CyberMummy Meet & Greet

I’m sure I’ve spoken about this before but this weekend the event that is CyberMummy has finally come around.  For those of you that don’t know, it’s a blogging conference and basically an English version of BlogHer. 

I’ve noticed around the English Blogosphere that lots of the lovely Ladies that are going to CyberMummy have been doing a meet and greet, that is the brilliant idea of Carly at Mummys Shoes.  I’m really looking forward to it but at the same time sooooo petrified to meet people that I kinda consider to be friends.  What if they don’t like me?  What if I say something stupid? What if absolutely no-one has ever heard of my blog?????  What the heck am I going to wear?  When did I become so dramatic and such a worrier???

Anyways as most of you know, I look like this:

This is my info:

Name:   Emma Brooks

Blog:   This one

Twitter ID:   @emmylouvic

Height:   5ft 11inches unless I wear heels and then I’ll be 6’ 2” at least!!!  Yikes!!! (After reading all the other links on Carly’s post and seeing that you are all mainly under 5’ 7” I can say that I probably won’t be wearing heels ‘cos I’ll feel like Alice in Wonderland after too much growing potion!!!)

Hair:   Shoulder length, brown with a couple of grey streaks!!

Eyes:   Blue.

Likes:   my daughter, krispy kreme, reading, chocolate, vodka, blogging, taking pictures, SHOES, expensive shoes, handbags, London, heavy metal, Glee, Greys Anatomy, running, ice cream,

Most likely to say:


 ‘How much? For one glass? Where I come from you can get a whole bottle for that’!!!!!

'Can I use my card? I didn’t get chance to go to the cash machine'!!!

'My shoes? Yes they are beautiful aren’t they?  They are Vivienne Westwood/LK Bennet!  Uncomfortable? Yes, but just stroke them and feel the fabulousness’

Will be wearing: Something black, jeans and flip flops in the day and then hopefully amazing shoes for the bar in the evening!!

Ways to be my best friend forever: Buy me vodka, tell me that I look great, hold my hand when I look very nervous, tell me that you’ve vaguely heard of my blog!!!

What NOT to do: Dare me to dance on the tables or get my boobs out or kiss inappropriate men at the bar!!!!  What?…..I’m single and child free in London!!!

Will be the person at Cybermummy most likely to: Drink too much and make a complete arse of herself!

I think that’s about all!!  For those of you that are going I’ll see you on Saturday.  For those that aren’t I’m sure that I’ll be blogging about it for the whole of next week!!!   Yay!!!
