Sparkles & Stretchmarks: A UK Parenting & Pregnancy Blog: I'm going to Brit Mums 2014!

I'm going to Brit Mums 2014!

After seeing so many bloggers posting about the Brit Mums 2013 conference last month, I was simply gutted that I hadn't attended myself.

And I was determined to ensure that I get myself along to the Brit Mums 2014 conference - I know its a whole year away, but I wanted to be sure that I was able to attend and so I started looking into costs.

It's not at all cheap to be able to attend when you don't live locally which is why so many bloggers secure brand sponsorships - and I am pleased to say that I have been lucky enough to secure a sponsor for next years event.

I knew a sponsor would help me endlessly in being able to attend, but I was worried that it may mean I'd have to almost sell my soul in promoting a company I didn't really care about in exchange for sponsorship - so I was relieved and DELIGHTED when one of my favourite websites, My 1st Years, agreed to be my sponsor!

I have blogged about My 1st Years in the past with my review of their Personalised Hi-Tops and their Royal Baby Personalised Gift Set, and I can honestly say that I adore their products - they offer everything that I love - personalisation, amazing quality, fabulous presentation and affordability!

I am THRILLED to be sponsored by a company that I am genuinely a HUGE fan of, and am so excited for next years conference - a big thank you to My 1st Years for sponsoring Sparkles & Stretchmarks!


  1. Am so happy for you that you have a Sponsor! Am still working on mine :) So hope I get to go xxx

  2. i want to go to. and to cybher but it would be expensive.coming from yorkshire. maybe we could bunk up lol. how do get a sponser do they just contact you or is it something you have to pursue.

    1. Cybher doesn't appeal to me quite so much, I'm not sure why?!
      You have to approach companies and look for sponsorship :)
      Theres a few of us who from the Mummy Bloggers group on Facebook who are going to go and bunk up together, you should come! :) Some of them are coming from around Yorkshire way too!
