Clothes Show Live 2012

It's that time of year again...

This is the shopping event of the year, with over 500 shops to explore the NEC literally is converted into a woman's shopping heaven for 5 days of the year. 

If you have never been to the CSL before I would highly recommend it to you. Money goes a long way and you'll be able to pick up some amazing one off and vintage pieces you wont find on the high street. 

As I live in Plymouth we had to set off for Birmingham at 5am, It is a long day, but the bargains make it so worth while.The journey was not plain sailing and after suffering a blow out on the motorway we were stuck on the hard shoulder for 2 hours waiting for the RAC. In true me style I found this the perfect oppertunity to crack out some motorway make overs, and we all looked glam when the recovery man arrived to save us. Thank you for your lovely comments on my facebook page saying how I looked nice even during a break down ha ha!

 Luckily we were all ok following the blow out, It was the waiting around that was boring....perfect photo oppertunity time....

Hard Shoulder coffee time!

Jason, our high vis hero!

We eventually arrived at the NEC at 10.30am, so we were an hour and a half late, our spirits werent dampened and we got on with the shopping! 

 For those of you who havent been to CSL, the shopping zones are split up into different colours to make your shopping experience easier... 

I always start in the Pink Zone, whic is hair and beauty of course! 

After just 10 mins shopping I already had my first few bags...

Every year there are loads of celebs to meet and greet, they vary from day to day, some of the celebs on the opening day...


You also get to enjoy the amazing fashion show, which I will post a video to really soon!
