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.

3 Dressy Casual Looks for Spring


Boyfriend jeans, rompers, and chambray tops are staples for spring. These pieces are each perfect for the modern dressy casual - for an office that wants you to look nice but allows for denim or for cocktails at a chic but casual gallery event. It can be a little tricky to style these trends, but with a few key pieces in mind, it's easier than you think. Pictured: MISSGUIDED Premium Longline Suit Blazer Soft Pink


Slim boyfriends jeans are a trend that is here to stay. You can dress it down this summer with sandals and a tank. For a dressy casual look, give them an instant polished look with a blazer and pumps. This season try pairing them with pointy-toe slide pumps.

Rompers and jumpsuits have come a long way since they came back into style a few years ago. This season a dressy romper is a perfectly acceptable alternative to the cocktail dress. It's a great option if you want to dress up without wearing a dress. Pair a black romper with dressy wedges and a sleek handbag for a super-chic dressy casual look. To add a layer of warmth, top off the look with a floral-print blazer.

One of my favorite looks this spring is the chambray shirt. I keep seeing it paired with printed skirts like the jersey-knit pencil skirt pictured above. It's the perfect combination of dressy and casual. Pair it with a flared floral-print midi skirt for a slightly more dressy look.
