That time Cocktales got shortlisted at the Cosmo Blog Awards…

I am absolutely over the moon to be writing this post!

I am lucky enough to have been shortlisted for the Cosmo Blog Awards 2013 in the Best Sex & Relationships category.

Your nominations have got me into a shortlist in the category along with six other brilliant blogs. Voting is now open until the end of August, which along with a panel of judges, will decide the winner of the category. So, if you enjoy reading the CockTales & think I deserve a vote, you can click the badge on the right or find the voting page here .

Thank you so much for your nominations so far. It is such an amazing feeling to be acknowledged for something I love doing.


If the Cosmo Blog Awards has brought you here, welcome to Cupcakes & CockTales. It’s tradition to explain when the idea for this blog came to me, or how it came to me, and quite honestly I have no idea. It’s the sort of blog which may prompt people to assume I have an innate hatred for the opposite sex, which I would like to take this moment to explain is not the case. In fact, this blog documents all of the revelations I have myself discovered when it comes to relationships and dating or puts into words some of the things people find difficult to figure out in relationships.

Having said this, like someone wise once said, “there is a special place in hell reserved for women who don’t help other women” and so if this blog makes a few ladies smile, even at the expense of a couple of male egos, well I don’t consider that the worst thing I’ve ever done.

So for anyone who hasn’t seen the CockTales before, here’s a few oldies for you to check out
