Brilliance In Blogging Awards 2014…

If you read my blog, you may have noticed by now?

 I am on the short list of bloggers for the Brilliance In Blogging Awards 2014….

I am 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…

About me:

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.

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 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!! :):):)

When I stated 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…

So many ideas so little time:

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-
