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.

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...
