Hoop Pretty Giveaway

5 Jun


Oooooooh! So exciting…our very first giveaway here at The Happy Hoop…featuring the one and only, Hoop Pretty! Isn’t this shirt adorable? It has a great flowy script font that says “Hoop Dance Freak Flow”…it’s super soft, printed with eco-inks and I LOVE it!  And now it can be yours! As a little bonus, we’ll have a second giveaway for this adorable “Hoop Dance Love” sticker. Oh how I love stickers.

So what is Hoop Pretty?
Hoop Pretty is a sister design team with backgrounds in fashion, surface design + flow arts. Being hoopsters themselves, they wanted to create designs that reflect the fun, freedom + attitude of hoop dance! They aim for 100% natural fibers so their clothing is also great for fire hooping + poi! They use water-based Eco Inks whenever possible and make sure our printers and suppliers are just as sensitive to the environmental impacts of production. Most of their  products are sourced from American Apparel, which is known for their well-made, sustainable products that are Made In the USA.

I wanted to hear more about how Barbra and Rachel started hooping and how Hoop Pretty came about. Here it is in Barbra’s own words:

“Hooping was way for me to be part of a community again. I had found myself in a work-at-home situation after working a 9-5 job and realized that I am a social person that needs to be around people (especially my sister Rachel), interact and help others to feel fulfilled. It’s strange because while everyone’s in their own little hoopworlds while they’re hooping, its also an activity that completely brings people together ~ and people of all backgrounds. I love that.

Hooping of course has a great physical aspect to it. I’m a bit of a nerd so the logic side of me says that I like it because it helps my hand-to-eye coordination. The anti-nerd side says it’s a pretty sexy performance art + wonderful exercise as well. The balance that hoop dance brings is so neutralizing and therapeutic. I could be having a terrible day, but if I just step hoop for 10 minutes, all that dissipates.

HoopPretty started because my sister Rachel and I had decided we wanted to transform our lives by doing what we love ~ we’re passionate about making fun things that hoop dancers can enjoy and connect with. We both have backgrounds in graphic design + fashion, so this is a perfect fit. As a creative team, I feel we have a great dynamic going on. I really enjoy working with her ~ we bounce ideas off each other and really think about what someone would feel good about wearing.”

    I hooped out in the huge thunderstorm. The down pour was delicious!

  2. Jaclyn Reynolds June 5, 2010 at 6:53 pm #

    I haven’t hooped in awhile but have a talent for keeping it going around my legs,lol.

    I most recently hooped at work! I work for individuals with developmental disabilities who live in their own homes. I decided to pull the hoop out of my car and show them how I hoop. They really liked it! They couldn’t quite do it themselves but we had fun rolling the hoop back and forth =)

  4. Gloria June 5, 2010 at 7:05 pm #

    Yesterday it rained so I hooped in my living room with my two boys. We have it set up for yoga anyways, so there was plenty of space. It was the first time I had hooped in ages! So much fun.

  5. Hip Mountain Mama June 5, 2010 at 7:21 pm #

    Great giveaway! I enjoy hooping at music festivals and in the back yard with my kiddos. I am hoping to get some materials very soon and have the kids help me make some hoops…can’t wait! Love the hoop blog!!

  6. Josie June 5, 2010 at 7:42 pm #

    I hooped out in a huge natural dirt basin in a forest. I’m currently learning more flow and how to incorperate moves like the vortex with other moves.

    I most recently hooped with my fire hoop outside while it was calm before the storm that just hit us. Hoop dancing is my life and I love your clothing.

    I’ve also been a fan on Facebook and have posted your link 😀

    Can you believe….I made my own hoop before you even got here. My first and only hooping was a couple days ago when Paula, my friend, brought me all the stuff to make my own hoop. So my fave move is watching my son, Taylor, hoop much longer than I can at this point!

