Wednesday 25th October 2011

Butterflies were brewing as the driver weaved through the busy streets of Soho, I felt nervous, excited and out way of my element. Outside a group of mostly female bloggers (although there were a few males dotted around) were busily chatting away to each other. I scanned the crowd, hoping, praying to recognise someone, anyone. I didn't.

We were let in to 24, i looked around and finally spotted a familiar face in the dimly lit venue. @BigFashionista from Big Fashionista was standing right beside the bar, she quickly introduced me to @RitziCortez from Climbing Ritzi's Ladder and @C_T_S from 52 First Dates who were also in my category. All i can say is praise the freaking lord that Big Fash was not anonymous, or else i wouldn't have recognised anyone and would have ended up slumped in a corner on my lonesome, drinking my weight in what i know know to be, alcohol free cosmo's. 
Alcohol free!? Sad face.

The awards were announced and though i didn't win, i felt extremely proud to have made the shortlist. The winner of my category was @sarcastathon, whose blog Nightmares and Boners deserved the win for the name alone! Highly Commended went to fellow blogger and all round dating hero @C_T_S, who is currently braving her way through 52 First Dates. Needless to say the girl deserves a bloody medal for the sheer amount of comically horrendous guys she's had to date.

Throughout the event pictures of the shortlisted blogs were projected onto the walls along with comments that were made about them. Mine reads:

 "Guys, Boys & Men is my favourite blog because it's got some really interesting advice posts and it is fun to read! Humour, great content and totally relatable posts makes it my personal winner."

As the awards were winding down we decided to grab our goody bags and head off in search of sustinance, we picked up two beauty blogger along the way @lisaandsami from Beauty Aesthetic who had travelled 11 hours from Glasgow to attend. Ritzi (our glitzy Soho tour guide for the evening) took us to a little Italian pizzeria. Unfortunately my strange dislike of practically most food groups saw me much on a giant plate of foliage. Yum! 
The Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2011 goody bag!

Then it was onto The White Hart for some proper alcohol, non of this booze free shizz! Plus we did spot Justin Lee Collins in there.

It was a pretty fabulous night for some pretty fabulous bloggers and i for one was proud to be one of them. Check out the shortlisted blogs here.
