WHAT'S A TYPICAL DAY IN THE LIFE OF MARIE?
I always start my mornings with yoga & coffee before I attempt to carry on with the rest of my day! After that, it’s a lot of time spent on content creation (either for myself or for my online business) and working on my website and keeping a constant lookout for inspiration on all social media platforms.
Doesn’t necessarily come just from looking at others and what they are wearing or what's on the runway (however Victoria Beckham has always been a major style inspiration of mine). It can come from art & architecture as well. There are so many social media bloggers from around the world who also give me quite a lot of inspo!
FAVOURITE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW?
I seriously VIBE on all levels with these accounts
FAVOURITE ONLINE STORES?
GO TO OUTFIT?
A blazer (I own one in almost every colour) with either a singlet or t-shirt underneath, jeans or a slim black pant and an open back loafer or pointed court shoe depending on where I’m going, accessorised always with gold jewellery (rings especially).
I call this my ‘POWER’ outfit because I know it will always come together looking uniformed and I am always comfortable wearing it.
BIGGEST INSPIRATION OR MENTOR?
I’d have to say myself... and so should everyone else! Take a look at how far you’ve come. Whether its within the last year or 5 years and be grateful for that growth! You are all the inspiration you need!
FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION?
I’ve travelled all around Europe and every country has its beauty, but the Greek islands will always have my heart. Not just for it’s visual beauty, but for the feeling and sensation you get in your heart & soul when you’re there!
