I bought these things in September but I’ve had someone check and, at least, the waterproofs are still available in some stores so I’ve listed it as October in the title because people search for these posts to see what’s available in a month and they’re still available this month.
It’s only a little haul, they didn’t have Exactly what I wanted but I really needed a variation of it so thankfully they had something I quite liked even though my favourite one was gone.
This is the item that I went in for – I wanted the green/pink floral one that I’d seen a few weeks previously but that wasn’t available anymore but thankfully this polka dot and floral one was still there. I don’t like it As much but it’s a necessity at the moment. I quite like that these are a ‘parka in a pocket’ – Mac style ones are fine but I much prefer the parka style and the fact that it folds in to the pocket rather than having a bag I’m just going to keep losing lol. It is quite big when folded up but I guess that’s what happens when it’s a different style. It’s just so easy to keep a waterproof in my bag rather than needing a big coat. This was £9.
I’ve wanted a cardigan for a while, just something lighter weight. I have heavier weight cardigans and lighter weight jumpers but you don’t always want a full jumper – I like just putting this on over a tshirt to keep a little warmer but not be too hot.
There was some beautiful knitwear available but this one was from one of their basic ranges, it was only £6 but I love the shape, the softness and the simplicity of it. That said, it’s not overly simplistic, little details like this mother of pearl style buttons just give it a beautiful extra dimension. I’ve worn this loads since I got it and, although it’s not been checked like the waterproof, I think these will probably still be available what with them being in one of their basic ranges – This came in loads of different colours, too.
The last item (yes it really is mini) was a spur of the moment item due to them placing things well at the tills. I saw this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dvd as I was queuing and just had to get it for Ethan for Christmas. It’s only got 3 episodes but it’s from the original tv series and he prefers watching the same episodes over again if he likes something anyway – For £3 a rather great buy to put aside for the festive times. I often check out their dvds as a lot of them aren’t very cheap but sometimes you see little gems like this one.
So that’s my, very, mini haul – I really want to go back to primark to see if they still have a fairisle cardigan I made myself not buy but it’s probably already gone and I have no idea when I next get to town. I do love a good primark shop, though, even if I have to be super well behaved like I was on this trip.
