The other day Sara and I drove up to Malibu to shoot for Chiquelle’s new swimwear collection!! It was definitely one of the best photoshoots I’ve ever done. The Chiquelle team is just the nicest and cutest group of people you’ll ever meet. It made it even better that the swimwear was to die for… the styles are so simple yet chic and the colors are on point. I know I keep saying dusty rose this and dusty rose that, but seriously…. DUSTY ROSE. Speaking of dusty rose (again), that reminds me of one of the Montazami Brand graphic tees that is coming out soon!
Our lovely spray tans are from Organic Shimmer, a chic tanning place we just discovered on Melrose. I went in and got ”medium bronze” and I’m so happy with the color. You can see their website here (<— dusty rose 😛 )
Today was a mellow Saturday, just what I needed after a few big nights out. After our jewelry event was over, Sara and I met up with our cute cousin Niki for some lunch. We ate at The Independence in Santa Monica and I had a farmer’s vegetable salad with a salmon filet on top 🙂 Not sure if I would order it again though haha.
DUSTY ROSE / SAGE GREEN
Did you guys get a chance to see my Snapchat haul yesterday?? I showed you guys all my new pieces from NA-KD that I’m obsessing over. This dusty rose midi dress is one of them 🙂 Cute huh? I paired it with my new gorgeous bag from Strathberry.
WEARING: NA-KD DRESS HERE // DIN SKO SHOES HERE // STRATHBERRY BAG HERE // KENDRA SCOTT NECKLACE HERE
My oldest friend Madison came up to LA for the night so we’re planning on going out later 🙂 We’re going to a friend’s house to pregame and then we’ll probably end up barhopping around Santa Monica and Venice since it’s First Friday’s. This is the third night in a row that I’m going out… I’m SO tired!
Some beachy photos I took the other day! I love the color combo of the white crochet and burnt orange. This is the first crochet bikini I’ve ever owned and I’m definitely going to start wearing them more! I like how these bottoms have elastic on the sides too… it lays really nice on the skin.
SNAPCHATTERS, LISTEN IN! Today I’ll be doing a NA-KD haul on my snapchat, and I want you guys to join me! I’ll be showing my new NA-KD arrivals and trying them on for you guys. I’m also revealing a super special discount code that will be valid for 24 hours! If you’re not following me already, you can add me with username hannamonty
This morning Sara and I had a super exciting Skype meeting about a future campaign that we’re gunna be a part of. It’s gunna be so badass!! The future is looking oh so bright 🙂

How fun is this itty bitty little succulent bikini?! Yes, succulents, not asparagus. When I showed Austin this bikini he’s like ”oh cute is that asparagus??” NO babe.. it’s not haha.
I think this suit is perfect for the desert so I’m bringing it with me to Coachella. The top could even double as a crop top with high waisted shorts or a long flowy skirt…. mmhm creative juices are flowing.
Here’s a little glimpse of the gorgeous sunset we caught the other day at Victoria Beach in Laguna. Once it started getting darker, the colors got even stronger! I got all the photos from Isaac yesterday and I cannot wait to share with you guys. Those photos are coming soon 🙂

Even though Spring just ”officially” began, I’ve been in the spring mindset for awhile now. To me, spring is the season of bright flowers, fresh linen, and sunshine. Which obviously means we have to dress the part! How cute are these white dresses I found online? My favorites are numbers 3, 4, & 6. All white is so classic, but I’m definitely going to be pairing my whites with pearl greys, oranges, and pale blues this season.

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 🙂
Happy Easter and Glad Påsk!
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 Fyrklövern 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 😉
This one is called the squiggle towel from The Sandy Nomad (find here)
bikini from Meloon Pro (website 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 crudité 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? 😛
