Life, Sass and Naughty D’acampo…

I’m plate spinning and doing it sassy! Lots going on and yeah it can feel shit when you’re exhausted, but i’m lucky…and i’m happy because dolls…I got this ‘thang’ down now. One day…plate spinning won’t be as difficult ๐Ÿ™‚ and when that day comes, I’m gonna kick off my sassy red heels, delicately pour myself a glamourous Aqua Riva Tequila (the purest tequila in the pure that Coco Rocos actually TOLD ME whilst perched at a bar… and she created it, that it is the only tequila in the world that will not give you a hangover, because of it’s purity.The word ‘pure’ gives me a rash because it reminds me of virgins and GOD…yet, luckily when you shove Tequila on the end of it, it sort of becomes sexy. THANK FUCK.)

But yeah…I’m kicking off kitten heels and drinking pure TEQUILA and all that shit whilst I hold up my ‘Success Trophy’ and Google a Wunna Headline that reads that i’m worth ZILLIONS. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I’ve been working hard…so hard that I passed out without realizing last night, in my full face, cuddling Baby Junior, as he clutched a boob after a burger. I need a Wunna office…a pink one with chandeliers…therefore I won’t have to dart across lands continuously…be a mother, a starlet, a worker and a champion all at once. I can sexily beckon people into my world and slide them a Prosecco as we talk creatively. I’ve noticed that i’m SUPER GREAT at creatively coming up with ways to market brands for other people…yet when it comes to me…I need someone to take that FABULOUS shit over.

I have THE BEST chick friends and the reason why I do is because the other day…well i knew already…but the other day I realized how ‘there for each other’ we are. We literally tell each other everything, EVERY DAY…300 days of the year…and let’s say, there was a moment the other day, where I asked for help because I needed them more than ever..and just like the Sassy Army of glamourousity that they are…and we’re all so open with each other…you should be jealous of my chick army…with a snap of their fingers, ย a natter and a wink…it was sorted….I’d tell you what it was…but i’d get into trouble… so there. ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVE YOU GIRLS! They’re on my journey to ‘stardom’ with me, as weirdly it’s kinda only happened since they’ve come into my life…so they’ve watched everything develop, unfold and occur….right before their very eyes…and even though we all have very different lives and priorities…these girls have become my best friends.

YOU NEED AN ARMY LIKE THAT! One day, I’ll rope them all into working for me….We’ll wear heels and drink cocktails, Mel will scowl at people and Rachel with organise things in her headset.

(Our last conversation was about the cup size of our bra’s. Poor Webbo ..the guy in the office…had to sit through it and what Fairytale do a ‘I’m going to Monte Carlo‘ fashion show. She also said that she was going to have a sex toy party in her house and Mel switched it to a ‘candle party’ because she has too many toys. Lol)

‘Wow, this is role reversals…Fairytale is strutting about in red heels in her new house and wants a sex toy party and saucy Mel wants to buy candles…’

(The world must obviously be ending…grab yourself a life boat…it’s some kind of weird freaky life switch…. AND THERE’S NO GIN… Maybe i’ll switch with some goody shoed, quiet………..EWWWWWWWWW DULL….I can’t even type it.)

Right, incase you all didn’t know, I am a huge fan of the Gino DAcampo restuarant chain. I wine and dine and chill there a lot. I went to the one in Leeds when it first opened, I loved it SO much that I wrote a blog about it…that blog was read by EVERYONE…to the point where it got sent around the staff the Head offices…you get the picture…everyone everywhere…(and I found it really funny, as it was sweary, cheeky and fun. It was authentic…it was very ME.) Long story short, I now have a Black Card for the chain and I’m a giant glamourous cheerleader for the brand… Simples. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tuesday….at Sheffield City Hall, I went to be part of Gino’s Live Show. I KNOW!!! As if!! I actally got lost on the way there and his perfect gentleman named Paul, who runs a record label, in his banana coloured shoes found me looking bewilidered and with a ..

‘Are you lost?’


‘I’m going passed that way, I’ll walk you there…’

Awww! How sweet! In that moment I was in love with Paul and his banana shoes. Kindness is sexy. He walked me all the way to the entrance…

‘I don’t know where the Stage Door is, but that’s the main entrance…What’s you blog?’

‘…Thank you so much. You’re my hero.’

