What can a girl do with £10?

Whilst in London on Saturday, I thought it would be rude not to pop into a little known shop called Primark on Oxford Street.  I do have a secret love for Primark - yes I've said it.  You can pick up some great little items and mix them with let's say more expensive ones. 

Anyway, back to my tenner.


A useful bag, CK'esq style for Spring/Summer = £6.00

A pretty polka dot brolly for those pesky showers = £3.00

A pair of sunglasses for the long hot sunny days = £1.00

You would never know that I like pink!

What would you spend £10 on?

Hi Sarah! Love your pretty brolly!
It's quite impossible here to buy all those pretty things with 10 Euros/GBP!

Ahhh! Primark - my favourite shop! I thought it was just me with the passion for this little known shop, are there others out there...........?

Louise said...

I'd spend £10 on items just like you have. I am all for a bargain, and cannot justify spending on 'pay through the nose' labels. x

I brought one of those the other day, for £6 you can't go wrong can you?
I really wish I had grabbed a brolly too!
Have a peek at my blog for a chance to win a handmade bag by Hen of Henhouse.

Ahhhh, I love a bargain too and if with 10 punds I could buy things as beautiful as the ones you bought then I am a very happy bunny!

I love the long handle on the brolly. Were there other colours - say, blue? Can't resist blue with white polka dots.
Spent £10 on a coat from the charity shop yesterday. It's a good one that will keep me dry on the out-of-season English beaches!

All things bright and beautiful... said...

Sarah I was in Primark on Oxford Street on Sunday - and I got the bag - love it love it!! I had never been in a Primark before - my son's girlfriend couldn't believe it - we don't have one near where I live.

Now that's £10 well spent!I would have been happy to spend that amount on the bag alone!
I paid a tenner in the CS the other day for two pretty plates.The nearest Primark is quite a drive away...just as well as I would be in there ALL the time with bargains like that!

Bellaboo :o)

I got that brolley last week and have already used it and I felt very girlie walking along with a bright pink brolley! I have seen the bag too a few times but I think I will just have to go and get it, it's rude not to at £6 isn't it? lol!

Emm I would spend £10 on getting pizza delivered! I'm not sure if thats what you meant though :)

I love the bag although I hate shopping in Primark, it's the smell that put me off. Like a plastic sort of smell :(

You've reminded me - my SIL has one of those bags she bought for me @ the weekend - must call her & collect :)

Have to be in the right frame of mind to tackle Primark.

I have to tell you I've never been in a Primark before but reading your post might just persuade me to go in there now. x

On a day like today with the sun shining I would spend £10 on a lovely cup of tea, a slice of cake and a potted primrose at our local garden center....

Primark clothes are the best when I shop for the kids...
