..and fell in love. I purchase this "Supernova Watermelon Sparkle" hoop from HoopMamas, and she was such a sweetie! She even let me change the tape up a little - make the Olive Green into UV Pink (yes, the UV pink, and the UV green will glow if ever I'm around a black light. I don't forsee that, but you can never be too sure). I adored the fact that I could get a hoop that glowed; and the pink sparkle was drool-worthy.
HoopMamas gave an excellent guide on how to pick your hoop - size and weight. And they had tons of useful information on their website. They have sold so many hoops that I knew I coudl trust them, and their feedback is wonderful - everyone seems so happy. I knew I wouldn't end up with another 'Big-Box Store Experience'. The hardest part was just picking a colour-scheme - but they offer 100% customizable hoops, so if you have an excact idea in mind, they can cater to you :) I just saw the sparkly pink and bright green and knew that one was mine.
I just ordered it today...a little reward for all the hard Etsy work I've been doing and sales that have been coming in (got to give back to other Etsy sellers :D ). So I cannot wait until it comes into the mail! Then maybe I'll post a fun video on my first ride with it...we all know that will be a laugh :D
