Hello there! I’m Ana Free, s’nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by my lifestyle and mommy blog! I’m mama to a gorgeous baby girl called Zoe as well as a four-legged rescue pooch called Indie and wifey to an Argentinian music producer hunk by the name of Rodrigo (but since that’s too long I always call him Rod haha). We live in sunny Los Angeles, CA and started from the ground up out here following our dreams. I love music, writing and singing songs, traveling, doing my makeup, taking photographs, filming videos and spending time with my family. The craziest thing I’ve ever done is skydive and the most embarrassing was probably when I peed in protest on the floor in ballet as a child because the teacher wouldn’t let me go to the bathroom (seriously, when a 6 year old says they need to go, you gotta let ’em)!
As with most creatives, it seems I have a million and one passions and this space is where I get to write, share, ramble and post whatever comes to mind in my world. It’s really just all things casual, travels, mama+baby, fashion, makeup, style and me.
This blog is one of my streams of income (the other is music and we all know there’s hardly any streams there!) so from time to time you might see some sponsored situations happening here and there & on my social media. I only work with brands I truly like, respect and would purchase products from with my own money (and I do)!
I also include affiliate links, namely with Shopstyle Collective and you can see this on many posts where it says “SHOP THIS POST”. I make a little money off that but it doesn’t cost you any extra so don’t worry! You can always by-pass use of these links by clearing cookies on the browser and shop from scratch that way.
Brands also gift me products and, again, I only feature things I genuinely connect with and think my audience would enjoy.
Phew, glad we got that out the way!
