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 Outfits for Summer - Suger Coat It

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 - Suger Coat 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...

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...

Suger Review – August

Suger Review – August

Here we are again Suger's with another monthly review post. This time though I have two Herbal Essences prize packs for YOU to win. Yay! As always, I was sent most of these products for editorial consideration. This is not a sponsored post, products are marked with...

The colours one.

I looked around me and despite it being Winter spring colours are alive and well in my home town. People have well and truly relished the influx of neons and brights and pastels. As I look around it makes me smile. I feel part of it in my stripe skirt with hot pink...

Weekender Edition: I want to live here!

It's been a while since we had an I Want To Live Here house post. What can I say, I just don't see as many unique houses anymore. Though I do have one coming up with a pretty impressive view and a bit of cute about it. Then last, last weekend when we were touring...

The one where I forget to write a post until now…

Today has been a pretty fun day. I look forward to Mondays and the community of the Aussie Curves ladies. Made even better by how you guys have really rallied behind it and supported it. Then I go to my Weight Watchers meeting and come home ready and raring to go for...

Aussie Curves: Bright Nails {She Wore What}

Aussie Curves: Bright Nails {She Wore What}

It turns out that bright nails are my thing these days. Lots of colours and changed often. So this week's Aussie Curves challenge was right up my ally. But how to decide between my current favs, Revlon Sweet Tart and Rimmel's Lively Lavender. I decided not to. I...
