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, Continue reading



My skin story

Meagan Kerr after using Dermalogica skincare

My skin is looking pretty good after a few weeks of my new skincare routine

I was pretty lucky when I was a teenager – I had good skin and didn’t get many pimples. For me, my skin issues came later. In my 20’s my complexion was all over the place – sometimes it was dry, sometimes it was oily, and I had lots of breakouts. There have been times when I haven’t wanted to leave the house because of how my face look; I started wearing makeup to cover up my blemishes, and unsurprisingly that didn’t make it any better!

Plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Kate Madison shorts from The Warehouse

Last summer I wore shorts almost every single day. It was the first time since I was a child that I had felt really comfortable in shorts, and I felt liberated! I decided that I am going to wear shorts as much as possible this summer, and I want you to join me. I know that some of you are already thinking “oh hell no” at the idea of baring your knees for all to see, but bear with me for a moment. Continue reading


Hair removal 101

Brought to you by Marzena

What kind of hair removal is best?

When I first started shaving my legs and underarms as a teenager it was definitely because that’s what seemed to be expected of me as a woman. If I didn’t, I got teased at school when I got changed for gym class. There was a few years in my 20’s where I grew out my underarm hair and didn’t care whether guys preferred a full bush or none at all, but now I choose to remove my hair because my genes have seen me blessed with thick dark hair that I find itchy and irritating for my skin. I still don’t care if guys prefer a full bush or not. Continue reading

Keep calm and pack your carry on

My trip to Melbourne is just around the corner (I fly out this weekend), and now that I have my travel plans sorted it is time to think about what I’m packing. Clothes are pretty easy, I planned my outfits as soon as I knew for sure that I was going (which might sound excessive but I was doing a wardrobe clearout and wanted to make sure I had all the things I wanted to wear squirrelled away safely). What’s important to me is what goes in my carry on bags – the bits and pieces I will have to keep my comfortable and entertained for my flight. Continue reading
