What I’m Wearing to the UK Blog Awards Tonight | Wish Me Luck!

Burgundy pointed heels, blue clutch and patterned dress
The wait is finally over… tonight I’ll be attending the UK Blog Awards where I’m nominated for Best Individual Fashion and Retail Blog.

I just wanted to give you a little sneak preview of what I’m wearing and to say thank you for all sorts of reasons. Hmm that sounds like a premature acceptance speech, doesn’t it?!

First of all I want to thank (now that really does sound like a speech) YOU if you voted for me to be shortlisted way back in November – thanks to you I’m up for a major award, and for that I am truly grateful. And secondly, even if you didn’t vote, weren’t able to vote, or are a new reader, I’m still eternally grateful because without your support, interaction and love sent my way I wouldn’t be where I am now: blogging professionally and loving it. You guys are as much a part of my blog as I am, and the fabulous comments I receive and emails I get from my readers make all the difference to its success. I appreciate each and every effort made to interact with me and your loyalty is incredibly touching.

So THANK YOU, I love you all!!

I’ll leave it there I think – either way, win or lose, I still get to go to a big awards bash in a full-length vintage dress (this is a proper I-feel-like-a-princess dress, I can’t wait to show it to you in full in a proper outfit post) and that’s half the fun, right? I can’t wait.

Wish me luck – I’ll keep you updated on Twitter!

P.S. You can keep up-to-date with me @notlamb and the UK Blog Awards @UKBlogAwards on Twitter – if you tweet me use the hashtag #UKBA15 – to see if I’ve won! Any time after 8pm BST 🙂

    I'm only now managing some "catch up" reading, dearest Catherine…so wishing you good luck after the fact is rather pointless. Still, I wanted to let you know that NO ONE – in my humble opinion! – could deserve that award more than you; and regardless of whether you won or not, you are my personal style blogging HERO!! XOXO
