North Somerset Women's Show REVIEW


Myself and Ashlene went to the North Somerset Women's Show last Sunday (20/11/11) over at Cadbury House, it was great! Lots of different exhibitors...Jewellery, hats, handbags, food, spiritualists, photographers, make-up name it, they had it! A great day for us mum's to get pampered! There was also different demonstrations going on throughout the day. Claire from "Just Brilliant – Supercharge your life!" talked about phobias…and managed to cure one lady that was scared of spiders, it was amazing!

We then saw Julia Croft, she’s a hypnotist, so I decided to be hypnotised…it was fantastic, it was so weird, she spoke very calmly and ask me to relax my body starting my head downwards, you could actually feel each body part relaxing, and Julia’s voice just sounded like mumble, but sub-consciously I knew what she was saying…then once I was fully relaxed, she started to wake me up, this time working upwards, it was so amazing, totally stress-free, I felt like a new person afterwards.

The next demonstration was by Kelly from the “Wine Tasting Company” based in Churchill, we got to try 3 different types of Wine, the white wine was nice, didn’t like the red wine, but then we got to try “chocolate wine”, it was absolutely delicious! I never realised there was so much to learn about wine!

We spoke to lots of exhibitors…the first one was “All Wrapped Up”, they sold beautiful little gift boxes personalised with messages. Then we spoke to two lovely ladies from “Slimming World”…Sharon Townsend and Christine Thorpe, they showed us pictures of themselves before Slimming World…such a transformation from then til now, they looked fantastic! Then we met Georgina from “Picture Framers”, she was the first person to recognise us from the “sofa”, we felt like celebrities! We then saw Diane from “Rose & Amber” in Meadow St, W-s-M, some beautiful jewellery, and very reasonably priced, we also got a free charm bead. Then spoke to Leslie from “Avocado”, she had a lovely selection of different foods, we had a sample of her “chutney” it was beautiful, she has done really well as she only started her business September/October time.

All in all it was a great day, and if there’s another show next year, I really recommend going!

On Sunday 20th November 2011 Kelly and I attended the show on behalf of Weston-super-Mum. We were kindly invited by Caroline as we interviewed her on the sofa the week before.

The show catered for many women of all ages, as the show included Fashion makeup, Jewellery and many other wonders of the world... For example we meet a lovely lady at Salt Yourself Out who gave us samples of salts, and peppers from the ancient worlds, from Peru, India and even black Hawaiian lava sea salt, which comes from a small Volcano.

We tasted many samples and the experience was amazing the taste buds in your mouth exploded.

There was also a familiar face to Weston at the show the lady from Rose and Amber where Diane knows what she is talking it comes to fashion.

Many of demonstrations were put on in the upper level and we did attend a few. For Example we adored the Wine tasting demo where I really have learnt a lot about wines that I never knew. And for the first time I actually tasted my first red wine which in fact didn’t taste at all bad.

While at the event Kelly and I were recognised from Weston-super-Mum show which was shown to the stall holders and it was an amazing feeling. The first person whom Recognised us was a lady from Picture framers Georgina .

As we arrived to the show we were greeted by Caroline who really made us welcome.

Another of the demonstrations was for NLP ... Supercharge your life. Basically N=Thought emotion L=Communicate body language. P=Habitual way of phobia and Behaviour. This NPL was developed in the 80s and to be honest I really think that this works. This demo put on by Justbebrilliant.

The overall experience of the day was Fantastic and I know that Kelly and Myself really enjoyed it and to be recognised as Celebs was just the best.

So Ladies Go Enjoy when the next show comes to town… Well Worth it....
