Le fleur

Hello from Hunfleur

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.

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
