Fashion vs comfort

Brought to you by Ziera

Meagan Kerr wears Harlow Dreammaker Sweater Dress and Ziera Ocean Shoes

For a long time I thought that I had to pick between fashion and comfort. I chose fashion for a long time and squeezed my feet into shoes that were beautiful but bloody uncomfortable (like that cherry red pair of high heeled Mary Janes I had when I was 18 – swoon!). Continue reading

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016

Some things haven’t much changed since I was a child – I still can’t make a good cup of tea, breakfast in bed is always appreciated and my mum is still one of my best friends. That might sound cheesy but it’s totally true – even more so now that we live in different countries. We talk often, she’s my sounding board (and voice of reason), and she’s always supported my crazy ideas (like leaving a perfectly good job to become a blogger). She’s coming over to visit me for my birthday next week, and my birthday just happens to be on Mother’s Day – clearly a sign that I’m her greatest gift, right? Continue reading

Autumn beauty tips

Meagan Kerr's autumn beauty tips

Skin and hair restored after a bit of TLC

I spent my summer making the most of the amazing weather – I’ve been swimming, I’ve been out in the sun, I’ve worn shorts and jandals almost every day … and as a result I’m in need of a little bit of head to toe TLC. Over summer I tend to lean towards a really basic beauty routine but autumn is the time that I replenish my skin and my hair after a lot of sea, sun and sand. Continue reading

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears PA Plus Jersey Raglan Sweater and Grey Marle Leggings by Peter Alexander Plus

I’ve been looking longingly at Peter Alexander’s pyjamas for quite some time now, wishing they did plus sizes. I know I’m not alone, a few of you have messaged me saying the same thing! I’m sure you’ll be as excited as I am to hear about the launch of Peter Alexander Plus! Yup, that’s right – probably the most popular name when it comes to PJs has ventured in to plus and I think that’s worth celebrating. Continue reading

Plus size activewear picks

Plus size activewear // New Zealand blogger Meagan Kerr wears Active Intent crop top with State of Mind cropped trousers and wrap top

There seems to be a lot of assumption that plus size women aren’t or don’t want to be active. At least, that’s what you’d think given that finding really great plus size activewear has in the past been very difficult. That’s not the case anymore, there are some brands doing great things and I wanted to share a few of my fave picks of what is around at the moment. Continue reading

Autumn style picks

Autumn Style Picks

As I’m sure you all know by know, autumn is my favourite season for fashion – lots of layering, a darkening colour palette, snuggly knits and any excuse for getting cosy with a big scarf. I’m loving denim, merino, checks, stripes… here are a few of my style picks for autumn. Continue reading

Review: Dafni Hair Straightening Brush

Dafni Hair Straightening Brush - is it worth the hype?

I really love the sleek smooth feelingĀ of my hair when it’s straightened, but it always takes me so long to do that I don’t do it very often. Last month, the team at Farmers asked if I wanted to try out the Dafni Hair Straightening Brush – I’d heard so much about it that of course I said yes! Continue reading

Roadtrip Tips

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears 17 Sundays Burnt Out Spot Tee and Warpaint Boyfriend Joggers with Basics Brand Men's Plain Zip-Thru Sweatshirt from The Warehouse

You all know how much I love a good roadtrip, right? One of the things I want to do this year is see more of my own country, so roadies are a must. The drive down to Rotorua is one of my favourites because the scenery is so beautiful – especially driving through the Kaimai-Mamaku Forest Park. And at the end of the drive is one of my favourite spots of all, The Redwoods in Whakarewarewa Forest. Continue reading

Plus Size Pinup: Fran Robertson

Miss Pinup New Zealand 2016 Finalist Fran Robertson

Meet Fran. She makes costumes and hairpieces (specialising in the weird and wonderful) and works as a wardrobe stylist as well as doing hair and makeup. She dabbles in portrait photography, is an all round awesome babe and to top it all off she is a Miss Pinup New Zealand 2016 finalist. I was excited to be able to catch up with her to ask a few questions about her style, being body positive and being a plus size woman in the Miss Pinup New Zealand 2016 finals. Continue reading

My autumn essentials

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Wild Child City Ponte Pants, Yourself Luxe Merino Top and Alexia Check Shirt

As the weather cools down I’m starting to get really excited about my wardrobe for autumn and winter. I love layering and wearing warm snuggly clothes, so this really is my favourite time of year. I’m not one of those people who has “a summer wardrobe” and “a winter wardrobe” though – I try to have things in my wardrobe that I can wear all year round, and this is when a few staples are important to help carry me through from hot weather to chilly temps.
