About Suger

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

I’ve been blogging since 2009 and implementing digital plans for small businesses since 2010. I can’t resist coffee so you’ll often spot me in local cafes with my laptop. I love social media almost as much as I love my husband and family. It can be a VERY close second some days. Ha!

Yes, the ”e” in Suger was a mistake, but I decided to run with it, and it has become a whole thing.

I love taking photos, long days at the beach, changing up my hair colour, summer in general and cheese platters accompanied by wine. Once when I first started out blogging, I was sent an email by someone who thought they had found my doppelgänger on Pinterest. It was me, just with different coloured hair.

I have billions of first cousins. It’s literally over 50, with way more second cousins after that. Which is good, because family means the world to me, and I’m determined to spend more time hanging out with them. I met my husband, and we were engaged six weeks later. We were idiots of course, but that was 15 years ago.

AND I’ve got a thing for wine, cheese and stripes but there’s no way you’ll ever catch me eating honey carrots or apricot chicken.

 

Think of me as your straight-talking interwebs BFF.

 

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.

And as far as I’m concerned there are no secret weapons to online success; you have to keep showing up for people. That’s about it! Great to meet you.

Welcome!

Filling a gap with a wrap dress

(contains gifted item) When I gave up the last of my office jobs, I gave up wearing corporate clothing AT ALL. It'd been in steady decline for a while, but that was the nail in the corporate coffin. My wardrobe was made up of relaxed fit dresses, casual tee's and...

You don’t HAVE to Christmas

What if I told you that you don't HAVE to Christmas? How would that make you feel? If it's even a tiny bit relieved let's talk for a minute, if you would. I know what this time of year can be like. The stress and pressure, the expectations and traditions to uphold....

Hear Us Roar Pop Up, Brisbane

Friday night the ladies and I popped into the Hear Us Roar pop-up shop. What an amazing night! As a stockist of a massive selection of Australian plus size fashion (size 12 - 26) to be able to go into a pop-up has been a popular strategy for the brand. They've done...

Oh boy, what have I done!

This morning I committed to a blog post. That was before I realised that my to-do list really didn't leave much room for such things. But, a promise is a promise. After digging through a bunch of drafts with no half-finished winners (judge me if you will, haha), it...
