Clothes Show Live 2011

Yesterday (5th) I went to the Clothes Show Live at the NEC Birmingham and my god it was amazing! When I was at school I went with them twice and since then hadn't been since I'd left school but this year I definitely wanted to be there, I could of gone any day but I picked the Monday because James 'Arg' Argent was going to be there and so was Mark (Maria Fowler stepped in for him as he was still in australia). My Dad brought me the tickets for my birthday and Me and the Boyfriend went.

It's hard to explain the feeling of what happened before we got there but to cut a long story short my Boyfriend got on the train to see if it was the right one from Birmingham to the NEC and the doors began to shut, I wasn't on the train I was waiting on the platform by the door because he was only going on to check, there was nothing said over the speaker that the door was shutting even though the man said there was, my boyfriend was on the train not even knowing if it was going to the right place and I was on my own (there was strangers around obviously) on the platform. I need to cut it short else I'll be here forever and I'll be missing out the kind of bad bit (which is funny now we think about it) He did get on the right train, I got on another train and met him at the NEC stop, Thankfully it was straight forward that I found where the other train was because I'm not use to trains. 


We got to the NEC, watched the fashion show and it was amazing seriously. I had a major crush on one of the models he was lush and he retweeted one of my tweets that I send to him eeeekkk I was so excited and happy :) still am! I saw George Lamb, Arg, Maria Fowler, Jeff Braizer, some of the Hollyoaks cast, Lucien Laviscount, Tobias off BGT, Lady off BNTM (forgot her name) and Kimberley Wyatt.

Here are some pictures of the day...

I have more and also videos of Arg performing. The shopping was great I got a few things which I love, had a lush brown bread tuna sub which I haven't had for so long mmm. I have cut this quite short really, if I mention everything about the day it will just be a page full of writing, I love love loved it.

One thing I did notice was I had a few of the eye brow bar ladys from the different companys come up to me and ask what I filled my brows in with and asked if I'd like them to try the new powders on them instead, I did decline because if I didn't like the result I'd feel unconfident with my brows looking shitty all day but I do want to make them look better so I'm now thinking of trying it out, can anyone recommend any good eyebrow shadows? Thank you in advance :) 


  1. I went yesterday too! I didn't see half as many people as you did though :(
    A lady also approached me from the beautiful brows bar.. she did my eyebrows and to be honest I didn't even notice that much of a difference, but stupidly I brought the palette (with some other things included) for £30 - then noticed as I was going round there were more eyebrow bars selling pretty much the same thing cheaper. Gutting!

    The HD brows set that came in one of the Glossyboxes is quite good :) Sleek makeup also do one that I like which is great and not too expensive. X

  2. Ah that's a shame, I made sure I knew where they were because most years I've been I have missed the celebs and really wanted to see Arg.
    The lady who asked me about it made out that the powder was amazing but I saw a lady having hers done and personally didn't see a difference what so ever!
    I've heard about the HD brows I was going to get it but think I may try the sleek one first as I've heard that's pretty good too :).

    Thank you for your comment it means a lot to know that people actually read my posts, Thank you :) xx
