Blogger Breakfast with Britax Roemer


When Britax Roemer sent me this event invite, I replied so quickly that I am sure I must have set some kind of world record for typing speed. Everything about this event sounded awesome - I mean, it is breakfast (the best kinda food) and I get to take the baby too. And it was just as good an event as I imagined it would be.

The event took place at the Bourne and Hollingsworth buildings in London (AKA the most instagrammable place on earth). The sun was shining, the rooms were filled with tropical décor and plants (including one that Ava may have bitten a chunk off of at some stage during the event), and all of the babies were playing together amongst the lego bricks and noisy car toys. The other bloggers slowly arrived and everyone looked amazing in their summer dresses but, most importantly, everyone was just so nice.



We chatted mum stuff and blog stuff as we waited for everyone to arrive. A couple of lovely ladies from the Britax Roemer team showed us the fancy looking pushchairs and car seats dotted around and we did some necessary boomerangs (well, everyone else did. Poor old me had broken her phone the day before).

Once everyone had arrived, we were taken through to be seated for breakfast. A slightly hungry Ava was popped into her highchair beside me as the food started to arrive. There were little rolls filled with either smoked salmon and cream cheese, bacon, or avocado (because it's not a blogger event without avocado). There were also lots of delicious pastries (I practically ate my body weight in cinnamon swirls) and fruit skewers that Ava devoured.


 
Whilst we ate, the Britax Roemer team gave us a small talk about the company and showed us a picture of the royals who had used their car seats and pushchairs over the years (I mean, if it is good enough for Kate and Wills, it can't be bad). It was interesting to learn more about the company as I knew of the brand name but didn't know much about it past that.

As the breakfast drew to a close, I took a rather grumpy Ava through the play with the toys and she was soon followed by a few other babies. The ladies from Britax Roemer then showed us the functions of the products they had brought along for us to test out and one baby even fell asleep in the swivel car seat so they are definitely comfy.


We mingled around and chatted with each other - and tried to pacify our overly tired children. It was really lovely to meet with other mums and spend the morning at such a relaxed event that didn't mind too much when Ava started getting whiney. And I even went away with a goodie bag full of cute stuff for Ava, a hand lotion for me, and one of those noisy car toys that may have mysteriously lost its batteries by the time we got as far as Swindon on the train.

I would like to say a big thank you to Britax Roemer for inviting me to this awesome event (and Rosie in particular for dealing with all my frantic emails over the last couple of weeks). And to the staff at Bourne and Hollingsworth for making us feel so welcome and giving us delicious avocado-based cuisine. And to all the lovely ladies I met at this event - you guys are awesome.
