GET TO KNOW...

Get to Know ROOLEE Model Aubrie

AUBRIE

How long have you been working with ROOLEE?
I have been working for ROOLEE for four years now, so crazy! I started working in the store in the summer of 2016 and started modeling for the company shortly after that.

Where are you originally from?
Northern California! I moved to Utah when I was nine.

What is your favorite part about modeling for ROOLEE?
My favorite part about modeling for ROOLEE is for sure all the people I get to meet and work with at shoots! ROOLEE really knows how to pick some of the most genuine and awesome employees.

What are your other hobbies?
I love to hike, rock climb and watercolor!

What is one of your favorite shoots or locations you've shot with ROOLEE?
Stockholm, Sweden. It was so much fun running around the streets with everyone and stopping at random places to capture some amazing shots!

How would you describe your personal style?
My style is pretty minimalist. I love anything that is stylish but super comfortable, so boyfriend jeans are my jam!

What makes you feel beautiful and confident?
I feel beautiful and confident when I smile more throughout the day. It is such a mood changer when you remind yourself to smile, especially to strangers that you pass by. It makes me feel more approachable and happy.

Do you have any tried-and-true beauty tips?
Adding lemon to my water throughout the day! I tend to drink more water when I have lemons and I have seen a big difference in my skin and my energy.

What's your favorite ROOLEE item you've ever tried on?
It's so hard to pick my favorite ROOLEE piece! I love everything I try on. I think I would have to say the biker shorts are the best. I got both colors and wore them on all our travel days in Europe and they were so perfect!

Get to Know ROOLEE Model Mckenzie

MCKENZIE

How long have you been working with ROOLEE?
About 2 years. I had a baby in between. :) 

Where are you originally from?
Bentonville, Arkansas 

What is your favorite part about modeling for ROOLEE?
The people, by far! Being apart of the ROOLEE family has been such a highlight. Everyone is so kind and loving. Going to a ROOLEE photoshoot is like going to hang out with friends! 

What are your other hobbies?
Being a full time mama keeps me pretty busy and I love it! I have also been doing hair for 6 years, so I guess I could say that is my job and a hobby at the same time. 

What is one of your favorite shoots or locations you've shot with ROOLEE?
I love when we go to the poppy fields in Mantua! It’s magical. 

What's your favorite ROOLEE item you've ever tried on?
It’s so hard to choose because at every shoot I just want everything I try on! If I had to choose, I’d say the ROOLEE Elvis Platform Boots! I bought them and I wear them close to every day.

Get to Know ROOLEE Model Sarah

SARAH

How long have you been working with ROOLEE?
I have worked with ROOLEE for over a year now! 

Where are you originally from?
I'm a Cache Valley girl. Born and raised right here!

What is your favorite part about modeling for ROOLEE?
The lifelong friendships I've made! The entire ROOLEE family is just that: a family. Being welcomed into such a loving, uplifting, and supporting group has been amazing! 

What are your other hobbies?
My hobbies include everything from movie watching, crafting, or getting a nice sun tan! 

How would you describe your personal style?
I would describe my personal style as versatile. My style is constantly changing! I love trying new things and keeping up with the latest fashion trends.

What makes you feel beautiful and confident?
I feel beautiful and confident after a fresh spray tan! Sometimes something as simple as that can boost your confidence about yourself. I find that when I take care of myself by having spa night, getting a pedicure or even getting a spray tan, it makes me feel like me. 

What's your favorite tried-and-true beauty tip?
Castor oil! It's one of my secrets to healthy hair and clear skin!

Get to Know ROOLEE Model Claira

CLAIRA

How long have you been working with ROOLEE?
I started working for ROOLEE May of 2019, and it is the best company to work for in the entire world!

Where are you originally from?
I was born and raised in Preston, Idaho, and still live there with my husband and 2-year-old daughter.

What is your favorite part about modeling for ROOLEE?
The employees and owners are literally the sweetest, most genuine people I have ever been around. I feel so honored every time I am around them just to be hanging out with them and to be a part of something so great. 

What are your other hobbies?
I am a florist, certified lash artist, and own a gym/health coaching business with my husband. Lots of things! But I mostly enjoy spending quality time with my little family. 

What does a typical photoshoot day look like for you?
I am always working at another job before or after,  but once we get on set wherever we may be, I fluff up my hair and add my lip color. Then I just hang out with my friends and shoot product! 

