Holidays 2017: Birthday Trip to N.Y.C

Katherine Heigl celebrating her birthday in New York City
So in my last holiday post I mentioned that my birthday, falling the day after Thanksgiving, was kind of a s*#t show. The good news is that my friends and family more than made up for it with a badass trip to New York where we ate, shopped, rested, ate and ate some more! We celebrated my birthday three nights in a row at some of my new favorite restaurants in the city and got to see Josh play at the city winery on the Hudson Pier, which was the real reason and inspiration for the trip. When I found out he had two shows in the city early December and that our friends here in Utah had already booked their tickets so they could see him play I had the most intense FOMO ever! I’m not much of an impromptu traveler and usually choose to stay cozied up at home if given the option. This time however I couldn’t bare the thought of missing all the fun. There’s nothing like New York at Christmas time and I hadn’t been able to enjoy it in years. So I called up my sister and mother and convinced them to take the trip with me by using it as a great excuse for a much needed Heigl gals holiday getaway! So without further ado, here are all the pictures of our fabulous New York City trip and links to all the best spots we found in case you want to plan you’re own getaway soon.Continue Reading

Holidays 2017: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving napkins
I have decided to do a blog series detailing my holidays starting with an inside look at my friends and family Thanksgiving and ending with my plans for next years Christmas. I know it’s a bit after the fact and may feel either irrelevant at the moment, or too soon to even be thinking about it, but because I took a bit of a blog break over the holiday season I wasn’t able to share this with you then. I guess I’m going with the better late than never narrative and hope you’ll agree!Continue Reading

A Belated Look At Our Family Halloween

This years Halloween costume search led me to the most fabulous Etsy store where I found the perfect costumes not just for the kids but for Josh and I too. I’ve never done a family themed Halloween before but it was so much fun and got us so much positive attention I’m thinking it may be our new Halloween tradition! For as long as I can talk the kids into it that is.Continue Reading

My Favorite Beauty Finds: Part 1

Katherine Heigl's skin care regime
Over the last few years I’ve managed to hone in on a few things that help me look and feel my most beautiful. I’ve streamlined my skin care regime and cherry picked the best products to help me achieve that often illusive clear skin glow. I’ve carved out time to get my roots done regularly and have my lash extensions cared for (said lash extensions are kind of my new favorite beauty find by the way!) I’ve discovered the perfect apps to help me maintain a consistent, quick and relatively easy workout routine and I’ve mostly stopped buying the latest trends in favor of fits and styles I know are more flattering to my figure. It’s taken me about 20 years to figure out what I most need, what truly works and how I really want to feel and I thought I’d share my findings with you. As I started listing and linking to all my favorites I realized I needed to break this post up into parts. It was getting a little overwhelming and way too long to be easily digestible so I decided to start my beauty share with my favorite lash extension line, my 10 minute or less makeup routine and the two apps I’m using now to help rid myself of the last of my baby weight. The next post will have all the info and links to my all time favorite skin care products and after that I’ll dive into my go to jeans, tops and sweaters that help shape, lift, minimize and flatter me the most. I’ve discovered that feeling beautiful is beautiful and that there’s no shame in passing by a mirror and smiling at what you see!Continue Reading
