So what’s new?
Currently working our asses off looking for apartments, found the perfect one but didn’t end up getting it, going through job interviews (well one for me so far), and honestly more set than ever on working even harder with my independent work so that I one day soon can do what I love for a living. Also stuck with a cold and I end up sneezing about twenty times every minute. Jet lag is gone though.
If anyone tells you it’s easy moving to the other side of the world they must be lying – or they’re just rich.
I always talk about how much I love traveling, and also how anyone who has a dream to just move somewhere completely new should “just do it” – and I still mean it. I just don’t want you guys to thinks it’s the easiest thing – you can get lucky, but it’s still a lot of work. Especially if it’s not just you. I have a feeling most people think it’s harder to move somewhere completely new and foreign all by yourself, rather than with others, but I feel like it’s the other way around. I think you just have to jump right in regardless, you’ll always figure it out. It truly is worth it.
So yeah – I’m currently tired and happy, and even more excited to get properly settled in, see more of Sydney and just experience life here ❤
Time to get back to work, I’m so ready for this new adventure!
Looking at these pictures realising how much I need a denim crop top right now! I love denim material, especially in this colour – and now that it’s as much as 37 degrees here some days I will probably be needing something with a bit less material.
How do you feel about denim outfits? x
Finally we are here! It was such a long journey to get here but so worth it. I can’t say we have seen too much yet, but there’s a lot that reminds me of LA – only cleaner and less crazy, haha. We have already seen one apartment, and are looking at more tomorrow, sorted out SIM card and bank account – so I would say we’ve gotten a lot done for just one day. It’s always quite a few things that needs to be sorted out when you move somewhere new, so the best thing is always to start as soon as possible. The jet lag is still a bit of a struggle, but that’s just how it is. I’ll update more very soon 💕
Like I have told you guys briefly before I also do makeup videos as a little side job, and with that it means I also do a lot of different looks – some of them not very typical of what I normally would do for makeup, but that’s what I think is fun! To try out different colours, looks and products.
This look is one of the latest I’ve done, it’s quite dark with purple tones – I always use eyeshadow over lipstick or lipgloss if I’m going for a bit of a different colour. I find it a lot easier (and cheaper) because I don’t want to purchase lipsticks in every colour to only use very rarely.
Other than that we are going to Sydney NEXT Sunday! In a week! I’m so excited. Right now I am in my hometown with my mom, just planning, sorting out things for the move – but most of all just spending some quality time and relaxing ❤
“i can still see our construction hats lying
exactly where we left them
pylons unsure of what to guard
bulldozers gazing out for our return
the planks of wood stiff in their boxes
yearning to be nailed up
but neither of us goes back
to tell them it is over
the bricks will grow tired of waiting and crumble
the cranes will droop their necks in sorrow
the shovels will rust
do you think flowers will grow here
when you and i are off
building something new
with someone else”
– the construction site of our future
