create a life you love.

When I say 'create a life' I mean take your life and everything that is part of it and make it look how you want it to look in all areas. Look at your relationships, finances, career and how you are with yourself; what doesn't look the way you want it to? When you imagine your dream life or your ideal day, how does it look? If you can see it's time to get to work. And if you can't, well that just means it's time to let yourself dream a little. The good news is whichever of those options you are in now, you've come to the right place. 

 

hey, i'm suger

I’m Melissa Walker Horn, around here they call me Suger. I'm a photographer and business owner; a sneaker-wearing, wine-drinking o.g. blogger. I love a casual ootd, my family + the beach. I’ve got a thing for cheese, but there’s no way you’ll ever catch me eating apricot chicken. I'm here for the casual ootd and stripes, and I hate fussy, overly styled clothing and ruffles. 

My story is one of self-awareness and confidence, a gift I wish I could offer every woman and girl out there. When it comes to this blog, that’s all I hope to deliver – to you, to your friend, daughter or a lady that you met on the street. And as far as I’m concerned, you have to keep showing up for people.
