Hello, it’s so nice for you to join me, let me introduce myself. I’m Anna Nuttall living in London and married to my husband Richard. I worked in retail for 10 years before I left and fulfilled my addiction to social media and blogging, where I’m now work as freelance digital marketing manager and a blogger. I graduated 2012 from Fashion Journalism at University For The Creative Arts where my passion for writing (especially blogging) really took off, I’m not good at expressing myself through speech (I have a slight speech impediment) so I feel more comfortable writing things down. Feel free to say hi anytime. x

How Would I Describe Myself?
I would describe myself like a magnum ice cream, at first it really hard to bite into then once you get into the soft layer you opened all kind of yummish, this translate as I’m very shy at first glance then once you gotten through the first layer I’m very talkative and friendly. My interest in general life is fashion and lifestyle; I’m never to far away from fashion! I’m always wondering in and out of fashion shops, I spend most evening surfing all the designers fashion websites. I enjoy wondering around London and finding new boutique and curling up in coffee house reading the latest vogue, I love trying out new make-up and cosmetic and I’m a huge Lush user! My favorite designers are Anna Sui, Laura Lees and Betsy Johnson, their styles really inspire me as they use bold bright colors blended together to create really beautiful clothes.
The things I enjoy most is being a complete geek, whether it’s on the computer or sitting in a corner reading my book on the kindle. I’m a huge RPG gamer and can be seen playing some fantasy-driven computer games on my PlayStation. Admittedly I’m a techo-aholic if you hasn’t guessed, I don’t have a life – I have a blog and a computer. Yeah I’m a loner (but not a weird loner – just a shy one).
We met when I was 18 and he was 19, he just finish 6th form college and I was still at a 6th form starting my second year, we both worked for a home store but on different department. I think the first time I met him he was on a pogo stick (sic) and asked if I wanted a go – can’t remember if I did as I didn’t want to look a fool! None the less that broke the ice and we started to say hi to each other, he would often finish his shift as I was starting mine so often would wait for me to come in and say hi and ask how I was. We eventually became casual friends and exchange numbers, it was coming up to the company christmas party and he wanted my advice on how to ask a girl out (feeling a little gutted as I thought he liked me) so I gave him some simple advice for a friend but to cut a long story short the girl turned him down. At the christmas party he saw I was on my own (as my date didn’t show up) and asked if he wanted me to dance, I said sure (by that time I was on my 4th alcohol drink) and we just spent the rest of the evening together – I remember we danced to Kylie ‘Can’t get you outta my head’.
The morning after we texted each other asked how each other was (hangover and sore feet from dancing) he then asked me out on a date, it was my first date so I was proper nervous. We went to a pub and we spent the whole evening talking to each other, he was interested in photography and I was sort-of- interested in blogging and messing around on geocities website so we both connected and knew we have similar interested.
Over the coming days and week we saw more off each other, It turns into months and after 4 month together he took me to Paris which was so romantic.
In September he was going to go off to uni so we both wasn’t sure if we could still be together, it was mate of his that convinced him that it could work and not to break it off (*phew*) – not only did it work but I ended up living with him in his rented flat all throughout uni.
After two years now together, we both agreed not to do anything until he finished uni however when out of the blue he propose to me, he got down on 1 knee and it was amazing!
He finished uni and for me at that time I was feeling a little lost with my life as I didn’t know what I wanted to do so I spent all my time hanging around him and trying to find out what I like and didn’t like.
For a time being he moved in with my parents as he didn’t wanted to separated from me, we eventually saved up a deposit and started renting out own place.
After 8 years together and still engaged we thought it about time we got married and on December 16th 2011 on the exact day we met 10 years perviously (the date off the christmas party) we was married.
Article On Me
Here is an article someone wrote about me:
Despite height, quiet voice and Anna’s apologetic first words claiming she’s “quite a shy, nervous person” I couldn’t have thought anything more opposite than that upon first meeting her. Anna N, surname also known as G due to her recent engagement to boyfriend of nine years, is anything but quiet. When asked a simple question there’s no stopping an honest and detailed answer that goes back to her childhood, giving the reasons why she is the person she is today.
Anna, aged twenty-six, hasn’t had an easy ride trying to pursue her dream of being “the next Carrrie Bradshaw, however stereotypical that may sound”. There have been many hurdles she’s had to overcome during her early years in education, along with her health. Anna attended a single sex boarding school in London which was never much to her liking, taking trips home as often as she could. As we all know girls can be extremely talented at being mean, but the personal stories that Anna confided in me about the way her fellow class mates treated her, I would find quite scarring. It made me wonder why on earth she would want to go into another school where the class has a high majority of females, if not almost all girls. “The girls here are nothing like the ones at school, I prefer it here as I feel everyone is so much more mature and relaxed” she said “being the oldest on the course is also a bonus as all this youth keeps me so energetic.
