KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to another Friday Finds! And happy Fall!! This Saturday marks the Autumn Equinox, and the first official day of Fall. Though the temps might still be quite high in some places, we can officially celebrate all things pumpkin spice. From home decor and body care products to fall beauty and fashion, you can find several ways to get started on seasonal shopping this weekend. Enjoy!

One of my favorite things to switch up with each new season is my makeup. This Fall I find myself really attracted to a mix of traditional warm tones and shimmery jewel tones as well. At Lip Love, there is no shortage of either in their beautiful new Fall collection! From their "Sierra" shade - a warm red lip gloss with gold and brown tones, to "Reign" - a stunning deep purple lip gloss with berry hues, the collection has every shade you need for the upcoming holiday season. If you can't make up your mind (who could blame you), you can purchase a lip duo like this Bronze Beauty …

Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes


I first made these stuffed tomatoes for a brunch, and they were a huge hit. It's the kind of dish that if you serve it to a crowd, nearly everyone demands the recipe before they leave. I love it because it's so affordable and fairly easy to make, and of course because it's so delicious! It's a perfect little appetizer for entertaining.



INGREDIENTS
  • 4oz grated Parmesan
  • 2.25 oz black olives
  • a few tbs olive oil
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 2 cartons of fresh cherry tomatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Use a pairing knife to hollow out the tomatoes (on the end opposite of the stem side). They'll naturally stand up if you place them stem-side down.  

2. Mince the olives then combine all of the ingredients. Whenever I make a dish like this with filling and Italian flavors, I love to premix the filling a day or so in advance and keep it in the fridge until the day of the event. All of the flavors seem to meld together and get nice and fragrant. 

3. It's a little tricky to fill small cherry tomatoes. I used a small spoon and the curved part of my pairing knife to smash the filling down into the tomatoes. Enjoy!
