Last night was the Aussie Blog Awards in association with Her.ie, and I came home a WINNER! I won the Most Aussome Newcomer Award! I can’t believe it! I’m on a high as I write this, I’m just so happy! Honestly, I think I’m still in shock. I never, not in a million years, thought I would actually win on the night. I was in the newcomer category with some GREAT bloggers, they really are amazing girls and I’m so delighted to have finally met them in person!
Hearing La Belle Mama being announced as a winner was completely surreal, I felt like I had misheard or something! When I was interviewed by the lovely Michelle McMahon of Her.ie, I honestly just didn’t even know what to say. It didn’t even occur to me that I should have prepared something beforehand, I was certain I would not win! So, please don’t expect any great words of wisdom from me in that interview haha!
I really am so, so overwhelmed. I cannot believe that anyone thought my little blog deserved this recognition. As Noel drove us home last night, and I sat in the backseat of the car with my phone in hand – it was non-stop, just such lovely tweets and messages – I had such a huge grin in my face all the way home! I just never imagined anything like this, ever, for La Belle Mama!
I really appreciate this SO much! Thank you to everyone that nominated and to all of you that read and follow. You’ve made me so happy!!
Now, here’s a few snaps from the night:
Here I am with my beautiful aunt Carmel – and she’s actually a real Aussie 😉 She and my amazing husband Noel were my guests for the night!
With the amazingly beautiful Vogue McFadden!
The interview I was completely unprepared for…haha oh *cringe*
The PRIZE and a goody bag! I will definitely have some kind of Aussie haul / review posts up soon! I’ve loved Aussie 3 Minute Miracle and MEGA Shampoo for SO many years – this is honestly like heaven for me, haha!
And finally, the celebratory carb loaded dinner on the way home – hahaha!! Milkshakes are the only way to celebrate!! Maccas!
As always, and please know how much I mean it now, THANK YOU for reading x
