I've been a busy girl recently! Slacking on posting as usual
If you follow me on twitter then you may know that I was doing work experience at Clothes Show live in Birmingham as couple of weeks ago. It was an awesome experience so I thought I would share it with you.
For any of you that aren't aware of of what the Clothes Show is, you can click HERE. It's basically a massive exhibition hall full of clothing, makeup and accessory stalls (with some food and fun stuff thrown in there) and there are music acts and live fashion shows going on and its basically really awesome.
Every year, the Clothes Show gives 50 of my university's fashion marketing and fashion students the chance to work there over the whole event and I happened to be one of the students that qualified.
I was originally given a different role but because of a lot of confusion at the beginning of the day, I ended up losing it, only to be told I could be doing something much more fun; working in the VIP room which means CELEBRITIES~~
Please excuse my bad attempt at lightening the photos, my crappy little camera couldn't handle the darkness

It was mine and my friend Emily's job to check VIP and celebrities into the room and make sure they were happy and offer help if they needed any.
We has Kimberly Wyatt, Zoe Birket, Lucien Laviscount, Tobias Mead, some of the TOWIE lot, some of the Hollyoaks cast, The dance crew Flawless, George Lamb, Bip Ling, and a loads more~ and my friend Chris's band FranKo
To be perfectly honest, I didn't know who half the celebs attending were. I'm not too concerned with celebrity or pop-culture but none-the-less it was really interest to see how people who live their lives in the spot light behave when they aren't on TV and they were all absolutely lovely ♥
Me and Emily soon discovered the power that our staff passes held for us and we took full advantage of it.
With our PASS POWER, here are some of the things we managed to get and do.
|Wrong information is wrong|
1. VIP seats at the main fashion show
3. Free stuff from stalls! I was finally able to try out a pair of Eyelure's bottom lashes that I was curious about and we had them put on us
4. Sit in on fashion lectures held by Caryn Franklin who I must say is one of the classiest looking women I have ever seen in my life
5. FREE FOOD. We were given £6 a day to spend on food!
|Or drinks. HO HO HO|
6. Got our makeup done. Free makeovers FTW
We also managed to get backs stage to where the models were. And got to watch them get changed. oh hellooooo
I didn't buy very much because I'm going to Japan in a couple of days and are therefore saving but when I saw this stall right here I HAD to buy something.
|NOMNOMNOM WANT EVERYTHING. Still need to write a blog about the stall for my uni's blog|
I've heard of Regal Rose before through Ananya who bought one of their snake earrings. They're a UK brand run by two sisters~ They have several jewelry concepts which change with the seasons but their stuff is always unique from what you'll find on the highstreet. And better quality. And cheaper. So much to love
I bought these babies~ I'm not too sure what the crystal is but it's like a glittery black, it's beautiful!
|Thank god their site has a pic of the earrings I bought, my camera was not behaving .|
It's been 2 weeks since it ended and I'm back home in London. there's still a couple of things that i want to write about like Ananya's birthday and the prize I got from D~tan's giveaway but I literally have no time because I'm flapping around trying to pack my suitcase because I am going to Tokyo for 18 days!
IN TWO DAYS
