The clocks have gone back, there’s a chill in the air. And we are about to go Christmas crazy. That means only one thing! It is November (already?!) Well my little blog baby is now 3 months old! That three months have gone by in a blur that’s for sure. However I cant believe we have only been live 3 months. It feels like so much longer. It is that time of the month to look back over what we have been getting up to on the blog and across social media. It’s time for The October Edit.

The October Edit | Monthly Catch Up

Definitely the most exciting part of October was The Wedding blog Awards. It pretty much over shadowed anything else that happened. The excitement of the build up, the nerves, the event itself and of course the come down (read hangover) following the event. I met some amazing people that I been chatting to online over recent months and I am pretty sure these ladies will become very good friends over time.

As you are probably aware, I didn’t win the award for The Rising Star. However I was so proud to be made a finalist and the award went to the very deserving Laura from Devine Bride.

The evening was fantastic, I even managed to give Gethin Jones a smooch on the cheek. you can see how impressed he was!

Social Media

I’m going to admit it now, we have been pretty rubbish with managing our social media platforms this month.  I’m not going to make excuses but I promise we will be much better this month! I love nothing more than getting social with all you lovely readers so more time must be spent chatting to you! There has been a fair amount of updates though – especially on the day of The Wedding Blog Awards (of course!)
