DENNE DAGEN I BILDER!

Våkner av meg selv etter å ikke ha kommet meg opp av senga da alarmen(e) jeg hadde satt kvelden før gikk av. Jeg er alltid så optimistisk kvelden før, til tross for at i dette tilfellet (som mange andre) hadde jeg vært våken ganske sent med ting jeg mener av en eller annen grunn jeg ikke kan gjøre neste dag, i tillegg til en lang ettermiddag på jobb før det. Det er nok ikke så normalt å sette klokka på så tidlig når man har “fri”, men for meg føles det alltid best å få gjort andre ting som jeg både vil og “må” gjøre, når jeg ikke jobber. Og jeg elsker seriøst å ta en powernap etter at jeg har fått gjort alt.

Frokost! Dette er faktisk en ganske typisk frokost her. Som regel spiser jeg helst muesli, men jeg har blitt så lei av absolutt alt. Så da har jeg begynt med denne over her. Ikke den aller sunneste, men mye protein og en god start på dagen. Jeg har akkurat kjøpt chia frø og dairy free yoghurt som jeg skal begynne med igjen. Jeg brukte alltid å legge chia frø i bløt kvelden før for så å ha det med yoghurt og havregryn til frokost. Det er helt klart mer mettende enn bare en vanlig frokostblanding.

Ellers ser dere også verdens beste pålegg over her. Det er et slags sjokoladepålegg, bare en god del bedre for deg enn det vanlige og uten noe som helst melk eller laktose. Det er såååå digg!

Frokost og sesong 1 av Team Ingebrigtsen. Skulle begynne på sesong 2 senere, men det var selvfølgelig ikke tilgjengelig utenfor Norge 🙂 Sykt irriterende.

Akkurat ferdig å filme sminkevideo! Jeg jobber med et sminkemerke og filmer noen videoer for de hver måned med deres produkter. Jeg synes alltid det er så gøy å få lov til å gjøre det! Det blir mye forskjellige looks, og også mange jeg aldri ville gått med sånn ellers – men det er det som er morsomt! Også forbedrer jeg jo selvfølgelig ferdighetene mine når det kommer til sminke, og det er også veldig gøy.

Før jeg satt i gang med filmingen fikk jeg pratet en stund med Mathilde som er i Berlin og ryddet opp hjemme ❤

Jeg tenkte å komme meg ut for å trene i finværet, men det var litt vanskelig. Kroppen var sulten så jeg lagde meg tidenes beste (!) veggie burger før jeg måtte fikse litt kaffe for å få litt ekstra energi. Når man legger seg 3-4 kan det være vanskelig å stå opp tidlig og være super effektiv. Jeg legger meg egentlig veldig sjeldent så sent, det er virkelig ikke bra for kroppen. Hvis jeg får ekstremt lite søvn føles det ut som om jeg har hangover og blir sykt fort syk. Veldig sensetiv med andre ord, haha.

Uansett – koffein og Our Planet på Netflix var det jeg trengte. Akkurat det jeg så på da var helt ærlig vondt å se på. Hvalrosser (tror jeg) har måtte gått fra å hvile på store isflak til små, stappfulle øyer. Akkurat den de viste her var vel den med mest hvalrosser på i hele verden. Det verste var at noen av de drar litt opp i høyden på disse øyene, med steiner og berg, for å finne en plass å hvile med større rom – men de ser dårlig når de er borte fra vannet og det er i tillegg utrolig vanskelig for de å komme seg ned igjen med sine tunge kropper – så de har nesten ikke noe annet valg enn å falle i døden når de må tilbake til havet for å skaffe mat. De faller rett ned på steiner, berg og ruller rundt før de omsider treffer bakken. Det er jo oss mennesker sin feil at det er blitt sånn… Anbefaler å se litt på Our Planet på Netflix, så får du garantert vite noe du ikke visste fra før av.

Ferdig med intervaller ute og sjukt svett! Det er så digg når jeg presser kroppen min på en annen måte enn bare å løfte vekter, spesielt når jeg kan gjøre det ute. Man blir liksom en annen type sliten.

Ut for å gjøre litt ærender! Her ser dere forresten litt av plantene utenfor leiligheten vår!

Se så fint det er her!! Jeg elsker at alle samles i parken med drikke og mat, det er så koselig. I tillegg er det jo Good Friday i dag, så det var utrolig mange folk ute.

Møter kjæresten etter jobb ❤ Han jobber seriøst rett ved leiligheten og lever drømmen. Vi bestemte oss for å sjekke om butikken i nærheten var åpen.

8181E495-F162-4E29-AC47-07639863F394

Butikken var åpen og jeg kjøpte favorittsjokoladen min og pepsi max. På tide å slappe helt av.

Nå sitter jeg her med anisktsmaske og grønn te, såååå klar for å sove godt. Jeg har alltid vært veldig heldig med huden min og har aldri hatt noe problemer med kviser, så jeg bruker aldri ansiktsmaske i hele ansiktet. Jeg tror ikke det er så lurt å bruke masse unødvendige produkter på en hud som ikke har behov for det.

Dan lagde også spagetti bolognese (der har han helt ærlig et talent) tidligere. Han dro for å trene nå og jeg prøver jeg å finne ut når jeg må stå opp for å komme meg til jobb i tide i morgen tidlig! Så har jeg fri på søndag og da blir det litt påskekos.

