Cosmopolitan Magazine Blog Awards 2011

On Wednesday night I headed across London to SoHo to represent Judging Covers in the Cosmo Blog Awards with fellow reviewer Sarah. 
Cosmos at Cosmopolitan. I tasted one of Sarah's and it was rather strong (though apparently they got watered down a bit as the evening progressed) which made me feel not too fussed about my decision not to drink that evening!
I got very excited by the fact there was a Benefit makeup area. Even though I know almost all of their products (and own most of them too!) I always cannot help but going over to take a look!  The makeup artist tried Benefit's new illuminator/ highlighter 'Watts Up' on me, it looked okay and I think I'd like to go try it out at a counter where I can check it out in the daylight!
Sorry the photo is blurry, but I just had to show you these amazing cupcakes - they also tasted incredible, even if they were a bit sickly and I could only eat half! 
I'm really bad at putting names to faces, but from bloggers I already knew/ people who's blogs I'm a regular reader of in this picture we have  Jazmine, Kristabel, Lyzi & Jen.  I seemed to have missed Carrie and Olivia from the picture as I was squashed in between them!
The event was  sponsored by Stylist Pick, an amazing website I originally heard about on Rose's blog where you fill out a quiz and stylists pick out items that are exactly your style to shop from, and every item is £39.95 from shoes and handbags to jewellery. It was great to have a chat to the girls from the brand and to get to take a look at some of their fantastic collection!
They were way to big for me as they did not have my size, but I tried on these amazing boots - what is it with me and high heeled furry boots?
Anna with her beautifully illustrated 'Best New Beauty Blog' award - she really deserved it and I'm so happy for her! 

Even though Judging Covers did not really get a mention thank you so much to everyone who nominated us! We got some incredible goodie bags at the end of it, so look out for some reviews of some exciting products over on The Glossy Guide!

  10. We are less vigilant regarding the people that let the monsters to roam the countryside pay day loans banks
    and plastic card companies are only not giving unsecured
    cards towards the "poor credit" crowd.
