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…

Trending: Women's Black Sheer Mesh Swimsuits


Summer fashion continues on the blog this week with my favorite swimsuit trend for 2013 - the black mesh suit. While I love the other top trends this season like fringed and vintage swimsuits, I think the black mesh suits are so modern and sophisticated. I'm so excited to do a photo shoot in the Leonisa suit pictured below. Both a product review and editorial shoot are coming soon!

There are so many variations of the mesh suit, offering both a lot and very little coverage. These sheer swimsuits are a great way to wear a sexy bathing suit without having to sport a bikini. Although, the trend is also available in two-piece swimsuits, like the Alexander Wang suit pictured above. Most of them feature full coverage on the bum, and some even have light tummy control. All of the sheer mesh swimsuits featured here range in the hundreds and as low as $75.00. Here is an excellent full-coverage option in the Miraclesuit Women's Fashion Figures Jena OTS One Piece.

You can get in on the trend with a sheer black swimsuit coverup. These coverups look great with any of the mesh suits, as well as any solid black swimsuit. You may not want to wear this for a casual day at the beach, but it's perfect for a dressy pool party.

How to Style A Black Mesh Swimsuit


Accessorize the look with modern metallics and black gladiator sandals. I love the Vince Camuto Lily Tote in gold. A glamorous swimsuit like this one needs black over-sized sunglasses. For a fancy pool party, finish off the look with a red lip.

  1. Emphasis, on some, on very little coverage, mind you...
