Welcome back to Blink and You'll Miss it 59th and Lexington! I decided that this page needed a facelift. Stat. So, Blink and You'll Miss it was put away for later, and 59th and Lexington was born. This intersection in NYC is one of my favourite places to go shopping, so it kind of suited the rebirth of my fashion blog.

Exercising is hard. Some people (who knows how) love it, crave it, and, dare I say it, enjoy it. I am definitely not one of those people. For me, exercising is the worst of all the chores on my to-do list. But, unfortunately, some of my biggest goals in life, losing weight and eating great food, contradict each other. Exercise is the only way this can happen. Two years ago I completed a stint in country Victoria with my school. A kind of boarding school in the bush, if you will. One of the components of this year away was a guaranteed increase in fitness (as we completed two runs each week). At the end of 2010, I ran from the base of Mt. Stirling, all the way up, all the way down, and then all the way up Mt. Buller. And I ran the whole way. The whole way. When I got home I convinced myself that I would not loose my fitness and let this hard work go un recognised. Well...I kind of did. Running in Melbourne is hard. It's not like the bush, people actually see you. As much as I try and convince myself that people will not care, my puffed little waddle is not an attractive sight. So, I was in a pickle. Until I discovered one thing that would attract me to running: the attire.

Lululemon Athletica is a clothing store that was initially established in Canada, but has since circulated all around the world. It's been around for a while, but now, it's as if Lulu is the only exercise brand that you should be sporting (pardon the pun -haha!) They create clothes suitable for all types of exercise, but specialise in fabulous yoga clothes. They use fabulous materials such as luon, luxtreme and tech fleece, which are made from the mixing of fabrics that we all known.

Lululemon is currently all I can think about. It's a little on the pricier side, but I must say it's worth it. The quality is fantastic, flattering and really comfortable. And plus, you look so cool whilst wearing it. If this doesn't sell it to you, check out their outlet store here.

In the mean time, here are a couple of things that I am lusting over:

 Run: Tame Me Tank in 'flash.' 

 Run: Excel Crop in 'black/Paris pink' 

 Run: Stuff Your Bra in 'coral/flash'
