As much as I’m trying to ignore it, there is no denying that Christmas is coming. The adverts are starting on tv, the shops are full of decorations and gifts. Now I will admit to being a late gift buyer, usually rushing around late December trying to buy everything. Recently I was asked by Britmums to do a Christmas gift challenge, which I thought was a great chance to get more organised this year. The gifts had to be £5 and under, and on Sports Directs website.

Well my attempts at Blogtober didn’t last long, I made it to day 3. Blogging every single day is hard, especially when you have plans and end up pretty busy. One thing it has given me though are some great prompts for future posts. Over the last month I have attended two different blogging conferences. The first being BritMums Live and the second was BlogCampOnBoard which was on a cruise ship!! But more on that later. Last year was my first time attending BritMums and I didn’t really know what…
