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.

5 Classic Trends for Fall


There are several stand-out trends in fall fashion each year. Though I love how some of the biggest runway and street style trends are classics that will never really go out of style, like the pointy-toe pump. It's a great investment if you want to update your style this fall. And you can never go wrong with a neutral blazer or a metallic statement necklace. With the right pieces, you can give your wardrobe a modern makeover while investing in classic pieces at the same time. Here are my top picks for a modern Fall refresh that will be in style for years to come. Pictured: A. Byer Juniors Long Sleeve Button Welt Jacket

1. Jersey Blazer - If I could buy 20 different blazers I totally would, but ever since I invested in a black jersey blazer, I haven't needed any other jackets for fall. It can go over dresses, tanks, tees, or blouses; more importantly it can be worn with a casual or dressy look. If you get one new wardrobe staple for fall, I highly suggest a Black Jersey Blazer.

2. Leather Mini or Pencil Skirt - leather mini skirts and leather pencil skirts are both classics and add a modern feel to any look. Just keep in mind a fitted leather skirt is already sexy enough. Steer clear of anything shiny or too embellished - keep it simple. Of course a leather pencil skirt is more suited for the office, while a mini is fun for going out.


3. Sparkly Statement Necklace - Fall and Winter is a time for sweaters and blazers. Nothing dresses up a sweater or a plain tee with blazer like a shiny statement necklace. It's also a great way to update a simple sheath dress to make it party-worthy. A simple work dress layered with a dazzling necklace and paired with pretty pumps can instantly turn it into a chic cocktail dress. Bauble Bar (featured below) is a wonderful site to shop for super glam fashion jewelry that's actually affordable.

Another place I like to shop for affordable statement necklaces is Charlotte Russe. I know it's a teenie bopper shop, but they have the best fashion jewelry for $5 to $15 dollars. It isn't always the best quality, but for $5, it's a great place to find a special piece for a one-time occasion. Check out what they have in stores, as they have a much better selection of jewelry in stores than online.

4. Pointy Toe Pumps - Tall boots will be just as trendy as ever this Fall. However in the way of high heels, classic pointed-toe pumps are the way to go. Get a pair in a neutral color like white or black, and you can wear them with anything from office attire to distressed jeans, which brings us to the last trend.

5. Distressed Denim - Denim is a must for Fall fashion, and while jean trends come and go, the distressed slim-fit jeans have become a classic staple while still lending an updated look to any outfit. Go for minimal distressing, and you'll be able to wear them with anything from a tee and sneakers to a blazer and dressy pumps to tall boots and a sweater.

Which of these trends do you already have in your wardrobe, and which ones would you love to buy this season? Let me know in the comments below!

  2. Can't go wrong with leather skirt, so edgy and chic. And yes, jersey blazer should be a must in every woman's closet.
