Styling You wins a Jasmine

Nikki Parkinson Beauty, Life 29 Comments

What’s a Jasmine, you ask? So glad you did.

The Jasmine Awards are to beauty journalists what the Walkley’s are to hard news journalists.

A big deal.

They’re held annually to recognise excellence in fragrance journalism in the Australian media. (Stories, blog posts and features about perfume).

Beauty media get particularly excited because there is a first class trip to London and Paris up for grabs.

Now I didn’t walk away with the biggie but I was one of six prize winners, taking out the Best Blog Post category with this blog post. (For details on the other winners, head to The Fragrance Foundation.

And I have a trophy, certificate and nice little cheque to prove it.

Straight to the pool room ...

Now, here’s where I make my little confession. In my haste to rush out the door of the guest wing at Mrs Woog’s I forgot … gasp, horror … to spray on ANY perfume.

… lucky the floral arrangements in the room were enough to mask my serious fragrance faux pas.

Surely I wasn't the only one completely in awe of the floral arrangements?

Yep, that's specially placed "dew" on the grass centrepiece

  2. What the Walkleys are to hard nosed news journos?
    Oh honey, give me a break.

    By all means, congratulations but please don’t compare yourself to seasoned writing professionals. It’s a perfume industry award.

      Yes, it is a perfume industry award – and one I’m really proud to have won. As a former hard-nosed journo of 20 years, I much prefer writing about fragrance than car accidents … but that’s just me.

    2. Grace,
      Nikki could write you under the table. She has a degree in communication, finished a cadetship and worked in magazines for years.
      Now place nice, or SawHole will great angry.
