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…

2013 Style Trend: How to Wear All-Over Denim



Otherwise known as the Texas Tuxedo, all-over denim is one of the top women's fashion trends for Spring / Summer 2013. I initially wanted to avert my eyes and wait for the trend to pass, but it just continues to gain ground, so why fight it? It isn't as hard to style as you might think, and it can actually look great.

Tips for How to Style All-Over Denim
  • Mix up the shade. In look #1, I paired a light-denim chambray with dark denim.
  • Go with a denim dress! It's a quick and easy way to achieve the look. And as you can see in look # 2, it's the perfect opportunity to sport a floral print handbag.
  • Instead of mixing different shades of denim, pick a top with pattern to break up all the denim.
  • It looks great with tan accessories, but you do want to add some color. If the shoes are neutral, go for a colorful handbag.

 Two Ways to Wear All-Over Denim for Summer


For instant all-over denim this Summer, throw on a light denim cover-up at the beach. Pair it with the Sam Edelman Gigi T-strap sandal in denim. For some color go for a bright red beach tote, like the Mar Y Sol Havana Striped straw carryall in coral. In the second denim look, I broke up the blue with different shades and a print. Pair the look with this Summer's new it shoe - the espadrille flat. Soludos in particular is a very popular brand this season, worn by celebrities like Kate Bosworth and shown on the Today show by beauty and style expert Bobbie Thomas. These looks have a nautical and patriotic feel, but don't have to pair summer denim with red and white. Other bright colors like yellow or orange can also add a nice pop to these all-over denim looks.
