KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I am super excited to share some new Friday Finds with you! It's a bit of a mix, as we all seem to be anticipating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas all at once now. Though I'm trying my hardest to live in the moment with pumpkins and autumn decor. I know after Halloween, everyone will be all about Christmas, but we should slow down and enjoy the harvest decor up to Thanksgiving, don't you think? As always, there are a few printables in the mix for last-minute decor, as well as some products for my fellow wine lovers, and some more awesome discounts that were created just for you Friday Finds readers!! 🙂🍂 So you know the drill, grab a cup of coffee and sit down for a break, so you can relax and browse these amazing shops.


First let's kick things off with this week's featured candle. I just have to feature a candle each week. It's the perfect season to cozy up with a good book and flickering candle light. A scented candle is also th…

Sponsored: The Dos & Don'ts of Online Dating

Do use a casual and current picture that was taken in a natural setting and that was taken in-the-moment.
Don't use a professional photo for your profile picture. It may come across as misleading, and even worse, may cause a date to be disappointed when they meet you in person.

Do include a full-body shot. Head shots can sometimes be very deceiving in regards to a person's weight.
Don't include a full-body shot that is too revealing. If you are looking for a meaningful relationship, the last thing you want to do is attract the wrong kind of attention by showing too much skin.

Do keep your standards in reality.
Don't think of online dating as an a la carte menu. No one person is going to possess every single quality you want.

Do have a specific idea of what you want. You should have some non-negotiables in mind, like must be family oriented, must love to travel, must have strong values.
Don't make your non-negotiable list too long. Limit yourself to five or less.

Do keep in mind your life on a daily basis when listing your hobbies and interests.
Don't list skiing, skydiving and snorkling as your hobbies if you've done those things only once on a vacation you took five years ago. The goal is to find someone who has similar interests on a day-to-day basis.

Do take your time getting to know someone before meeting them in person.
Don't rush into a first date. And always put safety first by meeting in a public place and not divulging too much personal information up front.

Above all, make sure you pick the right dating sight for you. Most sites charge a monthly fee, so you want to make sure you're getting the best value for your money. You'll find a comparison of the best dating sites on Consumer-Rankings.com. They list the top five dating sites of 2012 and compare them in several different ways. Each site is given an overall rating, summary, description of existing membership and a detailed summary. If you are looking for someone special  but find yourself too busy to get out and meet people, it's worth trying an online dating site. Just make sure you choose the site that is right for you.

  1. Be genuine. There's no "fake it til you make it" in love, whether online or in the real world.

  4. These are all really good advice. We're often so afraid that someone won't like us if they see the real person - bad way to start a relationship.
