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: Sweet Pea Parmesan


One of my favorite ways to go meatless is to simply throw together pasta, parmesan, and a green veggie like peas, broccoli or asparagus tips.

INGREDIENTS:
(serves 2)

*7oz uncooked dry spaghetti noodles

*1 C frozen sweet peas (can substitute w/any frozen veggie)

*1/4 C olive oil (or a few tbsp butter if you prefer)

*1/2 C grated parmesan

*pepper to taste

*garlic salt to taste (can substitute regular salt)

Simply cook the pasta as usual but a few minutes before it is done (when it's al dente) add in the frozen veggies and continue to boil.

Drain veggies and noodles and put pack in pot. Add oil/butter, cheese and spices and stir thouroughly. Serve with a salad.

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can substitute with any kind of pasta or white cheese you have on hand, and you can substitute so many other different veggies. If you have super-picky eaters like I do, you can even cook a few different veggies and serve them separately as toppings. On nights when you do serve meat, you can try it with cubed chicken breast or smoked sausage. This dish is so easy and inexpensive, and you can cook it in less than 30 minutes.
