HAVE YOU HEARD of the Christmas gift that Montazami Brand is giving this year? The gift of FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE…. all the way up until Christmas! Buy your holiday gifts without the hassle of shipping fees 😉
Featured in this picture: [CLICK TO SHOP]
….Because skincare and beauty products can get expen$ive, and you’re probably going to end up buying it anyway so why not just ask for it for Christmas?!
MAC lipsticks (I’m wishing for Velvet Teddy, Whirl, and a few others)
KYLIE COSMETICS Kyshadow (this bronze pallette is amazing! I’m all about the warm colors)
[Clarins UV Plus Sunscreen] (It has a ton of sun protection and it goes on your skin really nicely)
[L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks] (I do these weekly… they give me such a glow!)
This post contains some adlinks!
Part II of my holiday gift guide is now here and everything you see above is ready to shop! Just click on the links I have provided and it will take you straight to that product. Some of them I couldn’t link because it’s sold out (AHEM, Kylie Cosmetics).
ps. taking any and all recommendations on MAC (or any other brand) lipsticks for the season? I want something a little more dramatic. TELL ME. Darker and bolder than what I usually wear (Velvet Teddy by MAC).
Secretly loving every second of shooting in front of this damn wall. I don’t know why I always had so many negative feelings about it?? Maybe just because I saw it all over Instagram and thought it was kinda been there, done that. But don’t hate it till you try it folks! We snapped a few pics here for Chimi Eyewear because it was right around the corner from where we ate lunch. The photos turned out so sick!! Patiently waiting to see them
Have any of you guys visited the pink wall? If you have then you know what I’m talking about! Not to mention it looks so chic on your insta feed…..
Last week, shooting with Christian Fang
Had a super fun day today around West Hollywood. Gosh it feels like I’m always there…. it’s so much driving for us since we’re located by the beach, but I don’t think I would ever trade it to live in deep LA. I’m more accustomed to the laid back, beach town vibes rather than crazy traffic and fast paced mindsets haha. Anyways, we met with the guys behind Chimi Eyewear for lunch at Mauro’s Cafe and then we shot some photos at the infamous pink wall. I’ve never had the urge to go there and take photos but when I got there it turned out to be pretty cool haha. The bright pink is so nice in the photos… it really pops. Can’t wait to show you guys!
Now we just made dinner and we’re heading to the Rufus Du Sol concert! I saw them at Coachella and really liked them, and now I know a few more songs than I did back then so maybe it’ll be a little more enjoyable this time

So I got a little carried away with my holiday gift guide so I decided I’m going to break it up in different segments, so it’s not too overwhelming for you guys. Today is all about pretty little things, down to your skivvies, and haircare. These are little gift ideas that I came up with that you can either put on your wish list, buy for someone special, or just buy for yourself 😉 I linked everything in writing so you can find it straight from here. Half of the things on here I’ve tried and loved, and the other half I’m putting on my list this year. I’m dying to try Negin Mirsalehi’s Gisou honey hair oil… I just recently started following her on Instagram and fell in love with her look! She has amazing hair so I’m sure it’s a really good product.
Hope all of you had a great weekend and an even better Monday! Now it’s time for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in a couple hours!! I’ve never been more excited to watch it than now, maybe because Bella is walking this year. The only bad part is I feel like I’ve already seen all of the outfits? Thank you social media…..

HAPPY FRIDAY BABY!
Yesterday I shot with Christian Fang for the first time, he’s a Swedish photographer that I’ve been following for quite some time now. I got to know his work through other Swedish bloggers, so we set up a photoshoot since he’s here visiting LA. He put a cool vintage edit on these, which is a fun contrast from the normal edit I do that you guys are used to. I also shot some other looks with him that you guys will be seeing here on the blog soon!
Right now I’m finishing up the flyer for Montazami Brand’s FREE SHIPPING from now until Christmas. It’ll be in effect in a few hours, so you can get all of your holiday shopping done, free of shipping charges. YAY! Who doesn’t love a good holiday deal?
P.S. I’ve been working really hard to create a fantastic holiday gift guide for you guys to follow as you search for presents to gift your loved ones this Christmas/holiday season. It’s almost finished so look out for that within the next couple of days!
much love x
A snapshot from tonight’s event! Sara and I went to the Flynn Skye holiday party, complete with free ear piercings, diamonds, and hair braiding. We wanted another ear piercing so bad but we were too late to join the list… apparently everyone at the party wanted a piercing haha. I wanted mine in the center of the ear, where the ear cuffs are worn. I might still get it even though I couldn’t tonight!
This beautiful red dress is from Flynn Skye. The fit is to die for! Watch my snapchat story to see video footage of my catwalk (un: hannamonty)
jeans by Acne // bag by Strathberry // sweater by Urban Outfitters // jewelry by Sophie by Sophie // boots by Zara
I finally tried it out. The whole “fishnets under jeans” look! I like how it gives an extra element of detail. That extra something that will make someone do a double take. Next time I might try it out with a tight pair of high waisted blue jeans and a colorful top!
How was your day? Mine was good, I got a spray tan in the morning because I have a couple of shoots lined up for the weekend, and some of them are in underwear (!) and I was so pale. How does someone living in California become so pale?? Every time I try to lay out it gets too cold haha. Last weekend I lathered myself up in Maui Babe tanning lotion (very brown, coffee-scented lotion) only to notice that it had turned into a cloudy day. I was sitting in my apartment like oh ok. Just sitting there in a bikini covered in brown lotion haha.
Right now I’m going to quickly get ready for a home decor event that I’m going to together with my mom and Sara. Have a good night! <3
Work work work! Today consisted of a whole lot of driving and work errands. Doing errands downtown is physically and emotionally draining, and it pretty much takes up your whole day. But you gotta do what you gotta do, and why not stop for a little juice break to keep you going? Today I got the Matcha Hemp almond milk, I think it’s new to the Pressed Juicery menu but I loved it! It’s not too sweet which I like. And LOL at this pink furry jacket that I have not taken off since I got it five days ago. That’s what happens when you’re busy and you just don’t care haha. Hope all of you had a fabulous start to the week. It’s hump day tomorrow!
The lights are twinkling on the tree, and the dinner table is set with our traditional Christmas tableware… we must be getting into the holiday spirit! We picked out the tree this weekend, and as you can see it has some major character. We wanted the one with a few imperfections because those are the cutest! We drank glögg and decorated the tree in silver, white, and turquoise ornaments in the family room. I think it looks so good! Now all we need is the fireplace on…
Tonight we had one of my favorite dinners, it’s very simple but so delicious. Sliced cucumber, tomato, and French feta cheese dressed in olive oil, basil, and salt and pepper with fresh green onion, basil, watercress, and radishes all on top of freshly toasted lavash bread. Yummy!
That one time we had a 20 minute long photoshoot in the middle of Madison’s birthday brunch haha. Seriously though, when you don’t see each other that often, you need to capture the moment with at least 5384 photos!
We had (a little too much) fun celebrating Madi’s 24th birthday on Saturday. We started with brunch, then went to The Bungalow, then proceeded to go out later that night in Laguna. The party just kept on going from 10:30 in the morning until midnight(!) and I definitely paid for it today. I ate the most random things today… as I usually do when I’m feeling hungover. We’re talkin’ chicken fried rice, eggs and beans, sushi, a smoothie, spaghetti squash, even Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal haha. I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow feeling great again. How was your weekend? MORE IMPORTANTLY, how was your shopping weekend?! The sale is still going strong over at Montazami Brand!! Check it out at www.montazamibrand.com
