It is one day away from the even that my friend Aunt Joyce refers to as a national holiday: The ladies long programs at US nationals. America produces the ultimate ice princesses. Sure these girls may have issues with jumps from time to time, but no one does a layback like them, or includes a properly extended spiral in the short program (despite no longer being a required element).
My biggest surprise/joy from the short programs was Caroline Zhang. Girl is testimony that if you work hard, fix your diet and up your cardio, you too can make a come back. Actually felt teary after she finished. What a babe.
I will post more videos when they are available. Im sure its a NBC issue. Boo them.

Ballet gear.... I'm going to take a big leap and join an adult ballet class again. I need tights, skirts etc.
New skating boots. After many years of loyal service, mine are starting to die. As in, they are held together with tape, and as much as I feel that is very Oksana Biul pre Victor Petrenko, I dont dig over the boot tights, so, new white fancy boots please!
A Baby G watch in that blue colour I love. So 90's.
Fairy lights. Boy and I are moving house in a couple of months, so v keen to start collecting things to style the house.
