My First Ever Primark Haul

  Sometimes I feel like Primark is a foreigner/tourist's rite of passage into the UK because it's just something that is becoming somewhat iconic. Thus, when I landed in the UK, one of the things I made sure that I did was go to Primark. Let's just say that it was a pretty life changing experience - without wanting to sound too dramatic. But I shall leave my first impressions of Primark for another time and instead, show you what I got! Although to be fair, I didn't go crazy in there...although I easily could have. The amount of self-restraint I had to go through to put back 75% of the things that were in my basket before going to the cashier...which by the way, was getting way to heavy to carry around.

£6 each

  Probably one of my favourite purchases in the entire haul because I'm just such huge fans of both! I actually do not own a Harry Potter shirt...albeit being a self proclaimed Potterhead so, mission accomplished. In the Harry Potter section, there was also the same Hogwarts crest in a acid washed grey background, as well as a Gryffindor and Hufflepuff one. I also bought 2 more for my sisters :') For my Game of Thrones shirt, I actually wore it during the 'Rave of Thrones' event during Freshers where the actor that played Hodor came to DJ ;) I also like how the sleeves on either side are turned up.

French crop tee: £5 reduced to £2 // Christmas pudding tee: £5

  I saw this insanely cute shirt with a French french fry that said 'Bonjour Mon Amour' and since it was reduced
to £2, I thought, why not? Would be a good casual tee. However, I will have to say that my Christmas
pudding shirt on the right steals the show because, how amazing is that?! And it was only a fiver.
Would be amazing during Christmas time. Although I will say that the shirt material is a little stiff.
They also had one in a Santa Claus style which I really really really want!
Floral top: £6

  How nice is this top? I love the dainty white collar and the monochromatic palette that I just think
completes the top. Also, it would look great paired with anything - jeans, shorts, name it.

Red velvet-ish skirt: £8

  I absolutely adore this skirt, although I do think that the price is a tad steep for what it is... I love the
red colour, the style and it's super appropriate for autumn/winter! The material is also slightly thicker 
and heavier than usual skater skirts, with a velvet/wooly texture (yes, this is my best description). I've 
been wearing this quite a few times and no doubt I will continue to ;) It also comes in many more 
colours like a khaki green which I would love to get as well.

£4 each

  Due to the changing weather, my neck was getting a little chilly as I walk around campus so I 
thought I'd better pick up some scarves. I absolutely love them both. Although the material isn't the 
thickest, it does keep me warm enough! How amazing is the tartan one though?!

2 pairs thermal socks: £2.50 // Cosy footlets: £2.50

  I'm really bad at withstanding cold weather - not surprising, seeing as I come from a country with
tropical climate all year round... - so I thought I better stock up on some warmer items for my poor
feet when it gets cold. I haven't worn the thermal socks yet, but I think they're better than the 'cosy'
fluffy socks Primark also has because you can wear these to bed and in with your boots to keep
those feet toasty warm. They have tons of patterns so I have to pick up more pairs :D

  Those cosy footlets weren't exactly essentials, but I wanted slipper like things to walk around my
dorm room and these are incredibly incredibly soft and fuzzy and cosy. May get dirty easily but 
seriously, comfiest thing. The burgundy tartan print also adds a nice touch.

Tights with fleecy lining: £3.50

  I thought these were really quite pricey for tights :( Butbut, having said that, they are actually 
quite cosy and thick and do keep my legs warm so...I guess I can't complain! I also bought the usual
3 pack 40 dernier opaque black tights because hey, that's what everyone gets in Primark. Don't have 
them pictured because I've used them and it's all over my room. I must say that they're lasting quite 
well at the moment as I've had no tears or bobbles yet!

Belt: £1

  Got these simply because I needed something to make my pants stay up.

Beanie: £3

  Everyone needs a good beanie and I absolutely love this one! Especially the pom-pom at the top! I
think it makes a great accessory (:

2 pack of gloves: £1

    Because my hands get ridiculously cold when exposed.

Navy leather crossbody bag: £6

  I actually really like this bag and I find that it's great for traveling when you want to keep your
essentials e.g passport, wallet close by without having to rummage through a huge bag! It has many
compartments are the material is soft leather which feels really nice! I believe they had this in a
nudey-pink and khaki as well.

  So yea, this is what I got. Nothing big but I still loveeeee it! So sorry that my posting has been so sporadic but I'm just starting to get into the swing of things!
