Would it be a lie for me to say I enjoy Lululemon athletic gear for its breathable and lightweight material that makes exercise more effortless?
For reals, I like Lululemon because their pieces feel so incredibly good to binge watch Gilmore Girls for hours in without feeling too uncomfortable or bad about myself. So yeah, that's where I'm at right now. Don't expect to see any #fitnessinspo around here anytime soon, but I AM happy to tell you guys how I picked up most of my Lululemon pieces at 1/5 of retail, which I am going to assume feels so much better than actually doing any form of exercise.
Now that we have established my out of shaped-ness, I'm happy to share that I picked up these high end athletic wear pieces at a fraction of the price from eBay. Shocker! ;) My first piece of Lululemon were my black leggings that I actually bought at the Lululemon store for full price. *gasp!* I was still new to thrifting and secondhand shopping at the time, and honestly really wanted the Lululemon bag to carry my lunch around in and humble brag that I bought a piece from there. Hey, this post is all about honesty here. Every other piece has either been on sale or was bought secondhand, but the great thing about Lululemon is that they make such high quality pieces, there was still so much life left after their first owner, and they still looked good as new!
Keep scrolling to see my Lululemon collection, the prices I paid vs retail, and maybe even catch a little glimpse of my sweet Schnitzel puppy who couldn't resist to hop in a photo! :)

If you've seen my everyday makeup routine (if not watch it here!), you'll know that a large part of my makeup collection comes from Clinique. <3 Their products are high quality, last all day, and are also good for your skin. How can you not love that?
Well yeah, Clinique products are more expensive than your drugstore beauty buys, so that IS something to NOT love. Sometimes it can be hard to justify spending 5x the price on a higher end brand. But if you shop Clinique like I do, you can get a whole lot more beauty for your buck!
Happy Friday lovelies! Today is an exceptionally happy Friday because I've finished the first week at my new job! And what does every serious business girl need in her wardrobe more than a couple of chic blazers, am I right?
Happy 2017 lovelies!
