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…

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.
