It’s almost at an end….

***** only a few days left to vote *****

As many of you know I was up for an award at the British Plus Size Awards last year, which sadly were cancelled at the last minute.

In the aftermath of the fiasco, the lovely Leah of LeahXL and her event brand StyleXL announced that she would put on an award ceremony to recognise the hard work and amazing plus size people who deserved a ceremony, and an accolade.

Style with a Little Extra

And so the nominations were opened. All you had to do was fill in a form nominating your choices inΒ the categories she had chosen.

To be honest I didn’t even ask people to nominate me. I was left feeling so downhearted after the BPSA that I didn’t have the energy or enthusiasm to put myself into the ring again. Whilst I had no doubt that the StyleXL event would definitely happen, I didn’t want to set myself up for another disappointment.

So, you can imagine my surprise when I was sent an email on Monday 9th January advising me that I had been nominated for not one, but two awards! Best Plus Size Newcomer and Most Inspiring Blogger.

Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather. I may have shed a few tears at the news. I literally was blown away, because I had no idea who would nominate me for such prestigious categories.

Of course, I am up against some massively difficult competition. Again I am competing against some wonderful ladies who I love. I am also up against some idols that I have followed over the past few years, and that is mind blowing too.

So, here I go again. Asking for all my friends and followers to get behind me and vote for me in the inaugural StyleXL awards. I know everyone is a worthy winner, and deserving of your votes, but I would be totally honoured to get up there on the stage and collect an award for my little blog.

All you need to do is go to the StyleXL awards website here and choose your favourites in each category. As I mentioned I am up for

Thank you all for your continued support, and watch this space for a chance to win tickets to the award ceremony.
