As most of you know from my Snapchat stories and instagram feed, I attended the Irish Beauty Blog Awards last Thursday night.
The start of the night was a bit of a disaster when the taxi driver decided to drop Sophie my plus one and I off at the wrong end of Grafton street which lead us to trek down Grafton street in five inch heels in the pouring rain while carrying two umbrellas we had to borrow from our hotel. Eventually, after asking about 10 random people on the street where Lillie’s Bordello was we finally made it to the event.
However, we quickly forgot about our little disaster when we got handed our goodie bags which were filled with so many goodies!(seen down below). Before heading off to the bar to avail of the free drinks we decided to get a few pictures together especially at the magic mirror which we got way too excited about! After a good half an hour of taking pictures we decided we needed a gin and tonic. Near the bar some of the sponsors such as technic, tan organic and fuschia makeup had stalls set up promoting their latest products. There were so many sponsors and the night wouldn’t of been possible without them!
As the awards got under way, James Patrice who was the MC for the night announced the winner of each category. Even though this year I only made it to the longlist I was delighted to see some of the other Wexford bloggers such as holychic.ie and itsaclothing nominated as finalists. Unfortunately there was no win for any of the girls from Wexford but you never know next year could be our year!
Overall, I had such an amazing night and got to meet so many lovely bloggers. If there’s anything that I have learned from this experience is that there is so much support for ciaobella.ie and for that I am so grateful! Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to vote for my blog this year I was thrilled to even make it to the longlist!
