March Favourites

march beauty favourites

I think I lost the plot a bit in this video: I start talking about the love I have for my tumble dryer. More specifically, the love I have for emptying out the water drawer (it’s a condenser dryer) and removing the fluff from the fluff-catcher. I get a sort of calm satisfaction from doing it, but at the same time a small thrill. Is that weird?

Anyway, there’s plenty of beauty going on for those who don’t get turned on by electrical appliances and there’s some non-beauty too, including an incredibly cute baby anorak from H&M with all-over bird print and a sporty mesh lining. If they did it in an adult size I’d be wearing it every day. As it stands, they don’t, so I’m living vicariously through my baby, who has also been wearing little gold shoes that I’d love to own (they have rabbit ears on them) and some rather nice knitted grey hoodies.

Here we go – try not to get distracted by my HUGE false lashes:

    Ruth, I am totally pro-tumble dryer talk! I love talking about fancy domestic items – my friend and I were waxing lyrical about posh cleaning products the other day. If you must do housework, might as well enjoy it, I think!

    Hi Ruth! Loved the intro to this one. You’re so honest and down to earth. Human! :) It’s wonderfully refreshing. What shade are you wearing on your nails in this vid? (sorry if you say in the actual video….I can’t watch it til later as left my headphones at home and am currently sat in a busy cafe ;) xx

    Hi Ruth – I love the jumper – I think there are a few of us that would love to know where it’s from!?x

    You look stunning Ruth and great video! :-)
    Phyto 9 Hair Cream is amazing, if you have really dry and damaged hair… otherwise, if you have only dry ends Phyto 7 is enough, at least in my opinion.

    I’ve just bought a condenser (I’m currently 5 months pregnant) and it’s my new love! I’m exactly the same, although I’m not sure if mine are nesting habits. There is no greater joy atm than cleaning up the lint & pouring out the water…how has my life reached this stage?! x

    The Kerastase elixir is sublime. Thank you for the recommendation! It makes my fine hair feel silky smooth without any lankness – a bit pricey, but I love it!
