This time last week I was getting ready to head down to Bonbar for the North East Blogger Awards, filled with much excitement and also a lot of nerves. Back in October I found out I had been shortlisted for Best Beauty Blog 2015 and I literally jumped around with joy. I excitedly bought a new dress (any excuse) and filmed my little video to be played on the night.
The night itself was fabulous! I got to catch up with some of my favourite blogging ladies (Helen, Amy, Amy & Laura to name a few) and also got to meet some amazing bloggers I’d been dying to meet, Freya I’m looking at you! We then took silly photos in the photobooth and drank prosecco to calm the nerves before the ceremony.
The beauty category was first up and after enduring my super cringey video, my name was called as the winner! I couldn’t believe it, I was up against some fab bloggers (Luce & Katherine) and little ol’ me won, I am so thankful and am so proud of my blog. My glass award is sitting proudly on my desk (next to my makeup collection of course) to remind me of my achievements and to keep pushing me to work hard. Someone check multi-award winning blogger off the list and then pinch me to make sure it’s real life!
After all that excitement I got to cheer on all the other amazing winners and have a jolly old time. A huge thank you to O PR for organising such an amazing event and to House of Savannah the sponsors of the beauty category.
