On Thursday the 21st May we headed for Dublin to represent Into The West Blogger Network (#ITWBN) at the Irish Beauty Blog Awards 2015. We were delighted to take a stand at the event so we could tell everyone on the East Coast about ITWBN and were looking forward to supporting some of the amazing and talented Bloggers from ITWBN who were nominated for various awards.
The Irish Beauty Blog Awards were set to be a glamorous event with top Beauty Bloggers including Pippa.ie, So Sue Me and The Make Up Fairy all nominated for an award. The Irish Beauty Blog Awards were established to acknowledge the immense effort and commitment that is invested into creating a memorable and insightful blog and Lillie's Bordello was the venue for the Awards Ceremony.
Our favourite part of the night was mingling with all the amazing Bloggers & Brands. It was great to catch up with Philomena Enhance What's Yours, Lorna Fashion Boss, Mei Ling Tong Darling Buds of Mei and Nirina Killer Fashion.
It was also our first time meeting Jess from Chaos Wearing Lipgloss, so great to finally put a face to the blog. Make-up Artist, Blogger and Salon Owner Annette O'Brien was also in the building. This lady is definitely one to watch. The fun loving and gorgeous Jen from Too Dolly Make-Up always puts a smile on our face and it was also great meeting Amanda from The Chatter Box Diaries and Lesley from Bellinis And Blush.
The lovely Elisha from Along Came Pollly was looking stunning as always; another one of the West's finest bloggers. Meeting Sinéad from The Beautiful Truth was also wonderful! The Beautiful Truth is an award winning Irish Beauty Blog, that is honest to a fault and we love it. Sinéad gives us the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
Of course we caught up with one of the finest in the blogging world, Suzanne Jackson from So Sue Me. This lady is unreal! We've been a fans for a few years now and were delighted to see that all her hard work is paying off. Suzanne recently launched her SOSU Gel Colour Polish Collection and already every beauty blogger across the Isle is raving about how amazing they are. Its always a buzz meeting Pippa ... Model & Blogger at Pippa.ie. Pippa was on fire at the Irish Beauty Blog Awards taking home not 1 but 3 awards!
Its always great to meet others from the West when at away events and were delighted to talk all things beauty with Joanne and Karina from Kinvara Skincare. We had a great laugh and us girls will definitely be catching up for a cuppa in Galway very soon.
Everyone seemed to really enjoy the Beauty Blog Awards, we definitely did, but most importantly the awards ceremony raised much needed funds for Breast Cancer Ireland. Congratulations to the event organiser Lisa from TanOrganic, it was a super night and we are looking forward to next year already. #IBBAwards