  11. Maggie Howe June 5, 2010 at 8:39 pm #

    Usually I hoop in my living room or backyard…occasionally with friends when I’m lucky 🙂 but I really do enjoy solo hooping. I’m currently working on shoulder hooping, and doing dancer yoga pose while hooping. Thanks for the great giveaway! 🙂 PS I posted this to my FB page and I’m already a fan of hoop pretty 🙂

  12. Natalie stenger June 5, 2010 at 8:52 pm #

    I hoop at the park by my old elementary school. It has a huge feild and a great view of my city! 😉 I recently returned from a hooping retreat and it has changed my life. I can’t stop hooping, I want to do it for the rest of my life! My favorite moves are the jump through and monkey arms. I have found so much peace and love through hooping, I can’t believe how happy it makes me.

  13. Adina June 5, 2010 at 9:04 pm #

    What a super cute shirt! I was just hooping out in our back “yard” (we live in a condo…so it isn’t really ours), in the first sun that Portland has had in a couple of weeks. So just hooping in the sun was pretty awesome, but I am finally able to keep the hoop up going both directions on my waist, and starting to be able to turn with it. So much fun!!

    Hi, I just found you on Twitter and I love what you are doing! I last hooped in my break today between dance classes. I really like off body hooping and am trying to learn some iso’s. I’m going to the UK hoop gathering in one month, can’t wait!

    Good luck, love and light

    I hooped at my in-laws and sadly left my hoop at their place 😦 I’m getting it back tomorrow 🙂 Right now I’m working on keeping it around my waist! I am a beginner and my hoop is a bit small for me, but I just got the supplies to make one that will fit me better. Thanks for the inspiration, Sara!

  19. Jennie June 5, 2010 at 10:15 pm #

    I’ve been hooping outside, in my living room, and even in the water at the beach. I am still learning helicopter and hooping at the knees.

  20. CHRISTINA KARNES June 5, 2010 at 10:16 pm #

    I hooped last in the backyard with the kids. I am working on getting it going in both directions.

    I love that t-shirt!! It’s so beautiful and looks like it would be super-soft. I’ve been hooping on my bed due to lack of space and am practicing really basic hooping around my middle and hips. Yay!

  24. Krystal June 5, 2010 at 10:20 pm #

    The last time I hoola hooped was about 2 years ago. I picked up a hoop from the store thinking I could try to get my dog to run through it…I just ended up having fun hoola hooping myself 😛

    Awesome give-away!! I hooped in my backyard with my daughters the other day. We take turns putting on shows for each other.Currently I am working on bringing the hoop back down around my body after lifting it. I can do it–but it ain’t pretty—yet!

    I JUST hooped out in my backyard, while dressed up as my clown character Lemondrop. I took a picture too, to sent it to you!
    I’m still loving the vortex, but I’m really trying to improve my chest hooping and trying to get the knee to waist.

  29. Cheryl June 5, 2010 at 10:46 pm #

    I last hooped in my living room today b/c i’m a beginner 🙂 But I am LOVING it and am excited about the progress I’m making in such a short time. Thanks for making me want to hoop!!

  30. Suyai June 5, 2010 at 11:12 pm #

    In my granny’s garden among roses… I don’t know any special moves yet, I’m a newbie (if we don’t take into account my childhood experience). Thank you for your inspiration!

  31. That Crazy Family June 5, 2010 at 11:37 pm #

    WooHoo!! Hmm most recently would be tonight in the field behind our RV showing the grandparents! My favorite move currently is the elbow hooping!!

  32. mary mc June 6, 2010 at 12:42 am #

    I’m just learning to hoop. The clouds parted today and I was finally able to hoop outside with my two boys. I’ve been working on getting it up to my hands in the air from my hips 🙂

  33. Julie June 6, 2010 at 1:28 am #

    Since I haven’t had a hoop since I was a little girl it has definitely been a while!! I am going to be getting my first real hooping hoop hopefully in the next week or two, but I DID pick up a small toy hoop at Walmart earlier today and made my husband laugh when I actually got it going around my arm!!

