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.

Christmas Home Tour


Traditional reds adorn our trees, garland, and Christmas wreaths.
 
From birds and pinecones to florals and fruit, our traditional Christmas decor displays elements of nature as the central theme.

An old-fashioned miniature Christmas village lends itself to the traditional Christmas decor.


Simple dollar-store finds, like red candles and the "Merry Christmas" tray pictured above increase the festive look without costing a lot of money.

Red velvet bows on all of the greenery provide a cohesive look to our Christmas decorations.



In our dining room, a second Christmas tree is decorated with red velvet bows and vintage-inspired ornaments. The red and white florals and plain red baubles tie it in with the family tree in our living room. Ribbon hung vertically on the wall by our dining table displays Christmas cards, and on our table sits one simple mini Christmas tree.

I've always seen gift wrapping as another opportunity for Christmas decor. Ours matches the rest of the room both by it's red colors and the natural elements.


 It doesn't take a lot of money or time to create beautiful, cohesive Christmas decor. For me it's all about picking both a main color or two and a central theme, then tying them together by repeating one specific element. For example, I tied every area together by incorporating red velvet ribbons in each section. What does your Christmas style look like this year?

  3. It looks beautiful! I love all the details. I have always wanted a garland for my staircase, but with four boys, it's been impossible. On that note, my decorating style this year is one-year old toddler. Our tree is a mess with all the ornaments he's been picking off and we've replaced up high. Our tree is naked from the waist down (hee hee).

    1. Thanks, Katherine. Yeah, I just started doing that this year w/the presents. It should help with sorting them on Christmas morning!

  5. What beautiful pictures and a beautiful house. We love Christmas and do a lot of decorating too. The comment above about what a one year old can do to a tree reminds me of my sister-in-law who put their tree in a play pen (do they have those anymore?) to keep their smallest child away from it.
    I wish everyone a Merry Christmas or Happly Holiday filled with family, friends, fun, and peace.

    1. Thanks! I even toned it down this year...I usually do the outside and some of the bedrooms, but I just stuck with the main living areas this year. I'm a tad bit obsessed w/the holidays.
