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…

20 Decadent Chocolate Dessert Recipes

http://www.krisztinaclifton.com/2013/05/recipe-roundup-20-decadent-chocolate.html

Is there anything better than a chocolate-frosted layer cake? Or a little chocolate cupacke topped with ganache? Whether you're in the mood for something sweet and decadent or want to make a gourmet gift that is sure to please, you can't go wrong with any of these recipes.

If you're a beginner baker, I'd go with the cupcakes or my mini bundt cakes. They may look intricate and difficult to make, but the beautiful presentation relies on the toppings or ganache. Make it quick and easy - start with store-bought cake mix (or use this chocolate cake recipe), pour on fudge sauce, and garnish with your mom's favorite candy. For example, if she loves peanut butter, you could blend peanut butter into plain white frosting and garish with peanut butter cups.
