Bisley blogger wins national award in style

It has been a busy year for a blogger whose work has been praised in a top competition.

Fashion conscious Gillian Lee Rose from Bisley was highly commended in the Next Newcomer category in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013 with Next with her blog , which is just 10 months old.

Focusing on the season’s trends and easy ways to wear fashionable items, her Gillian Lee Rose blog is filled with tips for women who follow the hottest fashions.

Gillian Lee, who also works the summer season in Corfu when she is not at home in Bisley, said she was pretty shocked when the winners were announced.

Her blog was one of 10 that made it into the newcomer category finals.

She said: “I thought the other blogs in my category were all so good so I didn’t get too involved in thinking about winning anything.

“Once they called my name I just felt a huge rush of excitement and pride that my little blog that was only 10 months old had won an award.

“Cosmopolitan is a long standing publication and Next is one of the biggest retail giants so I felt honoured to be awarded on behalf of both of the companies.

“It means a lot to bloggers to be recognised by such huge companies such as Cosmopolitan and Next.”

A special evening meant a special outfit for Gillian Lee, who flew back from Corfu for the awards ceremony.

With an invitation saying ‘dress to impress’, she looked through her wardrobe and settled on an outift that was smart but comfortable too.

She chose black leather trousers and then added a white blazer to contrast and a grey marl vest top, finished off with white pointed court shoes. Minimal gold accessories were added to the statement outfit.

Gillian Lee said the award has already increased traffic to her blog, thanks to features on the Cosmopolitan and Next websites and the competition announcements on social networking site, Twitter.

Future plans for the blog, which will keep its high street fashion focus, could include a three-ways-to-style feature.

Gillian Lee thanked her friends and family for their support.

The former Winston Churchill School pupil added: “My family are all very proud and my friends are very happy for me. They understand how important the award is to me and they are all very supportive of my blog and everything I do. They help me in any way to succeed and during the blog awards nominations and voting they rallied up so many other people to vote so they certainly helped me become one of the winners on the night.”
