Johnson & Johnson Best Beauty Blogger 2011 – The Trophy!

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 8 - 2011

A couple of you* asked to see the trophy that I was awarded following my jammy scoop of Best Beauty Blogger title at the recent Johnson & Johnson Beauty Care Journalism Awards.

I’d rather I didn’t look such a scruff in the photo below so please ignore the creases and two-tone hair but a). it was the best of a bad lot and b). Mr. L gave me the “if you want me to take this photo of you, let’s do it now” ultimatum at a time when I looked, well… a bit of a scruff!

I’ve got my trophy displayed in my parent’s front room at the moment because they’re thoroughly loving casually dropping it into conversations with the Pools man/Avon lady/Betterware Catalogue picker-upper.  It’s hideously embarrassing if I happen to be around when all this is going on… but secretly, I’m loving that they’re loving it.  How could I not?

Thank you for your lovely congratulations last week, I really don’t feel very deserving but I’ll gladly take them all the same!

*at least one of you did, honest!  I’m not making it up just so I can show off my award and bring it up AGAIN!  As if I would…
