Great post Joanne - I'm sure there are lots of nervous folk heading to BritMums. Some good advice there :)

Joanne Mallon

Thank you very much Charly!


This is a really generous post. For my first event I got there fashionably 15 mins late and found it to be an inpenetrable crowd of people having The. Best. Time. Ever. Crap!

I got myself a glass of wine (and made a mental note to only have two) for something to with my hands mainly.

Every person I ended up talking to worked for the store/event, which worked out well for my blog but meant I wasn't mingling.

Then I got talking to a group who were polite and fashionable but not my kind of people. So I approached the group of people who looked the most relaxed and we clicked instantly - hurrah!

Next time - like you suggest I'm going to be a little early (unless it's a PR event in a club night type setting), wearing some cute accessory and I'll be the one welcoming a nervous newbie into the convo :0)
