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.

How I became a Level One Seller on Fiverr

When we left off in my last post, I was 45 days into my experiment. I was hopeful that a conversation would turn into a sale and asked you to keep your fingers crossed. Cliffhanger! It's been pretty much two months to the day since my last blog update. Even then, I...

Summer’s Best Cheap and Cheerful Wines

While I have smugly advanced past the cheapest of wines, that doesn't mean I'm not interested in getting value for money. I think maybe I just drank too much of the Accomplice Sav. Blanc back in the day to even stomach anything like it these days. Haha. Recently I...

Was Mr Big Carrie’s retirement plan all along?

Recently I was watching Sex and the City and as a thirty-something trying to do her best to run a business, live life and prepare for the future I found myself adding up the outfit changes and designer pieces, the apartment and meals, not to mention the taxis....
