SUMMER HOLIDAY HAUL 2019 | New Clothes, Travel Accessories & FRIENDS Collaboration.

 A couple of days ago, I decided to take a little adventure to Festival Place in Basingstoke for a little shopping spree. I’m sure you know this already, but in 3 weeks I will be heading to Barcelona. As you know from previous holidays, I absolutely love wearing new clothes and treating myself throughout the whole holiday. So of course, I was going to go shopping and buy some new bits. I only purchased things from New Look, Primark, Schuh, and Wilkinson’s – so it’s not a lot really!

Primark

I absolutely love going shopping in Primark. I think their quality of clothing is spot on for the prices they are charging, even better if they are bought in the sale. I normally try my best to hold off buying something, as usual, everything I like goes into the sale eventually. If you know Primark, then you’ll know how amazing their sales are. I decided to purchase some pajamas. I knew I wanted a short set and another nightdress, so this was pretty easy. I was so pleased to have found a FRIENDS nightdress and I LOVE FRIENDS AND I LOVE NIGHT DRESSES – IT WAS JUST PERFECT! I then found a long black t-shirt dress which just said “fearless” and some comfy lounge shorts. These are just a couple of staples which I wanted to have. I really want to wear an oversized t-shirt at the airport, just because it will be comfortable, and I think it will be perfect for the 2-hour flight that I will have. Lastly, I found some travel accessories which I just couldn’t resist. As you can see from the photo, they are just beautiful and a MUST HAVE!

New Look

I feel like there is a clear trend in the sort of things that I like to purchase or a look that I am trying to create. A majority of things that I have purchased are either the same style or color. But, then again, I LOVE IT, so I can’t complain. I kind of went into New Look with an idea in mind of what I wanted to purchase. New Look is similar to higher end shops, so you can actually get a bargain for something that would be in Topshop or River Island, except you’ll be paying like £20 cheaper.

Schuh

Again, I went into Schuh with a purpose. I went in, spoke to the lovely worker, explained what I was looking for and that was that. I tried it on and I bought it. I am pretty sure I was in Schuh for less than 3 minutes. The thing that I like about me when I am shopping is that I already have a thing in the mind of what I want. Therefore, I hardly ever just pointless shop. I prefer going to shops, getting what I need and coming straight back out.

  1. Black Checkerboard Vans £44.99

Wilkinson’s

And lastly, I went into Wilkinson’s or WILKO as some may say. I actually can’t remember the last I went here, except for today lol. I knew they do brands, except they also do low prices – so of course, I went there. I just picked up some of the travel essentials that I might need. I didn’t get everything that I needed as I still need to make a list of what I actually need. For the empty bottles, I will just put some stuff from home in there. Once, I have found out what I can and can’t take from home, then I will be heading out for a 2nd trip to get everything else.

Spring Primark Haul 2019 | Disney Collaboration, Travel, and Accessories.

I never thought that I would ever do a Primark Haul on this blog. I figured that since I have been making a lot of purchases recently, it would be lovely to show you all the incredible bargains that I managed to get.

IMG_6233.jpg

Primark is a very popular retailer, known for its cheap and affordable prices. I absolutely love taking a little visit into Primark as there is always something that catches my eye, whether if it is bright and colourful, very cheap, or even in the sale. I usually make purchases from their travel, homeware section, and occasionally their pyjama section. I have never bought anything from Primark that was not worth the value I paid, so I 100% recommend it.

However, I have a few holidays coming up within the next few months, including Paris, Belfast, Bordeaux, and Barcelona – knowing me though, I will book some more. I have bought a few things to take to each of these destinations. Of course, I couldn’t go to Paris (Disney Land) without taking a few iconic pieces to get me in the mood. I have also got myself some travel essentials, especially if I want to make a habit of it.

Let’s get into it…

Disney Collaboration

I absolutely love it when Primark do their collaborations with other brands, as the items they produce are just so beautiful and I am just tempted to buy everything. I decided to buy a T-shirt dress, night dress, shopper bag, and a make-up bag. I think these are just perfect for the two days that I am going to park for. I can’t wait to get all Disney-up and take some very cute photographs. My favourite piece is definitely the shopper bag. The images of Mickey are just so funny and I think it’s a good laugh. Keep an eye out on my Instagram for some Disney pictures.

  1. Mickey Mouse Long T-Shirt Dress £8.00
  2. Mickey Mouse Night Dress £6.00
  3. Mickey Mouse Shopper Bag £3.00
  4. Mickey Mouse Make-up Bag £5.00

Travel

Sorry, not sorry – I just couldn’t resist! A couple of weeks ago, I noticed the travel pillow was in the sale from £4.00 to £2.00 which is just CRAZY!!! I went back to the same Primark about 2 days ago and found the matching eye mask and passport cover. If you know me well, then you’ll know that I love everything to be matching and this is just perfect. For someone who loves travelling and exploring, you’ll be surprised that I don’t actually own any of these and for £6.00 I thought why not. I am looking forward to using these this weekend on my travels to Paris.

  2. Passport Cover £2.00
  3. Travel Eye Mask £2.00

Accessories

I’d like to think of these as a NEED, but I probably didn’t NEED these at all! I got this belt, purely because it was size XS, and at the moment I use a Medium, except I have pierced my own hole. I realised that for £2.00, I should treat myself to a new one, plus I won’t need one for a while now. Next, I purchased a hairbrush purely for travelling. I thought it would be a really good idea to have one brush that is a perfect size to squeeze into any bag and to only use it when I travel. Lastly, I got a clear travel bag with 5 bottles and 1 pot to put all of my travel liquids in. I thought this was irresistible. I am now able to save A LOT of money on 100ml products to fit through security, as I already have the bottles – I just need to fill them. For only £1.00 this is amazing, especially as I can use all my favourite products and then, I am set to go. As well as that, it comes with stickers so that you can label each bottle of what you have put inside.

  1. Plain Black Belt £2.00
  2. Travel Hairbrush £0.90
  3. Travel Bottle Set £1.00

I worked out that for all of this I paid a total of £31.90 which is amazing, so affordable and have saved me a lot in the long run. I am looking forward to travelling in a few days, and I can’t wait to use my new purchases.

What is one item that you never travel without?
