I'm overwhelmed, incredulous and so thankful. To anyone and everyone who nominate both my blog and my youtube channel, I thank you. I work hard on my little corner of the internet and its so lovely to receive recognition against countless of other incredible blogs! If you'd like to vote for me, you can vote for my blog 'The Camera's Lying' in the 'Best Established Fashion Blog' category and my youtube channel 'The Camera Lies Beauty' in 'Best Vlog.' If you'd like to vote you can do so here.

Once again, I thank you and want you to know that your continued support means more to me than you'll ever know.

Event: The Grill From Ipanema

A few weeks ago, on an unseasonably hot June evening in London, myself and six or so other bloggers headed up to Covent Garden for an Etail PR event, hosted by Ipanema. The event took place in Cabana's outside seating area where, instead of the usual restaurant set up, Cabana had set up a beach bar, grill and giant sandpit to chill in. There were cocktails, deck chairs and quirky oil drums for bar tables all over the place and you could be forgiven for thinking you were in the Bahamas.
I've already posted about my outfit, here, as the bloggers who attended were all dressed in Quiz clothing, who had kindly offered us each a dress to wear to the event. We felt slightly over dressed for a beach event, especially when I tried to navigate the sand pit in heels! But I always say that lifes and party and we should always dress like it! Thank you to Ipanema, who sent us away with a beach bag and flip flops and to Etail PR for inviting us. If you'd like to check out any of the other girls in the photos, click there names: Megan, Rebecca, Paulina, Hayley, Emily & Becki.

Finally I wanted to say that I have been shortlisted in two categories for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2014. I'm completely astounded and so grateful to each and everyone of you that nominated me! If you'd like to vote for me, you can vote for my blog (The Camera's Lying) under 'Best Established Fashion Blog' and my youtube channel (TheCameraLiesBeauty) under 'Best VLOG.' You can vote here!

Beauty: DIY Makeup Storage

I posted about the cake stand I made for my Grandparents 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary a few months after starting my blog, back in 2011, and here I am (three years later) posting about a similar topic. I made two more DIY cake stands out of vintage china for a DIY video that went up on my channel, TheCameraLiesBeauty. I thought I would share the DIY here too, as its so simple, yet such a lovely, decorative piece, that, in my eyes, is much more interesting than the clear muji storage everyone is into! 
Before I got, please click through to the video and hit subscribe while you are there. I'm posting a video everyday in the month of July and you can see Primark hauls, tutorials on celebs like Kylie Jenner, Advice videos, collaborations and TAGs! Both my youtube channel, TheCameraLiesBeauty and my blog, The Camera's Lying, have been shortlisted in this years Cosmo Blog Awards under the categories of 'Best Established Fashion Blog' and 'Best Vlog.' You can vote here, and thank you!
