Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2011

Hi guys, so if your an avid reader of beauty blogs then we’re sure you’ll have heard all the hype about the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards! We were very honoured to be nominated in the ‘New Beauty Blog’ category and so couldn’t wait to hop down to London to meet with all the other shortlisters and attend the event, so here is our little adventure…

The Journey.

After getting past the ‘omg what do we wear?!?!’ hurdle we were finally ready to go, however luck was not on our side as our taxi to the bus station got a flat tyre and we had to get out and brave the Scottish wind and rain and treck it to the station. Never great, if this didn’t shake us enough our bus also broke down for about…AN HOUR. If you mix all this drama in with sweltering heat, screaming children and bad personal hygiene then you have yourself a megabus disaster cocktail….

Bathroom Makeovers?

So after our mammoth and mildly terrifying journey we dragged ourselves to the train station toilets (after copious amounts of coffee of course) and began turning ourselves from tired zombies to glamourous beauty bloggers! Not only is this process extremely awkward as your are faced with bad lighting, bad mirrors, bad resources, bad space but most of all bad attitudes from the poor souls around us that just want in to wash their hands as we dance about the only mirror in a crazy haze of powder and glitter! This aside we emerge fresh and fabulous and ready to go, Sami wore a lovely River Island Playsuit and Lisa wore a cute TBA dress.

We knew we were at the right spot when we saw all the other glamorous bloggers and vloggers waiting outside the 24 Club. Once inside we were blown away by the amazing décor and layout of the event, and of course the ever flowing cosmos helped too (alcoholic or not). We took a wander around our surroundings and gawped at the wonderful nail art being produced by Sophie Robson’s team and the tips and tricks being shared by the Benefit Ladies and of course the ‘to die for’ bags and shoes being showcased by Stylists Pick. After a cupcake (or two..) we headed over to the photobooth to get a little keepsake of the event and showed off our best Awards ceremony poses.


We had a little ‘omg’ moment when we saw our blog homepage projected on the wall alongside all the other shortlisters, Beauty Aesthetic hit the big screen!

So it was time for the awards and we’d just like to give a big congratulations to all the winners and runners up especially to Vivianna from Vivianna Does Make-up who won the award in our category Best New Beauty Blog. There was never a more deserving winner!

As we were leaving the event we met some lovely relationship bloggers from Climbing Ritzi’s Ladder, 52 First Dates and Guys Boys & Men and we decided to go for some dinner.  We went to a lovely little pizzeria and shared our stories of beauty, men and of course a bottle of wine. Afterwards we headed off to a cosy little pub for some more wine and some more hilarious anecdotes. It was a lovely end to our eventful day, and of course we were hoping the vast amount of rose would be enough to knock us out for the bus journey home ha ha!  Unfortunately we didn’t get any pictures with them but as they are anonymous bloggers that would ruin the surprise, though we can tell you that they are all very beautiful and hilarious girls!

We had such a wonderful time and would just like to thanks Cosmopolitan for letting us be involved in such a great event, and to everyone that worked hard to make the night such a success. It was great to meet other bloggers and discover some new blogs to read.
