Standing In The Dark


Dress - Reko / Cardigan - American Apparel / Belt - Primark / Necklace - Gogo Philip

Things just got really exciting... my blog has been shortlisted for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2011! First things first, I want to say a mahoosive thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate me. I never asked for a single nomination so the fact that some of you like my blog enough to do so really does mean the world to me. It was a complete shock when people started tweeting me the other night to congratulate me & it makes me so happy to know that people enjoy my inane ramblings! I must say that I feel completely out of place in the Established Beauty Blog category. I think I'm only in that category due to the amount of time I've had this blog. Some of the people I'm up against inspired me to start a blog in the first place. Plus my blog is fairly different to a lot of beauty blogs out there in that I post about a variety of topics, not just swatches & reviews of new products. So I'm most definitely not expecting to win but it would be wonderful if I got to finally meet some bloggers out of this! If you would like to vote for me please click here & enter your email address to see the full list of nominees.

I've been to a few birthday parties this week which is probs why my face is looking larger than normal (if thats even possible). I've eaten tons of cake & buffet food. It was my boyfriends birthday on Sunday so we went to Da Sandro's Italian restaurant. I didn't think much of the food really but these gorgeous profiteroles finished the meal off nicely. Andy had a steak which cost £20, not good when I'm paying the bill! Anyways this is what I wore for our meal out. I got this dress a few years ago from the muchly missed Superette shop near Brick Lane. I loved the Reko dresses they stocked so much that I bought 3 of them. Wowza, just checked their website as I'm writing this and they have some gorgeous new ones in for A/W 2011, how on earth did I forget that they exist?! I'm thinking I need to buy a new cardigan more than anything though because I do pretty much wear this American Apparel one every day of the week.

    It's my first time here and I must say I love your layout. This is kind of silly to say, sounds like I'm pointless praising, but I really liked your style and I'm definitely adding your blog to my "must read" lists :)
    Do I sound silly? Ha.

  12. Congratulations on the nomination, I love how your blog has a little of everything I think it makes it even more interesting to read as you never know what'll be up next :)

    Gorgeous dress I love floral (to the point of having half a wardrobe that's floral) this is one of the nicest colour/print combo's I've seen around and it looks fabbo with your hair.
