When you buy a dress from Primark that you actually REALLY like, you always run the risk of it becoming one of those dresses that everyone and their Granny owns. A few weeks back I invested in this amazing sheer 70’s style shirt dress from our favourite bargain store, and for £17 it was the most glamorous purchase I made all year.

After my office selfie the dress became a firm social media hit. I wanted to rock it again as soon as possible so matched it up with my favourite Arkive Clothing “Betty” shoes to hit up Bonnie Bling’s Baby Shower.

Dress: Primark, Shoes: Arkive Clothing, Betty Ring: Bonnie Bling

As far as make up is concerned at the moment I am all about the HUGE cat eye flicks, ever since being introduced to the new Benefit They’re Real Push Up Liner that is! It is hands down the most precise and easy to use eyeliner I have ever came across. It gives such a smooth finish and trust me when I say – IT DOESNT BUDGE!!!! Totally worth the investment if like me your make up abilities are somewhat limited!

The waterproof eyeliner was definitely needed for the arrival of Baby Bling, it’s got all us girls in a baby tissy with all the cute miniatures of everything!  Think constant bump groping (sorry Mhairi), baby grow decorating and tones of cuteness squished into one happy wee day. You’ve got to hand it to Ms Bling, even with a glorious baby human growing inside her belly, she has still managed to create an unbelievable collection just before she pops. I am all about Bonnie Beasties, here are a few of my favourite pieces starting from just £15!

I am all for some Swan Love and Ginger Highland Coos. It does seem to be that I am attracted to just about everything Bonnie Bling makes in orange (what can I say, she got my shade down!) My custom made Betty ring has made itself a firm favourite in my everyday wardrobe and I have my eye on all pretty much all the broches and necklaces! What’s your favourite  Bonnie Beastie?

forever yours betty

  1. That Primark dress is amazing. Sometimes they just get it so right.
    I am loving the Bonnie Beastie collection, think my fav has to be the statement crab necklaces. Hx

  2. I know right! This ones a keeper! The crab is amazing but I think cos I’m scared of them I can’t handle one round my neck! Haha! X
