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…

Holiday Appetizer: Blue Cheese & Fig Jam on Butter-Round Crackers

 

These blue cheese and fig jam appetizers are so delicious and addictive, most important they're so incredibly easy to make. If you're entertaining for the holidays, it helps to have a few appetizers you can assemble at the last minute. You can simply set out a cheese and cracker tray, but if you need a last-minute appetizer platter that looks (and tastes) amazing, try these Blue Cheese & Fig Jam appetizers. All you need are butter-round crackers, fig jam, and a small container of crumbled blue cheese. (You can use sliced blue cheese if you prefer). Either way, a small container of both the cheese and jam will go a long way, so you'll have more than enough.

Take one cracker at a time and use a butter knife to spread the fig jam on first, then place the cracker on your serving platter and use a small spoon to top the jam with about a teaspoon of blue cheese.

*Tip: Try variations of the same recipe using the formula of cracker + jam + cheese. Other tasty combinations I love include apple jelly with smoked gouda, raspberry jam with ricotta, and red current jam with brie. You can find more cheese pairing ideas in this jam and cheese pairing guide.

  1. I've never tasted blue cheese or fig, so I can't say what I'd think of them...
