Brilliance In Blogging Awards

Brilliance In Blogging Awards. I am nominated in the style category with 16 other amazing blogs. Brit Mums is a community with more than 6,000 parent bloggers, mums and dads too. They received hundreds of nominations for the awards and I am proud to have made it this far. I just need your help to vote for me? To make it to the next stage? Where 4 bloggers with the most votes with go through and 2 more are picked by Brit Mums in each category.

Eek, it would be so exciting.

Claire Justine About Me:

So who Am I? I am a 41-year-old mum of 4, who love to blog about family life and my own person style, mostly trough pictures, as I love taking them. Also, I love high heels but you will mostly find me rushing on school runs in trainer’s (on my way out for a run) flats and converse.

I do also, have an unhealthy amount of high heels, though, which I am proud of! Just need to wear them more!! Maybe getting though to the next stage would be a good chance? I also love to up cycled my shoes, clothing and anything in the home that is lying around gets a coating of modge podge and glitter.

I use too many smiley faces!! :):):) So much fun though!

When I Started My Blog:

I started my blog over 3 years ago now. Wow, where does time go? I use to have time to read the fashion pages in an on line newspaper where I read a story about the editor trying a fashion challenge 6 items or less. (Now my time is spent blogging).

This was an American challenge where you had to only wear 6 items of clothing in a month, mix and match them to make lots of different outfits. I was hooked. After trying the challenge I met a lovely blogger and was inspired to start a blog. I was amazed by the blogging world until this I had never heard of a blog!!

Just for a laugh, this is the 2nd, 6 items or less challenge I did. How different have I changed over 3 years? I like to think I have grown in style since starting my blog? Still can not pose properly!! I know this is one thing I need to work at…

Brilliance In Blogging Awards:

I have so many ideas left to share, I need a computer chip in my brain to store all my ideas. I share all my styles, even running.. Me and my family ( well the oldest refused to join us ) aren’t we a stylish lot!?! If you have a few minutes to vote you will make me very happy :):):)

I leave you with a quote my granddad used in life, it is now my fashion quote-

‘I may not always be right but I am never wrong!?!’

Chocolate, Orange & Watercress Brownies with Chocolate Ganache Topping:

Firstly, Chocolate, Orange & Watercress Brownies with Chocolate Ganache Topping. So chocolate, orange and watercress may not seem the most obvious combination but by golly, it works! The sharp pepper of the watercress contrasts deliciously with the citrus flavours and bitterness of the chocolate to make a truly mouth-watering treat. Chocolate, Orange & Watercress Brownies. So yummy.
