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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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 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  ...

Festivals, Blogging and Life Lately – Lindsey Lou Blogs

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 –  ...

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. I personally feel that my course provided me with more than just an  ...

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  ...

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  ...

Escape to The Highlands – The Lookbook

  This weekend, my mum, my sister and I decided to book up a last minute trip to the highlands – and man, last minute plans really are the best kind of plans. Over the past few weeks I have been spending crazy amounts of time glued to my computer screen between work, blogging and Netflix binging (no regrets), therefore this little last minute getaway was the perfect way to detox in a digital free zone. Glencoe is probably my favourite highland hideaway, its mountain views are  ...

As a long time viewer and huge fan of both Manny and Jeffree I was absolutely over the moon when the two revealed that they were  ...

The Digital Spring Clean

Yep, believe it or not Spring is well and truly here.  Whilst I’m not completely into the whole routine of the traditional spring clean, one thing I can get on board with is a digital declutter. After all, all of those emails and random “untitled” files ain’t gonna sort themselves out. For quite a while now I have felt that my digital space has been a little too busy with unnecessary junk files, overflowing emails and more so what better time to have a little clear out?

The £5 H&M Belt You Need in Your Life.

Have you been swooning over THAT Gucci belt? I’m pretty sure you’re not the only one. However, it seems that H&M have come to save the day! For a good few months now the Gucci double G belt has been floating around my Instagram feed (taunting me) and has been a firm favourite amongst some of my favourite style bloggers. The belt itself has a very minimal design – with its plain black band and iconic branded buckle. However, I feel that its simplistic nature is the very  ...

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  ...
