Louise sort of stumbled upon her successful career as a beauty blogger and vlogger. She worked in the corporate scene for some time, in various office roles. As a hobby, Louise started a blog about Do-it-Yourself interior decoration hacks and crafts. To keep up with the theme of the blog she named it Sprinkle of Glitter. Her blog gained popularity and soon become a go-to place for those glitter addicts.
The success of her blog prompted Louise to move over to other social media platforms with better reach and she eventually branched out to start her YouTube channel in 2010. She kept the name of her blog for her channel as well before giving her own name to the channel. It was the same year that she got married to Matt Watson, and the DIY crafts were used for a pre-wedding preparation regime. She began her videos with the trademark greeting "Aloha Sprinklerinos" in her trademark warm and friendly tone that instantly connected with the viewers.
In her YouTube channel, she began with instructional videos for interior decorating and DIY stuff. She then moved on to fashion. Being pregnant at the time, Louise made a lot of vlogs about fashion and outfit choices for pregnant women. She paid special attention to her size category and her fashion advice mainly centered on fashion for plus sized women and especially plus sized pregnant women who often struggle to continue a fashionable existence during their pregnancy.
Her earliest vlogs also detailed her pregnancy journey: what she did, what she ate, and how she felt in general. She took to calling her unborn child as Baby Glitter and the audiences loved that introduction for her daughter Darcy. She suggested to her viewers that pregnancy need not necessarily deter one's fashion aspirations. She walked the talk by trying on different nail arts and the latest trends in hair coloring while she was pregnant. Being pregnant and a new mum did not deter her from taking on the world; she went to London to meet with her fans and even did a little tour of the theme parks.
Her daughter, Darcy, was featured in a lot of her earlier videos and viewers loved seeing her. She featured in some baby outfit videos and cute baby accessorizing videos that Louise Pentland uploaded in her channel. In between baby videos, Louise also uploaded videos of her makeup hauls and impromptu Outfit Of The Day (OOTD) videos. She kept it real most of the time and it was apparent that being a new mum did not leave much room in her life for stuff like fashion and makeup.
She held on to her passion and kept on sharing her beauty, fashion, and lifestyle tips. In the process, she often collaborated with other YouTubers. Zoe Sugg of the channel Zoella has been featured quite frequently in her channel and the two have created multiple videos together on makeup and fashion. Among other YouTubers, Louise Pentland has collaborated with Alfie Deyes, Tanya Burr, Dan Howell, and Troye Sivan.
In 2012, Louise created a second channel Sprinkle of Chatter, which has become sort of a personal vlog and lifestyle advice outlet for her. She continues to dole out advices on fashion and beauty on her main channel, but her second channel deals with more personal stuff like relationships. While the main channel has over 2.25 million subscribers, her second channel has amassed around 1.2 million subscribers.
Louise has gone on several tours around the UK and the world, promoting her channel and meeting with her fans. She has also been interviewed by several media outlets. Louise Pentland has always been a staunch feminist, something that she has made very clear in her interviews.
In July 2015, Louise published her first book titled Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter with Simon & Schuster Publishing. The book is about little tips and tricks about living a better and more fulfilling life, created with Louise’s own life experiences. She followed this literary debut with another book in the same year titled Sprinkle of Glitter 2016 Diary: Have the Best Year of Your Life, a sort of collection of her life stories and experiences. Her debut novel Wilde Like Me: Your Ultimate Feel-Good Summer Read was published in June 2017. The book introduced her readers to a fictional character named Robin Wilde.
