How crazy and exciting!!! For those of you who don’t know I recently went to Johannesburg to attend the SA Beauty Blog Awards because I was nominated in three different categories and I won the Best Newcomer Of The Year award, which was so unexpected and incredible!
I’ve put so much time and effort into my little space on the internet, so it’s wonderful to gain some recognition for everything.
Thank you so much to everyone for all your kind words and for congratulating me, it still feels a bit surreal. It’s great to know that people enjoy reading my blog and are interested in my opinions. Here’s a little reaction gif I posted on instagram after arriving home in Cape Town.

It was an honour to win the best Newcomer Of The Year award last night at the #SABeautyBlogAwards ???? Most people don’t know that I created my new website by myself and pulled countless all nighters to get it looking just right. As bloggers, we work really hard on our content. Some people see fancy events and product reviews as stupid but if you’re a blogger you know how much time and effort is put into getting a post looking just right. So I’m really happy that my work is being recognized and it still feels surreal to call myself an ‘award winning blogger’ ?
For winning the Newcomer Of The Year award, I received an incredible Johnson and Johnson hamper to the value of R 5 000! Inside the hamper was a huge Yankee Candle, a gorgeous glass tea pot and glass tea warmer, along with tons and tons of Johnson and Johnson products and so much more. I’ve been loving all of it! Especially the Johnson’s facial wipes and their nourishing cream face wash.
Check out these great video’s below! The first one is Cara Fay‘s vlog from the day we flew to Johanesburg for the event and the second video was taken on the night at the SA Beauty Blog Awards.
