How it all began

Starting over: the decision that changed my life and how my blog got started

I get a lot of people asking me how I got started in blogging, and since my blog turns five this year (has it really been that long?) I thought I’d share a little bit of my back story about how This is Meagan Kerr came about.

In 2010 I was working full time as an administrator for a non-profit, and in the weekends and after hours I was working as a photographer. I shot portraits, some really fun creative fashion and beauty editorials, and even the occasional wedding. I’m the kind of person who always wants to know more, to be better at what I do and to push myself further, View Post

Inbetweenie Fashion Bloggers

Inbetweenie Bloggers You Should Know About

Inbetweenie sizes are those on the smaller end of plus size (14-18)* – an inbetweenie babe could shop at some plus size stores (these sometimes start from a size 12), and can usually find clothes in straight sized stores too (at least, they can in New Zealand, where most straight size stores carry up to a size 18 – this may be a very different case outside NZ). While inbetweenie women might have a wider selection of places to shop, they are sometimes looked down on by other members of the plus size community, something I’ve never been able to understand. Body acceptance isn’t just about people who are over a size 18, it’s about understanding that all bodies are good bodies, and loving yourself at all sizes and shapes. With that, I wanted to share some of my favourite inbetweenie fashion bloggers – check them out and be inspired! View Post

I am nzgirl’s Next Top Blogger!

I’m super excited to report that last night nzgirl named me their “Next Top Blogger” for October, hurray!

Many thanks to the nzgirl team, especially Jo, for encouraging me to write – I am very new to the blogging world but am really enjoying sharing my thoughts/opinions/favourite things with the world.

Head over to nzgirl and check out my posts, let me know which ones you like by “liking”, “tweeting” or “pinning” (or all three!) and commenting – I want to know what you’d like to read about in future posts! Also, you can follow me on nzgirl if you’re a member (meaning that my posts will come up in your home page on nzgirl) or follow my facebook page, where I post links to all of my nzgirl posts.

Also stay tuned here – I will be posting more photography in the next few months, once uni is over.
