Q & A Meet Els Keymeulen
Meet Els ... fashion director slash natural beauty. Mom of 2 of the cutest kids who already have her sense of style. If you haven’t read her column ‘Anything Els’ in Feeling magazine yet then I strongly suggest you go and grab a copy. They’re so funny and sound so familiar, they’re the kind of stories you can’t help but think: “Oh yes, been there, done that.”
The women loves fashion and not ashamed to admit she would go far to save a pair of Gucci slides. (I feel you Els)
It’s the best coffee break during your busy day.
