A cocktail named in our honour!

We love this time of year because the festive season is awash with Christmas events, black tie balls and drinks parties. The perfect excuse to splash out on a new outfit and most importantly some new accessories!

Because we're feeling festive we recently teamed up with British gin brand Pinkster to offer one lucky Boho Betty fan the chance to win one of our gorgeous rose gold Times Square stacks and a bundle of gin based goodies.

Pinkster's resident mixologist 'Miss Pinks' even created for us our very own cocktail the "Betty's Garden Martini". We're tickled pink to have a cocktail created in our honour!

To make a Betty's Garden Martini you'll need:

  • 3 basil leaves
  • 40ml Pinkster 
  • 15ml Rosé vermouth
  • 1 barspoon raspberry jam
  • 25ml Pink grapefruit juice
  • 15ml Cloudy apple juice
  • (Shake and fine strain into martini or coupe glass)
  • Garnish – Basil leaf and raspberry on a stick

Serving suggestion: Serve in a chilled martini glass with our Times Square stack layered on your wrist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If that recipe seems a bit complicated then how about a simpler seasonal tipple? Does anyone fancy a snowball?

This is a festive classic combining Advocat and lemonade with a squeeze or slice of lime to top it all off.

To make a Snowball you'll need:

  • 2x measures Advocaat
  • Top up with lemonade
  • A squeeze of fresh lime juice to taste

Serving suggestion: Serve in a high ball glass and accessorise with our silver stack The Shard for a frosty festive look.

  

 

If you've got more traditional taste buds then what about that old classic cocktail a Screwdriver?

To make a screwdriver you'll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz of Vodka
  • 4 oz of Orange Juice

You could add a modern twist and use blood orange juice instead of regular orange juice!

Serving suggestion: Serve in a Collins glass and team with our zesty orange Golden Gate Bridge stack for a seriously citrus vibe.

Now that you've got your drinks and accessories sorted for a very merry Christmas all that's left to do is draw up a guest list!

#BloggersBall Event

A huge thank you to Scarlett London who organised the #bloggersball event last weekend! It was a great success and we had such a lovely time meeting new faces and sharing our collections with you all. 

It was so lovely to hear that everyone enjoyed the event just as much as we did... Here's a small selection of a few blog posts we've spotted from the lovely girls we met:

'So where to start! Massive thanks to the lovely Scarlett London for managing to pull off such a fantastic blogging event!

I am still very new to the whole blogging game and this event was my second blogging event and to say I was nervous would be a definite understatement! The day started off with me manically running around London trying to get my bearings (I’m often in London but still find tubes so freaking confusing!) I was stressing out about what I was going to wear and not getting lost etc etc.

Luckily a lovely group of bloggers organised Pizza Express before the event which was so what I needed. Going to a big blogger event is surprisingly quite intimidating so it was great to meet a slightly smaller group to eat, drink and chat about blogging in a relaxed environment. We were all keen beans & arrived at DSTRK in Piccadilly Circus early and took the opportunity to take a load of outfit photos. Met the beautiful Scarlett and entered the building…

I was absolutely blown away with how busy, gorgeous, interesting and insightful the event was! Often nightclubs look odd once the lights were up but it was a fantastic event with the majority of brands in one section and the other section having a more chilled out vibe with places to sit – thank god because my heels were hurting! There were plenty of opportunities to mingle with other bloggers, brands and get involved with activities and chances to win prizes. For once I actually won a beautiful, colourful scarf!

The 2 and a half hours flew by and a few bloggers stayed on and we ended up having dinner and cocktails, reflecting on the perfect day!

Next up the beautiful Jewellery Box. I have seen all these stunning pieces all over social media and was intrigued. At the stall I tried on the Rose Gold arrow ring and it fitted my tiny finger yay! I find it so tricky to find rings that fit! So I was over the moon to find inside the box the exact rose gold ring that I tried – I can’t stop wearing it! Unfortunately the rose gold bracelet doesn’t fit my wrist and falls off which is such a shame! The twinkly silver wrap around bracelet from Boho Betty fits though! This is perfect in summer and especially when it’s sunny as the beads and metal sparkle in the sunlight!'

LIFE & STYLE, DURING PREGNANCY AND BEYOND. BLOG POST BY ADVENTURES OF A MUM

BOHO BETTY JEWELLERY  by Adventures of a Mum

 

Boho Betty Wrap Bracelet 'Barcelona'


Last week I received a lovely email from a lady called Laura, (hi Laura!) who got in touch to say how much she enjoyed reading my blog and said that she uses reading the blog for some “me time”, explaining that since she’d had her baby and then recently gone back to work, time for herself was limited and it was nice to have a little escapism from Mum life. Obviously it was so lovely to receive (and nice to know it’s not just my Mum who reads my blog (hi Mum!)) but it really hit home and got me thinking…when you’re a Mum “me time” is such a rare commodity, something so simple and previously so readily available has become so important, cherished, bargained for!

