Wow, I can't believe I'm really doing a blog giveaway! I feel so powerful. Muwahaha! I love the Muwahaha's! (High 5 if you get that reference)
Ok, I'm really digressing. So anyway, some blogs I subscribe to get really cool things from companies to test, review and then giveaway. When my friends and I met to start organizing a fundraising race (more to come on that later), I found out that new friend Sandy makes these wonderful no slip headbands. She is just getting started, and my amazing runner friend MaryAnne was raving about how great they are.
I kept a few to show to my clients and try one out. Here I am rockin' my cute pink and brown headband. (and yes I am in my jammies) Wow was she right! Nothing stays in my hair. Headbands of every kind slip out. (I think I must be missing some headband holding part of my skull.) So I wore it Friday afternoon and evening to see how it went during normal life. I actually forgot it was even on my head! When I changed for bed, there it was, in the same exact place I put it 8 hours before. That may not be a big deal to most people, but to me it is amazing! I never, ever wear headbands because they slip off my head.
Next morning came a bigger test, the long run. Let's see how it does through 10 miles of moving, grooving and dripping wet sweat. I got myself all ready, put my hair up in a ponytail and slid the headband up into place. Surely there was no way it would stay put. After all, it's one thing for it to hold with my hair down, but with my hair up there was nothing to hold it in place.
What can I say? 10 miles, 1 hour and 44 minutes later, it hadn't moved a bit. What's more, I wasn't able to jump in the shower right away and it stayed put for a couple more hours till I pulled it out. That is awesome!
To top it all off, they are darling! When my 14 year old daughter saw them, she immediately started trying them on and asking me to get her some. Here she is modeling a cute floral style. Fashion and function all in one, who could ask for anything more?
So here's the giveaway. One follower will win their choice of Sandy's headbands and entering is super easy. Do all of the following:

Sandy doesn't have a website yet, so if you are interested in purchasing a headband for the lovely low price of $10 plus any shipping, post which one you want and I'll hook you up! (Please excuse the bad photos, they are from the phone. My camera has been packed in the teenage girls bag for girls camp)
