The Yours Clothing Voice Award Winner

This year, plus size fashion favourite Yours Clothing have launched The Yours Awards which aim to provide recognition for advocates of the plus size industry.  They’re the people who Yours feel have gone the extra mile, working incredibly hard and made a notable difference in the industry the last year.

Many amazing people and events have been chosen from ITV This Morning’ Alison Hammond to Slink Magazine, The Curve Fashion Festival and, I’m proud to say, yours truly.

I am so happy to let you all know that I have won The Yours Clothing Voice Award.

When I opened my inbox to find an email from Yours Clothing to let me know that I had won, I was beyond excited and so proud.  It is amazing to receive such fabulous recognition for something that I work so passionately and hard at.  I’ve been blogging for 7 years now and not a day goes by where I’m not working on new ideas, content or interacting with others online.

I love that my hobby became my job but to keep it that way, a lot of dedication and determination is needed so to have been recognised by one of my favourite brands is a complete honour.

When I got back from Costa Rica, a package was waiting for me and inside was a gorgeous glass award (isn’t it beautiful?) along with the message:

For the first year ever Yours Clothing have launchedThe Yours Awards.

Our goal of The Yours Awards 2017 is to provide recognition for plus-size industry advocates. Individuals who have gone the extra mile, worked super hard and who have notably made a difference over the past year. We have so much admiration for you and what you do for the industry, it definitely doesn’t go unnoticed.

With this said, we are very proud to announce that you, Laura Ferry, are the winner of The Yours Clothing Voice Award.

You always go above and beyond for our brand, creating excellent content through video and still imagery. We have watched you grow over the years and you have supported Yours Clothing every step of the way. You are a beautiful woman inside and out, which is why we have awarded you The Yours Clothing Voice Award in The 2017 Yours Awards.”

To say that I’m over the moon to have been given this award would be a complete understatement, especially as Yours Clothing are where my love of fashion really started.  You can read all about that in this post.

What a great way to start 2018, I’ve never been so excited for the year ahead career wise as I have with this one.  There’s lots in the pipeline that I’m working on to help to inspire more women to love their body and to be the best version of themselves for themselves.

Winning this award will already go down as a highlight of my year.  All I need to do now is to decide where to keep it… shall I have it pride of place in my living room, go all girl boss with it on a shelf in my office or shall I be a total rockstar and keep it in the bathroom?  I’ve heard that’s where Adele keeps all of her awards to remind her of her hard work every time she goes in; well if its good enough for her…!
