Revisiting the idea of hula hooping

Posted on April 24, 2011 at 3:21pm 1 Comment

Lately, I have been feeling rather inadequate in my hula hooping. I feel as if I am making no progress and have ran into a roadblock of inspiration. This roadblock as been going on for a few months, and I am honestly a little discouraged. My tricks, dance and flow are no where near where I want it to be.

Hey!!!  Yeah, my snow pics were taken on Lake Erie...when spring arrives, the ice pushes towards shore and creates these ice mountain things...which is what I was standing on!!!  It was a great day in my neck of the woods...winters are harsh!!  :o)

I waited six months to fire hoop. I made my own, which takes a lot of work. It is possible though and quite a bit cheaper. I recommend quick wicks for fire hooping, or a collapseable fire hoop. Happy Hooping!
