When you move to a new place it's only right that you explore the local area and check out the shopping scene...so with that belief in mind I've been spending a fair bit of my time in Chelmsford city centre these past couple of weeks and of course it didn't take me long to discover (and make great use of) the rather large and lovely Primark! Seeing as I'm a working girl now I don't feel too bad that I've treated myself to the things above, plus you can see they were absolute bargains! The dresses were two items I saw and absolutely had to have- in fact I've wanted the cute preppy tartan dress ever since Primark advertised it in their aw13 adverts a few months ago, I even bought one for Rosie as I knew she also wanted it really badly. I love the cut out and lace details in the second dress too and it seemed to go down rather well when I wore it on my first Essex night out last week. I really hadn't planned to buy any more tops as my drawer is bursting with them already, but apparently I'm a real sucker for cute prints and just couldn't walk away without owning a crop top with My Little Ponies on it and a boyfriend tee that featured reindeer. I am trying to wait until November before I rock the reindeers though. Or at least slightly closer to Halloween... Aside from the pj shorts and statement necklace the rest of the items I bought reflect my new gym membership (Let's just ignore the fact I'm the least sporty person ever for a moment). I'm planning to go to the gym three times a week now and as my previous living room dvd exercise didn't require a gym kit I genuinely needed to get some work out gear. I'm so happy I could get it from Primark because you have to pay a fortune for sports stuff in other places. What would I do without you Primarni?
I actually have another Primark haul coming from a big Tottenham Court road spree I went on a little while back, so there will be more Primark bargains on the Budget Boutique shortly. Right now though I'm going to watch Strictly, X Factor and Towie whilst feeling a bit sad that my boyfriend has gone back to London after a wonderful weekend together. I may even indulge in some Kimberly Walsh autobiography which I'm enjoying immensely at the moment, it might even rival Cheryl's!
Have you done any Primark haulin' lately?
