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!

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!

Here’s a little glimpse of TV3 press day yesterday! We got to see all of the new and current shows under TV3 and got the chance to meet a ton of the other TV3 personalities, take pictures, do interviews and so on. There are so many good shows coming up that you guys will not want to miss. My mom and Sara will be on a show called ”Mästertestarna” which is a new show where they try out new and odd inventions, like solar showers and segways, and Svenska Hollywood Fruar will be airing it’s 10th season. You’ll get to see more of the whole family, and Austin will make a little debut haha. My mom is also on Laila Bagge’s show Rum för Dig, where they will be renovating a room of my grandma’s house.
We did some TV interviews, a little Q&A with Kändis TV, and then pictures pictures pictures. I’ll be posting the TV interviews here on the blog once their published so you guys can see!

Here’s a little video of behind the scenes at our Malibu beach shoot with Chiquelle X Swimwear we did a few months ago! We just love the Chiquelle team… they are the absolute nicest. I’m so happy Sara and I got to have another photoshoot with them a couple days ago. While we were at their office we also got to shoot some NEW Montazami Brand items that will be up on our website within a couple days….. 😉 Stay tuned!
Today is press day for Svenska Hollywood Fruar! I’m going to start doing my hair and makeup now… talk soon my loves.

The weather over here in Sweden is really making it feel like Fall! Summer is almost over…. not so much for LA though haha. But how nice that I can dress for Fall for a week while I’m here. Today’s all about the black and gold, my all time favorite color combo. But please excuse my wrinkled coat. I’ve been cringing inside all day because of these damn wrinkles haha. I tried steaming it in the shower but it didn’t work (damn those Swedish hotel open-door showers) and then I tried blow drying it but with no luck, so whoops.
Hmmm we are wondering where we should make reservations for dinner tonight… we might do Riche for some classic Swedish meatballs or maybe try something new? I’m in one of those moods where you don’t know what you’re in the mood for…. 😐
PS how fricken amazing is this sun deck?!
