Primark haul!

With my illness I don't get out much. No, really! Shopping is a bit of a nightmare as looking at clothes whilst in a wheelchair is not exactly ideal. Plus it wipes me out so much that it isn't much fun. Long gone are the days of me disappearing for hours on end whilst I browsed the shops & returned laden with bags.

However I really wanted a few bits, specifically some new PJ's & a few slogan T-shirts to throw on with jeans, so where better to go for cheap & cheerful but Primark. It is the fashion lovers/bloggers/generally everyone's number 1 place for a bargain. Everything is mega cheap & if, for some bizarre reason, you have never heard of it then I really don't know what to say!! Get yourself there. Right now.

Usually my problem is that I haven't bought stuff for ages so I will go & go crazy. I end up looking everywhere but by the time I am not even a quarter of the way through I start feeling like I will pass out. Whilst a pile of items gets higher & higher on my knee as I have nowhere else to put them.

But this time I had a plan. And I stuck to it! My mum came with & I was very good at just looking at the things I had planned to look at. It is impossible to go into a Primark without buying stuff but I was sensible for once. Sort of. One of my bags ripped under the sheer weight of stuff in it so perhaps I wasn't that sensible!

First stop was the slogan T-shirts. Which they have hundreds of! I could have bought loads more than I did but I settled on a few.  I wanted them slightly oversized so I sized up on most of them. This is my favourite & it was £4. I can just picture 'the girl with her hands in the air who looks like she's saying Talk to the Hand' emoji saying it..

I also got this one for £6. Everyone knows I love blue but I liked the folded sleeves & well, how could I resist!

I wanted a plain one that I can dress down or dress up with a blazer so I settled on the brightest I could find. I love this shade of pink & it was only £4.

I also found a few on the sale rack for £3. The one is cute & the back is cut away so it's quite nice.


I picked this up to go over a bikini on holiday & it was in the sale for £2.

Aplogies for everything being creased on the pictures.. everything is crammed into the bags & I took the photos once I got home. Ain't nobody got time to iron newly bought shopping!!

I also wanted some denim shorts so as they were only £5 I got 3 pairs. Because that's so logical. And we get such lovely weather here in the UK haha. I did actually need some as the ones I already have are not the best. I can wear them with the ice cream vest!!

Next was to the PJ's & Primark have such a good range. By this time I was starting to flag a bit so I didn't look at them all. I picked up a couple of sets with long bottoms & T-shirt style tops. They were about £10 each.

I passed the accessories at some point so I grabbed a pair of sunglasses for the grand total of £1 & a case for £1.50.

I also got an accessory hanger which I wanted for my numerous scarves. It said £2 but when I checked the receipt it went through at 90p.

I grabbed a glittery thermal mug which was £3 & I love it (glitter!) but unfortunately the first time it was washed, water leaked in between the mug & the casing. Never mind.

I also wanted some new mugs that I had been eyeing up online so got 6 of them. However one of them cracked the first time we used it whilst hot water was in it so I would not recommend them. They did look nice though!

All in all a decent haul & I was quite impressed that I stuck to the plan. I didn't even go in the changing rooms which is a first for me in Primark!

I saw a lovely little pastel blue bag which I regret not getting now. And I didn't even get any of the flamingo or pineapple themed stuff that they have in at the moment. Must be something wrong with me!

Would love to hear what people have been buying there recently & what you think of my haul.

  1. Lovely stuff! :)
    Shopping kills me (walking, the weight of clothes, changuing room,...). Time to time I buy things for me, gifts for birthdays or presents for my niece and nephew and I feel happy and very proud of me!
    PS Who of us can iron anyway?! haha XO

    1. It's such a chore these days isn't it.. And exactly about ironing!!!
