The British Plus Size Awards 2014

Soaking it all in at last years awards

How fast time flies. It seems only yesterday that I was excitedly getting ready to go to the Plus size awards and now details have been announced about this years event.
A celebration of all things plus size I had an absolute ball last year. I wore my lovely Mermaid dress (which Beyonce then copied) posed on the red carpet, ate scrummy food, drank far too much fizz and even accepted an award on behalf of Accesorise.

I was nominated for best plus size blogger ( which went to the magnificent Fuller Figure, Fuller bust) and awards were given to various categories all celebrating plus size fabulousness.

I won, I won-prize for most green sequins on one frock

The next British Plus Size Awards, will be taking place on Saturday 22nd November 2014 at the exquisite Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, 22 Portman Square in London. 
Yet again its a black tie event (such a good excuse for a va va voom frock) which starts on the red carpet, moves onto a champagne reception, followed by an award winning 3 course meal during the awards and show (the food last year was really good and as a very picky vegetarian that is high praise indeed)

As with last year there will be plenty to watch including Performances by the amazing Rosie O’Sullivan (who I saw at Plus North last year, her voice is beautiful) along with the inspiring Emma Halsam who shocked the nation with her plus size pole dance on this years BGT the legendary Blobby Williams ‘The true heavy weight of pop and comedy’ as well as a few more to be announced.

Whilst the glitz and glamour of last years event remains the same there are some differences which I think will make it even better.
This year its all about the awards. There will be no pageant element, ensuring that the awards themselves are the star of the show. To this end there will also be some additional categories added so all aspects of plus size positivity can be recognised and celebrated.I am also delighted to report that a certain Ms Hopkins will not be invited.
If you feel a fashion brand, blogger or celebrity deserves some recognition for helping make our plus size worlds a nicer place pop on over and give them a vote (I'm not to proud to say I would love a nomination) Tickets will be on sale soon from the BPSA website with a percentage going to this year’s charity CRY I will give you a shout when they are available.There is also a blogger specific giveaway in the works which is rather exciting indeed-keep your eyes peeled!
