Do you hoop?

If you don't, you should! And yes, when I say hoop, I mean hula hoop. It's not just for kids and it's a whole lot of fun. Me and my bestie started to get into it about a year ago. We both started up with cheap kids hoops (hers was a light up one and mine was a bright, glittery yellow) but recently we have progressed to more professional hoops.

Both of us bought our hoops from this wonderful etsy shop run by a lovely woman named Casey who is super-sweet. She sells a wide variety of hoops that you can customize with different kinds of grip tape so that your hoop is 100% you. You can choose from regular or collapsible and she even gives you all the info you need to determine which weight and diameter is right for you. I now own two of these beauties by her, this one being my latest. Mine is in teal star/moon tape and plum purple tape. It's pretty and mystical and I love it!

Unfortunately the weather has been kind of chilly as of late so hooping outside hasn't been an option. I want the 70 degree (F) days to come back! There isn't enough room on my dorm to get my hoop on properly. The most I can do is stand in place, and I would be terrified to try more than one at a time.

But once it gets nice out again I fully anticipate sunny afternoons outside on the campus quad with loud music and lots of hooping and dancing around. Preferably barefoot and in a fun skirt.
