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.

5 Modern Ways to Wrap a Present



Holiday wrapping doesn't have to be all about red and green or snowflakes and Santa. While I do like to have more traditional wrapping underneath my tree to match the decor, I love to dress up my friend's presents with something bold and modern. It's also nice to have leftover wrapping paper rolls in designs I can use all year round. If you want to make these modern gifts a bit more festive, dress them up with glittered ribbon or a sleek ornament gift topper.

1. Chalkboard Kraft Paper Roll - Much like traditional brown Kraft paper, a roll of Kraft chalkboard paper is a versatile way to wrap a present any time of year. For the holidays you can draw on words like Merry Christmas and Ho Ho Ho, and you can even draw on a bow. Though I'd be concerned with using regular chalk. I'd hate for it to rub of. Instead use a white liquid chalk marker. Tie it off with red and white baker's twine.

 
2. Anthropologie Mod Geo Wrapping Paper - Geo print has been trendy in both home decor and fashion this year. It only makes sense it has translated to paper printing. I like how this geo print paper from Anthropologie has some silver shimmer to it. Pair it with shimmery silver ribbon for a modern yet festive presentation.


3. Neon Wrapping Paper - Bold color can look incredibly modern if you go with a bright neon paper. Tie it off with ribbon in a contrasting color.


4.
Anthropologie Marbled Wrapping Paper - A marbled finish in another trending print lately, and it's absolutely beautiful on paper. Just like the geo-print paper from Anthropologie, this marbled wrapping paper has some holiday shimmer to it. The sparkly string ribbon looks perfect with it.


5. Weathered Wood Grain Paper by the Paper Kit
- Faux wood grain paper is a top gift wrapping trend this season. I think it's a cool way to wrap a guy's gift, especially if you top it off with simple black ribbon. To dress it up for a gal pal, tie it with a velvet brown ribbon and a woodland creature ornament gift topper.
