Letting Go vs. Holding On

Letting Go vs. Holding On

This post could have just as easily been titled, sometimes you’re just at the beach with sand in your face. It’s about letting go and holding on. It’s about knowing the difference and not knowing the difference and trying to figure it all out. It’s about choices. As I sit in the sand, the wind is buffeting my face and beach umbrella flaps perilously behind me, I think to myself, this makes no sense at all. Why am I here, forcing a day to be perfect when it’s clearly not. Why do I do that? Over and over again. Why…

Confident You returns for 2016!

Confident You returns for 2016!

It was the first of November 2012 when the original Confident You challenge launched. I’d settled into blogging and I was receiving emails from people who read the blog. They wanted to know about my confidence. Where it came from, how I maintain it and what it took to create living it every day. So I created the challenge. 28 days because it was long enough to form a habit. Long enough to make changes in your life and see genuine results. And people did. My inbox overflowed, the photos came in (and really, Instagram was still pretty new) and…

BeMe takes us into the cooler months

BeMe takes us into the cooler months

Bought to you by beme beme has sent out the word. It’s move over Summer, step aside Autumn, we are heading towards Winter and even the Queenslanders have gotten wind of such things. Literally, it was WINDY AS HECK around here last weekend. It brought with it the cooler weather and we were rejoicing! Brrrr. So what that means is that the layers start coming out in force. No more flimsy, sheer layers… Nope. The day of the knit is here. I planned an outfit and everything. beme asked me to share the newly released May range, I told them no…

Living your greatness, errr how?

Living your greatness, errr how?

Living your greatness? I know what you’re thinking, how do you even do that? How in a world filled with jobs and mortgages and other more major concerns do you find a way to be who you are and live that? I’m asking. Really. I have some ideas on the subject, obviously. This post will be pretty lame otherwise. But what do you think about it? DO you think about it? Where does your greatness lie? One of my favourite quotes is the one in the image above. Live your greatness and let the world catch it. It implies that…

Suger’s Instagram for Business Workbook: Out Now!

Suger’s Instagram for Business Workbook: Out Now!

In 2015 I conducted a workshop focusing on Instagram for Business. And not just any kind of Instagram for Business, the kind that doesn’t creep people out. The kind without the follow for a follow then unfollow strategy. The kind where you don’t spam like people or beg them to ‘check out your profile’ in their comments. None of that. Just the plain old building a community of people interested in you and your business. I called it the non-creep guide to Instagram for Business. The workshop was a roaring success. We were SO into the content that we went…

Moody Monochrome

Moody Monochrome

Moody monochrome outfits are the things of autumn and winter, don’t you think? And it’s Autumn here so it’s time right? NOT RIGHT. Autumn really didn’t show up here yet. It’s been warm during the day and the sun still bites. So why then am I wearing pleather leggings and boots? Because they’re AWESOME. That’s why. Even if they did sort of get stuck when I was pulling them on. And that Instagram Husband of mine didn’t think to let me know they were bunching at my knees (that’s a firing offence, don’t you think? nah, probably not, tripods aren’t…

Casual Mustard

Casual Mustard

Here’s the thing, I have this obsession with mustard the colour, and well the condiment too now that I mention it. But it doesn’t really like me back. But I keep trying and it keeps rejecting me and I keep trying… And well, you get the point. Ordering some newness at ASOS a little while back I had the option of this dress in a couple of colours. I chose mustard because I’m a glutton for punishment. It arrived, I loved it and it as usual the bitch didn’t love me back. Haha. But I’m forcing it by using the patterned…

Stripe, quilting, patterns, layering… Autumn

Stripe, quilting, patterns, layering… Autumn

Well, if it’s not autumn where you are just know I feel your pain. Even when I spent the weekend in Melbourne, it really wasn’t autumn weather. More like, maybe I could sleep with a sheet and a blanket perhaps weather. But that doesn’t mean I’m not turning my attentions to what I’m wearing when the weather cools down. If it ever cools down. Remind me I said that when it’s minus two here and I’m complaining because it’s freezing. So I went to Melbourne and part of that trip with the 17 Sundays VIP night. Super fun night and let…
