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…

Style Trend 2014: Buffalo Check Prints


The buffalo check pattern seen above has been a growing trend among plaids for a few years, and is predicted to be huge this winter and into 2014. The specific take on plaid (also referred to as lumberjack plaid) is distinctive in that all the lines in the pattern are both equidistant and equal in size. Current trends in the buffalo check often display the print in wide lines of red and black.

How to Wear the Buffalo Check Trend

The buffalo check is a very easy trend to wear. As it almost always contains black in the colors, you can pair a buffalo check top with neutral black pants or a skirt. You can also pair it with black accessories, though I like the idea of adding on some sparkle with a metallic bag or clear crystal necklace. The print can look a bit masculine. Add some femininity with form-fitting pants and heels or dressy flats.

  1. That pattern of course triggers the Pythons singing I'm a Lumberjack in my head...
