Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!
Something that I am really excited about is that Austin and I have decided to make our own Instagram account, @neverwouldihavethought to post fun and interesting pictures of us as a couple. We got inspired to do this from yesterday’s photoshoot that we modeled in together. Everyone was saying how great we photographed together and had great chemistry in front of the camera (and real life hehe) and I was sittin’ over there like YEAHH I’M IN LETS MAKE AN INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT haha.
We want the @neverwouldihavethought account to show our relationship in a positive and inspiring way. Can you guess why we chose that account name?! More on that later ;)
Here are some behind the scenes photos of our photoshoot with Faces Apparel yesterday. We had so much fun and I cannot wait to see the professional photos. In between takes the photographer wanted to shoot ”us being us” hugging and kissing… it felt like I wasn’t even working haha!
Say hello to the new model couple!! Today Austin and I will be modeling together for a T-shirt company called Faces Apparel. I’ve never modeled with a guy before, but it makes it so much easier that it’s my boyfriend. I think it’s going to be a fun and flirty style shoot, which is perfect for us! We tried practicing poses and all we could do is laugh haha. Hopefully the photographer wants our nonstop smiles! More pictures from behind the scenes are coming :)
Add me on snapchat (hannamonty) to see live videos from today!
I cannot contain my excitement about the new apartment Sara and I just moved into. It is so perfect! We found it, leased it, and moved in all in about two weeks! It was and still is crazy with all of the hard work moving from OC to LA, but we are so happy here in Playa del Rey! The apartments were just built in June so everything is brand new and beautiful!
We haven’t finished decorating so I don’t want to show the whole apartment just yet, but here is a little sneak peek of how we’re decorating! We have a lot of mirrored furniture with accents of silver and gold. So far it has been such a fun project to decorate it with our own style and touch!
What do you guys think of it so far?! I cannot wait to show you guys the rest of it as it all comes together…<3
Now it’s Friday evening and my girlfriends are coming over to see the new place and have a glass of wine on the balcony. After that we’re going out in the Santa Monica/Venice area tonight!

Post-photoshoot happy hour with Sara!
This week had some very high highs and low lows. From Copper’s ear getting bitten off to Sara and I getting an apartment together in LA, this week has seen it all! More info on our new apartment coming soon!
One of the photos I put in Emma’s going away party slideshow! See the full video here!
My little baby Coppsy recovering after surgery. She had to get stitches after another dog bit a chunk out of her ear :(
Sipping on some tea by the pool
We got SO much rain this week!! Our backyard is looking greener than ever :)
Austin and I yesterday at Emma’s going away party! We always seem to coordinate outfits hehe
Jalepeño margaritas and mint mojitos!
Emma dyed her hair blonder! It looks amazing on her!
Another pic I found of us back in the day! Naatten går tunga fjättttt, runt gård och stuvaaaaa.
Kring jord som sol’n förgät, skuggorna ruva. We know every word to Swedish Christmas songs!
Driving in a convertible, working out, sunbathing, clubbing, playing at the beach: all these activities perfectly describe summer. But summertime is never complete without great music. Here are some of the songs that have been at the top of my list this season! Feel free to follow my account on Spotify: hannamontazami to see my playlists! The songs shown below are from my ”Summer Bangers” playlist. What are your favorite songs at the moment?
I’ve been wanting to do an outfit post with this MinkPink skirt ever since I got it a month ago! The black and white mosaic print is everything, and I love how it opens with the two slits! I paired it with my black velvet crop top from Topshop, San Marina open toe booties, Rebecca Minkoff silver clutch, and Dolce & Gabbana glasses. Get my silver ”name” necklace here!
This is the perfect skirt to wear when its windy outside to get that nice flow and to show off the legs a little bit!
STEP 1: Hold all of your hair in your hand as if you were about to put it in a low ponytail.
Your lives just got a whole lot easier! Well, I hope they will. I wanted to share one of my hair tricks that I’ve been using for yearssss. I honestly don’t know where I would be without it. Well, probably in the same place I am now with ugly hair instead haha.
This is perfect if you have thick and ”puffy” hair like I do, but it’s also perfect for everyone that wants to avoid bedhead. I call it the twisty bun. I put my hair in a twisty bun every night before I go to bed, and I wake up with tame and bouncy hair! I put together a 5 step HOW-TO so you guys can copy it!
STEP 2: Twist your hair and keep twisting until the entire ponytail is twisted.
STEP 3: Bring your twisted ponytail around towards the left and then under, keeping the ponytail twisted as you go. Do this circle motion until you reach the end of your ponytail.
STEP 4: tuck the end piece of your ponytail underneath the twisty bun and push through (it might be able to stay as a bun on its own without a hair band at this step)
STEP 5: Twist your rubber band around the bun 2 times. (It should be somewhat loose)
This is what the twisty bun should look like!
And this is what it will look like in the morning! I either wear it like this or curl some more pieces to spruce it up!
Yesterday I woke up with chlorine still in my hair from the day before and dry ends so I decided to apply a hair mask! I used a hydrating hair mask from Hello Hair and I absolutely loved it! It’s made mostly of coconut oil, olive oil, and seed oil. When you apply it it smells like toasted coconut fresh from the oven.…. sooo yummy!
I massaged it in my scalp and combed it (with my fingers) to make sure it was distributed evenly throughout. The package says you can leave it in for 30 minutes but I left it in for 5 hours (hehe) to see maximum results. When I washed it out (after the treatment you wash your hair as you regularly do) my hair felt so smooth and soft!! I can definitely tell a difference when I look at the BEFORE and AFTER photos! There is still some oil in my hair (since my hair loves to hold on to everything) but it will be gone after another wash.
