I have been so cruel to all you readers lately with my lack of blog – I have been all over the place! I haven’t actually updated you all since I went to LA.. I’m sure you’ll forgive me though when you see these efffff off incredible booties and personalised camo jacket that I’m bringing your way! 

Lets start with the jacket – the incredible people over at @icecream_and_candy (insta store) made this personalised jacket and I’m obsessed. You guys can design your name and put what ever you want on it and they will make the magic happen. There seems to be more of Disney theme going on at their store but I wanted to break it up as I’m kind of over Mickey Mouse at the mo. He’s too accessible. Not really playin’ hard to get is he? So I went for a bit of a rocker vibe with a gold, sequin eagle and I looove it.

THE SHOES! AH, the gorgeous people at 5H PR sent me over these HAVVA MUSTAFA angels!. I’ve been after them for time. They are a bottle green colour with intricate little studded stars on the toes and a killer slogan at the top. Potentially the most unique pair of shoes I’ve had the pleasure of wearing. I can’t wait to rock more of Havva Mustafa’s styles.

I have gone aboooove and beyond to get you honey’s a blog post. I’ve been really busy working *cough* .. and drinking cocktails and frying my buns in the sun… aaaand eating a load of Easter eggs. Anyway, short and sweet look book shot by my girl Georgia Petrou on film. I pimped out my baker-boy hat with my fave 80’s YSL brooch, slung a monochrome jacket (by my new boutique store find – AOC Edit) over a Carhartt dungarees and thew on on some dirty air forces. But I think it works. I’ll let the people decide.

Are we still allowed to say Happy New Year? Whatevr. I’m saying it.

January for me has been momentous in many ways. Hence the lack of blog. I’m also a year older so celebrations have been keeping me busy. One celebration I’m actually blogging about now. My oldest and bestest friend Holly treated me a belated birthday treat, taking me for cream tea at ‘Forest’ above Selfridges and then to the HAIR exhibition at Somerset House. IMG_0216

I was in HEAVEN. The HAIR exhibition featured a mock up Chanel runway, endless issues of Vogue and deep insight into fashion shows over the years.

…We then had a very chic and relaxing stay at the K-West hotel & spa in Shepherds Bush. The K-West used to be a recording studio once upon a time and keeps to it’s ‘funky’ roots with a sassy design and modern features. Not to mention we had the best night sleep we’ve had in a while…

1. Bathroom at K West

We were given the huge Embassy suite for our stay (bed as big as your goals) – but my favourite part was the spa. The spa at the K-West actually has a SNOW paradise. So cool (literally).  It’s the only place in the UK to cater for the ‘hot/cold therapy’ alternating between steam and ice environments.

1. Snow Paradise - K Spa

How brill is that?! Admittedly I only lasted a minute in the snow room as I’m a huge wimp but trés exhilarating for sureThe other spa features included a huge hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, and chill out cabins. Whata dream.

 It’s safe to say we were kept thoroughly entertained at the K-West Hotel with a great room, an amazing spa, a lively bar and a bangin’ eggs Benedict for breakfast.

I think this is the post everybody has been waiting for on ‘It’s Thursday Tho?’.  Am I right?

The day HAS ARRIVED – I have my very OWN collection available to buy on www.betsybluefashion.com

This is NOT merch. These are genuine items that I have designed with every type of girl in mind. You don’t have to be a fan of mine to purchase these clothes. These are designed for EVERYONE. The theme of the line is cowboy/western inspired. There are tracksuits with guns ‘n’ roses graphics, lace t-shirt dresses with edgy prints, mesh bodysuits, lace up party dresses and jumpsuits, star print gym wear, star print dresses, lace bardot tops and cool AF cut out tee’s with slogans such as ‘A Cowboy Stole My Heart’. There’s also HANDBAGS with the cutest cowboy boot charms! _t5c1045_v2

A LOT of hard work has been put into this collection; with my filming schedule it was hard but I was determined to release before Christmas. So there’s no excuse to not treat yourselves to some gorgeous outfits for all the Christmas festivities and parties that approach. Or even whack some of the items on your Christmas lists or buy for your friends and family! They are guaranteed to adore. Each package comes with a custom postcard.

