Sweet Ambrosia

New Zealand plus size blogger Meagan Kerr wears IGIGI Ambrosia wiggle dress

Have you ever put on a dress and immediately felt absolutely amazing in it? That’s how I felt the minute I shimmied into the Ambrosia dress from IGIGI. When I looked at it on their website I thought it was beautiful, but I’ll admit that it took a moment of bravery to order it. It’s curve hugging and it leaves no room to hide: to me it’s a bold dress. I almost chickened out and chose something else, but I’m so glad I went with this, because it honestly makes me feel like a million bucks. View Post

Environmentally Conscious Fashion and Beauty

Making Environmentally Conscious Fashion and Beauty Choices: New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears 17 Sundays Sage Striped Duster Cardi

It’s Earth Day today, and in the past I’ve done things like spend an evening with friends not using electricity (backyard candlelit BBQs are so much fun!), but this year I wanted to take a moment to think about how we could be making more environmentally conscious fashion  and beauty choices. It might seem like a small thing, and it might seem silly to some, but the choices that you make as one person or as a family, they add up. View Post

The Fundamentals of Cupcakes and Body Love

Guest blog by Grace Stratton from Letters to Corey

Cupcakes and body love

When I was a young girl I used to love baking, but I really disliked following a recipe. Don’t get me wrong,  I follow instructions but I have always struggled with the concept of doing something for an outcome somebody else designed.

I wanted to make cupcakes that were entirely my own. Yes, they would have the fundamentals: butter, sugar, baking powder and so on – but if I wanted to make them pink, that’s what I would do. If I wanted to add chocolate chips, then so be it. View Post

I’m Having Surgery

Meagan Kerr ready for an MRI

So, I’m having surgery on Tuesday and feeling pretty anxious about it. Some of you know that I’ve been having some issues on and off for a few years now, and I haven’t wanted to talk about it much, simply because I haven’t had the answers I needed to be able to tell you what’s going on. But now I do, so bring on all of the oversharing (this is why I’m a blogger right? Because I’m all about the overshare?). View Post

Double Take: Isla-Maree Miracle Dress

New Zealand plus size blogger Meagan Kerr wears Isla-Maree Curve+ Miracle Dress and Cotton On City Slicker Tote Bag

It’s important to me that my clothes are versatile. While I am a serial outfit repeater and will gladly wear the same clothes over and over (because going with what you love is important, right?), I want to be able to change them up for different occasions, different seasons, different moods. Take the Isla-Maree Miracle Dress for example: it has a reversible neckline (so you can wear it either way depending on your mood) and can be styled for almost any weather in a number of ways. Make sure you’re paying attention, because (spoiler alert!) you could win one of your own… View Post
