The Irish Beauty Blog Awards 2015
Last night I attended the Irish Beauty Blog Awards in Dublin. I was honoured to be nominated in four categories, alongside some other wonderful ladies. The ceremony was held in Lillie’s Bordello, the venue was absolutely jam packed with bloggers from all over Ireland. Some of the biggest names in blogging & vlogging gathered together to celebrate Irish bloggers in style.
I must admit that the atmosphere was relaxed at the Irish Beauty Blog Awards. Usually these kinds of events can be quite overwhelming, but there was really good vibes in Lillie’s Bordello.
What I wore to the awards ceremony
On the night I wore a long black vintage dress, it was my great-aunt’s dress in the 1970’s. It think it is really glamorous, I love it so much! It was hand beaded and is still in perfect condition. I wanted to keep it simple so I wore no accessories, except for two midi rings I wore on each hand.
My hair was done by my friend Michelle, she attended the awards with me last night. What would I do without her, ehhh? I found some nice pictures of up style’s on Instagram a few days before and she braided a section of my hair, while pinning the rest to the back in a very cool swirly bun.
Getting the surprise of my life!
The awards ceremony started at about 9.30 pm and everyone gathered around the stage excitedly awaiting to hear who were the lucky winners. My blog was nominated in four categories, Best Fashion Blog, Best Vlogger, Best Overall & Readers Choice. I was sitting at a table with my friend and we were having so much fun, sipping some very strong rum cocktails (believe me, I needed some for my nerves!) nervously awaiting the results. I literally had my fingers crossed! Eeeep!
It was coming to near the end of the awards announcements and there was one category left that I was nominated in, readers choice. I was listening to the lady on stage explain how this category had a vote coming in almost every minute (wowww!) and the next minute I heard my name being announced over the microphone. WHAAA? I was literally in shock! I honestly couldn’t believe it.
I’ve been on such a high ever since last night and I just want to thank every single person who took the time out of their day to vote for me as Readers Choice. You have no idea how much it means to me. I know it sounds cliché but quite literally, if it wasn’t for the people who read my blog & the people who voted for me, this would never have happened & it means the world to me.
I am so thankful to such supportive people in my life, I honestly can’t believe my luck.
Thank you so much to the Irish Beauty Blog Awards, Tan Organic & BEUTiFi for this award.
Dreams really do come true!
