Well hello there everybody. How have your weeks been?

I’ve decided to keep putting up my Famous Five blogs on a Saturday so that I can focus on some posts that are a bit more chatty come Sunday. I hope that’s ok with you guys… Plus it means I get to wish y’all a spiffing weekend at the start of it, rather than mid-way through. Makes sense, non?

Five favourites

Place: The cinema. G and I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy the other day and it was the first time that I’d been to the cinema in ages. And I’d forgotten how ace it is. The film was great, the popcorn was delicious and I genuinely had a ruddy excellent evening.

Food: I rediscovered the Marks and Spencer Extremely Chocolatey Orange Biscuits recently which is great news for me but not such great news for my waistline…

Experience: Is it weird if I put the cinema again…?!

Read/watch: I’ve been watching one helluva lot of YouTube videos recently – even more so than usual! – in an attempt to gear myself up to make some videos myself (you can see my first few vlogging attempts here if you’re interested!) and I’m really enjoying discovering some new vloggers in the process. For example – and I’m know behind the times here – how great are the Shaytards? What a bloody great family and their channel provides something a bit different from my usual beauty videos.

Beauty bit: I’m currently trying out the new YSL Fusion Ink Foundation and I’m really rather enjoying it. The jury is still out on a final verdict but keep your eye out for a full review sometime next week.

Have a good weekend everyone and don’t forget to follow me over on Instagram @CharlieLanks!
