Introducing my Brit Mums Live Sponsor 2016 – The G Cap

With Brit Mums fast approaching, I thought it may be time to introduce my sponsor and get a bit excited!

I remember last year umming and erring about attending Brit Mums Live. I’m no stranger to conferences because of work but I still remember feeling a bit out of my depth. I’d be blogging since the January, so around 6 months but so many bloggers were talking about it; I decided to take the plunge.

It was the best decision. I had a blast. It was so good to learn stuff, put so many faces to names and just have a good old chat with people I had met online.

I didn’t bother getting a sponsor, as thought as a newbie, I wouldn’t get anywhere.’This doesn’t have to be the case though as plenty of newbies do.

However, this year I felt a little different. Was it worth having a go?

I was only really concerned about my ticket price, as I am staying with my brother-in-law who lives in London and a train ticket off peak from Brum to London is pretty cheap.

I decided to go back to a lovely company who I had worked with not long before; The G Cap. I was a bit nervous, as you always feel a bit cheeky emailing asking for something but I decided to try. I was so happy to get a lovely, supportive response and here we are now!

I was involved with this lovely company earlier in the year when I did a review of their fab children’s product.

Named after the designer Nadine’s son Giovanni, the G Cap is a stretchable, reusable bottle cap cover, that prevents spills. Genuis.

You basically cover the bottle in question with the cap, add a straw and you are away.

The cap is non-toxic and food safe and is free of BPA, PVC and Phthalates (basically the stuff you don’t want kids products to be made out of!)

You can also bung it in the dishwasher (has to be for a lazy bum like me) and it comes with a neat little travel case. In the US it retails for $6 so is a little bargain.

The gremlin loved it and it has proved very useful!

I’m very grateful to Nadine for the sponsor and I think it just highlighted what a friendly, approachable company they are. Very keen to help out and very supportive. Exactly what you want in any company and product.

So for me, finding a sponsor this year was fine. So my advice?

  • Just go for it; what’s the worst thing that can happen? They say no and you politely reply thanks for responding and try again.
  • Offer plenty in return and be clear about it. I have already done a review but have written this post and will be promoting the product over social media as the conference approaches.
  • Offer information about your blog; your stats, your DA, your social media following. Makes a decision, that bit easier!

I really hope to see some of you there. Who’s going?

I’ll be the pregnant, redhead, sulking about no wine.

    I really want to but I’m really scared to go to Brit Mums. That and I don’t have a sponsor or a ticket…but I just don’t feel like I’m ‘big enough’ or noticeable enough to go, or that no one will talk to me, or that I will have to go on my own. I’m just being a big old scaredy cat about the whole thing really! Maybe next year! When I feel ‘ready’ #marvmondays

    Oh wow! Never seen this before. Would be amazing to have in my bag for travel as we fly frequently and spillages seem so inevitable, but carrying multiple sippy cups etc is such a pain. #fartglitter

    I feel exactly the same as Kat about Brit Mums. Really want to go but so worried about going on my own/no one talking to me. I know it’s silly because I’m missing out, maybe next year I will feel more confident. Congratulations on getting a sponsor, go on you for just going for it. Hope you have a great time and don’t miss the wine too much!xx #Fartglitter

    Fab sponsor. I can’t say I’d heard of this before but how utterly genius. Archie is a spiller through and through even though he knows exactly what he’s doing. I’d love to see his face when we popped this on a bottle haha. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo
