Må og må… Men jeg kom nylig over disse bildene igjen, fra da jeg var i Los Angeles. Det var noen utrolig spennende, lærerike og morsomme måneder – uten tvil. Det fine er at jeg fortsatt holder kontakten med noen av de jeg bodde med der, og jeg tenker at så snart jeg får muligheten vil jeg ta meg en tur. Akkurat nå er selvfølgelig prioriteringene helt annerledes, men det er uten tvil en reise jeg vil gjøre.
Det er litt morsomt å tenke tilbake på førsteinntrykk og hvordan andre ser deg i begynnelsen når man først møtes. Nå har jeg jo møtt en god del forskjellige folk i litt rare situasjoner, som da jeg dro til LA og bodde i modelleilighet. Jeg husker så godt da jeg først møtte en av jentene og hun ga meg seriøst den “kaldeste” hilsningen jeg har opplevd. Jeg følte meg virkelig ikke velkommen, men samtidig er jeg ganske forståelsesfull, og jeg kjenner meg selv godt nok til å vite at det ikke handlet om meg, men om henne. Så snart hun ble kjent med meg endret det seg jo helt, og vi fikk så mange utrolig fine minner sammen, i tillegg til at jeg ble en hun virkelig stolte på. Jeg er så vant til at mennesker har et helt annet inntrykk av meg, så jeg blir aldri spesielt lei meg eller føler meg ille hvis jeg ikke får den reaksjonen jeg gjerne vil ha i første stund, jeg velger alltid å gi mennesker tid. Selvfølgelig sier jeg ifra hvis noen behandler meg som dritt, men jeg er veldig glad for at jeg ikke lar andres oppførsel ødelegge for meg og tankene om meg selv.
Det er vinter her i Australia og vi kjenner kulden skikkelig her inne i leiligheten. Ikke digg. Det er så vanskelig å komme seg opp for å være produktiv når temperaturen er slik, men jeg prøver. Snart håper jeg også at all planlegging angående Oslo er i boks, så kan livet føles litt mer organisert ❤

Noen bilder fra den kuleste leiligheten jeg har vært i, dere har vel kanskje sett mer av den på andre bilder? Man tenker kanskje at de store, dyre, luksuriøse husene er de som setter mest inntrykk etter å ha vært i Los Angeles, men det var så utrolig kult hva dama som bodde her hadde gjort med leiligheten sin. Hun hadde gjort det om til et så og si levende dukkehus, med så mye kule ting, maling, bamser og masse interiør som var vintage og helt annerledes enn noe jeg har sett før. I tillegg leier hun det ut for photoshoots! Jeg synes det var så kult å se.
A few pictures from the coolest apartment I’ve been in, maybe you’ve seen more of it on other pictures? You might think that the big, expensive houses are the ones that leaves an impression after being in Los Angeles, but it was so cool what the woman had done with her apartment. She had basically made it into a real life dollhouse, with so much cool stuff, painting, and lots of vintage interior. On top of that she’s renting it out for photoshoots!
Happy New Year everyone! Here’s some pictures from one of my photoshoots in LA. Loved the outfits and the vibe on this shoot. You’ll get to see more really soon!
I’ve actually just finished packing, because tonight at 4am we’re going to the airport and leaving the heat and sunshine to go back home. I’m actually excited to go to the airport because there’s a Starbucks there, and as some of you know I don’t drink cow’s milk so it’s been a struggle getting coffee here – but finally!! Lol. And of course to actually get back home and see Dan and my friends again ❤ Excited to make new plans for this year as well! Got a lot to figure out.
This trip has gone by really quick and I wish we had weather like these last days in the beginning as well, but it’s still been an amazing time!
I know there’s a lot of girls that come here to meet celebrities, or sleep with one of them, or just be at the afterparties so they can tell all of this to their friends when they get back home. There’s no lie – you will meet a lot of successful and rich people, celebs and all that if you go to the “hottest” clubs and hang out with the “right” people. It’s honestly the easiest thing here. And no – I don’t have anything against people who do all of this just to be able to tell others about it, I even know people like this, but it is just so far away from who I am and what I’m here to do. I just don’t understand the mindset.
I will never be a fangirl, if I can put it like that, but I always admire and respect success if it’s done the right way.
So no, I won’t tell you about the celebs I’ve met, the rich people, the afterparties, not in that way – but maybe one day I’ll spill all the secrets and let you know how this whole thing is in reality, if you didn’t already know. I’m here to focus on my thing, and get as far as I can. Contacts are so important out here – but just because he is famous and wants to sleep with you does not mean you will get very far. Except if your goal and thoughts on getting far is to brag about it back home, that’s your business, but not the goals I think you should set for your self.
When did some people start to think that it’s an achievement to come to someone and brag about kissing a guy who’s been in a movie or hanging out at an afterparty with someone who only wanted one thing from you but has a lot of followers so it’s super awesome? I would however love to hear you talk about what you have done for your self and future from being around those successful and/or famous people because that’s what interesting to me. Did you get respect? Did you gain anything for your self?
So yeah, there are huge opportunities here – but you just need to figure out yourself first. Maybe you have a completely different mindset and think celebs or famous people are more worth than you or anyone you know, but I hope you don’t and rather see the success and inspiration – if it’s there, that is.
Looking so innocent and classy 🙂 Two pics from the quick photoshoot I had for a brand’s Instagram the other day.
I have a lot of thoughts right now and I want to write a lot these days, I just have to sit down alone and get in my zone. I am so grateful for the sudden response I got from my previous blogpost here, and I’m so grateful for being able to talk to people via email, Facebook and even Instagram. I hope everyone know they can reach out!
Other than that I had a nice Friday night here in LA, hanging out and eating sushi with friends. I’m so incredibly tired right now though, after not going to sleep until 6.30(!!) this morning. Not because of going out, but neither me or my roommate Katie could fall asleep. And me being me wanting to get things done I still woke up at a decent time today, so I desperately need my sleep right now. Good night from me ❤

Good morning from me ❤ I’m drinking coffee and getting ready for my photoshoot! It’s for a clothing brand’s Instagram which will be cool. To be honest I really love when I can do my own makeup like today. Don’t get me wrong because working with a makeup artist can be so good and I can learn new things, but I for sure have my own opinions about hair and makeup on myself. Will let you know how the shoot went later on ❤
You saw a quick clip of who I live with in my last video, but here’s more of Kayla! Such a fun and loving person ❤️ We were gonna hike up to the Hollywood sign yesterday, but the sun was setting so we just found a random hill and I led the way, lol. We got a nice view though! It was so pretty with the pink colors in the sky.
I was going to post the video of me and Dan today, but I have to do it tomorrow. I’m on my way to a shoot in San Diego and it will take ages before I get to upload it and my phone will probably end up dying. I’m excited for the shoot though, and I’ll get to see a new place! I will probably vlog the day and for sure take lots of photos as well. It’s even going to be with camels, haha. I just hope they’re treated well! Will update you guys about the day more later!
