January Favourites 2016

january favourites

Thanks so much for your feedback on the monthly favourites videos; I have mixed things up a bit, and there will now be a mish-mash of different things included, not just beauty. You can probably expect to see at least one book included per month, and maybe a restaurant or place I’ve visited, food stuff, a bit of fashion…

Watch more Monthly Favourites videos…

I hope that you enjoy the first effort; I have to be honest and tell you that I was in a bit of a befuddle because I was first of all trying to film before Mr AMR returned with the baby (never try to make a video under pressure!) but also I had been completely disorganised and not lined up my favourites underneath camera, which is what I usually do so that I can go through them one by one and remember what the hell I’m supposed to be talking about. I felt like that kooky-lady lawyer with the bright red hair in The Good Wife. What’s her name? Elspeth Tascioni!

I’ll do better next time.

    Hi Ruth, love the new favourites *and* baby AMR! Have you heard about/seen the Eames exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery? I think you and Mr AMR would love it. I found it inspiring and beautiful – what a power couple – such purity of purpose (and such love, too, tangible). Family outing for you! X

    Hi Ruth, I love the mix up of favourites videos. Its like a lucky dip and I think it also makes it interesting for you too.(If you’re happy, we’re happy!) As for those who don’t ‘get’ or like seeing much of your baby, that is definitely their problem! Your loyal followers know you pre-baby and will follow you till the sun goes down.

    Love the mix of favourites…because let’s be honest, we all know you can’t JUST be loving face products all month! Baby AMR is adorable as well, anyone who moans about a cute baby in a video with her mum needs to have a word with themselves!!!x

    Baby is getting so big! I have a love hate relationship with that particular OGX duo, I always go back to them though. I also have the serum from the same range!

    Hi ruth . Great idea to include other things. Restaurants, books. Spring clothes?

    So glad to have your videos back. The baby is added bonus. Can’t believe anyone would be so rude as to complain about her being with you.

    Great Monthly Favourites, thank you! Love the mix of products and ideas. Please keep Baby AMR in your posts as its sooo cute to hear her in the background then see her little face popping up beside you!

    I love the mixed favourites. And I think just doing it on the fly is great -it’s really natural and unforced :)

    I loved this video! And I also love the Adele carpool video!

    Hi Ruth!

    Any suggestions on how to get the Dior soufflé nude lipstick in the U.S? I’m only finding it at Selfridges online and the shipping is more than the lipstick! Thanks in advance for your help!
