I thought it was about ruddy time that I got off my backside (or, strictly speaking, got onto my backside as I am sitting down to type this!) and wrote my ‘I’m Going To BritMums Live 2015’ post. Can you believe it is only 4 days away now?!
I wasn’t really searching too hard for a sponsor but when Boots approached me to say that they would like to sponsor me, how could I refuse? I used to work for them many moons ago and I know what a great employer they are. They really are looking after me and 5 other bloggers this weekend and I am looking forward to meeting them over brunch before we set off for The Brewery on Friday. I shall be sharing many of my posts with them and the hashtag #SummerGoodTimes. As with the last two years, I am staying for two nights but this time I am in The Montcalm with Steph from Stephs Two Girls. We HAD to go for something a little more luxurious!
So, on with the Meme!

Is this your first blogging conference?
Nope – and I have lost count now! This is my third year at BritMums Live.
Are you attending both days?
Yep. The first day is overwhelming. The second day you get into your stride just as you are about to leave!
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2015?
Being even more relaxed about everything. Last year I found it easier because I spaced my time out and divided up what I wanted to learn and who I wanted to see. This time I know exactly what I want to learn more of and it helps to then know which sessions I would like to attend. The other thing I am REALLY looking forward to is catching up with my blogging friends and meeting some new ones – IRL!
What are you wearing?
Well, as always I am wearing a dress on the first day. It is a black and yellow dress which I have in my wardrobe and not worn for a while and I am wearing this together with the sandals I wore last year (so comfy). This means that I am already dressed for the Bibs party in the evening. The second day is all about the t-shirt! Custom-made (pictured below).
What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015?
A better understanding of where I want to go with my blog over the coming months and to make sure I am utilising my social media channels properly.
Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?
You cannot learn EVERYTHING in two days. Choose what you want to know the most. Remember – there is always next year! I have also heard so many people say that they wanted to come and say hi and didn’t because they were too scared or overwhelmed – PLEASE do come and say hello. I won’t necessarily be able to put your face to your blog but come and tell me who you are and I will give you a great big hug!