What is one of your favorite shoots or locations you've shot with ROOLEE?
We took a half day and drove up Cottonwood Canyon and stopped all along the way to get some amazing photos. Not only were the photos, views and locations amazing, but we had a yummy lunch at a little place in the canyon (huge juicy burgers) and just enjoyed each other’s company. It was the best day!

How would you describe your personal style?
I’m somewhere between sporty and minimalist. ROOLEE's inventory fits perfectly! 😍

What makes you feel beautiful and confident?
For me, it’s all about my health. When my body and mind are on track to reaching my health and fitness goals, everything else seems to fall in place. 

Do you have any tried-and-true beauty tips?
Less is more! Maybe this is over-said, but the less you try to do with your skin, makeup, hair, etc. it will end up being better. There’s no reason to over-wash your skin or hair or put too much makeup on to hide your natural, beautiful features. Find what works for you and roll with it! 

What's your favorite ROOLEE item you've ever tried on?
The ROOLEE Elvis Platform Boots were for sure my winter staple. I wore them almost every day! I’m also obsessed with the hats. I could own ALL of those Gigi Pip hats!

Get to Know ROOLEE Model Kelsi

KELSI

How long have you been working with ROOLEE?
I shot with ROOLEE for the first time a little over a year ago! 

Where are you originally from?
I grew up in St. George, Utah. I miss the weather and red rock every day!

What is your favorite part about modeling for ROOLEE?
I love how kind, accepting, friendly and fun the ROOLEE team is! It's always a little nerve-racking to shoot with a company for the first time because you want to make a good impression and you aren't familiar with their expectations yet. But the minute I walked into the studio, I was welcomed with hugs from each member of the team and they were so kind and helpful and wanted to make sure I felt comfortable. Each time we shoot, they're always so positive and encouraging and it makes it feel like a fun get-together with friends rather than work.

What are your other hobbies?
I love hiking, cooking, traveling, playing games with my family, anything outdoors and I'm currently learning to play tennis!

What does a typical photoshoot day look like for you?
I will usually get my bag ready the night before. I always take extra underclothes, makeup, hairspray, snacks and water with me. Then the day of, I get up early and get ready or head to hair and makeup, then I meet the team at the studio and we usually spend 2-4 hours shooting.  

What is one of your favorite shoots or locations you've shot with ROOLEE?
Our trip to Cancun. We got to shoot at some beautiful locations by the beach and a couple different resorts. It was so fun to travel with the team and see different places while working!

How would you describe your personal style?
This is hard! I have so many different styles depending on the day and my mood. I think I'm usually a mix of boho and street style. I love mixing different styles and it's fun to mix more dressy looks with casual. I love a cute feminine top with jeans and sneakers!

What makes you feel beautiful and confident?
When I feel like I can laugh and be myself! Also when I'm around people who are positive and uplifting (like the ROOLEE team).

What's your favorite tried-and-true beauty tip?
When I have shoots, after I do my makeup I will spray hairspray on a lash brush and brush it through my brows to keep them in place and help them look more full and fluffy! 

What's your favorite ROOLEE item you've ever tried on?
I LOVE my Daisy Pants. They are so fun and unique and I love that they can be dressed up or down. Plus, they're sooo comfortable!

Get to Know ROOLEE Model Izzie

IZZIE

How long have you been working with ROOLEE?
I've been working at the Logan store for about a year now, and I've been modeling for just a few months!

Where are you originally from?
Logan, Utah

What is your favorite part about modeling for ROOLEE?
I love getting a sneak peak at all the clothes coming out before they hit the store!

What are your other hobbies?
Yoga, embroidery and reading.

What does a typical photoshoot day look like for you?
Before a photoshoot I usually shower, apply self tanner, do my hair and makeup, and make sure my nails and toenails are painted.

What is one of your favorite shoots or locations you've shot with ROOLEE?
Last year I did a photoshoot up at Utah State University for ROOLEE's back to school collection! It was so much fun to pretend to be a student.

How would you describe your personal style?
I love combining dressy and casual together, like a longer skirt with a t-shirt! 

What makes you feel beautiful and confident?
A good tan! I always feel way more confident with self tanner or a spray tan, even without makeup.

Do you have any tried-and-true beauty tips?
False lashes glued underneath my real lashes instead of on top. I've been doing it everyday for years, and people always ask me if they're extensions! It's way cheaper and looks just as good. 

What's your favorite ROOLEE item you've ever tried on?
I would definitely have to say my ROOLEE Karamelo Sandals! They're my favorite shoes I've ever owned. I also love all the Gigi Pip hats!
