1. Tell us a little about yourself: What is your name? Where are you from? What do you do besides blogging on Instagram?
My name is Maria & I’m from Norway. I’m an ex nurse who used to work at the biggest hospital in Norway. Now I’m a full time mum whilst I work with social media as well.
2. When did you decide to become a model and why?
I’m not a model. But during lockdown 2020 I started posting pictures in shiny clothes and gained a following because of it.
3. Who helps you in photo shoots and who are you inspired by?
I take most pics & vids myself (tripod). But if I’m out and about my kids are happy to take a picture/video of me in my more normal clothes with maybe a hint of shiny.
If I’m head to toe in shiny clothes I take my own pictures.
I get all my inspiration from Instagram.
4. What do you like to do in your free time?
I have very little free time. But normally I’m a gym girl (although had a long break as of lately). I also try to catch up with friends, I like to do a bit of shopping & I try to date every now and then.
5. What do you dream about?
I honestly dream about having my health & for my kids to have their health so we can continue to enjoy life together as a little family. An added bonus dream would be for life & travel to go back to normal.
I miss life before covid.
6. What are your favourite books (movies, dishes)?
My favourite movie is law abiding citizen with Gerrard butler. 🎥
My fave books are by a Norwegian crime writer called Jo Nesbø. His books are amazing.📘
My fave dish is pad Thai. I love Thai food. 🥗
Which Instagram accounts inspire you?
I’m definitely inspired by many accounts on here. But if I was you mention one shiny account it would be the lovely Valerie.
What helps you save time?
I think planning things well saves time.
What is your favourite kind of chill? Why?
My fave chill is Netflix, sweets and comfy clothes. Nothing beats it. Maybe add cuddles with someone special. That would make it perfect 😂
Which country was visited last?
I was in Turkey last. October 2020 that was.
Which country are you going to visit in the near future?
I’m hoping to visit Gran Canaria so I can go see my parents. Haven’t seen them in 2,5 years because of covid 🥺
What’s on your playlist right now?
My play list would be all popular music atm. I listen to capital radio in the car for hours and hours every day.
Heels or sneakers?
Sneakers no doubt. I’m totally a casual kind of girl.
But of course I like to dress up & wear heels every now and then.
