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.

Meatless Monday: Pantry Pasta with Garlic and Green Olives


This meatless recipe is the basic version of a dish I make all the time. I'm not a huge fan of tomato-based pasta sauce, so I frequently toss fresh-cooked pasta with butter or olive oil and go from there by adding anything I want like olives, artichoke hearts, cheese, and seafood or grilled chicken breast.

I named it Pantry Pasta because I literally use whatever I have in my pantry that could go well with pasta. This dish is so easy to make, it really doesn't require a recipe. Simply boil your pasta as usual, drain and return to the pot, then toss in the oil (or butter if you prefer) and stir in the toppings. I love using stuffed green olives simply because I always have them on hand.

If you want to make this meatless dish healthier, use a veggie pasta and toss with fresh garden veggies or cooked greens. Add in kale or spinach to the boiling pasta water for the last minute or two. To make it a meaty pasta dish, add cubed chicken breast or shrimp by pan searing them in a skillet and cooking thoroughly before adding them to the noodles. Enjoy!

    I do like tomato sauce with pasta, so I'd be inclined to add it in.