    I am SO looking forward to going to a hooping meetup next Sunday afternoon in Dallas and to getting my own hoop and hooping barefoot in our tiny backyard on the thick green grass while looking out over the beautiful pond behind our house (especially when the sun is just rising or setting)!!

    • livelightly June 7, 2010 at 4:00 am #

      Julie…
      Where is the Dallas hooping meetup? I have friends there and want to make sure they know about it! 🙂

  34. Amber June 6, 2010 at 2:01 am #

    i hooped with my friend’s weighted hoop in my living room. It was too heavy to enjoy. I’m hoping to make my own soon.

  35. Angela June 6, 2010 at 2:38 am #

    Just bought the stuff to make my first hoop. Hopefully I will be hooping it up soon. 🙂

  36. Tracy June 6, 2010 at 2:45 am #

    I hooped this afternoon at a Superhooper LED hoop class in Columbus, Ohio – colorful fun!

  37. Melissa June 6, 2010 at 3:31 am #

    My back deck at dusk, it is a heavenly time. I love turning my hoop above my head on my wrist.

    Please don’t enter me in the giveaway as that shirt would NEVER stretch over this belly I’ve got going on.

    I just want to say that you were my inspiration to start hooping (as of this week, I’ve been hooping…a week). I last hooped in my driveway and right now, I’m trying to keep the hoop from falling as I learn to go in both directions.

    I need a hoop group.

  40. Paula June 6, 2010 at 3:40 am #

    In the back yard of our mutual friend Natalie in Longmont! Funny pics of us and the kids. Been hooping about 3 weeks … best trick is keeping it from falling to the ground any way I can!

    I’m super new to hooping, but have been reading your blogs for a while. My oldest daughter and I are working on making some sassy hoops! Hers has leopard print on it! Ayhow, I’d love the shirt and really enjoy reading your blogs! 🙂

    hooped in the grassy backyard. still trying to get the hang of moving it from knees waist… and love every minute!

  47. Elizabeth June 6, 2010 at 12:43 pm #

    I haven’t hooped in awhile, but i’m itching to get home (from college) in about 4 days so that I can pick up some hoop making supplies and go to town!

  48. Rebecca June 6, 2010 at 3:56 pm #

    The last I hooped was yesterday during some down time at our huge multifamily garage sale. I am currently loving chest hooping after I FINALLY got the hang of it. I am working on working on moving my arms in and out of the hoop while chest hooping, am also working on more control with the barrel roll and the booty bounce. I am loving it!

  49. Hyla June 6, 2010 at 3:58 pm #

    I’m another new hooper inspired by you and your blog…just started last week. I hooped in my living room yesterday between random household chores and gardening. I think I’m addicted already!

  50. joanne June 6, 2010 at 3:59 pm #

    last place i hooped was out in the morning sun while it lasted..the movements i have been loving at the moment are chest hooping related..arms in and out …barrel rolls..and knee hooping..nothing too fancy yet.

  51. shawna June 6, 2010 at 4:19 pm #

    I most recently hooped in my office, which is a little sad because I absolutely adore vertical hooping (horizontal is good, too, of course!), which is hard on the ceilings. My current hooping nemesis is vertical isolation.

    Ok, haven’t hooped since I was a kid and had no idea there was a hooping movement… Now I want to get a hoop and try this out! Loved your video- wanted to cry for some reason.
    AND my kids (and husband) would LOVE this!
    Thanks for ANOTHER great idea!

  61. Kat June 7, 2010 at 3:23 am #

    I haven’t EVER hooped before, but I’d love to try it, especially after seeing your video. I did try to pick up a kids hoop a few weeks ago thinking of you and this blog, but I was awful! I couldn’t even keep it around my waist. Looks like I need a lot of work!

    • livelightly June 7, 2010 at 3:40 am #

      Kat…you couldn’t keep it up because you’re not a KID! 🙂 You need an ADULT-sized hoop! 🙂 The hoop should come up to about 2 inches above your belly button.

