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.

The Weekend IT List

The Weekend IT List

Is it bad that 4 out of 5 things on this week's list involve food? Ah, who cares? It's freezing here, and after a quick trip to the store to get munchies and some movies, I plan to hunker down all weekend. It's the perfect time to enjoy some hot cocoa and do some baking. Have a lovely weekend!

1. Winter Sales - It's a great time to get some winter coats and boots on sale. Pictured above: Kensie coat

2. Homemade Hot Cocoa - When it's freezing outside, there is nothing better than hot cocoa. Try making some from scratch with warm milk and chocolate chips. Add in other flavors like cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice or caramel sauce. Pictured above: Hot Caramel Chocolate - midwestliving.com

3. Settle in for some flicks and try making your popcorn the old-fashioned way to avoid all the yucky chemicals that come with microwave popcorn. I've been popping mine over the stove with olive oil and salt for years and I love it!! Pictured above: How to Make Perfect Popcorn without a Microwave - bonappetit.com

4. Make Something Sweet - At my house, especially on a chilly weekend, it's pretty much required that we have something sweet whether it's homemade french toast or a fresh-baked pie. If you plan to be inside this weekend, try some homemade bread and jam or homemade applesauce. Pictured above: Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce - lifesambrosia.com

5. Ina Garten's New Show - Don't miss Ina Garten's - The Barefot Contessa's new Food Network show featuring celebrations, premiering this Sunday, Jan. 26th. Pictured above: Random House Barefoot in Paris: Easy French Food

Enjoy your weekend!
