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 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...

Online Shopping Discounts… Umm, yes please!

Soooo, these days I get a lot of emails. Like, a lot a lot of emails. When I received one from Coupon Codes regarding their new website, I did what I always do first. I check out their website to see if it will fit with my blog before moving forward. One click and I...

Hannah ::: Friends of Suger – Your Style

I found Hannah on Instagram. I'm glad I did because her outfit photos make me smile, make my closet sing and my work mirror excited because it's outfit photo time. Hannah has a blog named A Girl with Some Clothes and it appears, thanks to the new fangled Blogspot...

Tupperaddict

Not thaaaat many people know that I was once a Tupperware sales lady. Officially titled a demonstrator. And a pretty crap one if I do say so myself. But I had one thing going for me. A love of the product. A love of amassing giant piles of the product, actually. I...

Show off on the inside… Maybe the outside too.

Years ago I owned a red convertible. A little red sports car that I loved to drive with the top off {THE top, not MY top} and feel the wind in my hair. My then blonde hair that is. It was impossible not to stare for some. With a loud exhaust and even louder Garbage...

Life According to Friends.

Hubby surprised me with the complete box set of Friends episodes for my birthday. I've already watched almost 6 full seasons. In the background mostly. I realised the other day that they are more complex then they appear on the surface. So complex that there is a...

Self-Esteem or Self Destruct?

How would you rate your self esteem? LOW, MEDIUM or HIGH. She asked.  HIGH! I answered, bordering on up myself actually.  I answered, only a little bit tongue in cheek.  It's self-esteem week over at Seven Cherubs, and Naomi is talking a lot about how to maintain your...

Top What!? Part 2 – The Pictures One

  More on the actual stuff that happened coming soon. Did you see Part 1 about my hair? Well that part, the one about my hair, it's here. Probably. Part 3? Who knows though. But don't you think that the memories of fun...

Keep It Simple

Sometimes you have to step back to see things clearly. Sometimes it takes a step forwards. Sometimes life gets full and busy and complicated.  But you shouldn't forget what's important.  Sometimes all you need to do is let you hair down and party like an 18 year old. ...

Top What!? Part 1.

There are some emails a blogger of random things doesn't expect to get, and the hey you're in the Top 50 Kidspot Bloggers, is one of them. I was a wee bit excited to hear about the panel of judges and the word on the street was the prizes were AMAZING. Flash forward...

Everybody in Big Salad

Take every vegetable and salad type ingredient, some couscous, olives oil, some herbs, salt and pepper and there you go. Mix them all together and serve on a plate. The bigger the better. The leftovers make excellent snacks and late lunches. Also great with cheese,...
