I’m going to Brit Mums Live 2014 – are you?

I’m going to Brit Mums Live 2014 – are you?

Are you going to Brit Mums Live this year? 

It’s only two months away and I’m even more excited after the Brit Mums Meet Up in Cambridge this week – fabulously hosted by John Lewis I might add who treated us so well. It reminded me how lovely it is to get together with like-minded bloggers like Donna, Karen, JenLaura and Ellie over a large coffee and have a natter.

Cambridge Brit Mums Meetup
This year I’m so looking forward to meeting up with Jenny and Susanna, Vicki, Tinuke, Ben, LouiseSophie and so many others that I feel I’ve gotten to know better virtually than personally. It was lovely having my Little Man with me last year but I’m hoping spend some quality time with people this time around and have proper conversation lasting more than a few moments!
And speaking of meeting up with people… come and say hi if you’re going too! Here’s me – via the Brit Mums Live 2014 linky – so you know who to hug…

Name: Michelle – editor at large here at Bod for tea (also chief floor sweeper and bottle washer)

Twitter ID: @bodfortea and you can also find me on Instagram, Facebook (Bod4tea) and Pinterest – come and say hello!

Height: 5ft 4in

Hair: Very, very curly usually although I straightened it last year. This time I’m putting my hair in stylist Johnny’s hands to be blowdried and coiffured at my fav salon Silhouette du Barry on Friday morning. Woo hoo! *Prays it doesn’t rain that day*

Little Man and me at Brit Mums Live 2013 with
Lewis from Baberblog, Ben from Mutterings of a Fool
and a penguin!

Eyes: Greenish grey – hopefully they’ll have been Lasik’ed at Centre for Sight by the time I go to Britmumslive!

Is this your first blogging conference?
No, it will be my 3rd. In 2012 I was pregnant with Little Man and in 2013 he came along for a lovely day. This year I’m flying solo.

Are you attending both days?
Hope so…. *crosses fingers and hopes childcare plan works* … if not then definitely on the Saturday.

*UPDATE* I’m excited to say that thanks to my lovely sponsor Koo-di I’m now going to be able to attend both days – woo hoo! 

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2014?
Having a day for ME *squeeals*, meeting up with some lovely bloggy mates who I speak to so often on Twitter etc but rarely get to see face to face – there will be lots of gratuitous hugging going on, I warn you!

What are you wearing?
As well as being sponsored by Koo-di I’m delighted to be the blogger-on-the-ground at Brit Mums Live for John Lewis Cambridge and so excited that their personal stylists will be helping me to find the perfect outfit for the day. I’ll be writing all about the experience soon so watch this space!

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2014?
Fun, fun and more fun. And if I learn a thing or two along the way that will be a bonus.

Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?
Plan your time! It’s so easy to get chatting and miss the sessions that you want to go to so plan ahead, decide who you want to see speak and plan your socialising around them. Also, if there are people that you would like to meet – tell them! Arrange a place to meet up because it can be hard to find people – I only managed to meet up with some of my fav bloggers just as I was leaving last year!
