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.

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.
