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...

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...

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...

Yes, you can wear comfy clothes and be stylish - suger coat it

Are basics only stylish on thin women?

As I scrolled through the street style pictures from Australian Fashion Week and it got me thinking. And no, it wasn’t the lack of plus-size representation. I’ve talked about that before. Every damn year, I’m tired of waiting for this type of inclusion to catch up. What got me thinking was the actual street style fashion and how casual and laidback it was. Planned and executed, obviously, but think ill-fitting/oversized suits, denim and sneakers, flats and basic tees.

Classic Red Wine Sangria

We're throwing things way back here with a Classic Red Wine Sangria from the #sugerDRINKS eBook.  Yes, from 2017 and still available as a free download when you sign up for the Suger News. I received an email this week from a recent subscriber who was excited to get making some cocktails (same, what a week). And it reminded me, I haven't done an update in a while. A long while.

Warm Up in a Knit Dress this Winter {she wore what}

You know the weather is getting chilly around here when I start wearing my knit dresses. As someone who hates feeling trapped in overly warm places, clothes or situations, I'll only wear a knit dress when I KNOW it will be cold. And that I'll definitely, without a doubt, need the warmth. It's a whole thing. But I love this brief moment that my hometown turns on the winter, and we get to pretend all those winter clothes are actually useful to own.

23 cosy plus-size jumpers for winter - Suger Coat It

23 Plus-Size Jumpers to Cosy Up in this Winter

The most clicks in the AW2021 trends report were to some beautiful jewel-coloured plus-size jumpers. Heading into the cooler months here, chunky, soft, cosy jumpers are in high demand; I get it. Defined as a knitted garment typically with long sleeves, worn over the upper body; jumper. You know the ones. With that in mind, I went looking a little further afield and found some GOLD.

Plus Size Longline Cardigan Casual Birkenstock Outfit - Suger Coat It

You need a long cardigan in your wardrobe {she wore what}

Heading out into the world this week was interesting. It was cool enough for a coat, locally, but still warm enough that you could wear slides. Or, at least, I could. I know, don’t come for me, I’m warm-blooded, what can I say? I ran around doing a few errands, picking up groceries and reminding myself why I hate spending too much time at the shops. We spotted these doors, and despite a large amount of flora growing around it, I decided it was a perfect spot to grab some photos. Perfect may be a stretch, but we got them anyway – victory!

Plus Size Jacket Boots Dress Outfit - Suger Coat It

For the love of Docs {she wore what}

I mentioned on Instagram that I was breaking in some new Docs and didn't know if I could take it. This old girl is so far past wearing anything that makes her uncomfortable; heck, most days I refuse to wear a bra. And those who know know breaking in a new pair of Dr Martens is some next level feet (ankle, heel) pain you can endure. Read the comments on the Instagram post; it's not a "me thing". But the other thing we know is that once you wear them in, once the leather gives and you're through the worst, Docs are soft and wonderful, and you can live your life in them. So, you suffer. And you do it happily for the love of the Docs.

Why I’m all about living more and working less

Why I’m all about living more and working less

When I say that I’m all about working less and living more, what does that mean to you? Books such as the 4-hour workweek springs to mind or every single clickbait online ad for making money while you sleep. There is a multitude of different things that could be coming to mind for you. But for me, it’s about buying back my time. For what, you might ask? For freedom, thanks. 

Why not have a self-care weekend?

Why not have a self-care weekend?

My plan to overcome the overwhelming cloud of tiredness we are all under is to encourage you to join me in a self-care weekend. That’s your challenge, should you choose to accept it. Now, let’s talk about that. 

How to save time on the things you do every day

How to save time on the things you do every day

Suppose you’re like me; your day-to-day life can be a little repetitive. Sure, we have learned long ago to expect the unexpected but for the most part, Monday to Friday, particularly, look similar day after day and week after week. With that in mind, I want to save you time on the things you do every day.

Goal Setting 101: planning and setting goals that work

Goal Setting 101: planning and setting goals that work

I wanted to talk about goal setting and planning your life. But I didn’t want to be one of those people pushing the whole new year/new you bullshit. You should know that from the start. But I’m all about creating my life, and I want that for you guys too. No matter the time of year or your experience of where you are right now it’s a perfect time to set some personal goals for yourself, your life and go for it. 

Stop comparing yourself to others; find your happy

Stop comparing yourself to others; find your happy

What if I told you there is a secret to being happy? Even better, it’s something you can start doing today, won’t cost you a cent, and with some practice, will become second nature. Great! Get those switches in your head ready to be flicked because it’s as simple (and as difficult) as not comparing yourself with other people. Which, as an adult type being, will be something you’ve heard before. It might even be disappointing to hear.
