Welcome back to #KCACOLS. We had 41 link ups last time! THANK YOU ALL so much for being part of the linky! I really appreciate your support. For new people joining us this week, I really hope you like #KCACOLS and that you come back again next time! You can also find out more about this linky on the #KCACOLS linky page! 🙂
Please remember that this linky is all about commenting hence the reward of being featured. I cannot chase people individually. That is why I send the “Thank You Email” so people can check the list and also make sure if they have been mentioned so they can go back to the linky and do their commenting.
Also, remember that FRIDAY NIGHT is the deadline for all comments.
I can’t believe 2 more weeks have passed so quick again. The girls have been busy with some playdates, a little bit of baking and doing some Halloween makeup. They are excited for Halloween just to be able to dress up and have fun between them because we are not doing trick or treat this year.
I had a few products to review during this time. I received a super cool electric brush cleaner which has been amazing to have. It does clean my brushes and dry them in 5 minutes. Super handy. Will do a review on my blog. The girls also received outfits from Frugi. They are from their AW20 collection. The colours are beautiful. We are super happy with them. I have been also working on a really interesting campaign that could be a little bit controversial but overall it is for a great cause. Will be sharing with you about it very soon. Hope you support me. Finally, I received a gorgeous selection of dresses from Marie Zélie and decided to do an OOTD reel with one of the dresses. I am in love. They are so pretty and comfortable.
Each linkup, I love sharing a photo from my last 2 weeks on Instagram, so here is my favourite:
#KCACOLS ON INSTAGRAM

KCACOLS CROWD FACEBOOK GROUP
THANK YOU to all of you that have joined the #KCACOLS CROWD Facebook Group. You can join us here. Also if you do join, please send me a direct message with the name of your blog so then I know who you are without having to figure out your blog name 🙂
NOW BACK TO THE LINKY

We had 41 linkups! This is fantastic! We had a couple of new linkers too. On Thursday we had 15 posts that needed more comments. By Friday night (deadline for commenting) we manage to reduce this number to 7 posts. I am happy with managed to reduced this number a fair amount. Of course, I would have lovefa little bit disappointed as I expected we would reduce this number more. I really hope we can do better this new linkup.
Regarding the people that have not commented on the post before theirs, we got 10 people on Thursday. By Friday night, we reduced this number to 7. I was hoping to be better. I hope some comments are still in moderation.
Also, remember to comment on the co-hosts posts. Please also be aware that I’m BLOCKING URLs/Emails of people that have joined the linky and have not commented on any posts for consecutive weeks. If you find I have blocked you by mistake, please contact me.
I also wanted to say that I will need all your comments to be done by Friday as I won’t be doing any counting on Saturdays anymore. So Friday Night will be the deadline for all comments for now on.
The linky will be open for 2 weeks until the second Wednesday at 8 pm or until we reach 100 link ups, whichever comes first.
The co-hosts and I will be allowed to change our posts on the following Saturday after the linky is live. Please be aware of these changes during the second week.
I would suggest that you link up one post each week so you will be able to share something different and current each week. I will also be more strict regarding commenting on the post before yours.
I’m not tweeting individual people once the linky is live but I will tweet the people that have been featured and mentioned. I’ll also post a link to the new linky post on the KCACOLS Facebook Group, pin it on my Twitter account and on my Facebook page together with some generic tweets. I will of course, email all of you the link. If you could also share it by clicking the link below that would be FABULOUS!
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW LINKERS:
PLEASE START by commenting on the post linked up before yours FIRST and then comment on any other posts as much as you would like. Also, use the hashtag #KCACOLS when commenting (this is indeed very important so I can then see how many comments you are doing and then be able to feature you in my linky post which is always great for you as you get a backlink which helps improve your DA).
Thank you so much for all your comments on the host posts and the linky post. We will do our best for you to receive a comment from someone on behalf of the linky (either the co-hosts or me).

For this week’s linky I am linking up Lily Blanche – Treasuring My Precious Memories With My Gorgeous Butterfly Locket and 6 Ideas to Revamp Your Bathroom, so I hope you like it! 😉
Please do not forget to follow and check out the #KCACOLS Pinterest Board. We have pinned all your posts from last week’s linky so please go and have a look. There are some great posts that deserve a read!
Now let’s carry on with the linky:
Every 2 weeks I will choose 6 people who have commented A LOT on the linky. Three will be featured and another three will be mentioned in my fortnightly Saturday linky post. This means that 6 people will get a backlink on my new linky post every other Saturday!
1. Be sure to grab the #KCACOLS badge which can be found below or on my sidebar. Simply copy the code from the box below the badge and add it to the text/html at the bottom of your post or place it on your blog sidebar.
2. You can link up to 2 posts. I recommend you to link up one post each week to get the most of the linky.
3. You can share anything that you would like. It is open to absolutely any subject and also you can link up posts that are old or new. You are allowed to link up another linky ONLY if it is a promotional post about the linky and you can do this only once and I expect you to put my badge or a link to my linky and of course to follow the rules regarding commenting.
4. Comment on:
- one of the hosts’ posts (choose one that you would like to comment).
- the guest co-hosts posts.
- the post which is linked up immediately before yours.
- and finally, any other post that you would like to comment on.
That way everybody receives at least two comments (one from the host/guest co-hosts and one from others).
5. This linky will be open every other Saturday from 10 pm and will remain open until the following 2nd Wednesday at 08.00 pm or until we reach 100 link ups, whichever comes first.
6. If you would like us to tweet your post that is absolutely fine, just tweet your link to me @WithFranca, RACHEL @childrenofwand1 and MALIN @senlearnuk and we will retweet it. Please remember to use the hashtag #KCACOLS.
I look forward to reading and commenting on your posts!! 🙂
