James Bond Wears Vuarnet in Spectre Film

 |  August 9th, 2015

James Bond (actor Daniel Craig) has a lot of equipment that suits his style, including Omega watches and Aston Martin cars. Now, the character has updated his sun specs – donning a pair of vintage Vuarnet sunglasses in the new movie Spectre.

The styles were enough to bring out the Warrior Woman in everyone. The…

As a child I grew up with the idea that my dad was this super human who could do everything that I couldn’t. Who could answer my thousands of questions. The older I grew, the more I realized how much my dad did for us. He wasn’t just a full time father. He actually had a life outside of home. He went to work and dealt with issues that involved people other than our family. He had a life prior to just the 5 of us. A childhood, with…
