Best of 2022 | Beauty

Happy Wednesday from Mexico, friends! Five years ago when my dad passed away right before Christmas, Mr. Sugarplum and I snuck away for a few days at the beginning of January, and it was just what I needed to process and grieve.

It was the first time we’d ever traveled during that time, and both discovered we really loved having those unplugged days to reflect back, celebrate wins, and plan for the future… it truly feels like a reward at the finish line of a year-long race, and something I look forward to all year.

I’m sharing peeks at our time on Instagram, so you can follow along HERE, and you know I’ll have more on the blog when we get back.

This week on Hi Sugarplum we’re reflecting back on all we’ve done around here in the last 12 months… with over 200 blog posts a year, it’s a lot of content, and I love to see what you love most. Last week I shared your Top 20 most purchased and requested items of 2022, across all categories (definitely a few surprises… see those HERE), Monday was all about Home Decor & Travel HERE, and today we’re talking Beauty!
