Primark Mini Haul – Spring Accessories

Primark Spring Haul

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Primark. It’s not somewhere I find myself shopping a lot – the queues are annoying, I don’t think the clothes fit well and generally the fitting rooms are a disaster so trying anything on is a no-no. However there are things that I do like about it, for cheap basics like face clothes, hair bobbles and pyjamas you really can’t beat it.

I visited the other day and managed to catch a quiet time (score!), I took the opportunity to stock up on a few bits and pieces from their accessory collections – as well as some face cloths which I haven’t pictured – they really are just white face cloths! The spring travel items have just arrived and as someone who loves anything related to storage and organisation, they look great. I picked up a large nautical style make up or toiletry bag for just £3.00, a cute new cat-eared phone case for just £1.00 and an iPhone cable for just £2.50 – I don’t know how good this will be, but I wanted one to keep in the car and this is waaaayyy cheaper than official Apple ones and seems sturdier than some I have seen. I also chose some cute bracelets and essential hair bobbles. All in all not a bad little haul for just over £10!

Have you been to Primark lately?

H&M Spring Homeware

Sales are on the out and new stock is arriving in all the high street stores and H&M is no exception. I was browsing on their site today and found myself lusting over the new homeware drop. It’s full of neutral, textured pieces with a real luxe feel for a budget price point and let’s face it, who doesn’t love the sound of that!

HM Home

I’ve long been a fan of H&M’s storage options, this textured ceramic pot is fantastic and would look great on a dressing table, mantle piece or shelf. Aside from being pretty it will also be great for keeping bits and pieces tidy. Having just finished my fireplace I’m looking for some decorate bits to add to it, this bottle shaped vase is perfect and at only £6.99 it’s a total bargain. I’ve had my eye on a throw for a while, especially as the weather has become crazy cold, this one has a lovely texture and I love the colour too. At £29.99 it’s the priciest of my picks, but still isn’t breaking the bank.
