NOUS & KELSI KENDEL

We found out recently Kelsi Kendel's IG account. We just loved her !
So we decided to let this wonder mom test one of our bags. 
She chose the Tiquetonne in Camel pebble leather, a large bag to gather the whole family's stuff and accompany her in all her adventures as a woman. 
 
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF ? WHAT IS IMPORTANT IN YOUR LIFE ? PAST, PRESENT OR FUTURE ?

I am a "yes girl." I love trying new opportunities and have FOMO so I am usually up for anything, which has led me to lots of interesting places over the years!
My family is most important to me, as well as their happiness and my own. I do my best to let my kids be themselves. I want them to have a happy childhood, free to be who they are!

TELL US ABOUT YOUR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT? WHY THIS ACCOUNT? SINCE WHEN ?
I started blogging in 2014. I have always been "that girl," that loves to share her outfits, fav beauty products, and recipes, so it was only natural that I do so on a larger scale. The whole world of blogging and social media intrigued me as soon as I discovered it. Since then, I've evolved to a lifestyle content creator, sharing a little bit of everything from family and motherhood, to home renovations, and my original loves- fashion and beauty. 

WHAT PERSONAL OR PROFESSIONAL PROJECTS DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT ?      
 
 I recently launched an online course through my Bossy Panties business. It's all about branding, building, and growing your business on social media. I partnered with my talent manager, Jordan to share all of our knowledge and help other women level-up their businesses. I have also been thinking about moving into the YouTube space and VLOGGING.


WHAT IS YOUR DAILY MOMMY ROUTINE ?
I work outside of the home, so I am typically out of the house while most of my family is still sleeping on weekdays. On days off, I revel in the slow mornings, I love morning cuddles with my kids and coffee in bed. My husband is the breakfast guy so you can find him in the kitchen making waffles and pancakes.

WHAT'S ARE THE BEST EVENING FOR YOU ? 

In the evenings, I love my downtime to just chill and unwind. I enjoy watching trash TV like the Real Housewives and the Bachelor. Bubble baths are another way I relax. And Girl's Nights might just be my favourite way to spend free time. 

TELL US ABOUT THE PLACES WHERE YOU LIVE. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE PLACES ? TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD ? 

I live in Saskatoon, SK, which is Western Canada. It is actually called the Paris of the Prairies because it is so beautiful. Our city is built around the South Saskatchewan River and is known for it's 7 bridges. Winters are unbearably cold, but picturesque. I swear we have some of the most beautiful skies and sunsets in the world. We recently moved to an older neighbourhood that I love, close to where my husband and I both grew up. We are near the river and love spending time down there. 

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE PLACES TO TRAVEL ? FOR A WEEKEND OR FOR A LONG VACATION ? 
For quick weekend trips, we often head to the our families cabins at the lake. For longer vacations, Southern California (Palm Springs, LA, San Diego) is our go-to. But I dream of visiting more exotic destinations as well. 

COULD PARIS BE A DESTINATION THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO VISIT ?
Paris definitely tops my list when it comes to dream travel destinations. I would love to do a European tour over several weeks one day!

WHICH WOMEN OR MEN INSPIRE YOU ? WHY OR WHY NOT ? 
  
I am inspired by people that work hard, that are relatable, and different. I am drawn anyone who is not boring and takes chances. My mom inspires me, Jillian Harris, and Oprah, to name a few.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE ?    
  
My style is always changing.  I love to try new trends and make brave choices. Overall, I would consider myself a casual dresser. Although I enjoy getting glammed up.  I love to accessorize with statement jewellery, shoes, and handbags. 

WHAT DOES BEING A MOM MEAN TO YOU ? COMPLETE OUR SENTENCE : MOTHER'S DAY IS A SPECIAL DAY FOR ME BECAUSE...

It's a day to celebrate mother figures in our lives, recognize them, a reminder to tell them how much we love them, and make them feel special. Of course we should do this every single day but it's a nice reminder and chance to let them know we care. I also just love dedicating time to spend with my family, which happens on Mother's Day.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR COLLABORATION WITH NOUS & PANAME ! 

I was thrilled to partner with Nous & Paname, as our styles align well. They celebrate moms and allow us to remain true to our style while also being a mother. I love their accessories. The quality and designs are timeless and gorgeous.
