Sometimes, I think I was born to the wrong parents in the wrong country because I wish I had been born and live in Australia. But of course, I wasn’t and I did choose the right parents for me in this lifetime. Since becoming a certified health coach and starting Polly’s Path, I have met some incredible women from all over the world who are just like me, passionate about making our lives full of service by inspiring readers/clients/followers to upgrade their choices when it comes to their diet and lifestyle. Not so long ago, I discovered an awesome lifestyle brand called Lorna Jane who looked like they make really cute colourful and sexy fitness gear. But then when I went searching for their products online, I was disappointed to learn they are not based in the UK, but of course, Australia, where all the other awesome health coaches and foodies seem to live! Until now…
Lorna Jane has landed in London!
Yes, I am really excited to tell you that Lorna Jane has landed and I went to check out their pop-up store in Covent Garden last week which I’m going to tell you all about. Plus I’m having a little Lorna Jane giveaway so make sure you read to the bottom to be in with a chance of winning!
What/who is Lorna Jane?
Lorna Jane Clarkson is the forward-thinking pioneer & advocate for health and wellbeing, and creator of the Move Nourish Believe movement. (I was super chuffed to be featured as a Sporty Sister earlier this year on MNB which you can read here.) Lorna is a girl after my own heart; from what I have read online and from her personal instagram, I can see that she likes to move her body every day, sticks to eating whole natural foods and believes that anything is possible with a bit of hard work. Amen sister! Oh, and she looks like she’s a dog person which always scores points with me! (I’m a maltipoo mama don’t you know!)
I had the pleasure of visiting the store last week and checking out all the gear which I was excited to get my hands on. Lorna and her team have done a really great job of making you want to wear exercise clothes even when you’re not working out. The material is extremely good quality and the designs are bright and uplifting. I’ve currently got my beady eye on a few items and knowing me, will probably be introducing them to my wardrobe very soon!
I love everything the Lorna Jane brand stands for. I love that not only do they make wicked clothing, they INSPIRE you to move and nourish your body and believe in your dreams. I also love that they use real women as their muses to model the clothes and be a source of inspiration to work out. If you’re in need of a dose of fitspo, I recommend following their instagram and pinterest accounts where you can find pictures like this one below. (If you want some foodie and health inspiration, come check out my pics!)
Lorna Jane is located at:
1 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London.
The pop up store is open until 4th August and I believe a larger more permanent store will be opening very soon. If you can’t get down to the store, you can also buy online here.

Thank you to all who entered – we wish we could give you all vouchers at Lorna Jane. It was SO hard to choose a winner but we finally made the decision to go with Emilia who said:
I’ve been following LH on twitter for a while and everything looks AMAZING. I’m new to the fitness model industry and feel the need to treat myself to some new gym gear to show off (attending a gym which is 95% male based means I need to FULLY represent for the other sporty fit females out there). Huge advocate of ‘strong is the new skinny’, and what better way to do that than by proving strong and fit can be super fashionable!
I live by superfoods and clean living, so much so that I’m in the midst of setting up my own business surrounding clean, alkaline living. I work in a PhD sports science office aka far too many sceptical men, and if I have more to show off to them about how delicious things can be I can slowly convert them (so far almond milk has been my best)!
Living active means incorporating clean, healthy, fit living in to my every day life! I work, live and breathe training and clean living, you only have to look at my twitter to see all the alkaline, clean recipes I conjure up daily! Adopting this life got me out of chronic fatique syndrome that even doctors couldn’t cure! It means taking advantage of a future trip to the states to source all the best vegan restaurants, new fitness trends (cue Soul Cycle and Barry’s Bootcamp) and encouraging all friends to undertake them with me (despite their greatest reluctance). It means enjoying life to the fullest, avoiding the chemical s*$t storm that is low fat, poor quality food and ultimately never giving up!
Thanks Emilia and congratulations!
