Primark Holiday Haul & Try On

I used to be such a die-hard Primark fan. Seriously, whenever I mention anything regarding Primark to my Mum she reminds me of that time I spent five hours in one (embarrassingly small) Primark store. There was entire shopping centre to explore, and I'm pretty sure I spent the entire day buying copious amounts of cheap pants and pyjamas. I literally re-visited that same shop about five times that day.

Now don't get me wrong, I still love that crazy shop, only these days I'm a lot more speedy when it comes to filling up my basket. I am still partial to a few pants and PJ sprees when the feeling's right though. Don't worry, there's no try on panty parades in this video. And if you were looking for that sort of thing..you're probably on the wrong part of the internet.

So anyway, a few weeks ago I found myself grazing the aisles of Primark in preparation for my upcoming holiday to Turkey (FYI: Whilst you're reading this, I'll be on said holiday, potentially starfishing by the pool) and - since I bought a fair few things - I decided to haul the hell out of it over on my Youtube channel. You know the drill. Let me know what your favourite piece was and (shameless plug) make sure you hit that subscribe button!

A home haul / updated desk space

So today's post was supposed to be some sort of LFW packing guide, but due to a few crappy circumstances it looks like I won't be shooting over to London this weekend, so instead a more at-home post seems more appropriate. I know it hasn't been too long since my last interiors/desk update, but in the past few weeks I've picked up a lot of new bits and pieces that I just know some of you will drool over as much as I did. Homeware geeks unite? Something like that..

With Uni starting up on Monday (how has time gone so fast!?) I'm about to start having to get my head down even more than usual, so I've been hoping a few new accessories will help provide me with a bit more inspiration. Does it work? I'm not sure, but it definitely looks good if I do say so myself.

During my last trip to London I headed to the dream that is Tiger - AKA interior design crack for anyone on a budget. One of my favourite things that I picked up was the white ceramic pot with a wooden lid. Completely pointless, but the happiness it brings me is endless (or at least, until something new catches my eye). As you also may be able to notice in the top right of the first picture, my marble board decided to crack. At first I was devastated (those things are damn pricey) but then I realised my marble board turn from one board into about six, which almost makes the small fortune I spent on it seem more reasonable. Almost. And yes, they are the new Zoeva Rose Gold brushes, and yes, I'm completely obsessed with them.

Next up is the main focal point of this here post - the chair. I've had this fella for a little while but I've only now decided to show it in it's full glory. It's literally what Pinterest dreams are made of, don't you think. You can pick them up from Out There Interiors for a pretty reasonable price considering the quality. In fact, it's built so well I've actually managed to nap in it on a few occassions. Ever tried napping sat upright? Difficult, very difficult (but also very possible in this here seat).

I also picked up a special something from H&M Home - my first ever purchase from there despite falling in love with pretty much everything on the website. This chopping board is for picture purposes only - no onions are going near this thing! On top you can see a tiny little tray that makes me so much happier than it probably should. I grabbed this (along with 3 others and one large tray) from Dot Com Gift Shop, which is probably my favourite place to pick up inexpensive house bits. More about them soon!
