I have officially moved my blog to WWW.HANNAMONTAZAMI.COM !
It has been such a pleasure to blog alongside my mom and sister here at The Montazamis, but now it is time to take my blog to the next level, with bigger pictures and a sleek design! You guys have been such amazing and supportive readers and I am so thankful for that! I only hope that you continue reading and following my journey on my new blog.
I know this may seem a little sudden, but I couldn’t give you guys the exciting news until we officially launched it! My new blog will still have the same character and personality, just with a more professional look :) Take a look!
NOW LETS HAVE SOME FUN!!!! WWW.HANNAMONTAZAMI.COM
TBT when I used to wear a fuzzy caterpillar hair clip and thought it was cute
Ask and you shall receive… here are my fashion nightmares! These photos literally hurt my eyes haha AND I’m surprised I’m even posting them on the internet for everyone to see, but oh well!
The most embarrassing part is that a good chunk of these photos were taken fairly recently haha… Everyone’s gotta learn sooner or later I guess?! PS I would’ve had a GOLD MINE of ugly fashion nightmare photos but my computer crashed last year and I lost allllll of my photos *saddest day ever* (but I still managed to find these gems for you guys)
Washed out and fabulous. This color scheme on my skin tone is everything.
When in doubt, pair your silk skirt with a lace top ;)
Who remembers these headbands?! Hahaha ahhh… and Emma’s hat and sunnies :)
My Stagecoach outfit two years ago…. Noooo Hannaaaa!!
1, why are you wearing thick black tights with that dress and 2, why are you wearing thick black tights IN THE BOILING HOT SUN
This outfit’s not too bad… but who are you fooling trying to look natural posing on the grass in the corner of your backyard haha
This just really burns my eyes. I have no words. And real classy with the red cup -_-
This is one I like to call Summer on the top and hard rock heavy metal on the bottom
Aaaand Nicho’s ultimate fashion nightmare haha! We loved dressing him up as a girl!! At least he has a shirt underneath to look more manly ;)
I’m sure this post must’ve made you guys think about one of your own fashion nightmares… dare to tell?!

In spirit of all of the new and exciting things happening in my near future (which I cannot wait to tell you guys about), I wanted to do a throwback blog post! It’s crazy looking back at all the photos and seeing how much has changed.. cough cough PICTURE QUALITY. Take a look at what I’ve been up to this year!

Awh it’s always so fun to look back. Even the things I did only 2 months ago seems like forever ago. I’ve gotta admit some of the outfit pics I just looked through were SO BAD. I was like seriously Hanna wtf are you wearing?!!! haha.
Would it be fun to do a blog post with all of my fashion nightmares?!
Hellllooooo bloggies :)
Sometimes you just want a crunch. But not a potato chip crunch. A healthy crunch. Like SALAD! I always take advantage of when I’m in the mood for a healthy salad (let me remind you guys that 95% of the time, I’m craving fruit or sweets). So you bet I’m gunna cease the opportunity to eat that fricken salad when I’m in that 5%!
This one I just discovered from Whole Foods, and it quickly became my favorite salad option at the moment. It’s called the Shaved Brussel Sprout and Kale Slaw. It has everything you want in a salad: it’s crunchy, sweet (of course), savory, and PACKED WITH INGREDIENTS. Cause let’s be honest, no one likes a salad with two ingredients.
The salad is made with shaved brussel sprouts, chopped kale, shredded carrot, sliced almonds, chopped celery, cranberries, and a sprinkle of parmesan. The dressing is a mixture of olive oil, lemon, garlic, chili flakes, honey, basil and salt. Yummmmm. I’m definitely recreating this, or going back to the store for more.
The second pic is me with my hands in the shape of a heart because I <3 this salad.
It was one of those ”get over here and take a selfie with me I found amazing lighting” kinda moments haha. Never expect us not to snap a pic in some good ass lighting.
Now for a more serious and emotional thought… Sara and I have always been very close as sisters. It wasn’t until we started the Montazami Brand that we created a new relationship with each other, as business partners. We agree on a lot of things but we are completely different in the way that we handle our professional lives. We’ve definitely butt heads this year working so closely together (and maybe because we’re full-on roomies in our own apartment now). Tears have been shed and there’s been some arguments, but to be honest it would be weird if that wasn’t happening. Shit happens, it’s normal.
One way we settle out our frustrations are through meetings, where we put everything out on the table and try to come up with a solution to fix it. It’s hard sometimes, but always worth it afterwards.
These conversations not only teach us how to work better alongside one another but to strengthen our relationship as business partners, roommates, and most importantly, sisters. Family is everything, and I’m so grateful for what I have!
