Yo! Take a look around, get stuck in, and hopefully you'll leave feeling a little bit more empowered to ditch the trends and instead focus on doing you!

I WAS NOMINATED FOR THE HOME DESIGN AWARDS....... AND I WON!

I WAS NOMINATED FOR THE HOME DESIGN AWARDS....... AND I WON!

So a few weeks ago I found out I'd been nominated for the home design blogger awards 2014, run by bathrooms.com. It was pretty cool to even make it to the shortlist, considering this interiors blog has been running a grand total of FOUR MONTHS! The prize was £100 for the winner of each category (I was in the affordable design category) and then £250 for the overall winner with the most votes. I set about getting everyone I knew to vote for me. 

Then I waited.

Then I pestered more people to vote for me.

Then waited.

A bit more pestering. Calls to family members to vote for me hours before the deadline.

AND THEN I ONLY WENT AND FLIPPING WELL WON!

I'm only so bloody chuffed! I was beaming when I got the email. I won not only the category but was the overall winner with the most votes in total! I knew I had a good chance but being a new blogger I didn't know how strong the power of my 'fanbase' or audience was. But i was wrong to underestimate your powers my loves! You lot really pulled it out of the bag, and I owe you all a massive THANKYOU for anyone who took the time to vote. I know these things can be a bit annoying sometimes, having to register etc, so to anyone who made the effort, seriously, I'm really grateful. I hope this shows you how much.

Ahhhh yeah! How you like me now bitches!

So the real question is what to do with the £250 prize money. I am thinking the quest for the perfect vintage armchair... What do you think? Leave your ideas in the comments below!

AND THANKYOU AGAIN :)
