The Johnson & Johnson Beauty Care Journalism Awards…

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 28 - 2011

…were held earlier in the week at a swanky ‘do’ in London.

Attended by some of the country’s best journalists and writers, the awards recognise the work that UK beauty journalists do to educate and inform their readers through intelligent articles on skincare and beauty.

So, quite frankly… I have no idea how I managed to bag one.

I was awarded Best Beauty Blogger at the ceremony and will even get a trophy to proudly display next to my computer… or yano, in everyone’s face.  Repeatedly.

The Best Beauty Blogger category was introduced to the award line up for the first time this year and despite my jokes and general awkwardness, I really am very happy, proud and thankful to have been selected as the inaugural winner by the panel of judges.

I’d also like to give a shout-out to runner-up SCforM who writes a great grooming blog you should be following here.

Thanks for the support, banter and patience you guys show me as I bumble my way through this blogging thing, you make it so much fun.  Now I’m off to tell my husband that I shall henceforth answer only to the title of ‘award-winning’ wife.  What?

    Wow, well done you! You so deserve it, this is the best British beauty blog for sure! In fact I might just have to go for the best blog ever, especially when it comes to your writing style, you have me LOL-ing regularly! Your blog is one of a very few I check every day (erm, several times a day) and will continue to do so as long as you do it, which I hope will be a very long time.

    Congratulations! I’ve only discovered your blog recently ( after someone in Germany recommended it to me- We had done a perfume/ goodies swap and you had gotten her lusting after several UK only bits!) but I have been really enjoying reading all of your posts. I am seriously impressed as I have two small daughters and I struggle to look presentable on the school run and get my house in order and you look fab and are an award- winning blogger!

    Congratulations Charlotte! You won because your blog is wonderful. You know what i love the most about it? That you haven’t turned into a makeup snob. I’ve seen it in so many other bloggers and it just makes me feel alienated as someone who can’t really afford Edward Bess but who really loves their Barry M nail varnish. Thank you for keepin’ it real and not getting status anxiety over makeup. I love you for it. Xxx

  61. Congrats – you deserve it. You write from the heart and that’s what keeps people coming back. You don’t have an agenda other than to share your beauty knowledge or naivety with all of us and that is what makes it accessible for all no matter where in the world we are.

    Journalists from magazines and newspapers are censored for saying what they really feel which is why beauty blogs are great for the consumer if nothing else!

    Well done xoxo
