Cosmopolitan Magazine Influencer Awards 2016.

 So it is still so exciting to stay this but this year I was shortlisted from 10 000 nominations into the Influencers choice award category. Being shortlisted and attending the event meant so much to me, it was a night I will remember for a long time. I didn't win my category but honestly it meant so much just to be there. It was amazing to be in a room full of team internet, women and men who are super talented and it is great to have it recognised by Cosmo. 
 I want to start off with saying how lovely Zoe London is, she made the effort to come over and say hello. I am so proud of her for winning Content of the year, dam this girl deserves it. I love that she recognises who comments and supports her, I am a big fan of her work. It was lovely to finally meet her and have a good chat. She inspires me to create and go for my dreams. Congratulations Zoe!!
 The venue was in Kensington Gardens and it was stunning, as soon as I walked in I was amazed by it all. The Orangery was a beautiful location for the awards, it felt so special to  be there. The lighting was incredible and all the flowers made it a bloggers dream. It really felt special to be able to attend the awards with so many people I look up to and admire. Look at the beautiful ceiling, just wow!
 A little note to Fleur, now she is a women I look up to, admire because she works her butt off over on her social media platforms. You can tell by all the amazing content she creates, she is my favourite person who is a big influence to me. To see her in person again was amazing because I admire her hard work and dedication. A little fan girl moment but when I told her Well done, she smiled big and said thank you. She is a warm, lovely person who deserves all of the success in life. Congratulations Fleur!!
 This was the stunning location, I feel so lucky to be able to attend. I feel so inspired by all the amazing people who I met. I love attending events in London, traveling down from Manchester and this was the most incredible one by far. 

 The sponsors of the night Blossom Hill made the place look magical with all the pink flowers and this blossom tree was beautiful. I made sure to Instagram a few snaps and take lots of pictures near it. This made the room light up and I felt so happy to be there, stunning decor in a location only dreams are made off. 
 I want to say a massive thank you to Beth from What She Did because she made me feel amazing on the night. Beth kindly did my make up for me and my hair, I felt amazing. She gave me some make up tips that I will be trying out more and made me feel like a princess for the night. I work in a pet shop for my job and as you can imagine not very glam, I felt awesome for the awards and I cannot thank her enough. 

 My dress is from Asos and it is something new to me to wear, usually I cover up but I felt like trying a new style. I mean the bra issue of finding one to go with this dress wasn't fun but it payed off. The back has a cross over and a lot of my back showing. I might have changed the style of shoe I wore but they did me well, they only started to hurt towards the end of the night. 
The music was fab and she used to be in MIC!!

 I will be doing a review on my hotel I stayed in but I wanted to mention how amazing it was. The location was spot on and in a beautiful, blogger friendly area with stunning views. It was in Kensington and I really enjoyed my stay here. Free breakfast added to our stay and a comfy bed. The shower was incredible, making it great to get ready in for the awards. Than you Kensington Gardens Hotel, I will be staying again. I highly recommend if you are staying for a night or two or want somewhere with easy access to tubes. Honestly a great place to stay. 

What a fantastic night, I had so much fun meeting people and enjoying the atmosphere. Being in the same room as people I admire, who I look up to felt unreal. Being up for an award meant so much to me, I didn't win but what I got from the experience was incredible. Ive come home to the north feeling inspired, ready to up my game and enjoy team internet.

I feel proud of myself for what I have achieved and excited to create more content. Beth made me feel like a princess for the night and I feel like I can do more beauty content over on here. Can I do it all over again please, what a fantastic night it was.

Thank you again for all your support and I hope you continue to enjoy my content. Thank you for voting for me too. Please check out What she did, she's super talented!! Now lets work hard and see what the future brings, I am feeling so happy and proud.
