New Balance and Lululemon, Style File Friday

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!

Style File Friday, Lululemon Basics

 

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!

Not Running is Tough- Fitness Update

I’m not doing my absolute best at my get-in-shape plan, but I’m also not doing terribly. I’m trying to modify what I’m doing while still maintaining the same level of fitness!

Packing for Banff!

Early, early, early on Friday morning, we are heading out for Banff. My brother and dad are going to tackle driving the whole 13 hours while Loki and I read and be adorable in the back seat. I need to make sure that I am entirely ready to go and packed for Thursday morning, as I have a few appointments on Thursday night! So, how do you plan for a May Long weekend in the Rockies?

Style Saturday: 16 April 2016

This week is a few of my favourite Lululemon items, old and new! While it is common knowledge that Lulu’s quality was not what it once was, there are still some real gems out there. With the right research and attention to details, you can find some lasting pieces. Continue reading

Alternatives to Outlet Stores

I recently posted about the differences between buying designer labels at retail stores and at outlet stores, but those aren’t the only ways to find your dream items! Thankfully the modern world has provided us with alternatives to physical stores. Continue reading

Double or Nothing- That’s the new plan!

So, as I recently posted, I am determined to stay in shape and more importantly, stay healthy! Now that 85th is over, I have slightly more time for myself. I’m still fairly busy, but I do have time to fit more work outs in! It’s been interesting stepping it up again:

Style Saturday- October 2, 2015

As the eight million posts about boots and blanket scarves and pumpkins and sweaters would indicate, we have fully and completely entered fall my friends. I love fall as much as the next person, and my clothing is fully autumnal. Onto Style Saturday!  Continue reading

Continuing on the Healthy Track

I will admit, I did not drink or eat healthy on my trip at all! However, I can say that I have tried Popeye’s Chicken (better than KFC for sure), and Cherry Vanilla Coke (that stuff is like crack). I eat pretty healthy, so it was nice to take a short break! I’m back on track, drinking only tea and water (with lemon or lime) and loading up on fruits and veggies! M and I did quite a bit of walking (upwards of 7km a day), and did a hike at Brighton Resort that was beautiful!  Continue reading

Lululemon? Is that still a thing?

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.
