What to Wear on New Years Eve

“This look is so perfect for New Years. If you’re spending the night out on the town and spending hours waiting for the clock to strike midnight, you want to be comfortable, but also super stylish. I love the layering of the plain tee under the dress and adding this awesome fur vest. I added some sparkle with a statement necklace, ’cause New Years is all about the sparkle, and over the knee boots to dress it up even more.”What to Wear on New Years Eve

“I don’t know about you, but I am such a homebody. There’s nothing better than staying in with a warm cup of hot chocolate and cuddling with the one you love. I am obsessed with rompers. Like, I have at least 30. It’s a problem. This lounging romper is so great to wear around the house, and paired with this fluffy robe it’s seriously like I’m a human marshmallow. There’s nothing better!”What to Wear on New Years Eve What to Wear on New Years Eve

5 Fit Resolutions to Make This Winter

Temperatures are dropping and we’re swapping our tank tops and running shorts for scarves and sweaters. We also might be swapping gym time for a little extra time indoors. Motivation is at an all-time low to step foot outside—let alone for a sweat sesh—but keep these five points in mind the next time you’re contemplating skipping your workout because of the cold.

1] STEP UP YOUR GYM GAME
Working out in the winter doesn’t have to mean going for a five-mile run in 20-degree weather. Endure the cold for the 10 seconds it takes to walk to your car and drive yourself to your local gym!

5 Fit Resolutions to Make This Winter

2] NO GYM, NO PROBLEM
Not up for leaving the house? No problem! There are plenty of effective workouts you can do in the comfort of your own home: make up your own body weight circuit workout, run sprints up and down your stairs for cardio, walk laps around your house while you talk on the phone with a friend, or find a yoga class online and follow along.

5 Fit Resolutions to Make This Winter

3] USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM
Everything’s more fun with a friend, and you’re more likely to hold yourself accountable when you know that others are counting on you to work out with them. You’ll serve as each other’s encouragement and motivation, which is exactly what we need once the frigid temps start to hit.

4] WAKE UP EARLY
Sleeping in won’t boost your energy levels. In fact, you’ll probably end up feeling even more tired! Wake up early, be productive and get work done. We promise you won’t regret it!

5 Fit Resolutions to Make This Winter

5] FOCUS ON THE BIG PICTURE
Print out a 12-week calendar and hang it at your desk or in your room. Pencil in workouts, school assignments, social events and spring break plans, and warmer weather won’t seem so out of reach. Plus, you’ll feel more motivated to keep pushing through those last few winter months!

However you decide to stay active this winter, remember that it is possible and you CAN do it! And on the days where you do decide to snuggle up in bed with Netflix, don’t be too hard on yourself—there’s always tomorrow.

How long have you been dancing?

Way too long! I’ve been dancing for 20 years. Whoa! I used to dance really professionally in ballet companies. That’s a lot different than what I do now. Now I just dance, I take class for myself, and then I do videos and smaller projects here and there.

What do you love most about dancing?

I love the feeling of physical expression through your body and the connection that you have with the music. It’s the most cathartic thing I experience in my life.

How did you start modeling and acting?

I was very lucky when I was dancing to also be exposed to the modeling industry, because it gave me another avenue to explore. When I was living in London or Tokyo or other big cities, I had the chance to dance and start acting and do modeling, so it was more invigorating for me. Now when I dance, I’m sure I’m not technically as good as I used to be, but I’m really doing it from an authentic place.

What music are you currently listening to?

FKA Twigs.

Lover or fighter?

Fighter!

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

India.

Who would you go with?

All my brothers and sisters.

 Breakfast in bed or dinner out?

That’s really hard! Can’t I have both?

What makes you really laugh?

My friends and family.

What is one thing you think the world needs more of?

One thing? There’s so many things! Communication.

How did you feel when you found out you wouldn’t be retouched?

First I thought, that’s a really cool concept. Then I went into, what about my legs and this and that? After I got over that, I think it’s really empowering. It’s a great message for younger girls to look up to.

What makes you #AerieREAL?

Being who you are is being #AerieREAL. My look isn’t defined by a particular place or country, and I’m really proud of that. I’m so many things. I’m just me.

Dancing, modeling, acting. What’s next for you?

Acting! But dancing, modeling, acting, they’re all who I am, so they will continue to be all of who I am.

What to Wear Christmas Morning

Christmas morning is a magical time filled with opening presents and spending quality time with family. Caitlin from Dash of Darling invites us into her home and shares her Christmas traditions. What to Wear Christmas Morning

“Merry Christmas, darlings! Ever since I was little my family has always shared the same Christmas morning tradition and today I am excited to share it with you. First, I just wanted to say that I believe traditions are an important part of the holidays. They are a powerful way to bring the family together to connect and make lasting memories. Our holiday is all that more special thanks to our yearly yuletide traditions.”What to Wear Christmas Morning What to Wear Christmas Morning

“When I was younger I could never sleep a wink on Christmas eve. I would always wake up in the middle of the night crazed with impatient excitement waiting for my mom to come into my room to tell me it was ok to come upstairs by the tree. As I have gotten older, I prefer to sleep in just a little longer, but one thing has remained the same… I love to be comfortable (yet cute for those Christmas morning jammy photos). My family has always held the tradition of opening up one present on Christmas eve after we watch a holiday movie and read stories from the Bible. This present is usually, you guessed it, new jammies. This year, I wanted something cute and cozy that I could wear year-round, so I opted for these super comfortable Aerie classic joggers, lace bralette, satin tank, knit scarf and soft socks. I feel super relaxed and snug as a bug.”What to Wear Christmas Morning
