Mumpreneur of the Month - Elise Mendelle, Founder of Bundle-O-Joy

This month we are featuring Elise Mendelle, founder of Bundle-O-Joy and a North London mum as our mumpreneur of the month.

What is Bundle-O-Joy?
Bundle-O-Joy  is on a quest to provide pregnant women with fabulous, key piece, mix and match maternity packages without the hassle of retail store shopping and provides a maternity capsule wardrobe in one handy 'bundle'. From classic bundles of essential items, to themed bundles for sporty mums-to-be, business mums-to-be and stylish summer holiday mums-to-be, capsule maternity wardrobes are exactly what the high street is missing. Designed to give you key pieces of clothing, each Bundle-O-Joy is not only stylish and comfortable, but can be added to your existing wardrobe to create many inspiring outfits!
Bundle-O-Joy's vision is to reach pregnant women across the UK and help make pregnancy easier and more enjoyable in the form of happy, comfortable, uber stylish mummies.

North London Mums loves the simplicity of this idea and the stylish items that make up the bundles. Were we to get pregnant again, there'd be no waddling around the shops for us! We love that the bundles are already coordinated and therefore take the hassle out of finding a wardrobe that works for those difficult months when you can't fit in your old clothes but can't find nice new ones that fit.

About Elise 

Elise grew up in Canada and was originally a chiropractor. Having moved to the UK nine years ago she always dreamt of trying something new and different and went through many different ideas until she settled on the unique concept that is Bundle-O-Joy and took the bold step of starting it up.

While pregnant for the third time, Elise became frustrated with the maternity clothes on offer. They were either really cheap (and horrible) or really expensive (and a waste of money). She borrowed clothes from friends, but still found herself needing things that fit properly and made her feel good. Sound familiar?  So Bundle-O-Joy was born and Elise has been working hard at making it a success ever since.  

North London Mums asked how Elise fits her work on Bundle-O-Joy around her family and she told us a familiar tale of late nights and working whenever she can around the kids. Her hard work is obviously paying off.

Advice for other mumpreneurs or aspiring mumpreneurs

We asked Elise for her advice to others and she says:

Don't be too hard on yourself.
Accept that you will make mistakes.
Realise that you can learn from them.
Be proud of the fact that you have something that you have created, other than your children!
