Shopping| Mini Primark Haul

I had high hopes for the Primark in Westfield Stratford City when I ventured into East London last Saturday, but instead I was completely overwhelmed by a) the amount of people that were there and b) the size of the damn place! It was way too big and way too crowded for my liking. It stressed me out and I left empty handed. However, I wandered into my local Primark in Kent yesterday and lo and behold, I left with a bagful of goodies. It goes to show that bigger doesn't always mean better (sometimes!)
Since I'm still trying to lose a few kilos, I stayed away from the clothing section - despite being tempted by a few summer dresses - and got stuck in with the shoes and bags.

£16

Of course I needed another pair of black sandals! From the gold buckle detail, to the chunky heel; these sandals are so me it's unbelievable. They go with absolutely everything I own and are uber comfortable, how could anyone say no? Lol.

£6

Bumbags aka pouches are back! As a 90s child, I had a colourful collection and boy oh boy am I happy they're making a comeback. I'm not sure how I'm going to inject this into my wardrobe yet but I'm thinking a plain midi dress and trainers would be the perfect pairing.

£6

This bag has become somewhat famous within blogoshere as it's able to fit most DSLR cameras. I've been on the hunt for a stylish camera bag so I immediately knew this would be it.  Luckily I managed to nab the last one in my branch. It fits my canon 1100D perfectly.

£6
I simply loved this bag when I spotted it and it's surprisingly very spacious. I love the two compartments and rocked it last night at the Bloggers Love event, putting my purse, keys, note book and pen in one section and my make-up and brushes in the other. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

£6

Ok, So I've got the black mock suede with the patent back version of these heels, the black and red patent version, the white with the geometric pattern and now these ones! I couldn't help myself! In my defence, they were the only ones there, they happened to be my size and on sale. It would've been silly to leave them behind right? Lol! 
I do think these are the type of sandals to have in different colours because they are so effortlessly chic and can be worn to dress up everything, so technically they're a good investment buy!

Have you been to Primark lately? What did you buy?

    1. I know the feeling. It's best to find a smallish one and go super early. It's less intimidating that way. I definitely don't recommend any of the magastores! xx

    1. Sorry for the late response! Yes the video quality is impressive depending on what you want it for. It's definitely a great starter camera!

  3. Good haul! I like the sandals particularly, they'll go with anything. I like the beauty section of Primark - they do a great argan oil hair conditioning treatment which smells of mangoes and is only £4 for a big tub.
