Emma Conway

YouTube & Building a Fandom

Emma is a top parenting blogger and the award winner vlogger behind brummymummyof2. Based in Birmingham, Emma charts the high of being a Mum to a young family but can often be found moaning about the lows. She has appeared in everything from Oscar nominated films to discussing the impact of loneliness in new Mums on BBC1. Which is quite funny seeing as a lot of the time she is found writing or filming in her old pyjamas in bed.

Sara-Jayne Jones


Sara-Jayne is a Mickey Mouse loving, professional wrangler of three small blond boys and two mischievous Siberian Huskies. A former insolvency lawyer turned photographer, you can see life through her lens over at Keep Up With The Jones Family. Sara-Jayne adores Chocolate Oranges, Welsh rugby, and collects 1950s dresses with impractically huge petticoats. Being a Disney Bride, she also suffers from Mary Poppins syndrome and constantly feels the need to have things practically perfect, which in her life is practically impossible. Sara-Jayne smiles constantly and is apparently widely thought of as a goody-two-shoes, although she recently discovered a rather evil side whilst playing Cards Against Humanity with Laura and friends in Scotland.

Grace Hall

Grace lives in Hampshire with her husband, 2 boys and a very large pile of lunch boxes!
