My hope for Style File Friday is that it is a place for me to share my favourite style and beauty recommendations while also sharing the stories and backgrounds that go along with them. I love knowing how someone came to find and love a piece, and that makes a big difference when I’m looking for recommendations myself. (Let me know if you like this approach.) Onto the goods!……
My charge to back to being in shape is going pretty well, all in all! I know that a lot of people don’t want to invest in gym clothing and equipment (shoes) until they’ve reached a certain goal, but I find that I am far more motivated to hit the pavement and keep moving if I’ve got something new to wear. I have a few new pieces right now that are motivating me to get to the gym and to my yoga mat and put the time in that I should!
My relationship with Lululemon has been slightly fraught. Prices are slowly rising while sheer leggings and rolling hems can be an issue. However, there are still a few different pieces that I still reach for and I recommend no matter what. I grabbed both of these in a new colour when I was in Banff (you can always branch out.) Somehow I’ve been a Lululemon customer for twelve years (TWELVE??? Where has the time gone?) and I’ve tried a wide range of products, it’s time I share my Lulu brand knowledge with all of you!
It didn’t work out last summer, but I will be taking a ballet class with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet this summer!!! I could not be more excited for this. I haven’t taken any ballet classes in almost 4 years now, so it will certainly kick my butt, but I will love it. Continue reading
I’m not going to lie, I didn’t exercise at all when M was visiting. We don’t get too much time together in the same place, so I’m not going to waste it on anything other than being with him! However, I haven’t been pushing myself as hard as I usually do, for probably the last month. I am not sure why, but I need to get back into shape. I’ve gained a little weight (nothing hugely noticeable to others, but I know it is there), I’m finding it hard to want to exercise at night, and I’m more sore than normal for me. So far, I am 4 for 5 for exercising in the last 5 days, and I’m looking to keep the momentum going! Continue reading
Like any other Canadian female twenty something, I have quite a bit of familiarity with Lululemon. I danced for almost two decades, and it was nice to have activewear for my to-and from class that wasn’t purely functional (read: actually cut for women) and good quality. I bought my first pieces from Lulu in 2005- I still have those Groove Pants, and they are in great condition. The original Scuba I had lasted about 5 years with a great deal of wear.
