That Friday is here. Not Friday 13th as you may think, but it’s that Friday. The Uk blog awards Friday.
That morning was one of those morning where I was so excited to wake up, and also wasn’t. It has been a year since I have started blogging. Ambitiously I signed up for the Uk blog awards, and thanks to my followers, I was voted a finalist.
Now that Friday finally came and I was shitting bricks. Sorry for swearing. Going back to London was actually just what I wanted after almost 5 months of non stop travelling. I missed it, even though Croatia is already experiencing summer , returning to the cold was not so worrying.
I packed everything I have put away for winter. I heard it’s snowing in London. Just the day before I spend hours in some newly discovered second hand shop and bought dozens of new shirts and sweaters for only £23. I was quite satisfied with my purchase. I was stacking up the shirts and deciding what I will not take. I have this problem, like travelling paranoia, where I think I need to take as much as clothes as I possibly can.
But in my head its like a fashion magazine, in reality I wear the same thing everyday. Im too lazy, too cold, too tired, too moody to make an effort to wear anything I put in my suitcase.
I also packed my worst case scenario dress in the suitcase, in case I am late to London for some reason and don’t have enough time to pick up the dress I was going to wear. In between those things, my expensive shoes. I was actually thinking of taking them in the backpack because I am always so scared someone will loose my luggage and those shoes are irreplaceable.
I grabbed Pablo from the corner of the room and put him in his carry case because I was bringing him to my mom. We packed the car and were on our way to the airport.
‘What would I say if I won? What will others say?’’- I was totally unprepared, I have never actually won anything in my life. I flicked through the finalists once more just to see everyone. These guys have been in it for years. I am just like little newb. Surely judges took note of experience, and I am not the one with experience. I started feeling a little bit stressed and nervous.
At the airpot our first flight was delayed, which sucks cause our next flight is just a short time after landing, so I was thinking I might not make it to the blog awards after all. I will probably get there too late.
Thankfully after a bit of stress everything was fine and we were up in the air.
W arrived to London around 6pm. I didn’t even do my hair yet then. Ran in to the hotel and got changed as quickly as possible then ran to the car and to the ceremony.
I didn’t really take any pictures, I guess I was too excited to even think about it, so this post is more like a diary entry than a usual post. I did however, get a photo of me with my ”certificate” of being voted top 3 lifestyle blog in the UK, and forgot to take my Finalist for travel one, but I asked them to send it to me.
I am extremely honoured by this recognition. I have been blogging for 1 year and this is such a huge achievement.
