October has been a whirlwind. A hurricane. A freakin cylone.
I wanted to catch you all up in the easiest way I could… which is why I am sharing with you photos on photos on photos, as well as brief descriptions of what I did, where I went, who I was with…You know, that type of thing. I’ve been off hilter since the trip with when it comes to my school work, blog work…I’m just now getting into the swing of things!
Here are the photos composed from Instagram, Facebook and blog posts from my impromptu trip to London for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards.
The stunning winner of the “Best International Fashion Blogger”. Louise is a plus size model and style blogger that raises awareness for all women to love all of their shapes! The absolute sweetest girl ever: Alina of The Fairytale Pretty Picture! I met her through my London friend, Monica…we got our nails done at the show. Yes, I said at!
There were many booth-like sections at the event: a place to do your hair by Remington, take selfies with Thomson, get your lashes with The London Dolls, and your nails done with IZ Beauty of London. There was even a Build-Your-Own-Cupcake thingy with Two Little Cats Bakery. And let me tell you, it was the best cupcake I’ve ever had…and I’m a cupcake enthusiast!

Oh, and there were every type of drinks everywhere…and free, all night long.
Okay, now onto day three! (Day 1 was horrid, btw. It was raining, it took me forever to find an app to contact my family at home and I found out I had the wrong currency. WOMP.)
I met up with my friend from school, Darin, who’s currently studying abroad in England’s St. Mary’s. He took me to Victoria where we had brunch, toured a little, visited vendors and shopped at TopShop and Zara!
Thankfully, he understands my blogger needs and has an artistic eye – he took all my photos for that day! 🙂
Last moment inside the London Westminster DoubleTree Hotel: My beautiful view:
That’s it, adorners! Thank you all so much for your votes! I just had to reiterate how much I’m grateful for you all…The Cosmopolitan Blog Awards with Next 2014 had over 46,000 entries and on top of that, 37,000 more votes. Crazy, huh? I can’t wait to see where God brings this blog next.
