Competition Win - Fabulous Magazine High Street Fashion Awards 2012

I was really lucky to win a trip to the Fabulous Magazine High Street Fashion Awards 2012 in London Leicester Square a few weeks ago. I decided to take my sister Hannah along as she is studying Fashion Photography at University and thought it would be a good opportunity to see what the event was like and maybe even meet a few celebrities!

We caught the train to London in the afternoon and went straight to Leicester Square to see where the venue was. It was being held in an amazing club called DSTRKT which we later found out boasts Lewis Hamilton, Rita Ora and Rhianna as previous guests!

When we arrived we were offered free champagne and canapes, little did we know that all the drinks were free! So we grabbed some cocktails! They tasted really good!

The event was sponsored by Rimmel cosmetics and there were five make over stands where there were Rimmel ladies on hand to do you make up or nails. I chose to have my nails painted and had a lovely plum metallic colour. I'm definitely going to have to try and find it in the shops!

We were already having a great time but then what made it even better was that we found out that Keith Lemon was going to be hosting the awards! I love watching him on Celebrity Juice! He was just as funny and crude in real life as he is on the TV!

The awards were all given out (you can see a list of all the results here) and then it was the afterparty! DJ Neev from Kiss FM was on the decks and her set was really good!

While we were on the dancefloor we bumped into several celebs! My sister was so excited to meet Lydia from TOWIE and we also saw Danielle Lloyd! Silver olympic medallist Gemma Gibbons was there too and Tom Gearing from The Apprentice

There was also a vintage photobooth set up by The Photo Emporium where we had some photos taken with props! I chose a moustache and bowler hat and Hannah had a frame and giant red lips! Apparently they will be posting the photos online soon, I'll post them here when they're up!

When we left we were also given an amazing goody bag full of lovely things, including Rimmel make up and other skincare goodies and yummy treats! I'll be doing another post on the contents of my goody bag so look out for that!

We had an amazing time and its definitely been the best competition win yet!

Me and my sister Hannah!

Free drinks...yes please!
