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...

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...

Googles 'what are bats a sign of' - Suger Coat It

Googles ‘what are bats a sign of?’

I'm starting to think I jinxed us all when I put up my 'today has been cancelled go back to bed sign'... Sorry about that. The wheels have fallen off, and it's one time too many for people out there. I wanted to acknowledge that before we got into it today. Without any...

Ways to make your blog reader friendly - Suger Coat It

Five things that make your blog reader friendly

I read somewhere on Facebook this week that list posts are passé. Done. Over. It turns out that I didn't get the memo because I LOVE to write the darn things. List posts help me corral my thoughts and line them up in neat little rows for you all, which is virtually...

plus size coat

Investment Plus Size Coats for all the stylish winters

Buying a plus size coat isn’t something I do every year. But, when it comes to my wardrobe, an investment plus size coat is my go-to. I want something I can wear year after year, and I recommend that to you too. So, when you’re looking for a winter coat, take your time,...

plus size jacket

Where to Buy a Plus Size Jacket Under $150

I started the hunt for a plus-size jacket because Vanessa, who reads this blog, asked if I'd spotted anything on my travels. And I had, but none that suited her needs or that she hadn't already seen and put aside. So, on Facebook, I reached out to you guys, and you came...

I say no to pajama-rama

I picked up the Marie Claire 200th issue in my local cafe the other morning. Talk about late to the party. That's me. I flicked through the pages and I found myself going, yes, no, yes, yes, no. Not about the stories or the models as I would have in the past, but...

A Bit of a Jerk

Relationships are difficult sometimes. There is a push and a shove that comes from that necessary compromise type situation. In our house we talk over big purchases, we include the other in happening of the day, we don't call the other at work unless it is absolutely...

Aussie Curves: Leggings {She Wore What}

Aussie Curves: Leggings {She Wore What}

Leggings. I never wear them. Don't own any. Horrible horrific things you'd never catch me dead in... Oh, wait. Whoops. I wear them almost daily in winter and under any skirt that's a wee bit too short. Love, love them. But rather than my usual cardigan, dress,...

The Colourful Strangers

As the sounds in this cafe build into a dull roar I wonder about all the people in it. I wonder about a lot of things. This you guys know. I wonder about their stories, their successes, their losses. The noise begins to quiet. I see a guy in orange pants, a purple...

The Social Media Jugular.

It's pretty darn easy to lodge a complaint with a company these days. It might even be a bit biased or in the heat of the moment. A complaint that in the old days, once you sat down and wrote a letter about it you realised that you weren't that upset about it or what...

Grandpa Loafer Casual {She Wore What}

Grandpa Loafer Casual {She Wore What}

I've never really done casual dressing very well. My Dad always said it's better to be overdressed than underdressed and I think somewhere in my brain this took hold and ear wormed me. Sometimes it's about old notions about plus-size women and I just don't like to...

Oh no she didn’t…

Oh no she didn’t…

It's that time again. The time we talk about the assumptions people make when you have a particular sort of body. Now me, my body is fat and a wee bit muscley as well. I'm almost 6ft tall, and you guys know that I am moving on. Scene set as they say.   One morning I...

If I see another eCard I will SCREAM!

Well, you know. Unless the eCard is really really funny. Or talks to me a little. Or makes me feel like smiling on a tough day. Or wetting myself laughing when I'm already feeling good. Other than that, I'll scream. Probably.   Found on www.someecards.com.au - be...

Bribery makes the world go around.

In our house there's a sort of barter system going. Mostly. I unpack the dishwasher. he packs it. I cook dinner, he takes out the garbage. I dirty the clothes, he washes them. You know, the usual give and take that is relationships. It's normally a tit for tat type...

Lime Tee and Jeans {She Wore What}

Lime Tee and Jeans {She Wore What}

  Now jeans and I don't always get along. I have short legs and a long torso so I always feel like jeans are riding too low or they cut into my lower hips or something along that line. Or worse, I have to pull them up so far that they, errr, ride up in the...
