The KCL Beauty Edit

Welcome to another KCL Beauty Edit! I've really loved so many of the beauty and makeup products I tried last month. There is usually at least one dud in the bunch that I reluctantly have to give a bad review, but I have something good to say about each one of these products. A few of them I very highly recommend, so grab a cup of coffee and check it all out. If you have a question about any of the products mentioned, please leave it below in the comments section. And if you don't have time to read this, you can skip ahead and listen to my video review here while you work or whatever. Enjoy!


The new skincare line I tried last month was from LHB Natural Skincare, which included a facial wash and two different facial serums. I recently posted about LHB in an anti-aging skincare routine blog and video to show how I use each of these products. Of course I started with the facial wash, which I really loved. The LHB Coconut & Sea Clay Mineral Face Wash is great for any skin type…

The Perfect Gift Ideas for Your Gal Pals

As a woman, it's pretty easy to shop for your best friends. Chances are you have a lot in common, and you know a lot about each other, so let that be your guide. I have a few girlfriends I exchange gifts with each year even though we live far away from each other. Their gifts to me are always so wonderful, even I get nervous about finding them the perfect presents, though I know they'll appreciate anything. I try to keep in mind what their favorite brands are, and if I buy something simple like a sweet treat, a candle, or fashion accessory; I find something that is unique and luxurious - something they ordinarily might not splurge on for themselves. And it's always a good idea to throw something fun into the mix, like this funny cocktail napkin.

I find that a great skin care product is always a great gift when it comes to best friends. Wrinkle cream isn't exactly something you want to get from your mom or boyfriend, but from your bff, it's one of the best gifts I've ever received. Just stick with a nice boxed set. If you know she is trying to get into shape, something like a yoga mat or a healthy cook book is a great idea. Again, it isn't something she wants from a guy or even her mom, but from her best friend who already knows every detail of her life - all of her strengths and weaknesses, a gift that supports her latest efforts will be much appreciated.

For the friend who travels often, you can't go wrong with a nice weekender bag or travel accessories. I love to give jewelry travel organizers and hanging cosmetic bags. They're so practical but you can also find them in beautiful designs. If you get travel accessories like luggage tags or a passport case, make it extra special by getting one that is monogrammed.

Gifts for the home are also perfect to give a gal pal. You know her style and her favorite colors and whether or not she likes to entertain. A luxurious throw blanket is something a woman can't have too many of. For the friend who loves to entertain; pair some cute dessert plates, a serving tray, or a beautiful cake stand with a new cookbook.

For the stylish friend, of course anything related to fashion is the perfect gift. Whether it's some new costume jewelry, a pretty scarf, or a new handbag; anything pretty and girly will be something she'll love and appreciate! Chances are she'd also love anything beauty-related, like a nice makeup gift set or perfume. For the techy stylish friend; try a sleek tablet case, portable mini speakers, or something clever like this smart-phone tripod with remote timer for taking pics.

My go-to store for bff gifts is ROSS. If you live near one of those or a TJ Maxx or Marshalls, you can easily find bath and body, makeup, fashion accessories, home goods, and even sweet treats there for under $40, $30, and even under  $10 and $20. If you're on a budget, you should definitely check out one of those stores.
