Face of the (other) Day..

Summer Model Face Urban Decay

 This was my “face of the day” the other day. Not today, not yesterday, but just on “a” day. “The” day. What a silly term this “face of the day” is! If I was talking about my true “face of the day” it would probably be brows furrowed and squinting eyes as I try for the thirtieth time to read ... Read More »

Butter London Nail Polish Lillibet’s Jubilee

Butter London Nail Polish Lillibet's Jubilee

Lots of people asking about the polish that I’m wearing in the Teen Skincare Guide video; it’s Lillibet’s Jubilee from Butter London. Not a shade I would usually go for, admittedly, but I wanted to jazz up my very boring outfit that day! The silvery polish (no real trace of lilac, though it looks lilac in the bottle) added a ...

Urban Decay Build-Your-Own Palette

A Model REcommends

I love the idea behind this palette. It’s not the sleekest thing in the world, but it allows you to take your favourite Urban Decay shades and create your own bespoke eyeshadow selection. Yes you could just keep the shadows separate, but there’s definitely an element of convenience to having them all in the same place. The build-your-own palette comes with a ... Read More »

The L’Eau-down on Colognes

the best colognes

See what I did there? With the title? The “l’eau-down”? Get it? Let me just dodge the huge tumbleweed that’s rolling towards me and then I’ll get on with the post. Colognes! What does that word make you think of? Beautiful orange and lemon groves and crumbling old villas next to the mediterranean? Or a middle-aged Italian man with greased ... Read More »

Summer Dressing: Let the Sales Madness Begin!

Ruth Crilly Fashion Model Recommends wearing Monica & Joe

I went a bit crazy on Monica & Joe this week and wanted to show you what I picked out. I daren’t even go back to the site because every time I do, another item gets added to my basket! Summer sales are my favourite shopping time of the year – because I have reasonably expensive tastes, it makes sense ... Read More »

Wet and Windy Weekend Vlog!

Ruth Crilly Model

It was very wet and windy in Cornwall on Saturday and so I recorded a little “outfit of the day” video. Mostly because I was trying to prolong the amount of time I could spend indoors – it was blowing an absolute gale outside! More outfit details can be found in the info below the video pane, but just a note on ... Read More »

Shu Uemura Red:juvenus Elasto-Vitalizing Stretchable Mask

Shu Uemura Red:juvenus Elasto-Vitalizing Stretchable Mask Review

I used this little beauty of a mask when I was in Hamburg. I have done lots of flying recently and so I needed something high-powered to really get the moisture back into my skin. I had a modelling shoot for a German magazine called Freundin – I’ve worked for them quite a few times over the years, and I ... Read More »

Mulberry Bayswater Silky Snake Bag. (And Mr Bear.)

Mulberry Bayswater Silky Snake

In case you haven’t heard me harping on: this is my latest luxury acquisition. The Mulberry Bayswater in Silky Snake Print. A timeless classic with a modern, unusual twist and I am absolutely over the moon with it! Mulberry have got things just right with the Bayswater style, which is probably why it’s a constant bestseller – though you can’t ... Read More »

St Tropez Gradual Tanner Review

St Tropez Gradual Tanner Review

The latest gradual tanner to be subjected to my extensive testing process: St Tropez’s Everyday Moisturiser in Medium-Dark. This one comes with a caution, because I do find it very, very strong – if you get it wrong then it can streak or stain. This could be because I’m using the dark version rather than the light, but I have ... Read More »

Diorskin Nude Tan Bronzer Review

Model Beauty Review

This bronzer from Dior is absolutely gorgeous. I posted this picture of it on Instagram a while ago but didn’t have the courage to actually use it properly because I didn’t want to rub the beautiful lettering off! (Oh, silly me.) The Diorskin Nude Tan could well be the bronzer of the summer for me; it’s a beautifully soft and buildable colour ... Read More »
