Primark Buys April 2014

In my Birthday presents post I mentioned that I was lucky enough to receive quite a few Primark vouchers, well I've been having a lot of fun putting a dent in those! This is what I've used them on so far.


I've been in desperate need for new PJs for a while now so went a little crazy in that department, well, maybe not crazy but I bought a few sets. I decided to size up on a few pairs as I find the sizes to be quite awkward, this was a mistake as some of them are massive, but they're comfy.

The first set of PJs cost me £8, the vest is BRIGHT pink and the bottoms have cute hearts on them. The glitter bottoms cost £8 and combined with the floral sweater for £6 make the perfect lounge-wear/PJ set. The unicorn PJs are just amazing, £3 for the top and £5 for the bottoms. Complete bargain.


Another thing I've been desperate for is underwear. I'm married now so tend to go for comfort over sexiness so opted for five pairs of cute but comfortable knickers. The two floral pairs and the plain black pair cost £1.70 each, the cat pair cost £1 and the My Little Pony pair cost £2.50.


I have an awkward shape which means that jeans never fit me properly, the brown belt is perfect for jeans and cost just £2. The bow belt will be perfect with my new dress that I am wearing to a Wedding evening tomorrow, this cost £2.50.


You can never have too much jewellery right? This necklace is so pretty and has received compliments every time I have worn it so far, it cost just £3. I love midi rings on other people but not necessarily me, I am determined to start loving them on me too so picked up these packs to try and work them, they cost £1.50 each.


This first pair of shoes are to wear to the Wedding tomorrow night with the belt above (and a dress, of course!), they cost £12 and feel so comfortable, which is a must for me as I hate wearing heels. I couldn't resist these glitter jelly shoes despite my friends thinking they were ugly, I love them! They cost £6 which is a bargain in comparison to New Look who are selling pretty much the exact same pair for £14.99.


I'm useless with false nails but will give these a go for £1 a pack. I have a set of cat ones from Primark that a friend bought me, I'm hoping to try them tomorrow so will let you know how that goes, if it goes!


This Cath Kidston-esque towel will go lovely in my kitchen next to my floral tea towels and was a steal at £3, I saw it on Victoria's blog and made a beeline for the home wear section to hunt it down.


This hand sanitiser was one of those Primark buys that you pick up while queueing, it cost £1 and smells nice. The swimming costume cost £10 and it isn't actually as bad as I thought, I hate my body so thought that this would look awful but the shape wear really does tuck in some of my bulges.  


How cute is this bag? It cost £9 and I plan on making it into my new camera bag by purchasing an insert to sit inside it.


This £8 daisy dress is super cute but unfortunately had to be returned as its a little snug, they didn't have the next size up so I couldn't exchange it. I've been wanting to try patterned jeans for a while now so decided to purchase these to try on at home, the verdict? I love them! These cost £13.
  

I picked up these two tops as I wanted something to wear with my patterned jeans (above). The first one is very pretty and a great price at £10 considering that there is a necklace attached. It will be returned though unfortunately as it is an awful fit, it clings to everything. Yuck. The second top has just excited me a little, I've just checked the receipt to type up this post and realised that it went through the till at £1! I can't remember how much it cost but it was certainly more than £1. You can't see it properly on the photo but it has quilted detail and is actually really pretty. 

Have you had a Primark spree recently? What is your favourite thing from my haul?

    1. It was an awesome splurge, it made me super happy :)
      I am hoping to get a lot of wear out of the jeans in the Spring, along with the jelly shoes.

    1. They didn't have it in mint green in Cardiff, I'm actually quite glad they didn't as I wouldn't have been able to pick my favourite if they did haha! x

  6. I'm trying to avoid Primark at the moment - their pyjama bottoms are my weakness and I really do not need any more!

  7. I love your haul! You're making me want to go there! I now NEED floral and unicorn pjs, it sounds odd, but I love your pants (haha), love the daisy dress (such a shame they didn't have the next size, same thing happened to me with the Debenhams Daisy dress so I'm still looking too), love the towel too, I get floral ones from Home Bargains. I had a swimming costume clear out recently so need to buy a new one to take kids swimming again. I may well be putting this off! Gulp! The shapewear one looks great! x

    1. haha, I love that you love my pants! I bought the next size up after but it still didn't fit right on me so that will also be going back, it obviously isn't meant to be :(
      The costume is honestly great, it doesn't hide my big tummy but it definitely tucks it in a little. x
