NEC Birmingham Clothes Show Live

So, I went to the Clothes Show on Wednesday with my Mum and it was brilliant! I've been three times previously over the years aswell and have always loved the cheap deals that you get there. I bought quite a bit and got some really lovely things so I thought I'd share them with you! As it was the last day of the show I managed to get some real bargains!

Make Up:

Rimmel - Baby Doll package includes 3 nail vanishes in pink shades, Extra Super Lash black mascara, Sexy Curves mascara and Vinyl Gloss lip gloss. This was all for £5!!


Bourjois - £5 make up set includes 2 mobile Lip Glosses, phone case, Mini Blush 04, Eye Liner and Black Diams mascara. I have to say I was a little dissapointed with this gift bag, however I am excited to use the mascara and I needed a new eye liner.

Models Own - For a Models Own gift pack you just had to select three nail varnishes that you wanted for £10 and then you'l get all of the above free!! A great deal to not be missed! I got 3 pencil eye shadows, 3 cream eye shadows, mascara, lip gloss, liquid eye liner, blusher and a nail file/buffer. Amazing.

Strech mark massage oil by SilDerm, which I probably won't be using just yet but good for the future. Although it does say that you can use it just to soften your skin so I may give it a go.

Philip Kingsley hair care product and FC5 hand cream. The hand cream is really lovely and soft and in a handy small tude to fit in your handbag. I have yet to use the hair care product but it says it adds elasticity and bounce.

Next is this new 'Freak' tester perfume which I have yet to try, but I do love the packaging I just think it looks really dark and mysterious but also inviting.

Lastly is the Nail Rock minx in leopard print. I love minx stickers, I bought a set from Boots which were ok but chipped quickly and after talking to my friend she said you can get a lot better ones so I'm excited to try these. I also bought a pack from New Look yesterday by GOLD by Giles so I look forward to using them too!


These were the first two items of clothing I bought from Max C. It was buy one get one free on everything! So I bought the navy and white blouse for £30 and got the floral top for free which would have cost me £25!

This cardigan is so gorgeous and from an amazing little shop called 'Lily J'. I would definitely recommend looking it up, they have a kind of vintage feel on their clothes. I got this cardigan for £15 from the sale rail they had and it was the only one left so I thought it was a too good an opportunity to miss. I just love the pearls around the edge and the silk linning.

As I said in the outfit post below I got this skirt for £10 from a shop which I didn't catch the name of I'm afraid. But I just love the zig-zag pattern and all the colours that are in it, the reds, greens, browns and creams. It just really work and is a real statement piece.

I bought this lovely little ring for roughly £5. It was just one woman behind the stall selling jewellery that she makes and everything was lovely. I fell in love with this ring as soon as I saw it. You can find her website here.

I got this little pack from Elle magazine for just £3!! You get December and January's issue's of Elle, Balance Me shower gel, Jemma Kidd make up school lip gloss and a £20 gift voucher for Kurt Geiger!

So all in all I think I got a lovely bunch of bargains! Did anyone else go to the clothes show this year? What did you get?
