Watch life after death

Hi everyone!

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.

Right, time to get a snack bowl and get comfy.

Have a good night x

On Instagram

Hello lovelies, happy Saturday

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.

Merry Christmas

Hello lovelies.

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.

Love, Marie xx

4 months in France

Hello lovelies! It´s time for a new blog post. If you follow me on Instagram (mariewiik1), you will know that I have decided to get back to blogging again. Yay!.. So, every Thursday I´ll write a blog post. I hope to write more in the future, but I´ll start easy and see how I go.

Anyway, how are you? Some people say that blogging belongs to the past, but I must disagree. I really love reading blogs and I have a few favourites that I visit almost every day. Mabey it´s a generation thing. I really like following other people´s life´s and getting a special insight in what they are up to and what their life is like. I´ve been following a few Scandinavian bloggers for almost 10 years and some of us are at the same age and I really like that.

Well, enough about that. I´m currently sitting in my studio and I look like an eskimo. I have blankets, scarfs and a warm hat on. The oil heater is on and I´ve lit a scented candle. I really love my studio space and I don´t mind the cold. I feel so free and peaceful here. I can´t believe I´ve been at Lalande for 4 months already. Time goes by so fast.

Workwise, everything is going in the right direction, slowly but steady. I´m constantly learning new skills while I continue to create florals, videos and taking photos. Everything I earn goes back to investing in equipment or flowers. There is hardly any money for my personal life, but hay, we´re in a lockdown, hehe. Becoming self-employed this year have been such an emotional rollercoaster but I wouldn´t want it any other way. I am so happy I quit my job and came to France.

Right, I´m going to film and upload another video for @withmariewiik and I´m also cooking tonight. I think I´m making chili or pita. Not sure yet. Anyho, have a lovely weekend xx
