Vancouverites & Lululemon

IMG_3320g

We live approximately 30 minutes outside of downtown Vancouver in a quaint little town with a population of under 20,000. It is a great place to live, close to lots of beautiful lakes and beaches, parks, hiking/biking trails, near popular ski destinations and close enough to Vancouver to enjoy all that the city has to offer.

IMG_334354bNatasha took up jogging to get in shape over 3 years ago and has become an avid jogger ever since.  She has also been a huge fan of Lululemon attire since she was literally 8 years old. Infact when she received a yoga outfit for her 8th Birthday from her Uncle, not many people had really even heard of the brand yet. Ever since that first outfit 13 years ago she has continued to purchase her workout/jogging clothes from there. I can’t even tell you how many items she has or express in words just how much she is obsessed with LOVES their pieces. She is like a walking advertisement for the brand! I guess you could say she fits the ‘Stereotypical Vancouverite’ description… a jogger who loves to wear Lululemon! Ha!

We have both worn it so much, yet it still looks good after all these years.

She is always eyeing the brightest colours available and when she spotted this amazing jacket she had to have it! She realized recently that right after she purchased this colour they launched it in a bright orange. Wouldn’t you know it, orange is her favourite colour.

And, that’s me, the photographer for the day! Sorry, no Lululemon today. I’m sportin’ a warm and cozy winter coat by Jessica Simpson (Winners) and black Uggs.
