As many of you will know, (thanks to YOUR nominations!!), I was short-listed for the Cosmo Blog Awards 2013, in the “Best Food Blog Category”. I was overwhelmed to be recognised (out of over 43,000 entries!) and last night was lucky enough to attend the awards ceremony.
I want to start by saying a HUGE “THANK YOU” to everyone who took the time to vote for me, and to everyone who sent me well-wishes on the day – the support on Twitter and Facebook was INCREDIBLE, and reading the messages made me feel so motivated and determined to carry on blogging, recipe developing and tweeting etc !!
I only started blogging last year and every day is a ‘learning day’ – I learn what YOU want to read about, what YOU want from a healthy food blog and also what new healthy products are on the market that YOU need to know about! I also LOVE hosting giveaways as, let’s face it, everyone likes a freebie 😉
I attended the Cosmo Blog Awards with lifestyle & beauty blogger Em Sheldon (from EmTalks) – fellow Leeds lass and previous ‘Newcomer Blog Award Winner’ last year, who took these amazing pictures of the event!
The event was amazing.. free flowing Pinky Vodka cocktails, delicious canapés & nibbles, and not to mention amazing cupcakes! There was even a goodie bag with some amazing Kusmi Tea Essentials in it (I like my tea!), plus a Photo Booth where you could get funny pictures taken and an illustrator (Clym Evernden) who drew lovely pictures of us!
So, on to the results… as you may already know, I unfortunately didn’t win this year 🙁 .. but **congratulations** to The Cake Hunter who came first and the gorgeous Model Foodie who came second! It was incredible to meet such lovely bloggers in person, including Sharon from House of Herby (Scottish food blogger!!) and the stunning Louise from Style Me Curvy (international fashion blog winner!).
Thank you again for all of your support, I wouldn’t still be blogging with out all of your comments, tweets, emails and messages so please keep them coming 🙂 .. and fingers crossed for next year!!
