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)...

When one handbag just won't do.

When one handbag just won’t do.

There must have been a memo distributed  this past Fashion Week about how to wear your handbag this season.  Turns out when it comes to bags, straps are getting shorter and layering isn’t just for your body, and it’s just in time too! Glasgow’s St. Enoch Centre is hosting ‘Handbags and Gladrags’ event this weekend to celebrate...
All about the Boden - A/W15 Press Day

All about the Boden – A/W15 Press Day

The other week, myself and Bee headed down to the capitol (on election day no less) to have a look at what’s to come this Autumn / Winter. I know, I know, we’re barely having enough sun to make it Spring nevermind Summer, but as a Scottish girl, A/W always has and will always be...
A totally tropical taste - Sugar Dumplin'

A totally tropical taste – Sugar Dumplin’

So Princes Square isn’t exactly where you’d expect to find a beach shack rum bar, but if you venture up to the top floor of this increasingly restaurant-packed space  you will find a Caribbean paradise waiting for you in the corner. Ladies and gents, I give you Sugar Dumpling!  I mean, there aren’t many places in Glasgow...
Selling and Shopping with Depop

Selling and Shopping with Depop

We’re all born with certain talents. Music, Sports, Maths, we’ve all got our strengths, mine? I’ve been born with a supernatural ability to shop. From starting Betty as a vintage shop with two friends all those years ago, it was a testament to our over crowded wardrobes to start selling clothes on eBay and fayres...
Joining the #BLOW Bang Gang.

Joining the #BLOW Bang Gang.

Like just about every girl in the world, this is not my first bang. From side swept to full fat over my eyes, I tried a fair few styles to never find one that made me look as cool as Alexa Chung or as sexy as Betty Page. Every single time I asked for the...
Betty's new Brows

Betty’s new Brows

You know how the old saying goes — your eyes are the window into your soul, now if this is true, then brows must be the double glazed sash windows that make your soul look incredible from the outside. Nothing, not even your favorite red lipstick, says “I’ve got my shit together” quite like a set...
Something Scottish - DC Dalgliesh

Something Scottish – DC Dalgliesh

I’ve said it once, and I’ll definitely say it again: Scotland’s having a moment and it’s beginning to loose its modesty.  Artisans are coming out of the woodwork and joining together in communities showcasing that we, a tiny country popped ontop of the UK are pretty much responsible for the most beautiful textiles to be found...
I Walk the (High) Line

I Walk the (High) Line

So I’m less than 24 hours back from the big apple and man, oh man, what a journey it was. Everything about the city screams opportunity and life, from the people the landscape, it’s a constant – pinch me, is this real? – kind of thing. My fist day was all about finding my bearings around...
