We’re having our holiday shoot for Montazami Brand on Thursday, and I thought it would be fun to show you guys the mood board we put together for it. We rented out a really cool spot in LA through Peerspace (which is a website where you can rent different locations hourly for things like photoshoots) and hired some really good photographers and a videographer, so we’re extra excited. And we’ll be shooting our new styles, which means there will be a bunch of newness happening on the Montazami Brand website soon!
What do you guys think? We’re going for a very moody, vintage vibe. Simplicity, romance, and femininity are some key themes here. I LIVE for mood boards. It really helps with inspiration and it puts all of your ideas together to make a complete theme. Definitely want to create that adorable newspaper photo!
I hope all of you had an amazing weekend. I’ve finally compiled all of my pictures from our trip to Mexico in October! This vacation was so dreamy, and now has me wanting to go back to Mexico ASAP. We stayed at Hotel Unico in Riviera Maya, which is an all-inclusive resort right on the beach, and surrounded by jungle. It’s about 45 minutes from Tulum and about 30 minutes from Playa Del Carmen, so there are some major towns around the more secluded area where the hotel sits. I absolutely need to come back here. The staff was so friendly, the rooms were nice and spacious with bathtubs on every balcony, the food and drinks were amazing, and the hotel decor is so on point.
Highlights of the trip:
the pool parties that go on every day (with live DJ/band)
zip-lining over the canopy (We booked through Selvatica)
jumping into a beautiful cenote
getting the “Estancia Signature Massage”, which is when two people are working on you at the same time (yes it was as amazing as it sounds)
Have you guys ever been to Rivera Maya before?? If you’re wondering where to book your next tropical vacay, I highly recommend this beautiful place!

I’M SO SORRY FOR THE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES HERE ON THE BLOG. Okay I’ll stop screaming now, but seriously, my apologies for the blog being down the past few days. We’ve been dealing with a hacker. But we’re all good now.
I feel like I have A LOT to catch you guys up on, but I’ll start by telling you guys my plans for the weekend! We are traveling down allllll the way down to OC (lol) where we will be spending Thanksgiving with the family.
Tonight, the night before Thanksgiving, is actually a very popular night to go out in Laguna (and I think across the country as well). Not only are you in your old stomping grounds, but you have a legit high school reunion at the bars. Like, you see EVERYONE. And that might be why they call it black-out Wednesday. The whole point is to be “hungover” for Thanksgiving, but that is definitely NOT in the cards for me. Why would I want to be hungover for Thanksgiving exactly? My mom would be furious, first of all, and second, just no. I want to enjoy my Thanksgiving meal to the best of my abilities haha.
Since there were a few days lost here on the blog, I’ll be making it up to you guys in a very special way. Stay tuned for a giveaway<3

Here are the official campaign photos for Montazami Brand's second perfume, Black Label. We had sooo much fun creating these photos. We rented an old classic car and drove around Beverly Hills, making a pit stop at the famous Beverly Hills Hotel. The inspiration for the Black Label scent came from LA nights, when you're stepping out for a night out, and you complete your outfit with a spritz of perfume, instantly ready for the evening.
White Label and Black Label are two very distinguished scents, different from each other yet still connected. Personally, I wear my White Label during the day and Black Label before I go out at night. Black Label Eau De Parfum exudes luxury, and it is long wearing. It is the kind of scent that is a little strong when you first spray it, but then settles into your skin so nicely.
Base notes: Sandalwood, Oud
Heart Notes: Osmanthus, Patchouli
Top Notes: Geranium, Blue Violet
If you're in Sweden I highly recommend you trying Black Label next time you're at an Åhléns or Kicks (or another store that you see it at)! Between White Label and Black Label, I'm sure you guys are to fall in love with one of them!

Hi my loves!
It's our last night in Sweden, which is always bittersweet. We leave tomorrow morning! I feel like our trip flew by…
So I'm not sure if you guys have noticed recently, but my skin has been extra glow-y. Like the I can leave the house without makeup and be totally confident kind of glow-y. (Maybe you guys haven't noticed because you're only seeing me through pictures, but my family and friends have told me numerous times that my skin is looking great!) And I know why. It's all thanks to my new skincare routine from Bioclarity. If you follow me on Instagram you've maybe seen the video questionnaire I did about my routine, as well as a couple posts where I talk about their line.
I 100% fell in love with their product! It could have been all mental but I swear I noticed small results even after 1 nights use. This stuff is AMAZING. And it has plant based ingredients, which I love. It's free of harsh chemicals that harm your skin, which also puts my mind at ease.
The good news is I've teamed up with them to give you guys 50% off (so it's under $15!!) with code HANNA at checkout!

Happy birthday to the best mom in the world! The funniest, smartest, kindest, and most generous person I know. I hope she had a very special birthday!
We organized a private dinner for us five at the Klitterhus restaurant, and it was nothing short of magical! It was so cozy… just us, good food, and good company, celebrating my wonderful mom!
We had three courses: 1st was a seared scallop dish a mashed potato purée, 2nd was a seared halibut with boiled mini potatoes, chanterelles, and fried beet chips, and 3rd was a white chocolate ice cream with a creme brûlée mouse on top of a chocolate ganache. We drank buttery Chablis to start and ended with a nice Italian red wine. Our bellies were full and our hearts were happy as we walked out of the restaurant. And that's the way it should be

You guys, it was so nice meeting you the other day at our meet and greet! Thank you to everyone who came out and said hi.. it really meant a lot to Sara and I. Here are a few pictures from throughout the day, with some of the sweetest people ever!
We're not in Helsingborg anymore, we left around 3 pm to come to Ängelholm for my Mormor's party she threw for a pre-birthday celebration for my mom! When all of the guests went home it (of course) turned into a dance party (typical Montazami fashion) and it's now 2 am and were still hangin around the kitchen table talking. Quality family time if you ask me
