Some of you might remember that I told you about being shortlisted for a Cosmopolitan Blog Award in the "Established Fashion Blog" section a little while back. Well yesterday was the big day, with an awards ceremony where the winners were announced. Unfortunately I couldn't make the event, but I managed to find out all the winners through the live twitter feed (#cosmoblogawards) last night. Imagine my shock, and I mean serious shock, shaky hands, a few tears, etc, when I found out that this little old blog actually managed to win my category! Honestly, it's probably a good thing I wasn't there in person, as I would have probably burst into tears/done something stupid in front of everyone there, haha!
Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone who voted for me, I honestly never expected this, so thank you so much for your support! I still can't quite believe it.
You can find the whole list of all winning & highly commended blogs here. (Scroll down to the "Established Fashion Blog" to find me, & yes, they still got my blog name wrong - eek!).
Anyway, until next time,

Firstly, the packaging is lovely & fits in very well with the circus theme of the shop. The description of the shop reads as such:
"We are Callooh and Callay, purveyors of fine acrylic jewellery. Our designs are influenced by our own obsessions from circuses to heraldy, animals to pop culture."
The shop itself is easy to navigate & has all possible info you could want, such as size, details on materials, & varied product images. There are 3 main collections at the moment, Balloonacy, Punch & Judy, & Jewels for Ghouls Halloween Collection, along with a few other pieces such as my cameo brooch, a Labyrinth(!!!) themed necklace, & more! Callooh & Callay also have their own blog, where you can find up to date info & discounts etc, here.

Just a few of my favourite Autumn pieces to hit the shops recently. Of course I own the bird print top, which I think is gorgeous! Outfit post to come soon, I promise! I've just placed an order for the petal collar & the dalmation shoes today, so pics to come! I normally hate animal print, but this dalmation print a la Cruella I actually do love! Of course the rest of the items are on my wishlist, fur trim, velvet & knitwear are all autumn/winter staples for me. I love the fact that pretty peter pan collars are getting much easier to find, I have loved them forever, but they've only really come in over the last year or so. And talk about hard to find in plus sizes. There still aren't that many options out there, which is whyI think detachable collars are probably the way to go, you can add them to virtually anything then.
Anyway, that's enough rambling from me!
