Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! Sloan and I are celebrating her 17th birthday with a weekend trip to Kansas City for a volleyball tournament! I’ve got a team dinner planned at Chicken N Pickle tomorrow night, but the rest of the time we’ll be camped out at the Convention Center. If you have other recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
Crazy to think, but April starts tomorrow, which means the kids have just 8 weeks of school left! Our son will actually be done in 6 weeks… how did that happen so fast?! We only get him for a couple weeks before he moves to Kansas for an internship this summer, so lots of change around here.
Today I’ve got a hodgepodge of new finds and latest happenings to share, so let’s get to this month’s This & That…
FlyBrow Fun //
Y’all… my dearest, most talented friend, Suzie, (the genius behind FlyBrow, not to mention, who also transforms me for every Gibsonlook x Hi Sugarplum Collection!) has launched her very first product, and I could not be more proud or excited for her!! The best at-home lamination kit is HERE, and I’m obsessed!!
In three easy steps, my brows went from puny to WOW… and I did it all myself at home! Each kit comes with detailed step-by-step instructions anyone can follow, and enough product for three laminations!! She poured her heart and soul, not to mention, years of eyebrow expertise, into making this product, and I am beyond thrilled (for her and my eyebrows!).
And to celebrate and thank y’all for the love over the years, she’s given us an exclusive code for 10% off… SUGARPLUM10!
Decked Out & In Stock! //
Did you see?! Our best-selling GLxHSP Decked Out Day Dress is back in stock! The white sold out in a day, so I was thrilled we are able to bring it back! And we even added a solid black, too! It’s the cutest, flirtiest little number you’ll wear on repeat! Use code SUGARPLUM10 to save 10%!
S-E-C You Soon, College //
Little Miss and I spent her Spring Break road-tripping through the SEC, and we had the best time! We toured Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and Tennessee… plus checked out Furman, Belmont, and Vanderbilt!! She definitely has a few favorites… and I just spent the week beaming with pride and gratitude.
How is this sweet girl already 17 and a year-and-a-half away from college?!
We stumbled on the absolute cutest hotel on our road trip… The Graduate! Turns out, they have them all across the country near college campuses, and each is personalized to fit the school! So much style and attention to detail!
Morning Routine Must-Have //
This new tinted eye cream from Colleen Rothschild has become a must-have part of my morning routine, and the results are astonishing! It’s a daytime eye cream that’s packed with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and smooth wrinkles, caffeine to de-puff, and pearlized pigments to create instant brightness!! It’s truly a miracle in a bottle… and SUGARPLUM20 will save you 20%!

Let There Be Color //
Can you believe we’ve been in this new house for 8 months already?! I certainly can’t! Now that we’ve settled in and lived in the spaces for awhile, I’m ready to crank up the decorating… and the rug of my color-loving dreams arrived last week!
I had a very specific design and style in mind for this room, and was thrilled when I discovered this Etsy shop that creates custom rugs! I sent them some photos and instructions, and a few days later they sent over a rendering and quote… and WHA-BAM… gorgeous rug!!
And what’s even cooler, is it helped support these incredibly talented artisans in a tiny rural town in India! I got the absolute sweetest note from them, and it feels so special to know that our rug was not only made with so much love and attention to detail, but it helped to support a community. Definitely check out their entire shop for a big dose of gorgeous color!
Faherty Finds //
Cutest new arrivals from Faherty! The absolute softest organic cottons, and all sustainably made, I just adore this company. Here are a few of my fave picks from their new arrivals, and my code SUGARPLUM20 saves you 20% off site-wide! Expect to see this gauze set on repeat!

Merit Crushing //
I discovered this clean beauty brand last year, and the blush balm instantly shot to the top of my Sugarplum Favorite Things list! It is the absolute prettiest glowy-flush, and goes on so smooth with no tugging or smearing makeup. In fact, I’m so obsessed that I drag all my friends to my bathroom when they come over just so they can try it!
Happy Spring Tops //
Dallas has literally flip-flopped between 80 degrees and freezing temps for the last month … what’s a girl to wear?! All I know is I’m ready to pack up my sweaters and start wearing some darling spring tops … and there’s no shortage of great finds this season.
Pair them with your favorite light or white denim, and sneakers, flats, or sandals, and you’ve got yourself a perfect spring uniform. I shared 10 of my favorite spring tops HERE.
Look For Less //
I added another of my favorite faux-fiddle trees to the house (this time in the beastly 8-foot height since we have such high ceilings)… and she makes this such a happy corner! When it came time to finding a planter, I didn’t want to spend a fortune, but wanted to find something worthy of her splendor… and hit the jackpot with this one!
It looks just like heavy cement or ceramic, but it’s actually lightweight plastic! And under $30! Yes ma’am… you’re going to want to run for this find!
Monday Mail Day //
When I polled you guys last month or so ago to see what you wanted to see more of this year… Monday Mail Day was definitely a repeating request! I’m thrilled you like my random, QVC-style finds I share each week! Here’s a peek of what arrived the last few weeks… but if you only buy one thing, let it be these No-Show Socks! Okay, and this Makeup Brush Cleaner is pure magic, as are these No Hangover Vitamins!
Hello, Cuties //
Keep Calm & Carry-On //
A Hat Trick //
Speaking of packing, hat clips are key to saving bag space and also going hands-free while you travel. I was determined to find an affordable option that’s as strong and reliable as the pricier versions… so I ordered FIFTEEN different hat clips and ran them all through a very unofficial and rigorous test… and found three very clear winners!
This one has a super powerful magnet with a keyring-style attachment, this powerful clip is perfect for bags without a loop or for carrying two hats, and this 3-pack is super strong at an unbelievable price!
Wowza, Walmart! //
Um… cuteness check on aisle 13! Walmart has been slaying the fashion game lately, but these pieces even turn it up a notch! It’s all under $50, and I’m a size XS in all pieces.
How’s that for a random round-up? But that’s the This & That of life around here lately! Happy Friday, lovebugs… and Happy Happy Birthday to our darling Sloan! You are loved to the moon and back!!
