The Cosmo Blog Awards 2013

Thursday, 3 October 2013













Hello Lovelies!  This week I was lucky enough to be heading down to South Bank for the 2013 Cosmo Blog Awards, it was like a dream come true to be shortlisted and I really did feel like a bit of a celeb for the day! Although me being my usual ditsy self, I forgot my memory card to my camera, even though I had bought spare batteries, I was so angry at myself! Luckily, I managed to snap a few photos on my phone, so please excuse the shocking quality, my Blackberry camera really is awful and I can't wait to get my hands on an iPhone! Hopefully when I get my hands on some more photos, I will be able to post them to my instagram page (@becky_derbyshire).

In preparation for the event I headed over to La Durbin Salon, a salon famous for taming the manes of many Made In Chelsea stars, which has been featured in magazines such as OK! Everyone there was lovely and I loved my hair and nails, it was exactly what I was looking for and they really listened to what I wanted and took great care in what they were doing. I won't say too much about this now as I will be doing a full review on the experience soon but you can see the outcome in the first photo. 

Before heading to the event I met up with Rosie, Daisy and Chloe so we wouldn't have to walk in alone, so once everyone had arrived we headed over to the event. I am so glad I didn't have to go alone as the room was packed with nervous and excited bloggers all enjoying what Cosmo had laid out for us and it would have been very daunting to go in alone. 

There was so much to do at the event but unfortunatley I didn't get to do it all as the event was quite busy and I was more interested in hearing who had won, after all, that's what we were there for. I did manage to get my hair re-curled by Electric Hair who were my saviours after the tube journey ruined my lovely blow dry! You could also get your nails done and fake eyelashes applied by the Vintage Cosmetics Company. 

Cosmo had also set up a photobooth which was really fun, so fun me and Chloe ended up going in 4 times! I love it when big events have photobooths as it allows you to take home a little keepsake as a special memory to look back on, so I will definitely be keeping them somewhere safe. One amazing thing about the event was the bar, it was all completely free and all of the cocktails on offer were made from Pinky Vodka, so they were all pink and very Comso-esque! 

When it was time to leave the event and sadly go home, we were given our goody bags. However these were no usual goody bags, they were huge, and very heavy! As you can see from the photo there were so many amazing things inside and I will hopefully be reviewing them all on my blog soon. 

I had an amazing time at the Cosmo Blog Awards, and although I didn't win, I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to anyone who took the time to nominate me, as I really wouldn't have stood a chance without you. You gave me such an incredible experience and one I will not forget, so I am extremely greatful to you all!
