Writer’s Block: terrorism, politics and humanity.

Do you ever have that feeling when you have lots to say but aren’t sure how to channel it? Or you go to write and you feel paralysed with fear? I was a mix of both last week. I had a serious case of writer’s block. See, a lot has been happening. Both around me and in my life. The…

Han Meets Quarter Life Crisis!?

This is partly satirical. I always scoffed at the idea of a quarter-life crisis. “Really?! Breaking down and feeling lost in your twenties?! ¬†What a concept!” My eighteen year old self would mock. *Me at 19 (Paris 2012) – hope you enjoy the massive trendy side bang… Then graduation hit and the reality hit.

So when I was invited to a manicure at Backstage Beauty, it got me thinking just how perfect a little treat for myself could be. Especially with Fashion Week…

Han Meets Strikes

So for anyone who works or lives in London, you will of course have experienced some form of the tube strikes. Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time I have experienced strikes. I lived in Brazil in the lead up to the Football World Cup 2014 – I can happily blame the state of my dissertation on football,…
