KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to KCL Friday Finds! Grab a cup of coffee and get ready for some shopping fun! This weekend I’m all about treating myself to an at-home mani for selfcare Sunday and getting that glow with a new skincare routine.

I’m so happy to be using Oh It’s Natural again! Their products are all-natural with simple ingredients, so they're perfect for sensitive skin or for people like me who have a lot of allergies. This 3-Step Complete Hemp Skincare Regimen includes a cleanser, face oil, and sugar scrub. The Hemp All Over face oil can be used as an oil cleanser and makeup remover as well as a moisturizer.

Made with hemp seed oil, sunflower oil, and Vitamin E oil; it’s such a hydrating and nourishing oil. More so than most facial oils I’ve tried, this one really helps to even my skin tone and gives my skin a healthy glow. Hemp seed oil ranks zero on the comedogenic scale, so it’s perfect for all skin types. If you’ve been wanting to try a face oil but have been hesitant, I high…

Strawberry Banana Feel-Good Smoothie


I typically feature vegetarian main courses and side dishes for my Meatless Mondays, but I'm assuming most of you overindulged on chicken wings, cheese dip, and beer during the super bowl last night. You probably need a light pick-me-up. This banana strawberry smoothie is packed with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune boosting nutrients that will get your body back on track. And it's easy. You don't need chia seeds or anything else from the health food store to make this feel-good smoothie.

Ingredients
*makes 2 servings

2 very ripe bananas (slice and freeze overnight or a few hours before)

8 medium ripe strawberries

2 cups raw fresh kale

juice of 3 oranges

1 cup low-fat milk or dairy-free alternative like soy milk (I like mine pretty runny. For a thicker, creamier smoothie, use plain yogurt instead of milk.)

Slice and freeze bananas a few hours before or overnight. This is my trick for making a sweet smoothie without having to use sweeteners. By using very ripe frozen fruit, you get the natural sweetness from the fruit without watering it down with ice.

Add all ingredients into your blender and pulse on high for about a minute. Enjoy!
