II may not have been there as a finalist but getting to mingle with fantastic bloggers and dress up was not an opportunity to be missed so I was delighted to win a ticket. The Mads took place in a swanky hotel in central London and there were people on call to do our hair and make up before the big event. I was very impressed that the girls from Regis managed to curl my hair, and that they stayed in! This is a first and I am hoping that with the samples they gave me I can recreate the look at homeRead more ⇨
Before I had to run off to catch the last train home (next time I am definitely booking a hotel!), there was just enough time to climb aboard a giant red stag in the hotel lobby with fellow pregnant blogger Katie from Mummy Daddy Me. Surrounded by cushions it was far too inviting and I know for sure we were not the only ones making the most of the photo opportunity!
Congratulations to all the nominees, finalists and winners of this year's event, and thanks to the wonderful orgnaisers! I would love to go back again next year!
The awards were preceded by a delicious three course meal where I got to catch up with one of my favourite bloggers, Kate from Makeshift Mummy. There were some fantastic winners including the brilliant Mamasaurus, and the wonderful Coombe Mill but all the finalists have such fantastic blogs that my google reader is now very full!
The Liberty gown is a gorgeous two layer deep blackberry coloured dress, floor length even with 5 inch heels on (and I am 5 foot 9)! There is a removable sash that helps show off the bump and the cowl neckline hangs beautifully. I absolutely loved wearing it and felt very glamorous!
