This year will mark my attendance at the prestigious Britmums Live blogging conference for the 3rd year and instead of being nervous and anxious like the previous 2 years .. I am so excited I could burst!
In true Britmums Live style I am taking part in the Bloggers meme to help give those going some more information about me and maybe spot me and come and say Hi!
Name Jaime Oliver
Twitter ID JaimeOliverUK
Height *cough cough* .. 5ft
Hair Blonde with brown highlights … OK that might be the other way round
Eyes .. I have 2 .. both of which are brown
Is this your first blogging conference? Nope .. 3rd Britmums
Are you attending both days? .. With bells on I am!
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2015? .. I adore the atmosphere at BML and I love catching up and talking with folks face to face that I spend all year on the other side of computer screen to.
What are you wearing? .. Hopefully clothes .. although still yet to be decided! .. I tend to wear a branded T-shirt on the Saturday and comfy jeans .. Friday it will no doubt be panic buying the day before as nothing seems to fit!
What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015? .. Cake … BML has great pastries and cake .. but also some new friends, knowledge and another boat full of fantastic memories!
Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?
Comfort .. don’t do heels unless you are used to walking in them for miles and standing in them for 12 hours.
You must bring a large suitcase .. there are fantastic goodies bags and often stands giveaway products and samples too
Get used to staring at breasts … I am not being rude, most folks wear a lanyard type thing explaining who they are and what blog they are from .. if you are rubbish like me at recognising faces you will spend the whole time staring at people’s chests trying to read lanyards!…. sorry
Don’t be afraid to miss a session .. You don’t have to go into every session over the weekend. I tend to miss a couple of the session if the topics are not on my must attend list, I use that time to socialise and visit the brands and PR’s that attend while it’s quite.
Pens and pencils are provided so don’t feel you have taken masses of stuff for note taking and many provide a link you can visit with slides on for you to download. (or take photos of the slides)
External phone charges are a MUST! .. With hundreds of bloggers in one space, all wanting plug sockets .. it’s never going to happen so I have an external phone charger that means I can pop my phone on charge mid sessions while sat at a table.
