About Suger

I’m Melissa Walker Horn, 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.

For me, it’s about changing the idea that being plus size means I must be sad, unlovable and, well, lame. My blog has always been a lifestyle blog where I share stories from my life alongside outfit photos, recipes and opinion pieces.

I want to be a living, breathing, live-action example of a successful, thriving, plus-size woman. Maybe I can change someone’s mind? But on the whole, dealing with outdated thinking and assumptions is my biggest challenge.
