My January Primark Haul

So this week seems to be a week of hauls on my blog…

Last week I was in Primark and picked up a few bargains. I decided to film a video about it as haven’t done anything for YouTube in a while. I also took pictures as some of you may not want to listen to me talk. So without further ado, my newest Primark haul

First of a bought two necklaces 

(I had no idea how hard it is to take pictures of necklaces before this)

Both of them were £1.50 and they are nice to add small details to an outfit.

Next I got this rose gold clutch

It was only £1 and small enough to be used as a purse but large enough to be a bag by itself. Right now I keep all my loyalty cards in it

I also got a hat because when it started to snow, I realised that I don’t own any. 

It was only £1 so if I don’t end up needing it, it won’t be too be a deal.

I also bought I long sleeve, dotty top.  

It was only £2 and it will look cute with a skirt in the spring.

I also got some Jumpers from the men’s section. 

There was lots on sale and it was a miracle that I managed to stop myself with three. 

The first two jumpers were £3 and the last one was £2. I already wore it in a post here

Because I was in a buying mood, I also got some essentials.

First of I got some "seamless footies". They were £1.30 and are good for shoes you can’t really wear socks with – like my brogues.

After hearing a lot about these, I got a pair of fleece lined tights.

These were £3.50 and they are so warm and soft – just a joy to wear.  

Next I got a hair doughnut 

It was only 80p and as you probably know, I'm pretty late to trends and this is my first one.

And finally, I got two makeup brushes 

I got a blusher brush for £1.50 and an eyeshadow brush for £1. They were supposed to be a “just-in-the-meantime” sort of thing but I think they are pretty good. They’re very soft and put on enough product. There has been no shedding and the blusher brush is large enough for it to blend out for a natural look.

So that’s my Primark haul. There was a lot of bargains, and considering that I only spent £22.30 overall, I don’t feel bad about buying all that stuff.

Today I'm listening to:

I was thinking about getting a new camera lens and was wondering what other bloggers use? What do you reckon is the best one to get for the type of posts I do?


  1. I so wish we had Primark in the US. About the closest thing I can think of is Forever 21...? They have cheap jewelry and things often.

    You should do a post on your jumper collection! I've tried hard this winter to keep my own in check...

  2. Great buys!
    Want to follow each other on bloglovin'? Let me know :)

  3. Those tights look sooo cosy, why do I not have them!?

    The Velvet Black // UK Style & Beauty Blog

    1. They are amazing - I wore them in the snow and was still really warm

  4. That's quite a haul! Love the bobble hat. What camera do you have? I bought my 35mm lens for my Canon 650d and I've never looked back...

    1. I have a Sony a100 so there isn't many lenses out there for it.

  5. I watched the whole video :) It is so lovely and such a pleasure to watch it. I cannot wait to see your future videos!

  6. Their seamless footies are the best! I always wear them with low-cut shoes and even under tights when it's cold.

After we went swimming the other day, I just let my hair dry naturally. This produced what has been dubbed as my “triangle hair”. My hair usually curls tighter when I leave it, but I’ve been straightening it a lot more often and it seems to have melted my hair or something because the last couple of times it was just straight frizz. The lighting is terrible in all these pictures so if I look a little red that’s why. The jumper I'm wearing is from the men’s section. I find that guy’s jumpers are a lot warmer and the neck-line is so high, you don’t need a scarf. In Primark specifically, the men’s jumpers seem to be less itchy and wash a lot better as they don’t shrink as badly. The styles are usually very similar to the woman’s and they seem to be in more muted colours which is something I particularly like.      I'm wearing: Jumper from Primark (they are  usually  £6 but I managed to get mine at the start of summer for £3.)

Writers block

So I haven’t posted in the last couple of weeks. I had everything ready for posting back however many Thursdays ago it was that I was supposed to post this except for the text. I had no idea what to write for it. I am the first to admit that I'm not very good at writing for this anyway. I’ve never been very good with non-fiction writing. It doesn’t come very easily to me and nothing interesting enough to write about ever happens to me. But ever since people I know in real life started reading this, I feel as though I should be better at this; and my technique for things I don’t think I'm very good at yet, put them off until last minute. One thing with not blogging as frequently as I promised is that even though I have had my hair short for over a month but I haven’t put any pictures up on here. I really like it; I'm even considering cutting it even shorter. I also want to dye it. I’ve never dyed all my hair a different colour; I had it dip-dyed r

M7974 at Ardoch Roman Fort

Last Autumn, I got a swatch of this lovely Atelier Brunette Viscose Crepe . At the time I was looking for a lining to a jacket (that I’m still working on) but it didn’t quite fit the bill. I absolutely loved the fabric though, so I kept the swatch. I had put off getting more to make a full garment because I didn’t trust myself to make something nice enough from it. At the time, I probably only sewed once a week for about 3 hours and the things I made were full of mistakes and dumb fabric choices. I’m going to stick some of these up on my blog at some point but even though I was proud of the fact I could make then, I didn’t really enjoy wearing the clothes enough to justify investing in nice fabric. Another issue was that I couldn’t decide on what to make from the fabric. I was jumping between a blouse or a wrap dress but none of my ideas felt perfect. I really liked the M7974 but I had it in my head that I only wanted to make view C in a light weight linen like fabric and
