Louise Pentland

Who is Louise Pentland?

Louise Pentland is an English beauty blogger and vlogger who is active on YouTube, Instagram and other social platforms. She was born on 28th April 1985 in Northampton. She is known for writing on a blog and posting beauty and lifestyle-related videos on YouTube.

Early life and education of Louise Pentland

Louise had a rough childhood. Her mother died because of cancer when Louise was just 7 years old. Her father got married again, but that only worsened the situation because Louise experienced physical and psychological abuse from her stepmother. She also got bullied by her classmates while attending high school. After finishing Northampton High School, Louise attended Liverpool John Moores University. She graduated in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in Science with Honours in Psychology and Biology.

Sprinkle of Glitter

After finishing her education, Louise worked at several office jobs but never really felt satisfied with them. To express her creativity and passion for beauty, she started posting on a blog called Sprinkle of Glitter. Since her blog was getting a lot of attention, Louise decided to create YouTube videos under the same title. Her first video was called I'm Pregnant With Baby Glitter, and it got over 1,7 million views. Later she posted some beauty-related videos alongside fashion and lifestyle advice. Louise has been honest with her followers from day one. She talked about her pregnancy, approaching fashion as a plus-size woman and being ok with looking average. She has a great sense of humour and loves to show her followers that life isn't that serious.

Some people don't enjoy watching fashion-related videos from beauty vloggers because they feel like there's not a lot of diversity. Beauty gurus are showing one outfit after another, forgetting about plus-size women. Louise is one of the few who focus on helping plus-size women and teaching them how to dress. That doesn't mean that Louise doesn't care about her body. She makes sure to live a healthy lifestyle and stays away from drastic changes. Her series is called Plus Size Style, and she posts videos about plus-size fashion and her favourite stores. She regularly shows her wardrobe, informs her audience of any changes, and shares her opinion on designer clothes.

Louise Pentland's YouTube content

Louise's influence was never limited to classic YouTube videos. She wanted to communicate with her audience on a more personal level and hear their suggestions. To accomplish that, she created a show called Glitter Time, where she would invite her fans to chat with her and ask her some questions. Although her audience loved Sprinkle of Glitter, Louise started to feel like it didn't represent her as an adult woman anymore. She wanted to share her growth and talk about more than just beauty and fashion. In 2016 she posted a video with a frightening title: Why I'm 'Quitting' My YouTube Channel. Luckily, Louise only announced that she would be changing her YouTube name to Louise Pentland because she wanted to make videos regarding her life.

Although Louise is a famous vlogger, blogger and overall internet celebrity, she is, most importantly, a mother. She decided to share her experience with her viewers, whether it regarded her pregnancy or raising her children. One of her series is called Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum, where she talks about all the exciting but scary parts of being a mother. She made some fun videos, showing her followers how she announced her pregnancy to her family and friends. She also took her fans with her to see her ultrasound experience, showing that there's nothing to worry about. Her other series is called Mumlife, where she shares all the challenges of raising kids. She talked about their eating habits and how much her life improved after she started to focus on creating routines.

Louise Pentland's books

Since Louise became so famous, people were constantly asking for more advice from her. They wanted to hear her life story and YouTube videos just weren't enough. Louise had enough experience in writing because of her blog, so she decided to write a book about her life. The first book, Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter, was published in 2015. It became a hit with thousands of sales, which pushed Louise to write the continuing story. Louise published a few more books until Bonnier Books announced that they would be publishing a three-year portfolio of Louise's life. Although it all started with one book, Louise can now be called a writer as well.
