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…

Pumpkin Spice French Toast


This recipe is so easy. I love it because it's naturally dairy-free, and you could easily make it gluten-free by swapping out the bread. It's also a quick fix if you're craving a pumpkin-flavored treat. My girls and I like to make pancakes for our weekend brunches, but this is our new favorite. We made it a few times, adding more pumpkin each time. Tonight (yes, we had it for dinner) we added extra pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Everyone agreed it was the best thus far. Serve it up for a cozy fall brunch or for an easy holiday breakfast.

I used 9 slices of plain white sandwich bread, and the pumpkin mixture wound up being just enough; if you want to make more slices or plan to use large Texas toast and want to let it soak a little, you may want to increase the quantities a bit.

Ingredients
  • 8-9 slices of white sandwich bread
  • 3/4 c canned pumpkin puree
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1&1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • butter or oil for coating the griddle

Instructions

Simply blend all the ingredients (other than the bread of course) and dip the bread in the mixture, coating each side.

Coat the griddle and heat it to 350 degrees, then cook each side about 5 minutes or until golden brown. That's it!

Pile on the fixings for a holiday brunch; set out an array of syrups, powdered sugar, cinnamon, whipped cream, and nuts.
