My name is Maria - I'm an 20 year old living in Brisbane, Australia.
I'm a music, book, makeup and clothing nerd. So basically, we can talk about anything and I'll be interested. I go to uni and to be quite honest, I'm still figuring out what I want to do with the rest of my life but I know I'd like to travel a lot, get married and make some babies, take lots of beautiful pictures and fill my life with as much magic and creativity as possible. Currently, I work part time as a barista and enjoy having coffee with my friends, roaming around the city, seeing films (both Hollywood and Art house), exploring markets, museums and galleries.

Avenue Maria started in 2010 and blossomed into a creative online journal showcasing what I like to wear, what I like to read, how I think and my evolution from girl-hood to woman-hood.
