Vote For Us + Win a Set of Gold Utensils!

By Hollie Brooks @MiaFleur_home

Well folks, it’s August.  That doesn’t mean I’ve taken to alerting you of each month passing, what it does mean however, is it’s Amara Interior Blog Award time!  We’ve very kindly been nominated again and this year we’ve got a beauty of a competition for you, but more on that below.

IBA competition

First, I’d just like bore you for a few minutes to tell you what the awards means to us.  In 2014 lil’ old MiaFleur were nominated for the inaugural IBAs; now a nomination might not seem a lot, since we only had to be nominated once, but to even think that one person out there thought our blog was worthy of a nomination, well, that felt pretty good.  So for the following weeks’ we badgered everyone we knew to vote for us and low and behold we made the shortlist.  Wow!

We attended a swanky ceremony, met some lovely people and that was as far as we got that year.  So 2015 rolled around and it was time to do it all over again.  But this time we were up against some seriously big guns… I’m talking multi million pound business, big guns.  But THEN, they called OUR name.  MiaFleur… Winner!! I let out an audible ‘shriek’, which I felt horrendously embarrassed about afterwards, but hey, that’s what a few glasses of prosecco and one hell of a shock will do to you.  We were all a little bit teary whilst accepting the award on stage, which may seem a little over the top, but it was genuinely emotional for us.  This is not a part time endeavor for us, this is our life.  Our 70-90 hour a week life, so any sort of recognition that people like what we’re doing really means a lot to us.

The lovely Natalia from British Style UK nominated us this year and needless to say, we would love to be through to the shortlist again.  If we make the shortlist, it’s then up to the judges to decide the winners and whilst I don’t think we’d be lucky enough to win twice, it’d be pretty amazing to be in with a chance.  So once again, we are asking YOU, our lovely readers, customers and friends to vote for us.  We’re also running a competition as a bit of a thank you for taking the time to vote and we’re giving away our ever popular gold utensils – a FULL SET no less, worth £156!