And off he tinkered to do his own version of life! WHAT A LOVELY GUY! I need to bump into him again.

Anyway…I got to Gino…after winding through football hooligans and lines of people waiting outside City Hall to get a peek of the Italian Stallion. I was at and doing GINO LIVE.

If you didn’t know he’s currently on tour…and well…what a better way to promote a restaurant right, ๐Ÿ˜‰ as he opens one shortly in every single place that hes touring! I love it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

BUT WHAT A NIGHT! IT WAS SURREAL. The night was so great that I haven’t even absorbed it all in order to deliver it to you effectively! So without telling you everything…I’ll tell you bits. The rest will probably come out in other blogs, as I remember, as it is almost as if it wasn’t even real. As if i did Gino Live!

THAT GUY IS A STAR and I find him really inspirational. (The ‘Big Dude’ up above keeps plonking really inspirational people in my path right now..I have no clue why, but they’re circling me. Lol)

Anyway, I’m dead lucky, so before all the show started at 8pm I was with him all ‘behind the scenes’ backstage. We were on a stage and as I stepped forward to greet him with a…

‘It’s so lovely to meet you…’

He paused, looked at me with a warm serenity…and with smile and with gentle yet very direct eye contact, which means he’s pretty confident, shook my hand like he had known me for 100 years, there was sort of a ‘Daddy Vibe’ to him./a family Italiam warmth…and with a cuddle and pose for pictures ย he said..

‘No…it’s really great to meet YOU…’

So, the show itself was wild and fun, tongue in cheek, filled to the brim with happy faces, there was madness, life, rudeness, comedy, laughter, love and an entire theatre packed to the brim with an energy that you couldn’t even buy. It was filled with SOUL. The place was wild yet so intimate.He created a bubble, an intimacy, that drew you into him like you were his best friend and not a fan, sat in a theatre. I watched everyone’s face, as I scanned the room. He even let any member of audience ask him any question throughout the whole show.

He’s a cheeky, naughty, sassy, sexy, tell it how it is, sweary, fun loving Italian show man. WHAT COULD BE BETTER. But he’s so down to earth and warm, get’s away with murder…I mean fuck, he fake snogged a granny, told one guy he was shit because he was ginger and would never get laid, said he’d eaten a ‘lot of fish’ in his time’ and laughed about it all the way…He pretend kissed girls because he ‘could,’ smashed open pasta on people’s bottoms, drank wine called ‘CUNTO’ and sang songs about how how much he loved his Mother. Lol.

Image may contain: 1 person, standing

It was the most witty and entertaining time ever…Yet with all this…I told you there was a warmth, an appreciation for the people that showed up to watch his show, he was GENUINELY grateful, he told me…and with soul in his heart and a twinkle in his eyes…he gushed about how much he loved his wife…

‘I’ve been married to her for fifteen years now…She’s amazing. I couldn’t be with another woman, because no other woman would marry someone like me. She’s the most patient and loving woman in the world…We understand my role and she understands her role in our relationship…and that’s why it works…I love her.. If I was her i would ditched me 20 years ago.’

Swoon! I want a dude to say that about ME! Even if they don’t mean it. Say it, to me NOW! Say it! Say it!

Anyway, I’m in a rush because i’ve got to head to work…and i’m sat in my bra and no pants writing this on my bed…and i have Ruby to get sorted for school…

You should be inspired by Gino because he’s a guy that hasn’t had it easy, yet fucked that with a ‘Yeeehaa’ and made something of himself. He’s worth millions now, after being a 21 year old waiter who went around breaking into people’s houses. It changed his life…because he pulled himself together DID IT the right way! I love that! Everyone needs a story.

But he’s some Gino Trivia, that I found out before the show…

His real middle name is actually ‘SHEFFIELD.’ His favourite number is 71. His favourite place in the world is Sardinia. The most famous person he has ever met is Luciano Pavarotti.. If he wasn’t a chef, he’d be a Dentist. The thought of being an accountant bores him…He doesn’t support any football team…he supports his wife and kids…He doesn’t love the French. He’s outspoken. He’s lovable.

