We started our evening with an awesome pre-party thrown at Hotel Continental. This is the third time we visit the Hotel for blogger purposes and the prize we received for “Newcomer of the Year” is also a weekend stay at the Hotel, haha. We mingled with the other finalists until it was time for the show to start!
The show was packed from beginning to end with lots of inspiring artists on stage. It was so cool to see our names on the screen when they presented the finalists. One year of blogging and we were nominated for three awards – that is pretty awesome! When the awards was over, it was time for after party at Seeds. It was so incredibly nice to be congratulated and we were truly the happiest chipmunks that night.
Yesterday we were the happy winners of the award Newcomer of the Year 2014.
How ironic isn’t it that the newcomers had to open the show? We were nothing but a big blur when accepting our prize. Our hearts thumped, and the nervousness made our legs jelly. Tsutsumi was so shy she hid behind the bouquet the entire speech while I concentrated on not to fall while walking. We were caught in a so called blackout, cause it was so surreal. However, we managed to thank our readers something we find very important!
Newcomer of the Year is a prize with a bit of everything so in many ways was this an incredible price which we are very grateful to receive. One year of blogging have given us many memories and there are so much more to experience!

The jury speech to the lucky winners was really sweet! Here is the translated version;
“Newcomer of the Year is the new shooting star to the blog heaven and is the blog that despite starting in 2013 first got it’s big debut last year. This blog is also nominated for Instagram of the Year – the place where it all started. With inspiring images, international appeal and large dimples – the chances are big that these sweet sisters will characterise the blog world in the future.”

Cheers to a succesful evening! We matched in white once again for the Costume Awards! The evening was awesome from beginning to end. Our night started with a vorspiel with the team from 730.no before we grabbed a cab to the event. More pics will be shared in a later post, but here is a snippet of snaps from our phones!

We had so much fun at the fashion-filled event and the night was filled with nominations, the prettiest dresses, half naked models from Gant, popcorn bars and awesome company with the team from 730.no We’ve received invitations this year as well, so tomorrow is going to be a magnificent day. Add us on snapchat: Lillehoang and TsutsumiHoang for fast and fun updates!
I’ve gotten numerous questions regarding the leather jacket that I bought from a pop-up store. I didn’t know where it was from since it didn’t have any tag on it, but we just received a pretty similar one which is just as cool! Since the sun was shining I styled it with my all time favourite skort from ZARA, kept it cool with Reeboks and a shirt underneath my knitted sweater and spiced it off with some leopard action.
