I received an invite card for Beauty UK with my Scratch Magazine subscription, I have never been to Birmingham, thought why not. I love daytrip, it also gives me an excuse to have dinner at Lasan as well! You can read my rest of the Birmingham daytrip on my personal blog.

I managed to find the ladies from Scratch and was lovely finally to meet Helena! I was telling her how crazy this show is, she said "wait til the Olympia show in September". Oh dear! I better start saving!
|General shot at the show|
|My Tiny World – Ought to be one of my favourite vendors at this show|
|Slices tasters kits, in case you're bad at slicing and wants variety|
This show was nuts, it was endless. I had to skip through lots in the end as the purchases were getting heavy and I was getting tired. How naive was I to think I'll only stay at the show for 2 hours and spend the rest of the time checking out Birmingham? I ended up staying for a good 5 hours at the show and only managed a quick walk around the city centre on route to Lasan. At least I know now what to expect for Olympia in September!
Have you been to one of these trade show? What was your experience like? Worth going? Can't be bothered?