He is someone that looks as though he has a lot more to achieve. He ambitious…he’s going for it…and even though he’s already on top of his game…he’s got so much more that he wants to trophy! He is the most authentic personal brand that I have ever met. No one is like this guy and he keeps it real…He’s got his niche DOWN, yet certainly knows what he’s doing. But he’ll go for it and that is what LIFE IS ABOUT. What makes him a great personal brand because he has LIVED. (Like Moi.) You can’t fuck with the bastards that have lived, as we can do personal branding like superstars. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re smeared in raw love, openess, charm and swinery.

Shit, i’ve got to dash…Tell you more about it later.

If you haven’t seen the show…You MUST! There’s still some tour dates left!

If you have a Gino’s near you…GET YOURSELF A PROSECCO THERE. It’s my favourite place in Leeds.









Leeds Lifestyle Awards: Part Deux


Image result for leeds lifestyle awards 2016ย ย Image result for leeds lifestyle awards 2016

So, the Awards began and straight away ‘Bam’ everything turned glitzy, live and ‘behind the scenes’ serious, we could see all that was going on within the main room, yet also watch what the viewers could see on the Made in Leeds LIVE broadcast!

I was sat next to The ‘House of Solo’ Magazine creator, another blogger ‘Kellie Dawson’ who had green hair and had brought a friend named ‘Lucy.’ Refreshing, funny and gobby. I loved her. And she fancied the ‘Barber’ guys who were nominated for an award…We stalked to see which table they were sat at for her…and luckily enough they were sat at the The Maven & La Bottega Milanese owner’s table…which made peeking easy. I also had Ruth Whiteley, who was on The Apprentice at my table, with her stunning blond bestie and they have a top secret, skin care product coming out shortly, that i can’t wait to try out.

Announcements we’re being made, drinks were going down a treat, giggles, selfies, presenting and winners were being spotlighted! It was a super *buzzy* feeling, as everything got really cheery and applaudy and celebs handed out awards to the best business owners that our city of Leeds had to offer. Achievement makes you feel good and it’s also highly contagious.

The awesome thing about award ceremonies is that you can ‘swan’ about. So on TV it always looks as though everyone is sat politely nodding and gracefully wine sipping, yet really everyone is ‘in and out’ downing cocktails, having a laugh, chatting to others, smoozing with eye candy, getting to know the people around them and as the crew and production team, in this case the Made in Leeds folk, are rushing around with clipboards, cameras and schedules making sure that all the right people are in all the right places, that filming is going correctly and that the show is nothing short of amazing..and they were good at it! They made me feel really welcome.

After the first award (and a bunch of selfie taking and texting…I messaged ‘Eton Mess’ and was asked about him loads) i dashed outside for a bit of ‘rec carpet’ air. Bumped into the owners of The Mustard Pot, who were hoping to win ‘Best Pub’ and chatted with a guy, who is a new presenter for Made in Leeds. I forgot to ask him his name, but he was quite Russell Brand esque, and had what he referred to as a ‘matching mermaid’ shirt on.

‘What’s that you’ve got? A Vaper?’

‘Yeah, I’m not smoking?’

‘Are you drinking?’

‘No, i’m doing that Sober October thing…nice and boring, then i’m going home to my wife. But hey we have matching mermaid outfits. You want some?’ *Pushes vape towards me*

(By now, i was already pissing myself because his voice was ace and he was unconventional and witty.)

‘What flavour is it?’


‘That is SO camp, hahaha, i love it!’

‘CAMP! I’TS PUNCH. What? Just because i didn’t say Carlsberg Flavour…and anyway what is it that you do again…?’

Great guy. I wish i knew his name? We rushed back inside to go back on air for the next award, from the chandlier draped, red carpet, under the Leeds night stars, to the main room where we were immediately plunged back into a dark, magical and exciting, buzz of affairs.

News presenter Mark Levine was on stage with my good friend ex pro sportsman Alex Simmons and i started downing wine, as adventure had got the better of me, i love a good old knees up of me and…we love it when that happens! I’m fun loving my nature, so i’m literally the BEST human to have at any event. ๐Ÿ™‚ In LA i’d get invited to EVERYTHING, simply so the next morning they could hear my take of the whole ‘doo daa.’ People kept giving me wine, running over to take selfies with me and filming me drink things fast for kicks. It was a blast! Hahaha. I did notice lots of sexual tension in the room. Everyone in Leeds is a fittie. There were tons of naughty sideway glances from table to table…and that’s what turns an event from ‘yeah good’ to DELICIOUS! In Yorkshire, we don’t play! ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone goes for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, AWARD WINNERS EVERYWHERE, COMING FAST AND PLENTY and the crowd was young, fun, on the booze and alive. ย It was fabulous, as surely nothing is better than feeling super nervous, drinking loads and then suddenly in a mental slow motion haze, hearing your business being called out as a WINNER and going up to collect your trophy from a glitzy celeb, in a euphoric state of ‘live broadcast’ yeehaa, as everyone cheers and claps at how awesome you are! Lol.That’s a much better Wednesday night in Yorkshire, than being sat at home, in ya pants, trumping to background telly noise, with a cuppa tea.

