KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to KCL Friday Finds! Grab a cup of coffee and get ready for some shopping fun! This weekend I’m all about treating myself to an at-home mani for selfcare Sunday and getting that glow with a new skincare routine.

I’m so happy to be using Oh It’s Natural again! Their products are all-natural with simple ingredients, so they're perfect for sensitive skin or for people like me who have a lot of allergies. This 3-Step Complete Hemp Skincare Regimen includes a cleanser, face oil, and sugar scrub. The Hemp All Over face oil can be used as an oil cleanser and makeup remover as well as a moisturizer.

Made with hemp seed oil, sunflower oil, and Vitamin E oil; it’s such a hydrating and nourishing oil.

Hemp seed oil ranks zero on the comedogenic scale, so it’s perfect for all skin types. If you’ve been wanting to try a face oil but have been hesitant, I high…

An Ornament-Pick Gift Topper DIY


One of my favorite ways to dress up a present is to use an ornament pick as a gift topper. Specified gift toppers in the gift wrapping section can cost up to $5 for just one little topper. But during the holidays, there are so many ways to get the same look with less money. For example, you could use yarn to make your own pom pom topper, or you could use a beautiful ornament from the dollar store. My favorite way is with an ornament pick (pictured above). With a decorative ornament pick or a Christmas floral spray, you can use a plain white box. This also works really well for dressing up treat boxes. For the holidays I always stock up on plain white gift boxes, tin-tie bakery bags, floral holiday picks, and matching wire ribbon. The wire ribbon is easier to manipulate into a large bow that you can shape perfectly around the pick. You can find these Christmas picks online, at stores like Target and Wal-Mart, the dollar store, and the craft store.

Start by taking the ribbon flat over the top of the box and down two opposite sides all the way to the bottom. When you get to the bottom with the ribbon, twist it in the middle and take it up and over the other two sides, creating a cross over the bottom. When you get to the top, tie it into a bow. (Measure approximately how much you'll need before you start so you can pre-cut the ribbon.) Then stick the floral pick or ornament pick down through the middle of the bow and bend so that you can hide the pick part underneath the ribbon.

  1. I suspect if I tried to wrap anything, it would look like a gang of monkeys had done the job.
