Best European Interiors Blog 2015 is a title I would love to call my own! For those who’ve been following me for a while you may remember that one year ago (where’s the time going??) I was shortlisted for the Amara Interior Blog Award and invited to attend the awards ceremony in London. Unfortunately, I did not win, but I was still thrilled  to be part of it. This year, however, I would love to win the award! Wishful thinking? Maybe… but hey, someone’s gotta win this award, so why not me?

If there is one thing I have learned over the last 18 months of self-employment, you need to put yourself out there, no matter how daunting it may seem sometimes. After all, if people don’t know you exist, how on earth are they going to use your services… Another thing I’ve come to realise is that it is ok to ask for help, which is what I am doing right now!

WILL YOU PLEASE VOTE FOR ME?

The Amara Interior Blog Awards is a prestigious award based in the UK, featuring many different categories. For all non UK bloggers there are the regional categories, such as the Best European Interiors Blog, Best USA Interiors Blog etc. In my category there are nearly 60 bloggers competing, so it’s going to be a tough race…

Will you help me make a dream come true?

Thank you so much in advance for your continuous support!!

Hopeful regards,

Simone xx
