March 2012 buys – New Look & Primark

I feel like I haven’t posted a haul for so long, which is a good thing as I need to cut down on my spending! I have picked up a few bits throughout the month, essentials only though! I haven’t been very far so have only been shopping in New Look and Primark (as usual).

I did forget to take photos when I bought my things so apologies if some of it looks a little grubby!

New Look

Slouchy Chain Moccasin £19.99. I bought these for work, I like to wear comfy flats as I work 8:30 – 5:30 and just find the day way too long to be wearing heels! I’ve been wearing these for about a week, I still have plasters on my heels at the moment as they are a little uncomfortable there. They are slowly breaking in though and will be really comfy soon.

High Waisted Supersoft Skinny Jeans £22.99. I bought these to wear when I went to watch the rugby. I have pink jeans, beige jeans, moron jeans, etc but no plain blue jeans! I wanted to wear my rugby shirt and think that blue jeans look better with the iconic Welsh jersey! These jeans are super comfortable and wash well, I’ve been practically living in them since buying them.


Floral Sunglasses £2.00. These were an impulse purchase as I was totally unprepared for the sun when I went shopping Saturday. I couldn’t see a thing walking around town so decided to pick up these bargains to help me see a little better!

Beige blazer £20.00. I went into Primark looking for one of the famous pastel blazers, I wanted either pink or mint green, unfortunately my store didn’t have any in 🙁 I saw this and decided it was a much better option as the colour is a lot more versatile. It was left in my shopping bag in Spencer’s car all weekend so is quite crumpled!

Twin pack of Cotton Wool pads £1.00. Not really a lot to say about these. One of those things that fall in my basket while waiting at the checkout on almost every visit.

Pink Jersey Pumps £6.00. These are so cute and so comfortable, I couldn’t leave them there for the price. I’ve already worn them and managed to get them filthy which I didn’t realise until I uploaded the photo! I’m not sure how long they’ll last but for £6 who cares?!

Canvas shopping bag £1.50. Since the VAT has been introduced on carrier bags on Wales I seem to buy a canvas bag when ever I go into Primark. I decide that I don’t want to pay 5p for a throw away paper bag so instead pay £1.50 on another canvas bag! This one is cute though.
What have you been buying lately? Have you managed to get hold of a Primark pastel blazer?

      Thanks Caroline 🙂 I can't wait till I've worn them in properly so they no longer give me blisters! x

    I bought those Primark shoes, they're awesome. But I have got mine a little dirty too. I love that Primark blazer as well, definitely something you can wear with a lot more outfits. I'll be looking out for that next time.

      They are the most comfy shoes ever, I feel like I'm wearing slippers!
      I do like my blazer, even though it creases really easy and is a bitch to iron – I can forgive it! x

    I have those New Look shoes but in patent, they lasted for months and I wore them nearly every day!
    See you tomorrow 🙂 x

      Hopefully these will last just as long then, I feel as if I'm forever buying black flats for work because they all fall apart! x

      Thanks Frances 🙂 Its nice just to have a blue pair of jeans that I can wear with everything x

    you got some lovely things I've been wearing highwaistedskinnys recently and they are amazing!" x

      My belly doesn't appreciate the highwaistedness very much, sticks out quite a bit! Nothing that a loose, forgiving top can't hide though! x

    • 5th April 2012 / 9:28 am

      I do have a thing about nice patterned sunnies, buy a new pair every year! x

      I get confused when I go on a shopping trip anywhere outside of Wales. I'm often moaning because they just put it in a bag without asking if I want one, saying I know its only 5p but they should ask, Spencer then reminds me that we're in England haha x

    • 5th April 2012 / 9:29 am

      Ta 🙂 I can't wait until they're worn in and comfy! x

    • 5th April 2012 / 9:29 am

      Hi 🙂 Can't go wrong with good old Primarni and New Look x

      I look forward to seeing the haul post when you buy all the shoes! x