 



Gone are the days where I wake up on a Saturday morning (or any other day, for that matter) and think, ooh I’ll just pop to town to have a little look around or go and get my hair done. Everything I now do has to be pre-arranged, childcare organised. Spare time has to be shared equally, evenly. Of course this is parenthood, and obviously I wouldn’t change my job as a parent for anything in the world. Luckily, Stuart and I enjoyed a lot of time together before the boys arrived, we travelled, we socialised, we were ready to “settle down”. But that’s not to say we don’t need some time to be ourselves, albeit a slightly more exhausted, grey looking version of ourselves!

 


Boho Betty Bangle 'Oise'


Having gone back to work freelance when George was just a few months old, trying to carve out a new career in digital marketing around 2 small, and very demanding, humans the opportunity to indulge in “me time” is about as regular as a hot cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t just directed at us Mum’s! Stuart has no more time than myself to go and get his hair done (!) or knowing him go on some insane fitness mission. But he does at least spend the day with adults, a lunch break to do as he pleases, enjoys a hot drink when he fancies it and hopefully goes to the toilet without an audience.

Just by doing a few things for yourself can really make all the difference when it comes to feeling refreshed with life and ready to slip into those Mum shoes each day (or in my case milk sick and dribble covered slippers). Pour a glass of wine and call an old friend who you’ve not caught up with for ages, run yourself a bath and apply a fancy new face mask once the littles are in bed, or order that new lipstick you’ve been coveting.

If your budget allows, buying something for yourself can really perk you up. Especially something pretty which you can wear alongside the standard Mum uniform (breton, skinnies & converse, obvs.) every day to keep your pre-mum identity. I’ve been loving a newly discovered jewellery brand, Boho Betty, who are a UK company which create globally inspired jewellery; designed for women who want to express their individuality. There are sooo many different options on the website I could have shopped on there for hours (If I had the time…)

 


Boho Betty Wrap Bracelet 'Barcelona'


I love how a lot of the Boho Betty Jewellery is stackable and you can create so many different looks with various combinations, all perfect for layering. I’ve got my eye on some of their gorgeous necklaces next. They come in luxurious little packages which makes them seem even more indulgent. They’d also make really lovely, thoughtful gifts for any new Mum or Birthday girl.

Don't be a 'Stupid Cupid' get your girl something she really wants this Valentine's Day!

February the 14th is a day many men dread because the pressure is on to find the perfect gift. Shower your love with red roses, chocolates, champagne, puppies, a romantic mini-break, and some sexy new lingerie and she might begin to get suspicious. Especially when last year all she got from you was an M&S £10 meal deal for two.

Take the ironic and understated approach with your gifts topping it off with a witty card such as this....

valentines card

...and she may instead feel a little short-changed in the romance department.

It's a gift minefield out there and we don't envy you guys with this tricky task, but don't worry chaps Boho Betty has your back!

We've styled some exclusive Valentine's Stacks that will save you from any potential present choosing pitfalls. A combination of three complimentary bracelets, stacked and styled to create a boho-layered look that the love of your life will adore. Worn casually or added as extra flair for special occasions these stacks are real head-turners.

They will arrive packaged in a grey velvet gift pouch so extra brownie points are definitely on the cards for you when it comes to presentation. Shop for Valentine's Stacks here.

If you want to go free-range and choose your own combination then we have compiled a red and rose coloured collection of bracelets, earrings, necklaces and accessories HERE, take your pick!

Now that the gift is in the bag the hard part is over leaving you with just the wrapping paper, card, flowers, food and romantic music to sort. We girls don't ask for much! 

Check out Etsy for wrapping paper and cards; they have some lovely hand-printed and original designs that you won't find in high street shops. Nothing says 'I Love You' like a cheese pun-based card after all?!

A quick search on Spotify for Valentine's-inspired playlists brings up a host of compilations; from romantic to sexy, whatever tone you're trying to set there will be a tracklist for you. Personally we like this Top 100 Romantic Love Songs playlist below, and with 6 hours 9 minutes of crooning tunes you don't need to worry about awkward silences.

 
As for the choice of flowers and food well....we'll leave that part up to you!
After all it's the thought that counts, so get your thinking caps on!
Love
BB
