Happy Monday, loves, and welcome back to a new week! I’ve got a lot of fun planned for the week ahead… but today is all about my darling Mama Sugarplum!
Y’all loved my Sugarplum Favorite Things, so I thought it’d be fun to ask Mama Sugarplum to share the products she swears by day after day. I love her list, and think I’ll have to try some of them out myself!
one. Fringed Throw Blanket // This throw has been a favorite for years, and I’ve yet to find anything else this soft (or for such a great price!). I have several colors and may not stop until I have them all! There’s a reason this is a repeat item from last year’s list!
two. Colleen Rothschild CBD Oil // I credit Colleen Rothschild products for transforming my skin in the last several years, and just recently discovered her CBD Oil. It is SO calming on my red and sensitive skin, and really helps to soothe rosacea! The smell is a little unique and woodsy, but doesn’t bother me at all.
three. Fuzzy Memory Foam Slippers // I love slippers but also don’t like my feet to be too hot. Cass gifted me these on her last GxHSP photoshoot, and they’re perfect! Super cushiony and soft, with a nice sole that isn’t slippery.
four. Pajamas // I love getting ready for bed! Who am I kidding… I put these on at 5pm each day and don’t take them off until I’m ready to go outside for my walk the next morning! I’m not ashamed to admit I have five pairs of these pajamas, and am adding the cute animal print this year. They’re the only style I wear!
five. Window Cleaning Cloths // I love these E-cloth window cleaners… all it takes is water and a light swipe! I hated to clean the windows and would put it off for months. It’s so easy and fast now, I’m cleaning our family room windows way more often. It has improved the view of our backyard!!
six. Bra // After losing weight, having to find another bra I loved was a challenge, but this is the perfect one! It gives me the lift I need and the right amount of padding. It’s so soft and comfortable, and it stays in place all day long!
seven. Leggings // I have found so many new favorites from Cassie’s posts, including these workout leggings (I have three pairs!). But now that it’s starting to get colder outside, I needed some warmer leggings and guess what?! I found them in that Amazon brand we’ve all been loving! The fleece lining is just what I need for these cold morning walks. This sweatshirt is super cute, and so ‘me.’
eight. Puzzle Mat // I love working puzzles, but it’s sometimes hard to find the right long-term place to set them up. It takes this girl a while to complete a 1,000+ piece puzzle, but this mat has solved my problem! I just roll it up, and store the unfinished puzzle, or easily move it from room to room. I just ordered this puzzle and this one, too, to do over the holidays.
nine. Coffee Maker // I first shared this coffee maker last year, and it’s still one of the best purchases I’ve made. We’re big coffee drinkers in the morning, but if someone wants one more cup, we don’t have to make a whole new pot! Plus you can use your own coffee grounds… no K-Cups needed! I have my eye on these cute mugs now!
ten. Album // I love Christmas music, especially vinyls on my record player! I grabbed Carrie Underwood’s new Christmas album…HOLY MOLY that girl can sing!
eleven. Colleen Rothschild Products (all 20% off!) // I started using Colleen’s products a few years ago, after I saw the transformation in Cassie’s skin. I swear the Retinol Supreme Night Oil and the Retinol Supreme Eye Serum have taken 10 years off of my face! I’m also a huge fan of the CBD Oil, the Age Renewal Super Serum, and the Radiant Cleansing Balm. (See Mama Sugarplum’s full skincare routine HERE.)
twelve. Diamond Initial Necklace // My favorite daughter gifted me this necklace last year with my husband’s initial. I smile every time I wear it, and it definitely puts a smile on his face, too! I also love these earrings for making every outfit more special.
thirteen. Perfume (on sale!) // This is my all-time favorite perfume! This set comes with a full size and a travel size, to pack for whenever we old folks get to travel again!
fourteen. VineOh! Gift Set // Cassie gifted me with this fun subscription a few years ago, and it is one of my favorite gifts ever! I get giddy every time the box of gifts and wine arrives on my doorstep! (Use code CASSIE for a free third bottle of wine for the life of your subscription. Over $200 value for just $59!)
fifteen. Adidas Ultraboost Sneakers // These are the most comfortable athletic shoes I’ve ever owned! I love my morning walks (can you tell?!), and these sneakers keep my joints from aching and my feet from cramping.
sixteen. Silk Pillowcase // I feel so fancy every time I get in and out of bed because of this pillowcase! It really does help keep my hair more manageable, and it ensures I don’t wake up with sleep marks on my face.
