Primark Haul March 2013

I've done a little bit of shopping in Primark recently and thought I'd share with you a little post showing what I picked up.

I've not been into Primark for ages to properly look around, but after seeing a few recent Primark Hauls on youtube, I decided it was time to go and have a goosey.

I saw every one of these items on various youtube videos so went in with specific intentions on what I wanted to find.

First off I picked up these tshirts which I will definitely be going back to purchase more of. They are simple, baggy tshirts with the roll up sleeve detail. Very similar to those being sold in Topshop for around £12, but these babies were only £3.50 each. I bought one in black and one in white. I got one in a size 8 and one in a size 10 because I wasn't too sure which would fit better and I didn't have time to try anything on (dinner hour shopping ;)) They both fit nicely, however, when I go back I'm going to pick up a couple more size 10s as they are a little bit slouchier. They are also available in a bright blue and coral colour in my store. I wish they did grey...

Next I found this lace crop top which I plan on wearing with either my American Apparel disco pants or Easy Jeans. I haven't tried it together yet, but I don't want to be showing too much muffin and this top is relatively short. The nice thing about it is that it is fully lace on the back, but has a modesty layer in the front so your boobies aren't out all over the place. Again, similar tops being sold in Topshop for around £15, this one cost £4. I picked up a size 8 which fits nicely around the waist. It is also available in cream.

I then bagged these little polkadot beauties. They seemed to be in an odd section, with the tshirts and basic tops, next to some socks. I would've thought they would either be with the holiday or pyjama sections, but have a good look around your store because they have some really nice prints. I bought these for either hot summer days, holiday or lounging around the house in and I think they're awesome. They cost £4 which I thought was a bit pricey, but since they didn't have any other of the nice prints in my size and I didn't have the issue of choosing between designs, I thought I'd treat myself to a pair. I'd say they're true to size.

Next for some essentials.
I grabbed myself some more 100 Denier Opaque tights because they're a must have. They cost £2.50 per pair and last for ages. 

I also picked up a couple of packs of socks. I needed some black ones for work...but all of my black socks seem to go missing (I'm looking at you, Mum!) so I needed to be able to distinguish who's socks are who's when they come out of the washing machine. I saw these 5 packs for £2.50 each which have little frills and bows on so I'll know if my mum or dad have been nicking them from now on!!

A couple of random buys were these two hair accessory packs. I picked up a black hair turban for when I get out of the shower and don't fancy walking round with a massive towel on my head. It was £1.50 and you just put it over your hair, twist and secure the elastic loop around the awful dimante at the nape of your neck. 
I also grabbed a pack of hair clips at the till for £1 because I use these daily when blow drying/straightening my hair or applying makeup. They always seem to be eaten up by my bed monster or something because I had about twelve and now I have about 2.
For a pound you can't go wrong really. Don't wear them out of the house though because that's just not cool. ;)

Thennnnn, on my second trip back to Primark I got my hands on these beauties. I'd seen the clutch version on my previous shopping trip but wasn't all that enthused with it, but saw these two makeup bags near the tills and grabbed them. At £4 and £3 I thought I'd treat myself to a new set of makeup bags because they've got skulls on and are dead cool :)

As I mentioned, they also have a clutch version and also a couple of travel bags in this print also, but they looked a bit meh to me.

Loook at his little skully head!

And that's it! Hope you liked what I got. Have any of you done a Primark Haul recently? Any more goodies in there that I've missed?
