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  ...

Cult Beauty Bits to add to you Christmas List

Last Wednesday night I was lucky enough to head to The St. Enoch’s Centre Glasgow’s Christmas press event – oh la la. At the event, I was introduced to some of the centres top fashion and beauty picks for the festive season. From beautiful beauty bits from the likes of Bobby Brown, The Body Shop, Guerlain and more to fab fashion finds from some of the best high street giants, it truly was the ultimate gift giving grotto! Throughout the night we were well and truly spoiled by the  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

5 Inspiring Reads for Bloggers and Creatives

As a blogger and all-round creative type, there is nothing I love more than writing and whipping up fresh content for my blog. However, from time to time I  feel that my creative spark can become a little dim. I think this is something that most bloggers experience now and again. Whenever this happens, one of my favourite ways to refuel my creative juice is to take some time out and have a good read. Throughout my time as a blogger, I have read my fair share of books on digital media and  ...

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!

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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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. 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  ...

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!

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  ...

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.

Loreal Pure Clay Glow Mask Review

Therefore, whenever a drugstore brand releases a new skincare product I am more than keen to get my hands on them. This week, one release which caught my eye was Loreal’s range of Pure Clay masks. The range consists of three masks, which each perform various tasks. The “Purity Mask” is  ...

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  ...
