May Beauty Round-Up

ruth crilly model recommends beauty

May’s Beauty Round-Up is a little late, as you can see. I’ll be honest; I completely forgot to do it! Ha! Oh well, better late than never I suppose. And it gives you a chance to see my new highlights and haircut – nothing too drastic, don’t panic, but my fringe is growing out nicely as I hope you’ll agree. It needed a good chop, the ends were like straw!

Favourites from this video are the Body Shop Bronzing Gel (very well priced at £11) and the Urban Decay Bridal Box. Remember you can win one of these if you’re a UK reader! Enter before Monday.. I have to go now because I overdid the wine slightly last night – after over a week of abstinence – and I may have to ‘relax’ for a while in a darkened room.
