Behind the scenes + 2 years anniversary

Processed with VSCO with fp4 preset

I like to show you a little bit of my mess. It´s part of what I do and how I work. I´ll never be shiny and spotless. I´ll never just show you the sunny side. I hope that’s okay?

A very lovely lady (who I adore) told me I shouldn’t have shown people the toilet rolls on my Instagram stories today. But I disagree, I want to show you what’s real. I want to show you what I´m up to and how it´s like to work with flowers. I love the mess, it´s part of the creative process. I also show you the real mess because there is so many who doesn’t. Social media is filled with perfect pictures, perfect lives, perfect everything. I don´t know about you but I can get pretty tired of looking at all things perfect. It can seem so unachievable and uninspiring. When I decided to get serious about posting on social media I wanted to be part of making a change. A change in how we present ourselves. I think it´s time to show all aspects of life. I believe in sharing what can be inspiring, but there needs to be a little balance too.

Oh, by the way!! My blog (www.mariewiik.com) turned 2 years this June. I started my blog while I was working 14 hours shifts up in Lofoten. I wanted a place to write and express my thoughts and creativity. I also needed to get out a lot of emotions (thank god you cant read Norwegian). Its was free space for me to just be, me. I hope there will be plenty of years to celebrate in the future. Thank you for clicking in and reading. Thank you for taking the time to write comments. Thank you for following.

Anyhow. Behind those pretty and shiny photos, there is always a messy floor (unless youré my grandmother). Hehe!

Right, it´s 02.31am and I should get to bed. I have started a bad habit of staying up late, but I also work better. I´m more focused.

Hope you have a lovely day xx

Goddess training again

Processed with VSCO with fp4 preset

I absolutely love these colours, the texture and the dropey look. It´s very me and very feminine.

Anyways. How are you? We had a bbq last night which was really lovely. I had 3 beers and I think my head is punishing me for it today. I can´t say that the sanding downstairs helps much either. They are doing the dining room floorboards today which is right below my bedroom. Hah. Oh well, it will look good in the end. I´m doing my floral video during lunch hour today, which will be great. Got more peonies to play with this time (coral ones), so I´m a little bit excited.

Otherwise, everything is fine. Just fine. I´m doing my best to run 2-3 times per week. I only go in the evenings when it´s a bit cooler. Somehow the pollen doesn’t seem so intruding then. I´m also doing a life “assessment” with myself. If you´ve been reading my blog for over a year, you will know that I did a Goddess workshop at Lalande with Stephanie, Gillian and Donna a year ago. If you want to read it you can click here. If you feel like you need some goddess training too, you can find the links to the spreadsheets that we used. I´m actually going to do it again, just to see how far I have come with myself, my dreams and my goals. Let me know if you try it too.

Hope you have a lovely weekend

Love, Marie
