Anna in Wonderland


I'm Anna, one of the few bloggers who doesn't really like being photographed but prefers to be on the other side of the camera. I came to the UK from the US in 2013, after having lived in Amsterdam pursuing an MA at the University of Amsterdam. I recently graduated with my PhD in Holocaust History from the University of Leicester. 

My blog is pretty chill, and I'm turning over a new leaf where I'm creating content for myself, not to stress myself out. Here, you'll find lifestyle, travel and things about living with two chronic illnesses: lupus SLE and interstitial cystitis. I also like to post cheesy and inspiring quotes on Instagram and in my stories, so don't hesitate to check me out. 

Currently, I live in Milton Keynes with my partner, Luke, and our dog, Patrick. 


Where are you from?
Originally from California, but living in the UK at the moment. I have also lived in Holland and very briefly in Hungary and France. 

Why do you live in the UK?
I came for a PhD in History, stayed because I fell in love. 

I have a question, can I email you?!

Why is your blog called Anna in Wonderland?
Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my very favorite stories as long as I can remember. I was even Alice for Halloween when I was seven. It has a special place in my heart and I collect Alice memorabilia.

Why is a Victorian key your symbol?
The Secret Garden and Alice in Wonderland are two of my absolute favorite stories and two books I grew up reading. They both predominately feature keys in their stories and it is a really simple design, which is why I felt it was perfect for my blog.

How old are you?
Probably older than you think, which I'm not sure is a good or bad thing. Basically in my early 30s.

Didn't this blog go on hiatus for a while? What happened?
Lots of things. You can read about some of it here and you can also read some of it here.

What can I expect from your blog?
Lifestyle, travel and chronic illness content.

What do you do for a living? 
I get asked this question a lot, and a lot of people make pretty wild assumptions. Right now, I work for an SEO company, a charity dealing with Holocaust education and also dabble in other projects relating to Holocaust history and/or theatre and writing.

No, I don't make a living blogging or Instagramming.
