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  ...

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  ...

Now that’s what I call December

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  ...

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  ...

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.  ...

What the Hygge? Homeware Edit

If you are a bit like me and tend to jump on all of the trendy internet bandwagons you may already be aware of the of the term “Hygge”. So what is Hygge? Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga – I think) is a Danish term used to describe an atmosphere/experience – a feeling of coziness, comfort and content. For example, you might experience Hygge whilst listening to some sweet crackling vinyl, or when sipping on a big mug of tea after a long winters day. You might also experience  ...

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

Please forgive me for what I am about to say but… I am not the biggest fan of pumpkin spice lattes. Initially, when Starbucks first released this cult coffee, I bought into the hype and jumped right on that Autumnal bandwagon. However, to be completely honest I really don’t think they are worth the crazy hype and find them to be a little too sweet. So, with this being said, this year I thought I would try my hand at making my very own pumpkin spice inspired winter drink –  one  ...

5 Products for Glowing Skin this Autumn / Winter

Luminous Base Products As much as I love the cold crisp air that accompanies this time of year, during these chilly winter I often find that my skin can look a little… flat.

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  ...

Autumnal Beauty Bits : The Lip Edit

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 Fitness Journey

My Fitness Journey If you have been following me for a while, you will know that fitness is not something I have ever discussed on my blog and to be completely honest, I never thought I would. After trying various (big and scary) commercial gyms in the past I had concluded that working out just wasn’t for me. However, since biting the bullet and signing up for my first ever Bootcamp with AG Fitness earlier this year, my attitude towards fitness and exercise has changed completely.  ...

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.
