This isn’t the first time I’ve been to Britmums. Last time was a work trip – I was there to scout for disability bloggers. I didn’t find any, but I did have a great time playing games, chatting to sponsors and attending the speeches. I even won a prize!
This year I am going as a fully fledged blogger, and as such, I need a survival kit!
So, what will be in my BritMums Survival Kit?
Nurofen. I’m going to the Friday night drinks so I might need these in case I, ahem, have an accidental headache.
Blister plasters. There’s a fair bit of traipsing and standing around, and I have very delicate feet. Be prepared!
Chewing gum. Because.
Deoderant. See above.
Dry shampoo. I remember it being warm last year, and I want to stay til the awards and beyond, so hair will have no doubt gone mad by the end of the day and be in need of a few spritzes.
Hairbrush. See above. This one also has a mirror – excellent for checking the next item.
Red lipstick – essential for putting on a brave face when you are nervous as hell about meeting the people you have been chatting to for months. I will probably chuck a lipsalve in as well, much as I love my MAC I find it rather drying!
Charger pack. I will no doubt be taking loads of pictures and tweeting and instagramming like mad – I’ll need more juice for sure! I’m tempted to get two…
Notepad & pen. For taking notes and details. I would have got a jazzy pen, but let’s face it, if it’s not Bic it’s a bit crap!
I also mustn’t forget my Moo Cards!
Are you going to BritMums? See you there!