Sexy Nino smashed it and The Maven won BEST COCKTAIL BAR! La Bottega Milanese smashed it and WON BEST COFFEE SHOP…I saw them after THE WINNING and ran up to them madly for hugs, kisses, pictures and selfies with their trophies! Love those boys! There’s a cool swiggedy edge about them.And the ever so glammy ‘Apprentice’ Ruth Whiteley’ had handed out one of their awards.

Jack Schneider (owner of Accent Clothing) smashed it and won BEST INDEPENDENT RETAILER. There’s a styley ‘posh boy’ vibe to Jack…and i got to chat to him later on the dance floor, for hugs and well dones!ย 

Everything was great, the whole place was alive and the ‘live broadcast’ and awards had come to an end, cameras went down, the buzz kept going and we did what we in Leeds do best and that is drink shit loads of cocktails, flirt and party with each other!! *Yeeah baby.*

ALL of us, the winners, the celebs, the crew, the everyone, chinned up, let loose, let the DJ hit up some tunes and we turned The Royal Armouries into a club! ๐Ÿ™‚

Being a lifestyle blogger, i’ll have a good time, my niche is good times, cocktails, hotel rooms, dates, fabulousity and just life itself, but i will SCAN an entire room for blog fodder…ALWAYS. I’ll usually know exactly who i’m meeting, why i’m meeting and have a good old chitter with a drink and a bum wiggle. Yet everyone in that room, even though pissed was like minded, they’re all successful people, who have things they pretty much need or want to promote and what better way to do it, then in a fun, social, ‘non formal’ cocktaily, ‘good time’ kinda way. I met some really great new acquaintances that evening.

But the good thing about it all, although busy ans business, was that it was laid back, fabulous and real, as sometimes you can go to events that end up being far too formal and all about business, almost fakey. Yet in Leeds, being lifestyle and with ‘Made in Leeds’ still filming…we’re FUN LOVING and warm. We know how to both get the job done and have a great time…and we all had 8am work starts int he morning. Lol. Work hard, play hard, function like the pros!

I loved going around everyone and saying ‘well done,’ and we were all scampering around to try and find the people we hadn’t met yet, who we had stalked as eye candy on other tables. Lol. I had a sexy grind dance’a than with X Factor Bupsi Brown! Her debut single comes out soon. I cuddled ‘AquaRiva Tequila’ Cleo Rocos, I wiggly shimmied with Nino ‘Won the Best Bar’ Lopes, I gossiped with Ruth Whitely and her beautiful blond besties…It was all fun and madness. That’s when i met handsome Jack Schneider on the dance floor for a hug and a ‘well done’ and we were drunk chatting for a wee bit. Then one of the other presenter girls strutted up and we weirdly turned from properly drunk chatting to being quiet and a bit more formal. Lol. *Boys.*

Life was great, everything was fabulous…I sauntered outside for a bit of fresh air and was handed a goodie bag with the line ‘Chrissie it has booze in it.’ Lol. VICTORY. By that time in the evening and it was still early, but we had been at it since six o clock, you love handheld booze in your goodie bag.

My feet were killing and Bupsi Brown was trying to make me natter more to her, but i saying’ Babe, i need to get outside and sit down’ like it was a mission. lol. So i did..i ouchy foot tottered onto the red carpet, and sat down on a Royal Armouries perch…holding my sequin mermaid dress up and bumped straight into one the PR guys for The Fenton (who didn’t win best pub) but were still having an awesome time. As let’s face it, to get shortlisted is pretty damn good. He was fun, young and sweet and must have been trying to smooze me as i did notice that all his friends told him that they were headed to ‘Yates’ and left him behind like he had pulled. Lol.

