Some photos from yesterday! I had such a nice day, and then a lot of fun going out with new friends. I’m really happy that I’ve only been here for less than a week, but still having met so many cool people.

Today I’ve had a super typical Sunday with Netflix and food from my fave place right next to me – Rise N Grind. Perfect day! It was actually so hot today, and the next days as well – over 30 degrees! I know it’s supposed to be like 40 later this week which is insane to me, wow. I’m so happy I found out that we have a pool here in the apartment building as well, so I know where to chill out when it’s hot!

Now I’m drinking green tea and sitting in the living room with Friends on the tv. I’m getting the vlog ready for you guys this week, and then I’m exciting to do “A Day In The Life” vlog soon. I have an important day tomorrow so I’ll go to bed early tonight and then go gym tomorrow morning before my meetings just to make it a good start. Wish me luck ❤

Needed some new, natural pictures yesterday, so we took some in the sunset. You can quite clearly see my hair colour now for those of you that haven’t as it doesn’t always show as much on pictures. Black in the roots and naturally lighter from the sun in the ends. I keep it that way by always just dying the roots and getting the hairdresser to just drag the colour a bit down so it mixes in naturally with the lighter parts.

I love my new camera by the way, I’m guessing you can see how much better the pictures turn out as well!

Tonight I’m going out again, 1 Oak, but this time I’m gonna meet up with Emma and some of her friends to drink some wine and chill out before that! Girlsnight ❤

And now I actually have a pt session, which I wasn’t too sure about because I’m so damn sore, but I’ll go anyways!

It’s been so long since I’ve done this, but it’s such a good workout! Met up with Emma yesterday like I said and had an intense workout before we went to eat. I got to see a new area as well, which is cool! If you want to follow me even more on my journey here and see more personal and everyday things you can add me on snapchat: martefre.

Here you can see the amazing acai bowls as well! I’ve had one earlier when I just got here, but this one was soooo much better! We had it at Rawberri in Santa Monica, and I will for sure be going back there.

This is what happens when you go out but don’t drink too much, haha. Had such a nice day and I know I would’ve just been laying in bed if I didn’t keep to just a few drinks. For sure so much better like this!

Out Here In LA – I Got Meetings With Agencies!

These are actually photos that I got a random stranger to take today. When you out here by yourself you gotta do what you gotta do. Especially when you kinda need new pics everyday. Luckily I’ve already planned to go different places and take more pics with friends later on! I have been invited to some agencies now to see if we would be a good match, so I’m excited. I’ll fill you in on the details and what I find out later of course.

So yeah, last night we went to 1 Oak. It was a cool place, good music and good vibes. I’m not drinking a lot when I’m here, which some might think is weird, but I need to focus on what I’m doing and what’s really important to me. Of course going out is a huge part of it, but getting wasted every night isn’t gonna get me anywhere. I met some cool people last night for sure! I only had a few drinks, but still didn’t get back until around 5 in the morning. So the only thing I’m feeling today is a bit sleepy, but I got up at 10am and I’m gonna be meeting up with Emma soon to to a little workout running in stairs and going somewhere they apparently have really good acai bowls. Ouuh. I’ll document it for you guys as well of course, hehe.

Let me know if you have any questions about anything by the way, I’ll answer! Also I have started to edit the vlog from my journey here so you’ll “understand” more of what went wrong and almost got me sent home and refused entry!

Clubs, Modeling, Friends – in LA

Local time LA: 13:26 pm

Hiiiii guys! Right now I am DEAD, I had two gym sessions this morning. I was supposed to have a pt session first but they didn’t show up so I went by myself. Then I went to meet Emma, a Norwegian girl that I actually haven’t met before, but we’re from the same place – so it’s really cool being able to meet her here! We met at a different gym and had a session together, so that’s the reason for my tiredness right now. 

Other than that I’m going out for the first time tonight, and from what I’ve heard I think I’ll like it. It’s the same thing with promoters and that, but obviously I’ve yet to experience it in LA. I’ll take photos tonight and tell you guys more tomorrow!

You guys might know that I’ll visit some agencies while I’m here as well, I’m trying to do more commercial now – and as LA for sure is the place for that there’s also a crazy amount of models here. Or at least everyone decides that they are. But I’m excited to get some more experience in the industy here, and it would be cool to come back to an agency here sometime down the road. 

I’ll take more pictures for you guys as well, don’t worry! I’ve just been filming the last part of the vlog and just kinda finished my “settling in” part. So stay tuned!

I Was Almost Put On A Plane Back Home

Local time LA: 11:05 am

The absolute craziest thing happened and I literally had the worst and best luck in the world at the same time. I was even told that I most likely would be put on a plane back home and never be able to return to America…

I have vlogged my whole journey as you can see in some of the screenshots above, and I will tell you more of the story then. 

As of right now I just had breakfast at a place in Hollywood boulevard, and can’t wait to go out in the sunshine and experience a lot more. Also I can’t wait to tell you guys about how I’m finding it and take cool pics! Just need to settle in a little bit first ❤
