I have been watching Ruth’s videos for years now, in fact they’re some of the first I watched on YouTube so I couldn’t quite believe it when she popped over Chez VDM for a filming session. We filmed an über ramblely video here talking through our luxury buys/slightly ridiculous ultimate shopping list and another featuring our current favourite products that are a little kinder the bank balance here on Ruth’s channel. Here’s two fun facts for you. One – Ruth and I are very loosely related. She’s my Great Aunt’s Daughter-in-Law – what a small world, eh? Two – it’s really no fun filming next to a model, even flattering lighting couldn’t save me. But in all seriousness, enjoy and thanks for popping over Ruth!
