Hiya! I’m writing today with some amazing news that brought joy to my September. My blog We Love Home has been nominated for two blogging awards. Needless to say, I’m thrilled to bits. I did this fun little photo shoot in my best fancy dress to celebrate!
It was probably the best moment of my blogging career. I was so happy, I ran up to the stage without my shoes on. And I couldn’t stop stroking my blog award (a fancy piece of art) for at least a month afterwards. And I got to go to the winner’s lunch afterwards at Tom Dixon in London which was wonderful. I felt so spoilt.
Winning that award was a joyful little moment of sparkling in my 4 year blogging career.
This year, I’ve been nominated again as Best interior Lifestyle Blog at the Amara Awards – which is beyond amazing but also very nerve wracking. I’ve been busy canvasing for votes and hoping that my blog cuts the mustard with the judges. To share my excitement, I did a little dancing video in this outfit which you can watch here if would to celebrate with me.
I’m in good company too – as there are 10 others amazing that are also nominated in my category. I’m not going to sugar coat it, it’s tough competition. I would love to be shortlisted again!
In rather surprising news, I’ve also been nominated for a Vueilo Online Influencer Award 2020 for Best Interior Designer Influencer. This award is voted for by a team of industry experts.
Such a wow moment to be nominated for both! I’m not sure what I have done to deserve all this 🙂
The Amara shortlist is announced on the 18th September and then the Vueilo are announced on the 20th of November.
The awards do are going to be on virtual this year, understandably. So I’m planning to get a few of my other blogging friends who are also shortlisted in the Amara’s including That’s So Gemma and Melanie Jade Designs to have a bit of an online virtual awards do party. I’m still planning to get dressed up for the awards as I want something lovely to look forward to in the middle of winter.
Anyway, I wanted to share the good news with you! Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me.
I have tons more news to share with you (like appearing on a USA huge interiors blog as house of the month) but I have been so busy with my styling work that I need to do one huge catch up post to share what has been happening at We Love Home.
