KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to KCL Friday Finds! Today's shopping guide is full of affordable beauty-themed stocking stuffers. Don't get me wrong, I love to get candy and chocolates in my stocking, but I also love other gifts, like a cute new pair of socks and especially little beauty products.

A beauty stocking stuffer doesn't have to cost a lot. Between individual sheets masks and bath bombs  to lip balm and nail polish, you can find so many great options under $10. Several options below are even under $5.

The most universal of stocking stuffers, aside from candy, is lip balm. When given as a gift, go with something more luxurious than a Cherry Chapstick from the grocery store. My favorite lip balms at Bua Organics are all-natural and organic and come in options like Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Oil. For a moisturizing lip balm with the addition of a fun scent, try Einstein Bath Co., for flavors like Sangria, Marshmallow, and Pink Frosting.

A wonderful way to give a luxury beauty…

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day ~ Top Ten Best Gourmet Grilled Cheese Recipes


I adore these food-themed holidays, don't you? Nothing is more deserving of it's own celebration than a grilled cheese sandwich. Like mac 'n' cheese or chicken noodle soup, a grilled cheese is one of those dishes we love as children and continue to eat in adulthood because they make us feel good and simply because they taste so darn yummy!

While I can appreciate the traditional grilled cheese sandwich made with bread, butter, and cheddar cheese, I really love a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich made with gourmet bread and fancy cheese. Previously on this blog I came up with my recipe for a Roasted Red Pepper and Brie Grilled cheese on Ciabatta Bread. Needless to say, it was one fancy grilled cheese (and absolutely delicious). In honor of national Grilled Cheese Day - April 12th, I'm rounding up ten delicious gourmet grilled cheese sandwich recipes, starting with my own.
