Hi there, thanks for stopping by!

I’m Ana Maria Muñoz but friends call me Anamu. I’m an L.A. native (starting at four years old counts, right?) born in Australia to Colombian parents. I was a video girl at the age of 14 (former BSB fans – do click through) and I bake chocolate chip cookies solely for the purpose of eating the dough.

I started this blog in 2009 to document my then Etsy shop of clutch purses made out of vintage scarves. The blog has since evolved into a creative space where I share my photography, play with graphic design, and most important, capture everyday adventures that often feature my partner in crime, Joe.

In 2011 we moved from LA to London for Joe’s work and that’s when I launched my online vintage shop, The Pond Market, and began a new career as a freelance photographer and graphic designer. My background is in event project management and marketing but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to turn two passions into something more – especially when fueled by the amazing travels we’ve been so fortunate to do.

Having left our hearts in London for another work opportunity with Joe’s company in May of 2012, we find ourselves onto new adventures in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. There’s no telling what’s next but I’m glad you’ve come along for the ride.

  1. Dear Anamu,

    I found your blog by accident several weeks ago, and it has since been the place I go for solace and respite from the busy workdays of the week. Your photos are so lovely they are at times edible, and they take me away in the best way. Your writing is sweet and pleasing, as well as authentic, and your taste in subjects (music, art, antiques/vintage, weekends out) is right down my alley.
    Thanks for putting it out there… it is appreciated and enjoyed.


  2. Dear Ana Maria,
    It is such a pretty and interesting blog.
    Thank you for this lovely quiet oasis in the busy blogosphere.


  3. Hi,
    I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and have been enjoying trawling your London posts. I am moving there at the end of this year and I’m really excited.
    I wanted to share this with you though, as a fellow Foster the People fan I thought you might like it. They played a live set on 6music the other day and it was really good.

    • Helen, thanks for the note and for sharing the live set – they sound great acoustic.
      Congrats on your upcoming move to London! I’m glad that my posts are wetting your appetite for this incredible city :)

  4. I discovered this blog a few weeks ago and have been having such a fun time reading it! I was in London for three months this past fall, and I dream about moving there for a year or two. It enjoy living vicariously through your blog and seeing all the places I was too lazy to visit (I barely left London). Your photos are absolutely beautiful — what camera do you use? I look forward to seeing more of your adventures, and thanks for sharing them all with us!

    • Hi Claire,

      Thanks for the note! I’m glad that my jaunts around town are keeping you inspired to come back for more! There is so much to see and do here its ridiculous. As for my camera, it’s a Canon Rebel T2i – I’m still learning all of its tricks but it’s super user friendly nonetheless. I love it.

      Thanks for following the blog. It’s nice to know that it’s not just my family reading it :P

  5. Hi Ana Maria,

    Just curious from LA… what’s the climate like in your area? Is it like 92? Hope all is well. Nice pics from your trip… looks like you guys had fun.

    • Bruce –
      In London? Not even near 92…more like 68. In Madrid though, yes, I’d say we were in the low 90′s…it was perfect vacation weather! Thanks for the note, we did have a good time.

  6. Hey Ana Maria!
    I just discovered your blog and I loved it instantly. Beautiful photography and creative ideas. Very inspirational. Also, I adored London when I was there, hope you are falling in love with all of London’s charm as well :)

  7. Love your blog and the strong statements that you post in form of cool graphic posters. Also, totally admire you for changing your career and moving to London. How do you love it so far? Xo

    • Thanks, Taisa! I have a lot of fun designing the posters. It definitely wasn’t easy to leave a great job and all of my family + friends but living in London has been incredible. Wouldn’t trade the experience for anything – it’s a rad city. Hope you keep on stopping by :)

  8. Thanks to Apt 34 for the referral! I’ll be stopping by here from now on. I’m quite jealous of your big move to SE Asia. It’s one of my most favorite regions of the world!
