KCL Beauty Edit - November

Welcome to an all-new beauty edit! I hope you're ready for Thanksgiving and weekend shopping!! I have a Black Friday guide coming out, and you can get a sneak peek right here >, and stay tuned for a Shop Small Holiday Gift Guide this Saturday! For today's guide, I've included some of my monthly beauty faves and some very #giftworthy items. A lot of the brands mentioned here are also included in my big 5K Insta Giveaway, so you won't want to miss the chance to win. Don't miss the big sales and coupon codes below either. Enjoy!

The first beauty gift idea is a way to spoil someone else and to get something nice for yourself as well. At Sitronu you can get a free Mini Gift Set with the purchase of any gift sets over $35. The mini gift set includes a 1 oz Zesty Sítrus shampoo, 1 oz Rósmarín Lavender bath salts, 1 oz. honey turbinado sugar scrub, and two sample size lotions. You can see my unboxing video of the mini gift set here >.


I've sampled several lotion…

DIY Citrus Ice Cream Bowls


These adorable lemon bowls turn an easy summer dessert into super chic party food. All you need are a few knives and a melon baller or spoon to create these single-serve cups. I love the yellow contrasting with the raspberry sorbet. Though they don't make for the biggest ice cream bowls. If you want larger ones, you could of course use oranges or grapefruits using the same technique.


Step 1: Wash the lemons and slice each one in half. Cut off a small slice on each end so the cups will stand up straight. One bag of lemons is plenty, as one whole lemon produces 2 cups.

Step 2: Use a pairing knife to cut around the inside edge to break up the membrane. This makes it so much easier to clean out the pulp. I found that my bird's beak pairing knife was perfect for the job, but you can use any small sharp knife.

Step: Use a melon baller or spoon to scoop out the pulp and seeds. Don't cut all the way down to the pit on the bottom, because you might end up making a hole in the bottom, though you do need to get as much of the pulp out as possible and make sure the inside is thoroughly dry before you add the ice cream. If you don't, you'll wind up with a watery mess.

Step 3: Just before serving, spoon a scoop into each lemon cup and serve with a small ice cream spoon. Enjoy!
