getting ready with @allabouttheboys and @caroljs who let me crash their room!
I was lucky enough to attend the Mum and Dad Awards better know as The Mads on Friday and had, quite simply the most AMAZING 24 hours. HAW struggles to understand why I blog/tweet and takes the proverbial piss out of me for meeting strangers of the internet (his words, not mine) but the love and support in the room on friday was, quite simply amazing.
Over 100 of the most wonderful bloggers congregated in the soho HQ of talktalk and on arrival we were photographed on the red carpet whilst quaffing copious amount of wine and scoffing lovely, lovely canapes.
Glowstars on the left and me on the right!
My role for the evening was that of live blogger with the gorgeously, funny Vic from Glowstars . I knew we were going to get on like a house on fire when she came back with copious beers and canapes whilst balancing precariously on a pair of fabulous shoes!! Definitely my sort of girl....
Here we are - she looks about 15 years old whilst I look old and squiffy......
Kate Wit Wit Woo and me in a cab enroute...I need a proper picture of her dress!
We had such a great time commenting on everything from who was the best dressed (Kate from WitWitWoo won and my goodness, that girl has va va vooooom in bucketfuls) to who was the most drunk (what goes on tour, stays on tour and all that..sorry!) but of course, we were there to report on the winners. There were over 50,000 (by heck gertrude) nominations and the full list of winners can be found Here - a massive well done and huge congratulations and sloppy kisses and hugs all around to the winners and finalists - you ALL rock!
One of the first blogs I read last year was Bangs and a Bun and the gorgeous Muireanne was on mighty fine form as the hostess with the mostess on the night - she was her usual eloquent, funny self and if you haven't read her blog then get your tush over there NOW and start by looking at some of her raps.....I adore!!
The night was full of love, laughs and hugs and it was truly great to see lots of women being supportive and empowering to each other - it's a very special revolution going on I tell you!!
I went for late night wine with some very special girls (@allforalleyna @clairelouise82 @seasiderclaire @mummyfromtheheart @bobbity666) and then headed home for more wine and late night chats (4am I'll have you know) with my roomy Louise from Bloggomy
It was a TOP night and I can't wait for next year!!
Well done to Sally and Jen and everyone else who made it possible - it was fantabulous!
