Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Cosmo Blog Awards at the OXO2 Tower in London. I was so chuffed to have been shortlisted in the Best New Beauty Blog category, I never expected that would ever happen and am so thankful to everyone who nominated me. The night was lots of fun, I spent it with some of my favourite bloggers and met so many lovely new people. The cocktails were flowing along with lots of nibbles. Gillian and I had fun in the photo booth, obviously I am a natural at having my photo taken *cough*
I was kindly allowed to pick an outfit from Warehouse and decided on this black jumpsuit with white paneling. I wore a pair of strappy black heels from ASOS, that after two hours of standing up had to be swapped for flats on the way home, and my favourite studded clutch from Primark. I think no matter what you wear to an event like this you can't not compare yourself to everyone else, there was about a hundred bloggers in one room! I love this jumpsuit and think it is really flattering with the side paneling to attempt to make me look slimmer!
I knew I wasn't going to win but was so happy to have been shortlisted that not winning really did not matter. I work really hard on my blog and spend a lot of hours writing, planning, photographing and all the stuff that comes with it.If you have a blog too I'm sure you know what I mean! It's like my child (don't tell the puppy that) and I want people to enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy all the work I put into it, so to be recognised and shortlisted was a big honour and something that has made a really difficult 12 months seem a bit better.
Once again I cannot thank you enough for all the support you have given me with this, all of the good luck tweets and messages really made my day and I am so grateful to you for reading my blog and voting for Ellie's Ramblings if you did. Bring on 2014!
