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.

10 Easy Autumn Updates at Home


Fall is a lovely time to make your home warm and cozy. I love everything about fall - the leaves, pumpkins, mums, and everything else that comes with this beautiful time of year. Here are some simple ways to add a touch of warmth to your home this season. Pictured above: Decorative faux pumpkins and pinecones


1. Autumn Art. You don't have to be a crafter to maker this easy fall update. Bring the outdoors in with some beautiful autumn art. I like to pick o place in my entryway or kitchen where I can swap out my regular art with something festive for fall and later for Christmas. Pictured above: Fall Foliage Fine Art - Etsy

2. Rustic Pails. You can find these just about anywhere this time of year. Use them to add a rustic touch to your potted pants, or use them for other things like a candy dish or pen cup in your office. Pictured above: Rustic Fall Cachepot - One Kings Lane

3. Warm Throw Blanket. When that first chill hits the air, I love to open the windows and cozy up with hot cocoa and my warm throw blanket. Pictured above: Snow Leopard Fuzzy Throw - Pier 1

4. Pumpkin Centerpiece. Pumpkins and acorn squash are the easiest way to create fall decor. Place them on your table for an instant fall centerpiece. Pictured above: 42 Easy Fall Decorating Projects - Midwest Living

5. Fall-Themed Candles. I get so excited when I first see pumpkin-scented and other fall-themed candles in stores for the season. You can also make a natural fall air freshener by simmering water with cinnamon sticks and orange peel. Pictured above: Slatkin and Co. Leaves Candle - Bath & Body Works


6. Fall Foliage Arrangement. Swap out one of your spring floral arrangements with fall foliage. Use something natural if you can, or buy artificial foliage you can use year after year. Pictured above: Faux Gingko Leaf Bundle - Pier 1

7. Autumn-Themed Wreath. A beautiful fall wreath is so easy to put up or even make yourself if you're a crafter. Here's a roundup of 25 Festive Fall Wreath Tutorials by Six Sisiter's Stuff. The pre-made wreaths can be pricey, but you can use one every year. Pictured above: Fall Berry Wreath - Etsy

8. Autumn Garland. I love the seasonal pre-made garlands at the craft stores. I like to arrange it around a row of candles and pumpkin for my fall centerpiece. Sometimes I make my own by starting with plain evergreen garland and adding natural elements like pine cones and fall-themed floral picksPictured above: Faux Pomegranate and Pine-cone Garland - Pottery Barn

9. Decorate with Fall Baked Goods. If you've been to a bakery lately, you probably noticed a fresh batch of pumpkin cookies, apple muffins, and all kinds of autumn-themed treats. I put these goodies on display in cake stands on my breakfast bar for an instant cozy feel. Pictured above: Vegan Pumpkin Muffins Recipe - lunchboxbunch.com

10. Display the Harvest. Swap out your traditional fruit bowls for rustic baskets and display fall fruits like apples and squash. Pictured above: Apple Orchard Baskets - Joss & Main
