I'm an award-winning journalist!

If my life could be summed up by one song today, it would be Pharrell's 'Happy'. Not just because it's an absolute tune, but because last night was the absolute highlight of my career to date.

Last year, I felt so inspired after my first experience of the Johnson & Johnson Journalism Awards, and decided to pitch an article to the Daily Mail on skin toners, which was my first ever freelance article. This year, I was so thrilled that my article was shortlisted for the Best National Newspaper Beauty Journalist award, and even more so when I was announced as the runner up for that category. 

It made my week, and it made my year.

I just want to thank all of the lovely journalists and bloggers who congratulated me on this achievement. Here's to hoping I've got some more good news to share with you next year!

Oscar Nominations - Best Of Beauty

Ask me what the film of the year should be at the 2014 Oscars, and I'll spend hours umming and aahing about whether Philomena's charm matches American Hustle's pizazz. But if what you want is names of the leading and supporting actresses who beat Hollywood down to the ground in the beauty arena, I'll have three names for you as fast as you can say 'and the winner is'.

Feast your eyes on these gorgeous girls...

NOMINATION: Amy Adams, The Fiery Redhead
FILM: American Hustle

Two words - the hair. Amy Adams' fiery red locks have got me searching the aisles for flame-inspired at-home hair dyes. In the words of Alicia Keys: 'That girl is on fireeee.'

NOMINATION: Sanda Bullock, The Chiseled Chiquita
FILM: Gravity

When it comes to porcelain skin and beauty with structure, nothing comes close to Gravity's space goddess Sandra Bullock. If you can look that good in the middle of the universe, you definitely need an award. Un. Real.

NOMINATION: Margot Robbie, The Blonde Bombshell
FILM: The Wolf of Wall Street

Margot oozes Bond girl sex appeal in The Wolf of Wall Street. She's achieved the perfect blend of softness and girl power. I dare you to disagree...
