    ´╗┐Anna Heinrich tells of life with The Bachelor and all that marriage pressure Anna Heinrich found fame when she stole the heart of Tim Robards in the first season of TV's The BachelorAustralia in 2013. Fast forward three years and the couple are still going strong and have since become one of Australia's most recognised couples. When Heinrich, 29, isn't attending A list events sheworks part time as a criminal lawyer and is the blogger behindLove Always Anna. She tellsKateWaterhouseabout howThe Bachelorhas changed her life, the pressures on her relationship and how she copes with media attention. What is a day in your life?It really depends on the day I'm still working as a [criminal] lawyer. I'm in there every week, and my boss has been so good to me for the past three or four years. I like keeping my foot in that door. I've [also] been working with Nike nike j crew for about almost eight months now. When I first started, I did their Training Club Tour, abig all women event I'm also working with Pandora and Oral B andI'm busy working on my blog. Should we expect a marriage proposal anytime soon?I'm definitely not engaged at the moment [laughs] but I think it will come. There has been that pressure ever since we got together. Does being in the media spotlight put pressure on your relationship?It does, but I'm not going to let it affect our relationship. We know it's always going to be there, but I thinkwhat's really good about us is we haven't just gotten married for everybody else. We're doing it in our own time and when it happens, it's as real as anyone else's marriage. After the show and when you officially began dating, there was speculation of the authenticity of your relationship. Have those rumours been put to rest now?Yes, there are rumours about us probably every couple of weeks either that we've broken up or there is some problem. Butwhenever it is, it's always other people; I think they just find that an interesting story. The Bachelor is currently airing its fourth season. It's very different from what people see on TV . You do an hour or two hour interview and they may not even use that interview, or if they do, it's basically one line. So be prepared, and go in it for the right reasons. Initially I wanted it to be a lifestyle blog [but] I'm now focusing more on fashion and beauty. What do you love about having a blog?It has been a great way for me to share more positive and personal insights into my life. I was surprised how quickly it connected with my readers and I love receiving their comments about my recipes, travels and tips. I've started focusing more on fashion and styling to make it a place where readers can come to for inspiration. It is a case of "watch this space", I guess! What is your role within your law firm?I'm pretty much everything. I'm a lawyer, I'm the bookkeeper, I'm admin. I do it all when I'm in there. I do go into court in certain trials. Do people recognise you from The Bachelor during court trials?There has been [an] occasion where I was in court and nike shoes dropshippers I turned around and this woman was being like"I love you" to me and I didn't know if it was me or who she was looking at. I kept turning around and then I was like, "me?" and she is like,"I love you". I was like, "This is the most awkward situation I've had in the court." I do my best to kind of keep both separate my legal career and my media career. There is no way they're not going to overlap, but I try and keep nike shoes kobe it as separate. So I've got to make sure I uphold a good image and that doesn't jeopardise my legal career because I'm still doing it. Where do you see yourself in five years' time?I hope that I'm still doing what I'm doing. I love having this balance of still doing law and also my media career. What do you do in your spare time, when you're not working?We love to travel, if we can go away for a weekend, whether it is within Australia or somewhere international. We love to even go to Bali for like three days. We're both into sports. So we'll be out training playing tennis with the family. I'll be hanging with my family a lot. Go over to my mum's house for "Jude's food";get everyone over for dinner.
