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…

Music Monday: "Wings" by Birdy as Featured on Winter's Tale Trailer


Like most of my favorite songs, I first heard "Wings" by Birdy on film. When I saw the theatrical trailer to the new romantic movie Winter's Tale, all I could think was which song is that and who on earth sings it? Upon sifting through her debut album, I realized I'd already heard one of Birdy's songs. Her cover of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" (featured on her debut album Birdy) is equally beautiful and moving, though I think her original song "Wings" is still my favorite. Check it out below, and to hear more, you can listen to a fabulous Birdy compilation here.



The talented young British singer, song writer, and pianist (real name: Jasmine van den Bogaerde) has a new album out called Fire Within, which debuted in the fall of 2013. Her live appearances and press tour are in full swing, having just performed on the Today show. If you appreciate singers who can actually sing as opposed to performers who show a lot of skin and act like morons, I'm pretty sure you'll absolutely love Birdy!
