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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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!

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 –  ...

The Dreamy Stationery Post

September 2017 marks the first year that I will not be returning to any educational institution. To be honest the thought of this is pretty daunting. For some strange reason, I am really missing university at the moment and those post graduation blues have well and truly kicked in. However, there is one particular “back to school” ritual that I  missing the most – stationery shopping. Yep, I have no shame, I am a self-confessed stationary enthusiast / hoarder.  I’m almost  ...

Alpha H Liquid Rose Gold Review

If you are an avid reader of beauty blogs, there’s a good chance that you will have heard about Alpha H’s cult product – Liquid Gold. However, you may not have read a lot about its cooler, chic-er sister product, the Liquid Rose Gold. Typically, any product with “Rose Gold” in the title tends to catch my eye (how very blogger-y of me). I feel like a lot have companies have definitely latched onto the Rose Gold hype over the years, attracting consumers like little  ...

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  ...

Zoella Beauty Jelly and Gelato Review + My Blogiversary!

When I think back to the inspiration behind starting my blog, there is one person that comes to mind. Yep, that’s right, Zoella. Although this may be considered very “cliche” statement, it is oh so very true. From the age of 17, I have read Zoe’s (beautiful) blog and watched her videos. During this time, I have witnessed the inception and growth of her untouchable brand empire. I feel that Zoe is the perfect example of someone who “Believed she could, so she did”. To me, that is  ...

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 Postgraduate Experience

Say hello to Lindsey Lou Master of Science! Yep, last week I graduated from my Master’s degree in Digital Marketing (how crazy)! I really can’t believe that it has been two years since I decided to take the leap and sign up for my postgraduate course. For me, there were a handful of factors which lead to the decision to pursue further education. Now, looking back, this decision was one of the best I have ever made.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Review

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturiser Review I don’t know about you but as I am making my way through my twenties I seem to be more and more intrigued by the world of skincare.

However, there has been one particular release which I have been particularly impressed by.  The Hydro Boost Water Gel by Neutrogena. As a combination to oily skin  ...

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  ...

72 Hours in Copenhagen

As you may have spotted from my latest Instagram posts, a fortnight ago myself and my friend Karen headed to the Copenhagen – the land of cinnamon buns and dreamy interiors for a sneaky birthday getaway. Having previously researched the city, I had an inkling that it would be right up my street and what can I say? It more than lived up to my high expectations. From the city’s beautiful scenery and epic food markets to the laid back, super chilled vibe of its residents, it was  ...

The Ultimate Quick Fix Skincare Menu

When it comes to skincare, finding products that work for your complexion can sometimes feel like looking for a needle in a haystack.  With so many new lotions and potions on the market – all promising “perfect” skin, it can be difficult to seek out the products that actually work. Testing skincare can also be pretty tricky as there are so many variables that can affect your skin at any given time. Additionally,  with the application of each new product comes a “purging” period. This  ...

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.

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.  ...

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Split Review

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  ...
