseBlog.com and one of my favorite bloggers Rhiannon Ashlee of FashionRocksMySocks.com
Unfortunately I didn’t win my category, but a massive Thank you to everyone who voted, it means the world to me that you did. The winner in my category was FitnessonToast.com who totally deserves it because everything about Faya and her Blog is amazing. We even had a little celebration dance on the beach (the beach being a stand held by Thomson travel who were sponsoring Best Travel Blog check out the cool sunglasses). Anyway enough of me rambling on about it, why not get a taster of the evening for yourself by watching my vlog and flicking through my pics?
