Print princess

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Kate Madison black and white print pants from The Warehouse, Yourself merino top from Farmers, Black Dahlia duster from Empress Eleven, Dotty scarf from K&K, Ezibuy gloves

Monochrome prints will always be my favourite – now that my wardrobe has returned to a darker palette, I find that basic black and white prints go with all of my basics, as well as any coloured accessories I might be rocking. If you’re new to the world of prints and patterns then black and white is a great place to start. Continue reading

Amongst the flowers

Auckland Winter Garden

One of my favourite places to visit is the Auckland Winter Gardens – it’s always beautiful in there (and warm inside the glasshouses) and there are ever changing displays to enjoy as you stroll around the gardens. It’s the perfect spot to visit when the weather is a bit average but you want to get out and takeĀ  walk, because most of it is undercover. Continue reading

How to nail that job interview

Job interview // New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Wild Child Urban Stripe Bodice Tea Dress from Farmers, New Look Trenchcoat from ASOS, Donatella's Tights and Black Croc Ocean Shoes from Ziera

I’ve worked in a number of different jobs in my life, including being a dishwasher in a pub; working as an administrator in many fields including real estate, healthcare and in start-up companies; a teaching assistant in a high school (english, drama and dance) and for med students (gynae); and a photographer. I’ve also been a manager, and been on both sides of the table when it comes to the often-dreaded job interview, and there are a few tips that I’ve picked up along the way. Continue reading

Taking Stock

It was my birthday on Sunday (I turned 32), and every year around my birthday I like to reflect on how things are going, where I’m at in my life and where I want to be. What better time to share what’s going on in my life at the moment? If you want to know more about one of my answers, leave a comment below and I’ll happily answer any questions! Continue reading

Ditch the doubt

Meagan Kerr for Special K - Ditch the doubt and #ownit

CW: Weight loss, eating disorder, body shaming, body image

When my photo was shared on the Special K Facebook page last week there were lots of people making comments and (inaccurate) judgements about my health, my lifestyle, what I promote etc. It seems that there are a few people completely missing the point of Special K‘s #OwnIt campaign, and why I’m involved, so I thought that it was important for me to write a blog post to give you all a bit of background about me and why I was so keen to team up with them.

Pretty shoes for plus size feet

Staavias - pretty shoes for plus size feet

Gustavia Lui is a total #girlboss – she’s not even 30 and already she has spotted a problem in the fashion industry and come up with a solution. She’s the managing director of Staavias, a New Zealand based brand making pretty shoes for plus size feet. Forget boring clunky shoes or jandals, these are stylish shoes in eye catching designs, especially for large feet – and they even do half sizes. I asked Gustavia a few questions to find out more about how she got started and what we can look forward to. Continue reading

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
