KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! I've got another round up of beautiful home decor items for you guys today. It hasn't been intentional, it just so happens that the Friday Finds participants have all been home decor shops lately, and I'm loving it! With Spring coming up soon, it's the perfect time to spruce things up around the house and update your decor for the new season. Pictured: Geometric Pineapple Jewelry Holder/Home Accessory

First up is something we could all use more of in our homes - hygge by Snygge Home (pronounced snoo-gue). Snygge is a play on the danish word hygge that I'm sure you've heard of by now...or at least seen and thought what is hygge anyway? Hygge is "a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being." You can read more about it on Hygge Home.

At Snygge Home, owner Alice and her boyfriend Jack create hygge-inspired homeware, gifts, and event decorations using 3D printing. And like most E…

CLARINS Beauty Spring 2018

I always look forward to Spring. After winter, I'm ready for some color and some beautiful blooms. When it comes to fashion and makeup, Spring is a fun time for florals and feminine colors. This year I'm particularly into pastel pink and lavender.

CLARINS has a few new makeup items in pink and purple that they're promoting for Spring 2018, and I was happy to give them a try! I've had the pleasure of testing out the new SOS Primer in Lavender, the 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette in "Lovely Rose," and the Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in Plum.

I've really enjoyed using the CLARINS SOS Primer. My skin can appear quite dull, especially during winter. This primer gave it a nice punch of color. Each SOS Primer by Clarins is meant to address a specific need, so you can mix and match or use just one. For brightening and evening skin tone, the lavender, paired with my usual foundation and concealer, has made a big difference for me. It gives a touch of color that makes my skin look much more healthy, and it really helps to cover up both dark spots and red irritated patches of skin. The effect is so much more correcting, rather than covering up with heavy foundation.

The CLARINS Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector is meant to feel like a balm and shine like a gloss. While I do love the color, and it does deliver on both moisture and shine, I have to say I was unimpressed by its staying power. When I used it on a Saturday afternoon of shopping with my husband, I found myself reapplying it multiple times in just a few hours.

That is fine for a cheap lip balm that only costs a few dollars. But for a CLARINS lip product which costs $26.00, it really should stay on longer. I have to take into consideration how much you would be spending on this, and considering it costs over $20, I really can't recommend it to you guys.

What I would recommend however, was my absolute favorite item in the new Spring collection by CLARINS - the Lovely Rose eyeshadow palette. This palette as a whole is so beautiful, and perfect for spring. The shimmer is subtle (just how I like it), and the color is heavily pigmented. The shades are quite versatile in that I can wear them all together, or I can lightly apply one or two shades for an easy daytime look, or I can use just one of the shades to create a bold, colorful look in seconds. And as you can see, it comes in a beautiful gold-tone case!
