With my girls doing a sorority pose in La Paz, Mexico
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?!
Hi hi hello!
So Hanna and I were having a meeting with a guy from Spotify at this trendy coffee shop On Abbott Kinney called Intelligentsia. when we finished our meeting, Hanna and I decided to hangout there for a bit to get some work done.
An hour later, this French guy comes up and talks to us about our camera. Ten minutes later we come to find out he’s a street-style photographer in Paris and he asks us to shoot some photos. I was wearing the most baaaaasic casual outfit but we thought, why not?! He was the sweetest guy ever..no way we could say no. He sent us the photos last night. Turned out pretty good considering our outfits haha. 😉
Idag hade jag ett mycket intressant möte med en Social Media kille. Vi pratade bl.a. om mitt hackade instagram konto. Vi måste alla skydda oss från alla dessa hackare som är bara ute för att förstöra för andra glada människor. Fy!!! Ja ni ser att vi är utan soffa, bord, matta och annat roligt som fattas i rummet. Vi längtar efter vår nya fina gråa soffis.
Maria Jansson ha det såååå roligt på Cypern 🙂 roa er och bara njut!! Kram Maria
I got all my photos back from both my shoots from Bali and it’s so nice to look back and see them all. This shoot was a spontaneous one by the beach with an amazing Australian photographer named Glen Krohn.
The story is actually pretty funny. I was out at a restaurant with some friends in Canggu and then happen to sit next to this guy. He started talking to me and my friend was telling me how she’s seem him all over Instagram and he’s an incredible photographer. We started talking more and decided to set up a shoot for the next day. I was with one friend who does hair, the other does makeup and they both were neighbors with girls who owned their own bikini and jacket collections.
OOH such exciting things are coming up and I cannot wait to share it all with you. 🙂 Here are some of the photos that was captured by my friend Damea Dorsey for our See Ya Never photoshoot. Looking at all these photos just takes me right back to that endless summer feeling. Love it and can’t wait to go back there again one day.
And no no no that guy is not my boyfriend! He is just a friend of Nathan and Louise’s that also lives in Bali and helped with the shoot 🙂 Haha.
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.
Tack för era förslag om ett båtnamn. Jag berättade väl att vi ska döpa jollen till SeaDoodle 🙂 så istället för cheesedoodle (ostkrok) så blir det Seakrok. Kul. Kram Maria
Råbiff Tartar åt jag bland annat igår kväll nere i Dana Point Harbor. Alltså nu har vi roligt det är som en hel båtvärld har öppnat sej. Asså så mycket roligt att göra och titta på nere i vår vackra båthamn. Biffen var god och väldigt färsk.
Copper och Molly var lite rädda att vara på båten. Dom har sina egna flytvästar. Visar er nästa gång när vi är ute.
Tävling ligger och lurar likaså mycket annat spännande så fortsätt att kolla in här på sidan. Snart får ni veta!!!!! Kram Maria
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!
Såhär såg min shopping vagn ut imorse. Vi ska göra en god frukost. Sedan ska vi visa Emma båten. Ha en fin söndagskväll. Kram Maria.