Here are some photos of the LINE!

A massive shoutout to our incredible hair and makeup team Charlie Wilkinson and Abby Rose and Tomo Kembery on the camera!_t5c0897_t5c1137_v2_t5c1195_t5c1267_t5c0742Follow the brand new instagram page for my brand at: @betsybluefashion

As many of you may know – I have been an ‘Evelina’ friend for about 2 years now. The Evelina is the children’s hospital in St Thomas’ Hospital, Westminster who treat children with all kinds of health conditions. It’s the UK’s leading hospital for paediatric heart services. The hospital treats children of all ages; from babies in the womb through to young adulthood. I absolutely love visiting the children and have tried to visit as often as I can – many children have been at the Evelina undergoing treatment for a while and it makes such a difference to their day to have a new face play with them, make them smile and even just talk to them. img_7539 It’s so rewarding. I also participate in fundraising ideas for the hospital. One of which (The Evelina London Sample Sale) is taking place on Friday!

The Evelina London sample sale consists of clothes donated by leading women’s fashion brand ‘Warehouse’. Every penny goes towards improving care for sick children at the Evelina London. Clothes are sample stock and sold at just £5 per item, meaning that shoppers can purchase a new winter wardrobe at a right bargain!

I was lucky enough to take the first peek through the items and take some photos to show you guys! I’ve photographed some of my favourite bits and my gosh – there is a lot! From thick winter coats to glitzy party dresses, you will be getting the best deal in town whilst supporting a great cause. If you like what you see from my photographs, then pop down to the Evelina on Friday and get your hands on some of these gorgeous garments. And of course – there’s bundles more than what’s pictured on here..! Every item sold will go towards improving care for sick children.. from life saving research and the latest medical equipment, to the little things that help make a stay in hospital less scary for young patients.

Friday 11th November, 10:30am – 2:30pm. Atrium, Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Westminster Bridge Road, London, SE1 7EH.  img_7586Coat and hat from the sample sale…love!img_7587img_7588img_7583Love this gold detail dress!img_7590img_7596img_7595img_7597img_7600img_7592img_7601…And I ADORE this drop-back, grey,chiffon maxi dress! Perfect for the christmas season.

I wanted to post something with a difference – something I felt was a little more personal. Whilst sorting through my old laptop, I came across hundreds of old photographs. Some hilarious, some embarassing and some surprisingly cute. It made me realise just how much changes in such a short space of time. I haven’t been on this planet for particularly long but in that time my appearance and style has varied. Even from one year to the next – it’s shocked me how much I’ve changed.  I’m sure you guys have the same reaction when you look back at old photos… Like, WHY did anyone let me go out the house looking like that?! haha. I would love to see some throwbacks from you guys, tweet them to me! And just so everyone’s clear, It’s super hard to find exact year after year photo but the photos are in age order obviously!

Enjoy xo

HEY! So, every year I’ve given you all some sort of Christmas video and I was definitely not going to forget this year seeing as I’m in a pretty perfect place to film a video. The scenes were shot by Rob Swanson on Rodeo Drive & at the Beverly Hills Hotel (Kim K and North West actually made an appearance, they were in the back of one of my shots – didn’t keep them in the video though as I didn’t fancy getting sued). And the song was recorded at the brilliant Stanbridge Studios. I wanted this Christmas cover to almost be like a lookbook visual with obviously the Christmas track (sung by me) behind it. So basically the video is just as important as the song. People are always asking for Christmas party outfit ideas this time of year so I thought I would tie my blog aspect into the video… so here’s the exciting stuff – where the clothes are from!!

The amazing red jumpsuit is from the brand Nobody’s Child who i’ve mentioned in my past two posts!! I can’t direct link them on my interactive widget but if you click here it will direct you to the jumpsuit on their website. Happy shopping!
