Bikini Try On!! Anna Louise
Hi Anna, please tell us a little about you?
Hi! My name is Anna and I’m an influencer, model, and designer! I grew up in Michigan and always had a passion for everything creative! From drawing, painting, sewing, designing, and photography! But modeling was always my dream and I moved to Miami to pursue it when I was 19! From there my career took off and now I travel all over while posting on my social media.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
I would say I’m driven, creative, and reserved
Name one your strengths?
My biggest strength is going after anything I want and making my own opportunities.
Best advice ever given?
“Worrying means you suffer twice”
Who has been the biggest influence on your life?
My Dad has been the biggest influence on my life! He always supported the entrepreneur in me! I remember when I was young I wanted to sell the bracelets that I would make and he helped me come up with a business plan. It never happened though haha but I’m pretty sure that was my first business idea!
How and when did you start into modeling?
I got into modeling in Michigan actually! I was 18 and modeling had always been my biggest dream and I wanted to move to Miami or Los Angeles to pursue it. I knew coming without experience and being petite was going to make it nearly impossible! So I found photographers and makeup artists in Michigan to collaborate with me on photoshoots to build a portfolio. I would even go shopping and style the shoots myself!
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
I learned from my biggest failure that basically “ok, the worst happened and it wasn’t as bad as you were dreading”. It doesn’t mean the end of the world and it doesn’t make me a failure! It’s just a huge learning experience! It sucked at the time but you learn a lot and realize that failures and mistakes are inevitable and it’s more about how you move forward.
What is fun and rewarding about modeling? And what is not?
The greatest reward for modeling to me is traveling! I grew up dreaming of tropical beaches and exotic destinations and I’ve been blessed to experience so many now all because of modeling! The downside to modeling is that it can be trying on your mental and physical health. There can be a lot of pressure to be perfect and fit into specific beauty standards. I think when I was younger and new to modeling this was really hard at times but now I’ve learned how to not let it get to you!
What’s your best advice for an aspiring model?
My best advice would be to not let anyone tell you no! I was told many times that I was too short but I didn’t give up and I found my own success. If you believe in yourself, prove everyone wrong!
Who in this world do you admire the most, and why?
I admire my sister more than anyone! She truly has the most beautiful heart and is the most giving and loving person I know! On top of that she’s absolutely gorgeous and never has cared about makeup or fashion haha
What’s next for you in 2021?
2021 for me is dedicated to growing my brand Temptation!
Which magazine or project is still on your bucket list?
I always wanted to be part of Sports Illustrated!
What’s next for you?
Next for me is continuing to grow my brand as an influencer and my clothing brand Temptation! I’m really excited about my brand because it allows me to experience so many different creative fields that I’ve always loved.
Now talking about Instagram, can you share some tips for keeping your account interesting?
I try to keep my account very natural and share the places I go and what I’m doing without trying to make it all fancy! I keep it very casual and real. And I never know where I’ll be next so my content is always changing!
I bet you get millions of it, but what are the best and worst Instagram DM pickup lines you’ve received so far?
Haha yes I’ve definitely seen my share of crazy DMs. I think the best are the clever, funny ones. One that caught my eye recently was “we’re starting things off slow, I like that”. I thought it was really funny because he must have tried to reach out to me previously. The worst are anything that’s too vulgar. No girl wants to hear that
What is your favorite healthy food?
I absolutely LOVE fruit! I can’t get enough fruit and I eat it any time of day. Even as a kid, I used to ask for granny smith apples instead of ice cream for dessert!
What is your favorite cheat food?
My favorite cheat food is definitely a burger!
What is your own definition of happiness?
My kind of happiness is love and gratitude. My loved ones mean so much to me! And I also have grown with self love and not letting other people’s opinions dictate my life. You have to be in love with all the little things in life! Like a good book, cups of coffee, being in nature, and time with your loved ones.
What is your workout routine these days?
My current workout routine is yoga and light aerobic workouts. I used to use weights and gym equipment before I would travel so much. But I’ve found that being gentle with my body and doing body weight exercises works best for me!
Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?
I’ve always found Angelina Jolie so stunning!
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion to me is a way of expressing yourself! My fashion changes everywhere I go, I dress to my mood and the setting.
Who are some of your favorite models and designers, and why?
A few of my favorite models are Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, and Adriana Lima. I’ve always looked up to the Victoria’s Secret Angels because they’re so naturally beautiful and elegant. Some of my favorite designers are Dior, Chanel, and Prada because they are timeless.
How would you explain your fashion style and what items in your closet can you not be without?
My fashion style is very relaxed! You’ll almost always find me in sweatpants and a crop top or a bikini! Comfort is my first priority even though I love to dress up and wear things that show off my figure.
Tahiti and Mo’orea have been my favorite place so far! But I would love to see the Bahamas next!
What do you like to watch on TV?
I love drama shows and rom coms/comedies. I really like feel good stuff to relax and clear my mind.
What did you study in school?
I went to school for esthetics and then I got my yoga teacher certification.
3 things you can’t live without?
A pillow, lip balm, and a book.
Drink: Dirty martini with Titos and extra olives.
Idea of a perfect Sunday?
Sleeping in, staying in PJs all days, and making a big brunch.
