The Ten Second Good Deed.

British Shorthair Mr Bear

This Youtube competition is really stressing me out! I stooped low yesterday and brought in the big guns to canvas extra votes – yes, I utilised the charms of Mr Bear! Look at his unimpressed face! I tried to make him wave a flag but he wasn’t having any of it.

I’m so sorry to keep harping on about voting, but it would mean so much to me to win this competition! If only a fraction of my readers voted then I’d be in with a chance, so PLEASE take a few seconds (I promise that’s all it is!) to tick a box. You don’t have to enter any information or email address, just click the link and tick the box next to my name at the top of the page!

I’m guessing that many people are trying to vote on a mobile device, and for that you need to go to the bottom of the Youtube blog page and click “View Web Version”. The voting boxes will then appear at the top right hand corner of the screen. Click beside “A Model Recommends” and you’re done! If you’re on a computer then you’ll see the boxes straight away. This all takes ten seconds max!

So there you go – ten seconds of your time and you could really change the future of A Model Recommends. Getting my videos onto the Youtube Homepage would be simply brilliant! OK. Ready? Got ten seconds spare?


If you want to see the video with Mr Bear, it’s here!

  5. Just voted again. You’re ahead + by even more now!

  6. Voted on my computer, iphone ipad laptop and got Mr to do the same. Good luck.

  7. Hope you win.
    I’d also be really interested in you doing a “most-used-products” post. I recently saw a photo of your cat in the sink and I looked at your shelve – I saw NUDE Cleansing Oil on there (or I thought I did) and was shocked to see in another post that you mentioned it was one of your most used products! I’d never heard you speak of it before and am always willing to try anything that Ruth Crilly (you know skincare, evidenced by how many people love your recommendations and have been saved by them) has used and loved. I had a bottle of it lurking in the back of my cabinet, can’t wait to try it! I think I also spot Dermalogica Power Firm as well as a Melvita Rose product…I just have an obsession with other people’s medicine cabinets! Little disturbing, no? I’m overobsessive about skincare.

    • Yes, it’s great! Though I think it was the eye cream you saw. That’s Mr AMR’s, not that he has any clue what brands are good! Hahaha…. x

  8. Best stills ever. Especially that first one. Mr. Bear’s nonplussed (or should I say pussed??? Bahaha!) face next to yours, so earnest and concerned, it just cracks me up.

  9. I voted 5 times!!! hope you beat the crochet guy!

  10. Just voted!! You are just ahead !!! good luck x x

  11. Ooooh I made the number 7777 – just so you know if you’re a browser fanatic, you can vote from each browser you have (I have about 6… I’m a web developer, it’s a sickness). Added to that, just deleting the cookies from each browser means you can vote again as well. Not sure if that’s strictly kosher, but hey, it all helps!

  12. Voted from every device in the house! Hope you win, Good luck Ruth.
