Last night, the boything and I went out on a date night to celebrate the end of Junk Free June. The Garden Shed is a new-ish bistro that’s not far from where I live, and I had a lunch meeting there recently and thought the food was delicious so I wanted to share it with my love (and check out their dinner menu).

I get a lot of people asking me questions about styling, body confidence, self love, exercising, where to shop… you name it. I wanted to put a call out and ask you: what do you want to know? This is your chance to Ask Meagan and take advantage of my wealth of knowledge about plus size style, self love and life as a curvy babe. Continue reading
If you’re a mama to be, congratulations! I’ve had a number of people asking me where to find plus size maternity wear in New Zealand, so I took up the challenge and scouted out some places with stylish clothes (both in New Zealand and overseas) so you can keep being your fabulous stylish self as your wee one grows and your body changes.
While I’m a stripes girl through and through, when I look in my wardrobe I realised that I’ve got a bit of a secret love for polka dots. Those spots have snuck in to my life – on my makeup bag, on my onesie, and on my clothes, and I have to say that I’m a fan! It started out with small spots, but now I’m going for big, bold contrasting spots. Continue reading
When I got up this morning, it was 1ºC. That’s not really a temperature that I operate well at (who does, really?), and it made me acutely aware that I don’t own any sweaters. After my closet sale and donating a whole lot of clothes, shoes and beauty products to women who needed them more than I do … I’m going to have to do a bit of shopping to find something warm and snuggly.

I’ve heard people talking about iHerb.com for a long time, and I have read about the great things they had to offer on a lot of my favourite beauty blogs (I’m looking at you Cassandra Myee, Lena Talks Beauty and Nana Wintour…) so I finally gave in and placed my first iHerb order. That leads me to this (cue drumroll): my first ever iHerb haul.
I get a lot of emails and comments from curvy girls wanting to know where to get hot sassy lingerie (I’m talking hot for the bedroom, not everyday lingerie), and until now I’ve been able to suggest a few places but never actually tried anything out for myself. Until now…
My favourite place to be is always near the ocean. Whether I’m at home in Auckland, in my hometown of Gisborne, or travelling about something always brings me back to water. It’s really no surprise that my favourite places in Auckland happen to be near the water. I took advantage of a spot of sunshine in what was a very cold windy weekend to head down and look at my city from across the harbour – and of course I had to go for a bit of a nautical theme with my outfit.

I’m pretty picky when it comes to flowers – I know what I like (peonies, hydrangeas, vintage roses and amaryllis, for the record) and what I don’t (carnations, most chrysanthemums and most lilies). The same goes for florals in fashion – I’m either all in or all out and I think I might have … maybe four? floral pieces in my wardrobe (two of them are made from the same fabric). One of those select few pieces is this kimono from Kiwi designers DMONIC INTENT.
Neutral tones. It’s a term you hear thrown about by savvy fashionistas, but what are neutral tones and how do you wear them? I know that a lot of you aren’t sure, so in response to all of the people who get in touch asking, I thought I’d put together a handy guide. Don’t worry, it’s much easier than you might think!
