Hi, I'm Marie, and I am a fourteen year old pizza and cat lover and fashion fanatic. Strawberries & Silk is a blog about travel, lifestyle, fashion and food. It is designed to influence and inspire you to be confident in your own skin.

I was born in Germany, but I grew up in Sydney, Australia, where I met a lot of my close friends. I now live in Amsterdam, the city of bikes, but I go to school in the United Kingdom (confusing, I know)! Having lived in so many places has had so many amazing influences. I have friends from all over the world, and it is so great to be able to catch up with them when I am travelling to a country that I have lived before! 

I have always enjoyed travelling. Enriching yourself with the culture, tasting new foods, discovering new places... the list is endless. Why I love fashion? Fashion is an art of expressing yourself without having to speak, and being quite a shy person, this plays a huge advantage in my life. One of my most favourite fashion quotes is- " I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect, they are much more interesting"- Marc Jacobs.
