Primark Haul


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

To me, shopping is therapy. Walking round the racks and racks of brightly coloured garments, running my fingers over the textures, flicking through the hangers for my size and picking something up to decide whether I want to take it home or not. Oof. I just love it. 


Over the Christmas holiday and last week I made two trips to two different Primarks and collected a few bits and pieces for our upcoming travels (more on those another day). 


I made this haul video to show you the delights Primark has to offer at the moment and lots of you left lovely comments saying you enjoyed it. 

Sometimes I think watching Haul videos is like the modern day equivelant to window shopping. It's addictive and I love it!

Do you ever shop at Primark? What do you usually buy?

Toodlepip!

    I have a similar parka! Got it in primark when in UK last summer. So handy though it's such a hassle to fold nicely into its pocket so i just fold it and make the hood as the holder of the entire parka. Heh

  8. I love Primark hauls!
    For me they are best for simple tops. I'm an infant school teacher over near Wellingborough and am always getting splattered with green paint etc. So dressing cheaply in Primark means it doesn't matter if something gets trashed.
    Have you been to the new one in the Grosvenor Centre yet? It's pretty good! I got a lovely red skirt and cream jumper from there last weekend. :)

  22. I guess most of us looooove buying clothes because it can make you feel happy, beautiful and pleased with yourself and it is a great way to express yourself. And I can only guess how exciting it must be to dress your cute toddler and make her even cuter. (if thats possible with Darcy beacuse she is already so cute).
    And I guess that most people also know that clothes are mostly made under disastrous conditions but forget as soon as they see this beautiful, cheap clothes (I myself did for a long time).
    I know that buying fair clothes, not made from children, is very difficult. So I don't want to judge. I just wanted to give you a hint, a thought-provoking impulse, that sometimes less is more. And I know how much you care about raising Darcy "right". So maybe you should be an example and show her that there are more important things than clothes and that beauty comes from inside and that with clothes, as lovely as they are, comes a lot of cruelty.
    If you think about it rationally you buy a lot clothes for your child - often made from children - that she will only wear once.

    I hope you may think about it a bit more! Anyway, I think you are great!

  23. Those sandals are gorgeous! Rumor has it that we're getting a Primark here where I live fairly soon (fingers crossed), so it was really fun to watch this. I hope you have a lovely time in Florida!

  39. Sometime I forget when watching Louise's videos a how much of a wonderful experience it is raising Darcy for but also how at times it could be heartbreaking because there are so many things she missed out doing with her mum. I don't think Louise needs to justify sometime spoiling Darcy because she missed out on a vital part of childhood- doing things with your mum and she wants to make sure Darcy never does. This being said I am sure Louise is using her time well with her daughter and doing everything to make her child special. I hope I am not making Louise sad if she reads this. It is just a thought which crossed my mind when reading your blog. I think you are truly, amazing, strong person and I respect what I have scene of you. You are making the most out of your time with Darcy and I think it is beautiful. I was lucky enough to have the same type of parenting and I appreciate every memory I have because nothing can replace tim with your family who love you. This is probably really ramble as it is hard to get into words what I am thinking but anyway imagine Darcy when she is older will really appreciate everything you have done for her. As well it has made me realise that when I become a mother I should appreciate every moment I get with daughter or son because they really are extraordinary moments. I also know it was a long time ago when your mother passed away but my sympathy and heart still goes out to you because it is something I cannot imagine going through and sometime an everyday struggle for you. I think she would be proud of how you are letting Darcy grow up and the women you have become. You are one of the small few of YouTuber has earned their views respectfully and then used your power (for lack of a better of word) in a positive way. I hope you get the wonderful things you deserve and much more. Have an incredible time a disney land. It will be magical for Darcy. As well as you and Matt watching it through her eyes.

  59. I've spent the last 2-3 hours stalking through old posts and now I'm here.!
    Hi.!!
    I'm just going to put it out there, if I can be half the woman you are (when I finally decide it's time to 'grow up'), I'll be a very happy person.!
    I've been watching your videos for a while now and every new video I watch is just full of even more inspiration than the last.!
    I think in this day and age a lot of younger people can get caught up in admiring/idolising the wrong kinds of 'celebrities', but if I had a kid of internet using age I'd be more than happy for them to stumble across your content like I did.!
    You really are a one of a kind, more people should take a leaf out of your book.!

  62. I don't go to Primark often but occasionally I will pop in and see something I have to own (most recently it was a Christmas pudding bobble hat). They do tend to do lots of t-shirts with television and movies themes which I like too.
    To be honest, I pretty much only buy jeggings from Primark to horse-ride in and shoes to go to work in.
    I mainly do my clothes shopping at New Look and Truffle Shuffle.

Biao youngest being harassed for several days, Chen was still worried how the old man had to do, I cheap ray bans did not expect cheap ray ban sunglasses cheap way to help themselves solve this problem.
