A few months ago, we shared a day in the life of our founder, Charity, for International Women's Day. We had such a lovely response from this, so we thought you might like to see what other members of our small team get up to.
First up - meet Emily. If you follow us on Instagram you will have seen her rather a lot before! She’s the one giving you updates on what’s happening at Green Tulip behind the scenes.
Emily also photographs all of our beautiful products, and we also lean on her as our gifting expert! She is fantastic at coming up with gift ideas and puts together the gift guides and collections on Green Tulip to help our customers find the perfect gift.
Here's a little insight into what she gets up to in 24 hours...
Morning pick me-up
I try to start the morning with a lively mint tea before scrapping the teenager out of bed and onto the school bus.
I get to work and make a coffee, then another. Charity and I have a brief catch up and make a plan for the day. There’s always so much going on, so organization is key.
Let's get started!
After I’ve checked my emails and posted on our social media, I might make a start on product photography, could be chocolate, could be scrubbing brushes. I look at the brand and the products and decide what style is needed for our website. I like that every task is different and that is perfect for the way my mind works – I’m not a very ‘routine’ person.
Adding a personal touch
Another job I relish is handwriting our customers personalised messages on our free postcards. You see a whole range of emotions – it’s actually a privilege to be part of a customer's gifting experience, although being an old softy, some can get me a bit emotional.
My passion for products
After a chatty lunch in the sun (if it's out) I will spend time processing photos or work on graphics for postcards/banners for the website.
I absolutely love products so there's nothing that brings me more joy than merchandising the website, researching new brands and buying new products with Charity.
