Not another haul...

I know my last post was a haul, but that was more a beauty haul, where this is more accessories and clothes! I've been feeling a bit crappy recently, which is never good for my bank balance as I turn to retail therapy! My mum and I went out for the day yesterday and being a wonderful daughter I treated her to lunch. I popped into Primark and picked up so bargains and then just got a little something from River Island. So here is just a little snap of what I've picked up.




Wash/Make up bag £4      //      Some pretty socks £3      //      Super soft Tights £3      //       Cotton pads £1

So first up is just some boring essentials! I fell in love with these socks and thought they would look pretty in summer, when it's warm enough to have bare legs, just under some ankle boots. Tights because Primark tights are the best and all tights rip and ladder no matter if you spend £3 or £13! I knew Primark did beauty products, but I didn't really think they would be up to much so I didn't bother picking any up, but I did spot these babies which are 160 cotton pads for a quid! Yes, £1 for 160 cotton pads!! I just couldn't resist.


Wash/Make up bag £4
Officially on the label, this is described as a wash bag, but for all my essentials, it would be too small; however it is actually quite spacious inside so it would be perfect as a make up bag! I have the worlds prettiest make up bag, but it's now faded and falling apart, so I bit the bullet and bought a new one and I think it is just the cutest! And a bargain. 


Pack of belts £2     //     Top £2

£2 for 2 belts! Enough said! An absolute bargain and they are so cute as well, so I can't wait to wear them. I really love thin belts, just to define my waist when wearing baggy tops or else just to decorate a plain skater skirt. I also spotted this top and it said on the label it was a £5 and I thought another bargain; then I got to the till and it was a mere £2! It's a long, over sized baggy tee. However, it is quite see through, so a top under neath is really needed. It's so versatile, whether over disco pants or tucked into leather shorts. 

Bag £12
I've needed a new bag for ages now and really have been looking everywhere to see what was about. I couldn't really see any I liked; either online or in stores, until I stopped this gem for only £12. I don't know how long it will last, as Primark bags aren't the best quality; but this looks so much more expensive than £12 and looks quite Zara-esque, but at a quarter of the price!

£17 - Riverisland
Since, I bought a new bag, I thought I should just go the whole hog and treat myself to a new purse! I think really highly of River Island purses and they last for ages. This purse has room for all my cards and fits notes properly as well as two zip parts for coins. It's also the perfect coral/pink colour for Summer. I had my eye on the black one, but they never got it in the store near me and I didn't want to spend money on delivery so I picked up this version instead!


So that's everything! I've spent quite a bit in the last few days, so I don't think there will be any more hauls for a while. I am thinking about doing a "What's in my bag" post with my new bag and purse?

Anything you love or hate? Do you like haul posts?

  13. I love River Island purses too, its a really random thing to rate a shop for but I honestly think River Island do some of the best....although I have to admit there is a Vivienne Westwood purse I am so longing for....but at £115 I may have to wait some time :(
