Hello all! Firstly I should have done this post the day before the awards as I couldn't find room for my clutch bag so had to leave it at my parents for them to send back up! So my outfit isn't quite complete, but I will put an image up for you to see as it is gorgeous :)
I was kindly sent this amazing dress from Wishwantwear which for those of you who don't know is a company where you can hire out designer dresses for any occasion and at a very affordable price! It's very me as I love lace and pretty patterns so I chose that one for the awards, thankfully it fitted wonderfully as I was worried about it. They have loads of designers to choose from so you'll be spoilt for choice!
Well, as you all know I was short listed for Best Personal Style in the Company blog awards, AND I WON!!!! I can't explain how grateful I am for everybody who voted, it means the world to me so thank you very much <3 I was really nervous when I arrived (as was everyone) so quite quickly made my way to the bar for some champagne which was lovely (may have had one too many hehe). There were lots of stalls and beauty bits to get involved with which was lovely, and generally getting to meet other bloggers!
Then the awards started and my category was up first which I wasn't expecting, and an even bigger shock was that I won!
After the awards were finished I carried on drinking and mingling with others, throughout this event I was accompanied by the wonderful Sophie and Alex who are wonderful girlies. I also had the pleasure of meeting Tolly, Megan and Rhiannon. I also had the chance to meet Victoria White (editor of Company) who was so fabulous and down to earth :)
Our goody bags were amazing too, including GlitzyandGlam, Soap&Glory, Paul Mitchell and many more so I can't wait to use/wear them all! Since winning I've been overwhelmed with the amount of emails, tweets, comments I've had it's just simply amazing and it all happened over night! I hope this will make my blog grow more and I can share my posts with everyone. Thanks again to everyone who voted, you are stars <3
Love, Ella xo
P.S I am in July's issue of Company magazine, on their website and in their awards video! Check it out.
