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.

BEST NAIL POLISH

I tried several different nail po…

Zesty Blueberry-Lemon Smoothie



This blueberry lemon smoothie is not one of those recipes in which I sneak in veggies, like my usual fruit and kale smoothies. It's simply blueberries, fresh lemon zest, and a few basic ingredients; and it's a powerhouse of antioxidants and other good stuff. And it's yummy!

The fresh lemon juice aids in digestion, contains vitamin C, and hosts multiple other health benefits. Also packed with vitamin C, the blueberries serve as a powerful antioxidant, along with their own set of healthy benefits, including fiber.

If you make it with unsweetened almond milk, it's quite low in calories, and I used Stevia to make it free of added sugar. I've found that anything made with blueberries or chocolate do a great job of covering up that Stevia aftertaste.

INGREDIENTS
  • one cup unsweetened almond milk (or regular milk)
  • one large ripe banana
  • 1 & 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
  • zest of two lemons (be careful not to get the white pith - it'll make the smoothie taste bitter)
  • juice of one lemon
  • one packet Stevia
*Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
