As every fashion blogger, I love an excuse to dress up. The Cosmopolitan Blogger Awards provided just the opportunity. The ceremony was filled with joyous moments; some vicarious, some victorious. I congratulate all who won – there were 35,000 hopefuls who registered and there were only 170 who were lucky enough to attend this grandiose event.

I am thrilled to have met amazing talent – I am a keen reader of My African Closet, Hitched and Ditched, Beauty and Baggage, The Glossy Guide, Milk and Honey, London’s Closet, Lulu Trixabelle and all the other beautiful, savvy, stylish and inspirational bloggers that I had the chance to speak to.

A special wink and smize goes to the wonderful Amelie Appleby, the fun fortune teller, who told me what lies ahead. Apparently everything will just keep getting better.

I felt that flowers in hair got a bit boring, a bit too hippie-like, a bit too kitsch. Which is why I decided to wear one of my most prized possessions instead – the Swarovski necklace that my father got me for my 18th. This instantly added a sort of princess-like aesthetic to a simple little white dress (LWD).
For eye make up I decided to go for blue and yellow eye shadow, black mascara and high shine powder, all from YSL, a brand the products of which are yet to let me down. This was the first time I wore eye shadow sans eye liner, never thought a day like that would come. It did. Hallelujah.
