create your life with style + confidence.
Think of me as your straight-talking interwebs BFF.
I’m Melissa Walker Horn, but around here they call me Suger. Who am I? I’m a photographer and owner of a Digital Marketing Agency. Married, no kids, but lots of family close by to keep me busy. I’ve got a thing for wine and cheese, but there’s no way you’ll ever catch me eating honey carrots or apricot chicken. I love sneakers and stripes, and I hate fussy, overly styled outfits and clothing.
And do you know what? I’ve had many jobs, studied most things, and I’m not so great at the whole sticking with one career thing. Better luck next life, right? What I’ve always done is work for myself and run a blog. My story is one of self-awareness and confidence, a gift I wish I could offer every woman and girl out there. When it comes to this blog, that’s all I hope to deliver – to you, to your friend, daughter or a lady that you met on the street. And as far as I’m concerned, you have to keep showing up for people.
Suger Coat It, the blog and all the attached socials, is a place where you can be inspired to create a life you love. Not sure what that looks like for you, right now? No problem. Stick with us, and you’ll decide what you want from life and be on the road to getting it sooner than you think. I believe in living well, putting yourself first and doing something that lights you up every day.
That’s about it! Great to meet you. Welcome to Suger Coat It.

We all know that we should measure ourselves before online shopping. But it's a pain in the butt. But like a bandaid, rip it off quickly and get it over with. This is my basic guide to how to measure yourself for online shopping. After all, I'm pretty into online...
How do you like your denim? When it comes to plus-sizes I have found it can be hit and miss; some are great, there are quality offerings and then there are the ones that aren't even denim at all. I like jeans and I wear them sometimes, weather permitting, but what I...
I'm your girl when it comes to plus size swimwear. Why is that? I'm a water baby, and living in the water requires that you have something to wear. As body confident as I am, nude beaches will never be my thing. So off I go in search of swimwear that fits, works for...
Have you ever looked at someone and thought, I wish I had that kind of confidence? Have you ever felt like everyone has confidence figured out but you? Well, team, what would you say if I said confidence looks different on everybody? And not just the body confidence...
I'm not sure I know anyone who is against outfit repeating IRL; it seems like an influencer problem to me. That's what I said to Ms Katy on her post about normalising outfit repeating. It sounds a little blunt, but you know what I mean. No one cares if you repeat an...
A lot of traffic coming to the blog right now is for a post about where to buy plus-size clothes for teenagers. Teenage girls, predominately, with a couple of stores thrown in that would work for the guys too. The search terms got me thinking about my teenage self and...

I’m Melissa Walker Horn, around here they call me Suger. I'm a photographer and business owner; a sneaker-wearing, wine-drinking o.g. blogger. I love a casual ootd, my family + the beach. I’ve got a thing for cheese, but there’s no way you’ll ever catch me eating apricot chicken. I'm here for the casual ootd and stripes, and I hate fussy, overly styled clothing and ruffles.
