Cosmopolitan has launched its first ever Cosmopolitan Blog Awards and is asking ordinary joes like you and me to nominate their favourite blogs via this quick and easy form. The only other UK blog award shenanigans that I can think of are targeted at parent bloggers, so I am pleased that we now have UK awards that recognise a number of different blog categories.
I am not very good at asking for favours, but if you think that Miss Thrifty is worthy of a shout-out in the Lifestyle category, I would be tremendously grateful if you clicked through and nominated me. The nomination round closes at the beginning of August 2010, after which five blogs are going to be shortlisted in each category and put out to public vote.
As it happens, I was reading the latest issue of UK Cosmopolitan in the hairdresser’s earlier this week, and it had some sort of Bucket List feature. You know: “Things to do before you die” – something along those lines. Number two on the list was “spend at least £500 on one item of designer clothing“. This made me do a LOL – which made the scissor-wielding stylist jump, and could have ended badly – but does make me wonder if Miss Thrifty isn’t going to make the judging bods weep Diptyque-scented tears of sorrow onto their Mac Pros. Still, only one way to find out…
UPDATE: Miss Thrifty hasn’t been shortlisted – I can’t help but think that scoffing at the magazine’s dictum that we should each spend at least £500 on designer clothing didn’t help – but I would like to say a great big thank you to everyone who nominated this blog. The comments that you left here & elsewhere were so lovely! There are some interesting blogs on the shortlist, although many of them are dedicated to ogling/salivating over/buying stuff (zzzzzzz)… BUT I am pleased to say that on that shortlist, one money saving site stands out like a rare and splendid beacon. Vote for FruGal!
