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...

Five things that make your blog reader friendly

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...

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.

Where to buy plus size pyjamas and sleepwear

We’re bringing this where to buy post to you today by request! In the past year or two, we have certainly learned to love our loungewear, and a big part of that is sleepwear. When I first received the request, I was like, errr, this will be a short ass list. But, the more I looked into it, the more I found some great options from big and small plus-size retailers.

The Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch vs. Standard iPad with Apple Pencil

You want it, sure, but do you need it? Are you looking to purchase a new iPad and comparing the iPad Pro to other versions of the iPad? I was too. At the time, I was looking to replace my 2009 Macbook Pro for on-the-go type adventures. I wanted a light, easy to manage and packed with features alternative, and the iPad was where I set my sights including the Apple Pencil.

Skillshare Courses for your blog, brand or business

Skillshare Courses for your blog, brand or business

Skillshare, I love it. What can I say? I could happily spend the day with Skillshare courses playing in the background of whatever I’m doing. And as someone who couldn’t say no to whatever new online course was being offered by the influencer of the moment, this is a win for me. And a money-saver too, but we can talk about that towards the end because I have a referral link, obviously. Haha. But let’s talk about today’s post and why most of you are actually here, shall we?

Size does matter in Australian Plus-Size Fashion

Size does matter in Australian Plus-Size Fashion

This week we saw another brand launch into the Australian plus-size fashion market. Fronted by one of the biggest names in plus, American model Ashley Graham, with the locals following loyally behind. The Commonry burst onto the scene with the sort of ripples a well-bought marketing strategy can buy. It’s reminiscent of other brands who have attempted similar in years gone by. Brands, which for the most part, don’t sell plus here anymore. I’ll let you put two and two together.
