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.

A Pretty DIY Place Card for Spring



Spring is the perfect time to incorporate eggs into entertaining. These simple craft eggs are a cute and easy way to create beautiful place cards this season. I used a fine-tip black marker to write the names on each egg, though a metallic Sharpie would look great too. You could also use just the first letter in each name to make monogram place holder eggs. If you aren't great with handwriting, use a stencil. I love each of these egg place holders on top of a simple white place setting.

For a small gathering, you could use boiled eggs, but for a larger party, stick with these craft eggs so you can make the place holders ahead of time.


An Egg Place Holder with Jelly Beans

This place holder is perfect for Easter brunch. It's so cute and gives each guest a little bowl of their own after-dinner candies to munch on. Fill a small bowl or glass dessert dish with small Easter egg jelly beans and nest each egg on top.



A Nested Egg Place Holder with Edible Grass

This is also perfect for Easter, though you could also use it anytime during spring if you have leftover edible candy grass. This particular kind of candy grass doesn't stay together in a nest very well after it's taken out of the packaging. You can either use a piece of the grass to tie the nest together, or you can nestle it down into a bowl. You may need to use scissors to snip any pieces that don't stay in the dish. Then all you need is the egg.



Fresh Flower & Egg Place Holder

This spring place holder isn't quite as fun as the other two options as it isn't edible, but what it lacks in yumminess, it definitely makes up for with beauty. If you're hosting an elegant spring brunch, this tulip place setting is perfect. Use a dish that is deep enough to fill up to an inch-deep with water. This one would look even more beautiful with some pink floral dinner ware.
