Tell us a bit about yourself….
Hi, my name is Mikela Anderson. I am 21 years old. Born and raised in Jersey, a small island between the Uk and France.
I’m a mother to my 19 month old son Isaac and live with my fiancée of three years Ben.
I studied photography at A Levels and went on to be accepted into Falmouth University to study Fashion Photography, but after a term decided it wasn’t the right place for me at the time and I returned to jersey to try to find the right path for myself, in all honesty at the time I couldn’t cope well with being away from home for so long which shocked me a lot as I didn’t think I was that way inclined, but uni can make you learn a lot about yourself. A few months later I found out I was pregnant and that was it, our lives got flipped upside down, Isaac was born 14th November 2013 and life has been going at a hundred miles per hour ever since. Which brings us to present time. Currently I’m just going with the flow and trying to find my way in life and what I want to do or be, but that’s hard right? does anyone really know? I just want to be myself so until I find something that fits with me and my life perfectly I’m just going to keep doing my thing.
What is a regular day like for you?
A normal day for me is spending my time being a full-time mum, we play, visit friends, go to playgroups and just enjoy each others company. I recently started working evenings 3/4 times a week in a bar and don’t finish till half 10 at night so my days are long, but I enjoy having the time with Isaac now while he is small so its better that way.
Where do you like to eat out?
We don’t eat out a lot I much prefer a takeaway and movie night, but if I get to pick its Pizza Express hands down.
Where did you last go away?
My last trip away was to Palma Nova in Spain for a week with Isaac and friends.
How do you like to relax?
I enjoy just sitting with my feet up, some chocolate and my iPad. Free to browse as much IG, Pintrest, Blogs and Fashion sites as I can.
Whats in your handbag?
My handbag contains : My Iphone, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour balm, House keys, Purse, Sunglasses, Tissues.
Do you have a favourite shop at the moment?
I don’t have a favourite shop right now but Asos, Missguided, Public Desire, Pretty little things are some of the shops I have currently been browsing.
What is your proudest achievement?
Isaac is by far my proudest achievement and always will be.
Who or what inspires you the most?
The people around me inspire me the most, motivating me and just being there for me gives me energy and confidence to keep creative and positive. Also there are many people on IG I have come across that really inspire me with my photography and after putting my camera down two years ago I now use it more than ever.
What is the last thing you purchased for Isaac?
I Bought Isaac a pair of jelly shoes after persuading Ben there not as jivey as he thinks! Turns out I was right they look so cute.
Do you have a nickname?
I have accumulated a few nick names of the years but Kel (given by my sister) has always stuck.
Do you have some favourite instagrammers?
I have so many favourites on Instagram there’s to many to pick from but here’s a few:
