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.

Weddings: Sweet Ideas for a Spring Bridal Shower

Sweet Ideas for a Spring Shower

Spring is the perfect time for a beautiful bridal shower. You can decorate with so many pretty floral-themed products and incorporate some shabby chic or some vintage glam.

1.Spring door wreath - For a special occasion, decorating begins at the door. For a fancy spring shower, swap out the birthday party balloons for a beautiful floral wreath.

2. Signature White Wedding Invitations - Set the tone for the shower with an elegant floral-themed invitation.

3. DIY Tissue Paper Poms | Lia Griffith - The perfect elegant spring shower would have endless bouquets of fresh flowers, but that can be expensive. Save a ton of money with DIY flower poms. Make them in large sizes and cluster for decor then make smaller ones to top small favor boxes or to make a tissue flower garland. You can still mix in a few fresh blooms by the guest book and on the buffet or drink cart.

*Tip: even the pre-made ones have to be fluffed and strung after purchasing. What makes flower poms such a cheap alternative is if you get crafty and make them yourself from start to finish. It does take a lot of tissue paper, but you can purchase that in bulk. It's really not that hard, I promise. If you are capable of cutting paper and tying string, you can make your own flower poms. Alas, if you've completely been skipped by the crafty gene, you can purchase them.

4. A Beautiful Dessert Buffet - I love to incorporate the food into party decor since it's something I have to spend money on anyway. Nothing is prettier than a table filled with colorful tasty sweets. For a spring shower, garnish with fresh flowers and display desserts on fancy dessert stands.
