Let's Fiesta with Kristel at our Kendra Scott Party!

Our chat with Kristel Gonzaba, local blogger, sneaker designer and co-host of our get-Fiesta-ready party at Kendra Scott THIS Friday.

Kristel Gonzaba, the local blogger behind Stylin Brunette and sneaker designer, is co-hosting our get-Fiesta-ready party at Kendra Scott Quarry Village THIS Fri, June 11. You're invited for cocktails, to-go sips and sweets, and the first chance to see the new limited edition collection(Gifts for the first arrivals!) But, first, get to know Kristel... 

You're a lifestyle blogger. Three tricks for great Instagram photos.
1. Always try to use natural lighting
2. Frame your subject
3. Take a few photos from different angles 

Best thing about Instagram stories.
The swipe up feature! 

You're the co-host of our private party at Kendra Scott THIS Friday, June 11. Complete this sentence: Jewelry can make someone... 
Stand out.

We know where you’ll be celebrating this Friday - how else will you celebrate Fiesta this year? 
I will be attending Viva Botanica at the Botanical Garden, NIOSA and Fiesta Kings Cup Polo Party. 

Favorite Fiesta traditions.
I love the Fiesta spirit, San Antonio is transformed and comes to life with color and tradition during the month of Fiesta!! It is wonderful.

First-ever Fiesta memory.
Making the Fiesta floats out of shoe boxes in elementary school and then having a parade with them for our parents. 

First thing you do when you wake up, last thing at night?
First thing I do when I wake up is check my phone and try to answer any DMs or emails. I am one of those gals that likes to have zero notification alerts on my phone apps. Last thing I do before bed is my skin care routine and use witch hazel on my face and neck. 

People would be surprised to learn this about me…
I have never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 

Neighborhood you call home and why you love it? 
River Rock Ranch, I love how everyone will wave to you when you drive or walk past. I also adore how quiet it is! 

Give us three words to describe your personal style...
Ladylike, preppy, colorful 

Best place in town for an Instagram post?
Little Em’s Oyster Bar.

TV series I’m currently addicted to? 
Bridgerton! So ready for season 2!!!

Two emojis I use all the time.
Hearts eyes and both hands up.

Three local businesses I love supporting.
Coco + Jase , Collectible Brooks, Caley Cosmetics

Where would you wear the new Kendra Scott capsule collection, pictured below, which you're helping to launch at our party this Friday
I absolutely would wear the blue Denise Statement Earrings to the Viva Botanica at the Botanical Garden and the Fiesta Kings Cup Polo Party. 

Beyond Fiesta, on what local restaurant patio would you wear this collection?
The new Domingo Restaurant on the River Walk.

Join Kristel and get Fiesta-ready with us at Kendra Scott Quarry Village! 
Our first 25 guests get a gift!
