On November 24th I was invited to attend The Vuelio Blog Awards, a glittering evening to recognise and celebrate the success and achievements of the blogging community. Whilst this blog will never be recognised for an award to be invited alone was a compliment for me, I had to keep pinching myself that I had been invited to a black tie event to celebrate some of the finest bloggers in the UK.
Due to travel issues I had arrived to the event late missing the sparkling reception and official photos, but my guest and I had just enough time to get a drink and find our allocated table before the entertainment began. To kick off the evening we were treated to a performance by fire breathers…..if that’s the right name?!…..incredibly talented group who performed routines with flame tricks.
After an inspiring speech that was equally met with laughter and silence we were moved onto the 3 course meal, which was incredible, 3 courses of taste bud heaven, I would go into detail of each course but I genuinely have no idea what the dishes are called except my absolute fave, cheesecake for dessert!
I was very fortunate to have been allowed to take a plus one with me and we both had an incredible time, despite my guests shoes being a tad too small and shredded their feet! Poor thing had to opt for the penguin walk! This also meant we couldn’t stay for the after party dancing! We were both tired and wanted to get home to the warmth of bed!
The Awards presentation itself was hosted by comedian Ellie Taylor who was delightful and hilarious, I found due to the epic amount of categories the presentation was very rushed, it was over in a blink!
