Amber was the first person that I photographed for my Fat Girls Shouldn’t Wear Stripes project, so I was super excited to meet up with her a couple of weeks ago to photograph her again. I love her fun, playful style of dress – I mean, pies? That’s awesome. Continue reading
This summer has been all about baring my midriff, because it’s been so hot and humid. As we move into the cooler weather, I’m ditching the shorts and cropped tanks, and pairing a ¾ sleeved crop top with a high waisted midi skirt. Continue reading
On the 19th of March 2015, HELP is holding their annual Colour Me Purple charity auction to raise money to help fund their crucial work within our community. Emceed by actor Aaron Ward, the evening’s entertainment will include performances by Kiwi icons as well as both a live and silent auction. Outstanding locally-made art is on offer, as well as amazing experiences, including a walk-on part with local heartthrob and sexual violence prevention educator Sam Bunkle on Shortland Street, a weekend away experiencing Waikato’s Waitomo caves and Hobbiton, and three nights at the Gold Coast in the Sheraton Mirage Resort with flights included. HELP aims to raise $50,000 to help them bridge the funding shortfall they face in delivering their services.
Tickets to Colour Me Purple are limited (but don’t worry, I’ll let you know how you can get yours in just a moment!), and guests are encouraged to wear their best purple attire – so I’ve put together a few of my favourite purple finds to help you look fabulous!
Gosh, the year has passed so quickly! It’s almost time for The Very Vintage Day Out 2015, and I’m very excited to be heading along with a group of friends. I hope you’ll join us! If you’ve never been before, check out my posts about VVDO 2013 and VVDO 2014.
As well as talking about style and body love, I really want to celebrate awesome things that fat babes do. Just because you’re plus size it doesn’t mean that you can’t be talented, successful, intelligent, athletic … or just plain kickass. So here is a new feature on This is Meagan Kerr – Fat Babes Doing Stuff. Women (and occasionally men) doing awesome things.
Meet Hannah Gough aka Miss Glamour LaRue. Model, early childhood educator, Miss Pinup New Zealand 2015 finalist, derby girl and fat babe. In the world of roller derby, she skates for Northland Nightmares Hells Wives and is known as Glamerzon. She laced up her skates and answered a few questions for me. Continue reading
I was super excited when beauty blogger Lena agreed to be part of this project, because I really like her style. We first met through various blogging groups that we’re both involved in, and I started reading her blog Lena Talks Beauty. One of the main reasons I like Lena Talks Beauty is that she doesn’t just show you swatches of a product, she shows you what it looks like on, which gives you a better idea of what the texture is like, how it goes on and how it wears. All things I want to know before I buy a product!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll know that last night was date night. We didn’t really celebrate on Valentine’s Day because we were both working, so we decided that dinner and a movie was in order this week. Continue reading
I’ve been really fortunate to have had relatively good skin for most of my life, especially since I started using products that were designed for my skin type (currently dry to normal, occasionally a little sensitive), but occasionally I get breakouts. I get hormonal breakouts, I get pimples when I take certain medications or am stressed, and I sometimes get them as a reaction to a makeup or skincare product I’ve used. Over the last two months, I’ve had breakouts as a result of ALL of these reasons – not cool! Continue reading
Self love is about having a regard for your own happiness and well-being. Practising self love can be difficult, especially when you’re just starting out and trying to make changes in the way you think about yourself, or in the way you’ve been taught to regard yourself. It’s not about being full of yourself or self-absorbed, it’s about getting in touch with yourself, your body and what it needs, your own happiness and taking care of you.

There’s nothing quite like summer in New Zealand. Scorching hot days (preferably spent at the beach), lots of swimming, time spent with friends and family – and the many many BBQs that summer inevitably brings!
