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!
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!

- Friends Nightdress £6.00
- Fearless Slogan Tee £6.00
- Cotton Shorts £2.50

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.

- White Slogan Tee £5.00

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.
- Black Checkerboard Vans £44.99
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.
