Lil' Sugarplum Gives Back

Lil' Sugarplum has the most adorable hair accessories for little girls! Haley and I love all of the designs. Lil' Sugarplum was founded by Monique, a stay at home mom, who got her inspiration for her lovely designs when she had her first little girl.

Even some celebrity babies have been seen in Lil' Sugarplum designs! These beautiful creations have been featured in magazines and websites. Check out the celebrity baby photos here!

Lil' Sugarplum offers a variety of hair accessories and other goodies including baby hair clips, toddler and girl hair clips, holiday hair clips, baby and toddler ponytail holders, dog bows, necklaces, hair clip holders, baby booties, badly stick on bows and baby hats. I certainly could have used some of those baldy stick on bows when Haley was a just a few months old. You can find so many adorable hair clips, bows and headbands to top off any outfit. These are perfect for Easter outfits!

I adore the styles of Lil' Sugarplum and I love that Monique is raising her children at home and using her creative side to create and share her beautiful creations. What I love most is that Lil' Sugarplum gives back!

Lil' Sugarplum gives back to the March of Dimes. The March of Dimes is working to prevent premature births.
