Apologies in advance for the photo heavy post, trust me I've cut them down there could of been a hell of a lot more.
I was lucky enough to meet up with three beauts before the event, Adora, Abbie and Sade. The thought of turning up on my own wasn't ideal, so I was so grateful to have such lovely company for the day. Being the oh so typical bloggers that we are, we stopped off to get a few cheeky outfit snaps of each other. How gorgeous do they all look!? After we finished our photo sesh, we were stopped by a TV crew filming for bravo and we somehow ended up being roped into being filmed..without even reading it we signed a contract...later worrying what we'd actually agreed too...did we sign our soul away, or worse?!
Once we arrived to the event we were greeted by lovely staff giving us drinks vouchers and telling us to help ourself to free champagne...I instantly felt like I was living in luxury, surrounded by gorgeously stylish girls sipping champagne and picking at sushi. When I started my blog less than a year ago I never imagined I'd be here. Me and the girls swanned around mingling with others, sometimes feeling like a bit of a crazy fan girl as some of the bloggers there I've followed for years...in a slightly stalkerish non crazy way. New Look sponsored the night and there was gorgeous items spread around for us to gawp at. My favourite part had to be the photobooth myself, Abbie and Adora piled in with blue wigs and crazy sunglasses and got some cheeky snaps. We even had the chance to get a bit creative as Pinned it! Made it! had a stand where you could make your own sunglasses...I will definitely be rocking mine on holiday at the end of the month.
The awards were announced and myself and Brooke were awarded highly commended in our categories, mine best personal style blog newcomer and Brooke in best fashion blog newcomer. It was pretty surreal and we were both giddy with excitement so we scurried over to the gorgeous editor of company magazine, Victoria White, to thank her for our awards and for such a fabulous night.
What an amazing night it really was, Company and New Look went all out to ensure everyone had an amazing night. Again a massive thank you to everyone involved, I'm sure I speak for everyone there when saying it was one hell of an event. Thank you again to all of you who voted and helped me get the highly commended award, your all massive babes.
