I honestly never thought I'd be writing this post, but I'm so proud to announce that Tea Party With Alice won Highly Commended for Beauty in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2015! I was so grateful to have ever been shortlisted in this category - something I never expected, but to hear my name being announced on the night was both shocking and overwhelming - it truly means the world.

I, like so many other bloggers, put so much effort into my blog and it feels amazing to have that hard work recognised. I've had an amazing 2015 and this feels like the perfect way to end the year, the best early Christmas present possible.

Most importantly, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to anybody who took the time to vote for me and for everybody who sent me such lovely messages congratulating me - I am so, so happy and there are honestly no words to describe what it means.

Thank you a million times over!
