Yesterday I went to Clothes Show Live at the NEC. I went in 2012 and picked up some amazing bargains, however most were the goody bags and I never really got around to using most of the stuff inside them! So this time I decided it would be pointless to waste money and only spend money on what I really wanted. I didn't think much of the clothes there this time, most of it seemed like market stall stuff that I would never buy. I did splurge on a few items though, just not clothing! I went to the Sensationail stand, I have wanted one of their kits for over a year and yesterday I finally bought one. It cost me £54 for the starter kit and two other nail varnishes, which is amazing as the starter kit usually retails for £69.99 and at the moment is £55 on its own at Boots. That was my bargain of the day!
I bought the Ciaté goody bag which was certainly worth the money. It was £10 for the Corrupted Neon Manicure Kit, the Beach House Collection, the Dolls House Mini Polish Set and a little bag with 3 mini polishes, 2 glitters, a sponge and a file. Considering what the kits first retailed for that is an amazing lot for £10! The Vintage Cosmetic Company were also doing a goody bag for £10 and it had some really good brushes in so I bought that! My bag included the bronzer brush, angled shadow brush, foundation and eyeliner brush. There was also a really good stand selling Henry Holland nails and Eylure lashes, so I bought two packs of nails and a pair of lashes. It only came to £5 which was amazing! The last thing I bought at the show was a years subscription to Cosmo for £12 for 12 months which is amazing! I also got some free Elemis skincare for subscribing.
The actual fashion show was amazing as always, I'm just gutted I wasn't there on the day Henry Holland was presenting! Jamie Laing presented on the day I went. I love watching catwalk shows and it was definitely worth going on a trip with college for. I will definitely be going next year and I'm already looking forward to it.
