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.

Valentine's Day, a romantic dinner, or a bridal shower are each the perfect occasion for heart-shaped treats. Make it an easy task with heart-shaped baking molds and heart-shaped pans. A silicone mini-heart mold is perfect for making your own heart chocolates or mini jello hearts.

Shop the pan: Freshware 28-Cavity Silicone Mini Heart, Chocolate, Candy and Pastry Mold, $11.69

This beautiful heart-shaped bundt cake doesn't even need to be frosted. In fact it looks best unfrosted to show off the details in the cake. Use it with a bundt cake recipe for a special Valentine's Day or Mother's Day brunch. Top it off with powdered sugar or a tea-cake glaze. You can also fill the center with fresh fruit or chocolate-covered strawberries.

Shop the pan: Nordic Ware 55548 Cast-Aluminum Elegant Heart Bundt Pan, $35.00, $29.99

This  heart-shaped cakelette pan set is best if you're entertaining for a crowd, like a Valentine's Day children's party or a bridal shower. You can use it to make plenty of heart and flower shaped mini cakes or petit fours.

Shop the pan: Cake Boss Specialty Nonstick Bakeware 2-Piece Mini Stacked Cakelette Pan, $29.99

This last heart-shaped pan is my favorite, because it can be used to make a heart cake or a heart cheesecake. For Valentine's Day Entertaining, use it to make a giant conversation heart layer cake! The particular one I've featured is the best value because it comes with square and round spring-form pans as well. Most heart-shaped spring form pans are about $10 a piece, so this way you save around $5 total.

Shop the pan: Collections Etc - Set Of 3 Springform Cake Pans: Square, Round, Heart, $24.99
