Last week I went to London to the Amara Interior Blog Awards. My blog was shortlisted for Best Interior Lifestyle Blog in the International category!
We decided to go with the four of us (me, my husband and our two sons) and have a couple of days together in London with the family. I will tell you all about it in another blog!
The ceremony was held in One Marelybone, a former church now one of the leading unique venues of London. The evening was amazing, I felt overwhelmed by it all. The beautiful interior, the food and drinks, my blog in the Award Guide, is this real?
And the winner is?
The ceremony was led by Michelle Ongundehin, she is the former editor-in-chief of British ELLE-Decoration. Finally my category was announced. My blog was on the big board together with A house full of Sunshine, House of Hawks, MarilenStyles and Peony & Page, and the winner is? House of Hawks! I have to say I was a little disappointed but also relieved, I didn’t know I could be so nervous! Congratulations House of Hawks! Unfortunately she wasn’t at the awards because she lives in Dubai.
Gin cocktails & canapés
After the ceremony we were having gin cocktails and we enjoyed the rest of the evening. I met Francesca from Fall for DIY, that was amazing as I have followed her blog for years. I also met blogger Hester, she is actually Dutch like me but lives in England, her blog is Hester Handmade Home. The Italian blogger Mariana from Interior Notes and her friend Giulia and Claire from Pillar Box Blue who won Best Craft Blog.
Time went by quickly and before we knew it the evening was over and we left with a big goodie bag. Can’t wait to try everything!
