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

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)...

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...
William Chambers Sample Sale

William Chambers Sample Sale

So remember when I told you London Fashion Week brought out my love for hats? Well I think the Fashion Gods were listening as this weekend holds the last few days of the William Chambers sample sale! Of course me and the girls hit this baby up quicker than you could say ‘charge it’. It’s hard...

LFW Day 4 - Rip it up

LFW Day 4 – Rip it up

It was the last day of LFW before I headed off for a few days in Brighton and comfort (and packing space) certainly was key. We were going to meet the lovely Dianna from Kilpatrick PR to talk everything beauty before a pit stop at the Bloggers Love gifting suite. It’s a tough life eh? If...
LFW Day 3 - Bacon Double Cheeseburger

LFW Day 3 – Bacon Double Cheeseburger

You know I’ve been all about the novelty handbag since, well, the beginning of time. I snapped a few courses of accessories from New Look pre Fashion Week and the burger bag is one of my favourites. I love to name my clothes and pretty much everything I own, giving an object a personality may sound...
LFW Day 2 - The White Snake

LFW Day 2 – The White Snake

No this is not a Flashback Friday to my favourite Naromode collection, this was my theme for Day 2 of London Fashion Week. Who would make a drop waist, snakeskin halterneck so practical? Scottish Fashion Award winner Hayley Scanlan, that’s who. This dress has given me all the cost per wear a girl could ask...
LFW Day 1 - The Breakfast Mermaid

LFW Day 1 – The Breakfast Mermaid

It is hard to believe that London Fashion Week is over and although it’s only my second season at the LFW rodeo, its another one I will never forget. I am currently swiftly hamming this out whilst on a pit stop in Brighton so I can’t quite get into the details just yet, but I...
Good enough to eat.

Good enough to eat.

First there was the chicken, then along came the egg. No, I’m not talking old wives tales, I’m talking handbags. It was these items which first sparked an obsession within my wardrobe, one which has only grown since I spied the A/W catwalks. Sure, it was only a matter of time for the high-street to follow...
Daks and Ducks.

Daks and Ducks.

You know when a piece of clothing develops a second wind? I have owned this stunning red blazer from Daks London for over 10 years and I think I have only just now found out how to wear it. It was one of our (then weekly) jaunts to TK Maxx, me and my Mum would...
