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 ❤
Last weekend Dan and I had a little getaway. For Christmas I wanted to give him an experience rather than a thing, so I rented an Airbnb in Narrabeen, basically right on Narrabeen Beach, as a little weekend getaway. It’s really the best time I’ve had here since we arrived. It was such a calm and nice little town, I loved our cozy apartment and being able to start the day on the balcony looking out to the beach and hearing the waves constantly throughout the days.
It makes me feel kinda silly for choosing to live right in the city of Sydney when I know how much I love the beach life, but for now I just need to focus on making the best out of my opportunities while being here where there is a lot going on.
I wanted to share some of the pictures from our weekend with you guys ❤
If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat you probably saw more of our weekend there – if you’re not following already my username is @martefre on both ❤
My favourite part of the day will always be the morning. The mornings when I can wake up, fix my coffee and breakfast, sit alone and do my work – work creatively with the things I enjoy like editing, writing and making plans for what I want to shoot or focus on next. Just a nice and peaceful time to take in new ideas and inspiration.
Fresh coffe, low music, notebooks.
My inspiration for 2019. Maybe I would be able to start every day this way by next year.
One of the newest looks I’ve done for Lava Art with sheer, nutty eyeshadow and nutty nude lip colour. I love looks like this because both brown/bronzed and pink/nude makeup is always my go-to and the looks I prefer on me. I also bought these amazing earrings from work, and I love them sooo much! There was a time I would only wear silver, but I’m starting to love gold style jewelry now. The bright blue top I’m wearing is actually a bikini for H&M in a velvet fabric, not too sure how it will turn out when I use it on the beach, but so far it’s the comfiest bikini I’ve had, and really has the prettiest colour.
The apartment is finally starting to look more like a home, mostly our rooms, but it feels so nice getting closer and closer. It’s something so new to me, having to set up and fix absolutely everything in an apartment, but it’s for sure something you need to experience as an adult and I guess it was about time. I really do feel like I’ve grown a lot though, it’s just so important to me now having a proper place to come home to. With nice plants, candles and pictures. Until now I’ve always shared my “home” with people I don’t know, which for sure is a life lesson in itself as well, but now I just really need a proper home. Even if it’s not for the longest time. I have also decided I’ll never live in a place with strangers again, I just really feel like I’m completely done with doing that. I’ve done it for six years now so I feel like I’ve experienced it in every way, both the good and the bad.
I’ll show you guys details of our apartment when it’s all done! Stay tuned ❤

I’m kinda stuck with a feeling of not knowing what I’m doing, not even knowing how I feel about Sydney yet. So far it’s been stressful and less free than what I remember when I first moved to London. I know it’s partly because the circumstances are different, but I also know what situations and moments I need. It’s not always the easiest thing even though you know why and how and all that. You probably don’t know what I’m talking about, but I’ll continue writing anyway. It ‘s so difficult describing what I’m feeling because I really don’t know just now, I’m not sure.
I’m now 22 and it feels weird to be honest. Well only the number I guess. Saying it and writing it. It just doesn’t feel like me. Your age isn’t you, but it’s still weird. I’ve decided this is going to be the year of realising things. Just realising everything. Kidding. I think you know where I was going. But I do want to figure out things. It’s not very specific, I know, but luckily I know what I mean. It’s difficult though. I just feel like there’s so many parts of me, so many passions and it’s all just a bit too blurry. As long as I try and also remember to challenge myself, then possibly end up failing, but for sure learning, then do it again, and eventually get to where I want. Sounds like a plan? I think so.
Something random: Today was the craziest weather day here in Sydney. It was a thunderstorm and I’ve never experienced anything like it. I believe there were quite a few accidents though, at least one very bad, which is extremely sad. I find it so scary how you can just leave home one morning and then never come back again… It’s very true but so upsetting…
I hope the weather was better where you are, and that you’re all good and safe!
