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.
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!!
