What was your favorite part of the Cayman Islands? 

The incredible colors of the Caribbean actually made my entire vacation feel like I was stuck in this beautiful watercolor painting. It begins when you start flying over the islands. Looking down and seeing the perfect ocean blue waters with the white sand and coral reef is when you know you are about to experience something unforgettable. There where so many favorite parts, but as a favorite spot I would have to say Star Fish point. Surrounded by palm trees  and a white sandy beach, it is the perfect spot to disconnect from the real world and really enter into that island state of mind.

You travel all the time. What is your all-time favorite place to visit? 

Well, venturing to the Cayman Islands was my first experience in the Caribbean! Now all I can think of is when can I go back? I LOVE traveling and every destination has so many different special moments and experiences to offer. Continuously at the top of my list is the little town of Sayulita in Mexico. I love the energy there and the culture that it has preserved over the years. Even though tourism has increased a whole lot it still has kept its little surfer town charm, which is so enchanting. But when it comes to a perfect beach vacation, Cayman Islands seems to be the new untouchable! I have never experienced such sparkling beauty when it comes to clear waters and white sand between my toes.

Do you have any summer getaways planned?

Yes! Of course. I have so many on the list! A few destinations on my list include Barbados (like I said I need another dose of the Caribbean ASAP) and Costa Rica. British Columbia actually has so many road trip worthy trips as well. Tofino will be on the list for a Pacific Northwest getaway and maybe even a spontaneous road trip or two! Always trying to get away as much as I can. Travel gives me inspiration and energy and I am always the most excited to share new locations and take my readers to a new and exciting destination.

What makes you #AerieREAL?

OK let’s get real, for all my curly haired friends out there. Curly does not equal perfect beach hair, sadly! I have a hard time accepting my frizz and curls in its natural state. BUT in this video on this vacation there are a few shots where you can see that I had no other option but to embrace the real curly frizzyness that is my natural hair. Sometimes diving into the water and getting my hair wet just has to trump keeping my “effort-full undone waves” that I try and keep especially for photos. I love the #AerieREAL message and would also like to add that I take pride in my body, I always try to eat healthy and work out. My dad always said while we were growing up, your body is your temple. I think that is an important message to keep in mind, never overdo something to the point of being unhealthy. Stick to what makes you feel at your best because that is what your body deserves.

“Nothing beats warm weather and a sunset on the beach with your boyfriend! This past week I spent time on vacation with Tyler and a few of our friends for a much needed getaway to Florida. We spent time relaxing by the pool, going to the beach, walking the boardwalk, and making memories.”

“While there I wore this beachy outfit from Aerie to dinner on the boardwalk and loved the light-weight feminine vibe. This pink and white tube top bikini is seriously so amazing I can’t even put it into words. The arm strap detailing adds the perfect touch. I wore this suit as top under a denim shirt paired with Aerie’s button up white skirt.”

Follow Her Friday: Jessica Hickman

This week we’re inspired by Jessica Hickman, NEDA (National Eating Disorders Association) National Walk Manager! Read on to learn more about NEDA, how to get involved and what #AerieREAL means to her.

Follow Her Friday: Jessica Hickman

It’s no secret that Aerie loves NEDA! Can you tell our girls a little bit about the organization, how you got involved and your role on the NEDA Team?

That’s so nice – the feelings are definitely mutual! NEDA stands for National Eating Disorders Association, and we are the leading U.S. non-profit for providing support to individuals and their loved ones affected by eating disorders. NEDA advocates for prevention, early intervention, research, and access to quality care for eating disorders.

I became involved with NEDA after overcoming an eating disorder. I was a two-time volunteer NEDA Walk coordinator in my college town. I wanted to give back to an organization that was there for me, and to spread awareness on a subject that was once even hard for me to talk about. It was an experience that challenged and thrilled me and also inspired me to do more. Now fast forward, and I am the National Walk Manager at NEDA where I am overseeing 65 city walk campaigns and supporting the dedicated walk coordinators who make it all possible! It’s a dream.

New NEDA walks are being added all the time! Where can our girls go to learn more and get involved?      

Yes! We are in so many new cities this spring too, and I’m very excited about that. You can go to nedawalk.org to register for a walk near you. You even have the option of forming a team – so don’t forget to invite all of your friends! Follow Her Friday: Jessica Hickman

We know how important early intervention & screenings are. What is NEDA doing to help educate affected individuals & their families?

This year’s theme for NEDAwareness Week is “3 Minutes Can Save a Life: Get Screened, Get Help, Get Healthy.” We have an online screening tool that takes just a few minutes to complete. This tool can direct users to the right resources for getting help and getting healthy. This initiative doesn’t end with NEDAwareness Week, though. The online screening tool, Information & Referral Helpline, and our other programs, resources, and support networks (like Proud2BMe and NEDA Navigators) are readily available to provide education and support.

We heard you use to work at Aerie! What was your favorite part about the job?

I loved doing the floor sets! I thought it was so fun transforming the store into something totally new overnight. Plus, what’s cooler than hanging out at the mall after hours and getting the first peek at new arrivals?

What is your favorite Aerie product?

Right now, I’m loving my Aerie Sport-ish Crop Legging– but I have an online shopping cart full of some soon-to-be favorites for spring.

What does being #AerieREAL mean to you?

#AerieREAL is not just a hashtag – it’s also movement for girls to support other girls in a world that has made it hard at times to do so. Being #AerieREAL means accepting, owning, and loving your individuality. For me, this was something that once took practice and a daily, conscious effort. Now that I’ve captured feeling of self-love and security, I’m not letting go. I will work to protect it and through working at NEDA I hope to inspire others to find it.

Thank you, Jessica!

xoxo

Aerie
