Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013

4 Oct

Hitched & Ditched are very lucky ladies indeed- not only do we love blogging about all things love, life and laughter, but we were somehow shortlisted by Cosmopolitan magazine in the sex & relationship category. Unfortunately our gorgeous Hitched couldn’t attend on the night, but Ditched put on her best clobber, back combed that bouffant and headed to the swanky OXO Tower in London for bloggings version of the Oscars. Here’s how she got on…

We were lucky enough to be shortlisted last year too, but knew this years event would be bigger, better and pinker- and boy oh boy Cosmo didn’t disappoint. Upon entering the gorgeous venue Ditched had her picture taken against the Cosmo background and felt like a mini celeb in the process, she then tottered away and was greeted by some lovely champagne- which was much needed to calm those ‘will we win’ nerves! As well as fizz, the lovely folk at Pinky Vodka were in hand to make a lush selection of drinks for a room full of blogging talent- we’re talking huge fashionistas, travel experts, foodies and event interior style icons.

As everyone started to mingle, Ditched met some amazing bloggers who deserve a huge shout out on here! My fave Fab Four of the night were the lovely Jen Stanbrook of love chic living, who is also a Nottingham lass and who won the best interior style blog on the night, Antonia of tidy away today who received highly commended in the same category, the gorgeous Sarah of the fashion ache , and finally the best dressed on the night (in our eyes definitely!) Jess of the travelista

As the drinks flowed everyone awaited to hear who would be crowned the lucky winners, and Ditched snuck to the front to grab a sneaky picture of the action…

We’re sad to say we didn’t win, but to say we haven’t actually done much on here for 2013, we are a million percent grateful to be shortlisted again- so a huge thank you to all who voted!

As the winners celebrated and the rest of the bloggers got rather tipsy, Ditched worked the room and enjoyed having a glitzy manicure, one too many cupcakes and tons of giggles in a fun photo booth.

At the clock struck ten and the curtain fell on another fab blog awards, there was only one thing left to do- collect the heaving goody bag and look back on a brilliant blog evening. We’d highly recommend any bloggers out there to enter next year, as win or lose you’ll have an amazing time!
