This is me, Ruth Crilly: erstwhile fashion model, dedicated beauty insider and prolific writer of nonsense. (I’m the one on the right in the photo.) I started this blog in 2010 after ten years as an international fashion model and I’ve been a full time content creator ever since, making what I hope is highly entertaining and useful stuff for you to read and watch.
I write regularly about beauty and fashion but many of my most popular posts steam from completely random and mundane thoughts. Pondering the mystery of the free hotel loofah, for example, or listing the various creepy things that small kids do.
I was a Londoner for over a decade but now live in rural Somerset with my husband, two small children, house cat and crazy dog. And so I also write about my house (I’m borderline obsessive when it comes to interiors) and my family life and make videos on all of these subjects too – you can my videos on Youtube here.
I have spent an inordinate amount of time moving homes and renovating houses and you can follow some of my projects on my little interiors Instagram account @casacrilly. One of my best projects was the renovation of a gorgeous seaside holiday cottage on the Dorset coast and this can now be booked for short stays or longer holidays, you can find the bookings page here.
If you’d like to work with me, please use the contact page or get in touch with Gleam Futures; if you’d like to know a bit more about me then hang on just a second, I’m almost finished with a very short biography and I’ll put a link to that here when it’s finished.
Now on to the rest of the site and a marathon reading session. And if you don’t know where to begin then may I suggest clicking here for a selection of random tales?
