cosmo blog awards 2011

Last night was the highly anticipated, much mused about, Cosmo Blog Awards. The evening's festivities were held at 24 Kingly Street, in a maze of mirrors lined with Cosmopolitan cocktails, canapes and the obligatory cupcakes! It was a super occasion, mainly because I got to spend time with a bevy of brilliant bloggers who are just lovely ladies and a joy to be around. Despite the venue and sparkles on show, it was quite an informal gathering which was nice and meant we were at ease to mingle, play havoc in the photobooth and scoff cupcakes on the sly in the corner.

Luckily I had perfected my gracious losing face as sadly there was no trophy in tow this year, but all the winners were very worthy and I was so pleased for everyone, especially my fellow beauty blogging/vlogging nominees, Zoe and Anna and Sammi.
Here are some snaps from the night...







The girls pictured are:
Corrie, Lily, Zoe, Natalya, Fleur, Anna, Sabrina

One of the nicest touches to the evening was the showreel of our blogs projected on the walls of the venue, accompanied with a quote. This quote was one of the quotes that was submitted when our blogs were nominated. This was mine; it made me smile.

It read, "I love the way Milly writes her posts. She goes into great detail and her photos really pick up the essence of the products. Her style of writing makes it so easy to read, it is like listening to a friend. Her blog was the reason I decided to set up my own."
- To whoever wrote that - thank you :)

As I have said all the way along, I was just so happy, and honestly rather surprised, to be shortlisted and just thrilled for Pearls & Poodles to be recognised as an Established Beauty Blog. I would like to say a massive congratulations to all the winners - really well done. If you want to see all the winners, they can be viewed here. This whole occasion really highlighted to me how much blogging means to me. Not for the awards, the limelight or the fancy cocktails, but just for the sheer pleasure it brings me and the fact that I get to share that enjoyment with you all. So thank you.

Wow you look stunning!
I love your dress, that colour really suits youand it's a stunning shape. I love the heels and earrings too,they're both so glam! I'm a bit of a virgin to clashing colours and wouldn't usually be brave enough to put all these colours together but you've shown how well they work together, especially the pink and teel :) it reminds me of a dress and earrings that the character Lily wears in an episode of gossip girl :)
I love the top knot too, I so badly want to wear my hair in one but it still isn't long enough :(
Looks like you had a fab evening,those cupcakes are so cute :D
Take care <3 Holz oxo
