Make something, even if it sucks: Ask Suger

Considering I was in my office this morning before 6 am, you'd think I'd be ready to roll with this email early, right? Apparently not. I got caught up making a few changes to the blog branding I had a dream about last night. Saying it came to me in a dream seems a little out there, but that's...

How much I made on Fiverr in my first year

It all started with a simple question, can I earn money on Fiverr as a photographer? Keen to get into doing more product photography, I was looking for a way to find clients and generate more work for myself. A YouTube video about a freelance copywriter on CNBC's Millennial Money convinced me...

Feeling left behind in life: Ask Suger

A couple of weeks ago, I received an Ask Suger talking about the changes they had been going through in their life and how they felt behind everyone else they knew. And it wasn't that they were not getting what they wanted, feeling as if they were taking giant steps backwards. So, they wanted...

When did I go missing from my life - suger Coat It

How did I disappear from my life?

Where did I go? That's the question I've been asking myself lately. How did I manage to disappear from my life? Somewhere around late 2020, I stopped documenting my life, being in pictures and outside of the weekly Suger News emails sharing. Where did I go? I don't know. All I know is I was...

A few of my favourite things - Suger Coat It

A few of my favourite things…

A little while back, I thought it would be fun to do favourite things kind of post. Feature books and products, homewares to skincare—stuff I've seen on the interwebs in a roundup style post. But then, from memory, it was Afterpay Day. And the very idea of sending out a post flogging stuff,...

Where to Buy Wide Fit Boots for Plus-Size Women

Welcome to the next instalment of the Where to Buy posts. This week it is wide fit boots. Boots for the plus size, large legged amongst us. Some have extended shoe sizing. Others offer wide fitting calf and ankle boots. Earlier this week, it occurred to me that it was feeling like the cooler...

A stack of magazines including peppermint magazine

Do you still subscribe to magazines?

I've always loved the glossy pages of a magazine. Not literally, the glossy pages drive me nuts with fingerprints, but you know what I mean. Whether it was about fashion or home decor, far off adventures or food. A lot of why I wanted to be a writer when I was a child was because of magazines....

Rising water doesn’t differentiate {Gympie Floods 2022}

As some of you know, my home town is under flood as I write this. A major flood with a level that is predicted to continue rising. Expected to exceed the previous highest flood on record; February 1999 (21.94m). I've been awake since around 5 am reading the overnight updates of the water...

This is Fine

I know all about being fine

Starting the year out rushing to get back to work with emails flooding my inbox wasn't ideal. I was overwhelmed, and on the brink of panic most days, I got on with things. And when asked? Of course, I was fine. Tired, but fine. Busy, but fine. I know all about being fine. Being fine is such a...

Lizzo brings us Watch Out For The Big Grrrls in March 2022 - suger coat it

Lizzo’s watch out for the big grrrls

Ummm, excuse me, internet, but have you heard about Lizzo's new show? "Watch Out For The Big Grrrls" is coming, and I'm not sure we're ready, to be honest. It's a dance competition for a chance to win a spot on Lizzo's World Tour. Now, I don't know much about dance. My experience ended when I...

ASOS Oversized White Sumer Dress - Plus Size

My Go-To White Summer Dress

It started in the lead up to Christmas. We were heading north, and I knew that meant long days in the heat or pool, coming out for meals or to sleep. So, I wanted something that looked festive but was easy to wear. Enter this accidentally oversized swing dress in white brocade. No, that's not...

Tie Dye Dress with Birkenstocks - Plus Size Casual OOTD

Tie Dye Dress

With things around here settling in for the year, it felt like time to get back into the swing blogging-wise. Kelvin opted to have most of January off from the business (doing odd jobs here and there). And I was helping out with the extended school holiday childminding while restarting my work...

Where to buy plus size one piece swimsuits - suger coat it

Need a plus size one-piece swimsuit? I’ve got you covered.

Around here, we embrace the bikini body, especially for the fellow long torso friends. But as much love as I have for the bikini, tankini and all their 'ini friends, sometimes I want something more. I want to be able to move freely, without concern for what I'm wearing and any potential 'cup...

Diaries and Planners you recommended

Planners? Handwriting? But what about digital calendars? I admit it; I'm a paper-and-pen kind of girl. Especially when it comes to planning and scheduling my LIFE. I've often failed with digital planners and calendars (RIP Google Calendar) and keep returning to a good old fashion, usually...
