Fancy sharing a bottlefor2 at BritMums Live?

The countdown has begun to BritMums Live. It is exactly one month away!

This time last year I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter, and hadn’t even heard of BritMums.

Oh how life has changed.

Bottlefor2 was born out of my need to find and use my brain again, 6 months into maternity leave – “from baby brain to me again“. I have absolutely loved getting into the blogging world. It has rekindled my passion for writing.

Being pretty new on the scene I thought it would be wise to do this BritMums Meme to introduce myself to all you lovelies.

I look forward to cracking open a bottle of wine and having a drink with you all.

Not a blogger? Not attending? Maybe we can schedule in a drink another time?

Cheers, Lucy

Is this your first blogging conference?

It is. I’m a little bit scared, but also excited.




Are you attending both days?

Yep. I’m going to be there for the whole thing. Leaving my husband home alone with the baby. What a hero!

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2015?

Learning stuff and meeting people. There is so much to learn from others, and so much that is still new to me in the blogging world.

Being slightly technically challenged, I’m looking for some simple tips and tricks to improve how I manage my blog. It’s so much easier when someone actually shows you, isn’t it.

I heard a rumour there was free wine. I am looking forward to enjoying a few of those with some of my new blogging friends. A quick shout-out to Carry on Katy and Teacuptoria, who are concerned London may not have enough wine for us!

And also to the lovely Hannah @Buddingsmiles, my roomie! Yay.

What are you wearing?

Something comfortable is probably a good bet. Planning what to wear this far in advance, is all too much for my baby brain. I’m lucky if I remember what I’ve planned for dinner after a long day.

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015?

I really want to learn. I hope to be inspired. I’m looking for ideas and to meet brands too. I plan to rejig my career and possibly set up a new business over the summer. It’s likely what I do will involve my blog, so BritMums is a well timed opportunity. Mostly though, I hope to meet blogging friends and make new ones.

Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?

As someone who hasn’t been before I’d say: be friendly, be brave, get involved, chat, have a drink or two, relax and soak it all in.

For anyone who is still curious and wants to know a little bit more about me, I was challenged to write this A-Z of me last month.

Cheers everyone. Can’t wait to meet you.
