Lessons From the Classroom – Maths

It’s time for my next instalment of Lessons From the Classroom, and it’s a beefy one. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that maths was never my strong point. Today, I’m delving into all of those repressed memories of that little wonky-toothed bespectacled child who never quite understood anything beyond… Continue reading Lessons From the Classroom – Maths

29 | Another Bloody Lockdown Edition

I can’t say I ever expected to have two lockdown birthdays in my lifetime, but here we are. Despite that, my 29th birthday on the 4th May was still a good one, and this year, since discovering and falling in love with Baby Yoda - sorry, Grogu - I didn’t even mind that people were… Continue reading 29 | Another Bloody Lockdown Edition

29 Lessons

This post is becoming somewhat of a birthday tradition. I started this coming up to my 27th birthday, and I’ve updated the post each year after. It’s interesting looking back on last year’s post - as my naïve little self had been hoping lockdown would have been over by the time my birthday on the… Continue reading 29 Lessons

August 2020 Wrap Up

Hey friends - hope you’re all good! By the time you’re reading this I will hopefully be back into the swing of things with my post schedule, but as I’m writing this, I’m still desperately trying to queue up some content so I don’t get so behind again. You may end up reading my August… Continue reading August 2020 Wrap Up

Jewellery Box Stories

This particular post idea was inspired by a blog by New Lune, looking at life lessons and stories behind favourite jewellery pieces. Anyone who knows me will know that I love my jewellery. I’ve recently started branching out into wearing a few Marianne-inspired earrings (sorry, that will be the only Normal People reference in this… Continue reading Jewellery Box Stories

Tattoo Tales

I’ve written about my experience getting my first tattoo as part of my 30 Before 30 series (which btw, I’m SMASHING...jks I’ve done sweet FA throughout 2020 and the early part of 2021), but I wanted to share a bit more about why I chose them and the meanings behind each one. I’ve wanted a… Continue reading Tattoo Tales

My Favourite Mama J Memories | Mother’s Day 2020

Tomorrow here in the UK, it's Mother's Day. I won't lie, it's going to be a pretty shitty one this year. For the first time since I was at uni, I'm unable to see my Mum tomorrow. In fact, I haven't seen her in nearly 3 weeks because she's been poorly and of course, with… Continue reading My Favourite Mama J Memories | Mother’s Day 2020

How I’ve Changed in 10 Years

Admittedly, this is probably something I should have posted a little bit earlier in 2020, but I struggled to get out the content I’d already planned, so anything extra was definitely a bit unrealistic. Anyway, towards the end of 2019, there were loads of people doing the Ten Year Challenge. I had a go at… Continue reading How I’ve Changed in 10 Years

Swiftie Heaven, Comedy and Festivities: A Review of October, November and December

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

2019 in Review

I can’t believe we’re officially coming to the end of 2019. It only feels like yesterday I was writing my 2018 in Review post, which just so happened to be my first ever post on Sassy Cat Lady. It’s so cliche to say that the time has flown by, but it really has done this… Continue reading 2019 in Review
