Picking up some bargains

As much as a shock as it was to me, the sun is shining in England today. In fact it's actually quite warm. I think summer is officially on it's way. It won't be long until we can go out, lay on the grass, and find pictures in the clouds. Unfortunately from my picture the only images I can see are clouds.

The other day my Mum and I went bra shopping. 
I've been on the hunt for my wedding bra recently, as I needed to find it before my first dress fitting.
We searched almost every high street shop for a pretty strapless bra with matching underwear, until finally we found one in Debenhams.
My problem was that the only matching knickers I could find were sweaty bum pants, and a sweaty bum is the last thing I want on my wedding day.
Too much information? Maybe.
Important? Yes.
In the end we didn't get matching pants, but almost matching.
They will either be almost the same colour as my bra, or my something blue.
I would show a picture of my bra (mainly as I'm so excited that it came with a hanger!) but it's so similar to my dress that I can't.

Anyway, obviously we couldn't take a trip to town without visiting Primark.

Here's what I picked up:

Four pairs of shoes. In fact I bought 5, but two pairs were the same. And don't worry it's not bad luck that theses are all on the table, they have all been worn. 
The green pair were only £2! So I bought two pairs.
The rest were all £3. You really can't go wrong at that price, and I wear these all the time, come rain or shine.

I then picked up this pretty top. Now I'm not really one for the really girly items, but I just couldn't resist. 
I bought in in a size 16. I'm only a size 12, but I wanted a really baggy fit. 
I love it and especially at only £4.

I love the lace. Never thought I'd say that.
(say's the girl who's picked up the habit or highlighting things in her blog in pink)

Finally I picked up two packs of their face wipes. I'd never tried these before, but they're not that bad. They're £1 for a double pack with 25 wipes in each. 
A bargain really. 
Not the best wipes ever, but worth the £1 price tag.

And the socks. 
I love these. I've been after a pair of over the knee socks for a while now. Now, I have rather large thighs, and these fit. Perfect.
I've wanted them for pole dancing. They are long enough so that I can spin with ease, but short enough so my thighs can stick to the pole.
At £2 a pare I'm smitten.
I think I'll go back to pick up the black pair.

We then headed to Matalan, and I picked up these shoes:

I love, love, love them. 
I wanted these about 2 weeks ago, but changed my mind at the last minute, then regretted it. 
They were only £9 at the time, reduced from £18, so I was kicked myself really. Don't mind the pun.
I couldn't believe my luck when I walked over to the shoe section and noticed they had one pair left in my size.
They was no way I was going to leave these bad boys a second time!
Especially when I looked at the tagged at noticed they had been reduced... again! To £4.50. 
I'm still yet to wear them for more than an hour, but I can't wait to wear them longer. 

Hope you enjoyed my shopping spree. 



  1. What bargains!!!! LOVE the shoes from Matalan <3

  2. I know, the shoes are actually quite comfy as well, so there really is no down side.

  3. I love all the flats! I have an unhealthy obsession with them, you can never have enough!
