Hi Everyone

I’m still on a high from Saturday nights win at the Irish Blogger Association awards. I actually couldn’t believe it. There were so many brilliant blogs in my category I never thought I stood a chance at all. The excitement was unreal. I had the best night ever. I’m sure You could all tell that from my snap story. Such fun I loved every second. The awards were arranged by Fiona from Cool events.ie

Those of You who know Me well, know that I had been feeling very down since losing our Mum in August. It has been one very difficult year for us as a family. Winning this award really helped to get back my sparkle. It was just the little boost I needed and it’s lovely to know people love what I’m doing with my blog. So basically I’m still buzzing from the excitement of Saturday night.

The awards were held in The Raddisson Golden lane in Dublin. It was a fantastic night with some amazing people and the food was amazing.

My buddies Champagne & high heels blog, Soso Dempo & shapes and shadows. You’ll find these ladies on Snapchat Sam is (candhhblog) kim is (kimdempo) and Amy is (shapesndshadows)

The winning moment was so funny, as I dropped the phone with the shock. My reaction was priceless. You can watch it here.

Afterwards We headed out to celebrate with Karen from Declare skin care Ireland. Rita from StyleYourWay.ie and their hubbys and also another couple Aoife & Brian. It was great fun and I experienced Coppers for the first time. Brilliant night with some lovely people. Let’s just say there were a few drinks consumed that night.

So that’s it folks, I want to thank everyone for all your lovely comments and snaps to congratulate me. It was the best fun ever. It’s a huge achievement for me and I’m delighted to bring this award to the West.
