Why Am I Going To LA? What Am I Doing?

So you might be wondering about this – as I haven’t said too much. So what am I doing, and why am I going?

Well – since I was a little girl it has always been a dream for me, but always because of opportunities. I have been hard working and very ambitious for as long as I can remember and I have been very aware of the fact that I can’t do all I want and achieve everything I’m working for in a small city in Norway.

I have time after time seen LA as a place to live, or stay for a period of time to make the best of my goals and opportunities. It has come to a point in my life where I feel like that is the one and only thing that can be next, and the exact thing I need.

As of right now I have never been to America before, and I have heard both good and bad. It might be a lot of talk, and maybe not as good as it seems, a lot of fake people for sure, but I’m prepared – and that is why I will be going for two months, just to see what it’s all about and if it’s anywhere I can do better and grow. I have a lot of different plans while I’m there, and I’ll of course let you guys know my honest opinions and how I’m finding it. I’m going with an open mind, but can’t help to be extremely excited! It’s gonna be so weird to actually be there. Little Marte wouldn’t have believed it.

If you ever wondered how a girl from a small town in Norway got together with a big city guy from London – you’ll be getting your answer really soon! The other day we did a video telling you guys how we met and how we started seeing each other. I’m in the middle of editing it, so stay tuned and it will be out soon!😍

I loooove my new camera! Look how good the pics turn out! This is me sitting near the place I always used to jog to in the mornings when I lived here. It’s really pretty, but also extremely windy most of the time. That’s what you get for being somewhere so north in Norway and so close to the ocean.

Dan and I did a vlog for you guys today as well, and it’s so much easier now! Can’t wait to show you guys, and you’ll definitely see the difference from the previous videos. I’ll start doing some packing and stuff before LA now, and then I’m gonna go to the gym. Remember to watch my video here for some of my favourite booty exercises!

Leaving Bodø Tomorrow!

Leaving already? As I told you all I’m going to Los Angeles in October, which is THIS month?! Wow. That’s crazy. I don’t think I’ll actually feel like I’m going there until I’m there, haha. It’s something I have always wanted to do, since I was a little kid getting annoyed at my mom because she didn’t make me grow up there so I could be in Disney Channel, haha. Such a weird kid, but at least my ambitions started early.

Anyways – it’s not where I’m going yet! As some of you know I just became an auntie! My brother and his girlfriend had a baby which is still so surreal, and I can’t wait to see her! Her name is “Lykke” which means happiness in English. So beautiful.

So tomorrow my mom and I will be driving down to see her! I’ll get to see my dad as well as he lives in the same place, so that’s nice. I’m probably gonna vlog it, I think it’s so nice to keep videos for the memories as well.

Now it’s time for breakfast with my boyfriend ❤

Workout Video?

Sunday in Norway, and I almost forgot how dead it is here compared to London. Almost everything is closed on Sunday and everyone stays inside with their hangover watching movies and films. Quite nice though.

For me it’s not a hangover kinda day, rather trying to be efficient kinda day. Just went gym and now I’m sitting here editing a video for you guys! Dan filmed me doing my favorite legs and glutes workout so I’m excited to show you guys! You’ll also see some of my results in the video. So happy I decided to start doing some weights instead of always running or doing cardio. That being said I don’t do that much cardio now, but I used to walk a lot in London just going to different places or working – so now I’ll make sure to do some hiking or running in nature while I’m here. It’s one of the things I love about my hometown.

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 ❤
