An anchor for the soul

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Hope and Harvest Nauticas Dress and Taylor Swift for Keds Anchor Stripe Sneakers

There is an anchor that ties me to the ocean. I grew up in seaside towns and always gravitate back to the sea when I need to revive my soul. In Auckland we are lucky to have a lot of beaches and some great waterfront areas, which makes it easy to recharge. Today I went along to one of my favourite spots in Auckland, which has a great view of the city, to enjoy the peace of the harbour and grab a couple of photos of my nautical inspired outfit.

How to be body confident in the bedroom

Meagan Kerr wears Autograph Plus Size Lingerie // How to be body confident in the bedroom

I get a lot of people asking me about having sex as a fat girl and how to be body confident in the bedroom, so I thought it was about time we sat down and had “the talk”. So let’s talk about sex, baby!

Whether you’re getting in to bed with a new partner and feeling a bit shy, wanting to be a bit more adventurous, coming to terms with your body changing, or just feeling a bit self conscious about bits that jiggle, it’s okay. I get it. Learning to love your body is one thing, but getting naked with another person (or more than one person) is a whole other deal altogether, right? Not to worry babe, I’ve got your back!

Boxing Day Sale Lush Haul

Lush Haul January 2016

You all know how much of a Lush fan I am, right? Well if you didn’t already, you’re about to. I did a spot of shopping (just a little bit, honest!) at their Boxing Day Sale plus I got some Lush goodies for Christmas, so I thought I’d show you my Lush haul with my first video for 2016 – a good way to start the year, don’t you think?

Slouchy summer

Meagan Kerr wears Yours Maxi Dress and 17 Sundays Slouch Kimono

I’ve got a confession to make. I’ve worn this maxi dress so much this summer that I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve worn it. I’ve worn it over my bathing suit, out to BBQs, mooching about the house… it’s been my go to dress because it’s soft, comfortable and it doesn’t wrinkle. Continue reading

Where to buy plus size lingerie

Where to buy plus size lingerie

One thing I always get asked about is plus size lingerie. I’m not just talking about granny pants and t-shirt bras, I’m also talking about sexy lingerie. I like to wear lingerie that makes me feel great – whether it’s under my work clothes or getting dressed up for a hot date, not because I’m dressing for someone else but because I’m dressing to make myself feel like a sassy, confident goddess.

Review: Zhenzi Shapewear

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Zhenzi Shapewear Slip from Navabi

Sometimes when I’m wearing a figure hugging dress, I want to be able to smooth out my silhouette a bit so you can’t see my underwear or bra line. My usual reaction to shapewear is “nope, GTFO”, because it’s not necessary and I’m not gonna be uncomfortable just so you can’t see a bit of chub, but I spied this slip from Danish brand Zhenzi on the Navabi website and I’ve never tried shapewear in a slip form so I figured it was worth trying out. Think of me as your fashion guinea pig. Continue reading

How to be body confident at the beach

This is Meagan Kerr in plus size swimwear by elomi and Autograph // How to be body confident at the beach

My first ever experience with body shaming was when I was wearing a swimsuit, so it probably comes as no surprise that I spent a lot of time agonising over wearing one as a teenager and in my 20’s. I remember going to the beach in board shorts and a baggy t-shirt, with my one piece underneath, feeling very self-concious – a far cry from the cocky, confident person I was on the swim team a couple of years beforehand. Things have changed a lot over the last few years, and now I feel completely at home in a bikini. I get a lot of people saying that they wish they felt so confident in a swimsuit, so I thought I’d share a few of my tips on how to be body confident at the beach (or where ever it is that you’re swimming!).
