PRIMARK: PREMIUM PJS AT A PETITE PRICE

I just can’t get enough of Primark at the moment! I went through a phase of massively turning my nose up at it and everything it stands for. While I still disagree with many of their ethics and would rather not think about where their products come from, I have to admit that there have been so many amazing fashions in there recently.

My recent favourites include their sexy new bralettes and lingerie ranges with all the lace you could ever want. And yesterday when I was shopping I spotted even more beautiful lace and silky lovelies for the ever pleasing price Primark offers. This time it’s all premium looking PJs – and I have to admit that the quality isn’t totally awful either! Take a look at some of the beauties that could be yours – and all less than £12!!

BE SEXY FOR LESS WITH PRIMARK

You know I love Primark. I wish I didn’t and I know it’s corrupt and all the rest, but a broke girl still wants to look nice!! And there are even more reasons to look nice with some of Primark’s new lacy and satin offerings…

I popped into Primark at Marble Arch yesterday after a lovely bike ride around Hyde Park in the sunshine – it was rude not to as I was just a few feet away! And while I was purchasing a few new knitwear staples, I spotted so many beautiful bralets and PJs which are sure to make any girl feel feminine and lovely whether it’s to impress their man or themselves! Take a look at some of my favourites, available in most stores…

SIMPLY MER-MAZING GIFTS ALL MERMAID FANS NEED RIGHT NOW!

I know that mermaids and unicorns are EVERYWHERE at the moment and there are some super tacky bits out there… BUT some of us have loved unicorns and mermaids since way before they were cool and their new mainstream appeal only means that there’s even more amazing-ness out there for us to collect and covet. Totes like Ariel in her cave :).

You might have seen my post with some great Unicorn gifts, this time I’m all about the mermaid vibes, shells and holographic wonderousness. I’ve trawled the internet for my favourite mermaid themed goodies and gifts.

Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat?

GUESS WHO WENT TO PRIMARK AGAIN…?

So as you may already know from my post last week – Primark Last Night – I did a spot of shopping last week. WELL… On Sunday I returned to Primark on Oxford Street to return the dungarees I’d bought as sadly they are not made for tall people and not particularly comfortable in the downstairs region.

So there I am, innocently popping into Primark to return said dungarees, when I walked out with even more items – why does this always happen!?

So I bought a cute unicone Tshirt for £3, a maxi skirt for £5, some over-the-door heart hooks (below) for £2.50 and a Cactus print (below also) for £5. HAPPY DAYS – I had totaled LESS than the amount I spent on the dungarees anyway! WOOP!

BUT while I was there I also spotted LOTS of other lovely bits that were super tempting… As the kind, thoughtful soul I am I thought I would share them with you to fuel your browsing addictions…

My favourite (as always) was the Home Department. There are some seriously beautiful (and totally affordable) finds there and they’re all so on trend!pri home

 

  1. Cactus Print – £5 –  botanicals are so in this season too! This is now hanging in our lounge…
  2. 2 Pack Floral Round Storage Boxes – £4 – Love these colours and floral patterns, well done Primark!
  3. Pink Fiesta Paisley Cushion – £5 – cute cute cute!
  4. Over-door Heart hooks – £2.50 – these are actually super sturdy.
  5. Black Embroidered Pom Cushion – £7 – I looooove this one *insert heart eyes emoji here*.

I also spotted some beautiful lace items in the Lingerie and Nightwear sections… Perfect for a cheaper option if you’re going for the lace bralette and over sized shirt look!

Right – Black Longline Lace Bralette Set – £4
Soooooo pretty!!

They have also started to bring out their autumn and winter clothing, so there are lots of lush jumpers and wonderful coats appearing. I’m feeling too summery to get all excited about those at the moment, but go take a look in-store and let me know if you find any gems!

OBSESSED WITH: TADA & TOY

Ear cuffs and stacked earrings aren’t any thing new. We’ve seen them for years! But as a gal with only three piercings (only the ears people! One in each lobe and my left helix) it’s hard to achieve this trend with all the cheap and flimsy clip on earrings.

HOWEVER! Rejoice! Hallelujah and all other exclaimations of joy! Because there is now a totally achievable way to be a temporary bad-ass without needles!

TADA & TOY are not only incredible jewelry designers, but they’re also kings of the cuff. Featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Grazia and Elle, all their jewelry is simple, classic and beautiful. And while its top quality, it’s not going to break the bank. It’s just great, solid silver and gold at prices that won’t give you cold sweats.

I am a MASSIVE fan of the Star cuff:

Silver – £35  |  Gold – £38  |  Rose Gold – £38

Stars aren’t your thing? Try the Hexagon Cuff:

Silver – £40  |  Gold – £45  |  Rose Gold – £45

It’s not all cuffs! There’s the Basic Slider:

Take a look at just a few of my favourites from their extensive range of jewels below, and many more on their website.
