Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your loving votes brought me up in front in the competition for the BAKE awards. The 2015 Awards of the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) for Best Fashion/Beauty/Hair/Style Blog, and Kenyan Blog of The Year are both ours … Can you believe it ?
Yaaay! And as long as you stay with me and continue to give me your invigorating and inspiring comments and feedback, you will watch it grow further and further, to give you the very best I can.
We are like a big family – and a rapidly growing family at this stage – so let me be perfectly honest with you. I did not see this coming, because as much as I value my blogging activities, I knew that we were up against strong competition from my fellow fashion bloggers.
Sharon Mundia, www.thisisess.com who won the award last year. I thank her for being so kind and gracious on Saturday evening. She came looking for me, hugged me and wished me well.
Anita of www.stylesketches.com who sat next to me and cheered me on selflessly all night.
Joy of www.ourstylekenya.com This girl is a rare gem, I have known her for a while and adore adore her style. She is so lovely in person and It shines through her blog and on social media.
MsKibati www.mskibati.com I met her for the first time last Saturday night and she is such a beautiful and bubbly lady, and she had on the prettiest outfit.
The award gala on Saturday night was, as you can imagine, an awesome experience full of tension at first and then the joy of winning my two treasured awards. This is a night I shall never forget. These awards took me by surprise! I must be doing something right! and I know in my heart that I must continue to stay on this track and not to cut any corners when it comes to being the best I can be. Which is what you who come to my blog every day deserve. Your support has given me the strength and determination to move on with my blogging activities with even more commitment to give you the best I can.
