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.

Garlic-Herb Tomato Toast


A recipe that is not really a recipe...that is my most favorite kind of dish! I have an aversion to measuring every single ingredient. Though admittedly food blogging has caused me to take down some of my favorite creations into recipe form so I can actually recreate those dishes perfectly every time. But not today. A little of this, a little of that is when I'm happiest in the kitchen.

Tomato toast is something I love to whip up for lunch or serve as an appetizer for a dinner party. It's cheap, easy-to-make, and so delicious. It's the perfect menu item to tack onto your next party menu.


INGREDIENTS
  • stale bread (preferably ciabatta, but you can use French or Italian loaf as well)
  • olive oil
  • garlic salt
  • dried Italian herbs 
  • fresh herb garnish (optional)
  • tomatoes on the vine (Really the only measurement you need to go by with this dish is to use about one tomato per two slices of bread. The rest can be left up to taste...and well, common sense of course.)

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Slice each mini loaf in half and brush evenly with olive oil.
  2. Sprinkle generously with garlic salt and dried herbs. I used Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb spice mix with a bit of garlic salt. Highly recommended!
  3. Toast until golden brown, then slice the tomatoes in half. Take the open side of the tomato to rub the juice all over the toast.
  4. Dice the remaining tomato and top each toast. Garnish with fresh herbs like basil or thyme. Enjoy!
