On the 2nd October I headed up to London's OXO tower, and its glamorous views for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013 party/presentation! I was shortlisted in two categories: 'Best Established Fashion Blog' and 'Best Beauty Vlog' which was incredible to me. For such an awesome event, I needed a dress just as amazing. Step in Wish Want Wear who are a dress hire service in London. They kindly offered to send me a dress to wear from their amazing website, which is a rental service jam packed with gorgeous designer dresses!
I chose this Notte by Marchesa 'Vivaldi' gown, as I've never worn a floor length dressy dress and it looked so elegant. The hire price of this dress is £175, but the RRP of the dress is a whopping £925, so if you want to be a princess for a night, I highly recommend it. WishWantWear offer the chance to have an extra size sent to you if you are unsure which will fit, the also cover you against minor damages like spills and rips, so no need to worry! I found the whole service really great and I felt so glamorous.
The event itself was a fantastic, glitzy affair with cocktails (cosmo's of course), eyelashes, manicures and hair styling on offer! I met some girls I'd been wanting to meet for ages- namely the stunning Corrie and Ysis and got to see some of my fave girls who I've partied with before: Paige, Zoe, Georgie, Rhiannon and Olivia! Unfortunately I didn't win in my categories, but Tanya Burr and Olivia took the crowns, so two well deserved winners, I'm sure you'll agree! Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for me, it meant the world!
