Mama Sugarplum’s Favorite Things

Happy Monday, loves, and welcome back to a new week! I hope you had a wonderful, festive-filled weekend! We attended the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s ‘Christmas Pops’ concert Friday, so the sprit is flowing over here! It’s one of our favorite family traditions, and it officially feels like Christmas now.

I’ve got a fun post for you I know you’re going to love… today is all about my darling Mama Sugarplum!

Y’all loved my Sugarplum Favorite Things, and today is Mama Sugarplum’s turn to share the products she swears by day after day, along with a few on her Christmas Wish List. We share several favorites, but there’s definitely some new things I need to try for myself! Take it away, Mom!

Mama Sugarplum’s Favorite Things //

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14

1. 6-Quart Air Fryer // After hearing Cassie go on about the air fryer she got during the start of football season, I decided it would be great to have one for easier dinner prep. I added it to my wishlist and am hoping “someone” (wink) gets it for me!

2. Zella Half-Zip Pullover // This pullover jacket is so cozy I just had to have one! I love the zipper and high collar to keep my neck warm.

3. Waterpik // As we age, we have to take extra care of our gums as well as our teeth. This waterpik has been a life saver… or should I say teeth saver! This one is my favorite because it doesn’t take up much space and is great for travel, too. This girl wants to keep her pearly whites as long as possible!

4. Valentino Perfume // My all time favorite!  My hubby knows to gift me a new bottle every year… after all, Christmas is the time to get the pricey stuff!

5. Our Place Always Pan // If you haven’t gotten yourself an Always Pan yet, what are you waiting for?! It is an absolute dream to clean up, and mine still looks as good as the day I got it (or rather, the day Cass gifted it to me!). She gifted me the Oven Pan last year, and I use it every single day!

6. adidas Ultraboost Sneakers // I know I put these on my list every year, but they really are the only shoes I walk in… period!

7. Fleece-Lined Leggings // I found these leggings a couple of years ago to wear in the winter and man do they make a cold morning walk possible. No excuse to skip my morning walk because it’s cold with these!

8. UGG Slide Slippers // As a retired lady, my most-worn “shoes” are slippers. I love the open-toe option so my feet don’t get too hot (ahem, lady issues). 

9. Bombas Ankle Socks // Cassie gave me a pair of Bombas socks to see what I thought of them, and I can tell you my feet have never been so happy! They are great for keeping your feet comfortable but also warm in the winter and cool the summer. (Code SUGARPLUM will save you 20%!)

10. 6-Quart Slow Cooker // The time has finally come for me to get a new slow cooker since the handle broke off of my previous one! This is the mother of all slow cookers… it does it all! No longer having to use other pans for prep before making a meal is a game-changer. I can’t wait to use the steamer for veggies!

11. Window Cleaning Cloths // SO glad I stumbled on these cleaning cloths… they are THE best find for me, and I know Cass is obsessed with them, too! Spotless, streak-free windows with just a little water and no hard scrubbing!

12. Moonlight Pajamas // Here comes the broken record again! These are the best to wear year-round! My husband loves them so much he said too bad they don’t make them for men… well surprise! They do and guess who’s getting these for Christmas?!

13. Collagen Powder // My doctor was surprised at my last bone density test and very pleased it was normal. Not to mention all the benefits to my nails and hair…all thanks to this (another Cassie Sugarplum influence, ha!)!

14. Colleen Rothschild Products // Cassie introduced me to Colleen’s products years ago, and now it’s the only skincare I use… morning and night! There is such a difference in my skin, and it’s crazy to see it looks better now than when I was 10 years younger! My go-to’s are Sheer Renewal Cream, Radiant Cleansing Balm, Age Renewal Super Serum, Retinol Supreme Night Oil, and I’m crazy for the brand-new Illuminating Tinted Eye Cream. (Code CYBER will save you 30% site-wide!)

Thanks for sharing your list, Mom! I hope y’all liked seeing her picks as much as I did, maybe they gave you some fresh gift ideas!

As for me, I’m hoping to find these under the tree, and maybe another bottle (or two!) of this. You can find my Sugarplum Favorite Things HERE.

I’d love to hear what’s on your Wish List this holiday! Do you share any favorites with Mama Sugarplum and me?
