I popped into Primark last week to exchange something for my boyfriend, and it turned out to be an expensive errand! I did need to pick up a pair of leggings (£3 and the slate colour I've been looking for) and a scarf and fascinator for my cruise, but didn't think I'd find them in Primani! I also picked up a pair of indigo skinny jeans for £8. Some of my best fitting jeans are from Primark and I have some from Miss Sixty which cost a fortune but look rubbish on. I also grabbed some 80 denier body shaping tights for £3 when I'd already paid £6 in M&S for a similar pair.
Now, onto the accessories...
This pearl flower ring matches a pretty necklace I got from Primark about two months ago. The diamonds will probably fall out within days, but it was only £2 and is nice a blingin' for Miami!
Now, how amazing is this flower fascinator for only £2?! There's a hair clip attached at the back, as well as a pin so you can wear it as a brooch. I love it!
I love Blair Waldorf, and so, I love my hair bands! Again this one was only £2 and I'd even wear it to work.
Again, this purple hair band was only £2 and will match the purple dress I plan to wear on the formal night of the cruise.
This is more in line with the fascinator I had my eye on at River Island, but only £3 instead of £15. It does stand out quite a bit so I'll only wear it on very formal occasions.
I didn't know Primark had a line in false eyelashes, and they had some really fancy ones, but I passed them over as the quality didn't look great. These look pretty natural and I'll give them a whirl on my cruise and let you know how I got on/take photos. They cost £1.50, which is good for me as I only ever get one wearing out of falsies and Eyelure's are a bit pricey, if great quality.
And finally, my impulse impulse buy that I grabbed at the counter while I was paying for all the other stuff...Coco Cola Vanilla Lip Smacker! It actually tastes just like it (from what I remember Coke Vanilla to be like...come back!) and it very creamy. It was £1.50 though, when I'd only expected it to be about 50p...there was no price on the tub ¬_¬ But hey, by that point I'd been spoilt by the other bargain basement prices!
I noticed some really pretty embellished jumpers and a couple of dresses caught my eye, but I am restricting my clothes purchases until I shift some chub :)
