The top five that are similar to Lululemon but a little bit more affordable.

5 Brands That Are Better Than Lululemon If You're On A Budget

I work out almost every day, so I enjoy trying new brands and seeing how they all compare to each other. While Lululemon is super nice, there are a lot of other brands in my opinion that are just as high quality but not quite with the same price tag.

Check out these five brands next time you're in the need of some leggings or a running top!

1. Gymshark

Everyone in their brother wears Gymshark now — literally. Whitney Simmons is one of their biggest influencers, but there are so many more as well. Their clothes are super nice, and they have some really cute sets that make going to the gym just that more exciting!

2. Fabletics

Honestly, I'm rough on workout clothes, and they get pretty gross pretty fast. This is why I love Fabletics! Whenever I rip a hole in leggings or I realize I've had the same pair for years, I turn to Fabletics! I mean 2 for $24—how could you beat that?

3. Athleta

Athleta can get a little pricey, but with the right coupons and discounts, it's totally worth it! It's super high quality, so it's comparable to Lulu, just not with the same price tag.

4. Forever 21

Now hear me out: Forever 21 has some NICE sports bras. I bought a couple just to see if I liked them, and holy guacamole they're so great. I spent no more than $14 for each, and they're super supportive (at least on me), 10/10 recommend! They also have a lot of fun colors too, which makes your outfits more exciting.

5. VS Sport

Victoria's Secret / Instagram

Victoria's Secret leggings are my JAM. They're pricey if you get them for retail, but whenever they have their sales you better believe I stock up. They're high waisted which I really like, and they're soft as well. I wore mine so much I put a hole in them. :(

No matter what, if you show up to the gym in a t-shirt and shorts, go you! Working out is such an essential part of my life, and I like to look good doing it. It helps me get motivated to go to the gym when I have cute workout gear to throw on!

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.
