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.

Music Monday: Sara Bareilles ~ Brave



I have been obsessed with Sara Bareilles's music since her first album and loved her sound even more when her second album Kaleidoscope Heart came out. When she performed her new hit single "Brave" on the Today show earlier this month, she revealed that the lyrics were inspired by her gay friend who is struggling with coming out, though the words to "Brave" can appeal to many other situations as well.

To me it's about being brave enough to speak up whenever you're unhappy or hurt, whether it be in a relationship, at your job, or elsewhere. I know it's scary sometimes, especially facing the fear that even if you ask for what you need, the other person still might not want to give it to you. Unfortunately that's the only way out of a miserable situation...either they give you what you need, or you have to face the fact that they can't, and you need to move on. Even in the worst situation, there is still a huge sense of freedom and relief in having said what you needed to say. At least then you can blame the fu#ker, right?;)

In any case, enjoy the video...take a little break from the Monday blues. It features odd people dancing like crazy in public - sure to bring a smile to your face!
