Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2012...

Soooo we are breaking 3BM tradition and postponing 'This Week The Mice have mostly been...' until tomorrow - sad I know but we would only do it for something very special....the Cosmo Bloggers Awards of course!

Firstly how ridiculously amazing to be nominated in the 'Best Lifestyle Blog' Category, all three of us were extremely proud to be invited let alone make the final nominations! Secondly we love a good party so this only heightened the Mice excitement when the save the date dropped into our inbox! As you all know we started 3BM back in February and have been blogging daily ever since! Between the crazy work hours, mice holidays and busy personal schedules I think we have only missed a couple of days blogs - pretty good far! 

Unfortunately HK mouse was on holiday so couldn't attend but us London mice were there with bells on! We scurried about at work secretly refreshing our makeup at our desks, wriggling out of our day old skinny jeans and at 5:30pm on the dot skipped out to meet one another!

SO.....we were up against some pretty stiff competition BUT we won highly commended runners up!!!!! We could not believe it when our name was read out and our Mice pictures came up on the screens - so much so we actually had a mini sister spat! I thought runners up just smiled and lapped up the applause, however Middle Mouse was going up to the stage...!! Turns out she was right...we collected our certificate, prize and had photos...argggg AMAZING, we literally couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces!!! Proof for you all....

Moments after and VERY excited but sad Biggie wasn't there to celebrate!

We went home with.....

The goody bag was literally bursting at the seams, so much so one of the handles broke on my shoulder! It was like Christmas when we got home squealing as we unearthed Elemis goodies, St Tropez tan, Urban Decay make up, Next clutch bag, Palmers cocoa butter oil, limited edition Jean Paul Gaultier Coca Cola bottle and the list goes on!!

After all the excitement of the evening we decided to go for a final celebratory glass of Champagne at Charlotte Street Hotel. The waitress asked us what we were celebrating after witnessing constant peering at our certificate, facebooking, tweeting and excitedly talking non-stop, and then sent over a congratulatory cupcake which just topped the evening off - as Mary Poppins would say...practically perfect in every way - just missing our big sissy!

What a night, we had so much fun and owe Cosmo a HUGE thank you and of course want to say a MASSIVE thank you to all of our blog readers and everyone who voted for us!!!! We are so very proud and still cannot believe it, totally and utterly chuffed! What a great way to end the week and kick off two days of glorious free time...have a fabulous weekend our fav blog friends...
