When I was asked if I’d attend the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 in New York last week for a work assignment I didn’t need asking twice. Only a fool wouldn’t have jumped at the chance! However, this did mean overcoming my fear of being filmed.

On Saturday 16th March I was lucky enough to see one of my heroes collection of paintings. Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) had 12 rooms (yes 12 rooms!) worth of work displayed in the Tate Modern. All his most famous pieces of work are on display until April, and some lesser know pieces of work too.

So after 14 years of sucking on those chemical ridden sticks I’m finally free! My name’s Johanna and I’m an ex smoker. BUT… why did no one tell me this comes at an emotional price?
