Birmingham Haul: Primark, New Look & Boots


Last Wednesday I went on a cute shopping day with my mum to Birmingham! Although Birmingham isn't too far from where I live, especially if travelling by train, I never seem to venture there often. I do love the mass diversity of stores and how much better they look than in my town, and there's usually way more choice of products in the stores too which is awesome.

I didn't go as mad as I thought I would, mainly because I'm stressing about my future flat deposit, but I still picked up some fab pieces.

Primark was my first stop, and surprisingly I didn't go mad! I love the things I picked up though. The pink and gold statement necklace is just stunning, and it seems like such good quality! I stocked up on some frilly socks too as they look adorable with boots and things, I adore the monochrome geometric pair. Those white snake print chunky shoes are my favourite buy of the day by far, they are just so cute, especially with those little zips at the front! The grey rose print joggers are nice too, and look good quality. They're very soft, have cuffed ankles and rope pulls.

New Look
I only bought two things from New Look, and forgot to photograph one of them! I'm seriously rubbish in the mornings. This stunning 3-tone satchel is one of the things, and oh my gosh am I in love. The black, burgundy croc and cream side panels are just beautiful. It's really spacious inside too, which is perfect as I always seem to carry loads of stuff around with me! The other item I bought was a gorgeous black wool coat, which I plan to do an OOTD with very soon!

I'm loving H&M at the moment, I can't go in there without leaving with something at the moment. This time, I chose this burgundy bowler hat (as I absolutely adore my black one!). I also picked up this oversized creamy-white jumper and I adore this. It still has a smallish neck so it looks smart with shirts, but is very long and super cosy - I was mega warm in this!

In Boots I picked up my basics, Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and Stay Matte powder. However, I've added two new items to my makeup bag! I've been wanting a new primer for a while and I keep hearing good things about this. Stepping out of my Collection Lasting Perfection comfort zone, I've opted for the Wake Me Up concealer - will be reviewing these very soon!
