What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2013?
Sharing my experiences, reading my keynote speech and have the biggest cuddle with Jennie I can muster.
What are you wearing?
Not a clue see my tips at the end of this!
What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2013?
For me Britmums isn't about blogging, its just about community. I feel happy with what I've achieved in blogging and its had to take a back seat to life this year. Perhaps I will have renewed vigour after Britmums, or perhaps it will be the end of my blogging journey, I don't know.
Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows
I had never been to England before I decided to move here. I arrived with a suitcase and fell in love with the place straight away and have never looked back.
My tips for Britmums Live
  • Dress for comfort. It's a long day, particularly on the Saturday. Don't worry too much about fashion, there will always be someone more dressed up than you and less dressed up.
  • Leave your laptop at home. I took a laptop to Cybermummy and never used it. By all means take a tablet (I don't have one) or your fancy phone, but honestly you will be so busy you may not use it.
  • Don't underestimate the pen and paper, I take copious notes and still find this the easiest.
  • Smile, relax and enjoy. Everyone is feeling nervous and a little apprehensive.
  • Make friends. I feel really shy in crowds so if I seem aloof I'm not being rude, just being me, and snap me out of it.
  • Don't feel you have to attend everything. Playing hooky from a session and visiting the sponsors whilst everyone else is in session is a great way to get around and discover who is there and what they have to offer.
