Amara Interior Blog Awards

Hello you lovely lot!

lifestyle and interiors blog

How are you? It feels like a while since we last chatted but it’s only been a week since my last post!

I have been to Brussels in-between though so that’s probably why.

I’ve a little favour to ask of you today. It involves you showing your support for me and this blog by voting for me in the Amara Interior Blog awards.

This will be the third year I’ll have been nominated and I hopeful that it will be third time lucky, three times a charm etc. Three is actually my lucky number too!

In the first year back in 2015 I ended up being Highly Commended AKA came in second place which I was over the moon about. Read about it here.

Then in 2016 Amara tweaked the categories. Despite me being nominated, I didn’t feel my category was a good fit so didn’t pursue votes.

Now the 2017 edition is here and Amara have tweaked the blog categories again, but this time in my favour. I’m in Best Interior Lifestyle Blog which suits this space down to the ground. I’m up against many more bloggers this time, a few of whom are my friends (which is both weird and nice) and a few of the blogs are so big that it feels like someone small like me doesn’t stand a chance…

BUT I’d be thrilled to get down to the final five. I can only do that with your help.

So if you do like this blog; if I make you laugh, brighten up your day, inspire your next project, encourage you to be yourself and do things your way then please vote for me!

To vote you just need to go here and fill in your name and email (and whether you want Amara updates) and that is it.

It’ll take you less than five minutes and I’d be so grateful!

    Well done for getting nominated so many years on the trot! I have popped you a vote and have my fingers crossed for you. I have to say that your new photos are lovely, but I am coveting your mug!

    • August 9, 2017 / 7:49 pm

      Aw thanks- my mug is from Dunelm. I think its Denby!

        Thank you, I did wonder whether it might be Denby – they have that lovely comforting shape to them (if that’s even a way to describe them!)
