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.

Spice Up Your Pancakes for Fall

 

My daughters and I love making pancakes for a weekend brunch, especially during fall. Though don't get me wrong, I rarely make them entirely from scratch. I do love to bake and cook homemade, but I don't want to spend all weekend doing it. Still that doesn't mean we sacrifice on flavor, not one bit. This weekend we added ground cinnamon, nutmeg and liquid maple flavoring to the boxed pancake mix.



Next time you have a cozy Sunday brunch, try spicing it up with these fall flavors (based on mixture of 2 cups dry pancake mix):

1. Apple Cinnamon: add a peeled, finely chopped extra large Granny Smith apple and 1 tspn of ground cinnamon

2. Cranberry Orange: add the zest of one large orange and one cup dried cranberries (soak the cranberries in water beforehand until they plump up a bit)

3. Vanilla Spice: add 1 tbsp vanilla extract, (optional): seeds from 1 fresh vanilla bean, 1 tspn ground cinnamon

4. Butterscotch: add 2 tbsp liquid butterscotch flavor

5. Pumpkin Spice: add 1 tbsp vanilla extract and 1 tspn pumpkin pie spice

*The possibilites are endless. You can use any combination of spices and flavoring extracts. Make them into dessert with candy sprinkles or chocolate chips. Add a cup of fresh, dried or thawed frozen fruit, and you can also add nuts or oats. For a rich, hardy texture and flavor, start with an instant pancake mix in whole wheat or buckweat. Then don't forget to drown them in maple syrup!

    1. I think I just like them because I get to pour maple syrup on them. Apple cinnamon are my favorite!

  3. I do make apple pancakes using chopped apples. My family loves them. Never thought of adding cinnamon though.
