SriVectin EV Reader Review

ruth crilly model beauty blog reviews

I keep meaning to post this up and forgetting – it’s a feedback email from Hannah, who was one of the winners of the StriVectin giveaway held earlier this year. I like reader feedback from giveaways – I think it’s very valuable for many reasons, but mostly because that person has been chosen at random and it’s very unlikely that they’re going … Read More

Model Diets, Breakfasts and Orange Juice.

food vlog

I’ve always had lots of questions asked of me regarding my diet and eating habits – people do tend to assume that there’s some kind of secret formula that models follow that keeps them slim! There is, and it’s called, simply, eating a reasonably healthy and balanced diet. Plus a bit of exercise… And yes, insert all of those clichés … Read More

A month or so ago I took the plunge and upgraded my Mr & Mrs Smith membership to a Goldsmith account. Mr & Mrs Smith is a brilliant, brilliant hotel booking service that handpicks the best and coolest hotels in the world.

NEW: Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

ruth crilly model beauty blogger

I’ve been itching to tell you about this cute little “mini Naked” palette from Urban Decay! It’s not actually a “mini” version of the Naked palette at all, though it is much, much smaller; it’s actually something of a matte version. If you have either of the original Naked palettes then you’ll know that they’re chock-full of shimmery, high-sheen shadows – brilliant … Read More

ruth crilly model beauty blogger

OK, here it is folks! The first Christmas Gift Guide. I’m only doing a few this year – Luxury, which is this one, Mini, which is coming up (smaller gifts and stocking fillers) and then one on the Christmas cosmetic collections and fragrances.

The Travalo – Build Your Own Aircraft

the travalo

  I won’t lie; these Travalo perfume atomisers could do with being a bit cheaper – especially if you want to have a few of them for different scents – but they are brilliant for people who travel a lot. Even for people who don’t travel a lot, actually, because they are the best way I’ve found for carrying perfume in your handbag. They’re … Read More
