Sporty T-Shirt Dress Goodness

Sporty T-Shirt Dress Goodness

I was cleaning up some of the old outfit posts on the blog; there was an issue with images disappearing from a lot of them. Do you know what I noticed as I went through post after post? Firstly, I miss having this record of not only what I was wearing or looked like, but what we were up to. And secondly, that my style has changed a lot in the...

Why I switched from MailChimp to FloDesk

Why I switched from MailChimp to FloDesk

Recently, I closed my MailChimp account. An account I had since 2011! 2011, team, do you remember the good old days? And if you receive the Suger News, you would know I switched to a new kid on the block, FloDesk. I'm going to talk a little more about it later, but first I wanted to let you know why I went looking for a replacement in the first...

Kelvin vs. The Apocalypse (Part One, I’m sure)

Kelvin vs. The Apocalypse (Part One, I’m sure)

I've been doing my best not to leave the house since we came home from the beach at the end of March. Because Kevin is still attempting to run his business, he has been in charge of supply missions. He has been to the supermarket and bottle shop (when will the wine I ordered online show up!?) with covers off on the essentials for us. But today, I...

Creating Mental Space in COVID-19 Chaos

Creating Mental Space in COVID-19 Chaos

I mean, this post was bound to happen. As soon as we returned home from the beach, we went into self-isolation. We followed the rules and did what we needed to do. We still had some work on, but ultimately we found that in the changing world we live in that we had a little more free time on our hands. Which, if you know either Kelvin or I is a...

The power of women

The power of women

I've had some time on my hands; you might have noticed. First I thought maybe I'd tackle some of the hundreds of classes I had saved on SkillShare. But focus is a fickle friend, so that didn't work out. Instead, I turned to my list of documentaries about talented, powerful women; Gaga, Amy, Anna, Brené, Joan, Franca, and the list goes on and on....

How I’m wearing this printed wedge dress

How I’m wearing this printed wedge dress

We were talking about the whole wearing a dress as a top thing on Facebook this week. The blog post I wrote a while ago had made a comeback and it got me thinking; there has to be more I can do with the clothes in my wardrobe now. So, the first chance I got, in the rain and one billion percent humidity I grabbed Kel and went outside with the...

The problem with working from home

The problem with working from home

The problem with working from home is that my office is literally five steps from my backdoor. When everything I want is within a few steps of my desk, it becomes pretty easy to just get set up and stay there. Or if I want a change of scenery, move to the couch with the laptop. It's hardly the ideal way to get in any incidental exercise. Without...

Best of the Blog: 2019 edition

It's about that time, team! Another year has come to an end (this one went FAST). And since I still consider myself something of a blogger, it's wrap-up time. I decided that we should do the best of the blog. Take a walk down memory lane and all that. Which as you'll see is more of a best of what I got done sort of thing. Some months I literally...

What if you don’t know what you want?

What if you don’t know what you want?

He asked me to catch up in a cafe. I'd been working for his family for years at this point, and he wanted to know more. More about me and my life. Where did I see myself in five years? What was it that I wanted for myself and my life? I know now that what he wanted was a way for them to help me get there. To see me achieve my dreams and goals,...
