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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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.  ...

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!

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  ...

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  ...

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. Is this what they mean by adult-ing? Anyway, I have really enjoyed educating myself about various ingredients and trying out new lotions and potions. 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  ...

Ch ch ch Changes.

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.  ...

Loreal Pure Clay Glow Mask Review

Pure Clay Glow Mask As mentioned in a few of my previous  posts I have really been enjoying trying out new skincare bits recently, especially specialised treatments like serums and masks. 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  ...

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  ...

Bourjois Volume Reveal Mascara

Back in the day, I was all about that Bourjois clubbing mascara /spider lashes look, however I can’t remember the last time I purchased any sort of eye product from the brand. I have so much love for their foundations and CC creams, I actually feel that they’re the best in the drugstore. However, I never seem to gravitate their counter when it comes to eye products. Recently whilst browsing the Bourjois counter in Boots, I stumbled across their new Volume Reveal Mascara and have pretty much  ...

Top Barcelona Eats.

Last week, my sister and I visited Barcelona for the very first time. During our stay, we absolutely fell in love with the city and everything that it had to offer. As a total foodie, I was amazed at its abundance of wacky and wonderful eateries, so much so that I feel they deserve their very own appreciation post.  We visited so many brunch spots, cafes and gelaterias throughout our trip, however there were a few stand out favourites .

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  ...
