Only 3 more sleeps to go and I’ll be enjoying the 2013 BritMums Live and I cannot wait for it all to start. With Kirsty Allsop kicking off the conference and Katie Piper adding a very emotional touch with her speech – Things get better – I have a feeling we’re going to be bombarded with emotions this weekend.
I’m monitoring Room 1, the main room (hear the pride in my voice?) and there are some brilliant sessions in there including Storytelling, How to take video on your smartphone and Working with charities close to your heart that will give me invaluable insight to how I want Mari’s World to progress over the next year.
Of course I shall be on the BritMums stand during breaks looking to meet as many bloggers as possible and tell them all about BritMums and how they can use the popular platform for their benefit.
This means I need to look the part, but what does one wear?
It’s pointless me wearing breakneck heels, tight skirts and power sholder pads as that is so not me and would be very uncomfortable so when Zalando kindly offered me £100 to spend on their site, well, I spent an entire evening browsing before making my mind up!
I knew I wanted to wear a dress or a skirt and I wanted it to be noticeable not wishy washy, something to reflect my personality and Zalando is full of ideas and all sorts of brands and prices. To prove my point I bought my favourite skirt from Desigual discounted by £15 and the red jacket for only £12! I chose a jersey dress that hangs loosely allowing me to feel comfortable at all times and cool made by Anna Fields, who is knew to me but she has some gorgeous pieces for very good prices.
Another brand I discovered on the fab fashion site was Pier One, I almost chose one of their dresses but in the end went for some classic black ballerinas that will cover all items in my wardrobe. I did go slightly over budget, in all I spent about £115 but I got four fabulous pieces that I shall enjoy all summer and come winter, I’ll be back looking for jackets and the children’s wear
