Our permanent apartment won’t be ready until next Saturday, and as we couldn’t stay in the current Airbnb until then, we had to book another one for the four days before Saturday. That means moving again, packing up all the clothes and even food we’ve bought this time – which is annoying, especially since I’ve started work as well, but it’s all gonna be worth it on Saturday! So far it’s all going very good, I just really can’t wait until we’re properly settled into our new home.
I was off this weekend, and it was so nice getting that Friday feeling again – being able to sleep in and just experience more of Sydney. We actually went to Manly to eat and have some cocktails, before we went back home to change and go out in central. If you like Hip Hop or R&B I recommend going to The Cliff Dive. I have been there twice now and both times it’s been good music and just good vibes. If you want to sit and have a table you would probably have to come early, but it’s a place for mostly dancing so if that’s your type of nights out you’ll be fine.
Today has been a more chill day, pizza and sleeping in – but we actually felt so good despite going out we decided to go to the gym as well. The nicest thing without a doubt is the jacuzzi after, it’s going to be so sad to leave behind.
I also contacted a few modeling agencies today, so hopefully I’ll be able to get in touch with someone this week. It’s not always the easiest thing finding the right modeling agency as there’s so many different ones, but the main thing is always finding someone who understands you and what you want to do.
This is a photo taken from the ferry the other day, I love how you basically can take boats how you take trains to go places here. I also need to tell you about my birthday last week in a different post, so stay tuned! I hope everyone has (or had) a nice Sunday, wherever you are in the world.
Yesterday we finally booked a place to stay for the beginning of our Sydney journey, and I couldn’t be more happy! I’m soooo excited and it all feels a lot more real now. It’s getting closer and closer to the leaving date, and soon I’ll be going home to spend some time with my mom – before I come back to Oslo and start the looong trip to Sydney with Dan. Then we finally meet Caitlin and our adventure begins. It’s going to be amazing!
I wanted to show you guys some of the pictures from the place we have chosen – we’re so happy with it and all the hard work in Oslo has definitely paid off ❤
Snaps from today. I work with Lava Art and did another look for them today! Always fun and I do really like working and being more creative with makeup, but the best part is when I’ve filmed and taken my pics – then taking off the lashes and everything else before I put moisturiser on a fresh and clean face.
My almost monthly cold (what it feels like) is back and I’m just praying to get better before I got to Berlin this week!! To see my unbiological sisters 😉 It’s so cool how they decided to move there, and I’m so excited to experience Berlin for the first time!
Australia is also coming up… In almost just a month! It’s going to be my new home?! How crazy… Will probably write more about the process and everything that comes with it if you are interested. No job or apartment has been found yet, but I’m getting pretty used to just going with the flow.
A different post, more of a little update – but to be honest I’m sitting here in bed ready to make some green tea and finish editing some videos before I try and get my sleep so I can feel better!! I just wanted to check in and write a little something. I do want to know if you would want me to do a video though, I could do a makeup video showing my favourite look for you guys if interested ❤ Let me know!
Also if you’re a true crime freak like me, start listening to true crime podcasts! So far I’ve listened to Dirty John and Dr. Death that I would recommend! Please let me know if you know any really good ones.
purple, blue, orange, red
these colors of feeling, give me love, I’ll put my heart in it
I think about it all the time
the lights went out, you were fine
you kinda struggle not to shine

I love bright colours. I love mixing them as well, as long as everything is “clean”, like here. Plain background and a one-coloured jacket. It was freezing cold while taking them by the way, my home town is known for it’s wind and it’s no joke.
I have big plans for these upcoming months and soon everything’s in place! Or most of it at least. Some things you can’t control, you can only do your best. So that’s what I’m gonna do! One of the things that’s for sure is that we’re moving… to Oslo! Dan and I will be there for a little while, just working and going on a new adventure to be honest. I’m excited ❤
Thank you so much for all the love after my previous post ❤ It’s amazing, and I hope some of you got inspired and realized how important it is to work on yourself and the love you have for yourself – because if you dont have that you’ll never be happy no matter what you look like.
So in two weeks I will actually be back home in Norway at this time! That’s crazy! I can’t believe my time here is almost up already… I’m so happy about what I’ve made happen with such a short amount of time though, not even two months. And I can’t wait to come back here! I’ve figured out the answer to the question which was part of the reason why I came here – and that was if this is the place I need to be in my life right now – and yeah, looks like this is where I should be.
When I get back I will only be home for about a week, and then I will go to Gran Canaria. My mom and I has this tradition that we always go somewhere together once a year for a girls trip and to spend time together, which we’ll always keep doing ❤ It’s been a while since our last time, so I think it’s gonna be really good.
Right now I’m making the most out of my last weeks here, and then I’m so excited to come home and see Dan who’s back home working right now! Before this the longest we had been apart was actually only two weeks, and that is literally from the second we first met – ever, haha. Crazy!
Dear little Marte,
I know how you love your little family,
Your Grandpa and your Grandma,
I know you don’t know yet that you will lose them,
I know that you still don’t understand the heartbreak and hurt it will bring you,
I know you don’t understand the things you wished you would have told them,
Not until later,
When your Grandma passes away,
Do you realize how empty it will be,
To a place that will never be home again,
And then having to loose your Grandpa,
Not just once,
But twice he will leave,
First his memories of you and everyone,
Then his words,
Then one day all of him,
It will make you think of life differently,
It will make you question everything that matters,
But it will forever teach you about real love,
Between two people,
Who just couldn’t be alone,
If not together
