A UK Top 10 Finalist | The Awards Ceremony

We were honoured to be shortlisted as a Top 10 Finalist in the UK Blog Awards 2016 (thank you to everyone who voted and got involved!). Before we knew it the day was upon us and we were hurtling towards London by train to begin the adventure…

There were over 74,000 votes this year and 600 brands and bloggers spent the night celebrating the blogging industry in Westminster. There was a really celebratory mood and short talks were given by industry leaders on the way in which we have this unique platform on our hands in which to share journeys, experiences and our being.


The evening was sponsored by many companies but the primary sponsor was Odeon Cinemas and their talks focused on the way in which storytelling has become more democratic in the digital age. They had the BFG roaming free and bubble magicians with lit-up blossom trees and candles hanging through the branches. It was magical set design..

We didn’t win our category (Make Wealth History rightly won) but it was amazing to see the blog up in lights!

After the ceremony we mulled about at the odeon pop up cinema, watched the bubble man create unfathomable shapes and drank cocktails of which we couldn’t tell the ingredients.


We then walked back alongside the Thames. The London Eye was lit up as were the blossom trees and there was a really lovely jovial environment to soak in as we made our way to catch the last tube of the night.

Before we knew it we were back at the amazing Orchid Way (our accommodation for the mini-break). It’s amazing to open the door to your own mews house just off Russell Square. More on that soon…
