What do you wear to the UK Blog Awards ceremony? Well if you’re me, you plump for a full length rose gold sequined dress with a cowl back. Let’s face it; if there is ever a time to really go for it and pull out of the glamour stops it’s got to be for an event such as this. And pull them out I certainly did!
I took my time getting ready for my 6.30 pickup, by a brand new BMW 7 Series no less which whisked me to The Park Plaza Hotel. The theme of the evening was Roald Dahl, which meant being met at the entrance by the BFG – he’s a big lad don’t you know!
Odeon Cinemas had waved a magic wand and transformed an area of the venue into a mini cinema – complete with popcorn to nibble on.
The pre-ceremony fizz was free flowing (unlike last year I only had the one glass before the ceremony – yeah, I got a bit tipsy last year and didn’t want a repeat performance), the cute canapés were delicious and the room was filled with bloggers dressed in their finery and networking their little socks off (not that most of them were wearing socks, but you know what I mean).
The air crackled with anticipation and excitement and I crackled with static – yep, my ever-so-perfectly matched throw kept giving me static shocks. Not to worry though, I do have an electric personality – groan!
As you may know if you follow The Barefaced Chic, I didn’t win an award (what the hell am I now going to put in that space on my shelf?), but the experience alone was enough to smack my gob, and I’m hoping for a repeat performance next year.
So thank you all for voting for The Barefaced Chic, you really did make this blogger a very happy lady. And not just because I got to wear a rose gold sequined dress! 🙂
