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…

A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch at Summer's Farm in Frederick, MD


Summer's Farm in Frederick, Maryland is one of my favorite places to take my girls during the fall season. (Those are my two daughters in the middle and their friends on the sides.) It's a family farm owned since the 1930s and has grown from a small dairy farm into the sprawling attraction it is now. For fall they're typically open towards the end of September through the beginning of November. In addition to the regular pumpkin patch adventure and corn maze, they host the Maryland Pumpkin Festival as well as field trips and children's parties.


There are so many games and activities for children at Summer's Farm, our favorites being the giant slides and the corn pits.


There is a wide variety of farm animals to look at, from goats and donkeys to pigs and various birds. This goat pictured above enjoyed a chin scratch from my daughter Kylie.



The corn maze is a must. For 2013 Summer's Farm displayed a design in their maze featuring the Baltimore Ravens.

My favorite part of going to Summer's Farm is the food. They sell the most incredible kettle corn, among other things at the concession. At the Country Market you can purchase large bags of kettle corn to take home, as well as goodies from McCutcheon's Apple Products. McCutcheon's is another family-owned business that started in the 1930s and is a local staple here in Frederick. My personal favorites from McCutcheon's are their apple cider and pumpkin butter.

You can find more info on Summer's Farm at their official website summersfarm.com. Where do you like to go to celebrate the season?
