West Egg did however pick up the Best Interiors Blog Award which, again, I didn't even know we had been nominated for. It was amazing! Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us and supported West Egg. It is greatly appreciated and a real motivation boost to keep moving the business forward and progressing on every front. Twitter played a massive part in the support we received, especially from fellow design bloggers like the amazing Stacey Sheppard (twitter handle: @StaceyJSheppard) who blogs over at The Design Sheppard. Stacey tweeted about us every day for a week before the voting cut off - way above and beyond what anyone could have expected. It's so lovely and heart-warming to be part of this interiors community that is so supportive and helpful to each other. I love it.
To think this blog has it's own award makes me so proud of West Egg and myself for everything we've managed to do over the last 2 years. So many amazing opportunities and some of the most fun projects I've worked on have come about because of this blog and I think that is a really positive, inspiring and amazing thing.

Lucinda and I were in the car when I found out via Twitter - cue lots of screaming. We celebrated later on with prosecco and a lovely Mediterranean vegetable lasagne recipe from Mary Berry's cookbook. It was perfect and I was so happy to be able to celebrate it with the person who inspires me so greatly. We're working on some new designs for A/W 2013 and I can't wait to share them with you all. Thank you again to everyone for your support of our business.
