KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to another Friday Finds! Can you guys believe it's the weekend before Thanksgiving?! Time has been flying by since we moved into our new home, and I'm miraculously keeping up with all of the PR samples and promos and photography. At KCL we've also passed 5K followers on Insta and have a huge giveaway featuring some of my favorite things...over $500 worth of faves (including this gorgeous red nail polish)!

Next week's finds will be Black Friday deals, so there won't be the usual small shops featured, but that is to make way for my big Holiday Gift Guide that will be posted on Small Business Saturday! On today's finds, you get a sneak peek at one of the gift guide picks as well as some self-care bath and body goodies and some adorable ornaments to help you kick off your holiday decor. Enjoy!

March Letter from the Editor


I've never been a big believer in luck. I believe what others perceive as good luck is often the visible result of a lot of hard work and perseverance that has gone on behind the scenes. Lucky breaks don't just happen to people who don't have the right foundation for it.

Do I feel lucky to have met my fiance? To finally have met the perfect person for me? Of course. But it isn't due to some single lucky break or some chance encounter, but rather the result of action, timing, and perseverance.

I don't believe in bad luck either...not as people often refer to it anyway. I believe bad luck is a phrase people like to apply whenever faced with negative consequences. And much like prayer, the hope for good luck takes our responsibilities out of the equation. Show me a "lucky" person, and I'll show you someone who has worked hard, made wise choices along the way, and has persevered through challenges. Show me someone who is "down on their luck" and I bet that person is the type to blame others, to refuse to do the necessary work, and who gives up as soon as things get difficult. Now, don't get me wrong; I know that sometimes bad things just happen to us, things beyond our control. But again, we become faced with the option of hoping for good luck to come along or choosing to work for it. And when all else fails and you can't immediately change your circumstance, you can at least work through it, to the best of your ability and with a good attitude...that is perseverance.

I suppose you could say I do believe in luck after all, though I beg to differ with the Mirriam-Webster definition. I don't believe it just happens to us by chance. Good luck is something we create. Let's create some good luck this month.
