WHAT’S ON MY PHONE?

Do you ever wonder what apps people have on their phones? Because I do. I’m definitely more curious since starting blogging because I follow so many people who claim to only use their phones and I guess I want to try and get the most out of mine. Obviously, I’m only going to be including…

LAMORA EYESHADOW BRUSHES.

I’ve been looking for a reasonably priced full set of eyeshadow brushes for a while since I don’t have one for every purpose and I just have a mismatch of Real Techniques and random unbranded brushes, which are pretty crap – the unbranded ones, not the RT. I took to Amazon because I bought a…

FEELIN’ AUTUMNAL.

I did my makeup for the first time since July and I was shocked at how well it came out… I was expecting a train wreck, but honestly, I felt so good about myself – I had my hair cut a few days ago, I really loved my outfit and my makeup went well! So,…

LATJ IS 1! Q&A + GET TO KNOW ME.

So, Life According to Jade turned 1 a few days ago (I missed the actual day because I swore it was the 16th, but clearly I was wrong)! I have officially had this blog for a year – that’s crazy to me! ___ Q & A  Since I knew it was coming up to it…

AUGUST BLOG POSTS.

Apologies for being a few days late with August’s posts, we’ve all been hit by our first cold of the season this past week and it’s been a bad one! We’re just starting to get over it, but we’re all still feeling pretty crappy. I hope August has been good to you all! Here are…

MY WARDROBE WISHLIST.

I cleared my wardrobe out a few weeks ago and I realised that most of my clothes follow the same colour scheme and those that didn’t, I threw out – ready to donate. Looking at what pieces are left in my wardrobe (above), I think I’ve finally figured out what my style is. It’s very…

THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU’RE HAVING A BAD DAY.

You know those morning when you wake up and even though nothing has even had a chance to happen, you just feel like utter crap? It happens to us all and here’s what I do on those days: FIGURE OUT IF THERE IS A REASON FOR FEELING THAT WAY Did you have an argument with…

MY UNIVERSITY EXPERIENCE.

With September and the beginning of a new academic year fast approaching I thought I’d share my honest university experience with you all. Before I start, I’d like to warn you all that it wasn’t a particularly good one and to insert a trigger warning. This post talks about depression and self-harm so if you’re sensitive…

ALL OF MY NON BEAUTY/FASHION POSTS SO FAR.

Since I have decided to move away from beauty being the main focus of this blog, I thought that I would make a post containing links to all of my non beauty related posts to date – including those that have been posted since I made that decision. If you haven’t seen that post yet,…

A NEW DIRECTION.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll have seen that I’ve been feeling really disheartened about my blog – again! Any time I post something that isn’t beauty related, it never does very well. And I know, I know… blogging isn’t about numbers but the non-beauty posts are some of my favourites to write as…

BATISTE VS. AUSSIE 

For as long as I’ve been using dry shampoo, Batiste has been my go-to brand – mainly because it is the most accessible to me. That doesn’t necessarily mean that I prefer it over other brands or that it works wonders for me. In all honestly, the only other brands I’ve tried are the own…

PIERCINGS & TATTOOS I USED TO WANT.

Back in June, I saw Amanda Jayne’s post about tattoos that she used to want and instantly I was like “why haven’t I thought to do a post like that yet?” so… here it is! ___ I’ve always been a lover of piercings and tattoos. Whenever I saw somebody who was heavily pierced/tattooed when I…
