How to be a Londoner in Winter (Blogmas Day 4)

Taking to Twitter, I asked what you dear readers was the key to being a Londoner. The most popular answer was “a frosty look/attitude” and to be honest, dear readers, winter really isn’t hear until every last Londoner is frostier than usual. Despite the high rise buildings and pollution that keeps London at least five […]

3 best places to get a coffee in London this Christmas (Blogmas Day 2)

Yesterday you read about what to do, today is all about the London fix. The coffee fix that is. While I am partial to a cheeky Gingerbread and Cream Latte from Costa, London has plenty of alternatives: 1. Cupcakes and Shhht (Elephant & Castle). Buried in the depths of Lambeth – no really, it’s like […]

4 things to do at Christmas in London (Blogmas Day 1)

Christmas in London, even Christmas season in London, is unlike any other. Biting winds trapped in central streets, grand sparkling lights to rival most capital cities and the grandeur of city and residents cranks up tenfold. The city is suddenly even more alive with merry makers and festive spirits. And while this may sound similar […]

Ibiza Part Three: making the most of Closing Season.

Ibiza Part Three: making the most of Closing Season.

It’s safe to say I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Ibiza. But then again, I love to travel and I will always have fun wherever I go. I talk to everyone and, only if necessary will I walk the same route twice. So what do you do if you A) don’t speak the language, and B) […]

Ibiza Part Two: The 3 Stages of Relaxing.

Stage One: Detaching From Stress. Monday morning rolled around and I couldn’t sleep in past 7am UK time. Physically couldn’t go back to sleep.

Ibiza Part One: Taking a break.

The baby was crying and kicking my seat. People were beginning to look around, I took a deep breathe and all of sudden a guy behind me said “it gets worse as you get older”. I began to laugh. There in Easy Jet economy. Where an hour before I could feel my brain beginning to […]

Four things I learned living in London for a year.

Four things I learned living in London for a year.

August Bank Holiday 2016: I moved to London. August Bank Holiday 2017: London is my home. The above is something I never thought would be possible for me. Either because of expenses or courage. But within a week and a half a year ago, I had packed up my life in Southampton and moved it […]

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 […]

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. The […]

#HanMeetsLondon: broke in the city and dating.

London is a fast-paced city. Work moves fast, life moves fast, and dating is – you guessed it – also fast. People tend to fall into two very general categories, the date and ditch or serious and (we would hope) committed. There doesn’t tend to be a comfortable in between when it comes to a […]
