I’m Going To #BML16

It’s that time of the year where bloggers get all excited about the UKs biggest blogging and social media conference, BritMums Live or this year it’s known as #BML16This year will be my third year attending although this will be the first where I have no baby in my belly or in my arms so I’m hoping that means I’ll enjoy it even more than I did the previous two times. I announced my sponsor earlier this year so now it’s time to take part in the I’m Going To #BM16 linky so here goes:

My name:

Jodie

My blog:

Life With Pink Princesses which is a parenting, lifestyle, travel and everything else in between kind of blog that has been running for over 3 years now.

Find me on social media at:

Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube mainly but I also have Pinterest and Google+

How I look:

I am short. As in 4ft 7in short and look like a 10 year old. I have dark hair, or at least I do this year and wear glasses.

Is this my first blogging event?

As I said earlier this will be my third BritMums Live however I haven’t been to any other conferences which I really need to change.

I will be wearing…

My first year I wore two different maternity dresses and was very smart with my heels. The second year I wore dresses and heels too. This year with being sponsored I have agreed with Yankee Candle to wear their branded top. It’s a simple polo black top with a small logo so I’ve got to team this with something. I am thinking a skirt because it gets quite hot in the Brewery. This year #BML16 is just a one day event so I don’t feel as stressed about what I’m going to wear this year.

What I hope to gain from #BML16:

I gained so much on the first year I was so inspired, however the second year I think I was a little distracted by P3 that I didn’t take too much away with me but had an amazing time socialising and putting faces to the people I interact with on social media. This year after taking a brief look at the schedule I have got a couple of things I am really looking forward to learning about. I think most of all I want to have fun, we have a hotel booked for after the event so I’d quite like to arrange to go for some drinks with some other bloggers as I didn’t get this opportunity to last year with P3. So if you fancy it let me know!!

My tips for a great conference:

It’s scary walking into a place on your own for the first time, both years I spent the majority of it wandering alone (forgetting P3 obviously) but it was still amazing and the blogging community are so friendly too. If you are nervous about meeting people, like I am, then don’t be just go for you. Take a notepad and pen. Take some snacks too as I was so hungry both times and the lunches are quite small.

So there we have it. There’s just over a month until the big event and I am so excited!! I have booked a hotel room for hubby and I for the evening after the event so we don’t have to travel after a long day learning. We have plans to venture into London for some sight seeing on the Sunday and enjoy a little bit of couple time before heading home. I still need to make a note of everything I want to do on the Saturday.
