Now that’s what I call December : Week 1

As far as weeks go, this one has been pretty fab! So naturally I thought I would blog a little bit about it. As I will not be participating in Blogmas this month (how do you people do it?), I thought that it might be nice to publish a little “Week in the life of” post – highlighting a handful of the best bits from the past seven days. I really enjoy reading this type of content so I thought it would be pretty cool to share my own take. If you fancy having a little nosy into my week  ...

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  ...

Christmas Gifting with T2

As sad as I am that Autumn is well and truly over, there is definitely something pretty magical about this time of year. From festive party nights to winter gift-giving, the lead up to Christmas has always been one of my favourite times of the year. However, as the winter weeks pass, frosty car scraping mornings and icy dark evenings seem to become all too familiar. Around this time of year, you will most likely find me wrapped up in a zillion layers and drinking copious amounts of toasty  ...

So long, October

So today is the last day of October? Surely this has got to be some sort of drill? I don’t think I’m quite ready to say goodbye to pumpkins and crispy autumn leaves just yet. As you may know today also marks the final day of my Blogtober week-daily upload challenge. Over the past few weeks I have had so much fun creating new and exciting content for my blog and have quite honestly surprised myself with how much I can achieve when I really make the most of my time. Whilst drafting up my  ...

5 Sunday Rituals to make Mondays less… Monday.

Ahh Monday, we meet again! Like most people, the thought of that dreaded Monday morning alarm can sometimes seem a little bit daunting. Especially when you have a busy week ahead and a million and one things on your to-do list. For me, the past few weeks have been pretty hectic between blogging more regularly, working a few extra hours and seeing to general life admin (oh, and maintaining some sort of social life). However, I am a big believer of the old cliché a Sunday well spent brings a  ...

Blogger Productivity Tips and Tricks

For me, checking all of my to-do list boxes and feeling as though I have achieved a lot in a day has to be one of the best feelings ever. Throughout my time at university, I learned that you can almost always achieve a lot more in a day than you initially expect. The past month has really reinforced this thought for me. As you may have read, throughout September, I was struck by a flu that completely drained me of energy and led me to feel a little demotivated in the old blogging  ...

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  ...

Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Bun Recipe

For me, this month has been about challenging myself and trying out new content. As you may have spotted, last week I published my DIY pumpkin spice recipe post – which was the first of its kind on my blog. Although I thoroughly enjoyed writing and photographing the post, I wasn’t completely sure how appealing this would be to my audience. However, to my absolute delight, it seems that it actually went down pretty well and has quickly become one of my most viewed posts ..ever! Who’d  ...

Autumn Sounds

Now that Autumn is well and truly in full swing, there is a definite nip in the air and mornings seem to be getting darker by the day. For me, this makes early rises and chilly commutes that little bit more painful. I mean, heading to work when it is still dark out just doesn’t seem fair right? However, as a music obsessive, I believe that a good playlist can really work wonders for morale. From the Monday-est of Mondays to chilliest of mornings, having a sweet mixtape at the ready  ...

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.  ...

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  ...

The Coffee Lover’s Gift Guide

Today, October 1st is International Coffee day – woo! As a barista and all round caffeine fiend, it is safe to say that I am pretty obsessed with the stuff. From late night dissertation writing sessions to early morning red-eye flights – we’ve been through a lot together. Therefore, today I thought that I would dedicate this post to my bff beverage and create a mini gift guide for those who love coffee as much as I do.  Whether you are looking to treat yo self or pick up a  ...
