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
