Detoxing your Wardrobe

Like many people, I would describe myself as a little bit of a hoarder – especially when it comes to clothes. With this in mind, you can only imagine how cluttered my wardrobe can be.  If you are a bit like me, there’s a good chance that there are more than a few pieces lurking in your wardrobe that you haven’t worn since god knows when e.g those disco pants from 2012 (you know the ones). Additionally, you may find that there are also a few pieces in there that no longer  ...

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  ...

Escape to The Highlands – The Lookbook

  This weekend, my mum, my sister and I decided to book up a last minute trip to the highlands – and man, last minute plans really are the best kind of plans. Over the past few weeks I have been spending crazy amounts of time glued to my computer screen between work, blogging and Netflix binging (no regrets), therefore this little last minute getaway was the perfect way to detox in a digital free zone. Glencoe is probably my favourite highland hideaway, its mountain views are  ...

Identifying Personal Style and Building my Dream Wardrobe with “The Curated Closet”

“I Have Nothing to Wear” As a huge lover of all things fashion and lifestyle, I have always enjoyed reading about the latest seasonal trends, searching for style inspo online and picking out “must have” pieces to incorporate into my wardrobe. However, over the past few months I have all too often found myself blankly staring at my overflowing shelves and thinking “I have nothing to wear”. Yes, realistically I have an ABUNDANCE of pieces I could mix and match together  ...

If we were having Coffee…

Over the past week or so I have read so many of these tag posts and have loved hearing everyone’s take, it has been fab to get “behind the screen” and get to know some of my fellow bloggers a little bit better. Today I thought that I would write my very own. To be honest, I have been a little bit out of touch with the old blog recently, so what better way to ease back in than a little coffee catchup? So here goes… If we were having coffee I would tell you that in addition to  ...

The £5 H&M Belt You Need in Your Life.

Have you been swooning over THAT Gucci belt? I’m pretty sure you’re not the only one. However, it seems that H&M have come to save the day! For a good few months now the Gucci double G belt has been floating around my Instagram feed (taunting me) and has been a firm favourite amongst some of my favourite style bloggers. The belt itself has a very minimal design – with its plain black band and iconic branded buckle. However, I feel that its simplistic nature is the very  ...

Winter Lips with ColourPop Cosmetics

Now that Colour Pop are officially shipping to the UK (yayy) I thought that it was about time to place a little order and see what all the hype is about. Although international shipping is relatively new to the site, I did place a small order via a US postage company around this time last year which consisted of a few Lippie Stix, a cream highlighter and a few single eyeshadows. I was mega impressed by the overall quality of the products and so since the release of their popular liquid  ...

Styling with Colour Elements

Colour Elements I have to admit, I for one am more than guilty of looking at my overflowing wardrobe and thinking “I have nothing to wear”. For anyone who has ever experienced this frustration, you will know that the struggle is real. However, over the past few months I have made a conscious effort to be a little more mindful when it comes to clothes shopping. Having read so many interesting articles on the benefits of building a capsule wardrobe, this A/W I will be working towards creating  ...

NYX Ultimate Palette Review

I have to say, NYX have absolutely been slaying the makeup game these days.  I have fallen completely head over heels for the brand and feel that they are constantly releasing consistently great quality, on trend products – and their latest release is no exceptiion.  Over the last year I have been swooning over warm tone neutral eyeshadow palettes so naturally, when I spotted NYX’s contribution, I just about died Whilst browsing in their stand alone store in Barcelona, I  ...

Brows, Brows, Brows!

Over the past year or so, it seems that  everyone and their granny have been on a quest to achieve “on flique” brow status and along the way we have witnessed an abundance of hot new brow releases – from both ends of the beauty brands spectrum. However, with so many options available out there it can all seem a bit mind-boggling. From powders and gels to “pomades”, the options are endless. When it comes to my brows, I tend to go for something a little more natural for  ...

Festivals, Blogging and Big Magic

Well, July has been one hell of a month. This week I thought that I would start writing up a monthly update post discussing all of  the best bits, sort of like a “Now thats what I call music” for each month. So here goes… Updates Festivals SO, July went of to a flying start when I somehow managed to win V.I.P tickets to this years T in park festival for myself and a friend. Our luxury festival experience was definitely like no other and it’ll definitely be something I will always  ...

Blush Pinks and Quirky Prints

Over the past few weeks I have been picking up a few summer bits and bobs from the highstreet and thought it would be cool to share my favourite picks.  As I’m not jetting of on holiday until the end of August I’ve been trying my best to be sensible and  pick up pieces which will work in both rain and shine – even though this season’s beachwear has been extremely tempting!   First Up – The Bomber Jacket I’m not usually one to wear light, pastel  ...

Being a V.I.T at T in the Park

So last week was pretty crazy! As a huge music buff and avid festival goer I found myself experiencing the festival blues knowing that this year I wouldn’t be at one of my favourite festivals – T in the park. I was especially gutted as this years lineup looked incredible and featured my bucket list band – The Stone Roses. However, as the days passed I spied a few competitions flying around on Twitter for T in the Park tickets and thought “why the hell not?! Little  ...
