KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

Summer Hostess Gifts Under $40

Never show up at someone else's house empty-handed; that is what my mom taught me from a very young age. Hostess gifts tend to be more common during the holidays, but if you're attending a summer party, don't forget your etiquette. A hostess has to clean, organize, cook, then clean up afterward. Hosting a party takes work and money, so it's always important to bring a hostess gift as a proper way to say thank you. The gift doesn't mean bringing a bottle of wine for the meal. If you're bringing a dessert or drinks for the party, you still need to bring a little gift that is just for the hostess.
A popular type of gift to bring a hostess is something she can use for future entertaining. Just like with any gift, it's best to choose something that is functional but is also a luxury item that the recipient might not buy for herself.


You don't need to spend a lot of money on a hostess gift. Twenty dollars is a good average for how much to spend on a gift for a party host. If it's a casual barbecue hosted by a friend, you can spend $10 to $20 on the gift. If you're attending a formal summer party with a sit-down dinner, you should work your way up from $20.00. Personally, I'd never spend more than $50 on a hostess gift. Here are some great options for summer hostess gifts under $40.00.
