There was a lot of young teenage girls giggling and screaming as soon as you entered and the first thing I noticed was all the goodie bags. Nearly every stall had goodie bags but this wasn’t like events I have been to previously, you actually had to pay to get a goodie bag. Definitely a novel idea so I set about finding out which bags were actually worth parting with some hard earned cash. Helen E was one of my first stops, mainly because I use that make up anyway. For £10 you get an awful lot of makeup that is all useable. in other words no silly colours which is what I found inside the Barry M bag. Who really wants green mascara? The magazine stalls were selling their goody bags for around £3 each and with a drink, snacks, a magazine and a few other bits they were worth picking up as a drink of water cost a small fortune at the drink stalls. So perfume had some great bags that were aimed at a younger audience and there was quite a few cheaper makeup stalls who had a lot in their bags but the quality was obviously not as good as the Barry M and Helen E makeup.
The Clothes stalls seemed to be aimed at teenagers and pre-teens or maybe I am that out of the fashion stakes that it just seemed that way. I did like drooling over the converse and Dr Martens on offer but there was no way I was carrying those around all day.
I went to the Clothes show with no make up or products on my hair so that I could have a make over done whilst I was there. This is how I started.
