Stuck on what to buy the dog-lover that has EVERYTHING? 🐶 Well, we became THOSE people and purchased a handy little Oco camera so that we can watch our pups when we're gone and spy on their shenanigans (which really looks like sleeping on the couch!) We can even talk to them through the camera! 😂 Yup, we are crazy about our pups. I had no clue what to get Drew but I jumped onto @AmazonLaunchpad to see all the latest and greatest tech gifts and within minutes grabbed the PERFECT gift! 🎁 If you're feeling stuck this holiday season, check out their gift guides (total lifesaver!) Let's be honest, our mailman is dropping Amazon boxes at our door daily. Sorry, not sorry. ✉️ What's one thing on your wishlist this holiday season? #AmazonLaunchpad http://izea.it/aptHMQS #doglover #ad #kutchercraftsman
What was the BEST book you read in 2017? 📖 This past year I allowed myself to become a book worm again. I had lost that little part of my passion when I started my business and glorified busy... I mean, who had time to read when you’re working around the clock? Over the last 365 days I’ve read so many books, it’s become a part of my routine to read every single night and it’s reminded me how good it feels to imagine and dream and be transported through words on a page! So I wanna know, what was the best book you read this year? I’m always on the hunt for new page-turners! And let me know below if you’d like a little round up of my 2017 faves! Maybe we should do a book club next year? 📚👇🏼🥂
All the squinty smiles and poms! 🙋🏼 How lucky am I that I get to sit in @aerie with hundreds of women and talk about body image? If you would have told the old me that one day I would be able to help women love themselves, I would have spit coffee on you! I struggled A LOT and I still do. I feel shame in my body, I feel uncomfortable in my skin, I feel like I’ll never be enough. I poke and prod at the extra just like you but I matter and this feed is my story. I’m not showing up because something suddenly clicked and I woke up one day feeling beautiful, I’m showing up because this journey matters and showing the reality of learning how to love yourself is hard. I’m just thankful that in doing it, I can encourage you to start to own your un-sum-uppable brilliance too! Tell me below, what is ONE thing you have learned to LOVE about yourself? #aeriereal #ccxaerie
You are enough. 👋🏻 You, yes you, the imperfect, messy human with the story. The one who doesn’t see it, doesn’t feel it, doesn’t believe it. ✨ You are enough, you do enough, and who are simply are is enough. When you claim that and own it, you give others the permission to do the same. 🥂 Sit with it, repeat it, bask in it, and believe it. The world needs more humans who own their enough-ness. ✉️ Give yourself the love you so freely give to everyone else. Taken directly from my journal on a hard day. But maybe you needed it, too. 👇🏼 Post an emoji below if you need to be reminded of the fact that YOU ARE ENOUGH.
UNCOMFORTABLE TOPIC ALERT. 🙈 This picture is hung by desk, it’s not just of cute kids but the faces that remind me why I work so hard. I don’t talk about giving enough... in fact, I feel incredibly awkward doing so. For so long, I felt guilt that I wasn’t giving, I thought I couldn’t make a dent, I told myself that when I had more money then I could give more... but those were all lies. 🙋🏼 I coveted my money, I held on tight and I didn’t realize the power I was giving it in my life. Since meeting these faces, I’ve written checks totaling more than my past corporate salary. I started small and kept setting bigger goals. The more I give, the more I see change happening. We talk about this season of giving, but if we’re being honest, it’s HARD. ✨ We shy away from seeing the need because it hurts. If I can share anything this holiday season, it’s this: find a cause you care about, something you believe in. Make it a mission to be better, to do more, so that you can make a bigger impact. Put a face to that need and look it in the eye, make it real. 💦 This year Drew and I have funded four water systems with @healing_waters that give hundreds of families in the Dominican Republic access to clean water, something we all take for granted. I don’t tell you this to brag, but it matters to me, my business doesn’t just make money, it leads change. 🌎 Comment below what your favorite cause is! We CAN make a difference, we can make a dent. Let’s be the change the wish to see in this world!
Today's vibe: Coffee, lotsa coffee. ☕️ These past few months I've been trying to slow down, trying to savor then moments. 🛏 Trying to steal a few extra minutes snuggling in bed. Trying to open that devotional on my nightstand each night. Trying to hold that downward dog a little longer. Trying to get out and get some fresh air. And definitely trying to sip my @cameronscoffee a little slower. 🧘♀️ This Minnesota gal loves her french roast (and something about knowing it's from my home state makes me feel like I’m home!) 🏠 How do you take your coffee? Tell me below, I love hearing what you're sipping! 👇🏼🥛🥄 #alwayssmoothneverbitter

I was sitting around the table and they were all talking about me like I wasn't even there. They talked about how I was a champion for women, how I was changing the way that beauty was showing up online... and here I thought I was just keeping it real, documenting my personal struggle, and the journey to learn how to love this curvy body I'm living in. 🤦🏼♀️ It was then that I realized that the things I needed most, other women were needing to... like discussions about body image or candid chatter about our imperfections or how it really felt to not love the skin you're in. This Saturday, I'm flying to Miami to sit on a panel of women who are championing these conversations, leading the way, and showing that real will always trump retouched. ✨ Join me, @alyraisman, @iskra, and many others as we launch the newest @aerie location, sip mocktails and mingle, and real talk about what it's really like to learn to love yourself! 👋🏻 Head to the link in my profile to RSVP and tag your Miami friends below so I can meet them! I can't wait to hug y'all in real life and get some sunshine! ☀️#aeriereal + #ccxaerie
We were winding up the mountain in the dark, twisting and turning, only able to see what was immediately in front of us with the help of our headlights. People promised us it would be worth it, but in the darkness, we questioned it... ⛰ We reached the peak as the sun started to light up the dark world. Above the clouds, we got to see the things we missed in the darkness: the beauty, the grit, the growth. As we sat at the top and took it in with marvelous wonder, I realized life is a lot like this. ☀️ So often we are journeying through uncharted territory, only able to see what’s immediately next, missing both the infinite smalls and the greater plan. They tell us it’ll be worth it but in those dark hours we doubt in our loneliness. ✨ It’s when the lights start to sneak in can we see it all more clearly: every bump, every twist, every doubt led to the most beautiful discovery and when you lift your eyes and see it all in the light of day, you realize that you were never truly alone, just moving along at your own pace, parallel to others on their own journeys. 🚗 Stay in your lane, the sun is coming and the view will be worth it! Double tap if you needed this reminder! 🌄
I’m flying my entire team to Waco so we can try and find Joanna Gaines… 🤦🏼♀️ Kidding, we are heading there in January to lead my mastermind group and goodness gracious, I can’t wait for us to be in one place together. ✈️ I put the flights on my @AmericanExpress so that I can take advantage of all the travel perks and 2x the points, heck yes! That’ll give us more spending power at Magnolia when we’re in town. 🤸🏼♂️ Double tap if you think we should try and get Joanna onto the podcast! Where are you flying to next?
