* make up bag of dreams *

I know, I know. Last week I was all ‘oh I’m going to be such a good blogger this week’ and then I completely failed to upload regularly. BUT, rather than make excuses, I’m just here to tell you that I’m back in business, I’m ready to roll and I promise things are going to pick up around these here parts. Honest honest!

And to those of you who have stuck around during the quiet times, here’s to you, thanks for hanging on!

Five favourites

Place: IKEA! I made a trip there on Saturday and had the best time ever. I even picked up a new Alex in which to stash all my make-up.

Food: IKEA meatballs. Say what you want about them but I think they’re delicious.

Experience: My first Manhattan driving experience. Terrifying, yes, particularly in a ruddy U-Haul van, but some of it was actually quite fun.

Read/watch: I’ve moved onto yet another Jilly Cooper novel, this time it’s The Man Who Made Husbands JealousSo so good.

Beauty bit: An oldie but a goodie – Elizabeth and James Nirvana White EDPIt’s pretty much the only scent that I”ve been reaching for in recent weeks and its heady floral notes are the perfect accompaniment to the warmer weather.

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

    That sunset is stunning!

    And I can’t even start to imagine how terrifying yet exhiliriating that drive must have been!
