Brit Mums Sponsors (pt1)

While at Brit Mums Live in June, there were a lot of sponsors. This is all kind of new to me.

Although I have been blogging a year, I have only done 1 or 2 reviews and a couple of sponsored posts. In all honesty, I don't understand it all. I am very unsure of how I am supposed to approach people from business, or how I should react when they approach me.

That being said, after attending Brit Mums Live, quite a few businesses were there looking for bloggers to work with. It is becoming a growing industry, the people that read my blog, are the people that companies are trying to reach!
See you at BritMums Live! 2013

So I thought I would round up, and give opinions on, some of the promotional items I was given. So here it is:
These are a large publishing company, that don't just aim for the big names. I had a selection of Children's books given to me, free of charge. They are lovely books and very well illustrated, ideal for reading to little A. Hopefully as his understanding of words improves they will make good starter books for him too.

I have already raved about these HERE. None of us, responsible parents, plan to get separated from our children. It is in fact our worst nightmare. These are so easy to put on, easy to write on, easy to spot. They can be put on before suncream as they have UV protection. They are waterproof! 
I know I am going on a bit, but these really are such a good idea. I have 2 children that wander, one can't help it and one should know better, but gets easily distracted. It is so hard to take all 3 of them anywhere alone. If I have to go out with them, it puts my mind at ease. My little one was so excited, he has already picked the  colour he wants to wear, the next time we go anywhere!

Speck Phone Cases
I'm not giving this a bad review, as it's not bad. However, it is just a phone case. If it takes your fancy click the link. If you want an iphone 5 case, drop me a line, I have one I don't need!

Fox's Biscuits for Coffee
OH MY LORD!! I am no biscuit connoisseur, really! Fox have come up with a biscuit to go with coffee. They took over a lounge at BML to promote this. I went in a little sceptic I mean, a biscuit is a biscuit, right? WRONG!!
In the lounge they offered expert advice on the best coffee to drink, based on your tastes. Then gave you some biscuits to dip. If, like me, you are a big coffee drinker, these are for you. My favourite were the hazelnut ones..........*drools thinking about them*

Finally my favourite freebie....

Not only did they give me some excellent advice on tablets, there are a lot of studies showing how much help tablets are for autistic children. The difference being the price! They showed me one that was only £99! Better tell Santa about that one! most favourite this:
I know, I know OK!! I'm sad, but they gave me a BAG!! Just for listening to them!

A real leather fricking BAG!!! 
( I love bags)

So that's it for this round up, there were others there, that I will share another day, otherwise this is going to get very blah, blah, blah.
