Hello there and Welcome to my little space on the internet. As you’ve hopped on to my blog, look around, get inspired and read a little about me down below.
Who am I?
I’m just a girl living near the Pacific dreaming about big things. 🙂
Where are you from?
I was born in the mystic country India in a beautiful city of Bengaluru.
Where have you lived?
While I grew up mostly in Bengaluru, my parents moved to Long Island, New York when I was 9. Since then I’ve lived in Corvallis, Oregon, San Jose, CA and currently Saratoga, CA.
What languages do you speak?
At home, my husband, children and I mostly speak English. My native language is Kannada. I understand very little Tamil and still learning the language and I want to learn French someday.
Who lives with you?
I live with my husband Arvind and my two beautiful children Aiden and Nadia. Aiden was born in 2012 and Nadia in 2015. These three people are my heart and soul and I cannot imagine a day without them.
What do you do?
Since I was 5 years old, I have always wanted to follow in my daddy’s footsteps and be an engineer. While I knew nothing about what being an engineer meant at that time, I’ve found my passion in UI Engineering where I build beautiful websites used by millions of people all over the world.
Why do you want to be a blogger?
I never thought about blogging until I started using Instagram publicly in May 2016. I’ve always been on Instagram since the very early days but my account has always been private. After Nadia was born, my life became busier than ever. I wanted to break out of the routine and do something where I could go to relax and unwind after a long day. And so The Curly Ana ( previously Ana’s Sweet Style ) was born 🙂
Who takes your pictures?
My husband and my mom when she’s visiting.
What camera do you use?
We started off taking pictures using my IPhone 6. We now use Canon 5D Mark4 iv.
What are your plans for The Curly Ana?
The Curly Ana (previously Ana’s Sweet Style) started off in September 2016 mostly because of my passion in Everyday Fashion. As I started sharing and blogging about my daily outfits, I really missed documenting my journeys with my family and talking about so many other things I’m passionate about. So while The Curly Ana will still focus on Fashion on Instagram, my blog will include Beauty, Fitness and Travel and you can follow along with us on our journeys to amazing destinations through insta stories and pictures.
And that’s a wrap. Now that you know a little about me, I would love to hear from you! Leave your tiny paw-print in the comments section so I can get to know a little about you too 🙂
