Who run the world? ASA GIRLS!

Who run the world? ASA GIRLS!

The streets of Glasgow have not been quite the same since Abandon Ship Apparel launched in 2011. Since the two best pals started the company (drunk) slowly but surely you saw a progression of man, a man who could dress well. There are so many streetwear brands out there who...
Midnight Shooting with Betty, Chouchou and Nuala Swan.

Midnight Shooting with Betty, Chouchou and Nuala Swan.

Like most reasonably girly girls, I have always romantically dreamed of starring in my very own photoshoot. Flashing lights, lipstick on call, never having to worry about how your hair is sitting all the while wearing some amazing clothing. Who would have thought that my dream would have become true when...
Betty's #LinksHiddenGems

Betty’s #LinksHiddenGems

So the other night, myself and a few other bloggers headed down The Finnieston to meet with the lovely ladies and gents from Links of London. They were celebrating a new initiative they have with The Stylist showcasing their favourite #LinksHiddenGems across four cities in the UK and Glasgow was one...
Girls that wear Glasses - Alain Mikli Life Lessons.

Girls that wear Glasses – Alain Mikli Life Lessons.

Metal frames. These two words have been completely exempt from my glasses vocabulary for the past 10 years, but somehow have re-entered with a flash of a designer. I only recently came across the work of Alain Mikli but when I found out  his work was regularly seen on the...
Shut the Front Door & Grab your Hollyhood!

Shut the Front Door & Grab your Hollyhood!

Hoods. Who would have ever thought this would be such a necessary staple for your wardrobe? Not me thats for sure, until I found my beloved Chouchou. Lets call it just over a year ago, I met the wonder that is Silvia Pellegrino. Stylish, passionate, dramatic and Italian – she...
Like, OMG!

Like, OMG!

So you know Betty is never one to abbreviate unless the situation has great cause for it. This is one of those situations. When I first lay eyes on the teasers for Isolated Heroes I was completely taken in by the colour pallet, playful shapes and textures. Their past collections...
READ AW ABOUT IT!

READ AW ABOUT IT!

Today I came into work – quite the thing – and as soon as I sat down at my desk the phone rang. It was the other half of the Office AKA The Dada Burds (and Chris) ringing to tell me that my One Month One Dress Challenge had made...
Wan Month. Wan Dress.

Wan Month. Wan Dress.

Hello there Swollocks! Betty is BACK! There has been a lot of changes on the other side of the screen but 2013 is the year of the change and I’m starting it with a brand new challenge…. When I saw the beautiful Bee Waits (sista from another mista Claire Stuart)...

Aye, Aye, Eyes on the back of my hands.

Looking for a new way to treat your jazz hands? I simply cannot get enough of all the new styles DIY Nails are churning out at the moment! I am pretty useless when painting my nails myself (I am all fingers and thumbs) so when I headed for my monthly trip to Swoon Nails, of...
Getting Fruity with Cleo Ferin Mercury.

Getting Fruity with Cleo Ferin Mercury.

Accessories. Some people are scared of how to style them but really they are just the ticket to transform any outfit. When I first lay eyes on the work of Cleo Ferin Mercury I knew that her fun sense of style would fit perfectly within my wardrobe so I was excited to get right in about her...
Snakes and Leathers.

Snakes and Leathers.

It’s not often you get a champagne escort to the capital for a fancy pants party, so when you do dammit dress for the occasion! This was pretty much my thought process when choosing an appropriate outfit for the Jenners Edinburgh International Festival Party within one of the oldest department stores in the country. Forget...
Orange Happy Hour.

Orange Happy Hour.

When Clinique asked me and Bee to a private party within a terrace house during the Edinburgh Fringe we didn’t quite know what to expect. Stepping out of a taxi and seeing apricot tape lead the way to a garden full of orange balloons, fun flavoured drinks and even more props completely sent us away into...
The Tia Maria Dark Room.

The Tia Maria Dark Room.

Fridays. Finish work, red lippy on and gather round the girls and you’re onto a belter. This week myself and Bee saw our business move forward with two new interns, Megan and Jess joining the team. If any Friday was worth celebrating it had to be this one! Aren’t we lucky that Tia Maria was in...
Go ahead and #BLOW me.

Go ahead and #BLOW me.

For someone who’s hair is somewhat of a staple to their look, I really don’t take care of it the way I should. Ever since a horrific experience at a nameless hairdressers I’ve been too scared to step foot into a salon for anything less than an up doo, resorting to DIY jobs which consist of...
Doing Casual Right.

Doing Casual Right.

I have always struggled to do that whole ‘effortlessly casual look’ that so many girls can wear with ease. There is such a fine line between scruffy and casual and I have never been able to get the balance just right, well until now so it seems! I cannot tell you how much ripping these...
Guns, Titties and Tea on the Green.

Guns, Titties and Tea on the Green.

Since the launch of the Commonwealth, I have been finding it difficult to keep track of what day it is. With the city buzzing and taps firmly aff temperatures, it was glorious to have a half day Thursday to spend with my ladies doing all things fabulous. First up it was off to experience something...
Shop Local with House of Fraser, Glasgow.

Shop Local with House of Fraser, Glasgow.

For the second year in a row,  House of Fraser has, once more, shown its support of home-grown Scottish talent by asking five of our favourite Scottish designers to host their very own pop-up shops, just in time for Commonwealth! What’s more? Each designer has made an exclusive product designed especially for the collaboration. I’m a sucker for...
