We absolutely love your style at Hachu HQ; who/what has had the biggest influence on your personal style?
Thank you so much, I have so many different styles dependent on my mood. Sometimes I want to dress up in super girly dresses like @LornaLuxe and other days you’ll catch me in comfies/baggy jeans, I love @missjoslin and @lissyroddy for this!
What does a ‘Day In The Life with Ani’ look like?
First things first, is a large cup of coffee followed by catching up on any emails I need to go through before I start my job. I own my own business so I work pretty much 6 days a week! I then get home, walk my dog, cook dinner and catch up on the gram!
How did you get into fashion blogging?
I remember back in January I was in Milan with the girls, they were all saying I should make a blog with all the pictures I take. I got back and I started taking pictures. My style and the way I shoot has developed so much in that time and I love the way it’s going, it may sound crazy but I find shooting/blogging super therapeutic and I can’t tell you how much it has helped my confidence.

When you’re not taking fire #OOTD shots, where are we most likely to find you?
Probably in front of the TV with a cup of tea watching Netflix!
What’s one wardrobe essential you can’t live without?
Personally, it’s a good pair of jeans. Denim goes with everything, dress up or down!
What’s one habit from lockdown you’ll be keeping up in future?
Taking the time to slow down a little and value time with family and friends.
Top tip for taking the perfect IG shot?
I always try to place my camera on a stand in front of a window, so that the light is always behind the camera but facing me oh and get yourself a Bluetooth clicker, super useful when taking photos alone.
Social media can be overwhelming sometimes, how do you manage to keep your online space positive?
"Ignore the hate, we don’t need it!"
I also have an app lock built on my phone, so I don’t use social media between around 9pm-7am.
Got anything fun planned now that lockdown is over?
Fun girly brunches with the girls is definitely overdue! I cannot wait to dress up.
