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.

Last Minute Entertaining Ideas for the Fourth


For the main dish, grilling is a must on the Fourth of July. If you're throwing together a last-minute barbecue, you can't go wrong with hot dogs and hamburgers. With little to no prep work and fairly quick cooking time, you'll have everyone fed in a snap. Add on simple summer sides like a garden salad, potato salad, or baked beans. If you're really in a hurry, you can pick all of these sides up at your grocery store deli. Give your barbecue buffet an instant patriotic touch with some dollar store American flags and a red checked table cloth.


Something as simple as french fries get a chic makeover when served in individual glasses with dipping sauce. For an outdoor barbecue, I also like the idea of using cafeteria-style food baskets.


You don't have to spend hours making an intricate flag-themed cake. With simple red, white, and blue frosted cupcakes; you can make a flag cupcake cake even at the last minute. Party City created the stars using a star cookie cutter and white rolled fondant. Click here to see the rest of the supplies needed to create this cupcake flag cake.


Another simple dessert for a summer barbecue is s'mores.  Arrange the ingredients in serving dishes to create a S'mores Bar like the one pictured above.

I hope you all have a safe and happy Fourth!

  1. Excellent tips, Krisztina! Somehow barbecue seems just right for the day.

    Second time today I've seen mention of s'mores. Can't believe I've never tried them.
