I suppose every new blog needs an introduction…

Hello blogsphere, welcome to my blog where I brain dump everything that’s inside of my head. I’ve been wanting to create a platform where I can share my favourite things in life, experiences, travels and connect with like minded people. It has taken me some time to finally DO IT!

For those of you that don’t know me, I’m Hana. I was born and raised in South Korea and moved to London when I was 18. It’s been a hell of a ride and I’m finally at a place in my life, at 23, where I feel good about myself and the friends I have surrounded myself with. I’m a marketing manager at a lovely ice lolly company called LICKALIX and I’m also a photographer. It’s been my passion and love since the age of well… since I could hold things with my hand. I really fell into it when I was fourteen and bullied in high school. It was a therapeutic outlet for me and really helped with my self-esteem. You gotta do whatcha gotta do to get through those tough years of adolescence. It’s now my job and I LOVE IT. I could probably do it full-time but I decided to be an adult and have an actual proper 9-6 job to pay those bills, because LONDON is expensive af. So here I am.

Originally, I wanted to start this blog when I finished my undergraduate studies in December 2015 but I sort of dove straight into full-time work and haven’t had a second to sort out my thoughts and life. I knew I wouldn’t have time for extra curricular activities but what I didn’t know was that there wouldn’t be ANY TIME FOR ANYTHING. So I’ve decided to sacrifice sleep because time spent on exploring my creativity is more of a priority for me. We all have to choose what makes us happy right?

So welcome to my blog! I’m looking forward to connecting with those of you who want to get to know me, whether you’re here for travel advice, to look at pretty photos or to follow my journey… all is welcome!

Just a side note: I love constructive criticism and feedback, but I don’t allow cyber bullying on my page. So if you’re here to spread negativity, please just don’t. It’s not nice and that’s not how you should treat human beings. Just sayin’.

Otherwise, welcome to HANADORE – a public sphere where I hope we can spread and share our creativity and stories!
