Finally, the night of the UK Blog Awards 2016 arrived on Friday! It felt like I had been waiting for so long since I was shortlisted and I am so happy to announce my blog was highly commend in the Fashion and Beauty category! The night consisted of champagne and canapés in a beautifully decorated function suite in the Park Plaza Hotel Westminster Bridge, where I was staying whilst in London. The main sponsor, Odeon Cinema, had it's very own pop up cinema screen with popcorn and a movie preview in the middle of the celebration. It was lovely to meet some of the finalists in person, who I had only previously met virtually, as well as brand representatives and others in the industry. I was so happy to have my family and friends with me at the event and there and appreciated their ongoing support. What a wonderful night!
After being shortlisted for the Fashion and Beauty category back in February, I was on the hunt for the perfect look to wear to the awards. As you all know I'm a huge fan of Australian brands especially Bless'ed are the Meek. Having previously purchased from this label, I knew their items are of high quality and are a good fit. Australian brands are so fashion forward and not ridiculously over priced! When I found this dress online I was in awe. Bell sleeves and plunging necklines are not only so on trend, they are also my favourite details currently. I'm always looking for plunging necklines, low-backs or oversized, ruffled sleeves.
This simple yet striking dressed didn't need much to complete it. However, these amazing Melinda Maria crystal drop earrings completed this elegant look. They sparkle like nothing I've ever seen before. I'm pleased to say I am collaborating with this brand so you will be seeing a lot more of their beautiful jewellery in my coming looks - I have a feeling you will all love their delicate necklaces and rings as well as their statement bangles as much as I do!
I would like to thank The UK Blog Awards for an amazing evening for all of the finalists! I would also like to thank my parents, my sister, my boyfriend and friends for their support in the last two years of blogging! Finally, thank you to everyone who voted for my blog to get me to the final and to all of my loyal readers. It means the world to me that so many people support my passion!
My next posts in Covent Gardens and Chelsea are coming in the next couple of days!
