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.
Dan and I finally got the chance to be tourists today and explore more of Sydney! Soooo fun and I feel like I already love this city so much more when I don’t have to be running around looking at apartments all stressed out. It’s so beautiful here. We went out to eat near the Opera house and then went on to see the Botanic Gardens. Dan did his favourite thing – find different birds and film them. It’s really cool to see so many different animals here though! Can’t wait to see more. If it’s one thing I’ve been wanting to work with for my whole life it’s animals, either as a job or volunteering. I will for sure do it later on.
We went to see a few apartments yesterday that we ended up applying for, and it seemed like it’s gonna go the right way, so hopefully we can start fixing and decorating our home very sooooon ❤ I would be so happy.
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.
For anyone wanting a cool editing app – download HUJI from app store. Gives your pictures more of an vintage look and I looove it.
Dan and I are currently back in Oslo after being in my hometown for a few days. Other plans for the summer? I want to make more videos for you guys, be more creative and work harder. Trips? Thinking of going to see my brother, dad and little niece very soon, then I’ll go back home to spend some time with my mom as well before August is over. After that I really want to visit Mathilde and Amy who’s moving (!!!) to Berlin and maybe take a quick trip somewhere in Europe for a weekend with Dan. And in between this is a lot of work as well! Haha, believe me. And then when September is over… A new destination might be next up… To live, experience and learn. You’ll know ❤
The other day I did a little model throwback on my insta story (@martefre) so I thought why not share it here as well?
Here’s some random photographs from my modeling journey so far!
From my second time living in Athens doing a show for Vassilios Kostetsos.
Little Marte when I first started modeling, looking so young haha.
Also younger me. Freckles in the summer.
Lots of B&W…
Catwalk in Oslo…
Very fun, different shoot with Alex Falcao.
My first photoshoot from when I was living in Milan. Not my typical look you could say. Such an amazing time to look back at though. Need to find more pictures asap, haha.
That’s a few! I have way more pictures if you want me to do another throwback.
Other than that Dan and I are finally starting to get everything set up here in Oslo! My project with our place is hanging up lots and lots of lights on the walls, getting some pictures up as well and getting a huuuuge mirror. Can’t wait to show you all when it’s done – probably on video!
Also if you haven’t already – go check out our newest prank video here! Dan telling my best friend he’s cheated on me… His first prank and you neeeed to see it!
So you might have been wondering why there hasn’t been that much going on here and why there hasn’t been that many updates. The main thing is that I’m currently a semi-finalist in Miss Norway. So I’m updating a blog there: Miss Norway Marte.
Would love for you to keep reading my posts on there and translating it to understand if you’re not Norwegian! And of course keep coming to my website for YouTube videos (coming up!!) and more pictures ❤
If you’re already reading this blog you know how I am working toward more awareness about mental health and selective mutism, and being in this competition is a great opportunity for me to reach out to even more people.
I have also moved to Oslo and Dan’s gonna join me today! So a lot of things going on at the moment, but I’m excited. We’re really taking things as they come, while working super hard on what we can from day to day – and I’m really happy about that.
Hope you want to follow my journey and keep reading my updates here for now. Lots of love ❤
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 ❤
