KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to KCL Friday Finds! Today's shopping guide is full of affordable beauty-themed stocking stuffers. Don't get me wrong, I love to get candy and chocolates in my stocking, but I also love other gifts, like a cute new pair of socks and especially little beauty products.

A beauty stocking stuffer doesn't have to cost a lot. Between individual sheets masks and bath bombs  to lip balm and nail polish, you can find so many great options under $10. Several options below are even under $5.

The most universal of stocking stuffers, aside from candy, is lip balm. When given as a gift, go with something more luxurious than a Cherry Chapstick from the grocery store. My favorite lip balms at Bua Organics are all-natural and organic and come in options like Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Oil. For a moisturizing lip balm with the addition of a fun scent, try Einstein Bath Co., for flavors like Sangria, Marshmallow, and Pink Frosting.

A wonderful way to give a luxury beauty…

Galentine's Day the Right Way


There are usually two different kinds of people when it comes to Valentine's Day - those in love and eager to celebrate and/or flaunt it, and those who have a bah humbug attitude towards the whole thing.  I find myself in the first category, though I hope it comes across as inspiration vs. flaunting. If you however, find yourself single this February, I encourage you to embrace the holiday! What better time to get together with your friends and have a fun party. It doesn't have to be an all-men-suck rally...why let that dominate a perfectly good evening? I suggest you celebrate yourself, your friends, and use it as a time for some much-needed self love.

I really like the idea of this Pizza & Popcorn Galentine's Day Greeting Card as a GALentine's Day invitation. It's tempting with social media to throw a super chic and Instagram-worthy brunch, but how about ordering pizza, making some popcorn, and doing some face masks and nail painting like we all did back in the day. You can still make it chic with some easy decorations and a yummy sparkling cocktail. Pictured above: Galentine's Day Wine Bottle Label


For anyone attending a Galentine's Day event, a wine bottle covered with a Galentine's Day Wine Bottle Label, like this one by Paprika Paperie, is the perfect thing to give as a hostess gift! There is one more cute Galentine's Day design available, though my favorite is the Kate Spade inspired striped one pictured above. Click here to see all of the Valentine's Day products available at Paprika Paperie!


For a cute and easy party favor, you could go with something like individual face mask packets or nail polish, especially if you decide to do a pampering themed party, but if you'd rather give out sweets, these "All Day Rose`" Rose Gummi Party Favors are perfect! You can find more packaging options at The Brodie Bride.




As I suggested above, forgo the complicated buffet with bite-size appetizers and just order some pizza. Keep dessert just as simple but a little more chic by picking up a pretty cake at your local bakery and topping it off with this Happy Galentine's Day Cake Topper by City Girls Crafty World. For some inexpensive, easy, and super cute decorations; order their Valentine's Day Banner and heart confetti. You can get them in different combinations of silver or gold and red or pink, and the banner is currently 10% off!


Of course when it comes to the drinks, wine is such an easy choice. But if you want something a little special, try my recipe for a Rose` Raspberry Cocktail. It is a self-pampering party after all...a little bubbly is in order, I think.

If you're throwing a Galentine's Day bash, I hope you take my advice and use it as a time to celebrate your friends and yourself. You can shop for everything you need using the links below. Happy February! 💕
