So last night, I went to London to attend the Cosmo Blog Awards. I was chuffed to find out I was shortlisted back in the summer, and that to me was enough. When you work super hard on your blog, although awards aren’t the be all and end all, it is kind of nice for someone else other than your Mum to say they like your blog. I did have to then decide what to wear, a lot of people go all out, but being the granny Annie that I am, I didn’t want to go too OTT as I had to travel there and back on the train and well you know it’s now October. So it can get chilly.
I did a few mad dashes round the shops, and finally decided on a cami, jeans and heels. Quelle surprise. I did push the boat out and buy a embellished cami… I know hold on to your hats. So I picked the cami up from River Island, who have some lush items in at the moment, my trusty black Leigh jeans from Topshop and heels from Primark. They looked nice, but my feet still hurt right now. £12.00 shoes..always a better idea at the time.

Anyways the awards were at the Oxo Tower, I met up with some bloggers I have been wanting to meet for so long, and they were all lovely! Suzie, Lauren, Caroline, Ysis, Alix, Amy, Lucy, Olivia, Kim are all babes, and all have amazing skin. Come on I’m a beauty blogger, this is what I notice! We had a fun night, posing in the photo booth, drinking cocktails and then awaiting the announcement of the winners. I was completely and totally surprised to hear my name called out for the Highly Commended Established Beauty Blog award. I was like ‘ WHAT?!’ I was all shaky and tottered to the stage like Bambi on Ice wearing my primark shoes. I was completely surprised, as I didn’t expect to get a prize at all, if I’d of thought I would, I wouldn’t of worn jeans!! So a big thank you to cosmo, and to anyone who voted and reads my blog. It really is crazy to think that something I started writing on my boyfriend’s laptop where I waffled on about my quest for red hair and nail polish has won an award. I came home to a trumpy puppy *back to earth with a bump* and a big mac. So yes a good night..thank you once again!!
Also today I’m off to go meet Sam and Billie from Towie (OMG) if there’s any burning questions you’ve always wanted asked, let me know down below or on twitter!! Right now I’m off, I have an important date with Pets at Home, (how glam) and remember today is the day Aaron Samuel’s asked Cady what day it was. It’s October 3rd.
