Spring is officially here! You know what that means? An overload of lace and floral and femme coming to a BondGirlGlam.com near you.
I was feeling a little fun during this shoot and decided to put a flower in my hair, cuz why not?! Camellias are one of my absolute favorite flowers because they look like peonies but are more accessible/hardy. Something about a big bloom just gets me. Oh, and my love for flowers is definitely genetic, because my grandma (who’s currently visiting from Ukraine) literally can’t go anywhere without stopping and admiring every plant in sight. I mean, like every 10 feet. Oh, and Vienna is obsessed with flowers (and dogs and birds), so…
Speaking of compliments, my photographer Shawna told me she liked my tan, and I had to let her know that it was my first time trying self-tanner! Loved the self-tanner I went with — no smells, no stains, no streaks, and believable color. I’m definitely more of a sun goddess (I know, I know — tsk tsk), but I literally don’t know how I’d ever lay out in a bikini for longer than 10 seconds with Vienna around. So tan-in-a-bottle it’ll be for this summer.
Anyway, I hope you’re enjoying warmer temps and showing a little more skin (or soon enough). Oh, and since we’re on the topic of showing a little more skin, that reminds me that I’ve been wanting to share a great shaving hack I accidentally stumbled upon. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up some new razors, use your guy’s! Mr. Bond’s are the Mach3, and I’m not sure I’ll be going back to women’s razors after I started using them. I even use his razor that I dropped some serious bills on years ago that he never even uses (he prefers using a trimmer and leaving some stubble). Hilarious how things work out sometimes, huh?
Also, in blog news, I’ve added a Snapchat widget just to the right of this text (on a desktop view), so I’ll be updating that with things I’m currently sharing and wearing on there to make it easier to find. And just in case, it’s the same username as IG: irinabond. Hope you girls like the new feature!
