As my sweet Ma would say “Life is beautiful”.

My grandmother known as “Ma” taught me to live life to the fullest, to laugh often, to dance whenever and wherever possible, and to never take any days for granted. I also learned so much from her about being comfortable and confident in my own skin… and letting my authentic self shine – that’s what I’m going to be doing more of in 2020 and I hope you’ll join me! 🙌

So long, 2019! We’ve got 2020 ahead of us, so we’re using our 20/20 vision to look back on the last 12 months.

This year, we’ve had almost 149 million views on the site, nearly 25k posts, and generated over 210k comments. We were the busiest on November 29th (hello, Black Friday!) with over 1.1 million page views!

We’re so appreciative of our Hip2Save community and how much you’ve engaged with us during 2019!

Here are our 2019 highlights!
