My summer has been extremely full of projects and amazing opportunities. I’ve been so busy that I took a decision to take a brake from social media and keep my mind 100% to what I’ve been doing. The reason is because if I decide to to something I want to do it as good as I can. Now I’m going to tell you everything about what I’ve been doing this summer!
In the beginning of summer I went to Germany to be part of the pageant Miss EM. I came home with the biggest smile in the world on my face, the title Miss EM, amazing experience and new friends. The feeling was beyond amazing to win ANOTHER pageant and this time I knew 100% what I was doing.
By winning the pageant Miss EM I had to work as Miss EM. Just like when I won Miss Iceland I went to China for Miss World. After one month I was back in Germany and worked as Miss EM for two weeks. That work opened many doors for me and taught me so many things. Being on stage and talking in front of thousands of people, writing hundreds of autographs and some photoshoots. This was definitely a life experience that I will always remember and use all my life.
After I came home from Germany the adventure kept on going. The day after I came home I went to LaugarSpa photoshoot which is always nice. Right after the LaugarSpa shoot my biggest opportunity I’ve gotten so far started. I was chosen to be a model for Nike USA or the “official” Nike. Few models from all over the world was picked for this photoshoot and the pictures will go all over the world this winter and the next 2 years at least. I love to tell you that I did great and I was asked to be model for some extra days, just amazing. I can’t tell you more about this shoot and will have to wait excited to see the pictures and hopefully get more opportunities after the pictures go all around the world. This picture was taken after 6 hard but fun days in shooting, completely exhausted! But so worth it.
These opportunities were my biggest this summer except being part of the Miss Iceland 2016 preparation. Because I’ve been so busy in work I love to use my free time as a good quality time, to travel! This summer I’ve been driving all around Iceland. I did the West fjords, Northern Iceland, all they way to Mývatn, all the southern part of Iceland, camping, glacier walk, twice to Westmann Islands and some day trips. I love to relax in the nature, take a day from social media and spend my time with my loved ones. I think that is a very important thing for me because my normal life is full of constant interference from here and there. But I also just love to be outside while the sun is and still bright before the dark winter comes!
My summer has been amazing and still not over! Now is less than a month until I crown the next Miss Iceland 27.august. The preparation for the pageant is going great and I’m sure about the show will be completely amazing this year. After the crowning I’ll run away to Tenerife for two weeks with Egill. I’m so excited about the coming weeks and can’t wait to keep you updated!
My best wishes,
