Meet Marie~


Hello! I’m so thrilled that you discovered ZENGMARIE and I’m very excited to welcome you to my little slice of the Internet❤️

I am Marie, a 27 year old expat from Moscow, Russia currently living in Antwerp, Belgium. I’m an online biohacking consultant by day and blogger by night, and I truly love what I do.

I’ve never thought I’d be here and by here I mean where I’m at today. I moved to Belgium with my dog, huge suitcase and no visa to reunite with my husband in September 2018. I have always wanted to try this mystical “European lifestyle”, and I’m currently getting to know what is it about.

In the winter of 2017, I created ZENGMARIE, a lifestyle destination that inspires my worldwide audience to live an adventurous life and celebrate the diversity that our planet has to offer. However, in the very beginning my blog was mostly about my mental health. You see, I suffered from a severe burnout back then, and I used this page to let my inner demons out through my creativity. I can’t say that I’ve fully recovered (in fact, I don’t believe in living a 100% ‘normal’ life after a burnout), but things are definitely going much better^^
