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?

Bleach London Bruised Violet Review

Whenever I get my hair done I get a little bit of a colour through it. Normally a little pink or lilac. However this normally fades before I need my highlights re-done. I decided to liven up the blonde with one of the Bleach London temporary hair dyes I had read so much about.

Review: Macadamia Oil Extract Hair Treatment

Macadamia

I picked up this Macadamia hair mask while in Poundland, though I’ve also seen items from the range in Savers and other budget stores. For a budget product the packaging is really quite appealing, a nice black tub with printed outer. As I have bleached hair I’m always looking for treatments to add moisture and improve the condition, and at just £1 I thought I’d give this a try.

The mask is a translucent white, relatively thick formula with no real scent. I slathered this on my hair whilst in the bath and left on for around 20 minutes. After rinsing my hair did feel smooth and blow dried nicely, but I wasn’t overwhelmed. I have since used this product in the shower and again it smoothed my hair and left it in good condition.

I guess at the price I really can’t complain. It is by no means an awful treatment and didn’t have any adverse effects on my hair but it probably isn’t something I’d buy again. It didn’t feel very special or greatly improve the condition of my hair and I actually like a little fragrance in my hair products which is something this was lacking.

Have you tried this mask or anything from the Macadamia collection? What is your favourite hair mask?
