Those Heavenly Finds: Week 4

Last week I posted a photo on Instagram asking you all to guess what my three favorite things in the picture were. Well I made you wait for the answer but here it is. Plus one more favorite thing to round it all out! The perfect summer jumpsuit that’s as flattering as it is comfortable. Speaking of comfortable the chicest slide on sneakers ever that have thankfully made their way into my closet. A fantastic and delicious summer rosé that effortlessly ushers in perfect heavenly moments with just one glass…or two. Last but not least, the most adorable and inspired succulent pots to add flair and color to your home office, kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. Or really anywhere you put it. Enjoy! XOXO, KT

Beauty Face (Celfie) Succulent Arrangement
  • Beauty Face (Celfie) Succulent Arrangement – I’ve become a giant fan of succulents the last few years due to their lush beauty and ease of care. I found these unique and lovely arrangements on Etsy and can’t wait to buy a few for my desk at home in Utah. I love the feminine and whimsical ceramic planters and know their artistry will help to inspire my own creativity while the succulents themselves will add that much needed pop of color and life to my office space.
Step-In Bade Sneaker
  • Step-In Bade Sneaker – I have these in both the cream and the navy and am totally forever in love. They’re incredibly comfortable and so chic I wear them with everything from summer dresses to jeans and tee shirts to tailored pants and blouses. My feet aren’t what they used to be and wearing a pair of heels takes a certain amount of gumption and commitment that I’m not always up for these days. These slide in sneakers are the perfect solution to cute foot wear that doesn’t force me to grin and bare it.
Katherine Heigl Wearing A Pilcro Denim Wide-Leg Jumpsuit
  • Pilcro Denim Wide-Leg Jumpsuit – I found this perfect summer jumpsuit at the Anthropologie around the corner from my Toronto residence. For some strange reason I packed a ton of jeans and sweaters for my time in Canada but not enough lightweight summer wear. There is nothing more uncomfortable than skinny jeans on a hot and humid summer day. This jumpsuit was the perfect remedy to my problem. It’s incredibly comfortable, even in the heat and looks pretty cute too. I’ve been wearing it everywhere. I pair it with cute sandals or slide on sneakers for casual days strolling around with the kids or a bright and summery high heel for dinners with my man. It’s incredibly versatile and it’s not too hard on the ol’ pocketbook either. Score!
Château de Roquefort Corail Rosé
  • Château de Roquefort Corail Rosé – I’m not certain when my love affair with rosé began but I do know that I am just as enamored with it today as I was that first sip however long ago. Usually I like a very dry and crisp pale pink rosé that’s served as cold as possible. This Corail did not disappoint when I was poured a glass at one of my favorite Toronto eateries Chabrol Restaurant. A bit sweeter than I normally go for but not in a sticky or cloying way, in fact that little bit of sweet made the glass even better. I’m not sure how easy this is to get online because I haven’t tried ordering any yet but I thought I’d throw it into this weeks finds anyway just in case you’re on the hunt for a beautiful summer rosé to add to your wine cabinet.

Toronto Adventures: Evergreen Brick Works

Toronto Adventures: Evergreen Brick Works
The Kelley clan has been really living it up exploring our adopted city of Toronto. We relish our quiet existence in Utah but have been loving the change of scenery and the opportunity to experience city living. Before kids I rarely ever got out and explored the locations my work took me to. I am so grateful my little ones have forced me off the couch and out to adventure. The first stop on our Toronto tour was Evergreen Brick Works. We hit it up kinda late on a Friday so most everything was closed for the evening but we loved the beauty, serenity and all the awesome, even though we couldn’t use them, features of the park. We plan to hit it back up for the Saturday Farmers Market soon and Josh and I are dying for an adults only date night at the beautiful farm to table Cafe Belong.Continue Reading

I’ve mentioned before how much I love finding a true artisanal treasure. The hunt, the discovery, thinking no one else knows about your very special treasure…until you tell the whole world about it of course. Etsy has made the hunt for handmade easier and more engaging than ever. I can spend hours cyber perusing all the beautiful shops and stores, seeking out that perfect something. The thing is, I just can’t bear to keep my findings to myself! So here’s January’s list of Artisanal Etsy finds curated by yours truly! Enjoy!Continue Reading

My Favorite Beauty Finds: Part 2

Katherine Heigl's Favorite Beauty Finds: Part 2
Perfect skin has always been a bit elusive for me. Well that’s not totally true. In my early teens I had flawless skin that I totally took for granted. Then I hit about 18 and was riddled with the most persistent, ugly, cystic acne imaginable. I was totally mortified by it, but unable to clear it up no matter how many facials, tonics, ointments or creams I tried. Finally, at my wits end I succumbed to my dermatologist’s pressure to try the much debated Accutane. It did clear my acne up in about a month but left me with a pretty sensitive stomach and highly sensitive skin. I still suffer from the occasional hormonal breakout even now, and on top of the indignity of zits at 38, I’m also dealing with wrinkles. So now I need products that combat both, which seems wholly unfair to me but as the saying goes, the weather may be fair, but life never is.Continue Reading
