How to tie a scarf

This is Meagan Kerr #nzstylecurvettes Loop Scarf

I don’t wear a lot of accessories – I like to keep things simple and most of the time I just wear stud earrings and a watch. When it’s a bit chilly or I want to add a pop of colour to my outfit, I go for scarves. My go to is one of the many infinity loop scarves I have (my favourite at the moment is this orange one from Farmers) – it’s so easy to throw on and go, as well as being super soft. However, I do have quite a few flat scarves, so I thought I’d share three different ways to tie a scarf. Continue reading

Missy aka Miss Melicious is the Queen of cupcakes. I was introduced to her delicious iced confections in 2010, when my boyfriend presented me with a whole box of Cherry Cola Cupcakes on our first date. He sure knows how to woo a girl!

A few people have been asking about how I get my skin to look so good, so I thought I’d give you a rundown on the skincare routine I’ve been using this winter. It changed my skin from dry and flaky to smooth and hydrated – my skin has never looked this good! All of these products are cruelty free, and most of them are made in New Zealand – hurray!

NZ Style Curvettes

For a long time, plus size fashion in New Zealand left a lot to be desired, but now that both local and overseas plus size clothing options are improving, we are somewhat spoilt for choice. As Kiwi women, we tend to play things safe when it comes to fashion – especially plus size women – so to encourage my fellow Kiwi babes to explore their personal style, I have created the NZ Style Curvettes outfit challenge.

Spin The Pin: Not Dressed As Lamb

Spin The Pin: This is Meagan Kerr's take on Not Dressed As Lamb's outfit

I love getting outfit inspiration from other people’s outfit choices – it’s what makes people watching, blog reading and Pinterest pinning so great. I’m a bit of a newbie when it comes to Pinterest (come and follow me here), but my blogging friend Jo from iCurvy has made a cool challenge to get us all inspired. Continue reading

First Look: Chocolat SS16

First Look: Chocolat NZ Plus Size Fashion SS16

Last week I popped over to High Society’s Auckland headquarters to meet the team (including amazing designer and fellow Gisborne gal Sheryl May) and check out the new season looks for Chocolat, their plus size range. You might have seen me wearing Chocolat before, but I think that this season’s collection “High Spirits” is better than ever so I thought I’d give you a wee peek at some of my favourites. These would definitely be investment pieces for me because they’re great quality high fashion pieces, and I know I’d get a lot of wear out of them. Continue reading

My secret to flawless foundation

This is Meagan Kerr's secret to flawless skin: e.l.f. cosmetics Flawless Finish Foundation in Buff and e.l.f. cosmetics Stipple Brush

All my adult life, I’ve wondered how the heck women get that gorgeous smooth look to their skin when they apply makeup. You know, the kind that looks like you’ve had your makeup done by a team of professionals. I’ve tried countless foundations (easily more than 50) in an attempt to find the holy grail that would give me this magical angel skin. I’ve applied it with brushes, used a sponge, tried my fingertips, and do you think I could master it? No freaking chance! Until now – now I have mastered the secret to flawless foundation!

11 Body Positive Instagram Accounts You Should Follow

With Instagram making the hashtag #curvy unsearchable last week, and Oprah Magazine’s recent advice that you should only wear a crop top if you have a flat stomach (spoiler alert: that’s a complete load of bullshit), I think we need a bit of a body positive shake up! So here are some of my favourite body positive Instagram accounts – check them out and let me know if there are any others you’d recommend. Let’s get this body positive party started!

That fateful coat

This is Meagan Kerr wears Autograph Melton Coat in charcoal grey

I wasn’t even looking for a coat. I nipped in to Autograph in Sylvia Park to have a quick look for a jumper while we were waiting to go and see Minions, and I spied it on the rack as I entered the store. I tried it on in slate blue and fell in lust with it’s warm cosy embrace. But slate blue isn’t practical with my wardrobe, and neither is hot pink, and the charcoal grey wasn’t there in my size. So I put the coat back and walked over to look at sweaters. But then I found myself back at the rack with the coats. Continue reading

Cruelty Free Deodorant

Cruelty Free Deodorant

When I started my cruelty free journey, one of the things I really struggled with was deodorant. I used Nivea roll on deodorant for a long time, and really liked the way it performed but hated the fact that Nivea is not cruelty free so I began my search for a suitable replacement. I’ve tried powders, sprays, pastes and roll ons; the good, the bad and the ugly. I’ve finally found two deodorants that I really like, so I thought a post about cruelty free deodorant might be helpful. Continue reading
