I’m going to Britmums Live 2016


I am really excited to be able to write this post as I didn’t think I’d be able to make it this year but…. I’m going to Britmums Live 2016 (#BML16)

It’ll be my fourth time at the conference and I can’t wait to head down to London for a weekend of meeting with friends, enjoying the buzz at The Brewery and soaking up the atmosphere. I’m even hoping to learn a thing or two from the sessions!

I’m delighted to be able to say that Boots Soltan have invited me to Britmums Live as one of their guests this year and I’m really looking forward to working with them over the Summer and learning how to keep my family safe in the sunshine.

Boots Soltan are also sponsoring the conference so if you’re heading to The Brewery you’ll be able to visit their stand to learn more about how they’re protecting skin and how their products are suitable for the whole family.

If we chat on social media, or you’ve never heard of me before but you’re going to #BML16 then here’s a bit more about me…

My name: Emma (aka MrsShilts)
My blog: Life According to MrsShilts
Find me on social media at: twitter / facebook / instagram
How I look:

May selfie

I’ve got short blonde bobbed hair which is mostly straight but is sometimes coiffed into beautiful curls (not by me, I must add!) I’m a little smaller than I was last year thanks to my recent weight loss. I’m not overly confident and always worry about what I look like and what others think but I’m super friendly and will always say hello. If you see me please do come and say hi.

Is this my first blogging event? No, this will be my fourth Britmums conference. I’ve also been to Blog On and Blog Camp this year.

I will be wearing… I have no idea! Probably something really comfy and casual. Layers are good for The Brewery too as it can get a little warm and cool if the air cons on.

What I hope to gain from #BML16: I can’t wait to see lots of friends, have a catch up and meet new people. There are SO many new blogs around this year so I’d like to meet some new faces. I’m also really intrigued with how the change of day is going to pan out and I’m looking forward to some of the sessions already.

My tips for a great conference

  • Wear comfy clothes
  • Take the essentials – phone charger, business cards and a pen
  • Plan the sessions you want to go to in advance, chances are you’ll forget which sessions are on and you’ll be rushing to find the room
  • Smile and mingle, it can be quite cliquey but rise above it and talk to people, you might not get another chance

See you there!
