So if you haven’t guessed already by my excitable social media posts I’ve only gone and been shortlisted as a FINALIST in this years UK Blog Awards! Ahhhhhh!! This is such a MASSIVE achievement for me, both personally and professionally, so I felt this warranted its very own blog post…

Over 70,000 votes were cast across 18 different categories with over 100 individual entries in my travel category alone and I can’t quite believe that I’ve been made the top ten! My little blog barely has any online presence compared to some of my fellow nominees, some of which have over 10,000 Twitter followers alone!!

I never thought my little blog would even be noticed by anyone when I first started writing almost two years ago, and look how far I have come! I am so blessed to have support from such fantastic family and friends as well as my amazing readers! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to each and everyone of you who took the time to vote for my blog during the past few weeks- it means the absolute WORLD! <3


The glitzy awards ceremony in London will be held at the stunning Westminster Park Plaza Hotel -coincidentally I actually reviewed the hotels bar and restaurant last October! I absolutely cannot WAIT to get dressed up and get involved in a fantastic evening of networking and celebrating. I don’t think I have much of a chance of winning compared to some of the other fantastic bloggers in my category, including Faraway Lucy, Eat Sleep Love Travel & Absolutely Lucy, but a girl can dream huh?!

It will be an honour to just attend the ceremony and experience my first ever awards do and I will of course share it all with you every step of the way!

Thank you again, as always, for your continued support – UK Blog Awards I’m coming for you!!

Love Jess x
