And the winner is…

The votes have been counted and the awards handed out as the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards 2018 took place on Saturday 19th May in London.

I was nominated in the Best Pal category of the awards. Although I didn’t win I am so completely chuffed to have been nominated in the first place. It was a really tough category which saw me nominated alongside fantastic bloggers.

I want to say a big thank you to absolutely every single person who took the time to vote for me – knowing that I received just a few votes has validated my blog in a way I could never imagine – I am chuffed to ribbons!


I’ve been blogging now since September 2017 so I am still in my first year so to receive a nomination in such prestigious awards is genuinely a surprise and honour – so thank you for my nomination and to those who voted for me.

This year was the biggest yet, with just short of 10,000 votes which is amazing!

BEST PAL category

Which blogger do you want to go to the pub with? Or maybe have dinner with? Who never fails to reply to comments, and has thoughtful things to say? Maybe they encourage the community through weekly challenges or blog parties. A blogger who makes the blog-o-sphere a better place is what makes the Best Pal.

Huge congratulations to my fellow nominees and the winners not only in his category but the rest too.


I didn’t get the chance to attend the Bash this year thanks to a certain wedding being held at the same time hiking up the prices of everything in London – maybe next year.

I followed all the action live on Facebook and it looked like a brilliant event – so hats off to the committee and everyone involved in pulling it altogether.

As a nominee I get to proudly display my nomination badge on my blog which I will do from now on!
