You should start a blog, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. Sure… But what to write about? I’m no fashionista nor am I a talented photographer. I don’t know anything about make-up or DIY, can’t cook to save my life… I have no real niche I can share with you. But then it struck me. Why not write about what makes me tick, what I can do, what I love. So this is it. I’ve always loved writing. As a child I would make up stories with my Barbie dolls. As a teenager, I wrote movies in my head, starring myself of course. I have filled up many a diary about my life, my loves and my travels. I loved it and still do. So I love writing and I love travelling. I’m also crazy about theatre, the English language, Robbie Williams, polka dots, strawberries, Pop Art, Gin, Dr. Seuss, 80’s music, vintage inspired stuff, Britpop (is that even a thing anymore?) and films. So I will be sharing these passions with you. But also some of my hardships and the lessons I have learnt from them in the hopes of helping others survive them. This is me, this is So Sassie. Enjoy!
