Bro’s before Ho’s – The Brotique Glasgow Popup

September is the month that marks the start of Autumn, a new season full of new beginnings for potential new wardrobe purchases. Schools start, leaves begin to fall and the official hunt for my brothers birthday present begins. Shopping for boys has been a love/hate thing for me all my...
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...

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...
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)...

Witches be trippin’

I really don’t understand people who don’t like Halloween. Apparently it’s the effort, or the messiness but really I think Halloween is pretty much the best holiday – can we call it that? – of the year. It’s the one time where it’s appropriate and dammit expected to have an entirely new identity  and no one will question...
Check on.

Check on.

Well would you look at that. The post after proclaiming my undying love for my Miista Emi boots I have restyled them, yet again proving that over-the-knee boots really are the proverbial tits. I love the inbetween Weather we get in Scotland where the sun is shining and the air is crisp. It is the...
Love Affair with Emi

Love Affair with Emi

When it comes to our winter wardrobe, there’s no item that gets more attention than our favourite boots. In Scotland, it is pretty much the only footwear you can actually get away with during these frosty, wet, and dreary months so isn’t it time we gave those painfully practical ankle numbers a break with an over-the-knee makeover? The...
November Sample Sales and Pop Ups

November Sample Sales and Pop Ups

Even though I am all about the thrill of the hunt, there is really nothing I love more than a pop up shop or a sample sale, especially when all of my independent faves come together under one roof – or many as the case may be! With Winter most definitely a’ coming, (lets not say...
Celebrate Scottish with Herald Fashion Awards

Celebrate Scottish with Herald Fashion Awards

When it comes to celebrating the talent and creativity that lives on our doorstep, it would be hard to find someone more enthusiastic than yours truly. Forever waving that #shoplocal hashtag, it is time that we celebrate more than just design. This is about celebrating the people who help move and shake the industry, this...
Not Just Bare Faced Chic.

Not Just Bare Faced Chic.

I mentioned in past posts that I am a pretty low maintenance girl when it comes to a skincare routine. I have been on the hunt for the lazy girls guide to perfect skin and ye know what, I think I found my perfect combo.  Fact: I work on the most polluted street in the...
A Night at the (Scottish) Ballet.

A Night at the (Scottish) Ballet.

About three to four times a year, myself and some girlfriends get together to watch the incredible Scottish Ballet perform at the Glasgow, Theatre Royal. This time round we were taken to the dark side to watch the The Crucible with Dylan Thomas’s Ten Poems and needless to say it was my favourite trip yet....
Scot Street Style NEEDS YOU!

Scot Street Style NEEDS YOU!

It is hard to remember life before the ScotStreetStyle hashtag, bringing people together both virtually and physically, Gordon (that’s G to you and me) has been the driving force behind the thriving online community and he needs OUR HELP!  Unless you have been living under a rock you would know that Scot Street Style is far on its...
Discount Anyone? New Look gotcha covered.

Discount Anyone? New Look gotcha covered.

I have never been as rich as I was when I was a student. With overdrafts, 50p vodkas and the monthly SAAS God’s sending you to Shopping heaven, starting university is full of new experiences and a lot of changes. While some of you will be worrying about your timetable, who you’ll be living with in...
