The Team at The Ana Mum Diary

Amanda Cottingham - The Ana Mum DiaryI’m Amanda, the one on the left.   This is my lifestyle blog – The Ana Mum Diary.  Its all about my life and family, two girls aged 12 and 5, and two forty something parents.   I chose to call this blog The ‘Ana’ Mum Diary as I wanted to use our initials… a little bit of each of us.

In the beginning, this blog was a way of documenting our life.  It has grown and involved into so much more.  I now use it as an outlet for my passions, to showcase my photography, and to let my readers in on some of my style secrets, hints and tips.  I have been amazed by all the positive things that have come out of it.


Tall Dad - The Ana Mum DiaryI have worked with some fantastic bloggers on campaigns, as well as some really amazing companies, including John Lewis, Royal Caribbean, Homebase, B&Q, Coca-Cola, Warner Bros, Disney, Hotel Chocolat and Micro Scooters.

The Ana Mum Diary includes topics such as family life, fashion, beauty, travel and home and interiors.

I am also the editor of the BritMums home and design round-up, where I hunt out all the best of the interior posts written by bloggers.


Nia The Ana Mum DiaryThe Ana Mum Diary  is highly ranked in both the Tots 100 and as a Homes and Interior blog on the HIBs network, which I am incredibly proud of.  I was also a finalist in the BIBS (Brilliance in Blogging) for 2014 in the style category.

The Ana Mum Diary is varied, and I try to mix it up, to offer real interest to my readers.  If we love it, and what to shout about it, its in!

I am reliable, professional, diligent and my posts are I think most importantly fun!  My readers have been incredibly supportive and offer fantastic feedback and comments.
