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.

Our New Favorite Main Street


One of the first places Ken and I checked out after moving to our new home, in addition to the Dallas Museum of Art, was historic downtown McKinney, Texas. I hadn't seen an old main street this charming since I had lived in Maryland. Granted we had the Rose District and a few great places in Tulsa to do our weekend window shopping, but the stores were a bit limited.

The main street downtown McKinney is so large that I think we only covered a portion of it this day. Our favorite shop was by far this adorable little store called Plum Creek Primitives. There were so many cute holiday items in there, as well as a lot of unique home decor.





The McKinney Performing Arts Center didn't seem to have any upcoming events that Ken and I would be interested in, but it was still a fun building to explore. We had to go in because I needed to use the bathroom, as usual, but we wound up looking around and discovered a really cool art exhibit.

With shops like Mom & Popcorn candy shop, countless home decor shops, and a very authentic looking cajun restaurant; Ken and I will definitely be going back! Most of the building had red brick exterior, and over-sized flower pots lined every sidewalk corner. And for some reason, there were a lot of adorable frog statues scattered outside various shops.




We look forward to exploring the rest of the shops, restaurants, a farmer's market, and boutique hotels. There are also walking tours of a little village comprised of several historic homes called Chestnut Square.

Well, as for tomorrow, Ken has off and we are going to enroll the kiddos in their new schools here and take care of some other errands before we start our weekend. I hope you all have a lovely and relaxing weekend!
