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.

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.
