TODAY’S LOCATION

   
    
 
Victoria Beach, Laguna Beach

Striking beauty.  Is this place really where I get to live?! I was feeling so blessed watching the sunset this afternoon.  I’m so thankful that I get to live in such a beautiful place.

These were some quick photos I took during my photoshoot today! I had two bikinis to shoot so I met up with my photographer friend Isaac right before the sun went down. We caught one of the most AMAZING sunsets I’ve seen in all my life.  Like we’re talking cotton candy skies times a billion! A sight like that will stay with me forever.  The photos are gunna be awesome and I can’t wait to show you guys ūüôā

Happy Easter and Glad Påsk!

I was so excited to wear my new white top and skirt for Easter Sunday.  It was a perfect outfit for today, at brunch and on the boat.  Get the top here and the skirt here (contains adlinks)

This morning’s brunch consisted of eggs benedict, fresh papaya with lime, and¬†mimosas. ¬†So yummy! ¬†We decorated the table with my mom’s beautiful Fyrkl√∂vern tableware collection called ”Moments by Maria”. ¬†The soft pink and silver accents made it perfect for the occasion.

After breakfast, all of us (except my mom bc she was busy filming) went down to the boat to spend the day on the water. ¬†My dad was trying to teach¬†Nicho how to drive the boat and Copper was shaking like a leaf SO SCARED haha. ¬†But Copper has learned to love the boat… she was looking for her seal friends all day and she was so excited when she finally saw them! ¬†She must have been a seal in her past life because she has a true bond with them and she looks exactly like one haha.

Debating titling this post as 1001 Ways to Pose With Your Towel haha.

But I have to say… circle beach towels are IN. ¬†I took mine to the beach the other day and just loved it. ¬†It has a total picnic vibe. ¬†Like criss-cross apple sauce eating sandwiches and drinking lemonade with your friends kinda vibe. ¬†AND it’s perfect for two, in case you’re looking for some romance a la playa ūüėČ

This one is called the squiggle towel from The Sandy Nomad (find here)

So yeah, this happened!!!

I have no shame when it comes to fan-girling over these two Jenners. ¬†I’ve seen Kylie before at the Cosmpolitan 50th Birthday Party (see that post here)¬†but it was still just as cool to see her again, and this time with Kendall! ¬†

Yesterday Amanda and I went to their Kendall and Kylie launch for Nordstrom luncheon at the Chateau Marmont. ¬†It was a wonderful afternoon at the outdoor penthouse suite overlooking LA. ¬†It was just as pretty as it sounds. ¬†If you guys saw on my snapchat (hannamonty), you noticed that there were LITERALLY less than 30 people at this private luncheon. ¬†If you’re wondering how the heck we got invited to something like this, its because Amanda won a raffle from Nordstrom, and she was allowed to bring a plus one! ¬†Shout out to Amanda for inviting me to such a special event…. I owe her one.

You can still see my whole day with Kendall and Kylie on my Snapchat, but if you’re reading this too late, I will just give you a play-by-play here on the blog.

WHAT I WORE: burnt orange wrap dress from NA-KD (shop it here) // shoes by RAYE (find here) // body chain and rings by Kendra Scott (find here)

So right when we arrived, we were greeted with champagne and rosé along with a number card for our picture with the Jenners.

We mingled around until it was our turn, admiring their collection on a live display, noticing Kylie’s bff Jordynn Woods in the corner of the room, and even sparking¬†conversation with the head honchos of Nordstrom (huge deal!!).

We took some cute photo booth pictures with Kendall and Kylie.  They both look amazing in person, and they seemed super sweet.

We all sat down for lunch, nibbling on farmer’s market vegetable crudit√© for appertizer followed by a kale and quinoa salad and an amazing chicken dish. ¬†Their desserts were ahhhmazing. ¬†Amanda and I ate the whole plate to calm our nerves haha.

As the end of the lunch neared, I got up to go to the bathroom, only to find Kylie and Kendall right behind me getting ready to leave. ¬†I was thinking SH*T! I haven’t given them their Montazami Brand gifts yet, so I RAN back to the table and gave their packages to their manager Liz (lol about knowing who¬†Liz is because of¬†KUWTK). ¬†I gave them both a downtown crop top and a Venice Muscle tee¬†(shop those pieces here).

And as I was busy getting their MB stuff, Amanda was right next to them waiting in line for the bathroom and they were making plans to go to The Nice Guy, which is an Italian restaurant in West Hollywood that every celeb and their mother goes to.

Overall it was a super fun afternoon and I met a bunch of cool and down-to-earth women.

PS do you spy Miley Cyrus’ sister Brandi in the photo with Amanda and I? ūüėõ
