“You may study all the '-ologies' of the world, but if you do not learn swimology, all your studies are useless.” – Author Unknown
After the success of our 2014 Swimologists programme, we decided to pick another set for this year. We loved working with our fab bloggers from last year, and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them and their families, so this year we have picked another great set that we admire and love already!
Over the next few months, these bloggers and their gorgeous children will be putting our Konfidence products to the test in a variety of different ways. We have invested a lot of time into the programme and we hope to develop long-term partnerships with the parenting blog community. We have two sets of ambassadors: Baby Swimologists and Child Swimologists.
Both will be reviewing our products, but in different ways. For the babies, we have enrolled them all on swimming lessons with various swim schools. We can’t wait to see how they get on as they embark on their swimming journey. For the slightly older tones, they are going on a trip to Alton Towers and staying in their Splash Landings Waterpark Hotel or the new Woodland Lodges, and we can’t wait to see how they get on with their Konfidence products while having an amazing time with their families. Of course, all Swimologists will be doing other swimming and fun for us, too!
We hope that you enjoy following their journey over the next few months as much as we do!
Here are our Baby Swimologists for 2015...
Kara writes the popular Chelsea Mamma blog, which actually comes from her love of Chelsea FC rather than the fact that she lives in the London suburb. She lives in Bournemouth with her six children, so she is definitely an expert at all things motherhood – we can’t wait to find out how her and her littlest Seb get on with their swimming adventures with Konfidence.
Steph writes the gorgeously designed Hello Baby Blog, which is filled with beautiful photos of her little family – she has two children, Jack and Phoebe. We are excited to see how her and Phoebe get on as Swimologists, as the whole family are fans of swimming and Phoebe already does lessons.
Nicola writes Life Through My Eyes, a family lifestyle blog all about life with her two children, Paige and Parker, who happen to be utterly adorable. Parker hasn't done swimming lessons before, so we are looking forward to seeing how they all get on.
Three cheers for Ryan, who is our first ever dad Swimologist. We love that he is on board as a Konfidence ambassador. Ryan writes the fab blog Dad Creek, all about life with his family – it’s funny, refreshing and interesting. He has two little ones and we are really looking forward to hearing about what the dads think of Konfidence too!
Katie writes a gorgeous blog, Katie & Baby, all about her life with her super cute little daughter Ellie. She also has a fabulous YouTube channel, which is really popular. It is full of hauls, vlogs, and is a great resource for any new mum. We are really excited to be working with them both.
Liza has a very glamorous blog, where she writes about beauty, fashion, home and lifestyle – and all about her wonderful adventures as a mum with her son Vinny. She also has very popular Instagram and YouTube channels, and we can’t wait to read all about her exciting new swimming journey as a Swimologist.
And here are our new 2015 Child Swimologists...
Jenny writes the beautiful blog Let's Talk Mommy, all about her experiences as an American expat living in the UK with her husband Mr P and two children, Buba and Missy Moo. They are going on lots of travels over the next few months, including a trip back to the US, so we are really excited to see how they get on with all their Konfidence goodies...
Kerry writes all about her life over at Lived with Love, a stylish and inspiring blog all about fashion, fitness, beauty and family. Kerry is mum to Sienna and fiancée to Warren. We love her blog and YouTube channel, where she does brilliant vlogs about daily life.
Lauren writes her blog Real Housewife of Suffolk all about her life as mum to her two gorgeous boys, Charles and Harry. It's full of honest accounts of motherhood and life and is filled with stunning photography. Lauren and her family just bought a boat last year, so being active and enjoying the water is something that means a lot to them. We can’t wait to find out how they get on as Swimologists, too!
Charlotte writes the quite frankly fabulous Write Like No One's Watching, a beautifully written blog all about life as a full time working mum to her little boy William. It's full of inspiring tales of fitness, food, style and finding love again after being a single mum. We can’t wait to see how her little family get on as Swimologists.
Jess writes Along Came Cherry, a lifestyle blog all about life as a mum to her two gorgeous little people, Cherry and Tiger. Featuring travel, fun, adventures and beautiful photos, it’s been on our must read list for a long time, so we are thrilled that she is now one of our Swimologists this year!