  62. Cori June 7, 2010 at 4:05 am #

    I hooped in my living room most recently, and somehow DIDN’T break the coffee table 🙂 I JUST started hooping so I’m simply getting used the basic “hula” movement. Hoping I can learn chest hooping next!

  63. Jenna June 7, 2010 at 12:45 pm #

    I last hooped on the back porch! I’ve just about got chest hooping down and am attempting a spiral movement (not sure what to call it, but when you take it from your waist to top of head, back to waist… up down up down!)

After school packs of kids swing by on their way home and give a few hoops a try, they think it’s so cool and FUN!!! It’s really awesome, I get a few more people hooked each day including the kids parents! Also signed up for the emails list fora double chance to win!! YAY! Pick me! Pick me!

    as a new hooper, we usually have all the neighborhood kids over in the backyard and go crazy! we bought a whole bunch of supplies and teach the kids how to make their own…they are so inspired…and inspiring! it’s awesome watching them believe in themselves.

    go hooping!

  68. Kim June 7, 2010 at 4:05 pm #

    I just bought my hoop online yesterday. I love hula dancing and hope it translates to using an actual hoop 🙂

    just came in from morning hooping with my girls (4 & 1 yo) we hoop it up in the common lawn of our cohousing community! i love it when our neighbors sit down to watch us and cheer us on! i am new to every move and i’m loving it all!!

    I hooped outside in my sunny backyard, trying to be careful not to step in any doggy land mines (it was impossible!). I’m still a huge beginner. I was working on my corkscrews, and I managed to get it! Now I’ve just gotta work on fine-tuning it 🙂

    You’re also the one who got me into hooping, so thank you!

  73. Ashley Nicole June 8, 2010 at 12:04 am #

    I most recently hooped today in my yard. I find that’s the most convenient place for me to hoop, especially when on one in my city is up for a jam. I had the Pretty Lights pandora station on which always gets me going, and I’m currently love love loving experimenting with different breaks and reversals. Whether it’s with my hands or arms, there’s nothing like flowing to a song and switching directions with your hoop to follow the groove. I’m still a beginner with tomorrow being my OFFICIAL 1 month hoopiversary!

  74. Jill Brown June 8, 2010 at 1:57 pm #

    I last hooped in my garage with my 3 month old lab at my feet. 🙂 My motivation to not drop the hoop! I love waist and hip hooping! Can’t wait to learn more moves! It’s such a WoNdErFuL way to GeT MoViNg!! 🙂 ❤ – Jill

    I was hooping on Sunday at Wash Park in Denver and learned the ankle carry hand off: http://hooptricks.org/2010/03/ankle-carry-hand-off/ 🙂 There are a few other new tricks I learned too, but not sure what they’re called 😉

  77. Trish June 8, 2010 at 4:04 pm #

    2 days ago, I hooped out in the street in front of our house with my 11 year old daughter, in a light rain. It was cool and breezy but we warmed up pretty quickly! She was working on a behind the back weave with poi, and I was working on smoothing out the 3 beat weave (with hoops) that I just got the day before that. SO excited! It has been eluding me and I am feeling a warm glow that it’s coming along.

  78. ~Tara June 8, 2010 at 6:06 pm #

    I hooped right outside our RV in the deep south of Louisiana…hot and humid makes for some sluggishness but the boys joined in and we had a blast. 🙂

    I hooped this weekend at a small little festival in NC near Lake Gaston to benefit family farms. And always with my fellow hoopers in Richmond!!

  83. Ashlotte June 8, 2010 at 7:53 pm #

    Most recently I hooped innnnnnnnn… a film stage. Yeah, like the type they film movies in. I wasn’t BEING filmed, but I go to a communication arts school, and the film stage was empty and it was too hot to hoop outside so… voila! Hooping in the film stage! Lately I’ve been really digging jump-ins and jump-outs (not technical terms, i know) and I’ve convinced myself that I’m digging isolations (even though I can’t figure them out yet!)

