What’s been going on?

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 ❀

We’re Moving!

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 ❀

You Need To Go Here!

This place! I always have to come here at least once when I’m in Oslo. It’s a completely vegan place where you can basically get anything. Pizza, kebab, beef and rice, burgers – all with soy protein or other plant based ingredients. Amazing! Vegan Loving Hut if you’re ever in Oslo ❀

I tried one of their pizzas today for the first time, and it was so nice! I couldn’t eat it all (which is strange) so I took the rest with me and can’t wait to eat it tonight, haha.

Now Mathilde and I are back home ready to chill for a bit before possibly going to the gym. Been going so hard these days and almost every day so I’m really feeling it in my body, but I want to do it as much as I can now that I have so much extra time.

I’m Stuck In Oslo!

Yep… Not too sure for how long, but no more than 10 days. I have never in my life brought such a small amount with me for traveling, because I wasn’t even staying for 24 hours in Oslo. I was even going back to work in London the next day. I didn’t think they would take my passport for 10 days giving me no chance of going back to London. But it’s my mistake because I should have thought of it…

Oslo is nice and I love that I get to spend more time with Mathilde, I only feel bad about work and not being able to make my shifts – so I’m hoping it will all be sorted out as soon as possible. Nothing I can do about it now though, so I will enjoy my time here still.

If you’re wondering I didn’t bring my mac, camera, only a tiny bit of makeup, one pair of jeans and shoes and two hoodies πŸ™‚ Really happy I get to steal things from Mathilde πŸ™‚

I’ll show you more of this look soon on the blog by the way! I never use red lipstick, but maybe I should. Love how it makes the lips stand out.

I’m Back In London!

After a short and nice, but tiring weekend back home I’m now back in London. Not enough sleep mixed with alcohol doesn’t always go well with me. I have always had a need to take enough time for myself when it comes to sleep and getting things done, as well as just relaxing because I do stress too much, so it’s important for me to have a “break” once in a while. And when that doesn’t happen I basically get ill, like I have been all day. That mixed with traveling is not a good mix.

But – I must say it was worth it. It’s been such a great weekend, and I’ll keep the nice memories!

Now I’m very ready to start a new week, new job as a hostess, and just work even harder! Also so good to see Dan again ❀ He makes me feel at home even though I just left. I remember Caitlin saying “the traveler found a home” when we started getting more serious. It’s kinda cute? If you like those cheesy things πŸ™‚ Now we’ll go to the shop then fall asleep watching something.

Today’s travel outfit! Super comfy and simple.

Such a long day to be honest, I would never recommend anyone to buy a suitcase from Primark 😦 😦 It sucks and it’s so annoying because I can’t push it properly!! Also I had to change underground and DLR and all that and I just got so sweaty and hungry. But just imagine how happy I feel now! Back in London (surprisingly nice) with food and a cozy bed.

I’m also almost going straight back to work which I’m really happy about, I just have tomorrow off before I start. I’ll have to get some things done and get back to the gym on my day off! Will be nice.

Anyways I’ll take a shower now then probably watch something and fall asleep! Hope everyone’s good ❀
