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.

Get the Look: Modern Terrariums


Modern mini terrariums are a huge home accessory trend this year. One trip through West Elm or Pottery Barn, and you'll see display after display of open clear-glass planters that serve as mini terrariums filled with modern plants like succulents or live air plants. My favorite kind are the faceted geometric terrariums, like the ones pictured here. I snapped a few shots of them on a recent visit to West Elm.



They're the perfect addition to a modern living space or office. Though I also love how West Elm has them displayed in a centerpiece. To get that look, incorporate these planters in different shapes and sizes, and fill them interesting details, like seashells or decorative rocks.

What About Drainage??

This is a commonly-asked question when it comes to modern glass planters. With plants like succulents which require little water, the moss and pebbles and layer of dirt are plenty to keep water from pooling on the bottom as long as you don't water too much. Succulents are so easy to care for, and they just happen to be on-trend as well this year; they're perfect to put in a modern terrarium. Here's a great video from West Elm on how to layer the elements in your planter.
