KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I am super excited to share some new Friday Finds with you! It's a bit of a mix, as we all seem to be anticipating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas all at once now. Though I'm trying my hardest to live in the moment with pumpkins and autumn decor. I know after Halloween, everyone will be all about Christmas, but we should slow down and enjoy the harvest decor up to Thanksgiving, don't you think? As always, there are a few printables in the mix for last-minute decor, as well as some products for my fellow wine lovers, and some more awesome discounts that were created just for you Friday Finds readers!! 🙂🍂 So you know the drill, grab a cup of coffee and sit down for a break, so you can relax and browse these amazing shops.


First let's kick things off with this week's featured candle. I just have to feature a candle each week. It's the perfect season to cozy up with a good book and flickering candle light. A scented candle is also th…

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!
