Back from a fantastic few days in London at BritMums Live 2013. I was so pleased to arrive in style (via the luggage baggage on the 9am commuter train on Friday.
I met with Avril from School Gate Style and we enjoyed catching up in person rather than online. We were sharing a room at the Easyjet hotel and laughed at the bathroom - it's JUST LIKE the toilet on the aircraft! The room was neat and tidy and for £75 for the night we couldn't complain (well we could because the walls are paper thin and we could hear our neighbours! Revenge was sweet at 7.30am with our over loud alarm clock and hair dryer).
BritMums is a fantastic conference that brings together a lot of Mummy (and Daddy) bloggers for the weekend. Sessions were informative and covered a wide range of topics from SEO, accounting, legal, working with brands, how to monetise your blog etc etc.
On Friday night there was an awards ceremony. It was a fantastic evening and I was so proud to be sat on a table with a few winners. Congratulations to Marlene from Chocolate, Cookies and Candies for WINNING her Best Photography category.
I was totally and utterly moved and inspired by Katie Piper and her keynote speech on Sunday morning - I can't begin to describe how good she was. If you were there, you will know what I am trying to say and if you weren't then trust me, she is totally and utterly inspiring.
A special thank you goes to the founders of BritMums - Susanna Scott and Jennifer Howze - the two of them have done such an amazing job (along with a small army of helpers) to bring a great conference together. It ran like clockwork, was very well organised in a fantastic venue and it was just brilliant to be a part of it.
Avril and I were invited to be a part of the Style Panel session and whilst I don't have any photos of us sat on the sofa, here is the opening slide.
I was thrilled with my personalised Coke Bottle from the Coca Cola stand
It was also great to meet Emma from Fashion Mommy too. Here is a pic of her and Avril
And so on to what I wore. Thank you to Mint Velvet for my gorgeous top for the Friday night awards and to ME+EM for my maxi dress on Saturday. I wore my own scarf (currently sold out sorry!) and UGG Sandals (now in the sale) for extreme comfort on the Saturday.
It was so lovely to spend time with Avril, Kat and Marlene and I LOVE this photo of us all together.
Were you at BritMums? Did you enjoy it? Would you go next year if you didn't go this year? What did you think of my two outfits? I felt really great in both of them and I can't WAIT to wear them again!
