TTN Visits: Pitt Cue Company, Southbank & Bills Restaurant, Covent Garden

After what feels like months (but actually was only a few weeks) The Boy finally allowed me to indulge my inner foodie and drag him around London in search of something to tantalise my taste buds....

First stop: Pit Cue Company

Glossy Box vs Boudoir Prive..

Okay, so I don't pretend to be a beauty pro but I do admit to being a sucker for samples and receiving anything in the post that is not a bill or the local free paper. So when (via twitter) I found out about Glossy Box beauty boxes I immediately signed myself up, then after a few months another similar concept, Boudoir prive, was launched and so i thought 'why the hell not?' and signed up to that too.

River Island AW11...

Due to general craziness of my life at present I haven't had much time to wine and dine myself in the Capital. I have, however, had the time to do some online browsing to compile my AW shopping list (note the word BROWSING is used, boo)....

Now, being a curvaceous woman (er, hello, I do actually EAT food in case you hadn't already guessed) my natural curves limit me to what I can wear without either a) making myself look like Ten Tonne Tess or b) like i belong in the circus. This usually means that I am also limited to what high street shops I should even bother to look in as they all cut their clothes slightly differently to each other - regardless of them insisting that they use the same templates.

River Island is generally NOT a shop I can shop in. Don't get me wrong, in the past I have managed to find the odd item that looks nice on but their clothes are usually far too tight (think of sausages and that's what my legs look like in their jeans) and up until my student discount card expired last month *sob* I generally gave this place a miss to save my purse 10%. But, I am very much impressed with many items from their latest fashion 'drop' and for the first time since my young teenage years I am anxious for pay day so I can make a purchase from RI

Here are the two items i most certainly will be snapping up in preparation for the colder months...
