Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2011: the results are in…

Well, I didn’t know what to expect when I went to the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards last night – but with so many excellent blogs shortlisted, I certainly didn’t expect to win. But I did!

I haven’t seen many of the photos yet, but I suspect that I’ll be wearing this ZOMG expression in all of them.

A giant THANK YOU to everyone who voted for the Miss Thrifty Blog. Thrifty people rock! I’d like to think that the award endorses this little-known but surely incontrovertible fact…

Thanks also to the team at Cosmopolitan and to Handpicked Media, which sponsored the Lifestyle category. The lovely Debbie from Handpicked presented me with this beautiful winner’s certificate: an illustration specially commissioned from the artist Ros Shiers.

I didn’t take many pictures, because after the awards were announced I was stumbling around like a dazed fool – quite uncharacteristically, I even forgot to pick up one of the swish goody bags on the way out. However I did take some time out to covet the cupcakes and the pinker-than-pink cocktails, even if the latter were off limits for me.

cosmo blog awards 3 I also enjoyed meeting some of the other shortlisted bloggers, including Clare from, Kate from My Beautiful Chandelier and Kat from Rock N’ Roll Bride. Also Jenny from the blog, who took the bumpalicious picture on the right.

In the run-up to the awards bash, panic broke out on Twitter about what to wear. I guess it was understandable: if you were a fashion blogger and your fashion blog was shortlisted, wouldn’t you feel under pressure to look amazing?

As a money-saving blogger, it did occur to me that I could turn up in a bin bag and be perfectly on-theme (result!) but on the night I rejected the polythene in favour of this red ASOS maternity dress, £20 from eBay.

Thank you again!
