With my friend's present taken care of, I hit Primarni. I'm always keen on finding gems in there, but recently I'd been disappointed with a lot of their products recently. However, their new spring/summer pieces are in, and I could have bought so much more than I did! Here's what I got:
I like to wear a lot of basics, and I wanted a white tee, but most of them in Primark are shocking, with horrible see through fabric and weird fittings. Although I saw these, and they're really nice, soft fabric with cute turn up sleeves. I got my white t-shirt, that isn't too see through (I wear tops under most things anyway) in a size 14 so it's slightly oversized, and a grey one in a size 20 to wear as a night tee. At £3.50 each I couldn't resist.
Cheeky fitting room snapshot! (excuse my top hem showing underneath!)
So.. a midi dress for £7. I'll take it! This t-shirt style midi will be perfect dressed down for the day, or up for a night out. Just perfect, what a bargain! I bought it in a size 6 though (2 sizes smaller then I am!) but it seemed to fit well, and I wanted to make sure it was more fitted, and wouldn't and loose shape if I had got it in a bigger size.
I loooooove this blouse! SO much! Okay, yes, it does look like a china plate pattern.. but there's just nothing not to love about this top. It's a perfect length with an asymmetric hem at the back, and has a really lovely vintage koi fish pattern. Love love love. This one was £12.
I've already got a black blazer, but it's quite formal and I'd only wear it for smart occasions. The fabric and texture (and pockets) make this one a lot more casual, and it'll be a really good jacket for when it's starting to get a bit warmer. It also had a tiny pull on it, so I complained and got a pound off, so it came to £14. :)
Ohhh I fell in love with this bag as soon as I'd laid eyes on it. With satchels being all the range, I thought this one looked so much more expensive than the £9 I paid for it, the studs just add an extra little something, and the size and pockets make it perfect for uni. So excited to use this!
Rings £3... bargain. Can never have too many rings :)
I came across these lying about, the only pair, in my size (you know when it's fate!). Took them to the till, and on sale for £15 I snapped them up! My dearly beloved office boots are so worn out I'm having to take them to be fixed and re-heeled, and these ones are the perfect substitute. They seem comfy enough, and I really like the studs.
Here are all the beauty bits I needed!
I like to have a big pot of intensive conditioner for my hair but they're usually so expensive. I picked this tresemme one up from boots on offer, they're usually about £5 + but this one was under £4!
My normal clean and clear moisturizer can be up to £4 in some places, so I've been looking for a cheaper alternative. This pretty 'Beauty Parlor' box caught my eye, a mattyfying moisturizer, and it was only £1.50! So I can't go wrong really. Also from savers (my favorite place to get bargains!) I got a base, strengthener and top coat for £1.99, a set of fake eyelashes for £1.99, imperial lather bath cream for £1, and then my usual foundation and concealer in superdrug, and my toothpaste in poundland!
I am scared to look at my bank balance now, but I know I won't need to go on a shopping spree again for a while! It makes me feel so good just to go out and buy things though!! I feel like I've definitely rewarded myself after that! Phhheeew. Now to relax for the rest of the evening..