Everyone was filtering out now, still filled with life and excitement…and almost every 3 seconds someone would say to me, ‘AFTERPARTY…AT THE MAVEN, COME ON.’ The Made in Leeds guys were headed off, and I think Vicky shouted it at me. Loads of people shouted it at me, even Nino *paused* life for second to shout it at me…and i’m a keep the party going kinda girl.

But i remember turning to the Fenton Guy and saying,

‘I’ve booked a car to pick me up at midnight (like i was a sassy version of Cinderella.) I have work at 8.30 in the morning…’



‘Well you’re fucked, it’s 10 past now.’

Then in that moment, i swooshed away from The Lifestyle Awards and swished into my cab, where Rob the driver greeted me with laughter. (He was on the phone and ended his convo with an ‘i’m off now mate, i have a much better looking person to chat to now.’ Lol I love Rob because he always says that i’m the ‘hardest working human he know’ when i’m obviously not, i just like the sound of it. Lol. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was at work for 8am the next morning, fresh as a daisy and that is what good times, business, love and life is about!

That was a GOOD Wesnesday Night!







Leeds Lifestyle Awards Part 1


Image result for leeds lifestyle awardsย Image result for leeds lifestyle awards

Five o clock, Wednesday Octoberย 5th,ย I swung out of a ‘pull towards you’ door, in a black & white pinstripe shirt, black trousers, heels and big hair. Dashed over cobbles, armed with a hand bag and a giant ‘get changed into’ bag, that was filled with diamante Louboutins, a gold sequin dress, makeup, knickers and kitten winks. Hopped into a waiting taxi, that’s mission was to dash me straight from Pontefract and onto a red carpet at The Royal Armouries in Leeds, for the Lifestyle awards. I had a busy my scheduling was on point. I got dressed for the event, IN THE BACK of the cab and stepped out of it…at the other end…. looking divine. *Pout*

Poor Rob (The driver that I use for everything, that I need driving to) had to put up with my manic tinkering, as I began shuffling around madly in the back of his darling vehicle. I unfortunately ๐Ÿ™‚ had to get FULLY NAKED to get into my dress, (I hadn’t wore pants all day lol,) so all i could do was piss myself laughing… as bronzer, hair spray and sequins flew around behind him and the other cars, on their ‘drive home’ next to us wondered what was going on? ๐Ÿ™‚ I even found a canned gin and tonic in my bag. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s what glamour pusses do. We pack emergency supplies without realizing. Lord knows how it got there? But thank Christ for it…then this happened,

‘Rob, is it okay if I drink this in your car??’ *Shoves gin in his face*

‘Chrissie! You’ve just fully got naked! Lol. A flipping gin is mild! Lol.’

And WHAT A NIGHT! I stepped out of the taxi, got there early, saw men in actual armour having cans of Pepsi, before the big event. LOVED THEM. Said ‘Hi’ and giggled, as I admired the glitzy ย chandelier draped red carpet. I had hugged Jonathan who was running the ‘Made in Leeds’ live broadcast, before hand and sauntered straight in…after I had finished my gin. ๐Ÿ™‚ (The GREAT thing about the Made in Leeds crew was the simple fact that were all fantastic at their jobs. They literally knew who everyone was and why they were there! As soon as you tottered onto that red carpet and through the doors for your picture posey moments, you felt honoured and welcomed. And we like a bit of that, don’t we. ๐Ÿ™‚ )


I got to do my posey pouty moments early…which is always good as i can fit all my selfies and ‘look at me’ Tweets in. Haha.

ย ย ย 


Met loads of people during and after pictures, the Prosecco was everywhere, almost at the ready like glassy bubbles of excitement, with smiles, waiting for us to all indulge. I skipped over to the VIP area in my golden mermaid dress, drank loads and watched Harrison ‘The Perceptionist’ (who is the most amazing mind reader,) …warm up, do his thang and get into it all…at the same time as put up with my shit and banter. ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s charming. He’s fun. He’s ace. I’d hire him. I’d hire anyone who could put up with my shit jokes. ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s gonna do well! I watched him ‘warm up’ with a lady who was nominated for ‘The Leeds Legend’ award. She was more graceful than I, as she refrained from delivering smutty jokes. HOWEVER did kept bringing over more Prosecos. TOTAL LEGEND!! ๐Ÿ™‚ *Heart*


I was having all these conversations with people before it all began and before we went live on the telly. And it was hilarious because there were the owners of all the greatest bars, hotels and businesses in the city, under one roof and they’ve all had me tinker in their spots previously and a great number of times…yet i’ve always been drunk! SO it was nice to see them with a pair of ‘fresh’ kitten eyes. Lol. I was in a good position, as they all had a case of the nerves, as they had award hopes…and well i could just do cocktails and chat to folk, on camera, off camera and take a million selfies.



