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.

Music Monday: "Let It Go" by Elsa on Disney's Frozen performed by Idina Menzel


Disney's latest hit animated film Frozen is one of the best in a long time. My girls and I got to see it in theaters, and we were all very impressed. The imagery and music is so beautiful, it's worth seeing on the big screen. In "Let It Go", the biggest musical number of the film, the eldest sister Elsa flees the kingdom after accidentally unleashing her power over ice and snow. In the movie they refer to it as Elsa's curse because it has caused her to hurt people including her own sister Anna, but a very wise mentor once told me that our biggest weaknesses are often our gifts which are merely out of balance, whether stifled or grown out of control. In Elsa's case, her fear of her powers leads her to extreme restraint, shutting away her gift and shutting everyone out of her life. When Elsa is free to use her gift, she completely blossoms. Well, then she goes a wee bit out of control before the whole thing is over. Through her sister's unconditional love, she finds a way to undo the damage she has caused and learns to control her abilities. Her curse becomes a blessing to her family and the entire kingdom. If you have children and have yet to see Frozen, I encourage you to go see it.

For music Monday, we have the big number by Elsa, performed by Idina Menzel. The soundtrack has many other lovely numbers and is available for purchase. Click here to buy the Frozen soundtrack.

  1. It seems the animation companies are finally going back to casting voice actors who aren't big Hollywood names but who suit the characters. I know Idina's work from elsewhere, and she has a good singing voice.
