On Saturday I attended the Clothes show for the very first time. Given that the event is only two hours away its daft I've never been before but I enjoyed it so much I will definitely go again.
I met up with my friends Em, Kim, Khila, Leah and Carly and after getting our itineraries for the day at the press/bloggers lounge we went to explore the hall.
What surprised me the most was how much of an emphasis there seemed to be on make up rather than fashion, this was great for me as you know I love my cosmetics and I spent a very happy couple of hours pursuing the Barry M, Rimmel and Models Own counters but it would have been great to see a few more clothing stands in the main hall.
That's not to say there wasn't loads of fashion to see and shows ran all day as well as Q & As with the likes of Mark Heyes so you could easily spend all day sitting and watching the catwalk if that's more of your bag.

It was fab to catch up with one of my fave brands Silly Old Seadog who have featured on here before and who were showcasing some wonderfully kitsch frocks for the festive season. I totally fell in love with a pug print frock. I think it has to be mine.

I had heard from other people that one of the best things about the clothes show was that the cosmetic brands did £10 goody bags which contained loads of cool products. The Barry M one was considered the best last year and this year it was brilliant. It contained a beautiful pink make up bag, lipsticks, lip glosses, some really beautiful nail varnishes including an absolute beaut called Jinglebells which I am so in love with.
I'm still getting the hang of this whole vlogging malarkey and did find taking photos and filming tricky at times but I'm determined to crack it and am loving this new challenge I've set myself.