  84. Mariah June 8, 2010 at 8:02 pm #

    On sunday I went to Dolores Park in San Francisco for my friend’s birthday picnic. It seemed like there was a cloud of fog over the rest of the city but the sun shined bright on our little picnic. As more friends showed up more hoops did too, not to mention some poi and some flow wands. At one point I walked down the hill and looked back up at our beautiful family of circus freaks. Life is beautiful and all the freaky people make the beauty of the world!

  94. TraciFree June 9, 2010 at 4:13 pm #

    Hooped last night up a canyon at a family picnic. I love the look in little kids eyes when they see me hope and ask to try it. The Lasso is their favorite trick.

  95. Dagny June 9, 2010 at 5:25 pm #

    I was just hooping out in the driveway to calm down a bit. It’s so meditative! And I just got the “vortex” down which I’m pretty excited about.

    I just had some hoops made for my daughters and I; as our hoop journey is just beginning. We were hooping in our big, beautiful yard last evening.

    I hooped in my backyard the day before yesterday. It was a gorgeous, sunny day and I couldn’t pass up making a few practice videos with my trusty little camera. I was attempting to hoop at least a little every day, but the weather turned for the worse and there is unfortunately no room to hoop inside without hitting/breaking things. Hopefully tomorrow will bring warmer weather!

    Nothing fancy, but I hooped in my backyard this afternoon. I’ve been working on flipping the hoop up and around from the horizontal plane, also escalator variations, and anything that makes the hoop tumble in crazy, unexpected ways.

    I just started teaching hooping at our local YMCA and am loving it (and how great it is to spread joy to people ages 5-71 – yes, I had a 71 year old take the class last week). This would be the perfect shirt to wear to my classes! I also hooped with 20 fabulous kindergarten students last week. What a trip!

    The last time I hooped was a few days ago in the side yard in my apartment building. I just had a baby so its been several months since I have hooped. I still know all my old tricks now Im trying to get this knee hooping down.

    Just came in from hooping on the Prairie, well the KOA in WaKeeney, KS. Mainly working on getting some flow into my movements, haven’t had a lot of time to get any new movements down.

    Hello! the last place I hooped was backstage at my dance performance, and it was the first time most of my fellow dancers had ever seen me hoop. I was exhilarating to have an audience that was engaged in what I was doing- unlike my parents and siblings who have seen me hooping a zillion times and are no longer amazed by it. heheheh.
    Im currently loving shoulder hooping and isolations, which i JUST got the hang of. I’ve been working on isolations for MONTHS! and now that i’ve got them down (mostly) they’re so fun :]

    I’m absolutely new to hooping! Just went to SummerCamp music festival, and I was blown away with the hoopers….so much that I’m starting to hoop myself 😀

    I’ve only hooped in my living room. I’m working on the lifts, but I keep smacking myself in the face. 🙂

    I last hooped in my living room, after moving my couch to a new place specifically to make room for indoor hooping. 100 degrees outside, makes perfect sense. I’m just loving being able to keep the hoop off the ground!

    And, I liked the facebook page too.

    I am somewhat new to hooping, I’ve made some hoops but not had lots of time to practice. So far, I am loving it! I made a hoop for each of my daughters (7 &4yrs) and they are so good already! 🙂
    Most recently, we’ve hooped outside in our yard.

    I have been hooping indoors to escape this awful Texas heat. I’m still working on hooping above my head and lifting and lowering down. 🙂

  123. Jill Brown June 10, 2010 at 4:50 pm #

    I tweeted! 🙂 YEAH!

    Love the shirt design! Soo cute.
    Last place hooped? That would be my living room 🙂 I’m still working on chest hooping with arms. Not quite working it yet … but I’m patiently waiting for the “Ahh Haa” moment where it just clicks!
