August Haul | Primark and Superdrug

Yesterday I turned 17, I had a really nice and relaxing birthday after a morning of shopping. I'm a bit limited on what I'm able to do at the moment but I had a good time going through Primark, spending my birthday money! Instead of a birthday haul I thought I would show you what I bought yesterday, my local Primark is in a bit of a awkward Summer/Autumn stage at the moment so I didn't find much but I did find a few bargains so I thought it was worth sharing them with you. I also treated myself to a few beauty products, something I haven't done in a while!


A couple of days ago on Twitter Lucy from Two Backpackateers recommended the Simple Anti-Blemish Moisturiser to me. I read a few reviews of it and then spotted it in Superdrug yesterday on offer for just £3.32, I couldn't just walk past it! My skin has been so bad over the past few months, it has never been like this so I haven't been too sure of what to do so I'm really hoping that this product will help! I've had mixed experiences with Simple before, hopefully this time it will all be positive.

I also spotted Makeup Revolution in the Superdrug that I visited which I was very happy about. A lot of the products were sold out but I did pick up one of their nail polishes in Adore. I think it is going to be a great transitioning colour as we go into Autumn! This eyeshadow in Sold Out also caught my eye, both products were only £1 and I'm sure I'll be reviewing them when I've tried them out so look out for that. I also picked up another Nivea lip balm, I go through these so quickly so I pick one up every time I go to Superdrug nowadays.


On to Primark where I spotted these comfy bottoms, they were only £4.50 so I couldn't resist popping them into my basket. They are really soft and more than long enough for my long legs, if you are going into Primark any time soon definitely look out for these, I think I'll be living in them for the next few months!


Another basic item that I picked up is this green t-shirt with rolled up sleeves, I have hardly any green in my wardrobe and I thought it would be something a little different for Autumn. It was only £4 and they had loads of colours to choose from, I think I'll be picking up a few more of them soon as they are perfect for just throwing on with a pair of jeans.


This top was the first thing that I spotted, I'm on the look out for Autumn clothes at the moment and this really caught my eye. Not only do I love the pattern but it is also made out of a thicker material compared to most tops, it is going to keep me so much warmer. Despite the intricate pattern I think it will be easy to style as well. It was only £5 which I think it great, I think I would prefer it if it had rolled up sleeves but that's only a minor detail.


My best buy of the day was probably this tan satchel which my Mum actually spotted. It was marked down to £5 from £9 and they had it in black as well. I have a satchel already but it is quite big so I wanted to pick up a more medium sized one and this is perfect. I was so tempted to get the black one but this colour is definitely better for Autumn and I already have lots of black bags. This is definitely something to look out for!

I also picked up a pair of their jeans for only £5, they had loads of jeans marked down so look out for them, unfortunately the pair I got don't fit but that does mean I get to go back to Primark next week!

That's it for this shopping trip! I'm really happy with everything I've bought and I'm sure you'll see lots of reviews and OOTDs coming up on my blog soon.

Thanks for reading,
Shona x

  4. I'm going shopping on Tuesday, out of town so I can actually look in Primark. I can't wait, it feels like forever since I treated myself so I shall be doing my first big haul next week, the first in about four months lol. That bag is a bargain, I did in fact treat myself to one yesterday from asos. I wanted something small and simple that would fit basics in for carrying around on my holiday xx
