Birthday Haul 2015 – Primark

By Bambileigh

Hi hi! I hope you’re all having a great week so far – we’re having lovely weather in the UK, I’m getting excited for summer! I’m determined to tan my legs this year, I make a pint of milk look bronzed!
So we’re on to part two of my birthday haul (you can view the first part here), and I’m going to show you the bits I picked up in Primark! I could have spent a hefty amount in there, but I had my ‘smart’ head on and walked away from a lot of stuff! Which is a good job really as I still feel I spent way more than I should have last week… oh well.

The first thing I threw in the basket was the hair wrap. I already have two of these in black but my Mum keeps stealing them! I figured if I get a bright colourful one there’s no way she can try and claim that it’s hers – and for £1.30 you can’t go wrong. They really are brilliant, and it has elastic running around the edges so it kind of scoops your hair up so they work with any hair length!
I haven’t been to Primark for quite a while, so I had no idea how big their ‘PS Love’ range has gotten! I got very excited and wanted pretty much everything I saw but like I said, I had my savvy head on and went for some cute nail appliques (£1.00) and a spray that claims to make your nails dry faster (80p).
I’m not going to say that I hate the appliques as I removed it before it had even stuck to my nail properly… but they just sit way too proud from your nail! It would have pinged off within minutes and ruined my polish. The spray however is amazing! At first I thought it was kind of a placebo and I was just being fooled into thinking my nails have dried faster but it really works! The spray also claims to give them a glossy finish, which it does!


The next things I snaffled were two pairs of shoes; I picked up the brown pair (£6.00) because I don’t have any brown shoes to go with a lovely tan bag I have (I like my bag and shoes to match) and the black crochet pair (£5.00) reminded me of being a kid so I had to grab them too! They size up quite small and I had to get the next size up, so bare that in mind if you grab yourself some.

I’m never overly impressed with Primark’s ‘Home’ section, but I spotted this amazing pillow that went straight in the basket. It’s huge! And it was only £7.00! It’s quite hard to photograph, so you’re going to have to trust me when I say it’s lovely. It also has cute little ties on the back so you can take it off and wash it – I really want another one, but I can’t justify going all the way to Chelmsford just for a pillow… can I?


The last bits I bought were these little hair accessories – I think they’re called bun garlands? (both £2.00) I spotted these just as I was about to jump in the queue and I thought they’d be great to jazz up my boring ‘work hair’ in summer! I really love the blue and pink one!


I was determined that I wasn’t going to buy any clothing from Primark, but then I spied these amazing Lion King pyjama leggings (£8.00)! They’re the comfiest thing I’ve put on my butt for a long time. There was a matching top available but I thought that was going too far – I’d already bought some little Lion King earrings ready for my trip to the theater last Friday!


Have you ever seen such a restrained Primark haul?! I think I did so well not to buy pretty much everything I saw – I could have easily walked out of there with about 10 makeup bags. They had a lot of nifty stuff! I picked up a little pack of cute mismatch bracelets(£2.00) and some antibacterial wipes (60p) too, but I forgot to photograph them and I’m far too lazy to do it now! ;)

I’m about to write up the last part of my birthday haul and I’m SUPER excited for you guys to see what I bought so keep an eye out!
