The Team at The Ana Mum Diary

Amanda Cottingham - The Ana Mum DiaryI’m Amanda Cottingham, the one on the left.   This is my top ranking UK lifestyle blog – The Ana Mum Diary.  The Ana Mum Diary includes topics such as travel, home interiors, design, food and fashion.

In the beginning, this blog was a way of documenting our life.  It has grown and evolved 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 collaborative 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.

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 each month.


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.
