These were really emotional days for me. I was happy, sad, disappointed, excited, crying, jumping from happiness and many many others. And I am extremely grateful I could be a part of this amazing event (huge thank you to @worldskateofficial and @pzsw_org ) 🌎💙💚 There is a crowd of people without who I wouldn't come and do my best. In first order I'd like to thank @romankotormus who share with me passion for skating and he was there for me when I needed and @aleksey_martsenyuk for training with me and encouraging me to go 💙💚
And many many other non skaters and skaters who supported, challenged and believed in me 💜💞
I’m Lauren, but in the Pin Up world I am better known as Bettie Batz @bettie.batz Growing up I always wanted to be famous, I was named after Lauren Bacall, my idols were Madonna and Marilyn Monroe, all very fierce women. Some fun facts about me:
• On my paternal mother’s side I have blue blood in my family genes. So I like to think I stood a chance marrying Prince William. • I am the mother of a 14 year old daughter and I love dancing in public to embarrass her. • Don’t let all the black fool you, whereas I love Halloween and the occult, my favorite season is summer. • I grew up on a ranch in Southern California and learned how to drive a tractor before I learned how to drive a car. • I was inspired to do Pinup modeling to prove to other short non traditional women that there is no cookie cutter look to Pinup and a little bit of confidence and risk goes a long way.

I made another lil tutorial, y’all! This one is an intro to transitions!
1. “The Book”: I was taught this one with the phrase “open the book, close the book.” You open your hips and place one foot behind the other. Heels should be touching. This is “opening the book.” You will also adjust your shoulders so that you’re no longer facing forward, but rather to the side (kind of like 1st position in ballet). Then, “close the book” by placing your other foot parallel to the first foot. Your body should now be facing the opposite direction and you should be skating backwards.
2. “The Pivot”: with this method, you pivot on your toes and heels. It’s easier if you feel comfortable balancing on your toes and heels. You will stagger your feet so one foot is behind the other. Put your weight on your toes, and then pivot your shoulders backwards (your body and hips should follow). If your left foot is forward, pivot over your right shoulder. If your right foot is forward, pivot over your left. If you’re skating backwards and transitioning forwards, you’ll do the exact same, except put your weight on your heels rather than toes. (Hope the slow-mo helps!) .
3. “The Hop”: this transition is essentially the same body movement as the Pivot, but rather than resting your weight on either toes or heels, you jump! It’s a good way to get comfy with 180s. I found that when i got used to the Pivot i automatically started adding a jump. (Again, hope the slow-mo is useful!) .
Everybody comes in with different skills and different moves that feel comfortable. I’m no expert, but I found these three to be helpful for me when I was learning to skate. I found transitions super scary at first, so if you’re in the same boat I hope these explanations and vids help a little! 😘😘😘
Have y’all checked my story today? Did a little “thrift with me” session on there 🤙🏼 I’ll post a preview of everything I picked up for y’all tomorrow! Would y’all want me to do more of those in the future? Let me know ↓

Went roller skating for exercise today on my new #candigirlskates. Burned almost 1000 calories!! Had fun! Took breaks to rest my unused adductor muscles. Or abductor not sure which but I’ll learn. Roller skating makes me so happy. #rollerskating#skating#rollergirl
Наверно, желающих смотреть my scene на моей странице, все же больше, раз они набирают больше лайков, чем барбейки 🤔
