The Perfect Housewarming Gift & How to #SmudgethatSh*t

My family and I have recently moved into a new home, and first on my to-do list was a cleansing ritual. Thus this beautiful floral smudge stick from Mystical Blossoms was the perfect housewarming gift. Now, I know, despite how trendy sage has become on Insta, you may be hesitant, or perhaps you just have no idea how one goes about performing a cleansing. To sum it up, it's about being intentional about the kind of energy you want in your home. It's simple...do you want good vibes? Do you want to let go of the bad vibes? Great...then as they say on instagram, let's #smudgethatsh*t.



For a quick cleansing, you can use a smudge spray, for example, like this Namaste Smudge Spray; or you can use incense, herbs, a fragrant simmer pot...it doesn't have to be something specific. The point is that by adding something tangible to a prayer or meditation, you turn that prayer or meditation into a ceremonial act, and that will make you more confident and intentional about your thou…

KCL Friday Finds


Happy weekend and welcome back to KCL Friday Finds! I can't believe it's back-to-school time already. Our kiddos are heading back to school this Monday, and my husband and I are ready to get on the Fall routine for sure. Soon after that, it'll be cooler weather (hopefully), more cozy nights at home, and all of the fun holidays that come with the approaching seasons.

In preparation for the Fall, I've been booking lots of product reviews and planning out the upcoming seasonal content, and I couldn't be more excited! In the coming weeks you'll see more in Fall Fashion, Fall Beauty, as well as Fall Decor. For this Friday Finds, take a little time to spoil yourself, because there are several must-have natural beauty products and some boho-chic jewelry that will transition perfectly from Summer to Autumn.

Organic beauty brand BaeBlu (pictured above) was born to revolutionize a shift in the industry. I've personally noticed this shift, as people are wanting more and more natural products when it comes to beauty. At BaeBlu, they've harnessed the power of nature to create a skin care and cosmetic line free of damaging toxins. I appreciate their commitment to providing clean and cruelty-free beauty, and I greatly appreciate that they offer a modern and trendy aesthetic not always seen in natural beauty brands. From their best-selling tinted cheek balm to everything in the brights and bolds makeup collection, this is not your average organic makeup brand.


They provide high-performing organic skincare, haircare, and makeup for the Instagram generation. With makeup products like Photoshoot CC Cream and their new Insta-Fame foundation line, they have everything you need to get the perfect selfie. The BaeBlu Pregame Skin Perfecting Primer is on sale the rest of this month, so don't miss out! Its pore-minimizing formula fills in fine lines and wrinkles so makeup can glide and blend seamlessly. Another skin-perfecting product of theirs is the Lux Liquid natural liquid foundation. The advanced botanical anti-aging formula in this foundation blots excess oil and balances dry spots while restoring skin to a healthy youthful glow. I'll be reviewing some of these goodies soon, so keep an eye out on my Insta! And don't forget to grab that primer while it's still on sale. Use code Primer for 20% off and enjoy Free Shipping on any US orders over $49!


On Etsy since 2013, owner Jennifer designs and creates all of her jewelry using high quality materials such as natural gemstones, freshwater pearls, natural leather, 14k gold-filled and sterling silver components. Her mission as a designer is to help bring beauty into the lives of others through her jewelry and customer care. It's easy to see that she has done just that.


At Designs by JenniLyn you can find beautifully handcrafted accessories like essential oil diffuser bracelets, handmade leather jewelry, and these beautiful tassel earrings. I love that the aromatherapy jewelry comes in light colors with white lava stones, as opposed to the usual black stones. Her newest pieces, including gemstones paired with long tassels, would make for the prettiest holiday gift and are perfect for fall and winter style. My top picks are the Dendritic Opal and Blue Tassel Earrings and the White Hydro Chalcedony and Blush Tassel Earrings (pictured above). Shop the current monthly special of 25% OFF or pick from several designs in the 30% OFF sale.


Arcadian Winds Beauty is a Denver based, small batch skin care line created and formulated by Lisa, a 13 year licensed master esthetician and skin care expert. A self-proclaimed product junkie, Lisa pours years of experience in the treatment room into these handcrafted products, bringing you formulations using sophisticated active ingredients and gorgeous natural materials with incredible textures and natural scent profiles.  Loaded with oils rich in essential fatty acids, luscious natural butters, and nourishing botanicals, Arcadian Winds products are for anyone concerned with skin health and proactive prevention of the aging process.


The Nourish for Face natural botanical facial moisturizer for Normal/Dry or Oily/Acne prone skin is an Omega-rich moisturizer with a creamy blend of seed, berry and kernel oils that prevent evaporation for long-lasting moisture. And I've got a promo code just for you guys! Get this moisturizer on sale for 25% OFF plus gift with purchase when you use the promo code: fridayfind. The free gift with purchase is one of their pretty tinted lip balms. This naturally tinted gel lip balm is ultra-moisturizing with shea butter and Vitamin E and has a vibrant plum tint. It's such a great deal to get one of these free with the facial moisturizer! I'd pair their Nourish moisturizer with their Nourish LUXE Facial Oil, or this rich Nourish Rich Neck and Eye Cream, which features the union of two of the most saturated fat-heavy naturals around: Organic Cocoa butter and avocado oil. The orange stem cells in this rich cream can boost collagen, protect against free radical damage, and can brighten skin. The delicious cocoa, earthy carrot seed essential oil, and neroli give it a natural rich scent.

So there you have it - some beautiful makeup that is good for you and great for your Insta feed, a jewelry line that will have you set for the new season, and a skincare line with cutting-edge botanical formulas for healthy glowing skin. Which one of these beautiful items are you most interested in? Let me know in the comments below!

Have a happy weekend and happy shopping!
