The KCL Beauty Edit

Welcome to another KCL Beauty Edit! I've really loved so many of the beauty and makeup products I tried last month. There is usually at least one dud in the bunch that I reluctantly have to give a bad review, but I have something good to say about each one of these products. A few of them I very highly recommend, so grab a cup of coffee and check it all out. If you have a question about any of the products mentioned, please leave it below in the comments section. And if you don't have time to read this, you can skip ahead and listen to my video review here while you work or whatever. Enjoy!


The new skincare line I tried last month was from LHB Natural Skincare, which included a facial wash and two different facial serums. I recently posted about LHB in an anti-aging skincare routine blog and video to show how I use each of these products. Of course I started with the facial wash, which I really loved. The LHB Coconut & Sea Clay Mineral Face Wash is great for any skin type…

Easy Cranberry Spice Tea Cake


Warning: Boxed cake mix is an "ingredient" in this recipe. That is in part what makes it easy. During the busy holidays, it's necessary to have some easy dishes, especially for entertaining! Though if you want to make this 100% from scratch, start with a classic spice cake recipe. If you're also the type to turn your nose up at canned cranberry sauce, here is a recipe for jellied cranberry sauce from scratch.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pkg. moist spice-cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 c milk
  • 1/3 c veg oil or melted butter
  • 1 can (1 lb.) Ocean Spray whole cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)

Prepare the boxed cake mix according to directions then add in the cranberry sauce and extra cinnamon and nutmeg until thoroughly combined, and gently fold in the fresh cranberries. *If making the cake from scratch, add the cranberry sauce to the wet mixture before combining with dry ingredients, and gently fold in cranberries after all other ingredients have been combined.


Bake at 350 (cupcakes - about 20-25 min, loaf pan  40-45  min). I made mine in loaf pans to make a tea cake and topped it of with cream cheese frosting. Garnish with fresh sage leaves and cranberries.
