Hey there, I’m Anna Smith. Most days you can find me at a standing desk, clicking away at my corporate job and daydreaming of hopping on the next plane to Milan. I am mostly known for my feminine taste in fashion, changing my hair color 5 times a year, and giving unwarranted relationship advice. People often refer to me as Anna Banana (a nickname my Uncle wittily thought up – as if it was the very first time – when I was 2 years old). I love serving the world by inspiring a sense of style, providing my behind the scenes look as an entrepreneur, and sharing recipes as I learn to make them myself.
The things I am most passionate about are creating purpose and drive in the work environment, supporting non-profit organizations, and spending time with family. I create content for people who are totally into food, fashion, travel, beauty, and business. I am lucky to inspire them to find their own personal fashion sense that doesn’t break the bank, be the catalyst for inventiveness in the kitchen (even if they are starting out knowing only avocado toast), and create a business that not only looks good on the outside but, feels incredible on the inside. As a fashion and food blogger, I’ve been featured on Lauren Conrad, Charm City Wed, Refinery 29, Bridal Pulse, and Recipe Yard.
When I’m not busy working on the blog, you can catch me roaming around in the city of Baltimore with Sam and our Chinese shar pei, Oliver, grabbing take-out from my favorite Indian restaurant, and crying during reruns of ‘This is Us’. If you’re dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me: I took self-defense classes weekly for 6 months last year (a check on my bucket list), I’ve worked in the mortgage industry for almost 5 years, I met Sam at a Mexican restaurant luncheon when I was 13 years old, Sam and I like to think of Canada as our second home (we heavily debate moving there at least 3 times a year), and my ultimate goal for the blog is to grow it to the point of where I am able to write and help others from home when I have babies.
Still here? Let’s connect! Shoot me an email with what you’d love to see on the blog, any questions you might have, or just a simple “hello”.
