Styled by Betty – My IOLLA Eyewear Wardrobe
Forever Yours

1y ago
We all have staple pieces in our wardrobes: the leather jacket, the pair of jeans, the ankle boots that look great with everything and the handbag that holds all your essentials. But there’s one item that tends to get overlooked, one that deserves a wardrobe of its very own. Of course, I’m talking eyewear! And IOLLA sure got the memo! Unlike your favourite handbag, glasses are not a one-size-fits-all deal. Growing up, I’d wear out the same old lenses for a year, wearing them out until they were literally hanging on my face. But now, now I expect way more from my specs. Wearing them every day ..read more

“Vitamin Drip & Chill” The Answer To Even the Worst of Hangovers
Forever Yours
by Betty
1y ago
It’s the morning after the night before. You went a little overboard on the fizz and wake up to a plethora of cotton mouth, aching body, pounding headache, and what can only be described as a ‘dodgy tummy’. As I get older, the hangovers have become all too real, but now, they could be a thing of the past thanks to REVIV, Edinburgh’s Vitamin Boosts. Dubbed “drip n’ chill’ by the bout crew of Made in Chelsea, the ultimate hangover cure has actually been a “thing” with celebs alike for a few years now. Really it was only a matter of time until people took their  5 a day healthy attitude to ..read more

Giving my face an MOT, my thoughts on Botox and Fillers
Forever Yours
by Betty
1y ago
My oh my, how time flies, huh? Back around my birthday in June I posted that for my 32nd I was giving my face a full MOT; botox, lip fillers, teeth whitening – the lot. Some felt disappointed in my actions while others appreciated the transparency. I promised to follow up with a post on the results, my feels and everything that’s happened since. I’ll let you know right now, if you’re looking for some sort of botox horror story, you’re not gonna find it here! Where did I go? For years I’ve laughed and joked with friends of my plans to grow old as disgracefully as possible. Now, this is only pa ..read more

FREELANCAVERSARY! What I’ve learned after 2 years of working freelance
Forever Yours
by Betty
1y ago
Today Facebook told me that it’s been two years since I started my freelance career as a PR and Outreach Consultant. Although it’s technically been over four since leaving full-time employment, it feels like forever since I walked out on office life. Regardless of the exact length of time, one thing I know is I’ve learned a lot of lessons. Some revealed themselves quickly (you know, always agree a price in writing; never take a job for less than you want, tone is everything) and others unveiled their wisdom slowly (managing your inbox, spinning plates and realising that no, you can’t be good a ..read more

How to wear glitter makeup like a grown up
Forever Yours
by Betty
1y ago
Last year, I had a bit of a revelation. I looked at my makeup and saw basically a drawer of ideantical products. An array of orange eyeshadows, hoards of highlighters and around 40+ shades of red lipsticks. That may sound like an MUA’s treasure trove to some, but lately I’ve been feeling uninspired. When I first got into makeup I used to be so adventurous. From frosted lip gloss, basked in eyeliner to Rimmel Sun Shimmer, I tried it all before I fell into my sunburst comfort zone. Glitter Eyeshadow has been everywhere for years and even though I’ve not worn it on my eyes since ..read more

Let’s set the scene, you’re in the middle of an inbox pit, behind on your latest project and only too aware that you only had approximately 3 hours sleep last night. Sound about right? When anxiety makes its presence known and you know exactly why, there’s little you can do apart from just, well, get on with it. Or so you’d think! Nothing has as much power as a feel-good song, which can easily transform any mundane task into an epic feat worthy of a montage! We all have jams that make us happy, and even if we tire of them there’s always another that will inevitably lift our spirits. &nbs ..read more

Digital Detox – Off the grid with Argyll Holidays
Forever Yours

My name is Sheri, and I am an internet addict. There, I said it.  From patiently waiting ’till 7 pm in the dial-up days to the uncapped data we know and love today, home is where the Wifi is, or the 3G signal is strong – as the case may be. We try to find the Goldilocks balance between too much internet and not enough in order to satisfy all curiosities from memes to messenger. But what if you were made to go cold turkey? That’s what happened to me last weekend at my staycation with Argyll Holidays and dare I say it, it probably one of the best things that could have happened. So imagine ..read more

It’s not just us humans who have to look after our nashers, it’s important to keep our dogs teeth healthy too!  I’m sure if you mentioned your dogs dental care back in the day you would’ve expected more than a few laughs. But because of this, a lot of people are unaware of all the risks of bad puppy oral hygiene.  While some vets recommend a yearly dental cleaning (yea, pricy!)  I prefer taking care of business at home. Here are my top tips for keeping your fur baby’s teeth healthy for a happier pooch. Keep Bad Breath at Bay It happens to the best of us, bless em, but pay atten ..read more

How to get out of your Instagram slump and keep growing
Forever Yours
by Betty

Today I wanted to talk  Instagram and it’s shitty, damn, blasted algorithm. From bloggers to influencers to businesses, it’s been ranted about in every digital and literal form since changing from the place to be, to the place where we lose our minds and our content mojo.  But since moaning can only let off so much steam, I thought I’d write a post that would actually help you through the worst of it, better yet, even start enjoying again. These things come in waves but we gotta all start somewhere, right? As we all know, when Facebook took over Instagram they took it upon themselve ..read more
