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.

The Weekend IT List



1. Carve a Pumpkin. It's the weekend before Halloween! I assume you've already taken a trip to the pumpkin patch. Time to carve your Jack-O-Lanterns, or decorate a pumpkin. You can find tips on pumpkin carving on my Halloween blog. For a wealth of free Jack-O-Lantern printables, visit pumpkinmasters.com.

2. Pick a Last-Minute Halloween Costume. I love this Addam's Family Wednesday Costume. It's all about using what you already have in your closet. I think I may just snag this idea! I've got the hair. If you don't over think it and focus on something from everyday life or a movie character who basically wears normal clothes, you can come up with something using clothes you already have. Have a skirt suit? Add on a neck scarf, and you're a stewardess. Wear head-to-toe khaki, and you're on safari.


3. Go on a Leaf Hunt. The leaves are turning. Before winter sets in, head out with the kids and a basket to collect leaves, twigs, and pine cones for a weekend fall craft. Here's an easy pine cone craft I shared this week.


4. Serve Up Something Spooky. One of my favorite Halloween treats I've ever made were these Killer Cupcakes I put on the Halloween Blog last year. They're so fun for an October bash, and they're actually so easy. You can even start with store-bought mini cupcakes and simply top with red gel icing and the premade Wilton edible sugar knives.


5. Host a Scary Movie Night. Didn't get that Halloween party planned in time? Host a last-minute scary movie night! All you need to set the mood are candles and low-lighting and some quick store-bought Halloween treats. There are several spooky movies recently out on DVD like World War Z and The Conjuring (both highly recommended). For more scary movie ideas, you can check out my guide on the Top 200 Horror Films.
