Today’s post is full of updates (hence the title), so I hope you’ll excuse my rather fleeting post today. I have had such a busy weekend, so I’ve got lots to tell you!
Travel Supermarket Bootcamp
If you follow me on Twitter, you will have probably seen my frantic tweeting all weekend, followed by the hashtag #holidayhealthclub. This is because I have been staying at No1 Bootcamp in Norfolk all weekend, along with 20 other bloggers – and the Travel Supermarket girls, in a bid to start looking and feeling great in time for Summer. It was a tiring, but very inspirational and motivational weekend – and I am so glad I went along. As silly as it sounds, I am quite proud of myself for actually taking part because I am usually the first person to back out of exercise, using any excuse that springs to mind. Waking up at quarter to 6, working out before breakfast – followed by 4 more hours of exercise and a 7 mile hike is tough, but it has proved that I CAN actually do it. There’s no excuse! I will of course be doing a series of posts about my weekend (there’s so much I want to say about it – it won’t all fit into one post!), but I thought I’d let you know what my tweeting was about in case you were wondering.
I’ve also been tweeting about the bloggers event that I am organizing in June, so if you’ve spotted the hashtag above – this is what it relates to. The event itself is entitled ‘Blogging & Cocktails’ and it’s going to be hosted at the very end of June, for beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers who would like to come along and meet other like-minded writers, photographers and (of course) keen bloggers. As well as cocktails, and of course – cupcakes (what blogger event doesn’t have cupcakes eh?), there will be number of beauty and fashion brands there on the day, doing demonstrations and letting you try some of the samples available. I’m also planning to host a live #bbloggers chat inside the venue and a little optional bloggers SEO masterclass (not run by me, as I know nothing). At the moment, I have about 60 bloggers confirmed and have little space left unless people drop out – however if you are interested, do let me know and we can have a chat! And, if you’re coming along – watch this space for updates. We’ll be using the hashtag #LDNBloggersParty if you want to join in the conversation!
Company Blog Awards 2013
If it wasn’t ahh-mazing enough to have been nominated for Cosmopolitan’s Blog Newcomer of The Year Award last year, this year – I’ve been shortlisted for Company Magazine’s ‘Best Fashion Blog 2013’! Thank you all so much for nominating me, it honestly made my day on Friday to discover I had made the list – and even more so when I discovered that some of my other favourite bloggers had been nominated too and therefore were going to be coming along to the Awards ceremony! I might be being cheeky here (you all did such a lovely deed in nominating me in the first place, I feel bad asking for more) but if you do enjoy reading my blog – I’d absolutely love for you to vote for me in the fashion category here. It would be an absolute dream to win (although, it’s astounding that I’ve even been nominated), so I’d love it if you could spare a few minutes to vote for me!
Thank you again! I will be back again tomorrow, hopefully blogging in the normal format! I just wanted to update you all with a few bits and thank you for your support.
