We're bringing this where to buy post to you today by request! Where to buy plus size pyjamas and sleepwear for the curvy folks amongst us. Which, when I first received the request, I was like, errr this is going to be a short ass list. But, the more I looked into it,...
You want it, sure, but do you need it? One of the first comparisons I made when I purchased my iPad Pro last year was the iPad Pro vs. Standard iPad thing, especially when it came to the uses with the Apple Pencil. At the time, I was looking to replace my 2009 Macbook...
Skillshare, I love it. What can I say? I could happily spend the day with Skillshare courses playing in the background of whatever I'm doing. And as someone who couldn't say no to whatever new online course was being offered by the influencer of the moment, this is a...
This week we saw another brand launch into the Australian plus-size fashion market. Fronted by one of the biggest names in plus, American model Ashley Graham, with the locals following loyally behind. The Commonry burst onto the scene with the sort of ripples a...

build your confidence
A big part of what we do here is build up your confidence so you can tackle whatever life throws at you, demand more and get it. If that sounds up your ally, make sure you check out the confident you archives; they're full of gold from over a decade of blogging.
you want to get a life, right?
Buy back your freedom with a business, side hustle or blog of your own. I've got a ton of posts about my journey and how I've been able to quit my job and work for myself from home successfully.
here to steal my style?
Amazing! You've come to the right place. I've been blogging my outfits since 2015'ish, so the archives are full of great (and not so great) choices for you to replicate in your wardrobe.
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.
