About two weeks ago now, I managed to nab “Highly Commended” in the Best New In Beauty category of the Beauty Blogger Awards 2016 – & I’m not mad at it. I’ve worked my bum off in the last year to get to where I am now, and boyyy am I proud. The awards ceremony was held at Olympia Beauty, and I got to meet lots of bloggers that I’ve been dying to meet for a long time – which was a major plus!

Even being nominated for an award was an absolutely shock for me, and with the competition being so high in all of the awards categories, I had already become at peace of the idea of just simply being a “Beauty Blogger Awards Finalist”. If this is where I can get to in a year, let’s see what happens in two.

Quick shout-out to my lovely boyfriend for coming with me to the awards for some (much needed) support as my anxiety was a bit crazy, which was amazing of him. Onwards & upwards, kittens.
