Lululemon - My Favorite Things

 


Dressing for Success 


    

 "Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman" Coco Chanel


On a wintery day in the Pacific Northwest, I thought I would write about my favorite athletic wear - Lululemon.   I wear Lululemon 365 days a year.  Yes, I do!  Why you ask? Because the apparel is created of the highest quality fabrics, in an array of beautiful colors, styles and designs, super comfortable and made of dry-fit or sweat-wicking material.  They never pill, washes well, and keeps for years. Furthermore, these numbers remind me daily to work out and get moving! More importantly, Lululemon makes you look and feel great.  As Billy Crystal once said on SNL, "It is more important to look good than to feel good. "You look marvelous."  

My Daily Routine


  

"The joy of dressing is an art." John Galliano

When I wake up in the morning, I slip into a pair of Lululemon leggings, top and sweatshirt.  You will never find me wearing pajamas all day or even for an hour or two.  Instead, I eagerly get dressed for a new page to begin. It is just as important as making your bed in the morning in order to jump start your day with an accomplishment.    After all, my motto is "dress for success."  

If I am planning on playing tennis a few hours later, I switch into my favorite tennis apparel (future article) and out the door I go.  When I return home, I shower and reach for jeans and cashmere sweaters which are comfy and always classic.  You will never find me in Lululemon all day or in the evening.  I believe in dressing up a bit, putting my makeup on even if it is late in the day.  Makes me feel good, look polished and self-confident.   However, every morning begins with Lululemon

But First - Some Inspiration 


"Spread love wherever you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."  Mother Teresa

Before I ramble on about my favorite Lululemon pieces, I thought I would take a moment for a few words and share inspiration and love.  We all had a difficult 2020. My hope is that we can come together, spread cheer, and calm the turbulent seas in 2021. What we have lived through, what we have witnessed, what we have endured has been heartbreaking and gut wrenching.  Recently we were stunned to our knees.  We were shocked, livid, saddened for the loss of life and appalled. Yet, we continue to carry on with grace. 

What have we learned?  We have learned that family and true friends are everything.  We have learned that helping another person is the essence of human existence. We learned that connection was and is paramount.  The human condition is beautiful tapestry and finding peace, hope and love is the essence of everyone's life. 


Family & Friends 


"There are friends, there is family, and then there are friends that become family." 

Surrounding yourself with family and friends during the darkest days brings contentment to our lives.    The constant calls, texts and video chats help soothe the soul and refresh our energy.  Without, this element of connection we are lost. Additionally, I believe we are turning the corner and the new year will bring much joy and happiness to everyone.

“Carry on beauties.  Enjoy your life. Embrace it. Spread love, joy, hope and peace.   Smile.  Make life memorable." 


Until Next Time,

Kim

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer. 

Pops of Color

  Spring is Coming Pixabay Photo - No Attribution Required "Colors are the smiles of nature." Leigh Hunt I think the time has come to sport bright colors and launch ourselves into Spring 2021.  Images of orange, pink, red, yellow and lime greens come to mind.  March is around the corner and soon the flowers will begin to open, blue skies may appear, and a fresh new world is about to burst forth.  I also get the strong sense that people are beginning to feel confident and resuming some of their favorite activities.  For instance, where I play tennis masked, several of my friends have recently come back.  Seeing their twinkling eyes and masked faces brings joy to my heart.
