I can’t believe that it’s been a whole year since the first UK Blog Awards – it feels like only yesterday! Back in November I asked you guys to #BeBold and vote for me in the Arts & Culture category. Thanks to you guys I made the top 10 and Graphique Fantastique’s fate was put into the hands of the Judges, Sarah Madden and Bee Barker. With the awards night fast approaching I’ll admit that...

What. A. Year! Looking back now, if someone had given me a list of everything that has happened this year back in December 2013, I think I would have laughed in their face. This time last year I was in denial, trying to put on a brave face and hold it all together: I had no job, no inspiration, no plans. I read my 2013 reflection now and I cringe. It took me 12 days...

I’m sure you will all agree when I say the festive season is a bit manic – lots of things to organise, buy and wrap as wells as visiting friends and family to spread love and joy before the new year is here. With everything happening at once, I was in my own little world and was quite confused when I arrived at work last Monday to an ambiguous text and two tweets: (Thank you...

Be bold? I’d have to be pretty bold to enter and ask you to vote for me in the 2015 UK Blog Awards after winning in 2014, right? I love being bold…or italic, but never regular (beautiful letterpress print by Cabaret Typographie)… Yes, my Young Persons Blog Award is still pride of place in my room and I still can’t really believe that I won. As I mentioned in my ‘In it to win it’ post,...

So talk about last minute, but I’ve been meaning to write a post about why bloggers should enter blog awards. TODAY nomination for the UK Blog Awards 2015 closes at midnight, and you should enter! Things that might be in your head right now: My blog doesn’t deserve an award. Awards are only for ‘big bloggers’. I don’t want to blow my own trumpet. Blogging is just a hobby. I’m not interested in awards. What is...

Winning the Young Persons Blog Award at the UKBA in April was an amazing experience – I met some lovely bloggers and gained confidence with my blog. After leaving University I was worried that my blog would either turn into a series of depressed  posts about unemployment or finish altogether. I’m really glad that I didn’t give up and turned my experience into posts which will hopefully help/support other graduates. I wasn’t sure about asking you guys to...

I can’t believe it’s been just over 2 weeks since the UK Blog Awards – time has flown! Lovely snapchats from Alice  & Sam, Jess, Lydia and Yuliya! Thank you again to everyone for all the kind words and support – it really means a lot! I’ve received lovely comments, exciting emails and a round of applause at the studio on Monday morning when they found out – I blushed! And if I didn’t already...

Oh, what a night! It seems a long time since the announcement of the finalists in February for the 2014 UK Blog Awards, but on Friday night it was finally time to get glammed up and celebrate. After finishing work, I rushed to Nadia’s to make myself look half presentable and then we dashed to St Pauls in search of the venue – The Grange Hotel. Lost, we hailed a taxi and was then asked...
