Tourists In Sydney

69733388-0FAE-46BA-A784-BDDC9ED7AA0A

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.

Finally we are here! It was such a long journey to get here but so worth it. I can’t say we have seen too much yet, but there’s a lot that reminds me of LA – only cleaner and less crazy, haha. We have already seen one apartment, and are looking at more tomorrow, sorted out SIM card and bank account – so I would say we’ve gotten a lot done for just one day. It’s always quite a few things that needs to be sorted out when you move somewhere new, so the best thing is always to start as soon as possible. The jet lag is still a bit of a struggle, but that’s just how it is. I’ll update more very soon 💕

BTS – Shoot With Dan

Here’s a few bts pictures from today’s shoot! So nice that the photographer wanted to have a shoot with us both. We went to a really cool location as well – I love it when I get to see new places during a photoshoot. I saw a new part of Oslo, and sooo many nice houses. Impossible not to daydream walking around there.

I’m so excited so see and also to show you guys the pictures, so stay tuned ❤

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.

It was never a choice

It was never a choice. What kid would choose to not speak up, not get to know new people, hearing adults and kids talk about you – but say nothing yourself?

Selective Mutism is an anxiety disorder and it used to be my entire life. There needs to be more knowledge, more support and more help.

My mom and I fought through it, all alone. Teachers needs to be aware of what’s going on right in front on them. No kid deserves to feel like the weight of the world is on their shoulders, and they have to carry it all alone. Not even professionals being able to help, or understand.

If you told me as a little girl that one day I would stand up and confidently share my story and be an inspiration to others – little Marte with anxiety would have never believed you. The loud, stubborn and ambitious Marte I was as home would have just told you “I can do anything.”

Local time LA: 23.45

Some photos from the event we attended a little while ago! Always in front of the neon lights, lol. I loooove this jacket by the way. Red and teddy material. How perfect?! This is where I’m really questioning changing my hair color and going blonde, outfit like these wouldn’t look as good would they? In my head I’m picturing it would look more cheap and messy…. I don’t know! I need to figure it out for when I get back home.

Other than that things seems like they are getting more clear and I’m getting a tiny bit back for my hard work, right before I leave of course – but I appreciate everything and I know I always have to be patient and thankful. But there’s no doubt about the opportunities that comes while living in this city, they are here for sure.

If you want to know details which I’m guessing because it’s annoying just reading in codes, I can tell you a little bit because you’re in here reading my blog ❤ So I actually have a business meeting tomorrow for something that you will be seeing a lot of soon (hopefully!!), I have been planning two shoots, and I will be doing some photography work as well before I leave which is really cool! I mean more than this I can’t really tell you at this time. It’s a good step forward and I’m excited!

Should I Change My Hair?

Some late night pics after the club the other day. I love faux leather – especially pants. They’re high waisted as well which is like the only pants I ever want to use because they always fits me the best I think – and they are perfect to mix with bodysuits or crop tops.

Yesterday we had a nice little Thanksgiving (my first one!) here in the apartment. We filmed for you guys as well so stay tuned for the vlog! I’ll add a video of me talking a bit about LA as well – my thoughts, experience, differences in people from London…

And another thing – I feel like I should change my hair?! I am originally dark blonde, but I’ve had brown/black since I was like 15 years old. Should I dye it blonde? Should I cut it short? What do you guys think?! I’m so indecisive about my hair, but I’ve had it like this for so long – the only difference is the change in dark shades or just cutting it a bit. It’s just hair right?! I wanna do something cool and different. I did a vote on my Instagram story but it looks like people would want me to keep it this way, I’m not convinced though…

I’ll go check out a little bit of the Black Friday sale at Urban Outfitters, then go get a coffee. Weather is amazing ❤
