Topshop X BLOW

Topshop X BLOW

Everybody knows that finding the perfect outfit can be an all day affair. It’s sods law that every time you find something half decent it’s always the wrong colour or length. The search can lead you all corners of your favourite stores and sometimes the journey holds nothing but disappointment....
LFW Day 1: Marsha Marsha Marsha.

LFW Day 1: Marsha Marsha Marsha.

So London Fashion Week is over, and I for one miss it already. Yes, there were blisters, last-minute city mapper panic attacks, shivers and the occasional wind messing up the new bangs but, I loved every single minute of it. The themes, the fringing, the colourways, the cuts, the people...
The Truth about Orange Hair.

The Truth about Orange Hair.

In my case, Orange is the new Blonde. Since first starting on Instagram – approximately 153 weeks ago – I have been sporting statement bright ginger locks. Little did I know, with such locks came great responsibility, with a plathora of FAQ’s headed my way related to my Barnet. From which dye...
In the Hood with Andy Bell.

In the Hood with Andy Bell.

So last week I told you about the Chouchou New Year Sample Sale (20% off is happening right NOW people!) and showcased my new favourite hood the Hollyhood Glasgow. I am so proud to be from a city where the creativity is as big and colourful as it’s personality and...
Missguided Guide to Glasgow - Uncut

Missguided Guide to Glasgow – Uncut

When one of your favourite online retailers asks you to write about your home town for their blog, an overwhelming sense of pride comes over you. Biting my Glasgow tongue when it came to the language, I weighed up the places that I go to on a regular basis and...
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)...

Some people dread shopping for underwear. Others consider shopping for jeans a process that can lead you to tears. For me, I’ve never not ended a session of eyeglasses shopping without choking back the rage at the optometrist’s. And, as someone who’s needed glasses ever since I can remember, I’ve built a lifetime of rage when...
Off the (cold) shoulder.

Off the (cold) shoulder.

Shoulders tend to get a bad rep: Sometimes you’ve got a chip on one, other times you may be giving a cold one. But, the top style of the summer – if you can call it that –  is finally giving the unlikely sexy bodypart the spotlight they’ve long deserved. Off-the-shoulder pieces are the flirty...
Shop British Wool - From Sheep to Shop

Shop British Wool – From Sheep to Shop

If you follow me on social media you’ll know that I love me some #lambspam. With endless amounts of documentaries and videos showing the grim reality of fast fashion, I was delighted to be invited to Campaign for Wool’s #WoolWander2 to show people exactly how we do it in the UK. Myself and the rest of the...

It’s a Wrap (dress)

The wrap dress has been through a lot over it’s 40 year lifespan and this season they’re more sexy and stylish than ever. From divine prints and fabrics,  deep plunging necklines and thigh-high slits, the wrap dress is no longer just a work staple — it’s the perfect dress for every occasion, from dates to...
Life's a Peach, so wear it!

Life’s a Peach, so wear it!

There are certain fashion rules that make sense to follow. Your works dress code – unless you want the sack,  public-indecency – unless you want to get arrested, and weddings – unless you want to be sucker punched by the bride.  But rules and faux pas are only made for people to have something to gossip about at the...
When Betty met Pip - Meeting your Instagram Friends

When Betty met Pip – Meeting your Instagram Friends

The internet is a wonderful thing. It’s weird (and a bit sad) to say that I literally don’t know where I’d be or what I’d be doing without it. Hell, I don’t even know who I’d be hanging out with! After all, I met my first serious boyfriend on Myspace, my business partner on Twitter and...
My times at the Tontine

My times at the Tontine

When it comes to dining out, I am all about the new. New locations, new menus and the possibility of making new friends along the way (well, you know what those sharing tables are like). That’s why I was thrilled to hear that the makers of ‘The Fish Plaice’ were back to create even more...
Olaplex - Worth all the Hype

Olaplex – Worth all the Hype

It was only a matter of time before I jumped on the Olaplex bandwagon. Ever since Kim K talked about the secret serum that took her from black to blonde in one (weirdly healthy looking) swoop, I knew it would be worth a try, but what the hell is this haircare witchcraft? I went to BLOW to...
It's all gone a bit NAF! (Salon)

It’s all gone a bit NAF! (Salon)

So Glasgow is slowly but surely catching up with the rest of the world and now boasts a nail salon on every High Street. But as we know, not all nail bars are created as equal. Sometimes, we save in price only to end up with horrid surprises that last way longer than our manicures....
