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.

How to Mix Florals and Stripes


Spring is the perfect time to play with patterns. If you follow trends, you'll have already seen several print-mixing guides for spring. My favorite combo is florals and stripes when it comes to pattern mixing. Image via Amazon


The easiest way to pull it off is to keep it neutral and cohesive. This look, for example, incorporated black and white in both pieces. But that doesn't mean all of your accessories need to be black and white as well. Add in something light for spring, like a gorgeous blush pink satchel.

If you want to follow this formula closely - a flared floral print skirt with a striped blouse - you can't go wrong with a Ted Baker Skirt (or this one if you're on a budget). You can keep the look completely monochromatic with this black and white floral skirt.


You could also go with a softer color palette. The light blues in this Ted Baker pencil skirt ( budget option here ) are perfect with a very subtle pinstripe top. Finish off the look with some nude dress sandals and a crisp white satchel.
