Tully Lou

I am well versed in exercise clothing- the features, benefits and fabrics- having worked at Lululemon once upon a time. Lululemon is amazing quality and really great for the sport each garment has been made for. I really believe that even though Lulu is ridiculously expensive, the quality makes it worth it as their clothing lasts forever (I’ve had a pair of their pants for over 7 years and they’re still great!) But right now, I just don’t have the cash to splash on Lulu prices. Lorna Jane seems to be the next option when looking for yoga and exercise gear, but personally I can’t bring myself to buy any of it as I don’t like having branding splashed across clothing and the quality is not quite the same (Lululemon may have spoiled me for quality there…)

So in my hunt for some new threads to make me get off my butt and start running again this winter, I came across Tully Lou. Tully Lou is a small new Australian company who are just about to release their second range of yoga and fitness clothes and I’m slightly obsessed with their navy and lime leggings! I have found them to not only be great colours and design but they function really well and are so comfy to wear. The range is still small but as they are heading into just their second season, the range is sure to grow! I’m excited to see what is coming!

My biggest qualm would be that the website does not describe the items features and design or fabric compositions which is actually quite important. Despite this I have found the clothing to be quite functional. The tops are good for yoga but not supportive enough for anything else eg. running (well for me personally anyway) For now I will just be sticking to their amazing leggings!

So if you’re after something a little bit different and unique that looks great, then I definitely recommend you try out Tully Lou range!

Hard to Find

Ok so this one is not so secret and I feel like I’m giving away a hundred blog post ideas in one but incase you have not ever visited this site here it is!

Hard to Find (HTF) was one of my original one stop online shop for gifts. The business concept is brilliant and they support small businesses which everyone is into these days so the growth of the site is hardly surprising. It is essentially a virtual marketplace where approved sellers present their items. This I suppose is a good quality control measure to ensure the quality of the products presented to the buyer. I remember stumbling upon HTF in it’s humble beginnings when it was only Australian small businesses and there was only about three catagories to choose from. Now the site covers womens, mens and kids everything as well as homewares, travel and more. And the prices range from completely reasonable to ‘oh its a gift so I’ll pay that bit extra’.

My problem with the site is now it has become so big with so many products, it is a little difficult to sort through the 10 pages of scarves etc. I also think that they have let too much plasticy items in, but there are still the unique handmade items if you look! Not bad problems to have, there are definitely some amazing items if you look! ( a suggestion would be to click on ‘collections’- here they have put together the best products under certain themes).

The best part is (besides your fairly unique purchase) that shipping is mostly free and they can wrap it and send it straight to the recipient if it is a gift. Super handy if like me your rellos are all over the country. This could be a game changer for Christmas shopping!

As every post needs pictures, I’ve put some of my recent ‘finds’ below!
