About Suger

I’m Melissa Walker Horn, but around here they call me Suger.

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.

 

Think of me as your straight-talking interwebs BFF.

 

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.

I don’t know if you heard…

But as of two weeks ago, I am back working for myself 100% of the time! Eeeekkk. We made it, team. AGAIN. If you've been following this blog for a while (hands up!) you would know this isn't the first time. I had a cafe when I was 21 (craziness! Haha) and there was a...

Oh hey, 30’ish podcast

It's announcement time! Samara and I are relaunching our podcast, Suger + Ink as the 30'ish podcast. It's about that time right now where we are madly trying to pre-record some episodes and get everything set up to go. But before I go into all of that, let me tell you...

When Kate broke me

Recently I hit the road for a bit of work/play adventure in Mackay (and Proserpine!). I was heading up to stay with my friend Kate, maybe you know her, and attempt to be helpful in the home stretch of her renovation/visit. The second to last time I was in Mackay Kate...
