Clothes Show Live 2014

Every December, the Clothes Show arrives in Birmingham! The perfect girl's day out for a bit of shopping, pampering and a fabulous fashion show. I was lucky enough to go along to the Saturday and Monday events with Good Results PR. 
I thought I'd share some photo's from around the show and some of the littler stages and do another post on the big fashion show. 
On the Saturday, I met up with fellow blogger Hayley and we explored the show, checking out the bargains and saw Alfie Deyes and FleurDeForce who were special guests. I managed to meet Millie Mackintosh which excited me greatly as I just think she's gorgeous. A lot of the celebrity  stands you had to buy something to get a photo with them which was quite annoying.
On the Monday, I went with my friend Becca and her Mum for a girly day out. As the show was closing the next day a lot of bargains were around. I picked up the Ciaté advent calendar for only £10 and 1D's perfume also £10. Oh, I also got a cheeky snap with Andy Jordan to add to my collection! He's literally the nicest lad though and had a little joke with Becca and refused a photo! 
On the smaller stages they were showing graduate collection's and we managed to catch the Bora Aksu SS15 collection which i saw at LFW and Julien Macdonald's collection which was incredible!

Worcestershire College on the Graduate Catwalk - Fave collection.. I love a bit of Tulle!

If you are interested in past clothes show's (2013 part 1), (2013 part 2) and (2012)

Tomorrow's post should be about the fashion show, which was amazing but i took like 2,000 photo's! So lot's to get through. I'm now just heading to the dentist which i'm not a fan of the dentist so i'm dreading it! Wish me luck!

Christmas Cape

Yesterday, things got really exciting. I submitted my dissertation and actually had a full night's sleep! To celebrate, Alex and I spent the afternoon shopping, mooching round the German market and  dined at Pizza Express.
I only took a couple of photo's but I wore my new cape from Ravi Famous which i got at the Clothes Show for only £20! I've been living it since I got it as It's so warm!
High neck jumper - Matalan
Boots - ASOS

I'm heading home for Christmas tomorrow and I'm super excited. This also means I have more spare time to do lot's of blogging over the Christmas holidays. Wahoo!!

The BBC Good Food Winter Show 2014

A couple of weeks ago The BBC Good Food Winter Show 2014 came to The NEC, Birmingham. Me and Alex popped along to see what was going on. If you know me, I'm not the biggest food. I love food but I'm just unbelievable fussy. 
There was lot's of food demonstrations, brands selling kitchen accessories, food and drink to taste, book signings and the super theater. The Super Theater was a little ticketed show with different high profile chefs, we were lucky to go to two great shows with James Martin and then with Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. 
First up was James Martin, who made a three course meal;
- Crab Salad with mackerel and homemade mayo
- Crown of Lamb with Stuffing
- Cinnomon Monkey Bread with maple syrup served with Snickers Ice Cream
The theater smelt incredible when he did the lamb and the monkey bread looked delicious but apparently had like 12,000 calories! James was really funny and looked way better than on the TV!
The second show with Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood was in the afternoon. After Mary's persuasion the audience chose to see Paul's lamb pie to be prepared. The pair of them together were incredibly funny, Mary is so cute and Paul Hollywood is pretty dishy ;)
They also prepared two desserts each Paul's Pistachio Biscuits and Mary's Lemon Parfait.

I did also manage to get a sort of selfie with Mary whilst she walked past me. I couldn't resist even though it's really not the best.
I'll include some other photo's I took from all the different stalls around the show. I was really impressed with the Smeg stand, they were making pizza! Wahoo! It's also my life ambition to own the full Smeg collection in pretty pastel colours so i did go overboard taking photo's!

 It was such a fun day out, I really enjoyed myself. There's a few other BBC Good Food events on round the country round the year. I'll definitely be going back for the Summer show!
Have you ever been?
