cosmo blog awards 2013 vlog and get ready with me

soundtrack featured; jorja, fight til i die

So last Wednesday was the annual Cosmopolitan Blog Awards and I did a little Get Ready With Me video to loosely document the process of getting ready. I didn’t film it fully, just a few bits and bobs to give a taster of how I got ready for the big event. I had Leanne and Chyaz with me at my house to help me and also enjoy the excitement of getting ready and generally seeing each other again. These girls have become real close friends of mine and it was a pleasure to have another event to go to as a team!
The awards was lovely, if i’m honest, much better than last year. Last year it was in a tiny little venue and it was too busy and in the end I just felt a bit boxed in and claustrophobic crushed up against everyone! This time round there was room to breathe, a fabulous view of London and a much more relaxed atmosphere – good going Cosmo! I saw loads of awesome bloggers, check the vid and see how many of your faves you can spot!
It was amazing to see so many of my friends win, especially stoked for Lucy (Lulutrixabelle) and Olivia (What Olivia Did) who won Best Established Fashion, and Leanne (Thunder & Threads) got Highly Commended in Best International Fashion! The babes that won my category of Best Established Beauty were Suzie of Hello October and Corrie of Dizzy Brunette 3, who are the perfect Cosmo babes and do such a fab job on both their beauty blogs, so I left feeling really pleased.
I hope you enjoy the video, and a big thankyou to you all who nominated me, this was my third year in a row being nominated, and that means the world to me because it’s so lovely that it’s nominated for by you, and that is what keeps me smiling! I really appreciate it, and I feel all the more richer for being nominated and having the chance to mingle in that room with a bunch of rad bloggers. What did you think of my Cosmo Awards outfit?
