The second instalment of, ‘My Therapist Gave Me An Assignment- Write About Your Ex’  I kid you not, I was (basically) five hair cuts away from shaving my hair off and attacking an uber van after replaying my breakup over and over in my head. Getting dumped in Union Square was both partially embarrassing and partially...

Fyodor Golan Studio Visit

Before their SS16 show later this week, we visit the Fyodor Golan studio to discuss fashion as an art form, striking a balance between creativity and commerciality and keeping up with the pace of London. Sugar, spice, and everything nice, that’s what girls, and London based label Fyodor Golan, are made of. However Fyodor Podgorny and...

Why Do I Use The Shell In My Work?

My Therapist Gave Me an Assignment: Write About Your Ex

Breakups are really hard. Like REALLY hard. Mine, (at times I’m scared to say) caused me to re-enter therapy. Therapy– especially for people like me, is a super good thing, but why I decided to re-join the psychiatry game makes me feel a bit embarrassed. I’ve been seeing my therapist every other week for three...
