Monthly Favourites – With My Mum!

Ruth Crilly Model and Christine Mum

A favourites video with a difference this month: say hello to my Mum! Some of you may know her already from her blog, My Mum Says – if you haven’t read it then do have a little look, I’ll pop the link underneath the video pane. My Mum is almost as obsessed with lovely beauty things as I am – she has quite similar tastes, too, though her skincare routine is obviously a little different. There are quite a few things in her makeup bag that I also use on a regular basis – the Omorovicza Complexion Enhancer is on both of our “can’t live without” lists – but there were a few surprises, including a Benefit eye palette that looked as though it had been manufactured in the 18th Century.

I have all of my fingers and toes crossed that the right video appears below; there’s been a massive Youtube glitch recently which has meant that all of my video screens have been playing the latest video upload, rather than the ones they are supposed to be playing! Very annoying, but let’s hope that they sort it out soon. If it’s not the right video, then you can view the correct one by clicking this link: http://youtu.be/y_1Nd7wZfT4

I should add, too, that I filmed, edited and uploaded this video from the iPad Mini that I got for my birthday from Mr AMR. It’s sometimes a little funny with how it adjusts to tiny changes in the light, but overall the quality is pretty good. Let me know what you think – obviously it’s more for emergency purposes, really, as I have my big Canon DSLR, but I think that it produces quite a clear sound and picture for such a tiny thing!

Right, here we go. Prepare to meet the Mother – all on your best behaviour, please!

  1. I LOVE this video so much!Your mum is as adorable and beautiful as you are. Thanks for this familiar video, I hope you´ll do more videos with your mum, she´s so genuine and natural!And it ended quite well with the ipad mini. Did you get it engraved?II´m thinking of getting my husband´s and my initials and getting a smart case, which case have you got?

  2. Like mother, like daughter. You both have that inner glow :)

    Thank you for this funny family clip!

  3. Hi Ruth. I purchased the Omorovicza Complexion enhancer today on your mother’s recommendation. That and a whole set of SAAF Skincare (recommended on her blog). Her skin is better recommendation for these products than any airbrushed billboard advertisement.

  4. I think it’s the wrong video, now! Or is your Mom a candle?

  5. Oh Ruth, get your Mum’s eyebrows dyed! I did my Mum’s and my Dad’s (their suggestion not mine) Nice to meet your Mum.. (waves back) xx

  6. LOVED seeing the video with your mum! This made me smile the whole time:) You two are both so cute together- and such beautiful skin of course.

    Also- funny you mentioned about the La Roche-Posay Effacalar because I currently have it in my Amazon basket and was waiting to watch one more video to make sure I ordered the right one- how funny:) merci!! xx
