cosmopolitan blog awards 2012
I was in two minds about doing this type of post. On one hand Im not sure how I really feel about blog awards (who are magazines to judge if a different medium is good or not?) but on the other hand I'm sure if I did actually win I'd probably be pretty happy about it (fickle soul)! I know I was a bit grouchy when the nominations came out for this as my Fashion blog wasn't up for Best Fashion Blog. To me, this blog has always been my side project, and in all honestly it didn't really occur to me that this was of that sort of standard to be "up there" as a Best New Beauty Blog. I dunno, I guess initially it felt like being snubbed for an Oscar or something!
I started this blog because I was getting a bit fed up of just fashion blogging. Posting about what you wear is a little bit boring when done to excess, and to most peoples surprise I actually prefer beauty stuff to fashion. The majority of the blogs I read religiously are beauty ones and the things I spend most of my money on are beauty related. Personally find it pretty easy to throw together a good outfit but finding the right skincare or the perfect smudge proof black eyeliner is the girl equivalent to finding a needle in a haystack!
I think it's really made me realise how far I've come with this blog in such a short ammount of time. I think it made me realise that people don't just know me for my fashion blog anymore and it's probably about time that I can legitimately call myself a Beauty Blogger! So yeah, it would really lovely if you took the time to vote for me. No pressure though as there is some pretty stiff competition! I'm under "Best New Beauty Blog" and you can vote here. Thank you if you do, and fingers crossed (:
