How to coerce, bribe & force your partner to help with your blog

Welcome bloggers to a must read post. How to coerce, bribe and force your partner to help with your blog. Lovingly, of course. I mean lovingly, really I do. We love our partners, friends and family. We love our blogs. So sometimes it’s essential for the two to meet, to interconnect and intertwine. So how do you get your partner/sibling/cousin/friends involved to take photos, participate in events or posts and generally be behind the blog? How indeed. I’ve got the hot tips for you. They’ve been a long time coming. You’re welcome. Ease them into it Mr Suger didn’t start out…

How to make your own luck in life

How to make your own luck in life

How to make your own luck in life is going to be a title that for some people will push their buttons. If you feel a little trampled by luck at the moment, it’s probably annoying to hear that you can make your own. Especially when this post is written by someone like me who for various reasons of her birth; race, birthplace and stupendous family, has acknowledged her privileged position. Know I know that. But don’t go shutting off now. I am a believer in creating our own luck. And if that’s something you want for yourself ignore that little voice that…

InstaFavourite Friday! Because ankle boots…

InstaFavourite Friday! Because ankle boots…

Instafavourite Friday is a little delayed today. Mostly because I’m bumming around attempting to be a good Blog Boss at The Leave Home Blog. There is lots of new content including a new printable over there; you should be proud. But here I am back at my home away from home and sharing one of my favourite things ever, ankle boots. Now to find one of my outfits without ankle boots would be a struggle. I like to wear heels but I find the ankle boot so much easier. And let’s face it, cooler, most of the time. Don’t you…

InstaFavourite Friday! Supernormal

InstaFavourite Friday! Supernormal

Old stuff, new stuff, that’s the best part about my Instagram outfits. I wore this outfit furniture shopping with Mr Suger and when it warmed up, I stripped off the shrug and got down to some heavy-duty shopping. And considering we were riding about in a ute most the day, loading furniture and being told not to expect delivery of the rest of the items for 6 weeks, it was a perfect outfit. In my books, a perfect outfit needs two things. It needs to be easy to wear. It needs to be easy to wear. Ankle boots help too. Of…

Farmer & Sun Marketplace Cafe

Farmer & Sun Marketplace Cafe

There’s a place not far from our new house that sells fruit and vegetables like you woke up at dawn and visited a farmer’s market as the sun peaks over the horizon. But you know, all day long. That goodness, we all know I’m not a morning person. And that store, Farmer and Sun recently opened their new cafe. And short version, it’s AWESOME. How could it not be, right? Fresh produce, access to as much of it as they like. Throw in some great coffee, juices and smoothies and the morning tea/lunch crowd have their new favourite place to…

Suger’s Place: Settling In Update

Suger’s Place: Settling In Update

Home is where the heart is, right? Tell that to someone who has relied on the kindness of their sister and her family for almost six months and see what they say. They’d probably say, despite missing your sister, your BFF and your adorable nephew desperately, that having your space is awesome. Being settled in is the best. And I’m happy to report that it’s pretty much all systems go here. Sure there are boxes yet to be unpacked. Rooms with no furniture to speak of. My office is still half filled with items we plan to garage sale. But…

Street Style: Inspired By

Street Style: Inspired By

I’ve been obsessed with street style since before I started to blog about clothes. Sure the references I saw in those days were the rich and famous. Then the bloggers started to make their way onto my radar. The actual street style and the posed street style type outfit post. I became obsessed. You only have to look at my Pinterest to know that. This week, since I’ve had a wee bit of resurgence on the blog of late (wifi will do that to a girl) it felt like a good time to share my love of street style with…

Flip Side: The sequin backed dress from Lisa Kerr Designs

Flip Side: The sequin backed dress from Lisa Kerr Designs

Lisa Kerr Designs was brought to my attention a few years ago. In fact, an introduction was made, by my book-keeper the lovely Sarah. I talk about it more in this post featuring their new line. A new line that features this easy to wear tunic style dress. Sure it is probably more of tunic than dress on me, but meh, who cares. Whatever you call it, I love it, when Lisa packed it up and sent it out to me, I was pretty darn excited for it to be mine. It’s like business at the front, party at the…

#InstaFavourite Friday! Did you say stripes?

#InstaFavourite Friday! Did you say stripes?

I’ve decided that I’m going to share my favourite Instagram outfit photos here, every Friday until I get sick of it. It’s InstaFavourite Friday! Haha. I was looking back and too often the outfits I wear to go to the shops, or coffee, to hang out with my family, never really make the blog… Here is their chance! Their time to shine. Because Insta outfits are cool too, don’t you think? Today I start with stripes. Of course. No one is surprised by THAT. Haha. This outfit was a slightly winter’ed up version of my usual work style. Slouchy tee,…

Style is knowing what works for you

Style is knowing what works for you

Today I’m going to talk about my style. Or what it is that I’ve come to define as my style. I think if you’ve followed along with this blog for a little while a really clear idea of what I like and don’t like has formed. What can I say, I found my happily ever after (for now) and I’m sticking to it. To continue to metaphor, as far as what I wear I’ve kissed a lot of style frogs. And I was making out with them hard before I found the one. The look that suits you, that you love and…
