If you don’t know what the Bloggers Blog Awards are either you aren’t a blogger, or you haven’t been on Twitter recently. They are a set of awards for bloggers, voted for by bloggers and organised by one absolutely fantastic blogger – Hayley at Tea Party Beauty.
I couldn’t go to the first awards last year, and I had so much FOMO watching it all unfold on social media on the day. This year I kept my fingers crossed that I’d be able to go, and I did a happy dance around the bathroom when I got my ticket. It was going to be the first blogging event I’d been to in quite a while. And so many bloggers I utterly adore and look up to were going!
Last weekend I headed to Leeds on the train and finally met so many people I’ve spent months talking to. After meeting at the train station a group of us headed to Trinity Kitchen for lunch before jumping in a taxi to Canal Mills. The venue isn’t far outside the city centre, and looked incredible. Exposed brick, and gorgeously decorated with balloons – so Instagram worthy!
After mingling, drooling over the Urban Decay Lipstick Vault and a few wines the awards were underway. I was thrilled that many of my faves won – congratulations to all! More mingling then the raffle. Hayley had managed to secure some utterly amazing prizes for the raffle. I didn’t win anything but that’s okay as I know all proceeds were headed straight to a cat charity :)
It was an absolute pleasure to meet so many lovely ladies including Sophie, Rihanna, Kayleigh, Caitlin, Holly, Imii, Sarah, Katy, Jemma, Rachel, Kirstie. There were so many other people I just didn’t get chance to speak to as well!
Hayley – you did an amazing job with the Bloggers Blog Awards and it’s an amazing thing for you to do. I can’t imagine how stressful it has been but I hope it was worth it on the day. And that you enjoyed a gin or four!
