She wore Rouge Velvet…

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas, well, actually it has looked a lot like Christmas since mid-October but you get the idea. I swear the lead up to the festive season seems to begin earlier as the years go by. As I mentioned in my previous winter beauty post, around this time of year I tend to have a little reshuffle of my makeup bag. For me, this usually results in switching out nude lip shades for winterberry tones. I also tend to substitute my current foundation with  ...

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! Over the past few months I have come to realise that styling flatlays for my posts is actually one of my favourite blogging duties! Luckily for me, it seems that you guys also love these snaps as much as I do which is pretty fab! Recently, I have been totally overwhelmed by the love that my my photos have received. I’ve also had quite few requests for a post on how I style my snaps.  ...

Autumnal Beauty Bits : The Lip Edit

As an all-around beauty obsessive, it’s no surprise that one of my favourite things about the changing of the seasons is Autumnal makeup.

This season on the blog, I have decided to create a mini makeup series dedicated to my go-to autumnal beauty bits. Within this series, I will be sharing my ultimate favourite lip shades, eyeshadows, and base products to use at this  ...

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  ...

July Favourites and a Quick Catchup Upon browsing through some of my most recent blog posts, I came to realise that I haven’t written many “catch up” style updates in a while – and those are my favourite posts to write!

I also have a handful of fab product favourites that I would love to share with you. So, let’s get to it! Life Lately  ...

10 Beauty Products I will always Repurchase

With more products available than ever before and shiny new beauty bits being released on the daily, shopping for makeup and skincare can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. Therefore, prior to purchasing,  I tend to ask for recommendations from friends and search for reviews online. I love hearing about the products that people use and love. I’m also especially intrigued by the products that they repurchase time and time again. I feel like this says a lot about a product –  ...

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. However, although I’ve been posting for one year, I have actually been reading blogs for a lot longer. Therefore, creating my very own has been something that I have always wanted to do, and boy am I glad I did! Over the past year, I have documented some pretty cool life events from attending my bucket  ...

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  ...

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Review

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturiser Review I don’t know about you but as I am making my way through my twenties I seem to be more and more intrigued by the world of skincare. Is this what they mean by adult-ing? Anyway, I have really enjoyed educating myself about various ingredients and trying out new lotions and potions. However, there has been one particular release which I have been particularly impressed by.  The Hydro Boost Water Gel by Neutrogena. As a combination to oily skin  ...

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  ...

Jeffree Star X Manny MUA Eclipse Skin Frost Review

Jeffree Star X Manny MUA Eclipse Skin Frost If you haven’t already heard about this particular release or are new to the Jeffree Star Cosmetics brand, earlier this month Youtube beauty gurus Manny (MUA) Gutierrez and Jeffree Star teamed up to release their very own collaboration line which consisted of two liquid lip shades and one (swoonworthy) highlighter. As a long time viewer and huge fan of both Manny and Jeffree I was absolutely over the moon when the two revealed that they were  ...

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Split Review

As you may know I recently visited the U.S to do some travelling, and well, for me a trip to America is never complete without a sneaky peek in Sephora. As I am attempting to slimline my beauty drawer, prior to entering the store I had just a few products on my my wish list and at the very top was Becca’s Champagne Pop highlighter. Since the release of champagne pop and Jaclyn Hill’s collaboration line I have read so many rave reviews about the products and have been intrigued as to what I  ...

Back to Uni “One and Done” Beauty.

For most people out there, late nights and early rises will become the norm whilst studying at university. As a student myself, this means that I am always on the lookout for quick and easy beauty products which speed up my morning routine and ensure that I am out the door and on that 9am train. As part of my “University Life” series , I thought I would write up a little beauty post featuring my favourite “one and done” beauty bits which are my absolute saviours when  ...

Don’t Kill my Vibe.

    SO, if you had talked to me a few years ago about the power of positive thinking, I probably would have silently judged you and thought you were a bit deluded. I distinctly remember one of my favourite teachers from school hosting a screening of “The Secret” and claiming that it was an amazing / inspirational watch. Of course, my class mates and I went along – but only for the free popcorn and sweets. However, since this seed was planted way back in 2012, I’ve really  ...

Tips for Travel Planning : The USA Edit

  1. Plan Plan Plan! – The more research you do when planning a trip the more sights you can see and money you can save! 2. Booking.com –  When booking hotels and hostels, use Booking.com. This site allows you to reserve your room and pay on the day of arrival, this especially handy when making a group booking as everyone can simply pay their share when you arrive. 3. Hostels are your friend! –  Hostels are great for meeting other travellers and can be a really inexpensive alternative  ...
