This is not a plea for an award

I drafted a lovely little blog post about how much it would mean to me if you could all vote for me in the Cosmo Blog Awards. As I read it back, I had a cheesy epiphany. No award can really replace the feeling that I get when I get a lovely tweet, or comment from somebody saying that they like my blog or (in the case of some of my more serious posts) that I've inspired them.

OK, I really don't think I'm inspirational in any way but I try to use my little space of the internet to talk about things that are more than just skin-deep. I'm really growing in confidence with my blogging and it has become somewhat of a scrapbook for me. A wonderful, interactive scrapbook. So, I've realised the glam and the glitz of the award doesn't matter. It just doesn't.

What I will say, though, is that I bloody love blogging. I love writing something that I've injected my personality into, and I love taking beautiful pictures and I love chatting to you guys about it. I plan to blog for a very long time to come whether my following grows or shrinks, through my time living abroad and beyond. It's a lot more fun when things grow though, isn't it? Nobody ever said no to making new friends, and that's really what I think I could get out of being shortlisted for an award. So if you enjoy my posts, and you think that I deserve it, then throw a nomination my way for Best New Beauty Blog (I've only been around for 17 months so technically I am still 'new' to this). And if not, you can still be part of our gang because you're on my blog and that makes me happy. ;)

Thank you all so much for reading and your continued support.
You are all magnificent human beings!
