Haul | Bits & Bobs

Haul | Bits & Bobs
I haven't been on a shopping spree in my town since the end of last year - can I get a round of an applause please?! So I ended up wondering helplessly in a few various shops last weekend and to no surprise I had came home with what can only be described as 'bits & bobs'. Therefore I plonked all of my excitingly, new items in a corner ready to be hauled! 

If you don't follow Primark on Instagram I advice you not to if you are like me and cave at the site of anything pretty. Primark have been uploading images of their new stock to Instagram recently and it has been driving me crazy. I did manage to relieve these urges when I finally came across them on my spree. I have had my eye on the Harry Potter pyjama set for a few weeks now so when I spotted them I didn't even think twice to get them. Any Harry Potter geek out there you need these!

When wondering around near the beauty section I had came across Primarks own range of makeup - why did nobody tell me they had a range!? When did this happen?! I picked up a couple of lip liners for £1.50 and an eyeshadow palette for £2.50. Can't go wrong. I will see how I get on with these and post a review sometime in the future. I was impressed by their Polka perfume roll on few months ago so I have confidence in their makeup range too.

I made a couple of splurges on interesting, quirky books recently from Waterstones and Amazon. I was always a fan of the Wreck this journal as a teenager and recently I've noticed numerous people I follow on Instagram (again typical) have been using this book called 'one line a day' which basically is a mini diary where you jot down one memory of that day for 5 years. It really appealed to me and so far I've been doing it every day let's see if this keeps up. The book itself is beautiful: blue cover with gold lining - definitely a one for display and not to hide away!

 I had also splurged on the '712 more things to draw' book which I had came across in Waterstones. Basically you draw whatever the book asks you to draw for example a milkshake or a dinosaur. I love drawing and I think this book is great for people who love creative things or who want to get better at drawing.
The last little book I picked up was a notebook a 'stuff to do' then in brackets 'if I feel like it', these sort of books make me giggle which is why I picked it up in Waterstones. I have a bit of an obsession with cute stationary and writing down endless lists so this was perfect for me.

I picked up the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer in Boots baring in mind I only went in for the boring essentials: deodorant, cotton pads bla bla. Yet somehow left with this concealer typical me. I am so excited to try this having heard so many great things about it. It is a 3 step system: eye brightening, concealer and a setting powder - can't wait to see if it is good!

What have you been buying recently??

  8. You bought some really nice things! I recently got something really similar to the 'one line a day'. I have 'Q&A a day' so the book asks a question each day, and it's also for 5 years.
    That drawing book looks like something really fun! Maybe I'll pick it up, since I still draw like a 10 year old ans it might improve my 'art'.

  27. I have been seeing those Harry Potter pj's and all the products they sell in Primark related to HP, and I haven't caved yet, but I am struggling!
    I do enjoy most of Primarks makeup, but I find the eyeshadows aren't of great quality. Hopefully you can get on with them better than I did.

  29. Harry Potter is definitely ruling the basics and pyjamas section in Primark! My sister has the tracksuit and a maroon TShirt. Soap&Glory is another brand I really wanna try! (I know i'm late) I also wanna try the 'Archery Brows' pencil and 'One Heck of a Blot' powder.

  30. Argh I'm in two minds whether to get those pyjamas! I always see Harry Potter related things in Primark, I have so many pyjamas already that I always have to stop myself from buying new ones.
    Gorgeous photos too!

  31. I've been buying too much recently. I picked up a 5 year daily journal too, mines 'Living Well One Line A Day' and I love it. I've kind of managed to keep up with it, some days I've written it the next morning when I've forgotten but I don't think it matters too much.
