It was my first time ever being nominated and voted into the Cosmo Blog Awards 2014 Shortlist. I can say it was an wonderful experience going through the processes to reach the final day. On this fab fashion journey I had the pleasure of getting to know other bloggers on the list. We decided to make a plan and meet up before the event, which was a fab idea !!
This was me getting my face together for the awards, most know I am not a make-up pro but I know what I like and stick with it.
I have to say after switching my foundation, I love Illamasqua. The foundation was lovely and smooth. The other brands I used was Benefit mascara, and a mixture of Bobbi Brown and Rimmel.
The girls and I decided to meet up before we hit the awards!

The event was at the fab OXO2 Tower in London.
The room was filled with full of wonderful yummy goodies and amazing brands 🙂
The first place I ran to was the amazing Two Little Cats Bakery, where you can design your own little wee cupcake! It was delicious….. 🙂
I was in love with the fab art tattoo by Seekers of Sun. They are easy to put on and look so funky with any look.
After a little wondering around trying different things, the ceremony was about to start!
We were all full of smiles waiting for our catogeries to be called out.. 🙂 mine was Best International Fashion Blog…. I was definitely nervous!!!

Abigail and I decided to pop over to the Remington UK stand to get our waves we wanted 🙂
I loved having my hair done and it was so quickly , I think I might need to practice doing it myself that fast.

This was another lovely young lady Beth from The London Dolls managed to put eyelashes on me. Most of the girls that know me, knows I do not like fake lashes but I liked these ones as they weren’t over the top.
I know you can not see much of my eye make up but it was done by MUA Make-up!
