Let's face it this is probably the post you've been waiting for! Part III of my Clothes Show diary is a peek into my goody bags!

If you haven't already then catch up on ⟶Part I⟵ & ⟶Part II

This year I got lucky and grabbed a Platinum ticket for the same price as a standard ticket.
The perks being a special Clothes Show goody bag and a great seat in the Alcatel theatre for the fashion show.

The Clothes Show bag this year was a little hit and miss though, based on my expectations.
I think I was hoping for something like perfume, a watch, new ghds, a car... you know like the goody bags the celebs get at awards shows?! πŸ˜‚

The 2016 bag was stocked with a fair few laundry detergent samples, toothpaste and muscle ache heat pads from Clothes Show sponsors, which I subsequently snubbed.
However most of these genuinely useful items will probably come in handy soon and I'll thank my lucky stars I got them!

One of my favourite surprises was the limited edition Barry M nail polish and Popband in association with The Clothes Show.
Barry M are one of my go to brands for nail polish so this gorgeous camel/nude shade was a welcome treat!
Especially as nude goes well with virtually everything, you just can't go wrong.
Guys, you did good.


Now I actually first discovered Popband 3 years ago at the last Clothes Show event I went to!
One of their limited edition hair ties was in my goody bag and I wore it to death, so much so that all of the writing on it has practically faded away.
I've since built up quite a collection of patterned and colourfully wonderful Popbands!
They really are the bees knees!!

Does exactly what it says on the tin - "kind on your hair and cute on your wrist!"
Kink free up dos all round! πŸ˜„


Also included in the show goody bag was a sample subscription box. is a monthly sub box full of all the essentials any gal will want/need during her period!
It's like the ultimate little treat box for when it's that time of the month!

I think it's such a cute idea, especially for those times when you can't be bothered to leave the house for that much needed chocolate hit or an emergency stock up on pads!

  • bandzee Hair Ties (a new type of Popband?!)
  • Teapigs Chocolate Flake Tea
  • amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash
  • Vichy IdΓ©lia Skin Sleep - a recovery night gel-balm so excited to try this!
  • Newtons Labs T-Zone Skincare Spot Zapping Gel
  • Cocoba Salted Butter Caramel Truffle - Soooo much yum
  • MontΓ’gne Jeunesse Cucumber Peel-Off Face Mask - My fave type of mask 😈
  • period pads 


The deal with the Models Own goody bag was to Pick any 4 items for £10 and receive some extra 'free' delights in with your chosen stash.
This unfortunately proved rather difficult for me as I have about 30 Models Own nail polishes so trying to choose colours I didn't already have was hard!

In the end I went for:
 A limited edition glitter top coat made specifically for The Clothes Show, a nice little memento! - SHOW STOPPER 2
A new chrome colour from their mermaidalicious holochrome collection - CHAMELEON
A pastel, subtle neon coral from their polish for tans selection, as I LOVE how tanned these shades actually make you look πŸ˜‚ . - BEACH BAG
Last but not least, a Gold Glitter polish from their HyperGel collection - SHEER SPARKLE


Artstix gold nail beads - I have a few of these by CiatΓ© London and they always look awesome for an accent nail
Mini Nail polish in Pastel Pink
Mini Nail HyperGel polish in Red Lustre
Artstix nail art pen in black - Perfect timing as my other Models Own pen had dried out!
Myshadow Loose Eyeshadow Powder in 20. Dark Knight - Excited to try this
4 sided nail buffer - These always come in super handy when I'm doing my acrylics!
Festival Face & Body Paint in Silver - an excuse to glitter me up!


Already have so much love for this brand and their incredibly vibrant make up brushes so I was giddy with gleeeee when I saw that they had a concession at The Clothes Show this year!

So I've had my eye on their 'sushi roll' brush case for a WHILE! Every time I see it on Instagram with it's beautifully iridescent shine, I die a little inside.
Lo and behold it was on sale for £15 at their stand, instead of the usual £24.99. Of course I snatched it up immediately!
Just look how pretty 😍

There were also some incredible deals on their brush sets but I was being VERY sensible as I'm going travelling soon so I thought there was no point getting new brushes πŸ˜‚
It was very hard to walk away. TRUST!


This goody bag was crazy for the money! £10 and 12 products that were worth over £60.
You didn't get to choose what was in the bag so it was a random mixture, kind of like a lucky dip!
I do already have a lot of Barry M nail polishes so unfortunately I did end up with 2 duplicates but hey now I have some extra Christmas presents for someone πŸ™ˆ


Loud Mouth Extreme Lip Colour in Diva - Super pigmented lip paint with a fruity smell!
Matte Me Up Lip Crayon in Shade 1 coral/peach - Soft creamy lip crayon, very subtle matte
Cor Balmy Lip Balm in Trouble & Strife - Tinted red lip balm with buttery moisturising core
Nail Art Pen in White - A push down felt tip pen-esque nib perfect to get artsy with!
Matte Lip Paint in 153. Pink Ribbon - Similar consistency to the lip crayon a soft subtle matte
Get Up & Glow - Bronzer, Blusher & Highlighter Palette
Limited Edition Lolly Gloss in Pink Candy
Aquarium Collection in Atlantis (duplicate no. 1!)
Silk Collection in Forest 
Aquarium Collection in Mediterranean (duplicate no. 2!)
Gelly Hi-Shine in Coconut
Glitter Paint in Catwalk Queen

Soooo many goodies!
Ok so I didn't actually buy any clothes at The Clothes Show πŸ˜‚  but the beauty delights are just so good that I couldn't resist them!

I hope you've enjoyed my run down of experience at The Clothes Show 2016!
