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!

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!

New Camera – First Pics!

I’m so happy right now! My new camera came in the post and it’s perfect! So easy to use, perfect size and takes really good pics with no need for edit all the time – on top of that it also looks really vintage and I love how it’s so much smaller than the one I’ve been using for so many years now.

So you’ll get to see even more pics on my blog now, as well as Instagram @martefre. Perfect that it came in time before my trip as well! I’m so excited!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s me and Dan in the car right after we went to a shop to figure out why the camera wasn’t working… Turns out the lens wasn’t properly on, haha.

You can already see the quality changing even though I don’t know too much about the camera yet. And also very clearly what I look like after a mindfuck kinda powernap. Woho.

Me Just Being Me

So we had a quick little shoot today, and I finished the last part of my workout video for you guys. In between photos there’s always some that doesn’t turn out great or just of me being silly. So here’s some of that while I edit the others!

Other than that I don’t have that much to say. A terrible thing has happened in Las Vegas and I’ve been reading and updating all day. At the same time I’m stuck thinking about all those other people in war or other areas of the world, where fighting for their lives is all they know and everyday there is so many losing their lives – and there’s so many tragedies that never really affect you because you don’t read about it or you’re just not aware… So I wanna say my thoughts go out to everyone fighting, everyone that has lost someone they love and been affected, and everyone that feels like they have been left out and is all alone. The world is beautiful, but people can be so cruel. I will never understand.

Making Plans For LA

Now I’m sitting here with my coffee and popcorn trying to get some research done for Los Angeles. First time I’m there it will be for two months and those weeks will FLY by, I mean almost two whole years in London is gone already and that’s crazy to me. I don’t even understand it.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about these things, how we don’t even realize or think about how a year just flies by, and another, and another… And then I get stressed out and sad and worried – which is stupid. You can’t control time, but you can control how you spend the time you’re given, and who you spend it with. No one should spend their time worrying or thinking too much about what’s bound to happen anyways, you can’t control the fact that you’re going to die or the fact that the years will go by regardless. I know these things, but some times you can’t help thinking.

So yeah, I will for sure make the best out of those two months (and do my best for all these other days as well!), but that takes planning – so I’m trying to do that for the most of my LA trip. Might be a bit difficult as I’ve never been there, and I can’t plan for the possible opportunities or experiences of course – but it’s better to have some plans rather than nothing!

Here’s some pics from yesterday when I had the best coffee I’ve had in ages! And a nice catch up with my mom like we always have ❤

What Home Looks Like

To me…

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

Some photos from the other day when we went hiking! Got to see the sunset even though it was a bit cloudy. Love this short hike, it’s quite steep so you’ll still get high up even though it only takes about 20 mins up. I remember I used to run up and down 2-3 times in the summer when I lived here. Cardio on top!! Now I’m stronger though…

I LOVE Friday’s in Norway, haha. Everyone has this extremely strong Friday feeling and we all just go to the shop to buy something nice for dinner (usually taco) and then sweets for after, before we go home and watch tv or movies with our family or friends. I love it. And missed it! Sometimes in London I couldn’t tell a Friday from a Monday.

So now we just finished eating homemade pizza and we’re just sitting in the living room with the tv on and dimmed lights. Soon time to go to the shop to buy some snacks (should’ve done that earlier, but takes a bit of time to get back in the Norwegian vibe I guess). Have a nice Friday evening everyone ❤
