Poundland and primark haul – July 2013

I know lots of people are fans of Primark and Poundland hauls so I thought I’d share what I got when we did our bit of shopping when Azii and I had the afternoon together. It was sooo nice being able to go around Primark without having to worry about Ethan getting bored. I didn’t buy much but it was a lovely experience, stress free shopping, I’d forgotten what that was like! 
I absolutely love this little compact mirror. I have various mirrors floating around but this is, by far, by favourite ever. It was £1 from Primark and is soo pretty and so sturdy especially considering the price. Azii actually spotted this, yup, I was impressed too!
All of the clothes are really creased in these photos, sorry, they’d been left in a bag longer than normal. This pretty floral/rose print top is in a shiny, sheer fabric which is soo light for the summer. It’s longer at the back than the front and looks so nice with skinny jeans. It was a bargain at £4.

Another absolute bargain £5 primark dress. This one was a total no brainer – It’s a light cotton fabric in the front but the panel at the back, above the cinched waist, is lace. It’s a skater style and the light fabric makes it really nice and floaty. It’s a really comfortable dress and just, so so pretty. I’m wearing it today and I love it. 

I’ve actually already got one of these shirts. They’re sleeveless and really long, the fabric is very sheer so they wear nicely with skinny jeans and a vest underneath (or not depending on how you want to wear it) – I bought this simply because it was marked down to £2 and the first one I have is so comfortable and easy to wear. 

 We weren’t going to go to poundland as I didn’t Need any bargain cosmetics. But we were near by, and you know what it’s like! I’m so pleased we did go, the bargains I got were well worth it! Make-up wise, the one on the left is a bronzer and blush duo by Milani (which I Believe you can only get in the US?) and the one on the right is a single eyeshadow by Famous by Sue Moxley which is a lovely dark taupey colour and is a really nice shadow.

I’d been looking to get some of the strawberry cream dairy milk but whenever I went to a shop it wasn’t there so I was Very pleased to see it in poundland (SO tasty too!)

Lastly we got two dvds. I couldn’t believe that they were in there, there’s often some half decent films in poundland but I was surprised to see these two in there. We got ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning’ and ‘Halloween II’ (the remake version) – They may turn out to be rubbish films but for £1 each it’s hardly going to be a shame if they do!

Some proper bargains from both Poundland and Primark on this shopping trip!

    I know everyone has said it but my eye is on the Strawberries and cream chocolate! My favorite is dairy milk with oreo in it!

    And I love the little mirror compact, thats a steal for a pound! Reminds me of my nan and auntie when I was younger who had those compacts with those type of patterns on – very nostalgic!
