Primark and MUA haul

Well, I did a little bit of shopping the other day. Money isn’t totally sorted but it’s on its way towards being sorted so I thought a little bit of Primark bargain hunting and a few of the, new, MUA nail polishes were a good way to celebrate.
I got a beautiful floral purse – I do have lots of purses but I like purses and this one has quite a Cath Kidston-esque feel to it and it was only £4.I also got some really pretty pumps in white with a pink pattern on it which looks like cherry blossoms, they were also £4.

Two totally random purchases were some spin pins for £1 and a hair turban for £1.50. My hair is too short to need either of these things but there’s a good chance I’ll be letting it grow a bit longer and these are things I will want once it is a better length and we all know that things come and go with primark and I don’t want to have to end up paying full price to get branded versions of either of these things!I almost couldn’t get the four little rings that I got. There was about three hangers for them and every single one on there was a medium or a large but I searched and I searched and I was on to the last one or two they had and, finally, I found a small! They were only £1.50 and, as you’ll see in the closeups below, they’re so pretty!

Perfect spring-time pumps.



This is how the rings look worn all at the same time, but I don’t think I’ll be likely to wear them this way.


I really like the way that these two look together, especially as the one with the little ‘gem’ in it has a pinky sheen to it so it matches the rose nicely. Very ‘vintage’ feeling, pretty and girly.
I also picked up these shorts. They’re very short, and a lovely thin fabric in this gorgeous floral design. I got them in a size 12, even though I’m normally an 8/10, because they didn’t have my size and I could tell they were the sort of style where I could get away with them being a bit big. These will be fantastic if we actually get some of that warm weather that I sometimes hear about!
Lastly I got this pretty pretty dress! I absolutely love it, it’s such a basic, simple style, in a thin fabric but I just love the floral pattern and the fit of it. It, too, is a size 12 and I expected to need to wear a belt to pull it in at the waist but, thanks to the style, it actually goes in a little anyway. It’s much more fitted if I pull it tighter, like a smaller size would be, but I’m not too fussed about it being super fitted so I’m more than happy with it in this size.It was a super, super bargain at £5!

 And here are the three MUA nail polishes I got; moody mink, bold blue and pistachio icecream.These polishes are super cheap at £1 and are in the new bottles which have a new brush. I have tried out bold blue and it was a lot thinner than I expected so it took 3 coats. It’s a lovely shade, though, and for £1 you can’t expect the thickest formula ever, especially with a colour like this.

I’m looking forward to trying the other two, too.
Whilst I was in boots, I swatched a few products which I may well be going back to buy with the last of my Boots advantage card points. So there may be another little haul coming up, but I won’t be spending money for this one, just totally depleting my points balance. But the products swatched sooo nicely and stayed soo well that I just can’t get them out of my mind – so watch this space!

      You'd think so, wouldn't you, but I guess lots of bargains added up together still makes a bit of a bigger total hehe

      It's just too easy to spend money in there! xx

      I've not worn them yet, other than to check they fit. I may have to decide to wear a dress and pumps tomorrow unless it's pouring with rain, just so I can wear them. They're just soo pretty 😀 xx

    I love the new MUA nail polish shades, growing quite a collection already! The bargain price is just too hard to resist.

      This is exactly what I keep telling myself! There's just no reason not too with them being the price that they are 🙂

      And I shall definitely have to get it on my nails sharpish! xx
