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.

Chocolate Strawberry Tartelettes


Yesterday I shared my tutorial on how to make heart-shaped strawberry slices, and today I'm here to share a quick, easy, and very yummy Valentine's Day dessert you can make with the strawberry hearts.

I start with premade frozen phyllo pastry shells. (You should find them in the frozen desserts section next to the frozen pie crust. Typically 12 shells come in each box.) These are my trick for elegant and effortless bite-size desserts and appetizers. You can fill them with so many different ingredients to create a delicious savory or sweet treat. Fill them with scrambled eggs for brunch, melt brie in them for a chic appetizer, or fill them with pudding and fruit for a tasty dessert.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1-2 packs of frozen phyllo pastry shells (get one pack for 2-4 people and two to three packs for a crowd)
  • one packet of chocolate pudding mix prepared and chilled (you can substitute with homemade chocolate pudding) *Follow directions for pie filling so the pudding turns out thick enough.
  • 4 medium to large strawberries (per 12-count box of pastry shells) cut into heart slices

 Lay the shells out on your serving tray and fill each with about 1/2 tbsn pudding. (You can also use white chocolate pudding to make white chocolate strawberry tartelettes. Top each shell with one strawberry heart slice.

Tip: Make the pudding the night before and assemble the chocolate strawberry heart tartelettes about an hour before serving so the shells don't get soggy from the pudding.
