    The Monthly Edit: March

    Spring is (very nearly) here, and we’re grateful for the promise of warmer weather and longer days ahead (especially as we practice social distancing)! Here are a few things we are loving (or looking forward to wearing) this month:

    1. Regardless of the weather you’re experiencing, our Magnolia Earrings are a fun way to incorporate a little pop of spring in your look!
    2. This Lip Glowy Balm is a cult favorite, and the light tint is perfect for days you don’t feel like putting on much makeup, but still want a little color. 
    3. The Scent Keeper was the February book for Reese’s Book Club, and it does not disappoint. It’s a quick read with great character development. 
    4. If you need a new podcast to listen to, we recommend A Beautiful Mess Podcast. Elise and Emma offer practical, helpful, and light advice for decorating, parenting, and running a business!
    5. This aerie shirt is the cutest! We’re pretty happy that tie-dye is making a comeback!
    6. If you’re looking to drink more water, but want to be mindful of waste, consider grabbing a cute reusable bottle, like this YETI tumbler!
    7. These Caslon sandals are on mega-sale, and we love the cheerful golden color!

    I'm Hiring an Assistant!

    With our impending move and the arrival or our son in late Spring, I'm looking to add another member to the EA/Lauren Loves team in the Raleigh area! If there's one thing I've learned in the last couple years of business, it's that asking for help and utilizing said help is 100% necessary. I currently have an assistant that runs all things EA social media (Hey, Melanie!) and another creative assistant that helps flesh out blog post ideas and creates many of the graphics you see here on the blog (Hey, Rachel!)! Since my current in-office assistant is in VA, I'm looking to fulfill that role with someone new! I'm seeking someone who wants to be a part of both of my businesses and is willing to do a whole host of tasks in any given day or week. There are many things that go into running a business, let alone two, so I need somebody who is willing to jump right in and get involved - from packaging up jewelry orders to rounding up sale picks to snapping an outfit photo for me! The details of the job itself can be found below, as well as how to apply.

    Title of Role: Assistant/Creative Assistant (a true number two, like Dwight Schrute)

    Hours: 10-20 hours per week, depending on needs (closer to 20 hours per week during holiday season), must be available for weekday hours -- M-F 10-5, availability around holidays

    Compensation: will be discussed at interview!

    Start Date: The goal is to start onboarding mid-late March

    Location: Our office will be located on the Southwest side of Raleigh, NC, (Cary/Apex/Holly Springs area) so you must be able to travel there on a weekly basis.

    Example of tasks you’ll be asked to do in any given day/week: Package and fulfill orders, brainstorm ideas for new curated boxes, source/create new products to be carried in the shop, round up items from a retailer sale, help execute brand collaborations, put together a flat-lay outfit photo, and more.

    Characteristics of a great candidate: Creative, organized, detail-oriented, quick learner, interest in fashion/personal style and accessories, flexible -- willing to wear many hats and jump around from task to task, someone who is excited about EA and blogging, someone that wants to be a part of a small business and helping it grow!

    Previous experience is not required, although always a benefit! Experience with: Shopify, Photoshop, Quickbooks, Photography - DSLR are all a plus! Most everything you will be tasked with will be on-the-job training.

    What I want to know about you:

    • Why you’re interested in this position and why you think you’d be a good fit
    • Relevant previous work experience, if any
    • Any photos/graphics that exemplify your personal style and creativity

    Please send your application (doesn’t have to be formal, I just want to get to know you a bit and see if you might be a good fit!) and the information to the bullet points above to hiring@elisabethashlie.com.

    (Only apply if you are local and available for weekday hours. Not currently looking to hire anyone for evenings/weekends or remote work.)

    You will hear back from me to confirm that I received your application. I will begin scheduling and conducting video (FaceTime) interviews the week of February 24th.

    What to Wear to a Wedding This Season

    The Monthly Edit: September

    Travel - Mike and I vacationed in Maui a couple of weeks ago, and I shared our travel diary on my blog. If you’re considering a trip to Maui in the future (or if you, like me, just like to read about travel in general) check it out!

    Get Excited - Our Fall Collection launches September 9, and we can’t wait for you to see the jewelry, candles, and other goods we’ve curated for autumn. Be sure to mark your calendars!

    Read - The last time we asked for book suggestions on Instagram, several of you recommended the book, “Daisy Jones and the Six.” We’re happy to report that it lived up to the hype! If you haven’t read it, grab a copy!

    Swoon - We love this creative and dreamy makeover of a carport turned covered porch on A Beautiful Mess.

    Bake - We’re huge fans of a good make-ahead recipe, and these egg, bacon, and cheese biscuits look like the perfect, easy breakfast meal.
