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.

"Darcy Merriweather has just discovered she hails from a long line of Wishcrafters-witches with the power to cast spells by making a wish. She's come to Enchanted Village to learn her trade but finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation..." ~from Book 1 of the Wishcraft Mystery series by Heather Blake.

I've been reading this book series for years, and I absolutely love it! Ken and I both like anything having to do with the supernatural, so we both enjoy books and movies that have a supernatural angle. If you keep up on Instagram, you know we love shows like The Originals, Supernatural, and the new Midnight Texas (which we highly recommend and is based on a set of Charlaine Harris novels).


Though the Wishcraft Mystery series does contain a murder mystery in each novel, and has multiple supernatural themes, it definitely doesn't fall into the horror genre at all. It's a very charming story, set in a magical New England town, full of interesting characters and heartwarming relationships...and a few adorable animals who can talk (because they used to be people).

The protagonist, Darcy Merriweather is someone I think people in their thirties and forties especially can really relate to, even though she happens to have magical powers. She is divorced and starting over in the Enchanted Village. Darcy tends to find herself trying to move on from ghosts of the past, while dealing with the hectic day-to-day, and working towards the future of her dreams. I think we can all relate to that as adults.

It's a light read, but not too light. The writing is smart and witty, and the plot has a lot of interesting layers to it.

There are currently seven books in the Wishcraft Mystery series. You can get them all here > or start with the first one - It Takes A Witch. I just finished up the sixth and will be starting on the seventh one soon. If you try it out, give me a tag on Instagram with #KCLBookClub to let me know if you like it!

  1. I love series like this! You should read the "Cheese Shop Mystery" series which is about this lady who owns a cheese shop and gets involved in murders happening in her town. I LOVE the recipes and food in this book.
