Friday Favourites

I’m a bit late with the Friday Favourites, but a few good things happened over the past week, so late or not I’m going to share what has been going on. I hope you have all had a great week as well, as always feel free to share with me any highlights from your week.

The High Tea Party. A couple of girlfriends and I went to The High Tea Party last weekend which was held at the Hilton Hotel in Adelaide. It was a lovely event with nice food and lots of shopping stalls as well. So all very bad for the waistline and wallet, but still a lot of fun!

Massage. I had a remedial massage last Monday by a guy who I haven’t been to in years. He used to come into my old work and do office massages but then finished up with that company and I’d lost contact with him till I heard about another lady I know seeing him and was able to get his number. It was excruciatingly painful because I haven’t had a proper remedial massage in so long, but then my body felt so good and was holding so much less tension in the muscles.

The Big Chop. I had all my hair cut off. Ok well, not all of it, but a significant amount of it. I’d kept my hair long, I don’t mind long hair and my now ex-partner preferred it long. But then I decided it’s time to go back to having short hair which I absolutely love, and it just feels oh so good!

Nutrimetics. At The High Tea Party the Nutrimetics company was there and I’d been tossing up whether or not to join as a Consultant and so I took the opportunity to chat with a couple of the ladies about how the company is run and what the profits are for it. In the end I decided to join up. I’m a bit nervous and a bit excited about the opportunity.

Lunch. On Thursday I caught up with one of my work mates for lunch which was nice. We haven’t gone out for a while so it was nice to sit down and have a good chin wag for a while.

How was the last week for you all, was it a good one?

Take care,

Jas

Friday Favourites, 23 October

Well the last week has been a really busy week for me. I was still at the Pole Festival so a lot of my highlights have come from that!

Handstands. As an adult have you tried doing handstands? It is so hard, and so much more technical than I thought it was as a kid! I did a couple of these workshops at Pole Festival, and it was challenging but it was so much fun and I learnt heaps about how to balance in handstands.

Static pole. I have trained on the spinning pole and really haven’t done anything on a static pole. So a couple of the classes that I did at Pole Festival were based on how to make dancing on a static pole “flow”. It’s a completely different kind of movement to what I’m used to and so I felt like I got heaps out of those workshops.

Burlesque. Oh this was a bit of saucy fun indeed. I learnt a few burlesque moves to teasingly take off clothes and put on a nice, tasteful, strip show.

Bruise pride. Every pole dancer knows this one. You talk to the other girls, or your partner or people at work or whatever and you’re like “look at all my bruises! I got this one from doing this trick/this class” etc. There’s a certain level of pride associated with the collection of bruises because hey I’ve been achieving something and doing cool tricks!

Coming home. Despite the fact that I had heaps of fun at Pole Festival, I still loved coming home. For me I just love coming home after a trip and being surrounded by my own things, my own shower and my own bed. It’s heavenly!

Remedial massage. I thought after getting back from Pole Festival that after dancing for a few hours each day that my muscles would be really achy and I’d need a massage. My muscles were actually fine, they didn’t feel sore or fatigued. But I decided to keep this massage time anyway, and oh boy was it painful! My body might not have felt sore but I tell you so many of my muscles were really, really tight so there was a lot of pressure point therapy, but at least those muscles feel looser now, whew.

I hope you all had a great week too, let me know in the comments below what the highlights of your week were.

Take care,

Jas
