Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well! I have had a super packed week full of mixed emotions - the stressed of going back to University and then attending the amazing Cosmo Blog Awards (last night). What a super incredible evening it was indeed - this was one of my first ever big blogging event experiences and it was truly a dream. Even though i didn't win i still feel so incredibly blessed to have even been shortlisted out of over 40,000 entires - it's insane haha! I just feel more motivated than ever to keep going and work harder than ever. A huge congratulations to all of the winners and shout out to my girlies Tash - Its Simply Beauty who won Highly Commended Beauty Vlogger and Gillian - Gillian Lee Rose who won Highly Commended New Comer with Next! I want to say a humoungous thank you for the ongoing support, for nominating me in the first place, voting in the finals and the ongoing support since i first started my blog way back in July 2012. It still feels like a dream that my blog has come so far under 18 months and i feel so proud to have my little place on the internet where i can ramble about all of the things i love. It is a great escape for me from the stresses of everyday life, work, University and everything else in between haha.
I managed to take a few snaps on the night so i thought i would share them with you. I felt so at ease when a group of us decided to meet up before hand as it is always nice attending an event with someone you know. I met the ever so lovely Ellie from Ellies Ramblings, Jess from Copper Garden, Tash from Its Simply Beauty and Gillian from Gillian Lee Rose, Megan from Thumbelina Lillie & Kate from Pretty Little Us just to name a few. Cosmo were serving canapes and cocktails all night long. There were three specialised cocktails created for the evening featuring the ever so lovely Pinky Vodka; Pink Raspberry Lemon Drop, Pink Kat and of course a Pinky Cosmo - ever so Sex and The City esk! The Photobooth was such a fun idea and we managed to go in a few times and take some cheeky snaps! I had the most incredible night and it was lovely to be whisked away to London and forget about reality for awhile. I met so many influential and inspiration people and i am really looking forward to what the future might bring (fingers crossed) haha.
Not only was the evening amazing but Cosmo really went all out with the goodies bags each of us got at the end of the evening, we were all saying how heavy it was - it was like walking with weights haha. I am not complaining though as they have treated us to some lovely goodies, it totally felt like Christmas haha. Thank you so much again for all of your on going support since Sophia Meola was first established - it really means the world to me. I hope you all enjoyed this post, please let me know if you would like a full post of the goodie bag we got on the night. Like always lovelies, if you have an questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment...they really make my day!
Lots of Love
