Today I’d like to share with you the experience I had last Friday. I have been invited to the Vuelio Blog Awards 2015 and it was amazing.
The dress code was smart and I did not know what to expect: it was the first time ever to be invited to such event.
Unfortunately I wasn’t dressed smart enough compared to my fellow bloggers… I only had an H&M electric blue dress and black boots (I was coming straight from work and I thought that it was enough…clearly I was wrong).
The Awards were hosted in the Brewery in the City and I was welcomed by a troup of waiters who filled me up with booze. It was a bit awkward for me as I didn’t know anyone there and I was drinking at the corner and watching people (like a weirdo). After maybe 10 minutes a blogger approached me… Vicky Flip Flop Travels, a really nice girl who talked to me about her favourite places and how she made an income from her blog to the point of quitting her full time job. Very fascinating.
Unfortunately at some point our conversation was interrupted by the announcement of the start of dinner, so we had to make our ways to the assigned tables. Never mind.
I shared my table with mainly media people who were really nice. Dinner itself was okay, nothing amazing (but I am not complaining, it’s not about the food) which had ham and a bit of salad for starter and the main was seafood and fish (I don’t think it was fresh).
But the best bit was the awards! Shame that many of the winners weren’t there to collect their award (a bit awkward) but for those who were there it was a real success!
I went back home drunk and happy, and I realised how I should invest more on my blog. It’s an amazing thing to develop and it can really take you somewhere.
