Finally, February! January was certainly a doozie…so many exciting things, but how was it only 31 days!? Second semester is well underway for the kids, which means the final countdown for our son is really on now! Cue the anxiety and permanent lump in my throat.
He’s still waiting on news from a few more colleges, then it’s decision time! We’ll probably visit a couple campuses again, so I’m praying one really stands out for him, so he’ll have peace and excitement with his decision. Until then, we’ll continue to savor each day of this Senior year. Any advice from you mamas would be greatly appreciated!
Today we’re taking a peek back at popular posts from December and January. Some
weeks days it seems I’m doing nothing but chasing a To Do List, or playing catch-up, so it’s nice to take a moment each month and look back at the projects and content I managed to create. I never got around to recapping December, so here’s what’s been going on around here for the past two months.
Well obviously I have to lead with this one…certainly the biggest, most exciting…the launch of our Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Resort Collection! This is our second Collection with Gibson, and you fully-embraced it! Many of the pieces sold out the first day, and your excitement was truly palpable. I’m excited to share what’s coming next! (Stay tuned for restock and reorder info later this week, too!)
I didn’t tackle the launch of Resort on my own, I had a whole tribe of beautiful women supporting it! It Takes a Village shared many of the women, all shapes and sizes, in their favorite Resort pieces.
Shooting a Collection of 45 pieces is no easy task, but it’s tons of fun! Now that you’ve seen all the pieces, it’s fun to peek back at the Behind-the-Scenes of the photoshoot!
Obviously I couldn’t do it without my Mama Sugarplum, and we included a Dressing Room Diaries version of the full Collection…sharing how she wears each piece, along with multiple styling ideas for each.
Our Guest Room got a major update with the addition of some really fun, graphic wallpaper. I’ve been a fan of this paper for ages and was so excited to find a spot for it in our house. Now we’re thismuch closer to a finished room!
We’ve been talking all things Resort lately…in the middle of a Polar Vortex, no less! If you’re still freezing your buns off, here are some of my favorite Cozy Winter finds.
Marks & Spencer rolls out some of the best new arrivals so frequently that they’ve quickly become one of my go-to retailers. And it looks like you’re loving them, too! Their price points are amazing, shipping is free and fast, and the styles so cute. This post featured 8 Darling Sweaters Under $40.
Our travel calendar is filling up fast, and I shared the first post of the year in this Great Stays feature on La Serena Villas in Palm Springs. With the stellar service, jaw-dropping design-details, and the cutest little breakfast baskets, it’s definitely one of my top 5 hotels we’ve ever stayed.
My One Word for 2019 came at me hard and fast, and is definitely going to be a work in progress for me.
Running low on Winter outfit ideas? Here’s two easy-to-recreate looks, and both super affordable!
I shared my top 5 Tips for a Better Night Sleep…my tried-and-true method for the best possible sleep. Next up, I need to tackle going to bed earlier!!
Curious what the most popular buys were for Hi Sugarplum readers last year? I rounded up the Top 10 in this post, and no surprise, your faves are all mine, too!
Christmas is packed up for another year, but you might want to add our Christmas Home Tour to your Pinterest boards for inspiration later!
Giving back is a major theme in our household, and one of the most important lessons I want to instill in our kids. I shared a few of the ways we do that as a family in this post.
I share a lot of things here, but there are a handful that my tried-and-true, go-to, daily finds. I rounded up all my Favorite Things in this post. Are any of them on your list?
We also had another round of Sugarplum Style, and everyone’s favorite, Dressing Room Diaries, featuring tons of new finds, and recent outfits (and Mama Sugarplum!). We also brought back the popular Q & A post, You Ask, I Answer. I’m hoping to make it a regular around here.
February is sure to be another fun one! Mr. SP and I have a little warm-weather getaway next week, followed by a family ski trip to Winter Park Resort! Did you know they were just awarded North America’s Number 1 Ski Resort?!
We’re so excited to finally see some snow this season (they got 5-feet of new snow in January!), and experience all the fun in that darling Colorado town. Have you been? I’d love any tips and suggestions for the area! Plus tips on what we need to pack for serious Winter weather!
Thank you so much for stopping by when you do…your support and comments mean the world to me! Happy February, lovebugs!
here are some good places to start:
