Just a little update of what's been going on lately.
We are settling in to our tiny new home and have decided we'll probably stay here for the duration of our stay in the US. The landlords are great, our next door neighbours too, the neighbourhood is wonderful, the garden is lovely and we don't need more living space than this.
My hair is getting lighter from the sun. It scares me a little, but so far it looks good. I even think it looks redder than normal, but there are some parts of it that are starting to look more strawberry blond than chestnut red. I wonder what it will look like in a few months.
I don't know if I've written this on here before, but I have never dyed my hair. I was bullied for my hair colour when I was a kid and that made me decide to never ever fall for their evil words. I said to myself that I'm going to love my hair colour and make it my statement. So that's what I did.
Now when it's starting to change it scares me. I've gotten some grey hairs and that doesn't bother me too much, but what does make me sad is to see the red go away.
We'll see what happens. Maybe I will need to dye it one day in the future to feel like my true self again.
We went to a fancy Hollywood party last week. It was equal parts exciting, scary, fun and weird.
We looked good though.

I took a selfie in the restroom of the fancy Beverly Hills mansion the party was in. Because who wouldn't, right?
The landlord's dog Pickles is getting used to us being around. Lately she's even come for visits.
It's been very hot here lately. And everybody keeps saying it's going to get a lot warmer soon. I'm scared.
My body just doesn't do heat very well. The shoes I brought with me fits my feet perfectly here, in Sweden they almost fall off my feet with every step I take. It's actually quite crazy how big a difference it is.
But I think I'm getting more and more used to the temperatures here, and it's great that the air is so dry because that makes the heat a lot more bearable.
Friday evening makes a budding Hollywood director very tired.
We go for a lot of evening walks around the neighbourhood here.
The temperature is wonderful when the sun goes down and it's nice to get to know our surroundings by walking.
Our neighbourhood even has a Spooky Tree!

And in other thoughts: I have been thinking a lot about what to do with this blog. I'm definitely not abandoning it, but I feel like I don't know what to post on here, and I feel kind of stressed about that fact.
I update my instagram every day and that has become my favourite place to post pictures and random thoughts right when they happen. So to blog about all those things one more time over here feels like I'm repeating myself, and what I want for this blog anyway is for it to be fun and interesting and sometimes with some clever thoughts.
SO: I'm going to change it up a little.
I will be posting mostly photos from my Nikon D7000 here from now on but I will also write more. I have a couple of posts waiting in my head, and I think you are going to like them a lot.
For updates on what happens in my day to day life, I thoroughly recommend my instagram. I'm having so much fun over there right now, and you don't even need an instagram account of your own to follow along, just go to instagram.com/lottalosten to see what I'm up to.

I hope this will make this space more interesting, because I hate to feel like I don't have a clear purpose for this site that is always going to be my favourite place on the internet.

Until next time:
