I’m Going to BritMums Live 2015 – My Family Ties

It’s my first visit to Britmums Live and as a new blogger (my blog will be one in July!) I am really excited to attend albeit a little nervous! So here is my addition to the I’m Going To BritMums Live 2015. 

As well as meeting up with many like minded bloggers, I am really looking forward to gleaning a little inspiration from the keynote speakers who are sharing their wisdom to all the BritMums attendees this year. There are so many fantastic speakers to look forward to and I have printed off all the details so I don’t miss out on any! If you, like me, are new to the annual BritMums blogging event, below are a few of the fabulous key note speakers to expect.

BritMums - Leading the Conversation

I am really looking forward to hearing Ella Woodward (author of Deliciously Ella) as her book has given me so many inspiring ideas for my own family meals and snacks (sugar, gluten and dairy free) and has helped me come up with some really tasty ideas for my OH as he has embarked on a Paleo diet that follows a similar pattern, not only that but she is a talented and inspiring blogger and I can’t wait to hear her story.

On Saturday we shall be inspired by another key note speaker – the lovely Carol Smillie, to talk about her life as one of our very recognisable and much loved UK celebrity’s and something I didn’t know about her (but have seen the product for sale in Australia!) is her business Diary Doll  which is now in 14 countries, I am really looking forward to hearing more from her.

Also on Saturday but in the afternoon the beautiful Caprice is speaking, another speaker who promises to be an inspiration as well as a fascinating speaker, as her trans Atlantic life has been well documented and her By Caprice clothes are stylish and coveted, she juggles motherhood as well as her charity work and business and I for one can’t wait to hear how she does it so well!

What are you wearing? – I still haven’t decided! It will be a dash to find something smart but comfortable and I will have to find some shoes with a bit of a heel as I am a little on the short side! I am taking inspiration from the Pinterest board What I’m wearing to BritMums Live 2015 and the gorgeous modern colours from Joules look perfect! That or a huge metallic ball-gown !
