Primark Spree!

So today I took a daring (yes daring!) visit to Primark! I was dreading it as its a Saturday, and my judgement was correct - it was heaving! The ques to the fitting room were one thing, the ques to the till were another. People kept pushing into me and to be quite honest with you I lost my patience! Not forgetting to mention that one of the main escalators was broken so everybody had to que for a lift or use the stairs. I have to say I will not be going to Primark on a Saturday again!

Saying all that I did still manage to shop however! I didn't find much I liked in the clothes department, but being primark I still left the till having spent more than I expected. This is what I brought;

Primark is the only place I buy tights from, I always buy some every time I go. They are really cheap. £3 for the pack of three, or £2 for one pair (with a higher denier.) I always buy a size Large just because I'm quite tall and there is nothing worse than the crotch of your tights falling right down by your ankles!

I brought some pairs of socks like these a couple of weeks ago from Topshop, obviously they were a bit more expensive than these though. I think the frill on them is so cute. Priced at £1.50 a pair... Bargain!

I had seen this wall art in Primark before Christmas, but couldn't justify buying it. But just to my luck its now reduced to just £2 from £10! Steal! All I need to do is find somewhere to put it in my room now.

I'm still a big fan of collar tips this season. I have 3 already, but there is no harm in adding 1 more to my collection. £1.50 can glam up any shirt!

More tights! I had a pair of these before but warning they are so thin and snag quite easily. They are £2.50, and I think look great to jazz up a dress during the day.

Your probably thinking what a random selection of things to buy... But I totally agree, even the man at the till said to me "buying a bikini and tights all at once?!" I'm not going on holiday till August (going to Marrakech and Morocco) but I saw these bikinis and thought they were totally cute, and I know for a fact they won't be there when I go holiday shopping so thought I would be prepared. Thinking I can mix and match the bottoms with the aztec print bandeau. The set was £10.00, and the aztec bandeau was £4.00.

As always I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions.
Thank you for reading.
