Excuse us if we seem a little distracted, but we just realised it’s May, and it’s kind of thrown us a bit.
And as if that wasn’t enough, we’re still not sure if we should be wearing our winter coats or our summer gear. Do we want to build a snowman, or are we cool for the summer? (Are Frozen references still cool, or will we get a… wait for it… frosty reception?)
Ok, we’ll stop. And just show you some videos instead, mmkay?
Things We Do In Bars – Laurbubble
Laura Bubble has gathered up her new NextUp pals to help her make this video talking about all the things we do in bars, and once again it’s oh-so-true. We all love the inexplicable comfort of a booth seat, and we too are self-confessed snack guzzlers. Which, for the record, is a great phrase!
Now, where do we sign up for the School of Chocolate Box Self-Control? Not for us, obviously. Asking for a friend…
10 Best Uses Of Peanut Butter – Raphael Gomes
As if Laura’s bar snack chat wasn’t enough, Raphael Gomes has decided to make us even hungrier with not one, not two, but TEN peanut butter recipes. We’re definitely peanut butter addicts over at TenEighty HQ, so if we go quiet it’s PROBABLY because we’re making ourselves some peanut butter popcorn and ice cream. Mmmm.
Spoiler alert: you’ll need some peanut butter. Also, we’ve heard “peanut butter” too many times, and now it just sounds weird…
April | Cramps – Redheadabroad
Folks, we’ve got another PMSer in town! Erika Felton is a British/Australian YouTuber, living in China and (spoiler alert) moving to London soon. We’ve been loving Erika’s take on the PMS series for a while, so we’re ever so slightly bending our UK-and-Ireland rules to sneak her in this round-up (and might be bending rules even further in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled!).
April’s cramps feature music from Hamilton, 12 stages of watching The Walking Dead, some very pretty views, and so much more. Including a giant purple teddy bear. How could you not want to watch after that?
Men Try Women’s Products – Hannah Leigh
We’re back on the NextUp train again, and this time we’re with Hannah Leigh! She’s been rounding up all the male NextUp winners, and seeing if they can figure out what women’s products do.
We had a good ol’ giggle at the confusion on these guys’ faces as they were met with hair things, face things, boob things, and, well, other things. And while we don’t want to laugh at someone else’s struggle, we just can’t help ourselves. Sorry, guys!
The Sound – The 1975: Shaun Reynolds
We’re well aware that we still can’t move without seeing another cover of The 1975, but if people keep making them, then, well, we’ll keep watching!
Shaun Reynolds has done a great cover of The Sound, which we’ve been absolutely loving this week, and it comes with a very swish video to boot. We are definitely not complaining.
Need a bit more? Go on then…
Dan Bull has, in his own words, done a lot of complaining about copyright and Content ID on his channel – quite rightly, as there have been a lot of issues with it – and YouTube invited him into their HQ to talk about it.
If you’ve managed to get through the week without hearing that Adrian Bliss is going to be back on our phone/iPad/computer screens with Vlune, well, where have you been? We managed to ask Adrian a couple of questions about his upcoming project too, and we are EXCITED.
