Primark home haul

It has been so long since I have done a haul post of any kind! This is mainly down to the fact I spent the last few months as a student living well below the UK poverty line – thank you student loans.
But as of last month my deadlines are gone, library sessions are over and 24-hour study sessions are gone forever! I'm back working and it feels so good to be earning my own money again!

So my first order of business after getting back to work was a good old Primark shop! Last weekend I went to Liverpool and the Trafford Centre for a shopping weekend and the following weekend myself and Josh went to Preston for the day so this haul is coming from two different Primark stores.

The first thing I got is something I have wanted since a viewed the SS15 preview back in like January. It was those adorable flamingo lights! They’re so tacky but so cool and I just had to have them, at £6 they’re probably a little over-priced for battery lights but I couldn't resist. These were from the Liverpool Primark and they weren't in stock at the Preston store.

The second thing I got was another piece I spotted way back in the summer preview, the pineapple cushion! As regular readers know I collect all thing pineapple and the cushion was a must have part of my collection. On the front is a faded pineapple design and the back has a pastel/mint green geometric print and the Primark ‘Tropical’ logo on it. At £3.50 I class this as a bargain but I don’t know if that’s just because I'm a biased pineapple enthusiast. This was also from the Primark store and couldn't be found in the Preston shop.

I also go another cushion which is a pale peachy/pink colour with white flamingos printed on it. This was from the Preston store and I just couldn't resist getting it after buying the lights! It was £4 which I think is a good price as the cushions quite large and good quality.

I also got bedding that matches the cushions, it’s a funky mixed geometric print style duvet and pillow cover set in pastel colours with black and grey detailing. The bedding was £11 for a double set which is an absolute bargain considering most places sell plain duvet sets for £14 at their cheapest! I saw this bedding on Instagram and fell in love so it was first on my shopping list when I went to Liverpool, sadly I couldn't find it in their store but ended up tracking it down in Preston the next week.

The next piece I found has featured as a prop in a few of my previous posts so you might have already seen it! It’s the adorable little white pineapple. This little came from Preston's store and I think it’s intended to be a small candle holder but I've been using it as a ring dish. I have a lot of white ornaments in my room (including several pineapples) so this £1.50 bargain was the perfect addition. 

Last but certainly not least is the pug mug! I loved the print on it and of course I love pugs so for £1.50 I couldn't really say no could I? It was intended to be my new work mug but I loved it too much to risk it getting smashed there so it’s currently serving as a make-up brush holder whilst my ancient Hello Kitty mug has been sent to work. When I got the mug to the till it turns out it had been reduced to 90p so it turns out it was even more of a bargain than I originally thought! This cute little mug was also from the Preston store.

Thanks to Primark my room is now summer ready, with a beautiful range of tropical prints and pastel colours yours can be as well with Primark’s bargain collection! Have you purchased any Primark goodies recently? Or have you revamped your room for summer? If so let me know in a comment below!
