BritMums Live 2014 - time for Blogger chat!

So the lovely Mari from Mari's World has suggested a linky for BritMums Live 2014 so that we can recognise some others when we get there. There will be hundreds of bloggers there, so I'm hoping to meet some new ones alongside my old favourites - always happy for a random stranger to come up and say hello to me as I love a chat! So here's goes with answering the suggested questions:

Name: Steph
Twitter ID: @stephc007
Facebook page: stephstwogirls 
Height: 5 foot 5.
Hair: Short-ish, brown with hopefully no grey bits on the day.
Eyes: Hazel/greenish, but I'm guessing you won't be gazing into them for long as there's so much to do at these events! Anyhow my pic (with my two girls) is quite obvious on my blog so I'm hoping I'm recognised by that - would love it if at least one person came up to me and exclaimed 'oh, I know you, you're Steph!'

Is this your first Blogging conference?
No, I went to BritMums Live 2012 and Mumsnet BlogFest 2013.

Are you attending both days?
Oh most definitely. Just a little bit of childcare to sort first (Mum?!)
What are you looking forward to most at BritMums Live 2014?
Naked waiters. Oh, OK, semi-naked.
Also amazing speakers - from Katie Piper, Kirstie Allsopp and Emma Freud to Jane Blackmore, Emma Bradley, Penny and other experts. So much knowledge to be gleaned I feel!

What are you wearing?
No idea yet but I'd hazard a good guess at jeans and a T - comfort is key! Possibly may even invest in a cross shoulder bag for a real 'hands-free' experience.

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live?
Some fresh inspiration on how to 'manage' my blog - creating interesting and appealing content is my focus this year.

Do you have any tips to pass on to others who have not been before?
The best thing I ever did was arrange to meet someone (the lovely Steph from Was This In The Plan?) before I went into my first conference. Courage in numbers; very important if, like me, you are the sort of person who finds it hard to hover and 'butt in' to other people's chats.

So if anyone fancies dropping me a tweet or a comment and would like to meet up with a friendly face beforehand, please do and we'll face the world together (or something)!
