Nothing’s gonna touch you in these Golden Years

So, it’s that time of year again where we reminisce about everything we’ve been up to over the past twelve months (yep you guessed it, this is another “Year in Review” post). Personally, I just love this time of year – although I’m not quite sure why. Perhaps it is the thought of a fresh new slate – new year, new me and all that or maybe it is simply the idea of picking up a fresh new journal with all of the trimmings … I’m leaning  ...

Best of Beauty 2017

Over the past week or so I have admittedly spent quite a lot of time catching up on some of my favourite Youtube channels (whilst finishing off the last of the Christmas Quality Street, of course).  Lately, I have really been enjoying watching everyone’s “Best of Beauty, 2017” roundups, I just love hearing about other people’s holy grail beauty bits. These videos have also prompted me to think a lot about the products that I have used and loved over the past twelve  ...

Dreamy Teas and Heavenly Haircare

Ahhh…yes. It is that time of the month again where I ramble on about how quickly the year seems to be passing. But really though, how is it almost November already? I for one am in no way ready for the Scottish winter weather just yet! The past few weeks have been super busy (and exciting) for me both blog-wise and in real life. Maybe time does pass quicker when you’re having fun eh? This month I also seem to have discovered quite a few fabby products from beauty bits to dreamy  ...

Autumn / Winter Skincare Saviours

During the winter months with chilly days and cold air, I feel that my skin begins to lack two things – luminosity and hydration. Therefore, as I mentioned in my recent glowing skin post – I tend to switch up my beauty routine accordingly. Over the years I have come to realise that having a good base to work with makes makeup application a breeze. It also makes me feel that bit more confident on non-makeup days too.  As I have just recently switched up my skincare routine, I  ...

Flatlay Styling Tips and Tricks

If you follow me over on Instagram, you will probably already know that I love a good flatlay… or ten!

I’ve also had quite few requests for a post on how I style my snaps.  ...

Lets talk about Goals, baby.

As with a lot of things in life from fitness levels to career advancement, I believe that goal setting is extremely important. I really feel that it is crucial to have a plan – or at least a rough outline of what you would like to achieve and exactly how you will go about this. I am a bit of a Monica Geller, can you tell? Personally, I find that setting goals really motivates me to work that little bit harder and challenge myself. I also find that setting targets and goals can be a  ...

Barry M Fall in Love Palette Review

Barry M Fall in Love As I have mentioned in previous posts, when it comes to autumnal beauty products, I just can’t get enough of em’!

However, over the past few weeks, there has been one product that particulalry caught my eye – The Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. Upon first spotting press  ...

Behind the Blog

While I have been blogging now for around a year and a half. I have come to realise that I haven’t actually talked all that much about … myself. Here on Lindsey Lou Blogs, you will find beauty recommendations, travel diaries and foodie finds galore, but I don’t think I’ve ever really introduced myself. As I am challenging myself to blog every weekday this month (what have I signed myself up for), I thought it would be nice to firstly chat a little bit about my life. I personally love  ...

Bloggers Guilt and Silver Linings

As you may have spotted on my Instagram or Twitter, over the past few weeks I have been plagued by some sort of demon super flu. I don’t usually get colds or sickness bugs all that often but when I do they seem to come with full force. First came a few days of sickness and fever, then two weeks of sinus headaches and congestion. Three weeks on and I am finally beginning to see the light of this never-ending virus of doom (ok that is a tad dramatic). Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is  ...

The Dreamy Stationery Post

September 2017 marks the first year that I will not be returning to any educational institution. To be honest the thought of this is pretty daunting. For some strange reason, I am really missing university at the moment and those post graduation blues have well and truly kicked in. However, there is one particular “back to school” ritual that I  missing the most – stationery shopping. Yep, I have no shame, I am a self-confessed stationary enthusiast / hoarder.  I’m almost  ...

Alpha H Liquid Rose Gold Review

If you are an avid reader of beauty blogs, there’s a good chance that you will have heard about Alpha H’s cult product – Liquid Gold. However, you may not have read a lot about its cooler, chic-er sister product, the Liquid Rose Gold. Typically, any product with “Rose Gold” in the title tends to catch my eye (how very blogger-y of me). I feel like a lot have companies have definitely latched onto the Rose Gold hype over the years, attracting consumers like little  ...

Advice to my Younger Self – Blogger Edition

So, as you may have read in my latest post, this month marks my 1 year Blogiversary. How crazy! It feels like yesterday that I purchased by domain and hit publish on my very first post.

Therefore, creating my very own has been something that I have always wanted to do, and boy am I glad I did!

Zoella Beauty Jelly and Gelato Review + My Blogiversary!

When I think back to the inspiration behind starting my blog, there is one person that comes to mind. Yep, that’s right, Zoella. Although this may be considered very “cliche” statement, it is oh so very true. From the age of 17, I have read Zoe’s (beautiful) blog and watched her videos. During this time, I have witnessed the inception and growth of her untouchable brand empire. I feel that Zoe is the perfect example of someone who “Believed she could, so she did”. To me, that is  ...

Not Your Average Beauty Box – Introducing Tili

When it comes to beauty boxes, I have some mixed feelings. On one hand, I love the idea of receiving a stash of magical mystery items as it allows me to try out new products and brands. However, on the other hand,  I really enjoy having a sneak peek at the products I will be receiving (and paying for). This helps to avoid potential disappointment and eliminates the surprise of crazy wild card beauty bits like neon yellow nail polishes or multi coloured mascaras. Ain’t nobody got time  ...

My Glastonbury Experience 2017 – Review and Photo Diary

Glastonbury Photo Diary 2017 So, last weekend I made my way to Worthy Farm to tick off my top bucket list festival – Glastonbury.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation Review

The Ultimate Quick Fix Skincare Menu

When it comes to skincare, finding products that work for your complexion can sometimes feel like looking for a needle in a haystack.  With so many new lotions and potions on the market – all promising “perfect” skin, it can be difficult to seek out the products that actually work. Testing skincare can also be pretty tricky as there are so many variables that can affect your skin at any given time. Additionally,  with the application of each new product comes a “purging” period. This  ...

What’s In My Bag?

In celebration of picking up this faux croc bag of dreams over the weekend, I thought it would be pretty cool to write up a little  old school style “Whats in my bag?” post.
