I've entered UK Blog Awards 2017!

Hey everyone,

So today is a special day…voting for UK Blog Awards 2017 is now OPEN!! For those of you who have followed me for a while now, you’ll remember that I was amazed to be SHORTLISTED as a Top 10 Finalist for Best Travel Blog in the 2016 awards. It was totally unexpected and I was blown away by the amount I support I received from my family and friends and of course my readers, as well as everyone else who took the time to vote for me! Being shortlisted as a finalist this year was incredible, but next year I am going to go all out and try to WIN the coveted title of Best UK Travel Blog at the 2017 awards! I need your help to do it though…



Voting is easy peasy and takes just 30 seconds! All you have to do is click here, enter your name and email address, select TRAVEL as the category, and then click VOTE! That’s it, it couldn’t be simpler, and the competition in my category is stronger than ever, so I need all the help I can get if I’m going to have any chance of being shortlisted, let alone winning. If you could pleaseeeee take the time to vote for me I would be eternally grateful and it would mean soooo much to me and my little blog, which is turning 3 next year – I can’t believe it!

Thank you to anyone who may have voted for me so far – I LOVE YOU! Voting closes on 19th December so please cast them as soon as possible! I’ll be Tweeting, Instagramming and Facebooking in between now and then to make sure you’re still voting 😉 nah don’t worry, I won’t bombard you, but I do need as many votes as I can get to be in with a chance of winning!

You know what to do… vote vote vote!

Hey everyone,

I hope your first working day of 2016 has gone well! Mine went super quick (yay) and I’ve been dying to get home and write his blog post as I am SO EXCITED to share some big news with you all!

After deciding some time ago that 2016 was going to be my year I entered the UK Blog Awards (Travel Section) for the first time in the hope that I can add award winning blogger to my increasingly long website description and bio on all my social profiles.. doesn’t that sound AMAZING?! A girl can dream huh!

In all seriousness, I’m not expecting to win anything or even be shortlisted but I’ll be pray hoping that the exposure will boost my site and that it’ll give me a great opportunity to interact with even more fellow bloggers!

So, why am I writing about this now I hear you ask? Well, today marks the first day of VOTING for this fantastic award and I need YOUR help to get some votes for my little blog!! Any votes at all would be hugely gratefully received and voting will be running between now and 25th January at 9pm.


Voting couldn’t be simpler and takes literally just a few seconds! What’s more, you can vote for my blog multiple times (yay) off multiple devices (yay again) but only one vote per device per day is permitted. So you could vote each day on your mobile, tablet AND laptop and treat me to lots of lovely votes! Please click here to cast your vote! I’ve also sneak cleverly dotted various VOTE NOW buttons throughout this post so it’s eyecatchingly obvious that you can vote vote vote!

There’s stiff competition this year for the awards, and I’m up against 100 odd other other talented bloggers in the Travel Section, including Jess from The Travelista, Sophie from Sophie’s Suitcase, Victoria from The Girl on the Move, Emma from Paper Planes and Caramel Waffles and Vicky from Eat Sleep Love Travel. I admire each of these travel bloggers hugely and am delighted to be in the same category as them. Best of luck to all of you guys too! <3



Voting is now open so if you could find it somewhere in your heart to give me a little vote between now and 25th January I will be eternally grateful and it would mean the absolute world to me!

Don’t forget you can vote MORE THAN ONCE and I’ll be posting links and promoting this heavily on social media throughout January! Thank you in advance, you lovely lovely people!

Love Jess x