Thanks so much for sharing those, Mom!! Definitely a fun list! And as long as we’re talking about things on our Favorites List, how about what’s on my Wish List?! If anyone has a direct line to Santa, feel free to pass this along. K, thanks.
one. Birdies Leopard Flats // You know I have a thing for leopard flats, in fact I’ve worn this pair almost to the ground. I’ve heard such amazing things about Birdies shoes… for both their incredible craftsmanship and unbelievable comfort. I love the print and almond toe of these flats.
two. Bose SleepBuds // You may recall me singing the praises of these SleepBuds a few years ago… they’re an absolute game-changer for sleeping. Especially if you have snorers, dogs, neighbors, street noise, etc. But unfortunately the first version didn’t have great battery life or connectivity (they connect via Bluetooth to an app full of sounds!), so they pulled them off the market. (I continued to sleep with them, even without the sounds… that’s how hooked I am!)
Well now they’re back and better than ever!! Bose insists all the kinks have been worked out, and I can. not. wait to get my hands on a new pair. They literally allow me to sleep anywhere. And no more kicking Mr. SP in the middle of the night, because I won’t be able to hear him, ha!
three. Plush Short Robe // I’ve never been much of a robe person, but all of a sudden I find myself wishing I had one!? Maybe it’s because the weather has gotten colder and I want to reach for something cozy after showers… but this one looks so luxe. And the perfect length!
four. Santal Candle // I’m completely obsessed with Le Labo’s Santal 33 perfume, so I know it would be a dream to have my house smell of it, too. Definitely a splurge, but spending so much time at home has given me a new appreciation for the small joys of scents.
five. Countertop Nugget Ice Maker // Nugget ice at home… what more do I need to say?! Obviously it’s a completely unnecessary luxury, but again… I’m all about the joys at home these days!
six. Striped Down Jacket // I just discovered this vintage-inspired, colorful brand, and I’m crazy smitten! In fact, I’ve got a full Brand Crush post about them tomorrow! I adore all the jacket styles, especially this one and this one.
I’m also hoping to find more of these eye patches in my stocking, and maybe another bottle of this luxury detergent. 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 or me?

This post! Some must tries here. Thx, Mama SP!
In the winter, I like to break the book of records in my pj’s. 24 hours later, I’m still wearing them!
Ps/Mama SP- Listen to Celine Dionne’s “Oh, Holy Night”. Divine! Sends a chill up your spine. : )
Oh thank you for the suggestion, I’ll be sure to let her know! xo,C
I’m disappointed that these gift guides are getting very repetitive. We’ve seen most of these products dozens of times from this site. I need new ideas, not the same products over and over.
Hi Emily! I’m sorry that the guides this year weren’t giving you more inspiration! I can’t help what Mama SP, Mr. SP, and the Sugarplum Teens want to put on their guides and lists, but we’ll keep this in mind for next year! xo, Cassie
The Birdies quality were nice, but as someone with longer toes the arch did not hit in the right place as all & made them uncomfortable for me to wear (essentially pressed into the ball behind big toe). So I had let mine go. I also remember I had to size up on them ½ a size to accommodate my M width feet. And when I did that the customer service was fairly slow on responses, as I had to follow up with them twice & never had my phone calls answered (they responded by email after two weeks). They may have improved since then though. 🙂
Oh goodness!! I know they’re a fairly new company, so hopefully those kinks have been worked out! xo, C
Bose sleep buds are back? Hurrah! I want some for my husband. We hated to give them back the first time around but the battery recharging was such a problem. Thrilled they’re back and improved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Patricia, no one is more excited than I am!!!!!!!!! xo, C
You do so much of the hard work for your followers! I’m close to your mom’s age and always welcome her recommendations! But also, I love all your lists. Find someone for everyone in my life even on Lil Miss lists! Love all the lists you create! And they seem to come right when I need an idea. I’ve never given a gift for someone at your suggestion that the person didn’t like. I’m sending my best friend a VineOh gift for Christmas and I’m so excited for her to get it. We don’t usually do such big gifts but a life long best friend you can’t give too much. Thank you Cassie for all your hard work. I appreciate the job you do.
Oh thank you so much, Kathleen! The Sugarplums work hard on all the gift guides, so I love hearing that they’re helpful for y’all! xo, C
