Slummy single mummy – fashion blogger extraordinaire

First I was strutting my stuff for Littlewoods and then I went all yummy mummy for Mint Velvet – who’d have thought I’d ever be a fashion blogger? Who could have possibly imagined I would go from this:

Littlewoods clothes review

In just 30 short years. It’s a miracle isn’t it?

As unlikely as the idea of me pretending to be in any way stylish is, this week I found out that I am a finalist for the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging awards, in the ‘style’ category. That’s right family and friends, you read that right. Style.

This is what the style category has to say for itself:

To paraphrase Coco Chanel, a fashion blogger’s site should be two things: classy and fabulous. Bloggers in this category have no problem with either of those criteria. We believe being a parent adds an interesting dimension to fashion and beauty coverage – combining a world view with a catwalk view.

Classy and fabulous eh? That’s definitely me.

Now just because I’m slightly dubious about the authenticity of my fashion blogging credentials, doesn’t mean I don’t want to win. Hell no! If I can’t even bear to let my nine-year-old daughter win at snap I’m hardly going to stand back and let virtual strangers steal my fashion crown am I?

Anyway, my point… My point is, please go and vote for me. It’s very quick and easy, you literally can just tick one box if you like, you don’t even have to fill in your name. What are you waiting for? You pop of to vote, I’ve got the latest edition of Vogue to check out…

    I’ll be voting for you, mainly because I love those heels! Did you get to keep them?

      OMG, I LOVED them – they were so velvety and beautiful. I treid just casually walking around in them, hoping no one could notice and that I could just leave, but unfortunately no :-(

      I did get the fur coat though, which I originally picked up thinking ‘Oh my, who would wear THAT?’ but actually once I had it on…
