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.

3 Looks for the Tulsa Ballet


For our Valentine's date this year, Ken and I are going to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center for the ballet Dorothy and the Prince of Oz. We've been to musicals and ballets at the PAC several times and definitely plan to keep going each season. Looking back on last Valentine's Day, we were there for Romeo and Juliet.😊💕

When I first moved back to town, I thought what should I wear to the ballet? I knew what to wear if I'd gone to a show in DC or NYC when I lived on the east coast, but let's face it, Oklahoma is a bit more casual.This can be a good thing at times, but most of the time I'm just wanting to get dressed up. Though part of dressing well is to dress properly for the occasion - which includes to not be overdressed. But luckily a cocktail dress is in full order for a night of ballet in Tulsa. If you're going to a musical in one of the smaller theaters, you can wear a dress or even slacks and a blouse. But for a ballet at the PAC, it's perfectly expected to wear a nice cocktail dress.

My three top picks for this weekend consist of a little black dress. (That is the easiest option if you don't own a lot of dresses.) But then again it is Valentine's Day weekend, so something in red or with lace is a prettier option.

The third is a great option, because it's easy to wear. A fit and flare dress is flattering and pretty but very comfortable, and it looks great with flats! If you're going to dinner and the PAC downtown Tulsa, you can bet on at least a little walking, not to mention the stairs inside the building...you may want to skip the high heels and go for kitten heels or a pair of dressy flats. A pointed-toe or open toe pair of flats both look great with a flared skirt.




Fashion holds such sentimental memories for me. That striped dress, for example, I wore on my second date with Ken. The lace one I wore to see Cinderella at the PAC, and the necklace with the blue dress was a gift from Ken on my birthday the year before last. I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing the blue dress for our date. You can follow along on Instagram and shop similar looks below. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

    I love all three of your outfit picks - my favorite is the blue lace one as it's a bit different for a special date!
