OH HEYYYYY! #stylebloggerawards

Last week I took a 5 hour train journey to London to attend the Company magazine #stylebloggerawards. Having never been to London before you can imagine how I was feeling, if not it was a mixture of being nervous, anxious, scared, ecstatic, over the mood and very very EXCITED!

My train arrived in London and there is me thinking it's cool i've totally got this I know where I'm going, well boy did I get that wrong. I jamp on the tube from Euston in hopes that I'd arrive at Bank but oh no off I went in the wrong direction and ended up in Camden before I realised I was travelling in the wrong direction - oops! With a quick change and back in the right direction I made it to Bank then changed again to take me to my final destination which was Bethnal Green! I couldn't believe it I sussed out the London underground!

I arrived at The Travelodge (post coming soon) just after four, with the event set to start at 6:30 I left myself with very little time to get ready! Thank the lord for Cocoa Brown Tan 1 hour mousse. For the night I decided on an amazing co-ord that I picked up in H&M for only £20. I'm not one for wearing a suit it's not my style so knew I wanted something to make me stand out. The print was amazing, it was a mixture between paisley print and almost camoflague and I loved it.

I arrived at the event which was held in The Oval Space and met the lovely blogger Rebecca Coco outside as I didn't fancy going in alone. Entering the event it was such a lovely sunshine evening and the bloggers where out on top form, there was florals, pastels, kimonos and sunglasses galore. Jackets checked in and off we went, as we entered the outside terrace the smell of food hit me straight away so we made out way to the heck hotdog stand to try one out. They came in these little cute takeaway boxes and for me seemed to be the hardest thing to eat I had hotdog and tomato sauce all over me ha!

The heat outside was unbearable - remember I'm Scottish we don't get sun up here so we made our way inside to get some drinks. Inside there was different stalls for us bloggers to get some fancy things done mainly for the girls, so they could get some henna done, their nails, hair and visit missguided to see the latest festival fashion.

Event in full swing the winners where announced before we knew it! Congratulations to all who won, got highly commended and even to those who got shortlisted! We are all winners in my eyes.

Unfortunately scottnothingtodowithyou didn't win but I just want to say that I am so grateful for the experience and even being shortlisted. I only started blogging in October last year and for my blog to be recognised at such an early age means the world to me! So thanks to everyone who nominated and voted for me! I hope to be back again next year.

I met a lot of new friends on the night who I'm hoping to catch up with again very very soon!
