6: Celebrating 17 of May (Norway’s constitution day). This day is a BIG deal for all norwegians and ofc we had to celebrate it in LA aswell.
It started with a breakfast at my two norwegian exchange students at UCLA,
with amazing cake that me and Thea (old roommate) had made!
then we went to the Moods of Norway store in Beverly Hills and after that things is a bit blurred and I managed to probably be the only person that got thrown out of the event… haha!
We also ate lunch at Earth Cafe which was close. We had with us a Stefan from Moods of Norway which sat during the whole lunch (drunk as F) yelling: VAAAAAGINA! I feel sorry for all the guests…
Then back to the moods of norway event and later on a quick cab to Skybar in West Hollywood. Here I was able to stand again… and then the evening ended with one of my friends getting into a fight with another guy. THE END.
For those who follow me on Instagram you already know this, but for those who dont: I am moving to Paris this summer.
I am attending Sciences Po in Paris to take a french language course to prepare for my masters which I hopefully will be taking in Paris. I am super excited!
Classes start July 1st and goes on until the 27th. It is 76 hours a week (… more than a average working week) so this will be interesting and very intense, however, I hope I will learn some french and also be able to take a step into the Sciences Po system:)
I cant believe I almost only have ONE year left in this amazing city! Here are my most memorable moments in LA. (not in any particular order)
1: Meeting Lana Del Rey: Omg what can I say! This girl is amazing. I was eating dinner at Chateau Marmont with a friend of mine when he takes my hand and guides me over to another table and puts me down on a chair. There, right across the table sat the magnificent Lana Del Rey. I dident know what to say so I just blurted out: “Everyone in Norway loves you!” We started talking about her tour in Europe and that she was going to play on “this island in Norway” (Hove) that summer. She was super sweet and her voice sweet and soft just as in her songs.
2: First trip to Vegas: It was my first LA moment. This was when I discovered the endless possibilities in this city. We got a FREE trip to vegas, and was picked up in a this huge car and driven to Vegas by a driver. We stayed at Encore and went to XS in the evening. Amazing.
3: Meeting Nicholas Berggruen. What a man! What a inspiration. He is made of money, but realized that money dosent make you happy, so he sold everything he had. Kept his G6 and now he travels the world wanting to help california and the US solving its economical problems. He is a inspiration! I ate dinner with him every friday together with friends and other “high” people in LA discussing politics and economy for about 4 months. He is like a grown version of Peter Pan!
4: Insulted the director of Moneyball, Bennet Miller. Was eating dinner with Nicholas when I started talking to the man next to me. A quit man who according to himself likes to analyse everything before engaging in it. I told him I dident like Moneyball and he asked me why. I told him I dident like the end. and He was like: yes, but he choose happiness over money! me: yeah, but still the end was kind of sad. Him: You know I am the director? …. hahaha!
5: Dating a celeb: Not mentioning his name! But I was an interesting time I gotta say. Dont think I am doing that again!
I had a lovely couple of days in Miami! Here are the highlights of my trip
I had an amazing trip!
I stayed at the South Point Tower, which is where the view pictures are from. I ate at this restaurant that I cant find the name of again (perch, pearch something) they had amazing tunatacos and other seafood! If you know which resutrant please comment below. We also ate at the private local resturant at a mansion in downtown. I think you need an invite or know someone locally to eat there. The food was so good, and they served everything from meat to fish to vegan and wonderful deserts.
For ice-cream or gelato, you have to go to this amazing place by south beach called Dolce Vita. I got coconut and yogurt and we all sat there for 20 min just enjoying out ice-cream without saying a word. It was AMAZING!
For clubs ehhh I dont know. Night life in Miami is from 11 pm to 5 am, and it usally starts at one club and moves to the next. Miller is a good place to start for a Thursday, or this other red colored bar we went to. Baoli was also good, great crowd and music! There was a lot of great clubs, but I honestly cant remember them all!
Stay away from Nikki beach… its not like in France… just very tacky to be honest.
