Superhooper Polypro Pair Giveaway

28 Jun

I absolutely adore my Superhooper polypro hoops…so when Lara offered to give away a PAIR to one of my readers, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to spread the love!

Their new line of “sea glass” hoops immediately caught my eye. I LOVE the ocean…and these remind me of the time I’ve spent there. These colors are absolutely beautiful. They have now added yellow translucent as well…and I’m kind of in love with that one πŸ™‚

If you’re new to polypro hoops, you can read about my love for them here.

Look! My toes match my hoop! πŸ™‚ Everyone does that, right?

A friend of mine sent me this video and I loved it so much I wanted to share it with you too! It’s a short little documentary about Stefanie Moser’s experience with the hoop. Sweet & inspirational.

Be Inspired

22 May

Lately I’ve been watching more hoop videos to inspire my hoopy self back into a daily practice. This one is awesome. There is just something magical about a festival setting…and a girl with dreads. Probably also explains why this older clip of Spiral is one of my all time faves as well. I could watch it over and over! πŸ™‚

What are you watching/doing right now that is inspiring you in your own practice?
New music? Videos? New moves? Share!

The Hooping Life Premiere :: Denver Style

7 May

When I first started hooping, there were whispers that a hooping documentary called “The Hooping Life”Β  was being made…the first of it’s kind. Two years later…I finally had the pleasure of seeing it premiere in Denver! It was the perfect start for my journey back to hooping after giving birth to little Emma 2 weeks ago.

There were lovely vendors with hoop goodies and more…

I caught up with some of my hoopy friends… Nick, Danielle, and MeGzz.

…and my girl Tracy.

Astral Hoops was there spreading the LED hoop love. If you’ve never seen their hoops…be sure to check them out. Incredible! Saving my pennies…they blew my mind!

Danielle and Kanyon opened up the stage for the performances and the show.

Tetra Incendia Fire Troop lit it up.

The actual documentary was very well done…with years of research and interviews included. We laughed and hollered…but also saw that hooping has truly CHANGED LIVES forever. From the inner city hoop programs to coming out of depression…we were all reminded of the power of the hoop.

There were many live performances at the event…but being that I was juggling a newborn and 2 cameras, I was only able to get four of them πŸ™‚ Excuse the shaky camera! Emma woke up right at they were starting!

One of my favorites was Nick & kiT…they have a fantastic connection and energy and are a joy to watch. Check out their promo here. Enjoy…

*A big thanks to Holly HooPs for being the coordinator for this event!

Rainbow PolyPro Explosion

6 Apr

I recently received a big ‘ol box of rainbow on my doorstep…rainbow polypro hoops that is! Lara at Superhooper sent them to me to try out and I couldn’t be more thrilled with them.

My favorite part is the “friction-fit” connection…which means no rivets, screws, etc. So easy to take apart and put together. I love that the color is actually IN the plastic…so there is no tape to scuff. I can throw these around all day and they still look amazing! I can even take the slew of them to the park and not worry when two 8 year old boys claim them as their own for the entire time we are there. Yes, it happened. πŸ™‚

I think I may be in love. Seriously.

These hoops feel SO NICE. Nice to touch. Nice to spin. Nice nice nice. If you’re still wondering if you should “go polypro”…check out Lara’s info here. You can buy the rainbow colors here. At the time of this post, they are on sale!

However, you might want to wait because we are going to be doing a giveaway for an entire prism pack (38″ and under)…woooooo!! That’s a $229 value! Stay tuned for the announcement in the next couple of days.

I made a little video of me and my rainbow. I was in the living room with very limited space (and this resulted in a little chandelier mishap towards the end…oops!)…but when hoop inspiration strikes, you gotta go with the flow πŸ™‚

The Damage:

Thanks again Lara…for the hoops and for all you do for the hooping community!
Be sure to check Lara’sΒ  Hooping Family Tree Project if you haven’t already!

*side note: these are sized at 34″ and have a full sanding (no interior tape).
