Welcome to zimmazimmathreecoursewinner! A blog about life, style and being inconvenienced by a brain tumour.

My name is Sarah Gaffney-Lang, and I’m an operations manager turned lifestyle blogger (it happens!).

Let’s kick off with some clarification. I’m going to be bold and say that this isn’t a ‘brain tumour blog’. At least not in the traditional sense.

There are lots of them out there, and that has never really been ‘my thing’.

The diagnosis was, of course, life-changing (I flew to Lisbon the next morning, so that softened the blow!) – along with the (ongoing) treatment that left me unable to walk.

I know what it’s like to be very-much-awake whilst someone has a poke around in your brain (don’t worry – they were all very qualified), but you know what? I don’t dwell on it.

Life carries on, and that’s the fun bit.

The t-bomb does get its fair share of coverage, but let’s just say it’s not the star of the show.

zimmazimmathreecoursewinner is where you’ll find my life and likes. Fashion, beauty, lifestyle and even a bit of photography.

In addition to this blog, I have written for other online publications including Huffington Post and Chapter W.


In March 2018 I felt my blog was grown up enough to be moved to self-hosted WordPress. Unfortunately, some blog-feathers were ruffled in the process meaning that in some older posts (pre-March 2018), links may be broken. I’m (slowly) working my way through trying to fix this where possible.
