Our operations associates are some of the busiest team members at Birchbox. They’re on the front lines talking to customers and managing orders every day, so we thought it was time to take a peek at one of their desks. Today, we grabbed a picture of Paulina’s — it’s full of her favorite polishes, treats, and the product she’s lusting after from her December box.
1. Maoz Vegetarian gift card: Maoz Vegetarian is a Birchbox team go-to for lunch. Thanks to a special someone in my life, I hold the keys to a gift card for endless falafel!
2. O.P.I.’s Jade is the New Black nail polish: Jade is the New Black is my nail polish must. Any time I can’t make up my mind about what color to wear, I always choose this pretty emerald green.
A few weeks ago, we introduced you to Ally and Emily, our brand-new operations gurus. Now we have three more to add to their ranks. These girls are the superheroes of our company and without them we’d be lost (and even more importantly, so would all your customer requests, queries, and comments). Meet the newest members of our Operations team.
Loren, Operations Associate
Hometown: Fort Lee, NJ
Fun fact: I love going to electronic shows. A few months ago a DJ at one of these shows accidentally broke my arm, yet I still keep going back!
Beauty confession: I’m obsessed with nail polish and have a blog that I (try to) update with pictures of the funk.
Currently loving: Zoya Mitzi (Mod Matte Collection), Lanza Silk Hair Serum, and Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner (Dark Brown). And watches. And maxi dresses.
Worth the splurge: An amazing perfume. And maybe an awesome polish :P
Best beauty trick: Never sleep with makeup on!
Paulina Anderson, Operations Associate
Hometown: Scottsdale, AZ
Fun fact: A couple months ago I gave up drinking coffee, and I found a new
addiction love in Guayaki’s Mate Chocolatte tea! You gotta try it!
Beauty confession: I’ve never worn foundation or colored my hair!
Currently loving: Fekkai’s Summer Hair Beach Waves spray, O.P.I.’s San Tan Tonio, and Weleda’s Gentle Cleansing Milk—I bought it this weekend and I swear that my husband has never found my face more kissable!
Worth the splurge: The perfect summer dress :)
Best beauty trick: A tiny bit of pure jojoba oil on your face as moisturizer, daily mantras, and seriously—a genuine smile!!
Jillian Rissman-Sherr, Operations Associate
Hometown: Los Angeles
Fun fact: I once found a lost dog, and it ended up being Jessica Alba’s. I’m also in the background of a paparazzi photo of Britney Spears.
Beauty confession: My mom has always picked out my perfume for me. She has good taste!
Currently loving: My Mason Pearson brush. Feels soo good!
Worth the splurge: Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel Pads.
Best beauty trick: I wear mascara every day, so I like to moisturize my eyelashes with Vaselline at night to keep them from drying out. Another eyelash tip: I coat the tops of my top lashes while looking down, and then underneath them while looking up to make them extra long.
