OMY Blog Awards 2013, Best Interpretation Blog - A huge Thank you!

2:17 PM claire 0 Comments

Attended the OMY Blog Awards 2013 last week, and the theme was 1960's fever! As I don't have any vintage clothes in my wardrobe, I rummaged through my mum's wardrobe to find something to wear. That morning, I also spent a while googling 1960's fashion, using looks from the American series, Madmen as inspiration for my choice of clothes! Finally, to get the correct hairstyle, I YouTubed bee hive hairstyles and tried to imitate them without back-combing my hair. Which was essentially the toughest bit.

Then came Murphy's Law, when I couldn't get a cab for 20 minutes! Had to call one in the end, and managed to catch a breather.

Peal necklaces: Mum's, Pink vintage dress: Mum's, Earrings: Own, Red ribbon: Own.

By the time I reached, Shanghai Dolly was packed. It was my first time there and it was much bigger than expected! However, I arrived in the nick of time because the emcee was just kicking things off :)

In the meantime, managed to chat with my friends and grab photos!










I took a ton more pictures but this entry would be too long if I pasted all of them!! So you can view the pictures on my page if you wish!

Anyway, the day of the Blog Awards coincided with Colin's birthday, and Mint planned a surprise for him! 

While Colin was on stage strutting his stuff for Best Dressed Award, Yingzi and I were putting candles on his cake and removing the plastic sheet surrounding the cake!

However, he came down the stage too fast for us to light the candles!! So everyone formed distraction tactic #1, take pictures.

Mint brought Colin to a corner and the two of them posed! Super good tactic because Colin didn't suspect a thing!

 When suddenly, everyone started singing 'Happy Birthday' to Colin and he was so happy! (notice how the edges of the cake are a little out of shape? That was because we had trouble removing the plastic sheet hahaha)

 Successful! The chocolate cake was really yummmmyyyyy!!

Then came to the category I was nominated for, the Levi's 501 Best Interpretation Blog! *drumrolll*
Was SUPER MEGA surprised when I heard my name!! Went up the stage in a daze to collect my award. Thank you guys for voting and for liking my posts!! :D 

Happy that I look tall here :X, Credits to OMY

 They called us up on stage to take photos with the winners with the other categories and the VIPs, so here's a combined shot taken by OMY! 

 Still can't entirely believe it 

 This was my first time participating in the OMY Blog Awards 2013 and it's been one great experience! From learning about Levi's heritage and culture, to testing my writing boundaries, to juggling available time and meeting deadlines, it was all worth it!

Which brings me to one of the things I love the most about blogging, meeting new people! Here's The Ninja Girls who stood out in their figure hugging sequinned dresses and afro wigs, who were nominated for best dressed and also won Best V-log award!

Thanks again everyone for reading this blog, for voting for me, and for believing in me. 
Blogging brings me happiness and this award has given me strength!!
Even a simple click "LIKE" on my Facebook page, a retweet or reply to my tweets, comments left on my blog or instagram, always cheers me on. THANK YOU for always being here for me!!

God bless and have a great week all!! XOXO
