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.

DIY Vintage Christmas Ornament


This is seriously the easiest DIY Christmas ornament you could possibly make. You don't have to know how to sew, knit, or even use a hot glue gun to make this easy DIY Christmas ornament. All you need to make this ornament is velvet ribbon and a large pendant. I found the one pictured bove at JoAnn Crafts. I was just looking for any kind of beautiful pendant I could use as an ornament when I stumbled upon the Christmas-themed pendant. If you want to add some glitz and glamour to your tree (without spendind an arm and a leg on premade ornaments), you can find a variety of metallic and/or jeweled large pendants in the jewelry section of a craft store, most for under $5.00 and some as low as $2 a piece. I found the golden velvet ribbon on sale for $1.


You can use any style ribbon or string you want to make this DIY Christmas ornament, just be sure it's thin enough to fit through the link on the pendant. This thin velvet ribbon worked perfectly and comes in so many pretty colors.

Cut your ribbon at least 6 inches long and string one end through the opening on the pendant. Pull it through halfway then make a single knot (leaving enough space for the loop to fit onto a branch) then tie the remainder of the ribbon into a bow at the top of the loop.


There you have it! Perfect for a pretty, vintage-themed Christmas tree. I'd love to make several with some beautiful cameo pendants, skeleton keys, and some antique-looking pocket watches too!

  2. Krisztina, I'm beginning to think there's nothing you can't do! I've never been crafty...at least not that kind of crafty....
