When I first started this blog, I didn’t quite know what I was going to get out of it. I just knew I wanted a space where I could express who I am. I never thought that I would not only get nominated but then also go on to win the bloody award?! I mean that’s just a lil insane!

I’m not reaaaally into showing my emotions (haha!) and I don’t want to seem cringey but I really wanted to just say a huge thank you to every single person who took the time to vote for me, I really can’t explain how much this means to me! To win this award, to know that you guys not only like my content but think that I’m worthy of winning an award is a feeling I don’t think I’ll ever get over. I honestly didn’t think I had a chance in hell at winning this award and I know how cliché that sounds – but that’s honestly how I felt! When they called my name, I was in complete shock that I think I just kinda screamed whilst I tried to control my shaking hands! 

I felt like this year, there were definitely more alternative bloggers being nominated and represented and it felt so good to be one of them! Growing up I always knew I was different to the people around me- I didn’t like the same music, fashion, films etc. and starting my own blog has given me the space to truly represent who I am! I am truly beyond thankful that you lovely people of the internet not only accept what makes me different but embrace it! The support you have given to Midnight and Lace over the past year means everything to me. It makes me more determined to produce better content because I just want to do this for you all, I want to make you proud of what I do here!

I also want to sat a huge congratulations to the coolest girl I know Jess (iamfoxxtailz) for winning Best Fashion Blog AND Blogger of the Year! Honestly, I was so proud and stoked for Jess because she deserved to win this so much. She works so hard to create kick ass content that is beyond cool and so unique and because she is just the most genuine, down to earth funny gal I've ever met! Getting to watch one of your pals win and celebrate that with them is the best feeling, I'm so proud of her!

I’ve been on quite the journey with Midnight and Lace over the past year and to win this award is just mind blowing, I am beyond grateful for your support and love! I couldn’t get to do what I love without you! I want to squeeze every single one of you because your support honestly blows me away- thank you, thank you, thank you from the depths of my dark soul!

I’m a bloody award winning blogger?! That’s so insane!
