I just want to introduce my sponsors for BritMums Live this year. I’ve never been before so am very excited and three people have contributed to make the weekend extra special.
Diet Coke– with whom I have worked before – are very kindly covering my travel and accommodation costs. If you are attending BritMums Live this year, please stop by their stand and talk to them. They are all so lovely. As my life is fuelled by Diet Coke there is every chance I will spend the whole conference lingering around the stand hoping for some free Diet Coke samples. I’ve no idea if there will be any, I’m just saying that if there are, surely I should be first in line?!
Zalando were very generous and have clothed me for the event. I got to pick whatever I fancied from their website- and boy did that take a long time. Who knew how many choices there would be?! I eventually settles on a brand that I know and love- Joules- supplemented by the most perfect shoes in the world by Anna Field. That’s not just me that says that, by the way, LBG and Dimples said so too. I am very grateful to Alison Perry and Denise Estcourt for their fashion advice and helping me whittle my choices down to a manageable amount. I was a little disappointed by the 8 days it took for the products to reach me as I was very keen to publish my What I’m Wearing to BritMums outfit but it was worth the wait: everything fit beautifully and to be able to get so many brands under one ‘roof’ really does streamline the online shopping process.
Bags of Love, who sent DH a gorgeous wash bag last year also very generously gave me a heavily discounted tote bag in which to schlep all my things this weekend. I love the design process on the site. So simple and quick and they now have new options which create the random scattering effect on the bag itself. How did I do it, you say? I chose my bag colours and clicked the blue ‘design’ button. Next I uploaded a number of images, then with a click on the ‘create montage’ button. Then I got to fiddle a bit using the ‘mix it up’ button, add text and play with images until I was happy with the result. And 24 hours later it was delivered to me by a very nice man. Fabulous service I’d say! And hopefully everyone will see and recognise the logo and come and talk to me!
And if that isn’t enough, Bags of Love are offering you a discount to design your own bag too. For the next week, you can get 20% off when you design and check-out using the code Kelly20.
*Disclosure: I do hope it is clear that the companies mentioned are sponsoring my attendance at BritMums Live. Coca Cola UK paid my accommodation and travel, Bags of Love gave me- and you- a great discount and Zalando very kindly gave me £150 of vouchers to spend. All opinions are my own.
