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…

The Weekend IT List

Weekend IT List

1. Shop Small. November 30th is Small Business Saturday 2013 - sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this shopping day needn't be overlooked. Take a break from the crazed deal hunting and support your local small businesses. It isn't just about spending (though small business owners will appreciate it), but it's also about boosting the spirits of the local business owners, so even if you're already broke from Black Friday, it's still a great day to head to main street and do some window shopping.

2. Eat Those Leftovers. You want to eat up that turkey soon so you don't risk food contamination. If you have lingering turkey and cranberry sauce, use it up with one of these Thanksgiving leftover recipes. I'm using up my turkey meat and cranberry sauce to make a Thanksgiving Monte Cristo sandwich today. I will definitely take pics for a recipe post.

3. Put Up the Tree. I know a lot of people who have already put up their Christmas decorations, including me. I put a lot of effort into beautiful Christmas decor; I want to enjoy it as long as possible. For inspiration you can check out my Christmas Home Tour from last year, and you can follow along with my Christmas Home Decor pinterest board where you'll find over 100 pins featuring beautiful Christmas decorating ideas.

4. Get Off the Couch. The average American piles on 5 extra pounds every year during the holidays. Yikes! Take some time during Thanksgiving and Christmas to keep your health in check. Pack on the veggies and go for a walk.

5. Catch a Flick. There are several great new movies in theaters right now, like the latest Hunger Games installment. Though I'm most excited to see the new Disney movie Frozen with my daughters. I'm also patiently awaiting the DVD release of Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, for release on December 3rd.
