If I could describe the day perfectly: Yoga. Eat. Chill. Repeat.
Yesterday Sara and I drove out to Malibu for the Alo Yoga all-day retreat. It was located at a beautiful beachfront house in Northern Malibu and complete with on-site chefs, yoga classes, tons of Alo Yoga gear, and a whole lot of sand and salt.
brunch: fresh omelettes, coconuts, bagels and lox, fresh fruit and yogurt, and finger lickin’ good MONKEY BREAD
pool time (wearing Chiquelle Swimwear, find it here)
OPI nail bar
reiki healing sessions and tarot “angel card” readings
beach time (with the golden retriever Ellie!)
sunset yoga: best yoga experience
dinner: chicken carbonara pasta, fresh salad, grilled white fish, green and white bean salad, and grilled peaches for dessert
Does this not sound like the best day ever? We were on cloud 9. It was the best thing we could’ve done after a long flight home from Europe. I woke up today feeling motivated in so many different aspects of my life. We got to hang out with such an incredible group of people, each with a cool and unique story to tell. Love it!
THE HAMPTON WRAP TOP AND WRAP SKIRT, FROM MONTAZAMI BRAND
How darn cute is this plaid print wrap set! You can wear the top two different ways: tied in the front with some high-waisted denim, or tied in the back with it’s matching skirt. We JUST released it on the website, along with lowered shipping costs and faster delivery times for our European customers How great is that? The shipping is now half of what it used to cost. We are also releasing the new choker style tomorrow, so stay tuned for that!

Why is it SO easy to make excuses for sinful foods when you’re on vacation? If I had a penny for all of the times I’ve said “who cares, I’m on vacation,” I’d be rich! I think it’s perfectly fine to live a little when you’re away from home, but since I’m traveling a lot these days, I try my best to stay in check! But then I see that gelato, the mjuk glass, the pizza, and my heart says GET IT BABY. So yeah, I went a little crazy on this trip in regards to sweets and carbs, but now it’s time to get my diet back on track. A lot of fruits, veggies, and sushi for me this next couple of weeks. I’ll be posting some healthy recipes here on the blog so you guys can follow along with my health kick. If you have any inspo for healthy recipes, let me know! I definitely want to try a zoodle recipe and a healthy-ish eggplant dish. Let’s do this baby.
Ahhh. I can’t tell you guys how nice it is to be home. The flight was not too bad but it felt like a full 24 hours.. And I had the worst stomach ache towards the end (thanks to the bread and tons of candy). But I’m home now and I’m SO HAPPY. Just showered, now I’m unpacking a little with some music and candles lit in my room. Can’t wait to wake up tomorrow, make myself some green tea, and get back into the swing of things. Talk soon babes

Now we’re in Stockholm waiting to board the flight to LA. I’m so ready to go home!
Sitting on the train from Helsingborg to Copenhagen airport… I’m so tired and I’m a little mad at myself for not going to bed earlier last night! Oh well, we’re on our way home to LA now. It was such a great trip and we got a lot of work done, so I’m very happy about that. Yesterday we spent the whole day at Malin’s house counting inventory and teaching her how to wrap a Montazami Brand package. We officially have a distribution center in Sweden!
Here’s a glimpse of our charming hotel room in Helsingborg, at Hotel Helsing. It had so much character! You know you’re going to like the hotel when you’re greeted with cold champagne on ice and a box of chocolates. But the best part were the fresh apples in the lobby… I took two when I left this morning haha. Thank you Hotel Helsing for a great stay, I’m sure I’ll be back soon
Good morning! It’s so nice to wake up in Helsingborg after a very successful work day yesterday. Today we’re gunna stroll the town for an hour or so and then head back to Malin’s house to have a Montazami Brand meeting. Did I tell you that Montazami Brand will start shipping from Sweden? You know what that means right?!! Lower shipping costs and way shorter wait time!!!! This is fricken HUGE. I can’t wait. More info on this later <3
Here’s some photos from a couple showrooms Sara and I visited the other day in Stockholm. We went to three different ones, all on opposite sides of town haha. It didn’t help that we didn’t have a Swedish phone wth us…. calling a taxi was next to impossible. But we made it and picked out some great things to take home with us!
Another pop-up shop goes down in Montazami Brand history, and this was our best one yet! Everything about it was just WOW. It was the perfect setting… we were lucky enough to have it at Malin’s beautiful home in Helsingborg. There was an amazing turnout, so thank you to everyone who came, and to everyone who didn’t get a chance to get on the RSVP list, just know that there will be tons more opportunities in the near future!
Our top sellers of the day:
CUT THE CRAP TEE [here]
DON’T HASSLE THE TASSLE TEE [here]
RODEO FLARE PANTS [here]
Love you guys! Talk in the a.m. xx
Ängelholm made quite the first impression on me, what a cute little town! We stopped there for a few hours before we drove down to Helsingborg, so we had time to grab lunch out in the shopping center. My mormor recommended a little spot called Ostbutiken and it was by far the best meal of the trip! You could tell the ingredients were very fresh and locally sourced, which is always a huge plus for me. We got a cheese platter, lentil and carrot soup, and a shrimp salad (best I’ve ever had, hands down) and sipped some dry rose in the sun together It was so nice to have three generations at the table, which we don’t get very often!
I WANNA ROCKKKK! Haha I’ve been hearing that song every 5 minutes on this one Swedish commercial and we can’t stop singing it. I hope one of you guys here in Sweden know what I’m talking about 😛 Yesterday Sara and I went to Rockbjörnen, a music awards show in Stockholm. We ran into so many of our friends, but also made some new ones. We also chatted with a few famous You-tubers and it really inspired Sara and I to start a channel together. I think it would be so much fun… Anyways, the theme was “leather and studs” so Sara and I dressed extra edgy than our usual style. I wore my hair up in a mid-ponytail, which I haven’t done in I don’t know how long! It was a great night but we went home a little early because of our flight today. We are currently waiting to board the plane to Ängelholm, where we will meet up with my mom and mormor Talk soon loves!
