I am sorry for my late blogpost, I was supposed to write one on Thursday (as I normally do) but there aren´t enough hours during the day, hehe.
We had a film crew here on Thursday, which meant all hands on deck. Hehe, well. I did lunch and dinner for everyone, so that stole some time away. Otherwise, everything is fine. I´m filming a new Youtube video tomorrow and I am actually looking forward to it. I´m also thinking of doing a 5-minute-Friday video as well, just me talking about a specific topic and wishing you all a good weekend. Well, I´ll see how I get on.
I´m currently watching life after death by a recommendation from one of you guys. I am very intrigued and I can´t wait to watch another episode tonight. If you already seen the series, what do you think? I´m halfway and I can´t stop watching.
I´ve had a wonderful and very relaxed start to the weekend. Well, if relaxing means having a tidy floral studio aaand bedroom, then yes. Heh. I had a very productive day yesterday, and I felt good. Happy! I actually spent the whole evening by myself, just recharging. I did feel a little bit guilty for not joining the others, but I really needed a little timeout. If youré a introvert like me, you will understand I´m sure.
Today have been good as well. I started of with some research and studies for work (meaning watching a lot´s of how-to video´s on various subjects). Love doing this, especially if it can make me work better. Then I actually did a sweaty workout, which felt nice.
The evening is not set in stone yet, but I think I´m going to watch a movie with Stephanie and Philip. Have a lovely evening everyone.
Oh, by the way. Make sure to follow me on Instagram, at @mariewiik1 to see more updates on my everyday life.
How are you? I´ve just had the most loveliest day, and I am so happy. I´m currently in Normandie at Chateau Gonneville sur Honfleur visiting Anna and Philip. They have the most beautiful little Chateau which I´m completley in love with. I´ve been making florals and shooting content all day and we just finished a lovely dinner.

I´ve been wanting to come here for ages and I´m so greatful I finally did. Being here and meeting Anna and Philip + there two daughters have been incredibly heartwarming as well as refreshing. I hope to be back again soon!
Dinner was delish, we had baked cammenbert with rosmary and honey as a starter. For dinner we had roast beef (not for me of course), baked carrots and parsnips with a yummy cabbage salad. Dessert was pure blizz, smooth chocolade mousse. Felt so treated!
Right, I´m off to bed now. I´m shooting more content tomorrow before we make our way back to Lalande.
Hi lovelies. I have re-arranged my studio and taken down the Christmas decorations, well not all of it (big house you know, hehe). I like to start the new year feeling refreshed and ready.
I´ve been feeling very peaceful and happy this week, especially today. I´ve had a lot of p&q after our friends left Lalande (peace and quiet), which may have something to do with it. I love my own company way too much, hehe. This January will be pretty quiet (but busy), I´m dedicated to get a lot of essential work done, like planning the year, producing content for my website and writing contracts for my floral design services. Lot´s to do but I´m enjoying it, which makes me feel proud of myself.
Otherwise I am getting back to my normal and healthy habits again, which means I´ve given up on eating up all the temptations in this house, there is just too much!!. I´m going to try to hid them instead and hope for the best, hah.
Just me popping in on Christmas Eve, or what we call “Juleaften” in Norway. It´s been a busy but good day. I´ve made table garlands for tomorrow´s Christmas dinner and I´ve just finished. We´re having a cocktail party tonight with canapes and I´ve already sampled the vegetarian sushi (It was amazing!!)
All I want to do is to snuggle up in bed and watch something nostalgic on Netflix, but I´m going to enjoy the party and be greatful for where I am. I´ll be honest and say that I´ve been a little sad today. Not being with my family has been a little hard this year, but I´m sure I´ll see them before I know it.
Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
I must say, I like these scheduled days where I know what I´m doing, it gives me so much peace of mind. So, what´s happening? I burned my hand earlier by trying to microwave my oat milk. There is that. Otherwise, everything is pretty peaceful. My hair is growing longer, which pleases me greatly. I´ve been wanting my long and thick hair back for years, now it´s finally growing.!! Although, it may have something to do with the B12 I´m taking (as well as not being silly and cutting it myself).
Things are looking much better in the studio these days, it´s so lovely how moving some furniture around can change the atmosphere in a room. I think it´s so important to feel comfortable and inspired by your surroundings and what better time to make that happened then right now?
This week will be peaceful but fun (It´s so quiet here, but there will be friends coming for Christmas so I´m enjoying this semi quiet time).. I´m doing some more filming for my IGTV-videos for with marie, then I´m filming another video with Stephanie for her advent calendar vlog. I think we´re also having some parties, so all in all, a good few days coming up. Oh, and Cheryl have sent me the first draft of my website, I´m going to review it shortly so that we can get on with the first alterations. So exciting.
