Get to Know #AerieREAL Role Model Jenna Kutcher

Jenna Kutcher has always been #AerieREAL, but now – she’s officially an #AerieREAL Role Model!

You could say Jenna’s new title has been a long time coming. This entrepreneur, podcaster and girl next door ALWAYS keeps it #AerieREAL, and she’s been part of the Aerie family for as long as we can remember. Read on to see how Jenna has grown with Aerie and why we can’t wait to see what else she has to share as our newest role model.

 

You’ve been part of the #AerieREAL family for quite a while, what are you looking forward to sharing with our community as an #AerieREAL Role Model?

Let me first say: PINCH ME. I am so, so thankful for this opportunity and yes, it’s been years in the making. As a Role Model, I want to empower women to know that they are never alone and always enough. If a girl living in small-town Minnesota can “make it” as an entrepreneur, a dreamer, and now an AerieREAL Role Model, so can you. At the end of the day, I’m just a normal girl with a mission to change the world and I sincerely pray to provide a relatable example for women while always promising to keep it real. Life isn’t always perfect, self-love isn’t always easy, but there is so much power in simply showing up and I promise to do that!

Get to Know #AerieREAL Role Model Jenna Kutcher

Entrepreneur, podcaster, boss babe – you keep busy! How do you do it?

It takes a village! Can I just say that I have the most amazing team of women surrounding me? Over the last seven years I’ve grown a business and a brand that serves hundreds of thousands of humans every single day and I could never do it alone. I’m always dreaming, always thinking of ways to serve others, and I have the most amazing community around me helping make it all happen! What started as a means of escaping a windowless office corporate job at the age of 23 has turned into an empire with so many different facets. It’s such a gift to wake up and do what I love every single day!

What’s a typical day in the life of Jenna Kutcher?

Should I really tell you? You’re going to think I’m the most boring person on the earth, but here goes! We wake up with the sun (no alarm clocks for the Kutchers) and usually lay in bed and talk about how cute our dogs are…. yes, they sleep with us. Drew (my husband) and I head to the gym or I’ll go on a walk with the dogs and listen to the podcast. Then I get to work for the day either at a local coffee shop or from the couch! We try to break for lunch together and for a midday dog walk, working from home is such a blessing. Then Drew will make us dinner (thank goodness I married a man that loves to cook and clean) and we will snuggle up on the couch and watch a little riveting television. We are obsessed with shows like The Bachelor, MTV The Challenge, Project Runway, hilarious TV shows that are so far from our real life. We walk the dogs before we head to bed and then read before we fall asleep. Our lives are simple and slow but I love it, it’s either that or I’m traveling the world for work and so they balance each other out quite well!

What makes you #AerieREAL?

I’m not afraid to talk about the reality and the challenge of what it looks like to have to choose self-love every day – let me tell you, it’s not easy. I pride myself on not just showing the highlight reel but on keeping it real. The internet has walked through some of life’s greatest triumphs with us but they’ve always witnessed some of our greatest heartbreaks. I want to be a voice for women and someone that allows others to say, “me too!” Now, as an expectant mom, I am more conscious than ever at how amazing our imperfect bodies are, in the strength we possess, and in the fact that our bodies should be celebrated for all they can do. As we enter this new season after 2.5 years of fertility struggles and loss, I hope to share this journey with the world as my body changes and we prepare for our baby. Being #AerieREAL isn’t reserved for a certain body type or age or season of life, it’s for all of us. For me, it will always be real, not retouched.

Cozy Night In

Cozy nights are the best nights! #AerieREAL girls Noelle Downing and Rachel Martino cozy up with hot cocoa and their favorite Aerie PJsCozy Night In

“Rachel and I both love the holidays oh so much and decided to have a cozy night in to watch some of our favorite holiday movie! We cozied up in all of our favorite Aerie goodies and it was heavenly! They are so so comfortable and also super cute. I honestly am just in love with so many pieces from Aerie- from socks to glitter bralettes! I’m wearing these buffalo plaid pants that fit so cute, a *light up* holiday hat, and these adorable pom pom slippers! You can even change out the poms making them also such a cute gift!”

Cozy Night In

“Also as you probably know Aerie is all about the body positivity movement and so am I. I love that they have the Aerie real campaign that shows real girls without any sort of retouching. It’s so important to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin and I adore working with a brand that celebrates that!”

BLOGGER’S PICK’S: Pom-tastic

Not only are our holiday accessories warm & cozy, they’re pom-tastic for gifting! We partnered with #AerieREAL girl Alex Michael May to talk her fave holiday gifts and what makes her #AerieREAL.

BLOGGER’S PICK’S: Pom-tastic

How do you get cozy this holiday season?

“I LOVE to snuggle up in extra cozy sweaters, and usually treat myself to some new comfy threads just for the season! I find myself spending more time at home, cozied up on the sofa (or bed, let’s be honest!) with my favorite candle lit and my fave records on and a hot cup of tea or coffee. Sometimes I’ll put on a mediation, too. It’s all about finding those pockets of quiet and calm during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season!”

What are some of your fave Aerie items to gift?

“I love to give friends little luxuries they don’t normally buy themselves: some extra-soft socks, slippers or a sleep mask for example. I love all the Aerie scarves and pom poms as well! They’re so fun and let a little personality loose!”BLOGGER’S PICK’S: Pom-tastic

What makes you #AerieREAL?

“I’m your virtual BFF, so I pride myself on keeping it real. But when it comes to being #AerieREAL, I just try to be as lovingly honest and authentic as I can in every area of my life. About a year ago, I decided I couldn’t go on NOT loving my body. I had to get real with myself and the ways in which I was limiting myself and not giving myself the love I deserved and so desperately needed. I decided I would declare this radical self-love despite how I currently felt, and I can say, it changed my life. For me, being real is being present. Being IN your body and asking the right questions. What I love about the #AerieREAL movement is that it’s so empowering; it’s about embracing your TRUE self and being brave enough to live that out every day in confidence, and THAT is what I strive for each and every minute.”

Blogger’s Pick’s: Velvet Everything

Velvet is here! And #AerieREAL girl Leticia from Bluhazl is getting all the feels in velvet everything. Read on to learn more about her velvet faves and what makes her #AerieREAL.

Blogger's Pick's: Velvet Everything

“The velvet pajamas make me feel cozy and happy, and they totally get me in the holiday spirit. My favorite part of the velvet set is that it’s super versatile; I will totally be mixing my top and bottoms with deconstructed denim, and fun statement tees. Truly, I feel like a bright ray of sunshine in this rustic velvet set, shining on the outside as bright as I shine on the inside. A pop of color and the velvet feels is a lifestyle bloggers dream.”

Blogger's Pick's: Velvet Everything

“I am #aerieREAL because I am unapologetically me, flaws and all. I have learned that embracing my flaws have made me shine even brighter, and that by sharing my truths and my story I can empower and inspire a community through my platform BluHazl. I believe in redefining sisterhood and being an open book to other women and I am not afraid to fail or to share my failures. Through sharing my truths and my story, I have surrounded myself with other phenomenal women who like me, have failed, had bad days, and felt like giving up but with a powerful tribe surrounding you, you have no choice but to hold yourself accountable, dust yourself and try again. I am #aerieREAL because I embrace who I am; my journey as a young, ambitious. interracial woman. Honestly, I love the woman I am becoming. #AerieREAL.”
