About Suger

My name? Melissa Walker Horn, but around here they call me Suger.
I’m your straight-talking interwebs BFF.

I’m a thirty-something with big feet and an even bigger mouth. Work-wise, since that feels relevant, I’m a social media consultant, small business digital marketing specialist and photographer.

Married to a wonderfully ridiculous man, I’m from a large family, which matters and has shaped who I am. I’ve got a thing for wine, cheese and stripes. And there’s no way you’ll ever catch me eating honey carrots or apricot chicken.

Blogging since 2009; I run my own business or two including a secondary blog called the Leave Home Blog. Being an Aries with a side order of ADD will do that to a girl. The desire to work for myself became the catalyst for turning my plus size fashion blog into a lifestyle blog for women who work for themselves.

I’ve had a lot of jobs, studied most things, and I’m not so great at the whole sticking with one career thing. Better luck next life, right? What I’ve always done is work for myself and run a blog. My story is one of self-awareness and confidence, a gift I wish I could offer every woman and girl out there. Maybe one day, that’s what I’ll be able to deliver.
