The best part of Living in Yellow is, you. We’re here to represent you, learn from you, empower you and celebrate you! Over the summer we started brainstorming how we could bring more diversity, inclusivity and body positivity to LIY. In order to create an environment that is more inclusive, representative and welcoming to women everywhere, we have had the honor of welcoming 8 women from all walks of life [including Skye and Allison that you may already know!] who represent a full picture of our community. We are so thrilled to announce the Living in Yellow Ambassador Program. We are so excited for you to meet them, connect with them, and welcome them with the kindness and grace you have shown the Living in Yellow team. Since you’ll be seeing a few of these new faces popping up around here, we’re taking a moment to formally introduce the amazing women that make up the LIY Ambassadors. So without further ado, let’s meet the ladies…

Hi all! My name is Lisa. My husband and I have a beautiful blended family that keep us busy & laughing. I’m the Director of Development for a nonprofit in my community and love sharing our story and advocating to those we serve. In my downtime I enjoy walking our sweet pup Ellie in our historic neighborhood, sipping craft beer, and searching fashion blogs. I love getting lost in a good book, love adventures with my hubby, and also love live music!

Hello, I’m Sthefany! I am originally from El Salvador, the tiniest country in Central America, but moved to Indiana when I was 12 years old. Ever since then I’ve had a passion for traveling and have made an effort to discover new places every year. Aside from traveling, I enjoy spending time with my family, furry child, and of course shopping!

Hi! I’m Ashley. I have 3 daughters, 2 bonus kids (a boy & a girl) & a sweet little grandson. They keep me & my partner, Steven, on our toes! I’m a design consultant & scheduler for a growing natural stone fabrication company & have helped hundreds of clients complete their dream spaces over the last decade. When I’m not working or hanging with the family, I’m busy creating my perfect eclectic home or at the gym throwing weights around. I also love traveling, my plants, all things vintage, & binge watching something with my honey.

My son is attending IUSB this fall, and my daughter is playing varsity volleyball and travel volleyball, which keeps me very busy traveling the country watching her play. I am very lucky to have met an amazing man who is thoughtful, loving and supportive! I have learned to love myself again, and in return made ME a priority. I have loved blogging the tall portion of LIY for the past 2 years, and look forward to what the future holds!

Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
