2020 has kicked off and we’re back into the full swing of things, including our weekly LW Babe of the Week features. We’re excited to introduce you to Danielle Lamon, as we get to know a bit about here below…
Full name: Danielle Lamon
Nickname: Dani (Nelly, if you are my mom)
Hometown: Cape Town
Day job: Account Manager for a tech company
Likes: Fitness, fashion, dogs, dance-floors, music, the beach, quality time with those closest to me and sweets.
Dislikes: Spiders, sleeping in, disrespect for time, the dark and did I mention spiders?
Special Talents: I was a ballet dancer from the age of 4 up until the age of 21. I can scrapbook like a queen and would like to think baking counts as a special talent
Give us a quick introduction to Danielle?
Wow…for someone who would be termed as very talkative, I really sat here with nothing to say on this question. I am a very excited, emotional and impatient woman (I used to try and convince myself I was patient but what a lie). My second home is the gym and those closest to me, including my pets, are the most important things in my life.
What where some of the highlights of your festive season?
Christmas was very special as it was one of my first times celebrating it with my partner and our precious four month old puppy! Binge watching The Walking Dead and still continuing as we have two seasons to go out of ten.Planning the ultimate outfit and dancing my heart out on the Pacha Dance-floor (I could dance my life away).
How did you see in the New Year, and what are you looking forward to most in 2020?
I was fast asleep long before midnight as I saved all my energy for the dance floor on New Years Day. 2019 was a very draining year in all aspects but also the year that taught me many lessons and growth. 2020 is going to be the year to watch all those lessons become something very positive.
Are you one for resolutions or have you got things planned to a T?
I have things planned to a T, so my resolutions for 2020 were already happening in 2019. I am OCD about planning my life, both a blessing and a curse at times.
What does the average day in the life of Danielle consist of?
Up at 4:30 for cardio. A day in the office until around 15:30. Back to gym for my weights session, followed with fetching my four legged baby from creche (yes, he goes to creche). Home consists of packing and prepping for the day to follow and if I do not take my time showering I get 30 minutes before bed to rest or watch something before we start all over again.
Finish the sentence: Life in a bikini is…?
What was the experience of shooting with Epix Shoots for this feature like?
It was the first proper shoot I have ever done and Shaun is absolutely amazing at making you feel like the goddess of the universe. It was so much fun and he teaches you a lot along the way, including doing the poses himself!
How would you best explain your ultimate photo shoot?
I do not think I can quite pin point the ultimate photo shoot but the only thing that comes to mind is the feeling behind the ultimate photo shoot, and that is all about the self confidence you feel in that moment.
If you could be anything or anyone for just one day, what/ who would it be and why?
Do not judge me but just for one selfish day I would be Khloe Kardashian. Have you seen the size of her sweet cupboard? Could I also come back with some of her closet?
Which movie star do you think would best portray you in a movie?
Amber Heard in Aquaman.
What do you like to do with you down time?
My down time will always involve the following and all my favourite things:
-Time at the gym because it means I do not need to rush any where and can take my time.
-Breakfast dates, my favourite meal of the day!
-Time spent on the beach.
-Time with my boyfriend and our fur baby at home.
Leave us with some words of wisdom as we kick off 2020?
Invest in yourself as you are the most expensive thing you will ever own.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
New year? Traveling.
Good times? Dance floors.
Turn on? Scent.
Turn off? Dirty nails.
Addictive? Liquorice all sorts.
