A rather big haul! Primark,Boots,New Look & Select.

As i have been good recently by saving some of my pennies, I thought i would treat myself to a bit of a shopping spree.  I am absolutely loving alot of the primark clothing that is out this season, it's a shame that the prices are going up too!  I have tried to be strict with myself over the past few months by only buying things that i know i'm gonna get good use out of. Think i've done a pretty good job so far :)

Here is what i picked up...


Coral coloured clutch - £3 reduced from £6. For me, this will be perfect for taking on nights out as the colour suits alot of things i tend to wear. (I love how the gold clasp gives it a slight vintage look also!)
Nautical striped pencil skirt - £7. I have been wanting one of these for a while now & was amazed at the price of this one. I tried it on with a denim jacket and i love it :)
Black & white lace peter pan collared top - £6.00.

Tribal print chunky knit jumper.   I was AMAZED when i found this!
It is very similar to the one in Mango which retails at ALOT more than this!
This was only £7 in the sale!! A.m.a.z.i.n.g.

Boots were doing the 3 for 2 mix & match offer, so obviously I had no choice but to take up this oppurtunity :)
The first thing i picked up was some hair dye. My hair is naturally dark brown, usually if i dye it, i normally go even darker because I like the glossiness that it gives my hair.  As it is getting warmer, i thought i'd treat my hair to something different. So i got the loreal casting creme gloss in the shade mahogany.
My hair has not been in the best of condition lately, so I resorted in buying 3 aussie products in the hope that they will reawaken my dull, dry hair.  I got the luscious long shampoo,  the 3 minute miracle colour deep treatment & the miracle hair insurance leave in conditioner.
Next, i got a tanning mitt from the st tropez range.  Was slightly disappointed that it isn't what i thought it was. I was expecting it to be a mitt that I could apply my fake tan with, but its actually something that removes excess tan. Never mind!
Then..i had a £5 off No7 voucher.  I alwaays buy something from this range whenever i have a voucher, I feel that it's a waste if i don't.  I have heard good things about the No7 eyelash curlers, so i decided to pick them up.  With the voucher, they only came up to about £2 something, so complete bargain!

Lastly I popped into select....

From there, I picked up these very cute black shoes with little tassles on them for a bargainous £5! They were originally £16 reduced to £8..couldnt believe that they were even cheaper when i got to the till.   I have been in need of some new shoes for work. As i am on my feet pretty much all day, I needed a pair that would provide lots of comfort and with good durability too.  These seemed to do nicely :)

I hope you like what i got :)  If you would like an indepth review on any of these, or if you have any requests then please leave me a little comment down below :)

Lots of love,

My adorable new shoes :)

Hello all!

As it was such a beautiful day on sunday, me & my other half decided to go on a nice walk around some gorgeous gardens & have a picnic. We had to walk through the town centre to get to the gardens, so on the way I decided to have a cheeky little look in primark. (My boyfriend HATES going shopping with me.)

I rushed straight upstairs to the shoe department as i knew exactly what i was looking for....these cuuuuute shoes. I think they are called boat shoes, but i can't clarify that.  I have seen a few beauty gurus have these shoes..i knew that i just HAD to have a pair.  Come on, could you resist these?

I absolutely love the colour combo on these and the little detailing is so nice :)
I always hear of the amazing bargains people get from primark, but i'm not always lucky enough to find much that I like. However, this time I saw so many things that I wanted to get. Ranging from pretty vintage style blouses to chinos.  I shall be going back to primark in a few weekends time to go on a proper little shop, so I  shall be preparing my wardrobe for all my new goodies by throwing out items that i do not want anymore.
Watch this space..there will no doubt be a big haul soon ;)

P.S..I know it was cheeky of me to have neglected my blog for so long. But my lame excuse is that I have been busy with work/travelling etc. :)

Have you managed to find any great items in Primark lately?

Lots of love,
