Pretty jewels

Hello and happy Saturday to you. I regret to inform you that my money diet is not going so well. I am trying though, I really am. However, I got sucked into Primark last Sunday (I was in Fife and we don't have a Primark in Edinburgh and, because of this, whenever I'm in Glasgow or anywhere in Fife, I can't stop my compulsion to pop to Primarni and have a wee look. Whatcha gonna do). Of late, I've found Primark stuff to be crap. I mean really crap, even by their it's-so-cheap-you-sort-of-expect-it-to-be-shite-and-you-try-to-ignore-their-potentially-questionable-ethics. I said POTENTIALLY. I ain't making no claims. Anyway, point is, of late, things have just been so badly cut, so oddly shaped (talked about squished boobs and an empty waist - usually it's my pear shaped ass that doesn't fit stuff properly. My fairly ordinarily proportioned top half is usually grand) and such poor quality that I've ended up walking out empty handed. However, one area that's got a wee bit more interesting is their jewellery. And, on account of this I picked myself up some swell wee bargains. And I'm afraid, people, that's pretty much the sole content of this post! Dude, I can't be being all kinds of funny for your ass all the time. Hells no. Lookee!

Pretty cameo ring £2 - I love Cameos but don't think I've actually bought one before now. I'm not sure why...

It's another ring! It was also £2. And you know me and florals - I'm a SUCKA and I couldn't resist this.

Super cute tea cup...

...and teapot necklace £1.50. How sweet is this? I love teapots and teacups and I love tiny charm necklaces - go figure.

Little rocking horse and rose necklace £1.50. Did I mention I got a wee bit carried away?

Cameo necklace £1.50. Well, if a girl's going to start buying up cameos, she might as well invest in a couple. Am I right?



Oh, actually, on a non shopping diet tip, my healthy eating is not going great so far - not terrible but not great either and people keep bringing delicious treats into the office and I keep not resisting them. Oh dear. On the plus side, my exercise tally is at 3 zumba classes and a big swim so far this week so that's pretty bright and hopefully I'll make another  zumba tomorrow. Good times. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

What pretties! I really love those rings, big, whacky and blingy and mega-cheap. A girl can never have enough jewellery in my opinion.
What's Zumba like? They've just opened a dance studio at our local baths and I'm intruiged. Mind you, I'd probably dislocate a hip. xxx

Llara said...

Unlikely! Although, depending on the teacher, there's a fair amount of swizzling and thrusting of the hips going on. I just find it far more enjoyable than the gym which drives me demented. It's good fun, dancing to (usually) half decent music and I'm a big fun of shaking whatcha mamma gave ya!

Vintage Vixen said...

Cheers, Llara, I think I will! I can't stand any exercise that involves being serious so i reckon it'll suit me, too. xxx

Abbie said...

Wow! Who'da thunk Primark could have such lovely jewellery! I'm also a sucker for a cameo!

Cintia said...

Such cute things! I like the tea cup and pot best I think. Just because it seems Alice in Wonderland - ish. =)

Pearl Westwood said...

I have quite a few cool finds from Primarks jewellery, people always comment on them, love your new finds x

Alex said...

Their jewellery tends to be a lot better made than the rest of their stuff! I haven't bought any clothing from there for ages, basic pj's excepted, because it's that much harder to find stuff that's of half decent quality.

Andreea said...

♥ kisses ♥

Good call Alex - pjs is the one other thing I get a reasonable amount of there. In fact, I'm wearing their pj bottoms right now!
