Primark newbie haul

IMG_2195
Primark for the very first time!

I have never shopped in Primark before! Why not I hear you ask? Well, I guess it just always seemed like this huge shopping mega store with the most horrendous queues. Pretty scary when you have a toddler in tow, little patience and not a lot of time! But all the while I keep hearing positive comments about how cheap and fashionable the products are. I was itching to give it a go and yesterday was one of those rare days where I got the opportunity to do a bit of child free shopping. Bingo! I had some ideas in mind of what I wanted to look for before I went into the shop –

  • Summer hat for the little tyke
  • Little shorts for the little tyke
  • Zip lock bags or toiletry bags
  • New ruck sack for nursery
  • Trinket dish (rose gold preferably)
  • Throws
  • Pastel coloured sweatshirts (I’m loving the trend)
  • Sandals
  • Beach bag

Summer Hat

The cutest and smartest beach hat for the little chap

WIN! This smart little hat is from Primarks ‘Rebel’ range and is sized 2-4 years. It is a lovely brown colour and is finished with a black and white ribbon trim. Priced at £3.00.

Boys Shorts

These shorts can be dressed smart or casual

WIN! These little green utility shorts are perfect for my little boy. Everything is falling down on him at the moment, so the drawstring will come in handy. No more loose waistbands. They also have little pockets and zip detail. Priced at £6.00.

Zip Bags

Perfect for makeup, toiletries and first aid bits

WIN! These simple little bags will do just the job when we next go on holiday. I wanted something clear so I can instantly make out the contents. I used plastic shopping bags on our last trip. We can do better than that. Priced at £3.00 (I think… lost the tag).

Nursery ruck sack

FAIL! I couldn’t find any bags for the boys. Was I looking in wrong place?

Trinket dish

FAIL! A ceramic cactus dish was not what I had in mind.

Throws

FAIL! Not great for what I want. They were all soft and fleecy and well….. a bit girly. Perfect for snuggling on a winters day, but not for putting over a chair.

Pastel coloured sweatshirt

FAIL! I wasn’t that sure if the shape of the sweaters would suit me. They all seemed a bit short and I like a little bit of cover up on the tum tum area. If you know what I mean.

Sandals

FAIL! Too. Many. To. Choose. From. Next.

Beach bag

WIN! Oooooo look at this beauty! It only cost seven bleeding pounds! Who could tell?

Bonus item – Unicorn Pjs

Excuse the creased sheets…. oops

100% Unicorn

Does this make me officially fashionable? Or perhaps a bit of a big kid at heart? I have to say that I really, really liked the selection of nightwear on offer. I might just have to go back and get some more. Central Perk Pjs for me please.

So I guess I kind of enjoyed my little Primark shop. The queue wasnt too bad and I got served pretty quickly. I am not sure I have the patience or time to look at all of the clothes, but I was a big fan of the accessories and the home bits. What do you think to shopping in Primark? Is it yey or nay for you?

Have a lovely evening all, nighty night and ta ta xxx
