Convicted drug smuggler "Cocaine Cassie" flaunted her flash engagement ring after she confirmed she is getting married to her partner in Columbia.

Cassandra Sainsbury, 25, hit headlines after she was found guilty of attempting to smuggle a whopping 5.8 kilograms of drugs out of the country in April 2017.

She was released from El Buen Pastor women’s prison last year after spending three years behind bars and later found love with computer technician Tatiana this May.

After a whirlwind five months together Tatiana took Cassie to Cartagena and proposed at a "cosy little restaurant" on the beachfront.

On Thursday, she admitted to her 15,000 followers that she is struggling to decide on a wedding dress.

She wrote on Instagram: “So hard to choose a wedding dress. Yes people, I’m engaged”.

The 25-year-old has previously spoken on her love for her partner after sharing a photo of the pair together, which said: “When you least expect it, good things do happen”.

She said the relationship was "really unexpected" and said the pair "hit it off" when they went out for a birthday with the same group of friends.

Despite her criminal past, Tatiana still decided to pursue a relationship with her once she confessed to her crimes.

"Basically, Tatiana said she wasn't going to judge me on my past, she was really mature about the whole situation," she told the Daily Mail.

"I feel like I'm the happiest I've ever been.

"It's nice to feel like I can be myself with no judgement from someone who is always there for me."

Cassie had come out as a lesbian when she announced she was engaged to her inmate Joli Pico.

"It has always been something there, I had relationships like that in Australia… but not as serious," she said.

The 25-year-old is hoping to return home to Adelaide, Australia once a judge allows following delays in the Colombian legal system caused by Covid-19.

She added: "We'll get married and then the plan is to go back home for a while, sort things out there, see my family and then make a decision about what the big plan will be."
