How I became a Level One Seller on Fiverr

When we left off in my last post, I was 45 days into my experiment. I was hopeful that a conversation would turn into a sale and asked you to keep your fingers crossed. Cliffhanger! It's been pretty much two months to the day since my last blog update. Even then, I knew...

Best Cheap + Cheerful Summer Wines - Suger Coat It

Summer’s Best Cheap and Cheerful Wines

While I have smugly advanced past the cheapest of wines, that doesn't mean I'm not interested in getting value for money. I think maybe I just drank too much of the Accomplice Sav. Blanc back in the day to even stomach anything like it these days. Haha. Recently I...

Was Mr Big Carrie’s retirement plan all along?

Recently I was watching Sex and the City and as a thirty-something trying to do her best to run a business, live life and prepare for the future I found myself adding up the outfit changes and designer pieces, the apartment and meals, not to mention the taxis. Sure, I...

Plus-Size Shorts for Summer; Get Your Legs Out!

It's that time, team, shorts season! I mean, as a Queenslander, pretty much every season is shorts season, but you know what I mean. I've talked about how to find and wear shorts as a plus-size woman on this blog before. Of course, I have; this blog is a million years...

Show Your Work by Austin Kleon - Review by Suger Coat It

Show Your Work

Ever wonder how TikToks can, as is the case with XXL Scrunchie & Co, one of my new favourites, exponentially grow their business? How can social media sell out an entire line of products in a few hours, less in the case of those with larger platforms? So what is it...

Can I make money as a photographer on Fiverr? {Part 1}

The videos pop up on YouTube all the time, twenty-somethings making tens of thousands of dollars a month online. When you dive a little further, you’ll find a few main ways they do this. But the one that grabbed my attention (first) was Fiverr. I knew of the site, of...

Where to buy women's shoes for large feet - Suger Coat It

Where to buy on trend women’s shoes for large feet

Welcome, fellow large footed friend. If your internet search for women's shoes for large feet has landed you here, I’m glad you found us. I know that search well. You don’t get to be a 178cm tall woman without big feet. It’s par for the course, as they say. These days,...

Learning to embrace procrastination - Suger Coat It

I’m learning to embrace procrastination

I've displaced myself again. As I mentioned in the email on the weekend, I'm having the floor of my office and the adjoining patio fished with epoxy. So, that meant time to pack it all up again. Which is, I have to say, a pretty smooth process these days. Changing my...

Man stands on path leading to rock outcrop over the ocean - North Stradbroke Island

I’m grateful for you, Kelvin

This one is easy, as far as choosing one thing every day to be grateful for, because today is Kelvin and my 16th wedding anniversary. Go, team. It feels like so long ago that we first met, and yet, not simultaneously. There we were, just a couple of kids with no idea....

What time off social media taught me about what's next for me - Suger Coat It

Taking a social media break helped me figure myself out

Over the last month, on my social media break (as much as work allows), I've noticed a few things. Things about my life that I completely missed in the non-stop app switch that is social media. Firstly, I'm not very satisfied with my life. I keep looking for meaning and...

My mum staples her chips packets.

I went to the 'snacks' cupboard at our office today. I work with my Mum, we share an office. I knew I was pretty much out of appropriate snacks and was going to pinch some of the plain Kettle chips she had rolling around in there and say nothing more about...

I would anything for stats but I won’t do that!

In blogging it's about knowing who YOU are. Knowing what YOUR limits are. Knowing what you're happy to do or not do to grow your blog. To flog your blog, to be a bit crass about it. For me I exploit the tales of my Hubby and my family and friends for personal gain....

Cute Floral {She Wore What}

Cute Floral {She Wore What}

Leading into spring there is plenty of colour out there. From pastels to neons and everything in between. For years I've been in black, a side effect of a mostly corporate, country town wardrobe. But bit by bit I've added loads and loads of colour. I just can't help...

A ramblings one just showed up.

A ramblings one just showed up.

I don't know if it was the LemSip MAX {not sponsored} or the copious amount of time spent napping in the past day or two, but all of a sudden I had some random ramblings and I thought I might share them. They're not overly thoughtful nor meaningful, but they're here....

Remembering Why.

Sometimes I like to take a moment and remember why I blog. For what reason. To what end. Why? I ponder the opportunities that have been presented to me. The brand events, the conferences, the lunches. The friends, the amazing jaw dropping stuff, the trolls. Every now...

Sort Of Committed.

{Weight Watchers provided me with 6 months membership to their Unlimited program for editorial consideration as per my disclosure policy} When I started Weight Watchers a month ago I was determined that this would be IT. I would once and for all make a move towards...

Aussie Curves: Red {She Wore What}

Are you REDeeeeeey for this? Sorry. Couldn't help myself. It just slipped out. So moving on, right?   This week that Aussie Curves challenge was to get our red on. No problem I thought. I'll just pair my red heels with some black and a red lip and be done with...

When boredom meets Sunday you get this. Apparently.

Today I got bored. So I straightened my hair.  And you know this guy, well he was next {note the combed through heat protect} He was a good sport. And we laughed. A lot! And then I did my make up for some outfit photos. Zipped up my new boots in a swift costume...

ECCO World’s Longest Runway AND ME!?

Early last week I received an email asking if I could fill in for someone who could no longer attend the ECCO shoes World's Longest Catwalk event. Sure, I said. No problem. They were willing to fly me down and back, give me shoes and lunch. What's not to love, right?...

This is how we do it.

This is how we do it.

Often I'm asked how I maintain the post schedule that I do. Maintain the commenting, the interacting and the replies to emails and comments. All the stuff that makes a blog interactive and growing. The answer freaks most people out. Seriously, this is not a small job....
