Finding our allies at Britmums Live

Finding our allies at Britmums Live

On Friday the 20th we headed into London to attend our third Britmums Live. Thanks to Bump Pr Sponsoring us to buy our tickets and Smoking Gun Pr¬†sponsoring our Hotel/Travel and Clara's Mum kindly looking after M, we were ready to have a great weekend in London. We were most excited about seeing Kara who blogs at Innocent Charms Chats as we had planned to pop our Five Guys restaurant cherries and kidnap her for a few drinks at G-A-Y bar. It took us roughly two and a half hours to drive into…continue reading →

A Speaking role at Britmums Live 2014

After a blissful night in a comfy bed, not taken up by a starfish sleeping child, it was time to get up and dressed for second day at Britmums Live. Suddenly the thought of reading my keynote was hovering above my head again. As more and more people approached me to ask how I was feeling about reading it, I started to get more nervous. I decided to concentrate on the sessions I was looking forward to and focus on the keynote when it was time. Sadly we didn't attend Ben's keynote, we…continue reading →
So many faces – Britmums Live 2014

So many faces – Britmums Live 2014

Before we even got through the doors of the Brewery for Britmums Live 2014, I was already thinking about the final hour of the event. My lovely friend Lauren had nominated a post I wrote for her blog, to be read out at the Bloggers Keynote. The keynote takes place right at the end of the event every year and is a great opportunity to hear bloggers read their own posts in their own voices. Last year I really enjoyed listening to Charlotte read her post out and never thought I'd be stood…continue reading →

What’s in our Britmums Live Bag?

In a couple of days, C and I will be in the car on our way to Britmums Live 2014, a blogging conference held in London. Last year we didn't really know what to expect, so I ended up packing everything but the kitchen sink in my rucksack. This lead to an incredibly sore back by the end of the weekend as I ended up carrying pretty much everything I took. This year we are travelling much lighter. We are sharing a rucksack and C always travels very light. I am the one…continue reading →

We’re going to Britmums Live 2014

In less than 2 weeks we will be joining lots of lovely bloggers at Britmums Live, a blogging conference set in our favourite City, London. We share pictures and vlogs of ourselves all the time, so there's no shortage of ways to identify us, but we thought we'd put something together for those who perhaps have only just stumbled across our blog. We found a Britmums linky called "I'm going to Britmums Live 2014", so we've taken the questions from the linky and answered them below. Names: Kirsty & ¬†Clara (pronounced Clare-ra) Blog:…continue reading →
Britmums Live 2013 – A room of friends.

Britmums Live 2013 – A room of friends.

Last weekend, we left Monkey at home with his Nanny for the first time ever and drove in to London to visit Britmums Live with 500 other bloggers from around the UK (and world). It was an incredibly emotional goodbye as M drove off with his Nanny, we stood waving with tears on our cheeks, whilst he looked at us like we'd lost the plot. We felt confident with the knowledge that he was in the best place possible and made a decision that we would try to enjoy our weekend as much…continue reading →

We’re going to Britmums Live.

We are both excited to be attending Britmums Live on the 21st June. We have been busy following the Britmums Live hashtag so that we can tweet lots of people before we attend the event. We also set up a twitter list to help others tweet before they meet. It can be a daunting experience attending a large event. It always helps to have spoken to someone going beforehand, even if it's online. If you wish to follow everyone on the twitter list, you can find it here (Britmums Live Twitter List).
