All the hype over Star Wars is something that I’m sure many are sick of, it’s definitely a love/loathe situation. I however am firmly in the love category and have been absolutely loving the variety of reasonably priced merchandise that is available to buy, and I think there are now some quite innovative designs currently available. Here are some of the highlights I’ve gathered:
Star Wars Jogging Bottoms £10.00 – I’m currently wearing these as I type and I can confirm they are incredibly comfy. These are really nice because they’re so understated, with lettering down just one side. I went a size down so they’re a nice snug fit.
Pink Stormtrooper Pants £2.50 – Pants. With stormtroopers on. These are adorable. Need I say more?
Star Wars Top £20.00 – A cropped tee with the classic image, the rolled sleeves save it from being dull
Star Wars Print Vest £18.00 – Yes this is a man’s vest but I love the style and the understated graphic print on it
Star Wars Graphic Bodysuit £15.00 – This is my absolute favourite item here. They’ve taken the theme and style and ran with it, creating a lovely item which I wouldn’t hesitate to wear on a night out
Dark Side Graphic Shorts £11.00 – These would be a staple bed-wear. as they look comfy and I love wearing boy-shorts and boxers to bed.
I recently popped into my local Primark and came away with two statement necklaces perfect for the festive season
This Pearl Linked Necklace is absolutely beautiful and looks far more expensive then it’s £5.00 price tag would suggest. It would look absolutely beautiful with a high-necked dress or a festive jumper. It’s chunky silver linking lends well to the shape and feel of the necklace.
At £4.00, this beaded plait necklace is even cheaper. It’s very chunky and the close-up detail is exquisite. It honestly looks so much more expensive, and has a very weighty feel. I sometimes find that Primark jewellery can feel a bit cheap but honestly the individual detailing and heftiness of this piece makes it feel anything but.
I would definitely recommend popping into Primark as there are so many beautiful pieces in their current season. These gorgeous necklaces will make fantastic statement jewellery for New Years Eve.
If there is one thing I cannot resist, it’s nail varnish. My continually expanding collection has become a joke among my friends, although they like to make use of it now and then!
In the Black Friday sales, I purchased the Nails Inc All That Shimmers Collection. This particular collection really stood out to me and I love a good sparkle. These are the old design for the bottles, which is why I imagine they were in the sale.
The collection includes 7 nail varnishes, from varying different collections that showcase a lot of styles. Each varnish is the standard 10ml capacity for a Nails Inc bottle.
One thing which let them down before I’d even tried them was the packaging, each was individually wrapped in bubblewrap, but I feel it would have been nice to have packaged them together into a kit.
The colours included are the following:
- George Street – Nude pastel pink
- St. Martin’s Place – Pink, silver and black glitter suspended in a nearly clear-pink liquid
- Belvedere Road – Blue metallic shimmer
- Belgravia Place – Pink, white and red ‘fibres’
- Trafalgar Crescent – Silver glitter suspended in a silver shimmer
- Chelsea Bridge Road – Gold metallic ‘foil’
- King Edward Street – Bright fire-truck red
With the exception of George Street, which requires two, all the varnishes only require one layer for full opacity (or enough glitter in terms of the glitter varnishes). Belvedere Road and Trafalgar Crescent have to be my favourites. I love the metallic shimmer of Belvedere Road, they’ve managed to create such an interesting blue-purple three-dimensional colour. Trafalgar Crescent isn’t suspended in a clear varnish like most glitter varnishes; instead there is an absolutely stunning silver gloss which, whilst not being opaque, adds a really interesting aspect to the varnish.

Overall this is a great set, including two shimmer varnishes, 3 glitter and 2 normal opaques. There are some beautiful and unusual colours in here.
I paid £12.00 + £3.95 delivery.
Unfortunately this collection is no longer available but it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on their website Nails Inc especially for the January Sales as I’m sure they’re going to be shifting a lot of their leftover stock of old bottle designs.
