Primark Presents Haul

Evening All

I thought I would show you a few things that I got from Primark for Christmas off Michael.  He always gets me a little few things from there for Christmas as stocking fillers, rather than chocolate and sweets, etc which I'm not too much of a fan of.  I adore Primark jewellery as its really cheap and they have great designs and i love their shoes as they are always bang on trend.  I have noticed though that the prices are creeping up more and more which puts me off a little bit.  I don't really know how much the majority of these things were though as they were bought as gifts.


If you read my Matalan haul post, you'll see that I bought some gorgeous little boots with gold stud and chain detailing and I LOVE them.  Ive worn them loads since I bought them and I've been wanting to get more boots like them as I've really enjoyed wearing something a little different to my Ugg boots.  I think Michael picked up on this as he bought me some more little boots for Christmas.  They're gorgeous!  They are a dark grey with gold stud detailing around the top with a tassel at the back.  I love how they are slouchy without looking sloppy or too casual, so they could be worn equally as well for a night out as shopping through the day.

While we're onto footwear, he also picked out these gorgeous gold slippers with a fury lining, cream bow and big diamante detail on the front.  I love how they are like little dolly shoes but in the form of slippers which is a style that's completely different to any other slippers I own.  I usually go for the boot variety but sometimes they can get too warm so these will be great for when my feet are too warm in slipper boots but its too cold to go bare foot.  Michael, if you're reading this, you chose VERY well <3
Now onto the jewellery.  Michael is really good at choosing jewellery for me, mostly because he knows exactly what I like, what I would try out and what I wouldn't.  These are the jewels he got me for Christmas.
Gold 'Love' necklace with diamantes, silver necklace with a cream dove and a gold swallow necklace with diamantes. All very sweet and very me.
Silver swirl and diamante earrings, black bangle with 'Love' written with pearls which will look gorgeous with my Love jumper dress, double flower ring in gold with cream, pearl and diamantes, gorgeous vintage style earrings and a white sporty watch from the men's section.  I actually bought a pink one of these watches on holiday in Turkey and wanted to get a white one too but I couldn't find them anywhere.  They had them on the aeroplane though and were by a make called Breo which apparently all the celebrities, including Jessica Alba, are wearing.  I tried to buy one but they didn't have any left on the plane so unfortunately I couldn't get one.  This has turned out to be a blessing in disguise though as this one from Primark looks exactly the same but only costs £1 compared to the Breo one for £10. Result!

Michael also got me this gorgeous vintage style bag which I adore and this little messenger bag that he actually gave me earlier and I took it on holiday with me as it made the perfect holiday bag to put all my essentials in for nights out in Tenerife!  I'm not usually a fan of Primark bags as they do have a tendency to look very cheap but these two aren't like that at all.  They are lovely.

What did you get in your stocking this year?
Any Primark goodies?
