Episode 20. Anna Newton On Beauty Crushes, (Festive) Capsule Wardrobes & Content Creation

This week we are overjoyed to be joined by one of our ultimate girl crushes, Anna Newton, founder of The Anna Edit blog and YouTube channel. 

Anna has long been one of our go-to content creators for ALL things beauty, fashion, wellbeing and mindful living and we are so excited to share Anna's take on the festive season with you. 

From how to navigate party dressing as a capsule wardrobe fan, to why you need to revisit glittery makeup and a deep dive into affections for Ryan Gosling . . . 

This is a SUPER fun episode, and we hope that you'll love virtually hanging out with us as much as we did IRL. 

This episode is perfect for beauty lovers and anyone curious about developing content for a blog, social media or YouTube. You'll also get to listen in on some sleepover-esque girl talk which has us genuinely crying with laughter.