It got busy fast! That place filled up. Paps and picture taking everywhere. People from Big Brother, Sports guys, Bloggers, Xfactor, Radio shows, Popular DJ’s, Owners of Magazines, Press, all sorts…filled the initial reception room and mingled in with all the owners of all the BEST businesses in LEEDS. There was a magical glitz in the air, an excitement, a buzz, cameras, schedules, Jason the Lifestyle Awards creator, with Sinitta and all the Made in Leeds guys rushing around trying to get everything ready and sorted for the live broadcast! I was waltzing around with my hair toss and pout and with a Prosecco in my hand, before it was time to go into the main room for dinner, drinks and the start of the AWARD SHOW.

I was really excited. I almost skipped into the main roomย in my mermaid sequins,ย where i bumped into Nino Lopes. Now, Nino owns The Maven (which is a fabulous Leeds cocktail bar, like he said there are even people in New York, who know of his bar) and I had actually nominated The Maven to be shortlisted. I’ve tinkered there LOTS in my time and i have always had THE BEST TIME! I clocked him straight away and ย he clocked and knew me immediately. We greeted, we chatted and he bought me a vino before it all madness all began. He was all suited and sexy and i wished him loads of luck. He was with the owner of La Bottega Milanese, who up for BEST COFFEE SHOP. He was also divine and dashing, with an exotic twist and straight away wanted to exchange details, as he has a big launch event coming up that he’d like me to go to. AND I COULDN’T BE MORE EXCITED for it, I’m there! I wished him luck also and spotted DJ Tom Zanetti strutting by with his ever so quiffy quiff, all styley and cool. I spotted Austin from Celeb Big Brother and some Xfactor folk. I hugged a guy who owns a Vivienne Westwood, Sinitta, saw Stephanie Hirst, bumped into my old pal Alex Simmons, a whole bunch of other people and business owners that I knew and then saw Cleo Rocos, who I ADORE more than life itself, as not only did she do the Kenny Everett show for years, but she’s a glamour puss, so much fun and the owner/creator of AquaRiva, which is the purest Tequila in all of the land. The only tequila in the kingdom where in which you will not get a hangover, because of it’s purity. TO ME, SHE IS GOD. We’re similar…super fun, super warm, glammy ‘good time’ girls. She was rustling up cocktails as I was getting seated with the owner of House of Solo (a fashion magazine.)

Everything was exciting, there was a buzz, a magic, a starlight vibe of winners and as we sat down, had meals brought to us and wine poured for us and chatted to others, (I was sat next to another blogger,) a whole bunch of presenters, the Made in Leeds crew and well we slamdunked that bread basket like carbs were our only true love. ๐Ÿ™‚

The room was a purple lit dark, beamed by film cameras, excited people and letters that spelt out the word ‘LEEDS’ in giant alphabet lights. TV’s were around us, I’m sure people were shitting themselves with nerves, as it was all about to be broadcast live and there were presenters not wanting to fuck it all up and nominees all wanting to take home the big old juicy prize..for delicious bragging rights (which we all love) and a merry sense of achievement.

Y’know, one of the good things that happened before the awards went live on air was the fact that a gentleman up on the stage had said this,

‘Could everyone that is the OWNER of a business that is nominated and shortlisted for an award stand up at their table please.’

And when they did, there was this moment of absolute of pride, a real pride, away from the glitter…it felt really wonderful, because these people were people from all walks of lives, who had put in so much hard work for a dream that they had…and they made it work…and now they were stood infront of an applauding crowd, who were wishing them the entire BEST for the rest of the evening. It was a good feeling. I took stalker snappy pics of all their faces in that moment.

I sat, I drank, I smiled…and then we had a 30 second countdown, where we were told that even though we were going live on air at 9pm, which means that we would be allowed to swear and all sorts, we were advised to ‘ease into it.’ Lol.

The AWARDS began…
