Primark & TK Maxx goodies (& a little announcement)

7.4.10

As I mentioned in my last post I popped to Primark again at the weekend and got a few bits. I'm having a bit of trouble with Primark shoes at the moment; I seem to be inbetween the sizes all of a sudden so I'm having to go for a size 7 and wear insoles which isn't ideal! Normally a 7 fits me fine but ho hum. Anyway, these pretty pumps were a steal at £8!

I also got a really nice floral top which is oversized and I'm hoping will last through to the Summer, and a couple of long shirts which are great for throwing on over leggings at the weekend. The checked number was only £4 which I think is a right bargain!







As I also mentioned in my last blog post I went to TK Maxx and had a good ol' browse at all the goodies. I have always disregarded TK Maxx as being full of rubbish and like a jumble sale but boy was I wrong! They had so many lovely things and I'm now eating my words! 

My eagle eye spotted this cushion on its own and it had to be mine! I have wanted a Union Jack cushion for ages but the ones I've found on the internet have been too expensive. The sad thing is it was the only one I could find but it will take pride of place on my bed. I love it! If you happen to come across any more of these do let me know won't you :)


Finally I am pleased to announce that I reached 1000 blog subscribers today! Yippee! It was lovely to get home from work and see that so thank you to my readers, new and old! I love writing my blog and it makes me happy that you guys like to read it.

  16. I've had sizing problems with Primark shoes too, I've always been a 6 but recently they've been too big so I've had to get 5's, but then they can be too tight! Lovely things x

  22. I don't really know about Primark ahoes as I have never bought anything from there (yes, I am a Primark virgin!), but I had a thought - when I lost weight a year ago my shoes size also got smaller, going from a 6 to a 5. Could something simliar be happening to you? Strange, I know.

    Congrats on the 1000 subscribers and I do love those shoes! x

At xmas my dad got me and my brother a union jack cushion each which was meant to be really expensive but found a good deal online would you like me to get the link for you? X

  25. When I've lost weight my shoe size has gone down as well so maybe it's that? I have those shoes too, they're so cute :)

    I saw some union jack pillows for £8 each in Longacres garden centre in Surrey, not sure if it's a chain or not though!

    Congratulations on 1000 followers!

  29. Wow, 1000 followers?! That's crazy! Congratulations :)

    Nice little haul there - I haven't seen that floral top in Primark, so now I'm jealous.
    I also am between shoe sizes in there, but I'd always go for the bigger - nothing worse than too small shoes!

    I'm definitely going to have to make sure I have a look in TK Maxx sometime - I haven't been in there for probably years, but I've been hearing good things about it recently, so should check it out...
