Clothes Show Live: 2011

This year was the first time I've been to the Clothes show, I have lived a sheltered life! And boy have I missed out! After an awful journey to Birmingham (first train was delayed which made me miss not only one connection, but three possible connections!!) I finally arrived at the NEC.

We weren't due to see the actual show until 5:30pm so that gave us plenty of shopping time. I love the idea of 'goody bags' that almost every beauty stand was offering, but you defiantly need to pick the right places to purchase! I was so excited to see Glossybox there, I've read soooo many blogs about Glossybox, but still had yet to give it a go, but I'm glad I waited as the boxes were only £5! (I won't bore you with the contents, as it is just November's box.)

So here is what I got in my goody bags, plus a few purchases...


Models Own is one of my favourite make-up brands, so I was really keen to get my hands on a goody bag. And I wasn't disappointed! The nail varnish I purchased myself, but the rest of the products came in the goody bag! I am really excited to try out these products, there is defiantly things I wouldn't necessarily buy so maybe I will be converted!


I don't know if I've just been living in a cave, but I had never heard of Jelly Pong Pong before the Clothes Show. It turns out, their a make-up brand, that pride themselves in being animal and environmentally kind and friendly (so that can only be a good thing!) Their stand was manic it was possibly the busiest in the beauty section, so of course I felt as if I was missing out if I didn't go get a goody bag! It was two bags for £5 so this is what I received..

1,2. First is an eye brightening kit, which comes with a handy tweezers and eyebrow brush set.

3. Lip and Cheek stain. This is a really strange consistency, it comes in a hard block but comes off quite watery. It does smells delicious though!

4,5. Another lip and cheek tint. Two colours to play around with.

6, 7, 8. Bronzing kit. This does seem a little dark for me (maybe it will be used when I'm going out to Christmas Parties!) But I LOVE the cute flower puff!

I don't feel these purchases need explaining, because they are all beautiful!


We eventually made it to the show, and saw TOWIE stars, The Risk, Hollyoaks characters, George Lamb and of course the gorgeous Jade from BNTM.

I'm all ready counting down to next year..

And I'm back!

Apologies again for going AWOL, I just have soo much going on at the minute! I've been working alot - 6am starts, so when I get home all I want to do is crash!

So the countdown to Christmas has begun - where has this year gone?! I don't know about you, but I love the run up to Christmas, but then it arrives and I always feel a little let down. This year I am travelling the country over the Christmas period, to visit my family back in the North East, not too happy about all the driving but I am staying here on Christmas Eve:

Redworth Hall in County Durham, how Christmassy?

The run up to Christmas means parties,DVD nights, the X factor final (of course!) and The Clothes Show Live - which I am going to tomorrow!! (I will post about this). The majority of my Christmas shopping is wrapped up under my tree;

Apologies for the awful photos, my camera wasn't to hand! My favourite tree decoration <3 and my yummy (pricey?!) dairy-free advent calender! I also received my first Christmas card the other day! :)

I'm not actually sure what this post was about, just a reminder that I am still alive! I am going to make a Christmas wish list, and let you all know what is on it..

How do you get in the Christmas spirit? Is anyone else off to the Clothes Show this weekend?
