6 Reasons Not to Attend BritMums Live 2015


BritMums Live 2015

There have been a few negativity's bouncing around on social media about the bloggers that are attending BritMums Live this year. I agree it is not everyone's cup of tea but we are all entitled to have different interests and nobody should judge you for them!

If you are still unsure whether you should book a ticket or not, here are my 6 reasons not to attend...

1. If you hate nice people. This event is full to the brim of super friendly, lovely people and if you are one of those people in life that have an aversion to kind words or smiles then this event perhaps isn't the place for you.

2. If you dislike free food, drink and goodie bags. These strange things are openly displayed and available at the conference and if you hate freebies you may be out of your comfort zone.

3. If you don't want to embrace the world of blogging and learn new skills along the way then again I would avoid buying that ticket. Amazing bloggers, keynote speakers and inspirational people are around every corner and if that's not your bag avoid The Brewery on 19th and 20th June.

4. If you enjoy complaining about things and embracing negativity you may struggle to maintain your composure. You may even crack a smile at some point!

5. If you can think of nothing worse than discovering great brands, trying out new products and getting the chance to win lots of fantastic prizes over the weekend maybe give it a miss.

6. If you don't want to see posts about "What I am Wearing" and "Whats in my bag" for BritMums then avoid social media from now until mid June (and beyond) because there are hundreds of them! For some reason people are actually excited about going to an event and getting a break away with lots of friendly people!

If like me for some strange reason all of the above appeals to you then whizz over and get your ticket. Blog your heart out about how excited you are, join in the 'I'm Going to BritMums Live' meme and IG the hell out of those new clothes you got for the weekend! 

If you don't want to attend then you really don't have to but please don't bash people who are genuinely looking forward to it because...quite frankly if you can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all!

If you are going I hope to see you there. If not...enjoy your weekend!

  3. Good post, maybe those bashing are a little jealous they can not attend?
    I can't go because it is too far and I am disabled, but it doesn't turn me into a sourpuss and try to ruin it for everyone else.
    I am looking forward to the blog posts after the event!

  11. Oh this is simply brilliant. And I love a bit of "what are you wearing" and ALL of the hype that goes with it. As the saying goes "haters gonna hate" but you've kind of put it all in perspective with this rather clever post x

  14. Aww I've not seen any negativity but then again I've not been on social media that much. My only criticism is that it is MASSIVE and it can be a bit daunting on your first go. However, I am pretty gutted to be not going this year. Finances say no! Maybe next year :) xxx

  17. Lol I've obviously not been on social media enough to see what's been said. I mean who cares!?! If you don't want to read about it don't click on the link. I like the people, the workshops and the freebies so I'm there!

  19. Oh I've not seen anyone be grumpy about it but I'm excited about a weekend away with friends & some blogging inspiration!

  20. Personally I find the oh my god I have to plan my outfit / lose weight via a crash diet / become a better blogger by June chat a bit tedious. In January it's a tad wearing. But I unfollowed most of those. I can cope with the rest as blogging events are great when you are part of the crowd. I wouldn't begrudge anyone that.

  24. Haha. I love this blog post. I'm so looking forward to meeting you. Sarcasm is my bag! Oh and I'll look forward to being grumpy in your presence, stealing all your freebies and stuffing myself with chocolate muffins in your face! :-) xx
