No matter what time of day it is, chaos reigns in Primark. My hatred of feeling like a sweaty sardine was intensified when I began working long hours in there, and I've avoided it ever since. Still, there are always great bargains to be had, such as this bag above which I received as a present off my Nana. I think this bag makes a perfect little weekend carry. The nude colour will go with everything, and I love the shape and added "snakeskin" detail.
A good tip if you fancy venturing into Primark: go when it first opens. This is the only time (at least in the store I worked in) that it is ever orderly and fairly empty. I'd also recommend not paying attention to the hangers (the size it says on the hanger to what it actually is is usually wrong) and don't be afraid to just throw everything in your bag, try it on at home and then return what looks crap, as Primark only allows you to put in a few items at once to try on. I remember there were some amazing deals to be had when I worked there, particularly the extremely comfortable pajama bottoms and on trend jewellery pieces, so I do think it's worth setting the alarm for.
Have you found any great deals in Primark lately? If you have let me know! I think I might get up early one morning and see what goodies I can find.
