A typical day in my life includes…

a schedule that always keeps me on the go! I love starting my day early and go to class from 7-11. After class I head to the gym where I catch up with one of my best friends where we honestly do more chatting than actual cardio. I then go to my apartment and cook up something I meal prepped that normally includes some pretty healthy mix up of veggies and proteins. I tend to hang out with my roommates, and we laugh about the current trending Twitter gossip. After I eat and have gotten all my giggles out, I head to Muse Apparel where I work! I get to work with a bunch of girl bosses who are driven, passionate and powerful ladies. I then come back to my apartment and get to hang out with all of my roommates who are also my best friends. On days that I do not work I volunteer with Younglife and hang out and tell the coolest high school friends of mine about Jesus.

I was born…

in probably the best city ever: New Orleans, Louisiana

My favorite thing about Arizona…

WOW, this is hard. AZ is such a state full of so much beauty and fun. I love all things in the sun (if I have AC nearby). I also love that it is so central to the cold weather in Flagstaff, and just a short road trip to the dreamy ocean!

I’m listening to…

more like what am I not listening to? I am a huge music junkie with love for just about every genre. I would probably have to say my favorite is some good coffee house/indie songs.

My family…

is the coolest people you will ever meet. My parents are full of all thing’s faith, southern hospitality and a whole lot of love! My older sister is my built-in best friend, and my younger brother is a normal teenager who finds joy in pranks and lots of silly jokes.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my mom’s mom. Unfortunately, she passed away before I was born, but if she is anything like my mom, she is the coolest person ever and I would to chat about anything and everything!

One thing I cannot live without…

lash extensions! These honestly have changed my life.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

Astronaut or Zoo Keeper…ya, I know.

I’m inspired by…

Hailey Bieber! She is not only an icon by her stylish clothes, but how she brings such class and elegance everywhere she goes. She is always seen with a poise that is positive and graceful. Hailey always is seen bubbly and acts so humble considering her life, let’s be real. She also is very open about her faith and relationship with the Lord which I highly admire in a trending figure.

The one person who motivates me is…

my dad! He is the coolest and most hardworking person I know. Not only does he strive for success and perfection, but he is so good at doing it! He never complains and always has a positive outlook on situations. He encourages me to work hard, do my best, try again, be brave, and love more.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

I might sound crazy, but I wish everything was instantaneous. I just want everything to happen already and am not a fan of the “waiting” process. For example, when I get that In N Out craving, I just want the burger and not the drive to get it. When I want to go to the beach, I just want to get there and not wait in the car!! But with that being said, I love the growth that happens in the waiting and all the beauty that comes along with it!

The perfect day would be…

anything that is consumed with all my favorite people. I do long distance with my boyfriend, so first off, I would love him to be with me. After he is here, a sunny day at Newport Beach with all my people, donuts, and some yummy snacks of course. I love playing all those little beach side games maybe more than going in the actual ocean. I am always a fan of a good nap regardless of the time or place, so that’s a must. A cute and cozy beach side house with a nice BBQ and some games to end the day would be so ideal as well!

My first job was…

the absolute dream. I was a “cabana girl” at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. Let me tell you, High School Musical 3 was my life. Would not trade it for the world!

My favorite escape…

CYCLEBAR. Nothing I love more than going into a spin class and being focused on nothing but just that moment. It encourages me to be a better person not just physically, but all aspects.

My life…

is a roller coaster and it is only going up my friend!

I’m currently working on…

myself, always. Always. Always. I want to be a better human daily. I constantly am striving to love more, be more intentional, step further out of my comfort zone, be brave, practice giving grace, encourage others and never let my people forget how cool they are…also, cute outfits 😉

Always…

trust your gut!

Never…

doubt your instinct!

Favorite Quote…

“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.”- Audrey Hepburn

Biggest Dream…

there are so so many! I would love to own either my own clothing boutique or work in fashion merchandising for an international cooperation. I would love to be doing these things alongside of my sister. We would love to open up a marketing firm down the road as well. I think overall these things; I hope to be happy and successful.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

unintentional people. I think that everyone deserves respect and to feel valued. It takes more effort to be mean than to be kind. Going out of your way to be intentional can really change someone’s whole day, think about it!

More about Maris…

I am a student at Grand Canyon University who grew up in Indonesia, so I love traveling and spending my time on the go alongside of my spontaneous group of friends. I have a love for all things fashion and people. I am a growing influencer in the local Phoenix area that believes in inspiring ladies to be themselves and express themselves in a fun way by living a lifestyle full of love, joy, and being bold. Whether being bold is portrayed in a hip outfit, or stepping out of your comfort zone, I truly believe life is too short to not be bizarre in the way you enjoy life!
