I’m Going To Brit Mums Live! {2 days to go!}

With just 2 more days to go until Brit Mums Live, the butterflies are now setting in! I didn’t quite make it to the finals after being shortlisted for a BiB Award, but, I’m still so over the moon to have gotten nominated and shortlisted, that it’s kinda made my blogging year :D

I can’t wait to attend Brit Mums Live, meet fellow bloggers in real life, join in some workshops and meet new people and brands. It’s definitely going to be an exciting two days – if not a little nerve racking!

I’m so lucky to have found someone to go along with – a fellow Disney lover who writes over at Dreaming of WDW. I already read Sam’s blog having found it via a mutual Disney forum (The Dibb) and turns out she’s not so far away from me, so we’re meeting a the train station to go up to London together! Small world! Oh, and we happen to be in WDW at the same time too!!

Right, I’ve rambled enough, here are my Q&As….

Name: Michelle (or Shell)
Blog:  The Purple Pumpkin Blog
Twitter ID: @MsPurplePumpkin
Height: 5’4″
Hair: long, black
Eyes: brown, and I wear purple glasses


Is this your first blogging conference?
Indeed it is! I didn’t even know that blogging conferences existed in the UK, so I was pleased to find out about Brit Mums and give myself the opportunity of attending! I’ve been shortlisted for a BiB award which makes going to the conference even more exciting! Even if I don’t get to the finals, it’s going to be a great experience!

Are you attending both days?
Yes! Can’t wait :)

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2013?
The whole thing really! Having never been to a conference of this sort before I’m going to be open to everything that gets put in my path! I can’t wait to meet other bloggers, attend the workshops and hopefully walk away with a new outlook on my blogging journey :)

What are you wearing?
My go-to clothes are leggings and a tunic – no doubt purple will feature somewhere in my outfit!!

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2013?

Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows
I want to be able to do a road trip across the United States of America, from east to west coast! I need to win the lottery first though to fund that!!
