When My Interior Stylist blog was shortlisted for the Amara Blog Awards, I was thrilled and surprised in equal measure.  I'm very proud of my little blog, which for me is a way to share my work and design loves with anyone who wants to see.  However I am first and foremost a designer and stylist, and sometimes the blog suffers when I'm super busy.  I do try to make up for irregular posts with new & exciting content, with my time lapse films, and hopefully a bit of humour.  So while getting the public vote was pretty awesome, to me, it was the vote from a board of judges, all of whom I have immense respect for, that was important.  The recognition from them and support from Amara is all super lovely.
