Why Do You Blog?

A question I seem to internally ask myself daily is 'why do you blog?'. I started my blog over a year ago now, and I've never looked back. I'd read blogs for well over two years at that point and I figured 'what the heck, let's give it a go'. A fair few breaks later and well I think I might have found my groove (cringing so hard at that word) and I feel more motivated than ever to just happily blog. Get comfy, because this could be a long one.

Simple Soap | The Perfect Makeup Brush Cleanser

Brush cleaning is something we all loathe doing but is entirely necessary. None of us want bad skin now do we? Baby shampoo really used to be the only thing I considered using and every time I used it my brushes just didn't feel quite clean. When everyone swears by something and you can't get on board with the idea, don't you feel like a black sheep?

When you're wearing pretty underwear it's almost a given that it's going to be a good day. Bralettes are the perfect bridge for lovely looking undergarments while also being amazingly comfy. I'm talking about the 'am I wearing a bra?' comfy.

Some Sort of a Haircare Routine

Have you ever noticed around these parts there's really nothing featured to do with hair? I'm honest with you guys, so I don't cower when I say that other than washing my hair featuring the occasional conditioner, I don't really have a hair care routine. I can hear you tutting from behind your screen. It's all going to be okay though, cause I'm now making a conscious effort to actually do something with my hair.

Original or Waterproof? Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner

I don't truly feel like Jodie without a slick of eyeliner in the morning. It's a skill I've perfected and often get asked how to do. The answer to that is a whole other blog post (let me know if you want a post like that). Now if you've seen my review of the Fast Stroke eyeliner, you'll know how much I love it, so when I saw they had a waterproof formula, my hand may have uncontrollably put it into my basket without a second thought.

A Halloween Wishlist

The build up to Halloween is rather magical, quite like Christmas almost and with less than a week away, I thought what better way to get in the spirit of things than by creating a wishlist. Now I don't drink alcohol and because all my friends have moved away for university, there's no parties for me, but that doesn't mean I can't have a little fun right? If you follow me on Twitter, then you'll remember me wishing as soon as October hit, I wanted all the Halloween clothing to be out. Thankfully the Halloween gods heard my prayers and delivered some pretty things I can't wait to get my hands on (probably in the sale though because my camera wiped me out) and potentially wear all year.

Bedside Beauty

There are some things in my life that have a solid routine, like my skincare. It happens AM and PM without fail and if I skip it I feel very angry with myself. A routine I'm trying to incorporate into my life is one I like to call the 'Bedside Beauty' routine.

A dupe of Benefit Roller Lash?

A claim made by everyone who has tried Lash Sensational by Maybelline is that it's a pretty decent dupe for the Benefit mascara that is Rollerlash. You know what I'm not seeing though, comparison posts. In an attempt to change that I thought I'd give you my two pennies worth on, possibly, the most talked about dupe of this year.

Jumping on the Bandwagon | Tweezerman Tweezers

Does anyone else resist a hyped up product just because? You all probably know the spiel about Tweezerman tweezers and how they're hailed as the best tweezers out there, but you know when you just don't believe the hype because there's just to much of it? Well your girl finally went and gave in.

Saving my Bacon

Me and my skin just haven't been getting along lately, blemish after blemish it just kept getting worse. I upped my skincare and well, my skin decided to do the same.

Eye Priming It | Budget to High End

While jodie loue is somewhat of a budget based beauty blog, I do sometimes like to splurge a little. Mainly on skincare, but the odd makeup product manages to slip through to.

Batiste or Colab

dry shampoo

Dry Shampoo is as vital as food for me. I have next to no volume in my hair and my roots like to be a little bit oily. The idea of washing my hair every day also doesn't feel right for me, so for the in between days, I NEED dry shampoo.

Topshop Wishlist

Topshop Wishlist

Finally, a wishlist is on this blog! I've been meaning to do one for what feels like forever, and I won't bore you with excuses for why it's taken so long.

A mini Lush Haul

Lush seems to be everyone's favourite shop once Autumn hits, and for this girl, it's no exception. While I was in Chester I thought it would be rude not to hit up the local Lush shop and see what goodies I can find.

A Two Year Love Affair | La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +

french skincare

The marmite product of the beauty world has to be the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +. It either works for your skin or doesn't and the only way to find out is to use it. From the title you can probably guess it works for me and when I'm in a bit of a skin rut, this is my saviour.

A Life & Blog Update

life update, blog update, general update, blogger update

If you're vigilant enough then you might know already that the new post every two days I promised, hasn't been, well, kept up with. I could lie and say I've been busy and my life is brimming to the top with exciting things but it's simply not true.
