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…

Snickerdoodle-Toffee Chip Cookies


One of my favorite cookies at Christmas time is the snickerdoodle. The combination of a traditional sugar cookie and cinnamon make me feel like the holidays have officially begun. Don't get me wrong, I love decorating gingerbread cookies for Christmas, but when it comes to eating Christmas cookies, pass the snickerdoodles! This year I wanted to switch up the flavor (and perk up store-bought snickerdoodle cookie mix), so I added toffee chips. The result was nothing short of a Christmas miracle. Whether you want a delicious new cookie to give as easy Christmas gifts, or if you simply want to add a new flavor to your Christmas cookies this year, try my semi-homemade Snickerdoodle Toffee Chip cookies.

Ingredients:
  • 1 package snickerdoodle cookie mix
  • 1 C toffee bits
  • cinnamon sugar for coating cookies
*If you want to start from scratch, here is my favorite Soft Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe.


Mix the snickerdoodle cookie dough according to the directions on the package (or make sugar cookie dough from scratch) then stir in 1 cup toffee bits. Roll the dough into uniform 1&1/2" balls and roll in cinnamon sugar (if making from scratch, use ratio of 1/2 sugar: 1/2 ground cinnamon). Place dough balls on cookie sheet a few inches apart and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on a rack before packaging.
