What A Night: The Cosmo Blog Awards 2013


Wednesday night was the Cosmo Blog Awards, in association with Next – the first blogging event I have been to.

This is an annual event that has been going for four years and recognises bloggers across various categories, from Beauty and Food to Travel and Relationships.  Year on year it has had a massive response – this year there were a staggering 43,000 entrants!  I was fortunate to be shortlisted in the Best Home Interiors Blog category, voted by followers and a judging panel, and invited along to the awards event at the OXO Tower in London, along with 6 other interiors blogger finalists.

Amazingly, my little blog received a ‘highly commended’ award – to say I was surprised is an understatement!  I had to be pushed through the crowds to go up and collect my certificate and Next goody bag.Blog awards me

We had a fantastic night – I got to meet up with Jen from Love Chic Living who was the winner on the night in our category, so well done, Jen – big congratulations.

We met outside so we could go in together – it was a little daunting!  But we soon got chatting to other bloggers. Cocktails were flowing all night and we could enjoy some photo booth fun, hairstyling, make-up and nails.


The other finalists in our category included Jenny from The Treasure Hunter, Caroline from Patchwork Harmony and Sam from Design Lovers Blog.


After some more partying and a few more cocktails we headed off with another goodie bag – what a fab night and so completely different from my usual Wednesday nights in!


Thank you to Cosmo, NEXT and all the sponsors who ensured we had a such great time on the night.

Also to the Ibis London Blackfriars hotel who accommodated me and last but not least everyone who voted for my blog xxx
