Hi there, I’m Anika (pronounced ah-nee-kah) I’m the gal behind this blog. I’m a 21 year-old who used to have dreams of being a fashion magazine editor. I created this blog as part of a university application (I never wanted to go, but my teachers made me apply) and really fell in love with creating content online. As my own little corner of the internet, I love to share the things that make me happy, and keep me positive. I enjoy sharing my style and talking about some of my favourite items at the moment.
As for my everyday job, I’m a marketing assistant and budding sewing extraordinaire. My mum’s a design so she’s helping me to learn the basics when it comes to pattern cutting, fashion design and everything inbetween. I’m also a freelance writer – which is soooooo much fun.
What do I like? Well, I love to read, draw (even though I can’t) and binge-watch The Office, Friends, Gilmore Girls, any romcom and reality trash TV. I also really like fashion – I have since being a little girl. I remember carrying a portfolio of my outfit designs everywhere I went, just hoping I’d bump into Anna Wintour in the streets of Yorkshire and she’d offer me a prime position in the industry.
When I started Anika May, I thought it would just be a summer project and I’d forget about it. In fact, blogging has become one of those hobbies that I’m obsessed with. I love every minute of the process, and learning new skills along the way.
