I bought this dress before the Benefit event a couple of weeks ago. I rarely get to go in Primark any more now I don’t work in the city centre and faced with arriving 15 minutes early I thought I’d go for a quick nose. I like the Bournemouth store as everything is relatively neat and tidy so it’s easier to browse. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t tend to shop in Primark as much, as when I have big clearouts it’s always the Primark items that tend to be the ones still hanging in my wardrobe with tags on but they seem to have stepped things up recently in terms of the quality and the designs. I was drawn to this denim dress with rose print as I thought it would be nice for the summer but could also work now with tights and boots (obvs not quite the weather for bare arms yet so I did add a jacket!)
The satchel in the photo admittedly was a bit of a naughty purchase. I don’t know what it is about 30% off vouchers that make me feel compelled to make a purchase. I’m like “I could get someting for nearly half price, must find a bargain!” I’d been after a new leather satchel for a little while and had had my eye on this one from The Leather Satchel Company (on ASOS) but couldn’t justify the £132 price tag. Then it went down to £82 in the sale, and then ASOS sent out a 30% off code to Premier customers and I just couldn’t resist snapping it up for £57 – albeit that’s still quite a lot of money! I decided I needed a new satchel as quite a lot of my others are smaller and I can’t fit my camera in but I still can’t fit my camera in this one… But have I sent it back? No I haven’t, because a) it is beautiful, and b) it was a bargain, remember?
Who’s excited that it’s nearly Thursday, ergo, nearly the end of the week? Whoop whoop! This week has been a super busy one for me, both at work and outside of work, as usual I am exhausted and counting down until the weekend for the opportunity to catch up on sleep. On Monday we had Book Club at a cool bar in Christchurch and our Book Club discussions turned into us entering the pub quiz and coming third! (And we managed to to bag the second prize on the proviso that we enter again the following week!) Tonight Hannah came round to mine for gossips, in our PJs, with tea – two pretty awesome ingredients for a catchup! Hope you’re all having similarly lovely weeks so far.
