About Me

My name is Amy, I’m 27 and I live in Wiltshire with my husband and my cat. I work in digital media and I’ve love to one day become a writer. I’m a lover of gin, I’m obsessed with Taylor Swift, and I’m a well established crazy cat lady.

I regularly binge watch TV boxsets, with my favourite shows including Frasier, Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother. I’m also a huge fan of The Inbetweeners, Peep Show and Scrubs. I also love stand up comedy, with Russell Howard and Lee Evans being my most favourite comedians.

My music tastes are pretty eclectic. As I’ve said, I love Taylor Swift and have a major girl crush on her. The rest of my Spotify library consists of pure cheese, a little current chart stuff, 90s and 00s pop, and songs that have been featured on episodes of Grey’s Anatomy.

Other than writing, my main hobbies are scrapbooking and reading. I especially love books with a focus on mental health, my favourite being Mad Girl by Bryony Gordon. I’m also quite a fan of books written by comedians – Sarah Millican’s How to Be Champion is a firm favourite.

Sassy Cat Lady is generally a lifestyle blog that also incorporates my life with OCD and anxiety. It’s my umpteenth attempt at becoming a successful blogger, but this time I’m doing things properly, as after starting my job in October, I’ve realised that writing is something I’d like to pursue full time. In addition to a few reviews and lifestyle tips, my aim is to bring you a little insight into what living with OCD and anxiety is like, but with a dash of humour thrown in. I hope you enjoy it!
