Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend!! I’m actually headed west this afternoon for a weekend camping trip with some of my favorite people! Mr. SP and I are meeting up with my dream team, Val and Suzie, for a few nights in Big Sur.
But honestly, I’ll believe it’s happening when I get there! Over the years, Mr. SP and I have tried to visit Big Sur four times… but each time it’s foiled by one thing or another! It’s become like a joke that we’re clearly not meant to see that stretch of California’s coastline, because it’s been derailed so many times. (We’re talking booked and paid for four times!)
Our plan is to camp a couple of nights with our friends, then head out on our own for a few nights in Santa Cruz. Fingers crossed!
But anyways… last year I started sharing fun and random things I’d found and ordered on my Instagram Stories … and y’all loved it! So a weekly Monday Mail Day series was born, which is essentially like my own little Sugarplum QVC show, ha!
So every week I share a hodgepodge of gadgets and treats that make life easier and more fun… some of which have become Sugarplum Faves, and part of my every day. Here’s a peek of my most popular Monday Mail Days, along with my favorite discoveries from each. (You can find the first batch of quirky faves HERE and every week featured HERE.)
This was definitely a jackpot week, as each of these things now take up permanent residency at the Sugar Shack! We streamlined the mess of soaps and shampoos in our showers with these classic, refillable bottles, and drinks now have a coastal chic place to rest with the rattan coasters.
The wood garland is the best decor bang for your buck at $11 (they’re showing 35% off right now!), and we have them draped over books on coffee tables, console tables, and bookcases. And the cane planter? It’s ceramic!!
Another jackpot week, I’ve since reordered most of these products several times! The hair mask has saved my hair this summer from sun, chlorine, and salt… literally nothing makes my hair softer. I added the clarifying shampoo to my routine about once a month to clear out the residue and build-up, and my hair is always fuller after!
The ChomChom Pet Hair Brush has been a literal game-changer around here! It’s light as a feather, and quickly and easily scoops up all the pet hair from sofas and chairs without damaging the upholstery. Simply rub it back and forth, and watch the hair disappear!
And of course the beaded bracelets… you’ve seen me wear them on repeat all year!
I don’t know how we managed before the massager gun, but it’s amazing on sore and tight muscles, sciatica pain, and more! And the ‘H’ throw… it’s actually a designer look-a-like! So good, right? It’s draped over the back of a chair and people always comment on it!
Recognize those sweet puppy faces?! It’s Mollie and Maggie Sugarplum… I gifted these socks to the kids last year and they loved them!
My packing game has improved since discovering these clear zipper pouches… perfect for organizing toiletries, cords, and more in both my suitcase, carry-on, or just my everyday bag. And the layered initial necklace became my go-to for the last several months, and remains one of my faves.
Who knew I needed a meat masher in my life?! But this gadget is amazing for chopping ground beef, turkey, and chicken, for faster, more even cooking. And the OPI dry drops are incredible for taking your manicure from freshly painted to dry in under a minute!!
We learned the hard way we needed a heavy-duty back-up charger, and this one charges multiple devices at once and holds up to 20 hours of charge! The Mighty Patch pads work wonders in helping your pimples disappear overnight!
This plant food has transformed my pots from basic to BAM! Seriously, I had to back off from using it because our flowers are almost out of control! The USB Lighter is the coolest gadget, with no refills or butane needed!
These sandals are in my top 2 faves for the season… so incredibly chic for the best price! I love them with maxi dresses, skirts, and jeans. And hands-down one of my favorite finds all year are these home fragrance oils… our house smells like an expensive hotel thanks to these!!
The necklace connectors are genius at converting multiple necklaces into one, single clasp!
All of these things are living permanently at the Sugar Shack now, too! Darling decor for less, and the cutest tank.
My Sunday Self Care routine starts with dermaplaning my face with these razors (see my tips for at-home dermaplaning HERE), and these no-crease clips have actually helped me learn to tame my cowlicks!
Of course the world’s best Amazon bra was a Monday Mail Day find! There are a lot of happy boobs out there now, am I right? Easily convert it to a racerback with these clips. The denim shorts are a great fit and style, for under $25! And the tassel… do I even need to say anything about it?!
I did my own back-to-school shopping to get organized, and this academic wall calendar now has all our school holidays, tournaments, and games rounded up in one easy spot for the whole family to see. I love these fine-tipped pens for fun colors and no bleed-thru.
Suffer from red eyes on occasion? These miracle drops will have them bright white in seconds!!
And finally, I shared an extra-special Monday Mail Day during our last GxHSP shoot with Mama Sugarplum, Val and Suzie! They each featured their favorite discoveries from my Monday Mail Days!
So tell me… have any of my Monday Mail Day finds become favorites of yours, too? Do you have any random things bringing you joy I should try out next? Be sure to watch my Instagram Stories every Monday for a new installment of Monday Mail Day, and see all my finds HERE. Happy weekend, lovebugs!
