Pretty Primark Picks

As you probably already know, I am a HUGE Primark fan, and pretty much whenever I am within 100 metres of one, I just have to step inside. Particularly at this time of year, when snuggly warm fashion is all the rage, Primark is my absolute favourite place to shop and so I thought I would show you some of the bits and bobs I've been buying recently! 

I am always notoriously cold so when I saw these cuter-than-cute hand warmers sitting there on display in Primark I couldn't resist popping a couple in my basket. Particularly with the weather being super chilly, there is nothing better than putting these in your handbag and whipping them out when you're in the great outdoors. I think they'll be super handy for slipping in a pair of gloves when things get really cold! They're a bit of a faff to make hot (it involves boiling them in water and waiting for it to cool, etc. etc.) but totally worth it for a teensy £1 each. 

I featured these in a haul video a while ago and I've been meaning to blog about them forever - how CUTE are these Bambi fluffy slipper socks?! I adore anything Bambi-related and these are so warm and snug, they keep my tootsies incredibly warm and even have a little fluffy white tail on the back - aw! I think they now do them in baby blue too - definitely need to pick up another pair! 

Speaking of socks, Primark seem to have cottoned on (geddit?!) to the photographic sock trend I've seen in places like Topshop for a while now. They literally had dozens of designs, and I couldn't resist picking up some cupcake-covered socks, a pair of the cutest baby penguin socks I've ever seen, as well as some glitzy gemstone ones. Love!

As a self-confessed clean-freak, a little bottle of hand sanitiser is never far from my grasp. Whilst Carex is usually my brand of choice for this handbag essential, when I was at the till in Primark a few days ago I spied some little pink bottles of hand gel for a mere 60p, and thought I'd take the plunge and invest. My oh my am I glad I did! This stuff smells incredible. Seriously. Although it says it's strawberry scented, I have to say this stuff smells SO much like Lush's Snow Fairy I can't even describe it. If you're a fan of that sugary sweet fragrance, you need this. I'll definitely be going back for more!

Finally, hooray for Primark's amazing jewellery range this season. I always think Primark hit the nail on the head when it comes to jewels, but they've really excelled themselves recently. They've been particularly amazing for statement necklaces, and I feel like every time I've been in lately I've walked away with a bling-tastic bold neck piece. They're all around a fiver each, which I think is an amazing price for how pretty they are.

What have you been loving from Primark lately?


  1. Oh my gosh those Bambi slippers are too cute - I have such an obsession with deers at the moment haha :) Their jewellery is amazing too at the moment, love that pink necklace, keep being tempted to pick it up! xx

  2. I love all the different slipper socks that Primark have in lately. Quite tempted to buy a couple of different ones. How cute are all their socks too?
    I love the necklaces you picked out as well!
    I'm planning on making a trip to my local Primark tomorrow and can't wait to see what else they have in. I can imagine I'll be going a little crazy when it comes to warm and snug PJs and socks. :)
