I'm Going To Britmums Live 2015

Last June I saw Twitter go crazy with talk of Britmums Live a two-day blogging event in London and I wanted to go. I never went last year as I was very new to blogging and had no idea these kind of events even existed,  I was also heavily pregnant with baby number three. I vowed to go this year and I actually brought my ticket when they went on sale last year and my hotel has been booked for weeks.

 But if you follow me on social media you will know I have been having huge doubts about going as I have never attended anything like this before and I am very nervous. And also because I have never left my little two before and my baby is only nine months old. I have been thinking of selling my ticket and just not going, but after talking to some lovely ladies on Twitter today who I have arranged to meet before the event I have changed my mind and decided to be brave and go, as I know I will regret it big time if I don't go. So here is my I'm going to Britmums post and if you see me then please do come say hello as I will be the nervous Geordie girl.

Name: Lindsay

Blog: Newcastle Family Life

Twitter: @nefamilylife

Height: 5'7

Hair: Currently long straight and ombre but will probably be back to being dark brown by June.

Eyes: Grey

Is this your first blogging conference? Yes, and I am terrified as I know no-one and have no idea what to expect. Although I have arranged to meet up with some lovely people when I arrive in London. Here is hoping don't get lost when I get off the train!

Are you attending both days? Yes, I am arriving on Friday morning and staying overnight as I live miles away in Newcastle. I will be going home on the Saturday tea time as I want to get home to my children.

What are you most looking forward to at Britmums live 2015?
Actually learning about blogging as I have no idea about any of it at all and I have to google everything which takes forever at times. Also meeting other bloggers who I speak to daily and having a full nights sleep, as having two children so close in age means I haven't had a full nights sleep in over two years!

What are you wearing? 
I have no idea at all as I don't know what you wear to these kind of events. I will probably buy something new for the Friday and then just wear jeans on the Saturday for travelling home in.

What do you hope to gain from Britmums? 
So many things such as making new friends, learning about things I have no idea about. Also meeting brands as when I have met brands face to face in the past I have found it much better than via e-mail.

Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?
I have never been before so I have no tips. 

So if you see me then please do come say hello and don't let me near the wine as I haven't drunk in years so I will probably pass out drunk after one glass.
