Hey guys !
I have been wanting to go to Primark for a few weeks now. I have seen so many haul videos and blogposts recently and I really wanted to check out the new homeware stuff.
So when I woke up early on Sunday, I knew it was a sign- Primark wants you Fil- let’s go. So I did, and a few bags later here I am with all the goodies that tI have picked up. I do think that Primark did improve their quality, and the new pricing represents that. I always associated Primark more on the cheap side, really good for underwear and silly tops and pjs, but that has changed a lot I think. I mean there still are an odd few pieces of clothing that make you think – REALLY?, but overall I have seen a lot of pretty things this time.
Right, onto the things I have bought. Now I am sorry but since Primark doesn’t have a ‘proper’ website, no links will be available, but I will include the prices of the item.
First of all, since I am an adult and no longer a child, I really needed to invest into some proper pyjamas. By proper I mean flannel styled pjs without cartoon characters on them. So I picked up two sets, one for the festive season (so when we stay over at J’s mums for Christmas I don’t look like an oversized baby in my onesie, or Harry Potter fluffy set) and one to wear in colder months (straight away). They were £8 each and are so so soft that I cannot wait to buy some more. I am truly impressed with the quality Primark- well done.
I needed some more high waisted jeans since I have used my normal ones for work and I enjoy wearing high waisted ones better. I picked up a simple black one, for also £8. You cannot go wrong with these, and the blue ones have lasted me for a few months now. The only disadvantage of them are that the blacks seem to wash out pretty easily, but for £7-£8 pounds it really does worth it. I have been wearing Primark jeans for years now and I don’t see the point of buying jeans for £20 if you wear them all the time like I do, as they just get ruined really. Anyway enough about jeans, let’s move on.
It is autumn, and that means it is my favourite time of the year. I really wish I could move around the world and live in Autumn forever- YES I am that weird!. I love hot chocolate, the colourful leaves, cosy evenings, mulled wine, candles, the smell of rain etc. I, therefore, had to pick up a new scarf. I get my scarfs from Primark because they are cosy, soft and last the season. May not last me for years, but I would get bored of a scarf if I had to use it every year knowing I paid a fortune for it. This little beauty was only £4, but it is so soft, I mean SO SO soft I cannot wait to get Archie out for a walk and get wrapped up in this, put my wellies on and my jacket- PERFECT.
I also picked up this jumper, nothing special, but just a simple black ribbed turtle neck. I like wearing these, as you can just grab a pair of jeans, throw on your jumper and some boots or converse and it is rather casual. OR if you wear a lovely tartan skirt or a mustard coloured one with high heel booties and a belt, some jewellery, turtlenecks can relly be dressed up. Also, it was only £6.
I was so excited to check out the bedding section as I have seen so many lovely piccies on Instagram and Pinterest. I really wanted to make our bedroom cosier, and less orange – just a wee insight, orange used to be my favourite colour, therefore all my bedding is orange. So I really needed to get rid of them, as it just made the room look too ‘loud’- not the feeling you want before bed. So I picked up this double duvet set (£11) and a few cushions to match, as you cannot get enough cushions, right? the large cream square cushions were £6 for two, the rectangular grey ones were £4 each and the heart shaped one was £3. Bit of a bargain really, and they will match all the other neutral beddings that we have. I am very impressed and adding a few candles to the bedside tables absolutely transformed our room and made it look more spacious and tidy. LOVE it.
This is everything I got, I am truly impressed and thinking about it, I really did not spend an awful lot.
Until next time,
