Strolling Through Camberwell Market

i enjoy going to the flea market where you can find unique and vintage stuff. there's something about seeing antiques that give me this feeling like i'm in old movies or as if i got transported back to my grandma's era. here in Camberwell, you can find secondhand clothing (some are branded and hella cheap), vintage accessories,  handmade DIY, unique used housewares and i even found a 1960s typewriter which i was so tempted to buy ( but i didn't :( )

here are few random snaps that i took when i came here a while back with ma girl taiyo;

old pictures of people, creepy or cool?

this 1950's blue earrings stole my heart within five seconds, the best $8 i spent that day. 

i kid you not, the guy on the right was busking with no pants on.

and it was like 50°F (10°C) outside that day. 

if you love collecting old goodies, you should definitely come and check it out.
open only on sunday 6.30 am - 12 pm so move your lazy ass and find yourself a little treasure hehe ;)

it's been a while since my last life update post. i feel like i am sooo behind that i don't know where to begin. life has been rolling faster than i expected and i couldn't really find time to focus on this little space until now. i swear the older we get the little time we have.

i flew to this country where-i-will-settle-next.  empty seats in my row, pretty much the best thing you can hope for in commercial flight. 

train situation: when i saw that everyone's eyes were glued to the screen, i can't help but wonder if people ever look up nowadays. (?)

mango dessert just because. 

my birthday is definitely the recent highlight in my life. beautiful 'bouquet' delivery, lovely lunch, a walk-in flower dome, and finished up with watching beauty and the beast, all my favorites in one day! *died from sweetness indulgence* 

all thanks to this amazing man who put so much effort to learn my love language <3

a year+ ago, i quit my nine-to-five job to pursue what i like. it means less income, a happier soul. tough but still the best decision ever.

more artwork on my instagram @marisawij , follow if you want :)

painting abstract art gives me the absolute freedom to be myself and explore endless techniques but illustration grounds me and keeps me calm :)

below: personal bridesmaid cards i made for the two special girls <3

others bits and bops :

so,  how have you been? share with me in the comment!

monday morning routine (VSCO EDIT) / studio day 2017

"do what you love, and you'll never a problem with monday

i usually start my monday earlier than any other day because i need to plan my whole week ahead. showering is not always necessary (most of the time, i shower when i'm about to go out and at night before i go to bed) but dental hygiene and skincare routine are very important to me. i like to sit by the window and sip my coffee whilst checking my emails/socmed and pinning down the weekly to-do-list before heading off to the studio and start working. my go-to breakfast normally are fruits or smoothies because they're quick and easy to make (oh and also healthy!) i work better with sound in the background, so I'm always playing some music, movie or podcast while working in the studio. for lunch break, it's either i cook, order takeaways, or eat out with my friends! 

how is your monday looks like? :) x
