I’m going to Britmums Live…

May 16, 2013

I’m off to the Britmums Live mum blogger conference in a couple of weeks. So here’s all about me, in response to the ‘I’m going to Britmums Live’ meme...if you’re also going, make sure you say hello:

Britmums Live 2013

Name: Gill Crawshaw / Blog: A Baby on BoardTwitter ID: @gill_crawshaw

Height: 5.4 / Hair: pretty ginger, loving the power of the Brazillian Blow Dry / Eyes: brown, constantly squinting at my iPhone (apparently!)

Is this your first blogging conference? No, I actually attended the very first Cybermummy event in PR capacity. I was also a last-minute blogger attendee at Britmums Live 2012 along with a very mini Eliza (read my post here). Are you attending both days?: Yes.

What are you most looking forward to at Britmums Live 2013? Finally getting to meet lots of the brilliant bloggers I chat to online. Also, meeting up with people I’ve been lucky enough to meet before. And I won’t have a baby with me this time, so I’ll be able to stay longer (and drink more wine).

What are you wearing? Taking a crazy guess that it’ll be something along the lines of stripy top, skinny jeans, statement necklace (or maybe this dress).

What do you hope to gain? A whole load of blog ideas and inspiration. Meeting lots of other bloggers. Hopefully no hangover.

Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows: I’ve never played Candy Crush (I think I’m the only one…)

P.S. – the photo was predictably styled up using the Beautiful Mess iPhone app. You can read more about it in my first post for Shiny Shiny – woohoo.

    You are not alone, I’ve never played ace Candy Crush either.
    See you at Brit Mums!
