Staff Profile | Lauren de Luca
Meet Lauren (better known as Lozzy), Olli Ella’s Global Logistics Coordinator. Lozzy works from our Byron Bay office and despite being in charge of some pretty serious stuff behind the scenes, this girl is somewhat a jack of all trades! In her spare time, Loz also works as a professional makeup artist, so naturally we recruited her talents (again) for hair and makeup on our WARES campaign shoots. Keep reading to learn a little more about our most multi-talented team member and why we love her!
How long have your worked for Olli Ella and what is your role?
I am just coming up to my first lap around the sun with Olli Ella! I am the Global Logistics Coordinator. I work with our suppliers to coordinate the importing of stock to our three global warehouses. I also work closely with our warehouse, customer service team and online manager to make sure we have appropriate systems in place for our customers to receive their orders with ease.
What what was your inspiration when doing the makeup look on the WARES campaign shoot?
I really wanted the makeup to be as fresh faced and natural as possible, but with a classic 'English Rose' vibe. The WARES collection captures the everyday woman, so I wanted to ensure that we captured an effortless look.
What does a day in the life of Lauren look like?
I live in Kingscliff which is about a 40 minute drive from the office, so to make the drive to work enjoyable I usually listen to a podcast and sip a cup of tea on the way. When I get to work, I start off by browsing my emails and making a list of priorities for the day. I have to be mindful of the different time zones that I work with so I break up my day that way. Mid-morning I like to go for a walk to one of our local coffee shops - Byron makes great coffee and this is a really great way for me to regroup. I usually end my day with a boxing class or a walk to the beach.
You’re one busy gal - how do you like to spend your weekends?
My weekends can be filled with anything from wedding makeup, markets, drives to Brisbane to see family or drinks with friends. I don’t sit still for very long! I also love booking road trips and flights to explore our beautiful country over the weekends.
What is your favourite thing about having a side-gig?
I have always been artistic and creative, and I love that I get to make a bit of extra travel money by doing something I love on the weekends! I used to work as a full-time makeup artist, and when it is my only source of income I didn’t enjoy it as much as when I did it for fun.
What are your top 5 favourite products?
What is your go-to Olli Ella goody?
The Apple Basket is by far the one I use the most! It’s perfect for little plants, hoarding stationery on my desk or to have at home filled with cosmetics and hair scarves!
