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.

Snapshots from the Week


The weekend is here! I'm very excited about several things, like a Kate Spade bridal event at Dillard's my fiance just told me about, as well as the okBride Tulsa Summer Bridal Show we're attending on Sunday. We're getting a head start on Fourth of July fireworks Sunday evening, and tomorrow we're sneaking off for a hotel night so we can spend some time just focusing on each other.:)

This past week was pretty darn good already though. Those flowers above are the latest bouquet my fiance bought for me. It's been a bit hard for him to surprise me since we moved in together, because we're always together...we like each other :). But after a run, he managed to swing by the store and surprise me with them when he got home. Just-because flowers are the best kind.:)


Some of these shots are from last week; somehow I got a bit behind on the weekly round-up post. We saw Me Before You at Warren Theater last week, and it was very sweet. I'll have to leave it at that to avoid giving any spoilers.



Also last week, we went to Utica Square for their Summer's Fifth Night. Our third date was at the summer concert series last year, so going back to Utica is always romantic. We started with dinner at BGB Brownie's Gourmet Burgers. Though we did pack up and head home a bit early. The hot Tulsa summer is in full effect lately, so we'll head back later in the season when it's cooled off a bit.


Now I believe I'm caught up to this actual week. My nail color for the week was essie in "Mod Square." I'm not one for pastel nails personally, so whenever I get tired of red, I go for a hot pink like this one.


Speaking of pink, I had to try the trending #pinkdrink at Starbucks. It's basically an acai refresher with coconut milk. Very yummy!


The wine we tried this week was a very nice surprise. Apothic Red Winemaker's Blend is made with dark berries and hints of vanilla and cocoa. We had previously tried a red wine with cocoa, and I thought the cocoa flavor was too overpowering against the fruit flavors. This Apothic wine was perfectly balanced in my opinion. And it was quite strong...only took a glass and a half to get me feeling quite nice. Even better, it was smooth...not very dry at all, but bold in flavor and though it wasn't at all a sweet wine, the fruity flavors came through just a touch. I'm finding that's my favorite kind of red. Definitely going to get this one again and highly recommend it if you like strong red wine!



We tried a new spot for lunch yesterday - the Claret Cafe in Tulsa. It was such a lovely surprise. The inside was even more beautiful than I'd expected, the food was so yummy (and affordable), and the service was excellent. Definitely going back there!


After lunch, our girls saw Finding Dory in 3D while we saw Now You See Me 2. Very good movie. I think this weekend we're going to see Free State of Jones. You guys have a great weekend!!:)
