So, the Cosmo Blog Awards rolled around and here’s my outfit! I just want to say thank you so much to you all for nominating me and voting for me. It was an honour to get to that stage in such a big competition, but honestly, it was even more of an honour to know that people genuinely read and enjoy this blog. That was the best part, finding out that I had lots of cheerleaders rooting for me all over the world. I can’t tell you how that makes me feel. I want to give you all a big cuddle.
I was awarded Highly Commended in the Student Blog category, which is a near miracle.
Bolero: Topshop (from Charlotte!)
Leather jacket: All Saints
Face: In addition to the usual, Le Kohl Gloss in Pop Petrol under eyes, Bobbi Brown gel liner in Denim Ink, MAC lipstick in Lady Danger
Nails: Chanel Le Vernis in Péridot (which also happens to be my birth stone)
I had a really great time, mainly because I got to meet some wonderful women and put some real life to the internet personas that I’ve seen around for a while! Thank you to Cosmopolitan for running the awards, and thank you to everyone who’s given me a hand!
I started this blog in June with no real plans for it to go very far. It’s October now and I’ve already been named the runner up to best Student Blog. All I can say is… wow.
