So after a full on Thursday of Hartbeeps, teaching dance classes & private singing lessons 9:30pm seemed like the most appropriate time to start writing this blog... Two and a half hours of party bags, pass the parcels, gifts & emails & then I decide to write! Sit back & relax for the evening?! No not me!! Being a Princess isn't always as glamorous as it seems, being tangled in sellotape & wrapping paper isn't as fun as you may think haha (all totally worth it though).
BUT I HAVE THE MOST EXCITING NEWS EVER!
Yesterday I had a very exciting email to say I was in the Top Four for the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards in the Young Business Person of the Year category. When I first saw the email, I had to admit I did laugh a little bit as I was in a state of shock. It still feels funny saying that Limelight is my business and this is a year and a half down the line... The first email I received was my finalist logo to share on social media & the website etc. I hadn't actually received anything to say I had been shortlisted so I thought it had been sent to the wrong person. It turns out that a letter had been sent and not received - perks of living in a new build!
I was then sent a lovely email with all the details that I had missed from the previous week. I get to attend a black tie awards evening at the Marriott hotel in Huntingdon with a three course dinner - how exciting?! I have to admit, I can't wait to wear a lovely dress that doesn't belong to a Princess haha! Michael (my fiancé) will be coming along as will Katy & Hugo. The bonus of Michael coming is he's really fussy so I'll probably end up eating one and a half dinners oopsie - although he definitely won't share his desert hehe!
I also have MORE lovely news... I have just ordered a beautiful new wig for our latest Princess who will (hopefully) be attending our Royal Princess Ball on the 8th April (if it arrives from America in time & the dress has been made). I hope to replace the Glass Slipper Princess for the Midnight Princess, who is based on the Classic Cinderella. For the first time, I am having my dress made by a local seamstress Zoe (Pinch Seamstress & Dressmaker), which I am so excited about. We will have complete control on how the dress is going to look, which is daunting yet amazing. I am trusting Zoe and will just go with what she suggests as she is the expert. This means NO CUSTOMS FEE for the dress as it's not coming from America - yay!! I'm sure every time I write a blog post I have a new Princess arriving shortly after - totally obsessed!!
Anyway, I will stop rambling now and leave you to enjoy what's left of your Thursday evening... Thank you for reading (if you made it to the end that is)!
