emelle is a blog by Melissa Lamkin—that’s me! I’m a former magazine fashion assistant turned fashion and beauty editor turned stylist turned blogger turned marketer/content strategy director … yes, all of it.
I’ve worked for some amazing publications (Lucky Magazine, Women’s Health & Fitness, Destination Weddings & Honeymoons magazine, Charlotte Magazine, Charlotte Home & Garden, Charlotte Wedding and more…) and retailers (Neiman Marcus, Trunk Club, Brideside) and brands (Chicago Booth, Fisher Nuts, Pirate Brands, Ortega) and more. I personally like to say I’m an OG content creator… I’ve been doing this since like 2001! (Whoa.)
If you want to know about living your best life in your 40s – no kids or husband required – you’ve found the right spot. It’s pronounced Em-elle (just like my initials and my magazine bylines) and dogs (especially our sweet Jack White), my fiancee Rob (ironically unlike me he has no internet presence whatsoever), hot yoga and barre classes and a boozy Old Fashioned are a few of my favorite things.
