Forever in Blue Jeans

For me, 2017 has been the year of Personal style. As a huge fashion lover, I have followed print and digital fashion publications from a very young age. I have always had a keen interest in reading about the latest trend pieces and seasonal style predictions. However, even with all the outfit inspiration under the sun, I found it extremely difficult to refine my very own personal style. This was until I stumbled upon The Curated Closet. The Curated Closet by Anushka Rees is a style guide  ...

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  ...

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’! So far, A/W 2017 has been filled with an abundance of exciting new beauty launches from the Rihanna’s fab Fenti line to Loreal’s beautiful Balmain collaboration. 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  ...

My Autumn Fashion Picks

If you haven’t already guessed from my abundance of autumnal themed posts, Autumn / Winter is definitely my favourite time of the year. Living in Scotland, I feel like we sort of get a bit of a bum deal when it comes to summer. Every year we buy sandals and sundresses in hopes of a few toasty days – or maybe even a week of ‘em. However, realistically those sunny days are very few and far between. Don’t get me wrong, Glasgow is my favourite place in the whole world. However, I can’t  ...

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  ...

My Personal Style Journey – An Update

As a huge fashion lover, I love reading pretty much anything style related from outfit of the day blog posts to articles on seasonal trends and high street fashion finds. However, over the past few years, I have become increasingly intrigued by the idea of personal style and how it can be defined. Since my teens, I have always had a rough idea of the general vibe I like to go for. However reading “The Curated Closet” by the wonderful Anuschka Rees has really helped me to define  ...

Festivals, Blogging and Life Lately – Lindsey Lou Blogs

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! Today I thought I would have a good old fashioned chit chat with you and fill you in on what I’ve been up to lately. 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  ...

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. As you may have read in my most recent post, I am a huge music lover and have dreamed of attending this legendary event for years. From a young age I have watched the highlights on T.V, read all the music press headlines and felt the fomo (big time) as festival goers shared their snaps online. However, on the 22nd of June 2017, my awesome friend Lottie and  ...

Soundtrack to Summer 2017

With festival season right around the corner, I have been listening to more new music than ever. There really is nothing better than a good playlist, am I right? Although I tend to post a lot of fashion and beauty related content to my blog, I am also a huge music lover. So much so that I spent four years at college / uni studying the music industry. As a total muso, I have been attending festivals year after year from a young age, however I have a feeling that summer 2017 is gonna be  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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. Although the concept of this is probably foreign to those out with the blogging community, I have always enjoyed taking a peek at what others carry around on the daily.  First things first –  the bag. After spying this little cross body beauty, hanging in the Aladdin’s cave that is Accessorize, I just  ...

The Digital Spring Clean

Yep, believe it or not Spring is well and truly here.  Whilst I’m not completely into the whole routine of the traditional spring clean, one thing I can get on board with is a digital declutter. After all, all of those emails and random “untitled” files ain’t gonna sort themselves out. For quite a while now I have felt that my digital space has been a little too busy with unnecessary junk files, overflowing emails and more so what better time to have a little clear out? Today I thought I  ...

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  ...

Instagram Food Tour of Glasgow

As mentioned in my recent update, my lovely friend Lottie came to  visit during the month of January. Whilst there is nothing I love more than showing visitors around my hometown and favourite city, sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming – there is just so much to see! As huge foodies,  I couldn’t wait to take her on a mini food tour of the city’s amazing cafes and eateries. Whilst thinking of my favourite spots, I found myself scrolling through my Instagram feed with  ...

Hello everyone! After a pretty hectic – yet amazing start to the new year I am so happy to be writing and posting a little more regularly. Over the past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about future posts and some little tweaks and changes that I will be making over the next few weeks (stay tuned). Don’t worry, I won’t be completely changing my content – just adding a little more variation to my regular posts and discussing topics wider than beauty and fashion.  ...

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  ...

Roadtrips, Uni and Sweet Sounds – Monthly Roundup

Yep, we are now half way through October and like most people I have no idea where 2016 has gone!
