Hello! I’m Anna and at the time of writing this blurb I’m a twenty-something Brighton-based blogger with a penchant for Parks & Rec GIFS and Ryan Gosling memes. There isn’t much more to know, but I guess I can’t wrap up an ‘About Me’ section in two short sentences now, can I?


Those two loves aside, I’m also a fan of minimalist makeup, minimalism in general, monochrome and Whistles. Yep, I’m a real party starter. I’ve also been doing this blogging and YouTube malarkey for years. Around six to be exact. It started off as ‘Vivianna Does Makeup’ in my university bedroom when I was procrastinating from my Psychology degree and has now morphed into The Anna Edit; partly because Vivianna was a pseudonym that I dreamt up at Uni because I was terrified of anyone finding out about my weird internet habit, and secondly because I’m older (definitely), wiser (maybe), have a few more hairs on my chin (unfortunately yes) and enjoy typing out posts on a bit of everything now; from food to fitness and beauty to books.


I post videos on my YouTube channel twice a week (Wednesdays and Sundays at 9am GMT) and post here every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 9am if you fancy a read with your morning coffee.

I also dabble in the world of Capsule Wardrobes if that’s your kind of thing (see a playlist on that here), like a red lip from time to time (NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square is my favourite) and would quite happily spend the rest of my life in leggings (more specifically the Lululemon Align Pants) and you know what? I think that wraps up everything you need to know. Enjoy!
