CHICKBANDS GIVEAWAY!!

Today I get to do one of my favorite things--host a great giveaway!

A while back the ever-fabulous Marlene did a Chickbands giveaway. While I didn't win, it made me aware of the product and I quickly fell in love. These are VERY reasonably priced headbands that really, honest-to-goodness do not slip. Here's what I love about them:

  • Price point
  • The fact that they don't slip, as mentioned. I think they are lined in velvet, which does an amazing job. 
  • The HUGE range of colors, widths, and patterns they come in (I own 4 sparkly ones, an argyle, and a houndstooth, and there are like 15 others I want to buy)
  • They ship quickly and at a reasonable shipping cost ($1 for your whole order, I believe)
  • The owner, Kara, is an absolute sweetheart and is great to work with if you ever do have a question. For instance, I recently sent a Chickband to a friend as a gift and asked if she would include a gift note and remove price information, both of which she did and was so nice about it!
I wear them to run in (and this is proof that I don't just share the "good" pictures. What? It was early.) This was this morning in my silver sparkly super-skinny. 

And every now and then I wear them to work. This is my argyle 5/8 inch Chickband.

The only caution I might issue is that the really wide bands don't sit flat enough to be comfortable for running. They work great for everyday wear though, and you may find that they work for running for you. Maybe my noggin' is just a funny shape. :)

Now, to the good part. I have 3 Chickbands to give away. Here's how to enter. 

Mandatory entry:
You need to do two things. Go like the Chickbands Facebook page (and let me know that you did), and check out the Chickbands Etsy shop and let me know what you like. Leave one total comment to let me know you did these two things. 

Bonus entry: As a second comment, follow my blog and let me know!

I will pick THREE winners on Monday. Good luck!!

I don't know if I'm eligible for this, since you know me and know that I am the least runnerly person ever. :( But I do like the Chickbands (on Facebook, even), and if they really and truly don't slide, then I think I need one. I have never been able to tame my hair at the gym and it is driving me batty. So, with that said, I really like the Kristina thin chickband. Please and thank you.

Oh, and you know that I blog-stalk you :)

Super cute headbands. I'll enter and perhaps walk vigorously with it in. I am impressed at your continuing running while progressing towards impending munchkin. Your picture of your silvery sparkly is so adorable btw!

I liked them on Facebook and also perused their Etsy sight. I really like the red polka dot ones & I could wear them to work. I honestly might get some teal sparkle ones for my color guard next fall.

$1 for shipping and handling? Why can't everything be like that? Why does it cost $19.95 to send me a box?
