Grinch Christmas Jumper: Primark

Grinch Christmas Jumper: Primark

Hello friends. Happy Friday😃. Are you ready for the weekend? I am, day off from work tomorrow too, yippee!!

I am feeling a little sore today as I have just had my blood taken. Not fun being over 40! I had it taken for my over 40 health check and to test me for coeliac disease. My Daughter got diagnosed with coeliac disease in April this year at the age of 13. Bless her.

The nurse said if you do not hear anything in about a week everything will be OK and if anything is wrong we will send you a new appointment. Eek, I will be nervously waiting all week.

I work in a supermarket by day and blogger by night. We were told on Monday that this month we do not have to wear their uniform if we do not want to, we can wear Christmas jumpers!

How cool!!

I love this time of year and any excuse to buy a new and wear my old Christmas jumpers is greatly accepted.

Can you guess where this Christmas jumper is from?

Oh yeah, I popped it in the title! Doh, but can you believe it is really Primark?

Such a great price for a licenced jumper and the design, style and colours look so good together.

Grinch Christmas Jumper: Primark:

What I Wore: Grinch Christmas Jumper: Primark | Faux fur coat: c/o Marisota | Trousers: Nike | Boots: c/o Sainsbury’s

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”- Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!


Winter Wonderland theme at McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet:

I took these photos at Winter Wonderland in McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet. I also picked myself up a few bargains. I needed some comfortable black work shoes and I picked up some lovely Skechers ones for £24.99.

When I visited my Mum and Dad in the week I showed my Mum them online and they were £59.99 so I got a real bargain shopping there.

4 Outfit Tips:

1.) Buy Quality Pieces:

Buy a few quality pieces of fashion each season that will last you well throughout the season and for years to come. Think about what you buy and will it mix and match with cheaper pieces?

2.) Style Yourself:

Look around the shops and pick something you like and not what everyone is going for.

3.) Look Out For Something Unique:

Shop online and instore. Try charity shops and eBay to find that unique jumper no one else is wearing.

4.) Hold On:

If you have not picked up a Christmas jumper by now, hold on a few more days as shops will start to reduce them as they are wanting to sell them before Christmas.

Do you have a Christmas jumper?

Have you ever visited the McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet?

Have you got yourself a bargain lately?
