My Favourite Mental Health Portrayals in TV and Film

My own mental health condition means that I tend to take a liking towards films and TV shows that feature mental health themes. Obviously they’re not the only things I watch, but as an ex-psychology student, my curiosity gets the better of me. I’m not sure specifically what the appeal is, but I find the… Continue reading My Favourite Mental Health Portrayals in TV and Film

Things I Want to Achieve in 2020

This may seem like a similar post to my New Year’s Resolutions, and you’re right, there might be a bit of overlap. However, I generally see a difference between the two - resolutions are changes that I want to make in 2020, while goals are things that I want to achieve. If that makes sense?… Continue reading Things I Want to Achieve in 2020

As promised, better late than never, here is my final quarterly round-up of 2019. It feels weird to be writing it even though we’re in January, but it’s finally here. Anyway, not only is this my final quarterly round-up of 2019, it’s actually my final one full stop. Mainly because, I’m switching to monthly ones.… Continue reading Swiftie Heaven, Comedy and Festivities: A Review of October, November and December

Having a Smear Test: What to Expect During Your Cervical Screening

A nice early warning for everyone - in this post, I’ll be talking about vaginas. Anyway, now that’s out of the way, let’s get on with today’s post. So today, as it’s Cervical Cancer Awareness Week, I thought I’d put together a post on what happens when you have a smear test.

Blogging Goals for 2020

Since my year’s blog-iversary I’ve been thinking hard about setting myself some goals to develop my blog further. Ultimately the end goal (albeit one that’s a very long way off) is to make blogging my full time job, whether I do freelancing or make money from my own blog, but setting that as a goal… Continue reading Blogging Goals for 2020

2019: A Year in Comedy

One thing that my husband and I are known for is our love for stand up comedy. Since 2010, birthday and Christmas gifts have often been in the form of comedy tickets, and it’s meant over the years we’ve seen some of our favourite comedians, including Russell Howard, Lee Evans, and Jimmy Carr. Back in… Continue reading 2019: A Year in Comedy

Lessons I Learned in My First Year of Blogging

It’s hard to believe that I have officially been running (is that the right word?) Sassy Cat Lady for a whole year. As some of you may know, this was not my first attempt at blogging. There were several unsuccessful attempts in the past, mainly because I gave up too soon. No one was reading… Continue reading Lessons I Learned in My First Year of Blogging

New Year’s Resolutions for 2020

It’s that time of year where I put together my list of futile attempts to better myself for the new year. Looking back at last year’s, I haven’t done all that well in 2019. I’m hoping that 2020 will be the year I actually make some progress with my resolutions and improve my mental health,… Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions for 2020
