I'm Going to Britmums Live 2014

I am not sure how this has crept up on me, but in less than 2 weeks time I am off to Britmums Live. Last year I went for the first time. I was totally out of my comfort zone (I am no good at small talk) but had a great time. Apologies to Bex from The Mummy Adventure if I came across as a stalker, but it is kind of weird meeting people whose blogs you read so often. Well to help you out if you are going this year here is a picture of me.

To help you even more I often look like this, and no " it's not the end of the world" I am perfectly happy I just sometimes have a miserable looking face! I promise I will try and smile as much as possible so you aren't subjected to this. Please come and say Hi no matter which face you see :-)

So here are my details:
Name: Louise
Blog: A Strong Coffee
Twitter ID: @astrongcoffee1
Height: 5ft 2in
Hair: Strawberry Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Is this your first blogging conference?
No, I went to Britmums last year.
Are you attending both days?
I am as it is my 1 day a year away from the boys! It also means I get to be me for a couple of days.
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2014?
Meeting some lovely bloggers, having a laugh and learning a few things about blogging.
What are you wearing?
Jeans and flat shoes. To be honest I haven't really thought about it much yet.
What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2014?
I'm looking forward to meeting old blog friends and making new ones. I am also interested in some of the food blogging talks.
Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?
Don't be afraid to say hello to people. I found everyone I spoke to really friendly. So if you see me come and say Hi.


  1. Woohoo! I can't believe it's so close now. Looking forward to seeing you again :)

  2. Yay! I'm already checking out train times :) And for what it's worth, I think you're always smiling/laughing....especially when you're child-free! x

  3. Haha love it! I have a miserable face too even when I'm perfectly happy! ;)

    It's when strangers comment. I used to get people at my Sat job telling me that it might never happen!
