Well, a couple of months ago my boyfriend uttered the dreaded words 'fancy meeting the rest of the family?' (His Cousin's wedding reception). Well, we've been together since about February 2003 altogether (first date was Valentines - altogether 'awwwwwwww!') and I've met his immediate family, and...

ProExcellent quality products and stylish clothes

ConsLack of dresses

Although this is one of my favourite shops, i have to admit im not as much of a fan as what i used to be in my teens! At school i was nicknamed miss river island, as everything i wore was from there. Recently though, i find the collection of clothing a little more limited to certain styles than...

ConsThe Staff?

Oh My God! I’ve turned into a High Street Brand name junkie…Aaaaargggghh!!!! Now don’t get me wrong. I LOVE shopping. Just ask the Boyf…he has the blisters to prove it! But I’m the sort of shopper commonly known as a “Betty Bargain”. I’m typically found in the likes of TK Max, Next Seconds or Ex...

River Island is one of my favourite clothing stores and has been for some time. I am lucky to live in Nottingham where there is quite a large brand new store which stocks, ladies, men’s and children’s clothing. The store in Nottingham has two floors with women’s located downstairs and men’s and...

You see me, I love shopping till I drop. My feet might be killing me, my boyfriend nagging me, my stomach rumbling with hunger...but no...I will continue to shop. Who doesn't like a bit of retail therapy once in a while, ehm I mean like every Saturday and Sunday... Even you guys who do not like...

ProGirlie, sexy, fashionable, good quality

ConsBit pricey!

I have been shopping with River Island for a few years now. I must admit for the basics like plain t-shirts and casual clothing I do generally stick to Primark but when it comes to things like skinny jeans and glam clothing for evening wear I always turn to River Island. The first thing that...

River Island has never been my first choice of clothes store I am more of a Top Shop gal at heart and never walk past the likes of Kooki, Morgan or USC without a quick glance at the latest trend. However I was lured in the other week by a gorgeous pair of black jeans staring out of the window, I...

Ahh, River Island, I often used to go into this shop with expectancy that I would find the perfect item I was looking for. Often the clothes would go slightly beyond what my limited budget could afford, but the clothes were so nice that I would often buy. So why oh why is it that now that I can...
