How to be Prepared for the British Summer

A Model Recommends

This video! Blimey, it has taken an absolute age to put together! I wanted to film some of it in the rain and some of it in the sun, but it has taken WEEKS for the sun to appear! Now that it’s finally out, we are all sat sweltering in London and cursing the fact that only about 0.002% of buildings have any air con. I, for one, am going a bit stir-crazy because I have so much work to do, and I’m stuck in my office with the blinds closed and my various computer-devices kicking out an extra 100 degrees of heat. Usually it can never be too hot for me – give me a flimsy dress and a tree to retire under for a nap and I’m a happy woman – but when you’re stuck inside? Ugh.

You’ll notice that I’ve done a spectacular job of applying my St Tropez in the video. If I make it look easy, then that’s because it is easy. My Mum could do it, and she once brushed her teeth with Immac. Or was that my Dad? One thing to note, that I didn’t mention in the video, is that as well as the Perfect Legs Spray giving an instant bronzed finish to the skin, it works away beneath the bronze to give a lasting self-tan. So it’s a double-duty kind of product! I mention that so that you remember to use a mitt and really make sure that you have blended properly. It takes mere seconds, but just have a little check on the backs of calves and the inside thigh area to make sure you haven’t missed any areas out!

Right. Here’s the video. Do enjoy the part where my skirt flies up and the section where I put a bag on my head like a lunatic. It’s all for your amusement, I am here merely to serve.

With thanks to St Tropez for sponsoring my weather video! You can find the Perfect Legs Spray at Debenhams here: http://tidd.ly/fbf4f3df


  1. LOVE this video. What sunglasses are you wearing (I’m a little obsessed)?

  2. Hey ruth! I stumbled upon your blog only recently. I love all your videos and blog entries. I just had a quick question in my mind. I would really appreciate if you could take some time out of your busy life to help me with the crisis. I am an engineering student, but quite passionate about modelling. I have never been involved in any professional photoshoots per se. But I would love to give it a shot. So can you guide me through as to where exactly i make a beginning with this career and if it a risk worth taking? Love xx

    • Hey Shifu, type Model FAQ into the search box and a list of excatly that type of post comes up! You will find it helpful, I think! x

  3. I do not live in Britain normally but I am here for the month and I know exactly what you’re talking about! I found one of those teeny tiny umbrellas at Cath Kidston and I also bought Hunter boots :)
