Floored Blog Tour: Sasha's Primark Haul

I'm so delighted to be taking part in the Floored blog tour, and even more delighted that I get to focus on Sasha, who was easily my absolute favourite character in Floored. All of the characters are pretty easy to like (except Hugo) but Sasha hit close to my heart and home.

Floored is a collaborative novel written by Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson, and Eleanor Wood.

I wanted to do something a bit different for Sasha, and I'm going to start by sharing Sasha's first line from Floored.

I wake up with a jolt when one of the packages slides off the pile on my lap and into the footwell.

What and Why

Sasha is skint. She's had a pretty hard load in life. So when everyone chips together and gets her a £40 Primark voucher she's a bit chuffed and decides to have a bit of a splurge and get a new outfit and maybe a treat or two for herself too.

White Grin And Bear It Cotton T-Shirt, £2.50
Primark slogan tees are excellent, aren't they? Versatile, super cheap, often funny as well as stylish. works with anything, basically.

Blush Raincoat, Primark Haul

Blush Raincoat, £9.00
Pretty and neutral and actually really handy. Being a blush colour it can go with pretty much any outfit. It's shower resistant and folds up into its own pocket so you can keep it in your bag.

Super High-Waisted Skinny Jean, Primark Haul

Super High-Waisted Skinny Jean, £9.00
Can't go wrong with a pair of high-waisted skinnies. Wardrobe staple that can be adapted for any situation.

Monochrome Sneakers, Primark Haul

Monochrome Sneakers, £6.00
Having a spare pair of shoes is always handy when you're skint, as you never know when you're going to wear out the sole of your current pair.

Polka Dot Canvas Backpack, Primark Haul

Polka Dot Canvas Backpack, £8.00
I mean it's polka dot so..? Can't beat a backpack for practicality, whether it's for the weekly shop, or just stuffing your stuff in for hanging out with friends. Or instead of using a carrier bag for your road trip snacks.

Silver Holographic Make-Up Bag, Primark Haul

Silver Holographic Make-Up Bag, £3.00
Something small and pretty and shiny, and it's just for her. She probably won't keep make-up in it, she'll keep some plasters and her hand sanitiser, and a spare pair of knickers just in case. Easier to find the useful stuff when it's all together.

Beautiful Eau De Parfum, Primark Haul

Beautiful Eau De Parfum, £2.00
Sasha gets this so she has something pretty to smell, something to lift her mood and remind her of good times, and to help keep her calm.

Total £39.50

What would be top of your Primark haul?


  1. This is SUCH an amazing idea for a post!
    I LOVE getting to go to Primark, which I barely ever can cause the nearest one to me is ages away 😭
    My favourite thing to haul at Primark is pyjamas, and also Disney items in general.

  3. What a brilliant and different post, Cora! I love Primark and I always leave with at least one Harry Potter item and/or at least one T-Shirt. Their HP range is brilliant and changes store to store. I really love that blush raincoat you mention though, I must keep a look out for one of those! �� xxx

    1. I'm always rummaging in the Harry Potter stuff haha

  4. What a unique idea for a post! I LOVE the spotty backpack; I recently bought a black one from Primark for my holiday but with I had seen the polka one instead!

  5. This is the first I've heard of this book, but it sounds really interesting! And I love what you've done with this post!

  6. I try and stay out of Primark because I spend too much money on make up, home stuff, and clothes for Flora. But that blush raincoat looks fab, so I may have to pay a visit soon. Fab idea for a post, Cora! X

  10. Firstly, it's lovely to come across a book blog as I'm literally obsessed with books. Better still,it seems like you have a ardent interest in Harry Potter(btw, this may sound typical but I'm Gryffindor all the way💖💖). Secondly, I love that blush raincoat from Primark, especially as we never know what to expect with British weather. Plus, it's a PRACTICAL way of looking stylish.😊
