Leading Australian model Dani Bonnor, and long time friend of homebodii founder Ingrid Bonnor, is a familiar face for the homebodii brand. The beautiful model has been on many homebodii shoots and has always brought her amazing energy with her. This self-professed yogi and ocean lover is an ambassador for Wander Luxe Yoga, and an all-round positive person.
We thought it was about time that we sat down and talked to the girl beneath the homebodii garments about modelling, working with homebodii, and what she loves about being at home.
Name: Dani Bonnor
Location of Residence: Casuarina, NSW
How did you begin your career in modelling and what was your inspiration?
My dad actually put me into a modelling competition when I was just 14, I didn't win but I joined an agency from then and the rest is history! It was something I never actually gave any thought to but I am so grateful for taking on this career path. I have met so many amazingly talented and creative people along the way. It has challenged me, it has helped me grow, it has allowed me to travel and it has pushed me outside my comfort zones. I wouldn't change a thing.
What has been your greatest achievement to date?
As a whole in my life, my greatest achievement would be building my dream home by the ocean. It is something I have dreamed about since I was a little girl!
What is your ultimate fashion tip?
Dress for yourself. Wear what suits you and what fits your body shape. You don't need to follow trends. You have to be confident in what you're putting on. At the end of the day you want to feel comfortable so be yourself and own it!
Describe your experience working with homebodii, and what you love about working with the brand.
Ingrid and Marianne are divine! I've modelled with Ingrid in the past and now to work for her brand is an absolute pleasure. I'll jump at every opportunity to work with homebodii. The team are so welcoming and there's always such good energy in the studio. homebodii is so feminine and beautiful. I leave every photoshoot wanting to purchase EVERYTHING!
What item can't you live without?
My phone! I use it for absolutely everything!
How would you describe your morning ritual?
Coffee, yoga practice or walk with my pup, breakfast smoothie then work! It doesn't happen everyday, depending on my work schedule, but I try to do this routine as much as possible. It is so important to move the body in some way everyday and eat a wholesome healthy diet. It keeps me balanced all round.
How would you describe your bedtime ritual?
I don't really have a ritual! I find myself falling asleep in front of the TV a lot of the time!
What is your favourite thing about being at home? Home is my comfort place. I love coming home after a big day, having a long hot shower, cup of tea and snuggling on the couch with my pup and man. Bliss! It's the little things!
What book are you currently reading?
At the moment I am actually reading a lot about yoga. The anatomy and physiology/principles/history etc. I started just over a year ago and have immersed myself in it!
Which homebodii garment best suits your personality?
Oh there's so many that suit my personality and style I'll narrow it down to two! The Helena long lace robe and the Sofia lace romper. A little sophistication mixed with a little playfulness.
