I'm Going to BritMums Live!

Name: Natasha 
Blog: The 1970's Diet 
Twitter ID: @the1970sdiet
Height:5ft 5.5 - the .5 makes all the difference
Hair: Long brown and curly - it has been like that since I was 13. I can't be doing with having straight hair as I have a round bear head and feel straight hair makes it look even bigger! So no, I didn't forget to straighten my hair I choose to wear it like this!  I have contemplated getting a fringe in anticipation of more forehead wrinkles but my husband reckons I'll look like Dawn French. Bastard. 
Eyes: Hazel - green on outside brown in middle - will probably be wearing my glasses though after ContactLensGate aka getting a contact lens stuck in my eye for 3 weeks.
Is this your first blogging conference?
Yes and probably my last - I not really a blogger even though I blog, I'm a dieter. I'm not up my own arse and yes I do get free stuff to review and what not but I can take it or leave it. Blogging is a hobby not life or death and I like to be able to write what I want when I want. No arse licking or networking as standard. 
Are you attending both days?
Yes, but will probably leave on the Saturday about 3pm so I can be home in time for tea and to see the kids! 
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2014?
I am looking forward to meeting Rachel at threeyearsandonestonethenhome - we bonded a few years back over Twitter - she is my virtual Em. Will be great to see and hear each other and get the low down show down. Also really looking forward to seeing Nikki of stressy mummy fame. I have always loved her ability to re-furbish her home with freebies. She is the queen of reviews and what not and I mean that in a lovely not jealous way. Her blog was one of the first I came across and I thought I fancy some of that! The products mind not her.. I digress She's not remotely 'stressy' either and reckon she's a genuine all round good egg.
What are you wearing?

Anything that fits. I would love to wear a Willy Wonka type outfit and make some grand entrance by doing a rolly polly exclaiming "I am The 1970's Diet" however, the reality is I'll wear my sticker and hope people aren't thinking "mmm how's that 1970's diet working out for you?" followed by "clearly not very well".  I intend to leave during the awards and get tipsy on Mojito's and eat food with Rachel (see above). 

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2014?
A few hours of mingling about and maybe picking up some techno tips as I am, after all, a techno twat.

Here's a picture of me just in case you don't spot my identity badge!

This isn't recommended on a diet - this was my 40th Birthday lunch in Las Vegas baby! 


  1. Look forward to meeting you. I love your no-nonsense anti-blogger crap stance :)

    1. Looking forward to meeting you too! Thanks - I do like lots of bloggers but just not the whole blogging treadmill if you know what I mean! x
