Not so long ago I mentioned how honoured I was to have been asked to judge a category in the UK Beauty Awards 2010. A box arrived the other day with a plethora of products for my category- Best New Hair Product, and the information about the event went live on the Clothes Show London site. At last count there were 38 judges involved in this affair, and when I realized who they were my heart went all aflutter. Though all 38 are impressive individuals, there were a few that I couldn’t believe I was working alongside, as they’d been idols of mine for many years. Amongst the judges was the lovely Eve Cameron who mentored me when I first started in beauty journalism and Sarah Vine whose columns my Mum religiously cuts out and quotes back to me.
I’m looking forward to the event, but can’t chat for long- I have hair to wash!
