KCL Friday Finds

I'm pretty excited about this week's finds...as always. I keep wondering if I'm ever going to run out of great small businesses to feature, but I'm beginning to think that won't be a problem. Each week brings new shops and the most amazing new finds. And now that Valentine's Day has come and gone, I am all about Spring! I know, it's still cold here and there, but we can enjoy the remaining cold days by looking forward to fresh flowers and all-things-Spring. Today's finds is entirely about home decor...not something I planned intentionally this time. It just wound up that way, and I couldn't be happier. These shops have all you need to give your home a cheery refresh. Enjoy!


This first one is one of the top home decor trends for 2018. With macrame and fiber art exploding in the world of home decor last year, I'm happy to see it continuing into 2018. The beautiful pieces at Spinning Weaves are woven and include the most beautiful colors and patte…

The Baked Makeup Trend


You may have noticed these little domes of shimmering eye shadow suddenly popping up all over the beauty aisles. The "baked" makeup trend has spread to other beauty products like blush, bronzer, and even baked foundation. But what makes an eyeshadow or a bronzer compact "baked" exactly? It isn't just the shimmer or the beautifully marbleized compacts. Baked makeup products start out as liquids which are baked into solid powder. This is said to create a more blendable product that can be used wet or dry. I love the trend. I've always used makeup with a bit of shimmer, and I can say from experience that these baked products do in fact blend very well.

I really love the e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow Palette in California pictured below. It's quiet similar to the Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette but at a more affordable price. You can see a tutorial for that baked palette here >>


The baked eye shadows tend to be semi-sheer. That's what I love most about them. You can apply them lightly for a subtle touch of color and shine, but you can also swipe on multiple layers for a more colorful and glamorous look. It's the perfect makeup for day to evening.

For spring I just picked up the e.l.f. baked eyeshadow trio in  and will include it in a big Spring beauty giveaway! It's perfect to wear lightly for daytime then heavier for an evening out.


The shimmery bronzers are perfect if you're on the go. For everyday makeup or if I have very little time to make it out the door, I use a bronzer blush quad. I quickly sweep the blush and bronzer onto my cheeks, then I use the highlighter color under the brow bones and on the inner corners of the eyes. Then I use one of the blush shades on my lids and the brozer in the crease as a contouring color. Or if I'm in a major hurry, I swipe a small blush brush over the entire compact and quickly brush it over my cheeks and lids and finish off with some quick mascara.