Ahoyyyy matey :)
We are officially BOAT OWNERS! This is literally a dream come true and I can barely contain my excitement! I’m looking forward to spending a lot of quality time with family and friends on the water. We will create so many memories together here :)
The name of the boat is a Sea Ray Sun Dancer 310 and its year 2016. Can you guys guess what we are going to name it??
Everything is brand new and beautiful, and it definitely has that new boat smell :) Sorry I couldn’t get a good picture of the whole boat.. it was a little hard with the filming crew there (see my mom’s blog for a picture of the whole boat). But we had a great first day of filming for SHF and I am so pumped for this season. It’s going to have a lot of surprises. Who else is excited?!
I couldn’t be happier that I have the Canon camera back again! Sara took it to Sweden and it was veryyyyyyyy depressing not having it this whole last week!! I have so many exciting things happening very soon and I cannot wait to share with you guys!
Here’s a sneak peek into my day, from breakfast to puppy greetings to birthday celebrations for Nicho (is anyone else shocked by the fact that he is already seventeen?!)
We start the first day of filming for Svenska Hollywood Fruar tomorrow! We are sooooo excited for this season <3
How cute is this sign?! So pinterest-y and so true haha.
One of my usual breakfast orders: steel cut oatmeal with fresh berries (and I add blueberry jam for extra sweetness) and a small cappuccino!
Molly got a fresh haircut so she was looking smaller (and cuter) than ever!
This is the present I got for Nicho’s 17th birthday. A John Elliott & Co T-shirt.
What are your guys’ plans this week?
I think anyone who watched the MTV Video Music Awards last night can agree that it was a complete and utter disaster (except for Tori Kelly and Justin Bieber’s amazing performances!) As if it wasn’t doomed enough when they announced Miley Cyrus was hosting it this year, the star-studded night’s fashion game (or lack thereof) only made things worse. Let’s be honest it was all of Miley’s looks that were competing for Worst Dressed of the night!
Scroll down towards the bottom to see my favorite looks of the night :)
Come on Tyga.
Not sure about the pockets on Kim‘s dress but I always love how she and Kanye coordinate looks!
I actually loved Serayah‘s all white serraded fringe dress. I think she pulled it off!
This might have been my favorite look of the night, Chrissy Teigen in Marchesa. She always looks so effortlessly beautiful.
What were your favorite and least favorite looks of the night??
YEP! I saw all of them in one night: Selena Gomez, Taloy Swift, and Justin Timberlake all performed their hit songs and they were amazing! That was Selena’s FIRST TIME performing ”Good For You” in front of an audience, and the first time Justin Timberlake performed since he was a dad!
I went with Austin, his older sister and her friend. We were singing along the entire night! Every concert I go to reminds me that I need to go to them more…
Hello beautiful people :)
I can’t tell you guys how good it feels to finally say that I’ve found a lip balm that actually works. I’ve dealt with chapped lips for years now, and it has always been one of my insecurities that I couldn’t fix. About six months ago I asked my dermatologist what he recommended for my chapped lips (he suggested Aquaphor), and I tried using it for a few months, but it still didn’t work. My lips were still dry and chapped!
A few days ago I was in the makeup department at Nordstrom and one of the makeup artists suggested I try La Mer Lip Balm. I have always loved La Mer products, but tended to stay away from their products because it was too pricey $$$. But for this, I said what the hell. He said it worked wonders on his chapped lips, so I needed to try it out and see for myself. It seemed a little silly to spend $55 on chapstick, but I was willing to take that risk. I’ve been using the lip balm every night before bed only for a few days now and I can already tell a huge difference! I wake up with smooth and soft lips. I’m also drinking lots of water to keep them hydrated throughout the day.
I wonder why my lips were so chapped in the first place? Could it be that I need to drink more water or that I wear too much lipstick? Probably both haha. Speeeeaking of lipstick, I added a new color to the collection. It ‘s name is Retro by MAC. It’s in the same family as Twig (the color that I wear everyday), but it has slightly more reddish tones.
And believe it or not, I just became a lipliner user. I don’t know why I haven’t used it before? When you wear lipstick as much as I do, sometimes you’ll notice that it can get quite messy at times. To avoid smudges and over drawn lipstick smudges, I got the Chicory lip liner by MAC. I’ll probably only use the liner when I’m going to an event, dinner, photoshoot, etc. Probably not to the grocery store or to run errands hehe (Yes I wear lipstick to the grocery store).
Taylor Swift concert is tonight… can’t wait!
