Last night, at an exclusive event attended by hundreds of bloggers and their friends – we celebrated the awesomeness of the blogosphere and acknowledged the efforts of ALL the shortlisted winners at this year’s Cosmo Blog Awards.

It’s no mean feat winning one of these awards – an astonishing 46,500 people entered and 28,000 votes were cast… so, fresh from London’s OXO2 Tower, it’s time to announce the winners… and don’t forget to keep checking back as we’ll be posting pics from the night as soon as we can!

First up, we’d like to wish a HUGE congrats to GRACIE FRANCESCA from The Ugly Face of Beauty for winning our very own award – the Next Newcomer. Gracie has risen up the ranks during the past year, documenting her fabulous sense of style across her blog, youtube and instagram channels. She says; “In a world where everything is hectic and busy, this is my place to clear my head. You’ll find street style outfits, my addiction to makeup & my recovery journey with mental health issues. I also have a love affair with my doggie Snickers & cheeseburgers. Here is everything I have a passion about.” Aww, we love her!

And now for the remaining winners… Brace yourselves, it’s a long list!
