I’m so happy to say that this blog has seen a lot growth lately and I’ve been able to connect with more of you wonderful people. It never fails to amaze me how supportive our community is over here. I want to thank each and every one of you for the time you take out of your day to read my posts and for your engagement with them too. It’s very encouraging.

On this note, I’d like to reintroduce myself to any new followers and tell you a bit about what you can expect to see on infinitelyadaydreamer. When I discover a new blogger, one of the first things I do is explore and find their ‘about’ page. It’s at this point I feel like I’ve stepped into their world- no longer a stranger but a friend who knows their little quirks, intricacies and what makes them happy. I’m proud of this little space of mine because it is such a raw, honest representation of me. It is possibly the truest form of who I am and a place where I can be entirely real.

Quick side note in case you’re curious- I post consistently every Monday and Wednesday with Weekly Inspiration and then a normal blog post.

Anyway, hello!

I’m Maryam, the sixteen year old blogger behind infinitelyadaydreamer. I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, but hope to fly the coop for my eighteenth birthday next year. I’m an aspiring Interior Designer, Photographer and morning person.. although If I’m honest, I have more faith in the former two!

I’m passionate about all things creative and love to collage using old Frankie magazines. Other times, you can find me with a book in hand or baking in the kitchen. Blueberry and white chocolate muffins are a favourite of mine. I used to be really good at staying hydrated, but nowadays I’m 70% coffee. Nothing beats a fresh brew!

When I was thirteen, I went on a solo trip to England. To date, it was the most eye opening experience for me. I learnt so much. Well.. it makes a close second at least. A couple of years back, on a class trip, I hiked up Mt Kosciusko and returned an absolute strawberry!

A common misconception about me is that I’m shy, but I beg to differ. I feel quirky and approachable are a better fit for me. I originally started this online space because it seemed like something an adult would do, but stuck with it because writing brings me great and genuine joy. My posts here a cumulation of lifestyle, wellness and real talk content. I don’t believe in defining my niche too much, but rather sharing selectively when I feel called to write. I’m a passionate advocate for mental health and living a balance, fulfilled life. I used to believe that burning the candle at both ends would be my key to success, but now I realise it never was.

That, in a nutshell, is me. I invite you all, new and old followers to check out some posts and leave a small introduction in the comments. I’d love to hear from you personally!

    1. Hello Louise! First, thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment. Can I just say how much I love your profile picture? You’re so pretty! I’m going to head over to your lovely blog and have a read.

      My solo trip was incredibly exciting and a really good way to practice and actually be independent. I was lucky to have help along the way, but I still pulled it off. The plane journey even was a highlight for me. Being up so high in the sky really puts things in perspective. I had a few stopovers.. one in Dubai, I think. Overall my flight time was about 26 hours.

      At Heathrow airport, I met family and they gave me this beautiful bunch of roses. It was my first time seeing everybody and I’ll always treasure those moments. I remember sitting by the heater, trying desperately to stay warm.. your weather in England is crazy! Over here in Australia 20 degrees isn’t even warm. We’ve had up to 50 degrees in summer!

      I’d listen to songs by Yael Naim, a french/ukranian songwriter. My favourites were New Soul and Far Far. Whenever I listen to them, I’m instantly transported to another time and place. I remember banana pancakes and the best crepes for breakfast. I remember dropping my older cousin off at school, then playing with my baby cousin. I have so many photos of people, but none of places. I guess that’s because I missed out on actually going into London! I’m disappointed when I think back to that, haha.

      2. Oh, absolutely! Love your page 😊 Australia is a lovely country but I’m sort of planning my own move! I guess when you’re in the same place so long you end up needing the change.. sometimes a permanent one. Eventually I want to go live in the states.

    1. thank you so much, you’re too kind 💗 glad you enjoyed the post chloe! figured a more in-depth about me post was in order!

      Yes.. Australia! It’s surreal living in so many people’s dream country, knowing that the opera house and harbour bridge are an hour away from me when tourists come from all over the world to see my city. I think I’ve just grown bored.. restless. I’m a bit of a wanderer. More than anything though, I’ve got someone special overseas and am really wanting to meet them!

  3. Ahhh LOVED learning a bit more about you, these types of posts are my favs ❤️
    Australia sounds so cool, I’ve always wanted to visit? Do you have an accent? I’m sure you do if you’ve lived in Australia your whole life but oh wellll 😉 I live in the states and sometimes it seems so boring to just live in the US but I do love it! Reading the comment above mine, I agree with Chloe, ur aesthetic is AMAZING ❤️ It’s so pretty and just really delicate feminine feel, it’s gorgeous! Ooooo a solo trip to England? That sounds lovely, but also terrifying! Enjoyed this post immensely 💕

    1. thank you lovely jasmin! I figured this post was well overdue.

      Australia is alright.. to be honest though, I really really wish I was in your country! planning a trip to the states for my 18th birthday next year 🙌🏼 As for an accent.. I don’t hear it but then ago who does when it’s themselves? Haha! I have a good friend in America and I don’t hear his accent so I guess it’s possible not to have one, especially if you’re multilingual like he is!

      Anyway, you’re so kind! your sweet comment made my day. Hope you’re doing alright 😊

      1. You’re welcome! ❤️
        Ahhh haha! Traveling to the states for your 18th sounds super fun, hopefully it works out! I don’t have an accent either, but I don’t think there really is such a thing as and American accent, I’ve heard we just speak slower than everyone else 😂
        Awww I’m glad, hope ur doing well also 💕
