Last Thursday night I handed over our two daughters to my hubby, waved a bye-bye and off I went to catch a train to London.
I was invited the Product of the Year 2016 Awards ceremony, and I was very excited. I have been part of the jury panel since 2013, and love the fact the awards are getting bigger and better every year.
The event took place at the Park Lane Hilton and this is what it looked like before all the guests arrived!
After a lovely 3 course dinner and a few glasses of Sauvignon Blanc, it was time to reveal the host of the awards.
Can you recognise him on the photo below?
Rory Bremner was beaming with lots of funny comments and the room was filled with laughter most of the time.
I even had a selfie with him done after the awards, but the picture quality is not the best, so will let your imagination run wild!
With my friend Monica Costa from London Mums
The awards celebrations would not be complete without some musical entertainment, and as every year we were not disappointed. 4th Impact owned the stage and looked absolutely amazing!
The awards are a true celebration of the best innovative products on the market, so make sure the next time you do your shopping you look out for the Product of the Year stamp of approval.
Can you spot me in the middle?