Så det var egentlig dagen i dag! Håper dere likte at jeg delte det med dere. Dette er jo egentlig en skikkelig hverdags-dag på en måte, og de dagene er jeg veldig glad i. Særlig når jeg jobber en del og endelig har fri, da er det alltids en del som må gjøres og jeg er i tillegg en person som trenger å ha dager der jeg bare gjør mine egne ting, alene, for at jeg skal klare å være uthvilt og egentlig generelt glad og fornøyd. Det er bare sånn jeg funker, og jeg elsker det.

Hvordan “lader” dere og føler at dere samler energi? Alene, eller når dere er sammen med andre? Jeg er nysgjerrig!

First Day of 2019 – Thoughts

I’ll be honest. First day of 2019 and I haven’t ever felt more lost. It’s how it goes though isn’t it? In your twenties you’re a bit lost and then you find yourself? I have always known what I wanted to do next, where I want to go next, why I am where I am and doing what I am doing, but now – I have no idea.

I am thankful and grateful that I got to share my story last year, and be some kind of support for anyone struggling with Selective Mutism. That I had my first talk about it and that my Mom and I finally got to experience the support from others ourselves, even though I don’t have it anymore it was such an emotional experience. This is my most cherished moment from last year. I will keep working even harder this year!

I moved to Oslo with Dan. Somewhere I never thought I would have enjoyed, but turns out – I did have some amazing months. I also finally got to live closer to my best friend, and even though it didn’t last for long I really appreciated being able to have her so close. I also made some amazing friendships – we didn’t get too much time, but the time we had gave us something to keep for years on and for that I am thankful. I loved being able to be closer to my mom, just a quick flight away and I was home, back to the safest place I know, right next to her ❤ I was also closer to the rest of my family – my brother, dad, aunts, cousins, and my little niece… I went through some tough times and lost my Grandpa, and to be honest it’s still very heartbreaking to think about. If my Oslo time taught my anything it’s that my family means everything to me. We don’t have all the time in the world and I just want to spend the time I’m given with them around me. Everyone’s getting older and I just don’t feel like being so far away all the time. So you could probably ask what the hell I’m doing on the other side of the world? I couldn’t even tell you, but I think my restlessness just had to get me here. And that’s probably the biggest reason for why I’m feeling so lost right now. What am I doing so far away? It’s not like I haven’t done it before, it just feels different this time.

I also tried Miss Norway, which I am thankful for because I figured out I really had something to share – my story with SM meant something so much bigger than I ever thought, but it also just made me experience once again how messed up this world is. Old men convincing girls to pay and give them money to be in a pageant that claims to “be more than just about beauty” because you have to have a “case” to fight for – yet if you got them any money the attention was there, but if you made a difference and worked for something bigger it was ignored. I got to the finale and I decided enough was enough. I wrote a blog post about everything I had experienced, and I do really hope other girls read it and learned something from it.

I also started spending more time in the gym with weights and only grew more and more passionate about it. My body has changed – no doubt about it, but so has my mind, and I’m happier than ever just being me.

Dan and I reached our goal this year as well, or should I say goals. We moved to Oslo, worked hard and saved up money so we could go to Australia. I finally got to see Caitlin again, and like we did in London we got the chance to live together again. This time in the cutest apartment. And now we’re here.

It’s nice here, the scenery is beautiful and the weather is amazing. I even love the thunderstorms.

In terms of work I want to be more creative, but the industry seems a lot different over here. Like always I do have some sort of plan for what I am doing and I am very passionate about it, and to be honest right here in Sydney could be a good place to start.

I just don’t know what it is. I struggle to feel like I should be here, that this is the place for me right now. Then again Australia is big and other places might feel different, and I haven’t seen everything even here in Sydney – I just wish the weird feeling would go away.

I’m young and I’ll figure it out. I’m lucky I’m not here completely alone and I got good people around me – which I am so grateful for.

Just because people are traveling and being somewhere completely different than you, sharing photos and experiencing something else – I really don’t want you to think it’s all perfect! It’s tough, and this time it’s much more tougher than I thought it would be – but nothing is wrong with that. Maybe it isn’t for me, maybe I will end up loving it and things will change, but whatever I figure out I just know I’ll have to listen to my true feelings. I’m still staying here for now, and for the rest of 2019 – let’s see what happens. I am incredible grateful to get another year on this earth. I’ll do my best this year – let’s get to work ❤

I Can’t Describe It

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!

We’re Moving Again!

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.

Good, Important Changes

50065848-57B1-4027-A74A-463913BD59CC

For the last year (++) I have been lifting weights and from that I’ve become both more strong and curvy, which I honestly feel so comfortable with. I am so happy that I’ve gotten to the stage I have, just thinking back at how I started my modeling career now seems like a completely different world to me. I am so happy for my experience through the good and the bad.

I actually start a new job on Monday – where I can still use my experience as a model, be strong and exactly how I am, and for once really understand and see a different side to the fashion industry. More of the business side and the parts behind it all. Being part of a company and a team, not just a model and a mannequin.

It’s so crazy how things work out sometimes. You really don’t know what the next day will bring until it’s here. Suddenly I have a job I really wanted and an apartment in Sydney. I’m grateful.

It’s currently 03:03am here and I have been looking at “awkward moments” videos on YouTube for too many hours now. I started off with someone singing and now I’m way past that. Time to go to bed.

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.
